    Aberration is a trap

    There are a few very interesting creatures there: the very versatile Rock Drake and Reapers; and Karkinos is also a useful transport. Not to mention glowpets that are also extremely useful. And the tek pod engram is also not to neglect.

    Aberration is a trap

    Aberration is the most difficult map. So many challenges. That's why so many players hate it. Whether it is PvP or PvE, it's really hard to start from zero. That's why I love it so much. A true challenge, requiring skill and wits. You have to think before acting. Plus back in the days we had to deal with creatures dying and falling through the mesh. Haven't encountered that anymore, finally! The map is so beautiful, real eye-candy. Mechanics are completely different from any other map. You get some nice adrenaline here and there. I started to play Ark on the first day of Aberration. Was a really interesting experience and I still go back with joy. No other new map has caught my attention like that. Extinction comes very close.
  3. Extinction493 is again rubberbanding, with constant serverwide disconnects and huge lag spikes every 2-3min. Completely unplayable. Sent numerous outage reports, again. No improvement for days now. @Cedric Please consider an overhaul and assessment of the entire server network as a top priority. Look at how big this issue is, how the number of posts exploded here. If the server is not functioning, how are we able to enjoy the game properly? We don't need any new content on servers that we can't play on; it's absurd.
  4. Servers are again unplayable with regular ping over 200. Island346 rubberbands like crazy. The servers can't take more than 20 players at a time. I have said it before and many others: the whole server network needs an overhaul. I don't want any more content, events, bugfixes - all are pointless if the server is unplayable. This should be nr. 1 priority! Extinction493 for example is unplayable for months now and outage reports do squat. There were weeks without battle eye. Nothing has been done to improve this since winter event.
  5. The question is if the guys responsible for the servers at Wildcard are looking at these statistics. Considering the state of the network right now, the intuitive answer is a big NO.
  6. Extinction493 is a mess still. Global disconnects, 255 ping and horrible lag every few minutes. For at least a week now. Was even worse before. Might be related to the increasing number of box tribes but the poor performance is there even after server restarts and with under 10 players at a time. Outage reports did, like always, NOTHING! What a joke!
  7. And for the gazillionth time, serverwide disconnects, rubberbanding, 255 ping and horrible lag make all my official servers unplayable, regardless of map. Many thanks for another event on top of old problems that only get exacerbated during these times. Everybody shouts it out loud, but somehow every Dev in every team is death: your entire server network needs an upgrade, they just can't handle events and more than 10 players at a time. @Cedric I would really like a community crunch with statistics on server outages, average ping, disconnects, offline times, especially during the event. I personally would like to see those statistics for EU servers. I know the numbers of my servers and it is sad. I have made so many outage reports during the last years but I am 100% sure that no one reads them. During the last event our Extinction493 server was without Battle Eye for the ENTIRE duration of the event, with reports being submitted daily, to no avail. In my humble opinion, the only real priority now is an entire overhaul of the server network. No other content, no fixes, no nothing, just a complete focus on servers that can actually keep the game running for us.
  8. Not really impressed by Genesis too and the limitations it imposes, but the story of Ark isn't even close to what you are saying. It's not about aliens. It's about the downfall of humanity through Element and a dying Earth, the efforts of survivors to "fix" the Arks and bring them back to Earth as seeds for a new beginning, it's about ascension and becoming Homo deus. All of this actually has nice parallels to my favorite TV shows: Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis.
  9. You are kidding, right? It's the same performance on all my servers. Rubberbanding is still there on Island346 and Extinction493, high pings also. It was better only during the first day of genesis when all the players moved to those servers.
  10. Content Removal Dear Wildcard, Thank you again for another "fix". Devious content removal is a new low. Did it upset someone at the top that players enjoyed zombie creatures as decorations in the base?Did we surpass the amount of fun that is tolerated beyond utter frustration? All zombie variants of creatures have been deleted (was not even in the patch notes! So much for communication). All zombie creatures that were in cryo have now the bugged raptor icon and can no longer be deployed. As a bonus, every single piece of candy from every single event in the past has been removed. Thank you for the wasted time grinding my Easter eggs. I have never seen any game where the developers are so keen to develop against their community. Again, many thanks! Hope it was worth it and that this fixes your constant lag on almost every single server where the playercount exceeds 10-15 players, hope this fixes the deleted creatures during the many bugs, hope this fixes the exploits, the griefing and crashing (*sarcasting clapping*).
  11. Island 346 is down. On a thursday night! After the event and a restart. Should be working perfectly. Is not, for months now. Look at the downtime history: https://www.battlemetrics.com/servers/ark/73234/downtime. The entire Ark Network needs an upgrade. Your servers, Wildcard, are not handling the player count (at around 10-15 atm.).
  12. Event just ended, for PC at least.
  13. And Extinction 493 is STILL without Battle Eye. 90% of the event the server has been without Battle Eye. Nice concept of an event. Too bad we can't play it.
  14. Extinction 493 is without Battle Eye for over 4 days now!!!!!! This is how efficient a report is. And if it still isn't clear, yes, I submit one every time there is an issue. @Cedric could someone, anyone please check the status of servers? It's really bad out there. Just waiting for this event to end. A huge fail. I really hope they don't launch Genesis with all these issues going on, that would be the nail in the coffin.
  15. List of unplayable servers Another event that makes the game completely unplayable. Guess WC never learns from mistakes. But if by some miracle someone actually listens to our problems and the severe status of the server network, let us make a list of official unplayable servers. Here is a head start: Island 346: rubberbanding, disconnects, 255 ping issue, very poor general performance, that is when the server is actually online. Downtime history is a joke. Aberration 220: Battle Eye down, disconnects Extinction 493: Battle Eye down, disconnects every 5min, 255 ping issue, rubberbanding PS: Please don't suggest submitting an outage report. We all did it, it never actually helps.
