  3. Weigh In: Public Beta.. What's Next? There are a lot of things the community would like to see us address but a popular topic and one that we are currently interested in is the PvP cave meta. The next set of changes we would like to propose will be aimed at the goal of affecting the meta so that the ideal solution isn't primarily in caves. We have ideas but we'd like to get yours before we propose some changes for a beta. Let's keep this on-topic and related to the PvP cave meta (and changes that will affect that). The time will come for open-ended suggestions for the beta. Thanks in advance!
  4. We work with external partners to bring ARK to PS4. So it's making sure all teams are ready and on the same page/ready to launch.
  5. Feedback on July Beta Please keep your discussion related to the changes in the patch below: - Longneck rifle damage adjusted to have armor penetration - Fab sniper damage adjusted to have light armor penetration - Set Ice Titan freeze to last approximately 12 seconds - Plant Y should trap a player or tamed dino for 10 seconds max - Adjusted Shadow Steak Saute to no longer increase a players sensitivity to light (all other affects remain the same) - Set Forest Kaiju vine grab to not grab Mek riders - Prevented Forest Kaiju vine grab from going through Tek Forcefields (it will still grab through mek shields though)
  6. Valguero Transfer Timeline Similar to other map expansions transfers are disabled until these dates: PC Transfers In Enabled October 1st Transfers Out Enabled July 8th Console (XBOX/PS4) Transfers In Enabled October 29th Transfers Out Enabled Aug 5th

  10. Update Concerning XBOX Servers PVP Ragnarok 535-538 Unfortunately, we have some news to share with survivors on XBOX servers Ragnarok 535, 536, 537, and 538. Recently, the machine housing these servers experienced a critical hardware failure. This means that the most recent save data on this machine was lost. Our most recent backups will allow us to restore these servers to Tuesday, 6/11. Any progress that was made after that date has unfortunately been lost. We apologize for this inconvenience. We are looking into ways to do more frequent backups for the future. NA-PVP-XboxOfficial-Ragnarok535 NA-PVP-XboxOfficial-Ragnarok536 NA-PVP-XboxOfficial-TheIsland537 NA-PVP-XboxOfficial-TheIsland538
  11. For those that don't think we need additional modes - that fair criticism and feedback. But lets try and keep this thread to the modes/servers you do want.
  12. Weigh In: Legacy, New Servers, and New Modes We've been receiving feedback that the community is looking for new adventures. This may come in the form of new servers with the original experience or new servers with a twist. You've been heard! Let's discuss some relative numbers. Consider the amount we have servers now as 100% of the servers available for discussion. In order for new servers to be established, we'll have to take from that 100% (what exists today). Currently, we look for low population servers or legacy servers when we want to open new types of servers - as we did recently. Legacy servers won't be getting support (mesh detection, enforcement, maps, etc). There will be mixed feelings on this but do not expect legacy to be around forever. With that in mind, what types of new modes/servers would you like to see? Legacy players, what makes you stay on legacy? The community you've built up?
  13. Interesting to see the opinions on this. On Twitter people would like me to believe everyone wants a wipe.
  14. 2 things needing fixed on this post. I'm gonna lose my job!
  15. Dates are fixed Thanks for pointing out my error.
  16. Deinonychus Common Name: Deinonychus Species: Deinonychus magna pede Time: Cretaceous Diet: Carnivore Temperament: Aggressive Wild By the time you hear the scurrying claws of the Deinonychus, it's often too late. Superior hunters, they leap from a hiding place and pounce on their prey. The Deinonychus is an agile climber as well, jumping from wall ledge to wall ledge as it seeks high vantage points to lie in wait. A hungry Deinonychus tends to be fearless and will hunt prey much larger than itself, latching onto a dinosaur's back with its sickle-shaped claws, then starting to feed before its victim is even dead. While it likes its meat fresh, a Deinonychus isn't above scavenging a carcass if no other food is available. Domesticated Raising a Deinonychus in captivity requires an ample food supply, as they have a fast metabolism to match their high activity level. The Deinonychus is also fiercely territorial near nests with eggs, even if the eggs aren't its own. This makes breeding successive generations a hazardous process. Unless raised from eggs, they cannot be tamed; the hunter instinct of a wild Deinonychus is so strong that it reflexively pounces on a would-be master. When will this creature make its first appearance on the ARK? Find out more soon!

