    Day Zero: Server Information

    Hey, Survivors! As we enter the final hours before launch, we just wanted to get some vital information out to you! :Jerbhi:

    large.1920x1080.png.47703ab523f3d8269adf

    Day One Patch!

    The Day One patch will be set live across all platforms at approximately 8-9AM EST and should show up on all consoles within the hour. This update will include Ragnarok for console, as well as the End Boss content accessed through the Tek Cave for all platforms. 

    The update size for console will be approximately 26gb for Xbox. We do not have a number for PS4 yet, but PS4 patches are usually smaller in size due to the different method patches are submitted.

    New ARK Servers!

    The Official Server Network for PC will be going offline at 2 AM EST, and The Official Server Network for Consoles will be offline at Midnight EST. There will be at least an 8-hour blackout across all platforms where no Officials are online. After this blackout period, we will launch the new Official Servers, as well as the remaining Legacy servers. Over the course of the 24-hours following this, more servers will come online.

    For ARKs launch, we plan on providing new Official Servers for the following games mode: Regular/Vanilla, Non-TEK, Primitive+, Hardcore, Isolated Clusters, NoTaming, Extinction Servers and ORP. With the bulk of the servers being focused on the vanilla game mode (Both PVP and PVE), and smaller amounts of niche servers which could be increased based on player demand. The primitive game mode will be removed in favour of the Non-TEK Tier Servers.

    PC Asian/China Servers!

    The current Isolated PC PvP Asian Servers we have on our Official Network is hosted and provided by Snail Games. They have decided that with the launch, they will be taking down their legacy PvP Servers and relaunching them as part of the new Official Network. These servers will be included in our CrossARK Cluster, and therefore will be transferable to and from as opposed to being an isolated region. 

    ARK Legacy Save Files!

    Later this week, we will have both our PS4 and PC Legacy Save Files available to use. PS4 is expected to be here sometime tomorrow and will be accessible via hosting with Nitrado. Due to sensitive information contained in the save files, it is required to be accessed and hosted through a licensed third-party. Xbox saves will become available when rentable servers are available in September.

    It's going to be an exciting 24 hours! We hope you enjoy all the new content; we're super stoked to be launching Ragnarok on console and best of luck in the claim for land on the new servers!

    I've been on holiday and not been able to move my stuff the last 2 years I've spent on game for nothing 

    So they should've just put everything, including the release on hold because you were on holiday?

     

    Two years spent on a game in development for nothing?

     

    Nice logic there.

    You already removed half of the primitive servers as is. now most of us have been waiting patiently for our new servers and you announce last minute there will be none? not even one server per region? and no we dont want primitive + i used to play that before it was an official mod. i made my mind up about it. no we dont want normal ark or any thing else. why include primitive in this server wipe crap if your not even giving us new servers.

    Fingers crossed the incremental release doesn't cause server issues because everyone will be bunching up in the same servers...!

    Before you start attacking people, maybe you should realize that information was edited into the first post AFTER people had all posted asking.  Seriously, SMH

    Dammit, I was hoping to update my game at midnight so i could play Rag .. I don't see why the patch/update/download can't go up at midnight, to at least allow singleplayers to play the game and new map.  I mean even if it updates at midnight, the servers are down anyways.  So it'd be for singleplayer

    The primitive game mode will be removed in favour of the Non-TEK Tier Servers.

    So you're replacing  the game mode but not the severs rights?

    What's in non tek tier mode?

    Good luck with the launch.  WIldcard clearly has a great game, but they are not reliable.  I think it's a safe bet that it will be a good 48 hours before all the servers are up, and following that there will be insane lag and the servers will be glitchy.  As of today (after most recent patch) the Obelisks were glitched, and there ended up being a rollback. And this, the day before launch...a launch that was supposed to happen 3 weeks ago.   They clearly do not test anything properly...they just rely on a community that they have lied to, and double crossed on numerous occasions, to test for them.  Yeah.  They are going to need lots of luck.  But mostly...we the players are going to need alot of patience...or maybe it's just time to call it quits all together.  There are tons of games out there.  Just sayin'.

    Absolute joke. You shut down near all the prim servers, the moment you called "server segregation" and "server deletion" near on all our server which was top 500 on battle metrics had decided to move to new servers when they came. Almost everyone on prim decided on moving to the new servers because of how much it had been broken with exploits and bugs that plagued us.

    Now you're putting in place of it a version of the game that caters to the lazy. The only reason you wouldn't want lazors in your game mode but you want rocketz is because you're too lazy to work towards getting element or the tekgrams in the first place. We prim guys were working towards ascension purely for the level increase and had already done 2 and only had the dragon to go. We play prim for the challenge. 

    If you say "play prim+" how about you go play prim+ and tell me how great it runs and how essentially broken it is. Also how broken it ends up with almost every official update.

    How about you scrap prim+ and tell the mod dev he can become a sponsored mod when he pulls his finger out.

    Regardless of "EA" or not I'm pretty certain that when I paid for a DLC that you have now removed any access for under the mode I purchased the game for is grounds for refund.

    Also if this is the way it will be, I hope you enjoy the all the prim guys going into your fresh servers and zerging every single player on your new maps until they rage quit this game, because there's no reason to tame dinos on non-prim like there is on prim. 

    Flame arrows, crossbows and a griffin and you can kill any tame outside a base. There are also some tames it still damaged when they clipped outside the base too. Back when they were a thing on prim (before your rate increases) I was able to farm thousands of flame arrows in a matter of an hour or 2...
