  1. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Extinction Chronicles V! Tomorrow there will be a client and server side update that will bring Extinction Chronicles V to survivors on PC, Xbox, and PS4! Leading up to the release of Extinction there will be monthly drops of Extinction-related Explorer Notes on The Island, Scorched Earth, and Aberration. Once collected these notes will unlock new Extinction-related skins! There will also be the appearance of more powerful Tek-themed Dinosaur variants within the ARKs each month. These Tek Dinos are permanent additions (meaning they will continue to spawn even after the event is over), with a new one beginning to appear each month. In Extinction Chronicles I we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Helmet and the Tek Rex. In Extinction Chronicles II we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Boots and the Tek Stego. In Extinction Chronicles III we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Pants and the Tek Raptor. In Extinction Chronicles IV we released three Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Shirt and the Tek Parasaur. And now, tomorrow we're excited to bring you three new Explorer Notes, the Corrupted Gloves and a new Tek creature, the Tek Quetzal! In addition, special colored dinos will be populating the ARKs. You'll be able to find creatures sporting black, red, green, purple, and white up until the launch of Extinction, beginning tomorrow. Be sure to take advantage of these special colors before they're extinct! Last but not least: just like we did last month, you can expect to see some more extinction screenshots tomorrow here on our forums! Be sure to check back for that. Patch Notes! Here are the full fixes and notes coming in tomorrows Extinction Chronicles V update (PC, console notes to come). Community Livestream #9 Roundup! On October 11th we had our seventh Community Livestream. Thank you to all of those who attended and participated! The community team had a lot of fun and we hope you did as well. If you weren't able to catch the stream you can watch the video-on-demand on our Twitch page or by clicking on the video below. This we toured a map called Fractured, a fantastical setting of floating islands far above the sea. This map created by TheAlchemist is in early access, but features many floating islands that appear to have once been joined, but torn apart by something... very large. We were also joined by special guest Zunit, a PVP player and Twitch streamer. This podcast-style discussion had us chatting about the different types of player experiences on our official network such as 6-man experience versus Conquest, as well as diving into some fond memories of times past. We are accepting any type of ARK related fanart to be featured in the Showcase section of the stream and entries are always open. This can be drawings, videos, builds, ANSEL screenshots, handmade crafts, anything ARK related! You can submit your ARKwork to our streaming email address: [email protected] Be sure to follow us on our Twitch page so you don't miss a stream! twitch.tv/survivetheark We'll be hosting our next Community Live Stream on Thursday, October the 25th at 1PM EST! We hope to see you there Mod Community Updates! Hello Survivors! The modding contest voting period is still open! If you've been on the fence about what mods to vote for, we have been doing spotlights over on our Twitch channel. If you happened to miss any, they are conveniently gathered into a collection that can be viewed at any time. It's not over though, we are only halfway through the contestants. There is still another full week of spotlights to do! So drop by and hang out while we take a dive into the mods offered up by the community. Don't forget to vote, mod authors spend uncountable hours creating content for others to enjoy just out of a love for the game. https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/modding/voting/ I also have a new tutorial ready for you. We're going to be starting on a full project; so the first thing we need is a design document. So let's lay out the plans for our "Virtual Sentry System". ARK Digest Next Week! We'll be doing another ARK Digest post in the next Community Crunch! If you have a question you want answered by the ARK dev team please submit your questions with the Subject "ARK Q&A" to our email address: [email protected] Fanart of the Week! Amphicyon Dossier by Nokryn! ARK: Evolution Event! Survivors across ALL Platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from Friday the 19th of October at 1 PM EST until Monday the 22nd of October at 3 PM EST.

  3. The ARK Conquest servers (on PC) are a special initiative by our partner Snail Games to shake up the current PvP meta and playstyle. Now that these Conquest servers are up and running, we will be handing control of these servers over to them. Effective immediately, the Conquest servers will be wholly operated by Snail Games and any future changes will be made by them. As part of this hand off, their team will be completely responsible for enforcement of the Code of Conduct, including the management of a unique global ban list separate from the main Official Network. Enforcement for the Conquest servers will be driven through the Conquest Discord and future updates and news will be found here. In addition, we will be adding 9 new servers to the Conquest cluster this week. These new servers will have transfers disabled for two weeks and increased rates (3x) during that time. After the two-week introductory period, server transfers will be enabled and the rates will be reduced to match the rest of the cluster (2x). This is to help tribes build up quickly in order to be at a competitive level against other players on Conquest servers. We thank you for your patience during this transition period!

    Conquest Servers Are Open!

