  • Introducing Classic PvP Season 2!

    Recently we launched a new initiative, Classic PvP, which aimed to bring back the original days of PvP.  These early days were full of fun and engaging battles with limited technology and an emphasis on the primitive aspects of PvP.  Recent feedback from the community suggests that Classic PvP is a good start to reimagining early PvP but there's still more you'd like to see. When we originally launched Classic PvP, we launched it with a seasonal-based concept in mind. The idea of implementing a seasonal-based approach in an ARK game-mode was as enticing to us as it was to the community.

    On Friday 10:00 AM PDT, we'll be taking steps to get closer to the initial concept that inspired the game mode by implementing a few changes that have been requested by the community.  In addition to these changes, Friday we will be wiping Classic PvP and preparing for Season 2.

    SEASON 2 CHANGES
     Cryopods are now craftable in obelisk terminals

    While we've heard feedback that you don't want TEK items like the TEK replicator, you do want items like cryopods for quality of life improvements.

    Cave building is disabled 

    This change is one of the core requests from the community and a shift in the meta that we agreed on implementing for Classic PvP.  We are excited to see how this change impacts Season 2 and we will adjust as necessary for future seasons.

    We’re anxious to get Season 2 underway but it's important to introduce changes slowly to monitor how they impact the current meta and gameplay. We’ll be looking forward to your suggestions and feedback for future seasons!

    Would have stopped wasting time on these servers as soon as I knew had I known

    Then you must have had your head buried in the sand because everyone else knew season 2 was coming.

    WHAT THE HECK?!?!?! ONE DAYS NOTICE AND WIPE ALL OUR SERVERS? IS THIS SERIOUS??????????????

    None of us has any clue you planned on wiping these servers. You literally ruined RUINED months of work. Can't play on PvE cause servers are capped. Cant play actual official cause trolls all over and broken game mechanics. THE ONE GOOD PLATFORM WE ALL ADD YOU TAKE AWAY?!?!?!?!?!?!?! PLEASE DONT DO THIS

    I don't understand why you need to wipe? Are you going to make this some seasonal wipe thing?

     

    One of the things I always used to brag about Wildcard was how you were so careful to not wipe servers in the beginning like when you made all the markers to outline where the snow biome was going and gave everyone a couple of weeks to move out before you wiped just the snow biome area. Now you just wipe for no good reason at all?

     

    What happened to you guys? 

    This exactly this great game ruined by moron devs who think we love starting over..................

     

    Thing is most people who play classic want that PVE feel without  all the trolling and server capped PVE servers. The LAST thing we want is seasonal wipes on THESE SERVERS. WTH are you thinking!!!!

    When Wildcard launched the Classic, they reported that it would be seasonal and there would be wipe every season. Didn't you read this before playing Classic?


    IT NEVER SAID THAT PERIOD.

    Nothing classic about cryo's ...

    Its a huge tactical game changer, if is just for raising bby's could have introduced a nesting option

    Going to be interesting to see if anyone gets far with cavebuilding changes. Early ARK before transfers were different because you had to maintain peace on the server and make alliances with other built up tribes, but in a faster paced PvP engaging mode .... Open world base only will be interesting to see. Definitely will have to watch some video content on it when its out ( While adding more spam and turrets to my 6 small tribes cave xD )

    Cryopods are a really bad idea. It defeats the purpose of having a classic mode. There is nothing classic about knocking someone out and taking their tames sealed away in cryopods. Let's keep the class in classic pvp and just kill their tames since we can't take them. 😄

    wtff????  Why would anyone waste time playing if they knew that everything would be wiped?  Only lifeless people read this forum. There were no warning messages on the server.

    I might as well start a proper "classic PvP" cluster at that point... I'd do the following :

    - 1x rates as back in 2015.
    - No kibble.

    - Remove all industrial grade engrams.
    - No scuba gear.
    - No Tek.
    - Only dinos prior to EA patch 173.0
    - Disable breeding.
    - Most likely lower dino levels.
    - With some work in the dev kit, I believe I could prolly do the Island pre-biome.

    The fact that Classic PvP servers were seasonal was in the original announcement. It's on you for not reading.

    O fato de os servidores Classic PvP serem sazonais estava no anúncio original. É com você por não ler.

    NO WARNING ON THE ARK CLIENT

    The people claiming that the only ones who knew about the server wipe were people who constantly read these forums are ridiculously ignorant. First of all I have known that Classic was destined to be wiped since it's beginning when it was announced as being SEASONAL. Secondly, I randomly check this site once or twice a week when I'm on the toilet pooping and that seems to be enough for me to stay more informed than most of the Classic game mode players. But the devs should have a timeframe for the seasons laid out ahead of time, that seems obvious really...

    It does. Paragraph under the bulleted list.

     

    "As we introduce this new seasonal Classic PvP mode, we'll be looking for your valuable input throughout the duration. As these servers exist to shake up the PvP playstyle, it's possible that they may undergo change and seasonal wipes as the mode matures and we take in more feedback."
