Wipe Official Servers

Suggestion

After almost 2 years of constant breeding, every larger group now has incredibly mutated dinos that are nowhere close to what the game was originally balanced around. This means that dinos like Rhinos or Therizinosaurs deal much more damage and are much harder to kill than they were 1.5 years ago when the game released. Politically, the game is currently very stale, with alliances constant, no big conflicts and many people leaving the main cluster for others clusters or other games for a fresher and more exciting experience. A wipe would easily reset breeding back to its original state and bring these dinos back down to what they were originally, and bring back many players that have left over the last year.

 

edit: im talking (mostly) about the Official PvP network, non-legacy, main cluster)

I'd support a wipe. It would make things interesting and fresh. 

What would make things even more interesting is if they changed official servers back into hardcore mode. If dinos don't get to respawn, players should not have that opportunity either. This would be DND Features at its finest.

Most people who scream for a wipe plays pvp. There are a few people who wants a wipe to pve but not as much as pvp since meshing or duping does not affect pve players as much as it does to pvp. I rather not have a wipe to pve.

Without any quantified statistics, I believe 99%+ PvE players do not want a wipe. However, I am always worrying that when PvP server wipes (or becomes the next legacy), PvE servers will become the collateral damage.

So, I do find it humorous that there is so much animosity towards the OP on wiping official - particularly concerning folks losing countless hours of time taming, building, breeding, advancing their characters, yet it's perfectly acceptable to wipe legacy servers?  The vast majority of those legacy players have been playing, building, breeding, etc., far longer than most of the official players - by a long shot.  Personally, I have been playing since early 2016, and have endured several biome changes which destroyed several of my bases, the introduction of the un-tuned Giga, which subsequently destroyed about 200 dinos that I had at the time, griefers on the server, etc... 

Regardless, I have put in at least as much time as any others of you official players (check my Steam profile), but it's ok to call for a wipe for legacy?  Put yourself in our shoes - there's a reason we stay on legacy.  Yes, the communities are generally more hospitable than official, but the primary reason is that we are well-established, and we no more want to start over than any of you saying that it would kill the game for you.  Your time is more valuable than anyone's on legacy?  We all paid for the game - we all expect to be able to play the game in the manner that it was designed.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander - call for a wipe on legacy (and I know this thread was not started with that intent towards legacy, but I just had to comment, given some of your replies about how it would be suicidal for WC to do such), and I say that I call for a wipe on all servers - across the board.  If memory serves, legacy was original separated due to duping, over-mutated dinos, and in general, cheaters.  Take a look at your official servers now, and tell me where the bulk of that has gone?

Go ahead and flame me - I know it's coming, but you and I both know the truth about time and effort invested on both sides of the fence, and where the true issue is now.  Log on any official server and look at a Giga, Boss Rex, Mana, Argent, etc... and compare it to a legacy variant of the same.

Wipe all official severs

Yes Ark you need to clean house!!!!   First thing I have played since the game was first came to xbox. I have since the trolls and mega tribes take over both pve and pvp it happens, however leaving things as is, is not going to help. Cleaning all the pillars and monster texas size bases with entire zoo's of cloned dino's that the tribe do nothing with except to have a different colored dino for everyhour of the day. They just sit there and take up cap space and render time on servers.  The game is about survival not who can have the biggest dino zoo.  Where is the survival when you have 10 or more gigas just sitting at your base just to drop eggs and look pretty. This is not Ark survival evoled anymore its now Dino rancher...  What color do u want with that dino........

I don't know if this can be a good idea or no... for veteran players, all their content erased and start all over, for some players, thousands hours spent into the game. I know this is very frustrating for all new players to find a place to build on a PVE server, or be clean by an alpha tribe on a PVP server. In some points, this game is like a rpg, spending lot of hours to evolve, find better stuff, find better dinos, better saddles, theory crafting, optimization... i would not like to start over again the same thing i already did in the past for like one thousand hour just because a unjustified general wipe. After a month this would be the same problem as before, people will build everywhere, with not a single place to build our base, and alpha tribe on pvp server will be there to clean everything again. The game is like that, a wipe will change nothing, maybe one solution is some readjustments on many points in the game

Official Wipe?

An official wipe is a must in order to reinvigorate the player base and the game itself while there are many things needing to be changed and possibly added I dont see Ark going to the next level without a clean wipe of everything and everyone. Megas have turned the official servers into PVE servers basically, we have to change and balance the power in the community.

Fresh wipe of official and small tribe servers.

It has been a very long time since we had a wipe on official servers. With the recent mek duping method both small tribes and official servers have been ruined by mek rushing. Most servers a ran by single tribes who make it impossible for others to build up. A wipe would bring a fresh start to the game like never before. I wipe would bring back old players and new ones as they’ll have a chance to play the game from the start. At the moment the game seems to be in a good state, in the summer a new map is releasing. This is the perfect time to wipe offices and small tribe servers and give all the players a fresh start. I spoken with many other players who agree it’s time for a fresh wipe.

Frankly, official PVE servers, especially P+ PVE on ps4 need to to be wiped if not shut down entirely. In regards to PS4 official primitive+ pve, there are only a few tribes/individuals who feel the run the server. I speak of tribes, House 336 and ArkAngels/desert isles, and a solo individual known as Krull. House 336 and arkangels treat the p+ official pve server like it's pvp, by kiting poison wyverns across the map well away from their spawn areas to grief other players, kiting hoards of wild rock golems to someone's gates, etc. And individuals like Krull who pillar EVERYWHERE across maps like ragnarok, with no apparent intention to build where pillard. Incidentally, this Krull only logs in hours before the first decay timers are set to expire just to reset, they don't play the game as intended. Or hardly ever. There are some of us who are passionate enough about the game that we invest in private servers and cluster with others to make a friendly environment for other gamers and keep pve, pve. Private servers are the future, when it comes to ark multiplayer gameplay. The true ark fandom lies in the private cluster. Official PVE servers need to have monthly extinction events and serve simply as a tutorial for new players, not serve as a permanent home to unfriendly, selfish and spiteful PVE noobs. That's not to say you should only be able to play it one time through, if you're fine with starting fresh each month, go for it. At least in private clusters, individuals who are unable to practice fair play can actually be banned.

Wipe the official crossarks

The pvp is dull, you’re either fighting someone who has nothing compared to you or vice versa. I think wiping the crossarks and opening less of them will see more players on those servers and it will be way more fun.

Another fix would be to cluster all the crossarks together and let them fight each other.

Arkpoc only lasts a month, and those other ones are only available on pc. I’m offering a suggestion for some servers that are mostly dead and ruled by one tribe.

They might as while just add a wipe cycle to all official PvP servers.

 

It's either got to be a hard no wipe policy or a specific wipe cycle, not some between.

 

As for crossark clusters, form a team and take back the cluster. It's a challenge.

Dude123, PVP in Ark is too much evil. Seriously those who enjoy wiping others' 1000s of hours of work, they really have problem in their mind. That's why I never joined in any PVP server. You can start playing PVE where sometimes it might be hard to get place but WildCard releasing multiple new maps every year and some maps becoming empty because of new map. Just got Genesis part 1 map and Crystal Isles is upcoming official map. So you always getting chance to start new with others. Why still expect wipe? Center, Scorched Earth & Aberration maps are much empty nowaday.
