  • The Official ARK Community Hub

    Greetings Survivors!

    large.566838360c1e7_ARKHeader.png.43381b

    We’re very excited to announce that we’re ready to start opening up the new ARK Community Hub. We’ve been working hard on the Hub in order to bring our awesome Community and Game platform agnostic home where we can better communicate, interact and meet your needs.

    www.survivetheark.com

    Due to the immense and continued growth of our community, our need for a central platform to discuss and interact with one another is highly important. We want to ensure that we maintain our promise of constantly iterating alongside your feedback, listening to your suggestions, hearing out your concerns, sharing your content, and working together as a team to create both a better game and a better community!

    Something to keep in mind is that the new forums are still in their early days. We’ve added a lot of functionality thus far, but as the game continues to grow and we have more time to spend on it, we plan to improve it a lot further and add a lot more. Here are some of the features you can expect to see with the new forum;

    Forums

    With the launch of the Community Hub, we’ll be having a much larger forum which will have platform specific and game-mode specific sections to make discussion a lot easier to keep up with and relevant. We found that with the current boards, often threads were being buried due to the limited sections available for posting, and that other sections weren’t getting as much attention because they weren’t shown as predominantly when on the site.

    With our new forum, you’ll be able to see all the sections and hide the ones which are irrelevant to you as you please. They are more structured so that it’s a lot easier to find something that you want to read about or talk about. 

    You’ll also be able to keep track of the latest discussions, shared content, and other neat tidbits such as knowing instantly when we start broadcasting live on our Twitch Channel!

    Something incredibly important to us was seeing the amazing content you guys create, seeing you share your experience and joy in game with one another as well as with us! This is why one of the first features that we created for our hub was the ability for survivors to create their own ARK picture and video galleries (soon™)!

    Platform Integration

    large.5668382a4e1b4_ProfileSteamIntegrat

    We understand that many of you will be playing ARK from all sorts of different places, some of you survivors will be on the PC, others on the Xbox, and some on the Playstation. Due to this we wanted to ensure that we could fully integrate as many of those platforms as possible into our hub.

    Initially we will be launching with Steam integration, so you’ll be able to find your friends and keep up with their steam changes via their new profiles! As we get further along in our development process, we’ll also be integrating as many other ARK platforms as possible.

    Support & Getting Involved

    large.Support.png.f0288d8247cf500d01ccbe

    We realize a major concern that has been identified with ARK was getting in touch with us. Due to this, in our new community hub we have incorporated a form system. This will give survivors the opportunity to contact us directly regarding support issues, reporting a player, and even application and eligibility for testing builds early! 

    It’s still a work in progress and there’s a lot more we aim to do with it, however the basic functionality exists now and it will definitely be a lot easier for us to keep track of issues and reports, as well as for you to get in touch with us.

    Something we have consistently made a high priority for ARK is the absolute destruction of cheaters. This is something that will never change, we are going to continuously iterate on our in-game defenses against them, as well as work on new things with other industry leaders to stop cheaters. We don’t like them, you don’t like them - we want it to stop. Taking this into account, you guys won’t have to worry about any hackers being present on our Community Hub as our VAC-linked system will track anyone with a VAC ban and then automatically and permanently ban them from accessing the hub. We will also be taking steps in game to further recruit more GMs to assist us with overseeing the game and keeping the peace.

    Profile Page

    large.5668382bb9616_ProfilePage.png.7b9a

    Who you are matters. On our new hub, each member won’t just be a name. Our profile pages will enable you to create an identity. You will have the ability to customize your profile, with images, signatures and earn achievements and badges. We want to know more about our community and the best way to do that is giving you as much opportunity to express yourself as possible. 

    With our profile pages you will also be able to register different platforms (currently limited to Steam), so you’ll be able to instantly find one another, as well as check out the other games that your friends are currently playing! -- Though don’t worry, if you’re the bashful type then you’ll be able to keep all that information private from other survivors! ;)

    You can also make use of the extended post information to keep track of your own, your friends, and developer topics and posts!

    Announcements

    large.Announcements.png.45dad89e5bbf0ce6

    Similarly to the Steam Forum, we will also have our own Announcements that will be visually featured on our main-site and Community Hub! You’ll be able to leave comments and stay up to date on all of ARKs latest news!

    Calendar

    large.Calendar.png.b826ff5c20db28efad23e

    Keep up to date with our upcoming events with our Calendar feature! This will show survivors, in incredible detail, when an event is taking place, as well as include other useful information such as relevant threads, images, and the option to let us know what you think about the event. You’re able to leave comments, reviews, follow, and this is something we encourage you to do as the more feedback we receive, the more we will know about bettering our events in order to ensure that our community is having a fantastic experience.

    Steam Forums

    Don’t worry Steam users! We aren’t abandoning you! We will still be active on the Steam boards to ensure that the latest patch-notes are up to date, as well as our latest news and information is always posted and available for you to check out. 

    We will be moving over our community-posts to the new hub though, including the ARK Digest and the Community Crunch!

    However we do encourage you to join our new Community Hub and make full use of it! As our developers and forum moderators will be actively discussing on the new boards, as well as using it as the primary place for reading your reports, concerns and suggestions - so please do join us!

    ARK Community Hub - www.SurviveTheArk.com

    Thank you guys!

    All the best and we’ll see you on the Hub ;)!

    Wildcard Jat & the ARK Survival Evolved Team!

    where are the tutorials? this game isnt really begging me to buy it in its current state...

    that take like an hour just to make a simple house, you want a 12h tutorial? this is a hard survival game where you start naked on a beach, now SURVIVE. there is no need of any tutorial! As far as dark souls don't need a tutorial, this game is perfect like that! this is not a game for casual gamer.

    So it will just update like the PC edition, sorry if I sound repetitive I just want to be sure cause in the store it said " please purchase only if you are comfortable with the current state of the game. I didnt know if it meant it was unfinished or if you were just stuck with the version of the game you bought it in.

    I understand it's basically in alpha for xbox users but it asks me for feedback so here's mine the servers are terrible you spend 12 hours establishing a base just to leave that server and have it next to impossible to get back on that server and when you refresh 1000 times to find it it says 70/70 it wouldn't be so bad if your could get more then 4 people in your non dedicated server and be able to travel more then 180m from the host 

    That's my 2 cents

    Spending 2 hours stuck in a rock crevice with the character falling is unacceptable. Why is there no unstuck of some fashion. I'm perfectly fine with dieing and losing all my stuff, I'm not ok with not being able to control my character in anyway yet having to listen to him panting non-stop while waiting the 2 hours for him to starve to death.