  18. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Mysterious Mysteries: Introducing ??????? What an intriguing discovery survivors, can you guess what this creature is? Jen Has Ascended! Jen has been with the ARK team since the beginning days of Early Access and has been critical in the overall development and success of ARK. At the end of the week, Jen will be ascending into a new opportunity - closing one chapter and beginning the next. We will always consider Jen a part of the Wildcard family and are appreciative of everything she’s done for the studio and our products over the years. Join us in wishing her luck wherever her future takes her. The Mother of Parasaur’s will truly be missed! Mod Community Updates and Developer Podcast In case you missed our separate announcement post last week, submissions for our latest mod contest opened this Friday, May 31st. Check out the current entries and don't miss out on your opportunity to win an ARK Collectors Edition by voting on your favorite entries. In other modding news, sponsorship applications close on Wednesday night 6-5. Since the mod contest is underway, we thought it might be a good idea to check on some of the modders who have transitioned into roles on the ARK development team. Since launch, we've hired over 30 members from the community for various roles. Hosting is Cedric, accompanied by Dave, Jackson, Zane, and Josh. Listen to their experiences in the mod community and the different perspectives of becoming official mods and working for a game development company. If this podcast format is something you'd like to see with other topics in the future, let us know! Note: The goal was originally to post a video format but we had video issues while filming and decided to use the audio and do a podcast format instead. The Great Migration! Once again it is time to remove some of our lower population legacy ARK servers on PC, Xbox, and PS4 from our Official legacy network. Over time the ARK population has migrated from legacy to non-legacy and in its wake left many servers with low populations. Here is a quick breakdown on how this process works: Taking Down Low Pop Servers With calculations based on sustained player-count as well as popularity of game mode we will be removing lower population legacy servers, most of which retain a 0-4 player concurrent population. These servers will be taken offline on June 11th. Any existing server that is not considered a low pop server and is not taken down at this time will still exist on the Legacy network. Legacy servers will continue to remain on a separate cluster from the new cluster, which means you will not be able to transfer anything between Legacy servers and the new servers. Servers Up for Deletion Below is a complete list of the LEGACY servers that will be deleted come June 11th. You have from now until then to move your belongings onto a server not present on this list. Please click one of the links below. They are separated by platform (PC, Xbox, and PS4). How To Move Servers If you are unfamiliar with the process, you are able to upload your items, creatures, and player through the Obelisk terminal, supply drops, as well as the Tek Transmitter. Survivors are advised to use Cross-ARK immediately to relocate their belongings onto a server that is not included in our take-down list above. Server Saves of Deleted Servers We will make the save files available as soon as we can. We will host the PC files which anyone can download and then you are welcome to re-host the save file for your own use. We'll include a link to where you can download server saves in this post when they are available. Nitrado will also be able to provide the saves for use on Nitrado servers for console, as they have done in the past. Evolution Event! Survivors on all platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 7th of June at 1 PM EST until Monday the 10th of June at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers across each platform will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes: 2x Harvesting Rates 2x Taming Rates 2x EXP Rates That's it for this post!

  20. Keep going! ARK could make a great movie. I remember filming "movies" with my friends when I was growing up. Some of my best memories.
  21. We aim for 10AM PST for scheduled deployments.
  22. Update Concerning PC Servers: EU-PVE-Official-TheIsland78 Unfortunately, we have some news to share with survivors on EU-PVE-Official-TheIsland78. The machine housing these servers experienced a critical hardware failure. This means that the most recent save data on this machine was lost. We do however have server backups from earlier in the week and have restored these servers to Tuesday, May 7, 2019. Any progress that was made after that date has unfortunately been lost.
