    Actually tried on 2 different ISPs and 2 different routers with the same result. Lot of other players also disconnect. So far we figured out that ammonites, basilos and anglerfish and coel overspawn. we had about 2500 ammonites in the ocean. nearly 800 anglers, 200 basilos. coels where about 5k. 

    Oh wow. So your issue is fixed now? And it was server side, not personal?

    Same problem here. For about 2-3 weeks I disconnect from the ocean biom almost as soon as I enter the water. 

    This solution kind of sucks to have to do and i'm not sure it would work for you, but it worked for me and i'm very happy. Today I switched to a new ISP and got a new router along with it, and now it is working perfectly, I am assuming that it was the router, not the ISP though. Like I said, it sucks to have to do, but maybe you could try getting a router if you really want to play ark that much? I think it was 100% worth it though because I was needing to switch anyways and upgrade :)

    Have you had problems with your network before?

    Having the excact same problem.  

    I play on official Genesis. It's not your PC faults, it's bad programming and crappy servers. 

    Does it happen sometimes on abberation and extinction, but no where near as bad as the ocean?

  5. Disconnection

    I get lost connection from host constantly. I'm pretty sure its not actually a internet problem because those tend to look different, plus, it only happens in specific locations. Mainly ocean and arctic, and rarely volcano. I can't swim in the ocean for more than 30 seconds without disconnecting. I have tried validating files, it says 7 files are missing and says it re downloads them, but when i validate again, another 7 files are missing. I installed graphics drivers and reinstalled the game. This has been happening since gen came out. I'm getting super tired of this and just wondering if anyone has a fix. Though it says i have 2 tb, I have ark downloaded on a 480 gb ssd. There is 100 gbs left the in the ssd.

    I tested it on official servers, but wasn't able to test it to the full extent as a bob.

    I am having the same exact issue. In the ocean, Arctic too! Ark is literally unplayable, right now!

    It’s really really nice to know this is an issue not only I have. I was thinking this would just be a problem that I would be stuck with forever 

  7. Lost Connection

    I’m pretty sure this is a genesis issue but I could be wrong. Whenever I’m in the water or arctic, I lose connection from server. I’m pretty sure this isn’t an actual connection error because I know what those look like, and it wouldn’t make sense that it only happens in those areas. I have an rtx 2060ko, ryzen 5 2600, and 16gb of 3200 mhz ddr4. I haven’t played too much on other maps, but I have spent a few hours on them on this new computer, and no disconnection. I have tried drivers, launch options, changing settings and some other things, but nothing works and it’s getting very tiring.
