    Greetings Survivors!

    Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! This week we have a reminder about Conquest Season 4 and the addition of 3 more maps this Sunday.

    Don't forget to slap on a hat, slop on some sunscreen, and wrap yourself in some sweet summer shades, because we have an ongoing Summer EVO Event live right now!

      I remember joining a friend's server for the first time, they had dragon mods and a cool map to look at so they invited me to check it out.  I spawned in and immediately got harassed by a pegomastix as I was trying to gather resources... I punched this pego in the face and it had tamed instantly! I stood there shocked at what had just happened while my friends were laughing so hard about it all... To this day we all laugh about it still! Funny thing is... Not long after.. I did it again! Who knew punching in the face would give you a friend or two

      so im level 50 right, so I was exploring around my base with my ptera and found a male 145 rex terrorizing the local herbivores around 300-500 meters away from my base, so i was worried that if it continues it would stumble its way to my base so I took 2 cross bows and 130 tranq arrows and set out to tame the mf before it shits on me and my base or at least lead it farther away

      well I was prepared to die, but uhhhh turns out the rex fell unconsious and Im taming it up rn

      now wth am I supposed to do with this thing, I cant even ride it till level 72 😭😭

      Looking through the comments I just want to back up what others have already relayed, Dollie and Ced have tweeted about the Fjordur spawn issues, the team is aware of the Fjordur spawns problem and have been working on a viable fix which we hope to be ready soon in a major version update.

      In the meantime we have been redeploying the official servers more often throughout the week than we normally would to help to alleviate the low spawns partially.

      And also to confirm that the Summer EVO Event will be extended, but we will announce a new end date for that once an update for the spawn issues is sorted.

      • Thanks 2

      Thank you for finaly some official response.

      It would have been very nice (and proffesional) if they had replied to this forum (wich once the Wildcard sited refered us to) a little bit sooner with a little bit more information instead of only using twitter farts.
      Twitter is not realy the platform to quickly look up information.

      Ced has been Tweeting about this issue over the last few days. They are fully aware of it. There's nothing us mods can do.

      Full of bots arguing about whatever they wanna brainwash us into this week - I avoid it like the plague.

      You'd think the folks who's job it is to communicate with the player base would use their own forum instead of an increasingly disliked, culturally divisive, commercial enterprise like twitter.... or at least spend the 2 minutes it would take to copy and paste whatever they said here.

      Meh.

      Twitter or farts... Wonder what's more persistent...

      But serious, Like @Luizza said. In a real busines a community manager would have gotten a few serious warnings for severe slacking by now.

      Unreadable due to all the "funny" baloons. For real, they need some education on the professional use of social media!

      If the idea was that we are supposed to read their messages, don't blur your posts with that crap please.

      Someone obviously don't understand the concept of quotes, shared screenshots, as well as personal accounts.

      my .02 on that tool. I used to use it all the time. Mostly to filter information from Twitter to this site. I don't anymore because 1 in 20 posts are Ark related and the rest is personal junk.

      I don't want to sit and filter through it anymore.
