46 is either being attacked by players from a certain country to make it all their own or the server resides on hardware that is failing.

 

I'm preparing to move off the server ,  if WC can’t figure it out ,  who will.... no one that’s who.

 

ive had to resort to reporting the outage every time now cus if I don’t the server will be down for hours,,  like last night I was going to bed when I saw it down for an hr ,  I would have reported but I was sleepy and thought I’d get to it in the morning.   I sort of figured it would be out until the morning....

we have a lot of boxtribes playing on 644 but i dont think they dupe,

because it is the same poop like rag map was at official release

literally the same like rag, and this was legacy, so long time ago

 

i am not even sure if all ppl have this problem bc there are so few reports

but when i looked into 644 2 hours ago the server just crashed and ppl complained in ingame chat about the ongoing bs

255 ping, rubberband, and dcs, bases not loading in and so on

@complexminded

@jatheish

my guess is just the servers are on the limit again, maybe 3800% over the limit, bc i think the servers are almost the same dual core rigs since early access.

and again we would pay for good servers or am i wrong here, at least i would.

public servers like we play on in ark should be the best performing servers in ark even better than unofficial, bc you show your product on this servers but i understand it costs a lot to host this network, we should jump to 2020 tho.

 

i dont have the same cell contract for more years because there are better offers 5 years later

 

i rly ask myself why no server upgrade happened over the past years.

 

exchanging 2010 hardware with 2010 hardware 5Head

No, its not a pain.. its litteraly unplayable! 
When I attack with my dino it takes like 1-2 secs for it to finaly attack, mobs are lagging around my dino impossible to hit and so on..

For this reason I stay in my base, doing breeding.. oh speaking of that.. imprint is always like 2-3 hours of the timer I set on my phone..
but not even in base it is "fun".. I lag more often than the 15 min autosave back to the place I ve been like 5 secs before.. I walk to a gate, open it, walk thru, close it, keep on walking suddenly I m outside again running against the wall.. it toke me 3 attemps to walk finaly thru this gate....

Can't see anyone DDOSing a PvE server, there is no purpose to it, because no one can play while it's down and there is no PvP to speak of unless it's the consensual kind. If that server is down most likely it's a power outage (we have been getting more thunderstorms of late this time of year), but it could also be HD failure (no server farm uses SSD except maybe for the OS, and likely not then either due to the expense), or simply the usual failure of a server after it's been running for too long. They do need to be brought down and systems updated like any other PC, and this can cause the underlying software for ARK to fail to restart and require manual intervention.

If official servers don't seem to be getting much love, maybe WC/Snail Games aren't getting the money they expected from sales of the current DLC, so that would mean they need to cut costs. If they lay off programmers that starts a spiral you can't recover from since less and less people would mean longer downtime or coding solutions eventually leading to a systems logjam of work and burnout. Until they can get machines to accurately code, people simply can't be pushed that hard so they break down more often when someone attempts to treat them like a machine. Turning off a machine permanently though is money directly in your pocket that is no longer being spent supporting a server.

And WC will never be fully honest about the state of the game, their main goal is to make money so honesty would be counterproductive to that goal. They'll spin the facts as hard as they have to, or remain silent. But honestly, those official servers won't remain active forever, there is no money in that for them. At some point they will stop coding this game, the money will dry up and they'll pull the plug on all official servers. So really if you want to play this game long term you should be looking for an unofficial server, either one you own or rent, or one you can rely on or share expenses with friends.

Because u are not the only one playing on that server and rolling it back can affect others. What if their chars get deleted because they were transferring? It not hard to see why they would risk losing players' chars for some babies.

@Probitas mostly agree, but where does info about less programmers coming from? Last I've heard they were hiring more.

Putting up adverts for programmers does not mean they are hiring, some places just like to keep resumes on file in case they need to hire, or they want to keep the current crop on edge worrying about job security - it's a sick demented game some employers play to control the workforce - if you are worried about your job, you are less likely to ask for more money, promotion, time off, etc. Human psychology 101. Most employers these days have no respect for employees feeling they are a dime a dozen, and zero loyalty, though they do expect that from employees no matter how shyte the treatment. Keeping want ads up just fuels that fire.

alot of people have been having issues with the servers crashing left and right, 4 people asked me if i could see their server from my friends list,  all 4 were down, noted that the 3 extinction server I play on sometimes for gettting gacha, who's pings are normally low were also down, as well as a abberation server and my main server.    My main servers crashed multiple times daily for the past several days.

We ARE moving off of 46 because it's been months and months of so much lost time, dead dinos, sitting around doing nothing. I hate it. Such good people there. Freaken WC! Please start fixing your stuff! Please!

That is very true. Good point. I think they just need to get their Management team together and read what people are saying. I mean people are bashing these crashes and horrible servers left and right. Don't they see this? I mean I know I would if I was a Dev of what should be a successful fun game!

Val525 is crashing up to 5 times per day too. For luck it's always up again after 30 mins.

Let's face it: In times of Corona Wildcard will have more and more problems to keep all 1000 official servers up. If no miracle happens we have to expect one server after the other go offline (ill workers, sceleton crew, financial trouble, lockdown, whatever) and not come back.

Maybe you have luck and your server will die as one of the last, maybe you are unlucky and will lose all your stuff next week, because your server will no longer be administrated.

I hope I'm wrong but this could be last days of our bases on official. Enjoy as long as you can.
