    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!

    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. 

    Black is not a color though, go get ur kindergarten money refunded :)

    Ummmm... not quite. Extinction chron was where TOWWs notes started appearing and so did Tek dino varients.. Dirt piles was Halloween,

    I'm pretty sure he was talking about ARK: ARKaeology which started the Extinction Chronicles. You went around picking about dirt piles to get bones & some even gave some gear/saddles. I got a pretty decent tusi saddle out of one.

    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.

    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.

    RNG like random number generator random or range location random?, bcs you  have a limit of 150 eggs in one area.

    Español:Buenas a todo el mundo hoy he sido baneado por incumplir la norma de construir debajo del mapa estoy deprimido por saber que no voy a volver a jugar al juego por toda mi vida y ademas  mas desprimido porque iba a comprar el nuevo dlc.En fin en mis 5000 horas jugadas de play y pc me encontrado a mucha gente que incumplia estas normas y no habia sido baneada y pensaba que a mi me pasaria lo mismo.Bueno espero que al menos dejen de banear gente por hacer la base en un sitio que el mismo juego  te deja construir y al menos si baneas a alguien que la hace alli arregleis el susodicho bug.(Es bueno banear gente en vez de corregir vuestros errores)
    Si no teneis el juego si quereis seguir adelante habiendo tantos bugs os recomiendo el juego o al menos sus mecanicas.
    Un saludo

    English:Hello everyone, today I have been banned for breaking the rule of building under the map I am depressed to know that I will not play the game again for my whole life and also more depressed because I was going to buy the new dlc. My 5000 hours of play and pc played I found many people who violate these rules and had not been banned and I thought the same would happen to me. Well, I hope they will at least stop banning people for making the base on a site that he The same game lets you build and at least if you ban someone who does it there, fix the aforementioned bug. (It's good to ban people instead of correcting your mistakes)
    If you don't have the game, if you want to move on with so many bugs, I recommend the game or at least its mechanics.
    All the best
