    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

    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!

    Stop lying, 16 minute transfer timers are not to prevent duping they are an attempt to trap players on your already low population servers.  Reduce your timers!

    - Please show who owns them (use spyglass) 

    What use is from this statement?

    I always had hard time to see other players, dinos or structures names even if they don't move  and i stand close in front of them.

    Now showing video or pic  of a player name or dino when he move fast with spyglass is practically impossible  specially if it looks all full of squares.

    Random example taken from chat for demonstration only:

    I can attest to the situation as I am also one of the tribe members. My college semester is finishing up and ark has been a great break from the hard work. However, our servers not being online has not allowed me to enjoy some time off. All we are asking for is a little communication and, if at all possible, an eta on the situation. I really enjoy playing ark with my friends and we were extremely excited for this event this year! Just stinks that we aren't able to take advantage of it while other people in our cluster, on official, and small tribe servers are having a great time. If you are receiving too many forum posts to reply to, I'm sure a twitter post would suffice as I following some of the game devs and the official Ark account. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon! Happy Easter!

    Breh this game would be so on point if players spawned in with a few seconds of invincibility to prevent getting spawn camped by dinos and players

    You cant get spawn camped since there is cooldowns on beds and you spawn in random locations when not spawning at a bed

    With this recent mess of the official server crashes its near impossible to play. I cannot leave my base because I might die, I cannot go steal deino eggs to get event colors, I cannot even tame properly. There is very little to do, even feeding my dinos is absolutely horrible and took me now 20 years (5 crashes - one run). All because of the crashing mess. Its day 2 now of constant crashing - in the Easter Event ... I'm missing out a lot. I know they working on it but hell its taking dam long (I would have forgiven a day - sh1t happens) ...

    I'm extremely disappointed in Wildcard that they can't find a fix to THEIR mess and we have to suffer for it, their statement at the bottom of load screen reads " thanks for keeping Ark competitive and FAIR - FAIR! I don't see this part happening in return - it feels like a one way train.

    Is there an estimated time to this mess being fixed?

    Will we be compensated for it? (Extra event days for example)

    Now day 3 of not being able to play the event.

    Three days ago an announcement was given stating that WC is working on the crashing problem. There is no update, no response regarding it ... nothing ... Will we be missing the whole event? Struggle to feed dinos and not being able to breed nor enjoy the game in general???

    An update of some sort will be nice instead of leaving us in the dark for 3 days.
