I’ve put in a ticket everyday for almost 5 months. Call me persistent. 

If people aren't providing you with an answer, that's most likely because they don't have an answer.  This is a long thread with lots of people having issues,  don't get salty with the rest of th

I think the real problem is that Wildcard put out this great map without a clue as to how the size of the map would impact hosting servers, including their own official servers. 

I know our private hosting company just decided to restrict the map to 16GB servers only which cost twice as much. If that had been planned it might have been easier to swallow. But as it is, they let us load into Genesis 2, we played there for a number of days with no issues at all, then they began shutting down our server every time we try to load the map. They are essentially holding our Ark game and everything we've built up over the years hostage.

It's like renting a hotel room for the night then when you go to check out they inform you that the room rate doubled in the middle of the night. 

Ark developers and their hosting services dropped the ball big time. A lot of these issues aren't as technical as some people might think. It's about lack of foresight & $$$ wanted to provide the actual technical needs in terms of server performance. 

Wildcard made a nice map that no one can easily run, including themselves, and now private hosting companies are wanting twice as much to run the map. 

Case in point...

The game isn't crashing for us. It's being shut down on purpose every time we run it, because the map uses too much memory.

If it's a private unofficial server, then it may be that you have to talk to your server host. We experienced the same thing. Turns out our host company is purposely shutting down our server.

They call 16GB of RAM an "issue"... not gonna say what i think about that being an IT Pro.
What do they expect WC to do? Make the Map smaler? 😂

Funny how my Provider shows less then 10% Memory usage on a 15 Slot Server for less than 12 Bucks per Month.

Exactly, and if it were an issue... pretty sad they didn't stop to think about until days after launch.

Who's your provider? Maybe our group would consider using a better hosting service.
