  1. And maybe it will fix the lag.....
  2. Confirmed, game starts and plays fine with network adapters disabled. Doesn't get me into my servers though.
  3. +1 on this issue Was able to play earlier today (around 11am US Central) and now can't (started about 1:30pm US central).Is now just before 3pm US central. a .json is just a data file, similar to an .xml file. In and of itself, an Invalid token would indicate that something wrote an unexpected character to the file, and now it can't be parsed. Weird that people are saying a VPN or disabling networking can fix the issue. Hoping wildcard gets this fixed, I do not want to have to reinstall all 250 bajillion megs of this game, again, for the umpeenth time.
  4. This problem is not getting answered. This is a situation where there should be monitoring to tell that the server is down, and a script to automatically restart the server. It's not difficult, real companies do this everyday. Don't know what your beef is, but if you're not part of the solution, you're just getting in the way of getting problems solved. You're just interfering with someone else's attempt to get the proper attention when the standard channels are not working. Don't be that person.
  5. Server outage reports have been filled out. Doesn't appear to get us anywhere either. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  6. One of the servers I play on has been down for a few hours. It's really annoying because I had just bred a good batch of babbies and had been hand feeding them for about 20 mins. I ran an nmap scan againsy one of the server ports, and it's reporting back that half life is running on that port. Is something goofy going on with the data center?
  7. Why isn't there a login queue? Seems like every other instanced online game has a login queue for overcrowded servers, why is this one "try until you get lucky" with no way of ascertaining how long it will take to get in?
  8. So, I looked up Nitrado employees on linked in, there's only 5, and two of them are CEOs. Certainly explains why server stability is an issue. Might be time to start messaging their CEO and tell them to get their act together.
  9. Some people looking to buy the game will check out reviews and the forums to get information about it. Keeping this thread on the front page, despite efforts to sink it, will help people who have not emotionally invested in the game find something better, or may even encourage whoever from Wildcard or Nitrado cares about their product to find out what's going on. At a minimum, this should serve as a warning to anyone looking for private hosting not to use Nitrado's services (You can find the hosting provider by using a geolocator on the server IP), and will hopefully encourage Wildcard to solv
  10. While we appreciate your efforts at moderation, I think the frustration many people are expressing here comes down to a few things: 1 - The increasing frequency of the crashes 2 -The lack of communication about the underlying issues 3 - The inability to keep \ maintain game progress after crashes 4 - The fact that apparently the forum moderators don't even get a briefing about the issues and can't post summaries Whatever the technical problem is, it's resolvable. If there's a DDOS issue because people are duping (as suggested by a previous poster), start banning IP ran
  11. Read the other posts. The game is burning, and Wild card has no intention of fixing he issues endemic to the game. Lag of 15-20 seconds and server down time of several hours are the norm to be expected. You were probably affected by rollback or lag. It's how the game works, no fix in sight.
  12. This is normal game play in ark at the moment. You will spend more time trying to figure out if the server is lagging or if your server is actually up than playing the game. Notice all the other threads about server crashes and bad performance on the first page.
  13. Need to keep bumping this topic. Will also help to give this game negative ratings on steam, as it does not seem Wildcard has any interest in taking their supplier chain seriously. It's a shame because this a beautiful game that should be fun, but if the servers don't stay up you're not getting what you paid for. Server instability is becoming a horrible issue. Game is unplayable, too many crashes and roll backs. Wildcard needs to publicly acknowledge and address the issue. I do IT for a living, and people would lose their jobs in any other data center with this kind of instability. Wildc
