    It's unfortunate that in the 60 seconds it took me to create this image, you think the dev team has completely stopped all work. The team have been and still are working hard to fix all high-priority issues.

    Let me translate it for everybody: Fortunately, the current situation in the US serves as the perfect excuse to postpone this update. I cannot remember a single early access update delivered on time. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate all those delays during the last 5 years.

    Given the situation in the US, and the rest of the world right now, we will be rescheduling the ARK in-game celebration until Thursday, June 11. We understand that our community has much anticipated the ARK in-game party and the launch of Crystal Isles, and we're looking forward to sharing all we have prepared for you next week. We felt it would be inappropriate to celebrate milestones during the present time as there are bigger things afoot, and that outweighs any plans we otherwise had. We believe now is the time to be respectful and hear the voices of others. Studio Wildcard

    There should be a way to separate the balances made to dinosaurs and game mechanics between PvE and PvP. Multiple balances have made PvE nothing but hard. Managarmr being a recent example, in PvE they're useless now thanks to the many balances made to make PvP better. Flier nerf was a huge change in PvE making fliers and transportation harder by forcing us to land since PvP was taking to the skies too often and the game tried to "ground" the fight

    Allow an option when placing or once placed to toggle show range on troughs this way we can place Dino's around them or litter our base with them and not have any Dino's out of range. The mechanic exists with Dino leash or Tek generators, just needs implementing into the radial menu for troughs

    Maybe you guys could finally add the Vampire/Werewolf disease transformations you had planned for Fear Evolved in 2016. I had a source tell me that you almost had it done and working well but then scrapped it. Other than that, I loved the Dodo Rex/Wyvern Events you used to have, so more of that kind of thing would be fun!

    ARK: Community QOL Catalog ARK: Community QOL Catalog The ARK community catalog is a list of proposed changes from the community and the design team. It's an universal list that the design team will work off of when prioritizing work. This is not meant to indicate that the items listed will go into the game. What is a quality of life request? It's generally considered a minor tweak to something that will result in a major convenience. What's the point of this list? Being a gamer, I realize it's hard to realize what the development team have and haven't seen. This isn't meant to replace our traditional methods of raising concerns and requesting changes to the game. This is a visibility and awareness initiative. If something isn't on this list, it's very likely it's not on a radar. I believe there's some value in knowing that as a gamer. What about bugs and requesting new content? This list is meant to encompass quality of life requests. While that term may be subjective, this isn't a list that's meant to contain new game additions IE: Add 3 Man servers. It's also not meant to be a bug list IE: Fix Manticore landing. While we may benefit from a list that's dedicated to those things, that's not what this list is meant for. What should I expect to happen? What I'd like to do next is have a session with the design team and begin indicating things we aren't going to do. That will leave us with a list of things we'd actually work on. From there, I'd like to indicate when we begin working on an item off of this list Will you keep adding to this list? Yes. I'll only be adding new quality of life requests to this sheet though. There's no update frequency at this moment. What are the statuses? Complete: We've completed and deployed the line item Archived: It's an item that has been seen/discussed with the design and development team New: It has not been seen by the design and development team Queued: The development team likes the idea and will prioritize it to be included in the future. Not Considering: The design and development team has seen the line item but will not be adding it. Why Google Sheets? We have internal systems that we use for project management, and rather than adding another system for them to manage (Trello, etc), I'd rather keep it simple and straightforward for the moment. In addition, we have a forum that I'd prefer to utilize over Trello. If this is something that is sustainable, we'll look at different ways of integrating this into the forum. What do I do if my request isn't on here? If your request is a bug, a new addition to the game, or not generally considered to be a quality of life request, it won't make it on this list. If it is and it's not listed, it'll get added in time. Ok, enough.. Where is it? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1oMHjs3UiR2OwvUn0V6QQogL4uT0XRtxrua8Gs6mFa5M/edit#gid=0

    I stand in solidarity with black people. Ark players are primarily white and it's about time we experience some dissapointments, setbacks and letdowns so we can feel the pain experienced by African Americans. I support the event/new map being postponed until racial disparity is 100% solved in the US and abroad. Black Lives Matter

    What about all those people that work weekends and can never experience the Evo events, they finally get a once-in-a-liftetime special Evo event in the week to enjoy. You don't get a weekend event on one occasion and you claim it's unfair. Geez what an attitude.

