Community Crunch 232: PC Server Transfers, Beginner Servers, & More!


Recommended Posts

Greetings Survivors, 

Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch! This week we'll be taking a sneak peek at something small and cute, discuss the opening of transfers on PC Crystal Isles/new servers, and sharing awesome community fan art and content!

Check out last week's Community Crunch for more information on Genesis Part 2, Crystal Isles on console, and other events planned for this year!


Crystal Isle and New (*) PC Official Server Transfers

We will be enabling full server transfers into Crystal Isles and our freshly launched Official PC Servers on Tuesday, August 25th. This means from that date, players will be able to download items and creatures onto the map without restriction.


Beginner Server Wipe Schedule

Just a friendly reminder that we're close to the next reset date on Beginner servers, which will take place on September the 8th, 2020.

For those not familiar, Beginner Official Servers are an experience for new ARK players to test the waters without the threat of thoroughly developed tribes.

Unlike our regular servers, these have undergone some changes. First of all, there have been some limitations on how much a player or dino can progress. Player levels hit their cap at 44 and the highest encounter possible for wild creatures is level 30. Tamed creatures can receive up to an additional maximum of 30 levels. Due to the progression limits, some engrams are not achievable through leveling up but are found via supply crates. Some other changes include the disabling of alliances and tribe sizes have been limited to 5 members maximum.

Once established on a beginner server survivors can choose to exit into the rest of the official server network by uploading their character and moving to another server for the full ARK experience. Downloads of any kind are permanently disabled on Beginner servers so once you upload your character and leave the server you can't come back.

these servers are not intended to be a long-term place to become established and, because of this, they are regularly wiped so new players can get their fresh start.

Wipe Dates

Upcoming Wipe: Sept 8th, 2020
Wipe following: Dec 1st, 2020

If the mantis is always praying, what is their faith?

Varies a bit. They're all in sects after all. 

We'll see ourselves out... ?


EVO Event

As mentioned in the prior Community Crunch, the Official Network rates will be increasing to 2X following the next major version update.  Following the update, we'll have more information on EVO events.  Until then, we'll be using the EVO event system to apply the bonuses.

@StudioWildcard, please!  I love the game, bought it and all expansions multiple copies even.

  There's a Host Non-Dedicated Server option for hiding your server from others, but you aren't allowed to invite anyone in.  This makes it exactly the same as Single-Player mode.

  Please just look into it.  It's for setting up your server to be private of others, but allows you to invite friends.  (Xbox issue)

nice to know we will be getting wiped on the 25th! dino stats on the official network have been bred too high, anyone on crystal who isn't already established on a main server will not survive the onslaught of pretty much dedi stat dinos, it's a sad but true fact
wildcard should consider a wipe, dinos popping with 1500 melee is just a little high for new tribes to stand a chance huh

O!M!G! That mantis is sooooo cute! Please, please, please be a teaser for mantis becoming breedable ? 

 

And even more please - more breedable creatures (at least ini options if you don't want it on officials - I want to breed everything in my single player game!) ❤️ ?

 

Also... gotta say I love the mantis pun ❤️ ?

They arent wiping the regular official servers. Just the begginer servers which are always wiped every month. Its so new players cant build up and not have to worry about getting wiped by people who have been playing this game for years when all they have is a stone base

Please make imprint to Account and no longer to char.

I second this. This will save so much time and can also help if a players looses his/her characters. Will help in the amount of work a GM has to do to restore a players character. Wild Card, please consider this.

 

Other then that great work and YES breedable insects!

maybe its just better to add an option to duplicate the character on transfer and zero the experience and hexagon of duplicated character
