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.   

Exactly. Just seems like they are trying to run people away from their game.

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.

 

Question: I want to know. Will the Oceanic region get Isolated Cluster and Non-TEK or is this exclusively an NA/EU thing like it has been currently?

Can the developers indicate what sensitive information is in the server files that is being protected?  The only thing I can think of is steam IDs.  Perhaps the main map file can be made available to those that want to save buildings/tames.  I'm not sure why steam IDs are sensitive since the informaiton is basically public record.  The Steam 64 numbers are also public record.  Can we get elaboration on this issue?

I'm fairly certain that most people were expecting the files to be made directly available and not through having to pay a third party host.  I would like to hear the compelling justification.

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.

No, but logic would say that 2 years worth of building would need more than a 5 day heads up to move it all.. 

Pretty sure he never said to delay it just for him.

Will PS4 ARK RAGNAROK map be released for console

 

 

Please Read.

 

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.

ok just asked, Prim is not gone Ced still doing Prim+ and there will also be non tek servers so there will still be Prim+ servers and non tek tier? i fail to see a problem?

Clearly never played prim before. Prim+ and Prim are extremely different.

Prim is Vanilla with no guns (closest to a gun is the harpoon launcher, not sure why that's in there though...)

Crossbow is the best projectile weapon you can get

Swords pikes picks and hatchets etc

 

Smithy forge and Xplants

 

We don't have scuba guns cannon metal tier anything required in the fab etc.

 

Prim+ is a MOD and a buggy one at that which iirc does have guns and cannons and some other building tiers. It has more content I would agree with that, but it doesn't offer anything of a harder difficulty, and each update that WC does for the vanilla servers breaks the prim+ ones, which then takes weeks sometimes months to get fixed.

 

If they do PVE prim+ or non-tek I will loose my poop, no need for these niche servers to have PVE based ones, it's a waste of resources. If the player doesn't want to use a gun then they can choose to not use a gun...

I think your company is repulsive for wasting 2 years of some of your dedicated players lives the fact that u will no longer respond to their cries for help because your moving past them is sickening I personally will never spend a cent to help fund wildcard in any way I hope ur sales plummet and u go bankrupt

Nice logic there.

 

 

There's a nuance between 'putting things on hold for you' and not being supportive - to put it mildly - to people that've been supporting and helping the game the out EA for ages. A Nuance between enticing people to start from scratch and twisting peoples arms with bs like 'no tickets' etc.. coincidentally the arm with the hand that initially fed ya. 

Reminder, they said they would give 30 days notice and out of the blue (since they never broke promises before) they didn't. 
Reminder, they said they would axe 'some' mostly unplayed servers and that's not 'a giant list with no list of places to go' 
etc etc ..

Just because you don't care or care little about your dinos and base doesn't mean you should project that on people that worked long and hard on things like color/stat mutations (or how about both those on giga's, not me personally but I know people like that).. imagine having that and a short (damn feeding ugh) vacation only to find the 5 day notice. 

That it's not your position when you don't care about your stuff doesn't mean you can't take it into account before airing sentiment of 'who cares, it's EA'

 btw..  did you ever try moving even a fraction of a base to another server, pff i've spend days moving my med base and everything useful in it once and that was still within the same server just 3/4 across the island. Not just saying they could have made that easier with at least a list of servers that will stay a longer time in advance but even if they released that list days earlier you'd have to find a plot first somewhere (good luck there already.. ), the further from obis the longer the move will take etc. heck some servers may have space deep inland but a mess of bases to navigate around first at obi, I'm glad I could move some things from the SE I'm on that will be axed to the island i'm on that won't get axed (today at least,but nobody can guarantee that won't change).

@Racidon not sure how you want me to respond, Ced does both Prim and Prim+ it will continue aswell as the non tek teir servers, why not wait a few hours and see?

Well since legacy is getting no support from here on out, you mean Ced does "Prim+" and that's it. 

 

I won't be waiting for anything, if they want to take a big + on our faces I'll chase down as many new players as I can on all the non-prim servers and wipe them, whether they are thatch or metal. This will be the next H1Z1