    Completely disagree. I've only been in the bog so far except for a quick spawn and peek around the other biomes and I absolutely love it EXCEPT for the insect swarms, those are broken as hell. True, it is definitely not an "easy" zone but the aesthetic of the bog is beautiful. It might be the best looking swamp I've ever seen in a game. Briefly went down into the ocean and wow once again it is beautiful. So much more detailed than the ocean in any other map. Cant wait to explore it more. It's day 2, everything is brand new and therefore harder. Give the map some time before you just throw your hands up and declare it a fail. Jesus people are so quick to quit something when it's not easy as pie.

    I know you ARK Devs get a lot of backlash when you have to delay the launch of another DLC, but if that means that we get a less buggy release AND simultaneous launch on all systems, I believe that it is worth it. Did we foresee another delay coming after the silence about Genesis this month, yes. But this doesn't mean we should tear apart these devs all over social media. At the end of the day, they've made a great game that we can all play and enjoy. Moreover, nobody wants to see more delays in the future. Not the players, and not the devs either. But things pop up, something goes wrong, other events outside of Genesis get in the way. That happens to everybody. I just hope that we can expect more accurate release dates beforehand when going into the launch of DLCs. And when things are going awry, I hope we can get the delay notice sooner rather than later, because then at least we're not so close to the release date with so much hype just for it to be yanked back even further. A message to the Devs, thanks for making such a great game and putting so much work into it. I'm sorry that you guys constantly have to deal with backlash from this kind of stuff, but we all love this game and the community built up around it. May we all hope for a great Genesis launch in February and more success with this stuff in the future. Thank you!

    "Are you serious? You Say you are releasing it December then you go onto say that you delay THEN you dont say anything for a whole month and THEN DELAY IT ANOTHER MONTH. You said that It was delayed a month 2 MONTHS BEFORE THE ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE HOW IS THAT NOT ENOUGH TIME. I am Demanding a refund from this dlc. Absolutely Ridiculous."

    A Message from the Founders Hello Survivors, Jesse and Jeremy here! We know things have been a bit quiet on Genesis news for the past few weeks, even though there is much more to show you, we’ve been deeply immersed in the pre-release development process. That being said, we’re writing today to tell you that the final release date for Genesis Part 1 is now February 25th, 2020 simultaneously on all platforms. This additional delay will no doubt come as a disappointment to everyone who is eagerly awaiting Genesis. We’re extremely sorry to push it back an extra month, but as we have been heads-down with the rest of the team polishing, balancing and putting the final pieces together, we really felt that the extra wait will be worth it both for the quality of the base game and the ambitious new expansion. The live ops team is taking advantage of the scheduling change by making sure we have a really fun Valentine’s event in store for you (something we originally planned to skip because it followed so closely behind the launch of the new expansion). Plus, we’ve just deployed an initial anti-meshing patch, and next week we will be rolling out a definitive anti-meshing logic overhaul that should fundamentally address those long-standing issues. As we look forward to a successful cross-platform launch of Genesis, all of this will make ARK substantially better for everyone who plays PvP and PvE. On behalf of the broader Wildcard team, we thank you so much for your passion, creativity, feedback, and support. We are extremely thrilled to bring ARK’s next chapter to you, and are looking forward to a hugely exciting 2020! Meanwhile, here are some tasty new screenshots from ARK: Genesis Part 1! Jesse and Jeremy Studio Wildcard Anti-Meshing Efforts Hey everybody! I’m WC_jellyknee, the lead Live Ops Engineer on the ARK team. I wanted to tell you about our efforts to prevent cheating in ARK in general, and our continuing efforts to defeat undermeshing specifically. We're excited to get this post out in order to address the issue of meshing with the community and, also, to share news on how we will be countering meshing more aggressively moving forward via technical solutions. I'm going to start off by quoting from a previous developer diary: You can read the rest of the developer diary here: Undermeshing has been a thorn in the side of both players as well as the enforcement team, and a serious concern for the development team. To help mitigate this, we have further upgraded our anti-undermeshing system in order to help the enforcement team track down problematic map areas, as well as tracking down people who are breaking the ARK Code of Conduct. This underlying system has been in place for a while now, gathering useful data, and we have been testing it to make sure that it works reliably. We wanted to make sure that it minimizes the amount of false positives - we don't want it to flag locations where players can get to during normal play Now that this system has been proven to be effective, we've now built another layer on top of it to take advantage of this data. I don't want to give specific numbers here because it can only help bad actors try to find new exploits, but I'll explain how this system works: 1) If we detect a player undermeshing for a certain amount of time, it will teleport them to a valid position that they were previously at. It will then monitor that player for an amount of time. 2) If the system finds that player undermeshing again within that time, or if it's not able to teleport the player to a previous position, then the player's character will die. Any items being carried will remain at that location. 3) The system is aware of what the character is doing, and will take certain actions into account to help prevent player frustration. The system, whilst in a state we’re confident will have an impact on limiting meshing, is in a state of ongoing development. We will continually make improvements and updates, along with rolling out more definitive undermeshing-resolving changes in the next week. While we continue to introduce new content and experiences to fans of ARK we will remain focused on ensuring that everyone has a fair playing experience on the Official Network. By default, the anti meshing system will be on for the Official Network For Unofficials, these launch parameters can be used: -noundermeshchecking // Will turn it off the anti meshing system entirely -noundermeshkilling // Will turn it off the anti meshing player kills (but still allow teleporting) Twitter: twitter.com/survivetheark Facebook: facebook.com/survivetheark Reddit: reddit.com/r/playark Instagram: instagram.com/survivetheark Twitch: twitch.tv/survivetheark Steam: steamcommunity.com/app/346110 Youtube: youtube.com/survivetheark

