Customer Service Ticket Submissions

We've updated the information needed for submitting Customer Service tickets so that is more concise and clear. We've updated the information for filing regular tickets as well as ban appeals.  Be sure to look over this information before filing your ticket.  Doing so makes the process smoother and most tickets a lot faster to process.  Check out the links below for more information.

XBOX Dedicated Server Valguero Issue

The team is looking into the issue preventing saving on dedicated servers running the Valguero map.  This is a top priority and we expect to have updates on this soon.

 

Invisible Wyvern/Broodmother

The issue of invisible Wyverns and Broodmother has a potential fix that the QA team is testing.  We'll share more information on this fix when its closer to deployment.


Exploits

The team is actively engaged with the community on current exploits and diagnosing ways to counter them.  This is an ongoing process and development resources are always dedicated to addressing exploits.


Meta/Beta Changes

Our recent beta is the first of more we'd like the community to participate in.  The next round of changes will be focused around the PvP cave meta.  Share your thoughts in the thread below!

I don't have a VR headset yet but with the rise of these new and affordable headsets around, it would be an AMAZING Game to immerse yourself in VR and feel like you really own Dino's, I know head tracking is available but a full version port would be a huge step in making VR the best thing ever. Imaging hatching a baby and seeing it there right in front of you, or running from a raptor hearing it's footprints chasing you down. I hope you've considered it.

Just think, it's midnight and you're chopping a tree for fire wood and you hear the sounds of a raptor approach. You are over weight so you drop some wood and dash out of there. Bob and weave, weave and bob. You look behind you and breathe a sigh of relief because you lost them  Turn back around and see the 10 pairs of glowing eyes of troodons. Sounds like a blast...

Snail Games made ArkPark, and since they own the IP, it’s down to them.

Some more info on Classic PvP Season 2 pls? It's been weeks now since announcement. Season 1 is already dead. All relevant tribes quit long ago due to the cheater fest you allowed to happen. We had streamers on our alliance, and we got aimbotted live on stream by these and no evidence was enough for a dev wipe. You have to up your rules for Classic.. Also applies to Small Tribes. Inviting a cheater for server defense should mean a full dev wipe for every tribe that invites that same cheater over and over again. We wiped CG and they were cheating over and over  while defending, and after wiping them, doing YOUR work, they continued to play on another cluster before transfer opening and had free game to cheat once again. Can you please fix this sh** before Season 2?

Congratulations to the winners!

It was nice to take part of the voting process and fun to watch the add videos. And although it may be unlikely, I will go ahead and cross by fingers that we get a part of some of the mods or one of the maps in the future for console game play. 🤞🤞

Can't wait to see what the next contest will bring. 😁

Ok so the First phase of the timer  states "This is Not Ark 2" The next phase that just came through states " Uplink AP Init " me and my bro have been looking around and there is one thing that keeps popping up the banner of extinction which is 42.9 38.6 : Yellow Text.
A priority Communication recieved: Arat Prime is locked down. Which means it could mean AP stands for Arat Prime and Init meaning Initiating and what backs this up the ending cutscene of Extinction where it says "I'm Coming For You!" which means it would be Arat Prime but this is just a speculation can't wait for the Rest will update this once we find out more thanks for reading.

Arat Prime is not someone, it's a place. Probably it's based on the Noah's Ark history, in which the Ark rested on mount Ararat, Arat Prime probably is a command center on Earth which could start the ark's returning to earth procedure. I would guess the one who said "I'm coming for you!" would be Rockwell, since it's coming from the aberrant ark.
That makes me think the new dlc is canonical and post-extinction, since the countdown is a portal system, and on the end of extinction the player ascends.

What exactly do you mean? Transfers of items and characters out of Valguero are already enabled on Xbox official servers. I was able to upload deino eggs and download them on my other server.

And can you also re-enable item and dino uploads for the Xbox beginner servers? We used to be able to upload tames before you disabled it because of duping, but it never got enabled again along with all the other servers. I want to upload my level 1 event rexes.
