COVID-19 and Wildcard\ARK

I merely mentioned a color event to keep people distracted in-game and everyone starts yelling about rate events 😐

It's just because people value rates over coloured dinos. Basically people want to play unofficial rates but on official servers. 😄

that's great news, people seem to be piling onto ARK as official servers are crashing and super laggy at times for no apparent reason. 504 went down for some time and only had 11/70 people logged on. Hopefully they don't go too crazy with rates.

i got an idea for current world events, i know the corona-virus is not this type of virus, but what about adding some sort of zombie Apocalypse event to the game. heck in the crystals isle announcement thread they showed the zombie mod, maybe that was foreshadowing. dont go yelling at me as i am just suggesting and honestly trying to have a joke. but it may be fun to kill zombie players with tames. either that or host special servers where something like swamp fever is abundant and if you catch it you die slowly over time, there is not sure and its very contagious. again just suggesting.

A moderator , suggesting shut down  his own game 😂😂😂

Explains so much ... the way this forum / game is handled...👌

Joel has always focused more on being funny rather than providing something relevant. I really don’t see why wildcard hasn’t booted his ass a long time ago.

Cos he doesn't work for wildcard, he is just a volunteer moderator for this forum.

True, but it is their forum in some kind of way. That said; if I had a mangy dog I couldn’t bring out to the public, then I would definitely find a way to shut it up. But I’m not associated to this forum in any way so I honestly don’t care what he is. 

I actually stay away from the forums as much as possible because of all the back padding and irrelevant comments like yours. It was just nice to see someone pointing out how ridiculous the behavior of some mods are and I wanted to comment on that. Have a nice day sir/mrs.

In light of the COVID-19, will there be anything in ARK to help people with social distancing? Perhaps a special color event or something to help encourage social distancing during this stressful situation?

Be nice to have a 2 week of 3x bleeding

Ah yes of course cause you know the virus will be gone by then so all good ey.

No, because April 1st is the shortest mandated quarantine time period (eg: the shortest time before any public buildings near me will open up again).

I breed lots of stuff,  please do not do any breed events over 1.5x....   the servers just can’t take it and I’m trying to clear out my island base.  If rates go up that server will just crash every 30min.

You could just.... not breed? Maybe put your dinos into cryopods?

I have ,  the issue isn’t me breeding,  it’s that if they turn on increased rates,  island46 will crash every 30min and take an average of 20min to restart.

At least op didn't ask for a new type of event like some other posts I've seen and some people in this thread. Just because people have extra time they think everybody else does, but guess what - creating ARK is the devs' job. If anything, they - like you - will have less time at work because of this, not more!
