It is Very sad, all these year's later and the company still has month  2 issue's . 608, 596 , 380 , 71 ,371 , 455, 46,  503... Really shows us what wildcard thinks of us by allowing our servers to go unmaintained or patched and fixed.  in the last month i have had
 Rubber banding 
constant disconnects 
Lag
griefing
dino's under the map
Lag in to borders and losing skiffs

I could sit here all day and list issues but why bother since i know they obviously do not seem to care. 
They release info and fix so late  most of us think why bother telling us now

They really need a person who is committed to communicating to the player base and is not just there for their snarky attitudes and witty remarks . While yes  that helps keep trolls and and griefers in check. Some one with a bit of elegance and being able to effectively tell some one that their comments and actions are of but an underqualified gamer and their skills could and maybe increased by using the tools of today by checking the internet for answers , While also being able to say : We are aware of the issues and working diligently to resolve these inconvenient issues. Actually doing it would be amazing...

 Giving event dates more than 1 week in advance would be nice 
When a server crashes or dc's are constant  a restart of the server by the next 24 hours would acceptable

I completely agree with the above posters. Lag, rubberbanding etc on most servers that I'm on is horrible. Granted some are worse than others. When I first started Ark in 2019, I didn't believe people initially when they said Ark was as old as it was. I couldn't understand how a game, with that much time to mature and new dlc yet to come out, could have such a horrible experience when it comes to server performance. I stuck through it hoping for better days. On some servers, it has improved drastically in the past couple months only to turn to crap again when the box tribes show up. My extinction server is almost unplayable for doing anything other than base maintenance. My Island server is very hit and miss lately. Runs mostly ok with less than 10 people on, but with a slot cap of 70 that is pretty sad.

I've been trying to get going on Genesis, but lag\rubberbanding is so bad there are times I have to try 3  or 4 times just to open my dinos inventory. This has prevented me from doing missions at all because it's not worth losing gear or dinos to these issues. I've lost enough of those already over the last 19 months to server issues.

Like others have said, they never seem to acknowledge your tickets or posts regarding the servers. I highly doubt their servers issues will be given the proper attention now that Ark 2 is a thing. But one can always hope. Either that or we don't buy Ark 2 because of their piss poor track record thus far.

At the moment server  EU-PVE-PS4Official-TheIsland46 is near unplayable due to repeated heavy lag (>10seconds) and continuesly being set back. Repeating the same action over 6 times in a row is no fun!
Only 4 till 6 active players, most complaining about this issue.

Is there anything we can do about this?

Not true..my main base is on 46 and yeah it has laggs some time..true...but mostly not that much like on other servers...mostly its quiet stable.

With a 3x event coupled with a 80% steam sale for Ark, logically what we get is 3x instability in regards to official servers.

Ours just went from the occasional one crash per day, to one crash+rollback every 2 hours.

How's yours?

Wildcard, if you're listening, if you're going to do Evo events like this, please consider at least beefing up the servers a little bit .. this is borderline unplayable. And I'm at the Island, can't even imagine how things are on Genesis and Extinction.

Fact is WC doesn't care.   They only care about milking more money from players. Not me, I'll never again waste my money supporting a POS company.

Ahh yes.. event time again, where the servers are offline more than they are online because cheaping out on hardware is the only thing Wildcard is actually good at. 

 

717, once again spending more time offline, kicking or lagging than actually being online during events, and WC doing sweet f__k all to mitigate it.

Thanks for nothing.