    Rest in Peace SMO ALCON, Ark Devs, and Ark Social Media, I have reached out to Wild Card a few times over email and messenger, but my requests turned up nothing so far and no responses so I figured I would try the forums. My tribe mate of 3+ years and nearly 5,000 hours has passed away from Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was only 17 years old when he passed. We are on Island Server 46 Official PVE. We have been setup there since the server opened 3 years ago. One of his last requests was for a Laptop so he could play games like Ark while hospitalized. We setup a GoFundMe server wide and reached enough people to get him the funds to do so. Unfortunately, he passed away a couple weeks ago. Pictures of his character sleeping in a bunk bed in front of a transmitter were even used at his funeral as seen in the attached image. SMO was his character name and he loved Gigas. I have fridges full of his podded Gigas of all colors. He even named the base GigaCity. He was an amazing guy and some of you may even have interacted with him as he was a heavy trader on the forums. We on server 46 would like to host a Giga March in his memory where we will run around the entire server with his Gigas following us on ours. All that I ask from the people of Ark or Wild Card is assistance in locating a means to let this Giga March lead to something greater. Maybe a non-profit organization donation, Cancer foundation donation or children cancer hospital donation of some kind. We could have multiple servers run Giga Marches and twitch stream them. I am open to anything and anyway to try and make a difference for future cancer patients. They could be gamers just like the rest of us, but struck down so young by a terrible disease. Please any ideas, mediums or ways to let this turn into something greater would be greatly appreciated. We will miss you SMO.

    I am so disappointed by everyone. There are literally people being murdered. Abused. Sentenced to jail because we are trying to change our country for the betterment of a race. So what they're not prepared to handle an event and also the release of a new map. Yeah, i get it. they're not on time like always. But take a look around in the world. Please. Can you not put yourself into someone else's shoes and have a little bit of faith? I guarantee you a lot of people would be saying the complete opposite if these things were supposed to be released on time. "how dare they when innocent people are rioting and being beaten" This is an American based game. Ced is fighting the long fight. We are all ready for change. Get your heads out of your butts for just enough time to see that they're trying to be considerate. Everyone's lives matter right now. You guys should be angry, but this is not the time or place to be.

