  • Community Crunch 272: Plushie Giveaway Winners, EVO Event, and More!

    The entire team has been having a blast and enjoying all the Genesis 2 content you've been sharing.  Thank you for sharing your experiences with us!  As the team continues to iterate on some bugs from the latest launch, we wanted to take this time and talk about something we've seen across the minds of the survivor community:

    Though Genesis 2 marks the end of the journey and the end of paid content for ARK 1, in terms of new content and new experiences: there is much more in the works!  ARK's thriving community is full of talent and we'll be tapping into that talent for another community map to bring into the official fold later in the year. In addition to new maps, we're continuing to support the live-game with quality-of-life additions, TLC patches, updates, and fixes to pesky bugs.  New experiences will continue to roll in with community events and in-game events.  Summer Bash anyone 😉?

    Even though Genesis 2 concludes an epic journey we all embarked on, we are looking forward to the next one!

    Last week we showed you how to tame a Maewing, but it might help to learn how to trap one.  The trap master, captain fatdog, is back at it!

    Can you guys please add dung beetles and bee hives to the map?  Unless we can obtain honey in a drop (which I haven’t seen yet), making extraordinary kibble isn’t possible.  And other than snow owl pellets and creature poop, no way to fertilize crop plots.

    Beehives were added in a recent patch. As for fertilizer, there are many alternatives. First, yes, it is available in drops. Usually in batch of ~50 fertilizer or so. You can also use a Toilet like a civilized person or even produce it into a compost bin.

    I appreciate all that wildcard fixes but there are so many things that need to be fixed on console splitscreen still. The tether has been on split screen and non-ded for so long on console even though it was removed on pc. I don’t understand why they would change that on pc and leave the consoles with it. Me and my friends gave up playing because we couldn’t play without being crowded together. I would love if they would change this.

    Are you going to continue to ignore the OC players?

     

    We have been screaming out for at least 1 maybe 2  more PvE Gen2 servers and there has been absolutely no response from WC, You added 7 more to each EU and NA, making their server counts around 27 each, but OC has to continue playing on their 2 PvE servers.

     

    I don't usually complain but it is ridiculous. A week in and I am still struggling to get onto server.

     

    Other then that good job on the Map.

    They more than likely will continue ignoring. It's what they're best at. They may have added more NA servers but I still have a hard time getting into mine. There's currently 81 people on my server. It's ridiculous no matter what region it is.

    It would be pretty great to fix glitched out element in space biome too.

    Love gen 2, and the evo event is great, but it would be nice if I could actually stay connected to my server and play during 2x.

    Unfortunately the last drop I’ve gotten only had 25 in it, and they seem to be few and far between.  I do use a toilet, in real life.  For a lot of us out there dung beetles are quickest and easiest in early game.  Snow owls are efficient but are slightly inferior to fertilizer, not saying it’s not sufficient enough but they do have a lower fertilizer value.  I’ve used both and have specifically looked at that.  In regards to compost bins, the greenhouses and other plants that are utilized on officials can smoke an entire 10 count row of loaded dung beetles( I know because I have 10 in my C.I. base), you aren’t pulling the same volume from compost bins as you are from beetles or even owls for that matter.  Not without a whole separate build just for the bins.

    In regards to beehives, there was nothing that I saw that said they were adding beehives to the game.  Now for arguments sake I didn’t look at the patch notes either, nor the spawn map since they deployed the patch.  But I have not seen 1 beehive anywhere on the map as of yet, I will be looking though.

    What’s wrong with it?  They broke the space biome in the last patch.  No oil rocks, barely any obsidian and just about nothing in the black pearls, shards, ambergris/mutagel.  Even the metal spawns are quite light.  Now I just see they are deploying a patch, dunno if it’s to fix it or what but just hope they don’t break something else a little more crucial in the process.

    gen 2 is in all sense of the word "going out with a bang" although the horrendous mission inbalances and broken issues spoils it for me, but its impossible to hate this closing chapter of ark, its been fun a kick and a blast, an i look forward to the future

    Hello, I know, this is the third week, no rush. I just want you to know, that my game has not been saving. I understand that this is a new game. It is a genesis part 2, so obviously it will be buggy. It won’t even say that it is saving. Just loading. Thank you for your time. Have a nice week. Thank you!!!

    Bro, you gotta be kidding me, of corse they are not going to add deathworms, why would they? It is a smart business move because you then have to go to scorched. So you have to buy it.

    So there will be no anniversary event this year? 

    I've been seeing Party Dodos, and the cooking pot has been showing the skins/recipes for event items and chibis. I believe the anniversary event is currently active. If it's not working in a single player save or an unofficial server, there is a command to start it up, I believe, although I've never had to use it. I do know, however, that the command only works when the relevant files have been pushed to consoles/clients. Those files aren't left live all the time because they'd bog down consoles and PCs over time, or somesuch.

    Our unofficial server does not have the command running and we still have Party Dodo's spawning. Not checked the cooking pot though.

    Can we get a way to save paint regions on gear? I want to paint my Exo armor and it would be so much nicer to be either able to spawn in those colors or have them saved for when I respawn

    El mapa está muy bien, bug arriba del corazón, que no se puede bajar, en consolas todavía no hay abejas y algunos supervivientes han colocado pilares en todos los rios y lagos, siendo casi imposible pescar. Server PVE 1539.

    It's not a smart business move, you can get deathworm horns on Ragnarok, a free dlc. The issue is that server transfers aren't open, which prevents getting deathworm horns from any source.

    Dear Devs of Ark/Studio WildCard. Please Region lock the box [][][][][][] players. Let them have their own language server. Let them speak their own language and not messing with international communities. We are SICK and TIRED of seeing those box[][] dupers in all the servers! DO SOMETHING!!!!!

    Ark 2 news please 

    Not to be mean, but to hell with Ark II when half of not most (or all) console servers are bugged out with 2-20 minute connection time and 200+ constant ping for almost a week, and what do we hear from ANYONE from Wildcard, *holds up ear*, *crickets*!!!!!  Wildcard, you are pissing off the entire community with not even so much as a peep in regards to the server performance the last week.  PLAYERS ARE LEAVING!  Long time AND new players!  This keeps up much longer you might as well halt ALL developing of ARK 2 for the foreseeable future, because you won’t have a player base for it to be played on!!  Everyone in 1624 is chopping at the bit because of this mess!  And that’s not the only server that is in that state of mind right now!  At least give us a disrespectful lie of “we’re aware of the problem and are diligently working on it”, even if you don’t!  When the servers started going down where were you?  The servers are up 24/7/365, and by default maintenance teams should be available and ready AT ALL TIMES!

    You at Wildcard have received our money for the DLCs, but you don’t reciprocate delivery of a satisfactory product!  Enough is enough!!  Then to add insult to injury you throw out a Evo event when the server stability equates to a sand castle surviving a tidal wave!  People are loosing tames, resources, builds and whatever else and you are nowhere to be found FOR ALMOST A WEEK NOW!  I’m sure there are hundreds of server outage tickets and no response.  People on Twitter are calling out server issues, and still nothing.  Players are reporting server problems in the forums on here, and you still remain silent!  What freaking gives???  My suggestion after this mess gets fixed (and many many others share my thoughts on this topic), TEST YOUR FREAKING UPDATES BEFORE YOU DEPLOY THEM!  Us players are getting tired of the ready, fire, aim bs.  When this does get fixed, I think a very heart felt apology is needed at the very least.
