  • 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!

    I have to say well done Wildcard on this new imitative, while I was disappointed with the new PVE focused DLC this partly makes up for it.

     

    For me the first year or so of ARK was the best ARK experience. The game back then felt more balanced and was generally more fun then it is today. Back then there wasn't all these giant unbalanced dinos that acted as instant win buttons. Most of the dinos were fairly small and they also didn't have the insane hitpoints they now do which meant players on foot had a reasonable chance of killing a tamed dino in a reasonable amount of time in combat. 

    I haven't seen the details for this new mode but I hope there is no Giga, Quetzal, Titan, Griffin, Wyvern, Snow Owl or any other monstrosity available to tame and I sincerely hope player movement speed has been hard capped. Extra bonuses that would benefit PVP would be the removal of the whip's ability to disarm and removal of player bolas.

    DEVOLVE MINHA BASE CARAI EU QUERO JOGAR ESSE MODO SEM PERDER MINHAS COISA BANDO DE FILHOS DA PUTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Pobre criança boca suja, esse modo de jogo reseta a cada nova sessão, caso não queira isso recomendo escolher outro modo de jogo, no seu caso mesmo te recomendaria ficar no modo OFFLINE pois devida sua grande educação é melhor não misturar com outras pessoas mesmo.

    How about fixing your pve it shouldn't take 20 spear thrust to kill a small low level dino. Your dev group is f'ing retarded.  Just stop working on this piece of poop game all your doing now is ripping people off. Kys

    You should thank Sony and Microsoft for being such closed platforms. Long certification process. Very very few games have mods on consoles.

    Wildcard - " We try to give console players the same experience as the pc players " or something like that.

    Yet the ps4/xbox players pay up to 10 x as much for the damn game and we don't get anything. I see steam keys go for 10$ and on PS4 we pay 40, 50, 60$? Even for a used copy. I'm not talking about mods, because thats almost impossible to do on consoles. We'd like to see the same servers that the pc players get, thats all. What a joke.

    Just look at the cosole prices for yourself... Yes. I started with the early access version so I didn't pay that much but I payed more then 27$ 😂 

    Being ripped off? Yes! Exactly. It would be okay if we were actually getting the content to match the price. Just some fresh wind... new servers... not more new broken content

    I have not played classic pvp yet but I will soon... I have played solo on official forever and the recommendations I have to keep Ark truly classic and more importantly enjoyable and balanced I would say remove OP BLUEPRINTS, OP saddles, OP armor and OP weapons should all be primitive. To keep a true balance the only thing that should matter in those items is durability not armor and damage as that makes tribes and tames OP eliminating the need for actual skill. Realistically weapons are only made of better quality enhancing durability not increased damage,  that is the type of bullet used, so maybe introduce different types of ammo and keep weapons primitive. 

    New dinos and items are great but OP BLUEPRINTS and OP crafting is what makes players and tames more invincible and dont allow for a fair or event decent fight putting the game further from the classic gameplay many had previously enjoyed.

    Breeding and imprinting seems to have gotten out of hand also, there should be a cap on stats just as there is a cap on levels.
