  3. Beginner Servers ARK with all its complexities and depth is arguably not the easiest game to jump into. When beginner servers were introduced last year in May, we saw them as a way of introducing new players to the game while still providing some of the challenges they might run into playing on a more heavily populated server. This also provided the ability to transfer to a more popular server at your freedom. Since early game in ARK is the most challenging, we saw this as a low-stress way of getting up to speed. We didn't intend for these servers to be a long-term place to become established. Because of this, we'll be implementing scheduled wipes and announcing the future dates in advance. Be sure to spread the word to any new survivors you run across! Wipe Dates Oct 1st, 2019 Dec 31st, 2019 Mar 24th, 2020 Jun 16th, 2020 Sept 8th, 2020 Dec 1st, 2020 ExtraLife Stream For the past several years we've taken part in what is becoming a tradition - the ExtraLife stream. It's usually full of random challenges, events, and laughter but the main reason we're gathered there is to raise money for an incredible cause. As we get closer to the ExtraLife stream, we'll post a schedule of events and details on what to expect. Most of all, expect a good time for a good cause! Check out the link below to see who's streaming on our team and join forces if you want to help us reach our most ambitious goal yet! What is ExtraLife? Last Years Stats 11th Ranked Team Globally Over 1,800 donations as a team 70 Team Members Largest Donation was $2500 89% Individual Donation increase from 2017 23% Overall Team Donation increase from 2017 ExtraLife Information: ExtraLife SurviveTheArk Team On The Horizon PS4 Transfers Enabling PS4 transfers is the top priority at the moment and we have dedicated resources working on disabling exploits that caused transfers to be turned off. We understand this is a considerable inconvenience and we hope to have more information soon. Public Beta Update There were recent updates to the public beta based on feedback we received. Haven't checked it out yet? See below for information: Quality of Life Catalog @Cedric has been working on a comprehensive catalog of quality of life requests. Many of the requests have come from the community but some requests you see have been proposed by the design team. While places exists to catalog this information (Suggestions forum, Twitter, Reddit, etc), this is mainly for visibility purposes to let the community know what has been seen, requested, and being worked on. If this becomes something you'd like to see more, we'll look at different ways of formalizing it. Expect to see the catalog later this week.

  5. Recently we launched a new initiative, Classic PvP, which aimed to bring back the original days of PvP. These early days were full of fun and engaging battles with limited technology and an emphasis on the primitive aspects of PvP. Recent feedback from the community suggests that Classic PvP is a good start to reimagining early PvP but there's still more you'd like to see. When we originally launched Classic PvP, we launched it with a seasonal-based concept in mind. The idea of implementing a seasonal-based approach in an ARK game-mode was as enticing to us as it was to the community. On Friday 10:00 AM PDT, we'll be taking steps to get closer to the initial concept that inspired the game mode by implementing a few changes that have been requested by the community. In addition to these changes, Friday we will be wiping Classic PvP and preparing for Season 2. SEASON 2 CHANGES Cryopods are now craftable in obelisk terminals While we've heard feedback that you don't want TEK items like the TEK replicator, you do want items like cryopods for quality of life improvements. Cave building is disabled This change is one of the core requests from the community and a shift in the meta that we agreed on implementing for Classic PvP. We are excited to see how this change impacts Season 2 and we will adjust as necessary for future seasons. We’re anxious to get Season 2 underway but it's important to introduce changes slowly to monitor how they impact the current meta and gameplay. We’ll be looking forward to your suggestions and feedback for future seasons!

  14. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Genesis Season Pass Last week we introduced a new chapter in the ARK saga: Genesis. By purchasing the season pass, you obtain a brand new H.L.N.A companion. Are you enjoying H.L.N.A.'s company on your adventures? Genesis will be a brand new experience for old and new players alike. Check out our live stream if you're looking for more details on what to expect! ARK Developer Live-stream ARK: Genesis Press Articles In addition to the live-stream, there have been several articles about Genesis in the press. Here's a few: PC Gamer: Everything we know about Ark: Genesis Games Radar: Ark: Survival Evolved Genesis expansion adding new dinos and a talking robot starting this December Public Beta It's that time again! With our last public beta changes live on the Official network, we've decided to propose another batch of changes for your testing. When this beta patch goes live, we'll post a thread to collect your feedback. The feedback you provide is valuable, as last time it resulted in us increasing armor penetration with the fabricated sniper and longneck above their original beta values. We'll be making some changes to caves that will impact areas where you are ONLY able to crouch. We'll be sure to share visual details noting the changes before they go live. - Mek shield debuff set to not be given on shield deactivation - Outside of Mek shield debuff reduced to 30 seconds (from 60) - Snow Owl freeze buff set to not dismount riders - Players and Dino’s are immune to the snow owl freeze for 10 seconds after being frozen - Snow Owl Encapsulate/freeze wind up changed from 1.3 seconds to 2.6 - Reduced Tek Tapejara Saddle projectile damage by 30% - Reduced Tek Tapejara Saddle projectile damage to structures by 75% - Dropped Plant Species Z Fruit weight to 10 On The Horizon Dedicated Valguero Saves & Single Player Valguero Saves The engineering team is working diligently to solve these critical issues with Valguero servers. We've been making progress and hope to have more information to share this week. XBOX Transfers and Duping Exploits Solving the exploits that have led to the recent XBOX transfer limitations are still a urgent issue that the engineering team is working on. Transfers have been limited because It's important to try and minimize the impact of duping. We also hope to have more information on transfers this week. Misc Valguero Issues There are some misc. issues related to Valguero (missing wyverns, etc) that will be patched once the more critical issues have been addressed. Primitive+ Missing Content The engineering team is close to a patch for a recent update that caused Primitive+ content to go missing. We'll have more information on this soon! EVO Event Survivors on all platforms (including Valguero) will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 16th of Aug at 1 PM EST until Monday the 19th of Aug at 3 PM EST.
