    Small Tribes Rules Update

    A couple of weeks back, we announced that we would be honing the ruleset for Small Tribes servers along with implementing some teaming report requirements in order to make our Enforcement Team’s investigative process more efficient: 

    Quote

    The spirit of Small Tribes has always been to give players the opportunity to experience a tight group dynamic that is void of the scale and diplomacy of Official. We recognize it’s time to implement change in order to preserve the original concept--one we were hyped about along with our community! 

    Community Crunch 257: LiveOps Update, New Sponsored Mods, and more!

    We consulted with our enforcement team and had some much-appreciated talks with a large number of players from the Small Tribes community in order to hone our approach to improving quality of life and enforcement on these servers. So, without further ado, let’s get to it!

    Rules Overview

    One of the most impactful changes will be considering tribes benefitting from another tribe’s defenses as teaming. We are giving 4 weeks notice (23rd April 2021) before the enforcement team will act on these specific rules in order to provide tribes time to relocate or otherwise adjust defenses.

    We’re also clarifying that open-world PvP is okay. The rules will get into the nitty-gritty, but essentially, if it’s out in the open and away from a base and doesn’t include a FOB or a bunch of dinos that can be considered raiding meta dinos eg: box build racers etc, it’s fair game to PvP freely and grab those kits. We want players to be able to have spontaneous fun in the open world without keeping tabs on who may randomly show up to join in. 

    Another impactful clarification is: Bases in different locations are open to being attacked by different tribes simultaneously. In essence, don’t build whatcha can't defend.

    Teaming ticket guidelines

    It’s impossible for the enforcement team to always join a server and investigate teaming reports live. Sometimes it happens and it’s great but we’d like to improve on the efficiency of investigations, especially retroactive enforcement action after the fact if the team is unable to check it out live and in the moment. 

    Unfortunately, the vast majority of teaming reports only include a screenshot of tribelogs and this is very rarely sufficient evidence for the enforcement team to take action. 

    We’ve put together a guide on what will assist you and the enforcement team in a more thorough investigation and swift enforcement action. Including a video greatly improves the quality of the investigation and  is encouraged: . 

    Video should include 

    • short overview of action going on 
      • Indicate the relative position of associated bases/FOBs 
      • Please show who owns them (use spyglass) 
      • If possible, try to show where the action is taking place (players/dinos)
    • spyglass of people names 
      • should show shortly before or after they teamed 
    • for longer videos 
      • include timestamps where stuff can be seen 
    • Tribe names and player names must be included in the videos
    • Videos should be submitted via a Youtube link (see help article) here

    Screenshots/videos of tribe logs is not sufficient evidence for action in the vast majority of cases.

    More Severe Enforcement Action: 

    Another change of note that works in harmony with more thorough submissions of evidence is the severity of enforcement action for certain cases. Enforcement will be looking at more frequently wiping “main” bases of offenders rather than focusing the FOB and player bans (those things will continue to happen too though!) Please be aware and take this as a heads up ;)

    The full updated rules can be found here
    Teaming ticket guide can be found here


    This round of changes may require further iteration but we consider some ongoing tweaking and potential growing pains worth it in order to provide a better experience for Smalls players in the long term. Looking forward to your feedback as we gauge how this plays out! 
     


     

    Fan Content Guidelines

    Eggscellent.jpg

    ARK content creators are a large part of the core of the ARK community.  Whether you share screenshots you take in-game, create videos of your experiences, stream, or make fan art, you are the force helping to create connections and communities along with driving millions of views and viewing hours of ARK content across social media platforms and streaming sites.  Sometimes knowing what is fair to use and in what context it can be used may be a little confusing. 

    Recently, we’ve been approached in regards to what type of content you can create and share without concerns that you’re infringing on the IP. So, to make this simple we've created a page for ARK fans to help bridge the gap and understand what’s fair game. 

    Fan Content Guidelines

    We are grateful for your unending enthusiasm and engaging content contributions showcasing ARK over the last 5 years. Here’s to the years ahead surviving, and thriving, in game!

    Another rather unexciting event.

    collect items, craft items, lose items when event ends, all delivered with a heaped spoonful of server outages, crashes and lag.

     

    There should be server events, competitions, egg hunts, rare finds.. but nope..instead we get more chibi pests and untamable dinos.

    3x breeding encompasses raising. 

    It's Easter event. Black isn't an Easter color.

    Its very exciting because any time ark gets extra rates thats time to log on and farm easier not have to spend 6 hours on baby times and makes the overall experience enjoyable. Chibis are rare items getting those legendary and very rare chibis is a stable of these events now. They also give event specific skins and items if you wanna host an egg hunt get the easter eggs and do one with your tribe.

    The extra rates are useless when the server is offline, suffering severe lag, and repeat crashes for the entire event (every event in the last 12 months we have been offline for at least 24 hours, and had an uncountable number of crashes, kicks and reboots)

    Event skins (bar 1) are the same as last year, some of which spawn in my inventory without needing an event

    For someone who plays for more than an hour or two of the event will get a rare chibi, they are nowhere near as rare as you are led to believe.. (and to be blunt, most are ugly as sin)

     

    Also; If your tongue was any deeper you would taste their breakfast.

    Saawwweeetttt love that event rate, but also not forgetting the double-edged sword it brings.  When it’s a full count rate hike for events like this it DOES kick the servers in the nuts in regards to stability, but I do enjoy the rates because I’m solo on official ( I like it that way, no bull to deal with).  I’m pretty much expecting the servers will be just about unplayable for the first 3-4 days between the times of 1130 am- ~230am the next morning EST.  That’s my concern, especially those of us that have been breeding, hatching and cryoing waiting on this event to raise.  In addition (not to sound like a whiny little kid), thank you WC!  We all know you don’t have to run the holiday events, and it’s something you do for us!

    I would also like to make another request to give officials capped flyer movement speed level up capabilities ( and common sense level up capabilities, NOT just only 3 levels being allowed on a quetz).  A removal of the transfer timers on pve ( that were put in place to solely battle duping), and maybe the ability to transfer element on pve (maybe a stretch I get it).  The last thing, maybe looking into rendering problems with transfers.  I, and probably everyone else out there has to relog upon transferring back to home server because base does not load in correctly, and with this big of an event coming up THAT is going to bring servers to their knees with people constantly transferring in and out of servers and having to relog afterwards to correct render.  Just A thought but please look into it.

    I saw this and started busting a gut! Lmao.  You are very correct sausage. The official xplay server I play on starts goin completely bug nuts when the server pop reaches 40-45 out of 70......The servers can’t handle that population on top of a major event....on top of people transferring in and out and having to relog to render bases.  The servers during events should be powered by The Rock......not Richard Simmons.

    But what about art work or screenshots?

    I assumed screen shots are IP but art like paintings? I mean I don't know what the rules are in general in painting and I don't currently paint.... I draw...But I know others do. So if you paint/draw an argentavis rider and it's inspired by ARK it's WC ip? But if you draw one and don't claim ark as inspiration it's not? THAT is where I'm confused.

    I CARE that black is not an Easter color....Many of us spent a very long time breeding 'black' to get full 'black' only to be told during the Fear Evo that OUR black is not "ACTUAL BLACK" ......gets screwed and must re--breed everything to make sure we bow down to WC 'version' of a color I learned in kindergarten.

    I have a JOB. I cant spend 10 hrs a day playing ARK, my only time is weekends or ***TIME I PLAN OFF IN IRL WORK SCHEDULE*** I feel like WC doesnt give a damn about these factors and it makes me want to just stop playing/let my base decay and move on.
