    Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!

    We're excited to announce that we're rerunning a popular community contest again, where players can submit their own dinosaur ideas to be added to ARK.

    We've seen some incredible fan-made designs and creature submissions in pasts contests so we can't wait to see what you come up with this time. Whether you're a seasoned player or new to the community, we encourage you to dust off those notebooks and let your creativity run wild. Feel free to create a dossier, design a creature, and tell us how you see it fitting into the current ARK meta.

    While we may not adopt all of the gameplay ideas, we will be looking at and considering everything submitted while using upvotes as a way to determine entries for a second round of voting. Use Wikipedia links and references to help with your pitch, show us what abilities this creature might have, and what it may look like.

    Check out the Creature Submission Guidelines for more information on the submission process and hop over to the Creature Submission Forum to see the current entries. The entry period will end at 1PM Pacific on January 23rd, so don't wait - get your ideas in.  We are looking forward to seeing your ideas come to life!

    Am I the only person not caring about Ark 2 news or U5 news? All I want is more dinos and a few maps to Ark 1 and I'll be more than happy. The dinos don't even need to be super unique, I just love taming and raising the little buggers. So the new creature(s) "contest" gets two big thumbs up from me!

    check this dracorex suggestion then

    I’d rather ARK 1 get a TLC for the main legacy Dinos than a whole new creature but I guess this is still a nice surprise…

    Hopefully it means there is still a chance they will get that TLC eventually because they need it.

    Didn't you wrote that there will be more bredable dinos and 2nd creature submission will be last?

    So you obviously can't keep your promises.

    Now you seem to ressurect dying game with new dinos and slightly new mechanics. 

    Why don't you give us bug/ideas submission ?

    does ark need new crocodiles as it is sarco and crocodile kapro in a whole game? there are 34 more crocodile species to be added and it will be a disappointment if you don't have one in this poll

    It's probably preferable for them to release Ark2 when it's actually done and avoid a Cyberpunk type release of an overhyped, over promised and under delivered technical mess. 

    As for Ark 1.5, well if they do it (big 'IF' given their record of unfulfilled promises) there are two ways they could go about it in my view. 

    1) Do a direct port to the engine with minor tweaks as a free patch. IMO that's a lot of work for not a huge pay off unless they bump up the price of the main game to the original sale price. Even then, I don't see it making alot of fresh sales unless it coincided with a successful release of the animated series.

    2) They could do it as a paid 'season pass' style where they re-release each map  slowly, but instead of a direct port, they also change the maps and creatures re-imagining and fixing/improving game design and mechanics making the game a far more fresh experience again, whilst keeping the overall sandbox design untouched. E.g. Changing the missions and their format for Gen1/2 or adding better hunt missions on other maps etc. Basically apply all the lessons they've learned from all the feedback after each release to elevate the game.

    Although I'd much prefer the second option, I think the first one is the most likely one

    You mean the EVO event? It ends on Monday 16th as per the OP. It is only an official server EVO, so if you play on officials you've already been playing the EVO event.

    No, the only events you need to activate are for private servers which are the special holiday events, not the EVO events.

    The EVO events are on official servers only and you don't need to do anything to start them.

    If you play on private server or single player you can change the EVO rates any time you want.

    Just gonna point it out to stir the pot a bit for my amusement. Anyone here remember when the carchara got added despite losing twice and a few souls pointing out adding it anyway would make people demand a loser be added anyway since ark already invalidated the votes once? Yeeeah we're starting to see signs of that now in the new submissions. Reap what ya sow wildcard. Prepare for pandemonium.

    I was just thinking what if since this is the last official year ark could we get all of the top ten winners from the ark creature vote with the first place winner being released first and the other 9 later in the year. i can just imagine the trailer with all the new creatures and mabey a new map. This is just an idea i had so WC it would be awsome if this is how we said goodbye to ark one.

    Honestly this is a great idea that i would love to see. Maybe they would also pick some of the dinos that did not make top ten to come in to this is actually a great concept that i think would be healthy for the game. This could also be an opportunity to add one final map in the game populated with a ton of new creatures.

    Sorry to say lad but I don't think we'll be getting another map unless Ark2 suffers some absolutely ludicrous delays. I'm not talking talking the usual wildcard delays either, I'm talking Cyberpunk 2077 levels of delay. Multiple creatures popping up is however a possibility seeing as they've done it twice now.

    Well with no new news a lot of people are speculating that we'll have to wait till 2024 for ark 2 and if that happens we might get a new map. I think having a bunch of new dinos would be great.

    I wouldn't doubt we get a new map before Ark 2.
