ps4 Manitoba-based Valguero Server

Recommended Posts

Our Manitoba-based PS4 Ark Valguero Server is up and running! (Connection details at bottom)

We have an extra PS4 that only has Ark installed on it that is used as a dedicated server.

We have the server set to PvP, which is mainly just for friends to be able to mess with each other. This is not intended to be a hardcore PvP server and bullying will not be tolerated. Anyone abusing offline raid protection will be removed from the server or put back into the stone thatch age.


We run admin-created events decently often. Mega mazes, hidden loot boxes, dinosaur swap-and-shops, arena combat, and more. If you have ideas, let us know. The 10 floor mega maze has been the most popular event so far.

In the next few weeks we will also be adding spawns for non-Valguero dinosaurs such as Griffins.



Update: Griffins and Snow Owls have been seeded into the Overworld.

Basilisks, Rock Drakes, and Reaper Kings & Queens have been seeded into the Underworld.

A trade system has also been implemented for Rock Drakes, as they are still not creating nests and eggs. If you would like a Rock Drake, here is the process:

- Collect the required items (1 Wyvern of any flavour, 1 Deinonychus, and a full set of Hazard Gear) and then make a post here stating you have them.

- An Admin will contact you and meet you in-game.

- The Admin will destroy the Dinosaurs, spawn a tamed Rock Drake, and transfer ownership to you.

Note: The level of the Rock Drake will be the average level of the 2 dinos. (ex. Level 50 Wyvern and Level 100 Deinonychus gives a level 75 Rock Drake)

The cost may seem steep, but the Wyvern area is nowhere near as dangerous as Aberration to steal eggs from, so adding the Deinonychus shows you are able to steal and raise eggs from the Overworld. The Hazard Gear will not be destroyed, but building it shows that you have performed the steps that would have been otherwise required.



Note: Any dinosaurs or items lost due to game bugs will be replaced by an admin. Just take a video with the Share button and let someone know here or in-game. It hasn't happened yet, but game bugs shouldn't ruin the fun.


The complete list of server settings are below. If something is not listed, assume it is set to default. Nothing is too crazy. It still takes work, but nowhere near as much as on a live server.

Hey man, you still have some openings on this server? My buddy and I have been looking for a PVP server that is not totally hardcore. 

We absolutely do. Right now there are around 10 people total playing on the server and I haven't seen any intentional PvP so far. There have been a few accidental kills from gathering pets and base defenses automatically firing, but its a pretty laid back server.

Hey man, I'm having a hard time finding your server in the lists. I'm in the player dedicated ark list and I can't find MBValguero.

Apologies. We were having some visibility issues with the server. Some people could see it, some couldn't.

It was restarted this afternoon and everyone seems to be able to see it now.

hey, my friends and I started playing the server regularly recently but haven't been able to find it this past week or so. would it be possible to be psn friends with the server? in order to join without seeing it in the server list. 

Feel free to send a friend request to TJServer. However, the only time it is accessed is to perform updates or restarts. We will attempt to accept all friend requests every time it is accessed.
