  1. TOTALLY AGREE Hodlin!!!! We are not in 1994........in the VERY LEAST save our character data......at least once a day and if you can't do it, then once a week will be fine too. Waiting 2 months is INSANITY!!! They are wasting man hours and time.....and OUR time!!!!!.......by doing these GM meetings......... If you lose your character, it should be simple, put in ticket and within 24-48 hours max, they can pull it back up from their saves and reinstate it on the server it came from EXACTLY as it was saved.......We are in 2020 and YES it can be done with ease!!!!
  2. My friend last night lost everything on his character and thought he lost his character too. By some miracle after a few hours, he was able to get his character to download but all his stuff was gone. I totally agree, it is EXTREMELY high risk to transfer. The wait time is definitely a crazy amount of time to have to wait. Just the other day when I saw 13 minutes to go, I was thinking, this is insane amount of time to have to wait.....I can see maybe 5 minute max so all data can be secured and other things getting finalized in the background....but the timers they have on it now is overkill.
  3. Constant Lag and Down Servers SO FRUSTRATED!!! NA OFFICIAL SERVERS Constantly go down, not for a minute but for many many HOURS. How can anyone play at all with a lag EVERY 5 MINUTES that lasts 10-30 seconds roughly and constant server shut downs every day or two!!! And that's not all folks!!!!! Random disconnects at random times......4 times in 10 minutes for me yesterday!!! I have to fly low to the ground now just to make sure I don't die from fall damage cause they never fixed your characters position to your flying mount in case of a disconnect or server outtage. I have owned Ark since the very very beginnings so I have seen the progression. We LOVE Ark and I do really love this game. They have done INCREDIBLE things and have expanded and added and fixed many many things. Kudos to the team for that..........BUT COME ON DEVS!!!!!!!! IT........IS.......TIME To UPGRADE YOUR OFFICIAL SERVERS to be able to handle 30-40 people on at once and all the stuff going on, on the map. IT IS TIME to take a pause from new DLC's, new dinos, and all those others things you are focused on and MAKE THE GAME PLAYABLE. YES, I am FRUSTRATED.....Anyone who plays Ark all the time knows what I am talking about. We players deal with everything I mentioned above along with a multitude of bugs, incredible building hassles, and very simple things that could be fixed that has plagued this game since day one....and it is still there!!!! Go ahead.....you guys who will tell me.......go to another server, go to a private server, go play another game.....NO I will not!!! I paid for this game, I like it a lot and I expect some attention, for all of us that love this game, from the developers to AT LEAST make the game playable to a proper degree. PLEASE UPDATE TO MODERN SERVERS Thank You!!!! PS, I had to re-post this since someone moved this topic to an incredibly hard to find spot. Hope there can be a sensible conversation about this rather than moving it where few people would find it.
  4. Guys, in my opinion you need to think "Technical"........Yes there are hundreds of creatures out....people love to show off, that will never stop. The major problem currently is that the servers are NOT "Modern" high end servers. The game has had an increase in players big time over the last few years, so yes I see 30-40 players on at once on official, with server player cap saying 70 players max (if I remember correctly). Last night with only 5 players on, the server lagged every 5 minutes for anywhere from 10-30 seconds. Today it crashed again with ongoing down time of about 6 hours now. A grand total of 26 hours in the last 5 days.....down. They NEED to UPGRADE their servers to powerful MODERN servers that can handle the load. With a game like this, raising a giga that might take weeks for the normal person, is NOT a game you can just simply wipe every few months. They MUST upgrade their servers to handle the load in my opinion. I know tech, I know what's out there available and I don't think they are using it. Another possible option???? Add a ton more servers to handle the increase in players and reduce that 70 cap to 40......just sayin.
  5. OFFICIAL SERVER CONSTANTLY DOWN - WHY??? SO FRUSTRATED!!! NA OFFICIAL SERVER 560 is CONSTANTLY DOWN......for a total of 24 hours in the last 5 days....still ongoing down as I write this going into hour 25. How can anyone play at all with a lag EVERY 5 MINUTES that lasts 10-30 seconds roughly and constant server shut downs every day or two!!! And that's not all folks!!!!! Random disconnects at random times......4 times in 10 minutes for me yesterday!!!

  6. WOW, I can't believe they still did not fix this problem after over a year of me first seeing this when I was kicked too for the canvas issue. Pumping out new content, making good money and they can't fix the stupid small Cra* since early days!!!!!! Simply WOW!!!!
  7. Hello Early Birds, I am far from saying "wipe the servers". That would be the last thing I would want. The problem as I see it is the 20-45 second Lag Issue. The new Official PVE Server I am on right now as of late last night has the same exact issue, 20-40 second lag times every so often even when there are only 10 people on in the middle of the night. Not only that but after I was on for a bit, it crashed for 4.5 hours!!! There are 2 things that would help these issues. Both are fairly obvious, Upgrade to modern servers that can handle the load.....we are in 2020 and I know great powerful servers out there. Second, since the game has become so popular, and I am sure they are having really good profits, simply add more servers to handle the increase of players who wish to play on Official. I don't know what their situation as to finances, overhead, salaries, etc are but I feel fairly confident that they are not starving. So that said, again, I do not wish for any server wipe, that is my biggest nightmare after investing over 2400 hours into the game. All this is of course just my opinion, but people should be talking about it. Maybe they will hear.
  8. OVERCROWDED NA PVE SERVERS - HOW CAN I EVEN PLAY? Hi Guys!!! I have been playing Ark since the early beginnings and have recently started playing again after taking a break for a year. I first filtered through all the "Official", NON legacy servers (PVE) to see which server I should start off with. The first server I selected, I was spawned into someone's base. As I ran around I noticed I couldn't build ANYWHERE as it was so extremely overcrowded, with small and large bases, and pillars literally everywhere I went. I then proceeded to try another server........then another and another. Each and every Official, non legacy PVE server I went to was the same exact thing!!! I tried one last thing, I went to Battlemetrics and picked the least popular Official, non legacy PVE server I could find. It was in the range of 300-400 in ranking. That was also exactly the same....simply overcrowded, in almost every spot on the map (I flew around and looked). With that being said, the LAG SPIKES on all my trials was absolutely CRAZY. The game was BARELY playable. On all trials the spikes happened at least every 5 minutes, lasting anywhere from 10-45 seconds. My question is this, How is anyone supposed to be able to enjoy the game? I know you will say, "play solo" or "find a non official server" but what if someone wants to play with other people on an official server? Since the game is so popular now and has progressed to a really good game, WHY are there no new official servers being added every so often as more and more people start to play? I just wanted to see what people out there think about all this. Thanks
  9. Thanks Guys, already did that before posting.
  10. SERVER NOT RESPONDING OFFICIAL PVE LEGACY SERVER 31 NOT RESPONDING I can't log into the server and had some friends who play on 31 try also with no luck. It just keeps timing out. Other official servers are not a problem, just this one. In the meantime, time keeps running on the server and that is a big issue where we could lose things. This has been going on for about 4-5 hours. Please fix ASAP. Thank You!!!
