  • Community Crunch 252: Last Week In ARK and the Community Corner

    Last Week In ARK

    Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!

    In Last Week In Ark, we've seen some changes in the Players Killed By Weapon Type.  While things remained the same on XBOX, we saw slight changes in both XBOX and PC in the weapons players chose to use compared to last week. 

    Kills By Wild Dino Type shows us the same creatures but overall deaths by these four creatures have reduced by 14.9% when compared to last week.  We'll keep looking for more interesting stats to share with you!

    EVO Event

    There will be no EVO event this week


    Community Corner

    In light of all the amazing content being shared by the ARK community, we'll be expanding the Fan Art section and renaming it  'Community Corner' to include more than fan art.  You can expect to find a variety of community content that is being shared across social platforms (Twitch, Discord, Twitter, Youtube, Reddit, Facebook).

    I love the focus on community based things, as I feel the COMMUNITY crunch should be like that. I still would love a teaser or something though :/. Thanks for the community content though!

    Please show a different stat every week, or at least have a category where you show a revolving door of types of stat. It's gonna get real boring if you just show the same stats over and over again.

    Same thing goes for ARK 2 no point, the stupid lag that's been going on for years and years is not going to magically fix itself in ARK 2, it will be the same old bugs all over again, sadly a lot of ppl i already know have said when ARK 2 comes out they are done with WC. They don't want another round of the same old crap all over again

    Server performance is getting steadily worse.  Kicks and disconnects are commonplace at this point.  No real news of any kind, no evo event (also becoming commonplace), what exactly is going on with the game other than rushing the new products out?

    I'd much rather just have a server that stays online and doesn't crash and lag multiple times per day, 

     

    Apparently 15 people on 1x rates is too much to handle.

    I sere a lot of people complaining in here about lag and no evo event, like bro, im only in it for the game breaking bugs, it makes the game better, it adds a bit of action imo. I dont care if there is an evo event or not, it just means a little extra farming and waiting on breeding and taming, if you cant handle the vanilla game on vanilla settings, then go to an unoffical server noobs.

    Watch out now, there are some here who disagree with 90% of the players who have the same issues. 

    They want to know your specs, try to cover all up by saying it's just a tad laggy and hardly serveroutages. Then there will be a few who practicly live here and send the serveroutage link. Wich we keep on filling in with hopes and dreams.

    In the end, they not going to fix them. We adrressed numerous tickets, none action has been taken. 

    We still live on stone age servers. They are nog going to fix/improve them, nor give a few reasons why this keep on happening. Around 110 tickets we send in as a tribe (in the past 15 months), we got none feedback. We stopped counting. Gen2 is coming, ARK2 (rofl) so we just get pushed on and on. Raise all dinos x10, thats the only way some losses can get covered.

    WildCard isnt covering any losses whatsoever.

    There will always be the sycophantic cattle who think they will gain brownie points by kissing ass..

    But yeah, the servers suck.. they suck big time, we need to start getting answers on this, I'd even be up for paying a premium membership fee for access to higher performance server hardware.

     

    The server I play on was one of the new ones that dropped with the genesis release, save lag lasts for lasts for 30 to 60 seconds every 10 or so minutes, for some reason over the last few months it has decided to save twice in a row every time.

    so we get 30-60 seconds lag, unfreeze, 30 seconds later we get an addition 30-60 seconds of lag, then it unfreezes again and rolls back to the beginning of the first lag spike.. between these lag spikes we get sporadic disconnections and relentless bouts of rubber banding.

    This is one of the newer servers, but it has been like this and worse since week 2 of it being online.

    When this happens there is 50/50 chance you will be disconnected and login-locked, and about a 1 in 3 chance the entire server will crash and reboot, and about 10% of the time it just won't bother rebooting at all (like right now)

    Our server; NA PVE TheIsland 717 is currently down again, and has been down for 8 and a half hours so far, I personally have filled out an outage form, (I have NEVER received a reply from a ticket regarding server performance issues)

    For the people who want to buck pass and kiss ass,  

    Yes I know how to fill in a form correctly, No I'm not on wifi, I run a fiber optic connection and gigabit ethernet via short cable from the router, I have 3900x, 2070Super, 64gb ram, and it is all watercooled, performance is not an issue, networking is not an issue.

     

    The worst part of all this, I have never seen a single person from WC address these issues, they just ignore us and hold their hand out for more money.

    Thanks for not doing EVO events anymore.. The servers are working 2x better instead of 10x worse with EVO events on. ^_^
