Hello to anyone reading this. For the last 6 months my tribe who hasn’t played ark in over a year have been anxiously awaiting the release of extinction. We gathered together all old friends in ark from the old days and created the largest tribe we’ve ever created before, with one intention, to experience the final map of the game we’ve come to love so much and has given a group of people who met by such strange chance and circumstances so many great memories that will stay with us for our entire lives now. Our tribe came together in the beginning for one reason, to overthrow evil alphas and create an environment on whatever server we were playing on that allows new players to learn the game and advance which many in our tribe never got to do because of said, “evil alphas.” We were incredibly successful and ended up being the protector alpha of our server on legacy for over a year. The legacy duping bugs on official destroyed the game for us toward the end and put a sour taste in our mouths toward ark for a long time to come. We were so excited for this map to come out. A week ago we started on Extinction with just 10 people, within 2 days our tribe grew to the size of 38 people. We progressed rapidly and became the target of 2 massive mega alliances attempting to assert control of the server. We essentially declared that we would be making the server an open/ non mega alliance server for everyone. Obviously we went to war. We were completely dominating as we had superior coordination, skill and a veteran relationship with each other that not many mega alliances can say their members charge with each other... Everything was going perfect, we had 16 tek turrets and 15 heavy turrets by the end of day 4. Then at 6AM on the morning of day 5 we saw a desert titan marker pop up on our maps. Some of our members(myself included) started to panic... We managed to calm ourselves down because this is not the first time we’ve had to kill a titan being used against us and we knew we could do it... we immediately got to work crafting anything to do damage to it when it got to our base. We crafted over two thousand rounds of fabricated sniper ammo as this is one of the listed weaknesses of the desert titan. When the titan got to our base we had no idea all of this preparation was completely and utterly useless... the titan sat well outside of our turret range and sent lightning straight through the roof of our metal/tek base and insta killed every single person still inside the base(a massive killfeed of offline players. Those of us  who survived continued trying to damage it(about 11 of us managed to get online). The enemy only had 4 people on. We managed to cryo pod the majority of our tames and get them in our cryo fridge before the titan got there, but all of our pteras, snow owls, argies and any other tame we didn’t have cryo pods for was electrocuted and killed THROUGH THE WALLS OF THE BASE....We put up a long fight, they had nothing to actually tank our turrets(the desert titan took insane damage when attempting to tank the heavies and tek turrets. So the enemy just sat at our base for 2 hours spamming lightning and making it impossible for us to spawn in base. (I have many game clips spawning into base and being instantly killed by lightning). Eventually they left and went down to the forest to tame the forest titan. It was here that we made our final stand with anything we had left. By now we had read up on everything titan related and we knew what would happen if they tamed it... An 8 hour dog fight ensued over control of the underworld and an attempt to claim the forest titan.. the titan went down and the managed to claim it first. We knew as soon as they got it that it was over. We all flew back to our base in the city and started filling any high weight fliers with our hard earned loot, we cryod our most important Dino’s and transferred everything to a friends island server that were not even members of. We then watched the titans reign down he’ll on our base while we watched with absolutely no way to defend. Both of these titans sat out of turret range and completely obliterated our base... we had no possible way to defend, our tek mek which we spent hours grinding for was ripped to shreds instantly... after Our base was destroyed they then went and wiped any tribe who was not part of the “UWS/99 problem alliance”(apparently the present day biggest alliance in ark pvp) and we just watched the chat fill up with all of our new friends complaints that the titans were doing the same to their bases... Now we’re all left here thinking how great the map we just played on was and want to experience it so much more, but every server we’ve tried to join now has a titan spawned and claimed.. Something needs to be done about this. I don’t normally complain about anything but this was the most game breaking thing I’ve experienced in official pvp since the duping wars which ruined the game for us the first time... I really hope wildcard opens up new Xbox one extinction servers, I’m sitting here now, left feeling hopeless sad and despaired that our gathering of friends won’t ever happen again. It was so great and rejuvenating to have gathered together again after so long... I never thought I would say it but i am truly deeply saddened by this. I just hope if new servers come out we can manage to get everyone together again. Many of our players don’t want to deal with ark bugs anymore so it was already hard enough to get everyone back together... I hope this is fixed and I hope by some miracle that wildcard will read this and do something about it.. This game has been extremely influential in all of our lives and we want to enjoy it in it’s full finished balanced state... thank you to anyone who took the time to read this...

This has now been patched as of community crunch 158.... it still doesn’t bring back a week of grinding, tribemembers who have quit, time lost, and no chance of catching up with existing tribes who exploited this bug... You botched the release of your biggest and final map wildcard and your official servers will most likely never recover. Our tribe has split up, some have gone to dedicated, some to other tribes... a few of us have found a new server to play on, but this will be the last map I ever play on ark and I’m only doing it to play with my old tribe mates. I will be requesting a full refund for the game and don’t plan on playing ark ever again after this go around...
