Last Week In ARK

In this week's update, we take a look at bans and average deaths per server (PvE and PvP) over the past seven days. 

There were a total of 732 bans this week between the enforcement team and BattleEye. The Enforcement team bans are done manually after investigation for various infractions of our Code of Conduct and BattlEye's bans are implemented for detection of third party software/cheats.

We are curious as to why our Xbox players have so many PvE deaths. Haha! 





EVO Event


There will be no EVO event this week.  The next upcoming EVO event will be on February 11th.

700 bans.. Seems like a big number.. until you point out that there is an average of 110,000+ new players joining every month, and at last count there was 11,000,000 registered accounts as of Nov 2020


Due to the mass amount of dupers and exploiters on our lightly populated server, I can't imagine only 00.00636 of the player base are causing all these problems.

Time to step up your game WC and get some active admins in those public servers.

This is all AWESOME! Live the RP players video and your caption.

Pretty sure x box has more PVE players. But also it could simply be that pve is what me players do? I die a lot and I play mostly pve. Your not status to take risks when you know most of the community in good servers will help you out. Also inner tribe goofing, blood stalker food, etc. Honestly pve is more fun for me because it is a friendly community rather then competitive.

I go to pvp to goof off, but there are things there that are enjoyable too. And friendly communities. Unless you got a free server where people just troll bob's. 😆


Thank you for val event. I know it might take you guys a few tries to get it working properly but ignore people negative comments. They aren't the ones having to do it😆 everyone thinks they're an expert now days.


Also thank you for not giving people Gen updates. PLEASE don't give any. Im learning to live rather then ignore people complain a little in part to Notdolly. She has taught me that rather then ignore or get frustrated I can be adjusted at the whiners and ungrateful hats that already thier toxic waste in the Ark community.

Thank you WC for being 😎.

Wasn't it 2 weeks last year?

Nope it was 1 week last year too

To all the complainers, This game is easier now then it ever was and WC have done an amazing job creating a wonderful game and if they did events all the time it would not be an 'event'. Stop complaining and be grateful for the bonuses.

2x is a permanent thing so really the rates will be 6x this event and as for reduced baby food consumption, the increased breeding rate will dramatically reduce the amount of food your baby will need to mature.

Thank you WC for all the wonderful work you have done for us and looking forward to another great event. :)

Never activated an event before for single player.   If I put in the event tag vday in the settings now, will it activate early?   Or will nothing actually start until the 11th?   

Was thinking of putting the tag in now, just so that when the 11th rolls around I wont forget about it.   Dont actually want to start the event earlier than its meant to.
