It appears the ARK crew is offline......

I think about half of the servers are not working properly, and the other half will probably degrade to that point over time.
Any one know when will the ARK crew be back from their holiday and at least restart the servers?

Sorry, they are to busy working on new DLC content to be concerned about people being able to play on old content.   

There is no money in that apparently.

This is a ridiculous assumption(and if its a  joke, it is not original) 

Its the holiday season and even Wildcard members have a right to have time off.

I was being sarcastic, but some truth there as well.

Server stability has been an issue for years, if not since release.   This should be a priority for dev resources, not continuing to pump out new content.

The server stability is abysmal.   Fix the current issues FIRST.

I think the developers are worried that without new content, the old players will get bored and leave. Without the old players, ark will lose popularity and no new copies will be sold. They probably want to repair the bugs too, since a buggy game will increase refund requests from new players. But they may want to deal with the most deadly problem first.

It is like how people treat heart disease before skin rash if giving a chance to treat only one of them, even when skin rash is more irritating and easier to treat.

I blame Atlas personally. Ark back in the day could have full servers and ping wouldn't go above 100ms ever, now its hitting 200+ when servers are half full, and crashing left right and center. Maybe I'm imagining things, but I noticed servers were never the same after Atlas launched.

You're comparing two different games (ARK EA vs Current ARK) Current ark is a LOT more laggy (look at turret tracking, particle effects, TEK, etc)
