They mentioned that they will look at them again at a later time.
The end of October is actually a good guess as this is when new servers will be added, they might re-asses the servers at this time to see what they should close for the aberration release and open new ones.

The last round they deleted almost every server that had under 11 active players, my guess is if your server is above that then your safe, at least for awhile.

Your friend is trolling you about aberration closing/not releasing.

Edit - Pasted the wrong thing here,

Wanted to say that I think most legacy servers will be closed by end of year, or middle of next year on arks birthday, just by the looks now.

Basically, it's a numbers game for Legacy at this point. If we can get numbers up our servers will likely stay open... if we can't then we will have to quit or find new homes. We don't have a specific date for when they might look again, but if you want to keep your server you need to increase its traffic.

That's currently a huge issue for us, how to get new players to come play and old players to move in without creating a hostile Ark experience.

Everything your friend told you is untrue, rumour, or assumptions on his part.

There has been no announcement regarding any further legacy closures yet, let alone which specific servers. There has also be no mention of Aberration being cancelled due to money loss because it is completely untrue.

Don't listen to rumours, but at least you asked the question so now you know your friend is trolling/lieing to you.

Unfortunately this is incorrect. The Scorched sever I played on for example was consistently 20, 30+ players yet it was still killed off. Barely any Scorched server survived from what I remember when we were considering moving to a new one, before eventually deciding not to bother.

But yeah OP, your 'friend' is full of crap.

Anything's possible with the people of Wildcard but it seems more likely that the others who already responded are right. He was messing with you or he was ill-informed. It is only a matter of time until Jeremy Stieglitz makes good on his word to not wipe legacy, which in Wildcard speak means wiping legacy, but without an announcement there's no way to know for sure if they're wiping this month.

And before the replies roll in Stigetliz did promise that as long as he was at Wildcard there'd be no wipe but of course we all know that they are in fact wiping legacy. Just over time.

As TranqRex pointed out, it doesn't matter how many people are actually playing on the server. Every legacy server is on death row. Get your fun in while you can.

A lot of servers (at least that I have seen) are causing their own demise due to fear.  People are afraid their server will be cut next so they are going to a different server-thus dropping the server count on the original and almost ensuring that they will, in fact, be on the list of cuts.

The 11 number was a number they gave awhile back when talking about servers they closed. My guess is that they closed complete clusters (every server on a specific dedicated computer) if most servers were under the threshold on a specific box then all servers on that box were closed is what I'm thinking.
And yea, SE got the worst of that wipe, 75% (148 of 200 or so) SE servers were wiped on pc. Also by active I think they meant at all times of the day/week that the server doesn't drop under that many players.

Edit, My source for the 11 number: (check jens reply to this)

Legacy servers will be shut down,  if not October then defo January,  no point playing on them,  

But they will make arberation for legacy until it's gone,  maybe one or two servers for the whole of legacy.