    The map itself is too restrictive compared to other maps. Not being able to ride a dino between the biomes like previous maps is a fail. Trying to use HLN-A can be a nightmare as it tends to just zip away most of the time you attempt to interact wih it. Not being able to use flying mounts on an open map is a fail unless it is a bug or locked behind progression. It just doesn't make sense other then function as a brake on the rate at which people can obtain resources. The only thing working on the tek suit is the helmet's vision modes and air, but nothing else? A big, fat, fail. Imposing restrictions rather then building the map to take already existing methods into account is always going to be a fail, regardless of game. This has already been proven plenty of times in the past, just google it, no need to repost it all here. You'd need a library for that much information, not a thread in a forum. I started a new character in the bog biome and by the time the initial white screen went away and i could see the enviorment my character was pretty much dead, at around 10% health from deadly gas and the infernal insect swarms that are literally everywhere you go. They need to be toned down. You kill one swarm and 3 will take its place in seconds. It also rains 99% of the time and the fog's so thick you can barely see a thing. A real bog doesn't have near-constant rain. All the effects are causing a lot of lag on a standard PS4 without a solid state drive. Of course i could install a solid state drive but if the game won't work smoothly on the hardware that the console came with then it just simply wasn't designed right and needs to be tweaked, end of story. While mounted the game pauses between 2 - 5 seconds every 50 or so feet traveled. Hopefully this will get optimized over time. So far i have checked out the bog, snow, and ocean biomes and the only place i would even think of building is on the back of a Megachelon and i doubt i'll find much of anything in the volcanic or lunar biomes where i would want to build. Base building is a big part of this game after all yet Genesis clearly wasn't designed with that in mind but instead made to fit only a portion of the playerbase of the game, mostly people who prefer to play PvP but i'm tired of constantly running into people who can't PvP without using glitches, and then calling you trash, in pretty much any game, not just ARK, so i don't play PvP anymore unless it's with friends who i know will play legit. For PvE this map is lacking, a lot. Sure, there are missions to do but i haven't tried any of them yet so can't comment on them. What i have read from other peoples comments on them i don't even know if i want to.

    NO more Pod timers on PVE!!! Thank you! Holy crap! No more Cryopod timers on PVE!! What a game changer. Seriously. Cut down on lag, less dinos out ready to be pregoed, less dinos out for boss fights. No more worrying about feeding boss teams. Faster to unpod than to leave them out and move them around in place. What a freaken concept. FINALLY! You know how much time this will save? How much lag it will actually save across all servers? Just wow, finally! Something promising in a change! Good lord, took long enough. THANK YOU!

    I get it but I lap the loot is supposed to be a prize not trash, the least I could’ve expected out of it is materials from grinding. Especially with the new grind all feature... the no grind loot is brand new and unnecessary it makes the grinder practically useless.

    My proposal would be to, instead of nerfing them into the ground, to simply add better ways to counter them. In my opinion, which would actually make a lot of sense considering they are "ice jumpers", would be to make them extremely weak against; . Currently, they take less damage from fire than an Alpha Rex (Mana lvl 1 takes 66 dmg per tick, while an Alpha Rex lvl 1 takes 100 dmg per tick from a primitive crossbow with Flame Arrows). This doesn't make much sense to be honest, does it? So yeah, my proposal would be: Scale incoming fire damage to at least 5x what it currently is. While the Manas are on fire and melting, they cannot use their breath attack, cannot jump, etc. but can only walk to safety. Woops. Just like that they are no longer the kings of the map. Players start carrying Flame Arrows/Flamethrower, they also start using their dusty Fire Wyverns again, etc. They could even be ignitable with torches; imagine a tribe of naked pyromaniacs on the beach, silently hidden in the bushes, rushing and keeping on the ground an unsuspected Mana until there is just a puddled saddle remaining. Only to say that constantly nerfing everything down is not the solution! It really just ruin all the fun. Control the meta by giving players better ways to compete instead!!

    I've done trading before, with some of the biggest traders in Ark. And there have been times when the trade was for a large amount of desired resources. Since there is a transfer limit of 50 stacks of anything at one time, and weight being an issue, sometimes using an alliance as a means of trade is the only reasonable course of action. In such cases I've been invited to an alliance to ease the burden of trading. Many people have and have been honest in their dealings. This is a fairly common practice in trading although going forward it probably won't be. You're right, it's not a bug. It's a horribly designed mechanic that can be exploited. And it's not ignorance about not knowing enough about the alliance system, it's being part of a community and how that community functions through a trade system that is also horribly designed. Instead of snarky comments perhaps show a little bit of freaking empathy for a person who just had thousands of hours wasted and potentially had an amazing game ruined for them. edit: Poppet, if they're still playing send my sympathies. Sucks it happened to them when they've always been fair and nice traders.