    What is Conquest? Conquest is a new PvP player experience for PC players which focuses on large-scale PvP while avoiding the problem of mega tribes. Increased rates will allow tribes to set up and establish themselves quickly and enable them to rebuild after potential losses instead of being wiped completely. Conquest Breakdown: Experience gain, taming, gathering, breeding, hatching, and raising rates have been doubled compared to our standard Official Servers (2x). Tribes are set to 25 players max. Tribe alliances are disabled, though informal alliances are allowed. Servers have a maximum player count of 100. There will be 36 servers in total on the Conquest cluster. Server transfers are enabled. Conquest servers are unaffected by Evolution Events. Enforcement: Our Enforcement team will be expanding to patrol this new cluster actively. We are testing this type of active enforcement and while we know this presents a challenge, we hope to be able to maintain this program while working alongside players. We desire to actively patrol and get to know the players of each server. The leader of each large tribe on Conquest will be able to submit a request to join a Discord server (to be announced at a future date) with access to the Enforcement team. We hope that this style of active enforcement and cooperation from the Conquest players will ensure that the servers are fair, fun, and competitive. The Enforcement team consists of both English and Chinese support, with expansions coming to Russian and Portuguese in the near future. Failure to comply with our Code of Conduct will result in consequences, including but not limited to a tribe, item, structure, and dino wipe by the Enforcement Team. Players should be aware that all reports submitted to Enforcement are taken seriously. Tribe Spotlight Program: It is our goal that your tribe in Conquest will become your identity on this cluster, a team name that you’ll carry with you into battle like a badge of honor. We will be offering clean/validated tribes (via the Discord) opportunities to brand themselves within the community. Tribes will have the opportunity to be spotlighted in articles on SurviveTheARK and will also receive opportunities to be promoted on our social media (such as retweets for content creators). This program is still in development and will be further fleshed out in the weeks to come. The Conquest servers will be spun up and available for PC players on September 28 at 10am PST. We'll be monitoring the success of the cluster and then evaluate bringing them to console at a later date. We encourage PvP players to check these new servers out for a fresh experience!

  11. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Conquest PVP Servers! Today we have some exciting news to bring our PvP official players. We are introducing a new server cluster called: Conquest. In contrast to our successful 6-man tribes servers, Conquest will focus on big tribes (25=player limit per tribe) and big battles. In order to fuel this large-scale fight these servers will have 2x rates compared to other official servers (unaffected by Evolution Events). This will allow tribes to build up faster, gain experience faster, raise, breed, and tame creatures faster, allow more focus directly on battling other tribes. The servers will also be capped at 100 players per server instead of 70. Server transfers will be enabled between servers within the cluster. There will be 36 servers total within the cluster, offering all map types to play on. This batch of Conquest servers will provide a fertile grounds for big tribes to come and play! The Conquest servers will be spun up and available for PC players on September 28. We'll be monitoring the clusters success on PC and then evaluate bringing them to console at a later date. We encourage PvP players to check these new servers out on Friday! ARK Digest 54! Thank you for all of your questions, Survivors! We're excited to be bringing back the ARK Digest as it's been quite awhile since we had one. We plan to do these approximately once a month going forward so Digest 54 will take place near the end of September. Here is our question and answer session with Lead Programmer Chris Willoughby! Survivor Thomas asks, “Will the Titans of the land be a temporary tame (like the Titanosaur's on these Islands in the sky) or will we be able to properly keep them in our collection forever? Will we be able to ride them?” Survivor Caleb asks, “Will there be another dino TLC pass? If so could you provide more details about it? Examples of dinos that could benefit from a TLC pass would be the Carnotaurus, Dimetrodon, and the Sabertooth among others.” Survivor Caleb asks, “If Rockwell is trapped/killed on Aberration, which takes place before Extinction in the story, does this mean we will not receive new additional recipes on Extinction due to the fact that Rockwell is the creator of the recipes?” Survivor Jacob asks, “Will you guys do another live stream of the new dlc Extinction like what you did with aberration?” Survivor Lorenzo asks, “Will the scout in extinction also be able to tag wild dinosaurs and are there going to be more relevance and new features regarding PvE?” Survivor Cyrus asks, “Will Extinction have a similar transfer system that Aberration had during the first few months? Will we be able to download items, Dino’s, or pre existing characters onto the Extinction map?” If you have a question you want answered by the ARK dev team please submit your questions with the Subject "ARK Q&A" to our email address: [email protected] STA Chinese Language Support! SurviveTheArk.com 现在提供简体中文支持以及简体中文举报系统!用户可以在网页最下方选择语言。在更改语言后,系统将会自动翻译相应部分。 SurviveTheArk.com now offers Chinese language support and Chinese PC Abuse System support!

  12. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! Conquest PVP Servers! Today we have some exciting news to bring our PvP official players. We are introducing a new server cluster called: Conquest. In contrast to our successful 6-man tribes servers, Conquest will focus on big tribes (25=player limit per tribe) and big battles. In order to fuel this large-scale fight these servers will have 2x rates compared to other official servers (unaffected by Evolution Events). This will allow tribes to build up faster, gain experience faster, raise, breed, and tame creatures faster, allow more focus directly on battling other tribes. The servers will also be capped at 100 players per server instead of 70. Server transfers will be enabled between servers within the cluster. There will be 36 servers total within the cluster, offering all map types to play on. This batch of Conquest servers will provide a fertile grounds for big tribes to come and play! The Conquest servers will be spun up and available for PC players on September 28. We'll be monitoring the clusters success on PC and then evaluate bringing them to console at a later date. We encourage PvP players to check these new servers out on Friday! ARK Digest 54! Thank you for all of your questions, Survivors! We're excited to be bringing back the ARK Digest as it's been quite awhile since we had one. We plan to do these approximately once a month going forward so Digest 54 will take place near the end of September. Here is our question and answer session with Lead Programmer Chris Willoughby! Survivor Thomas asks, “Will the Titans of the land be a temporary tame (like the Titanosaur's on these Islands in the sky) or will we be able to properly keep them in our collection forever? Will we be able to ride them?” Survivor Caleb asks, “Will there be another dino TLC pass? If so could you provide more details about it? Examples of dinos that could benefit from a TLC pass would be the Carnotaurus, Dimetrodon, and the Sabertooth among others.” Survivor Caleb asks, “If Rockwell is trapped/killed on Aberration, which takes place before Extinction in the story, does this mean we will not receive new additional recipes on Extinction due to the fact that Rockwell is the creator of the recipes?” Survivor Jacob asks, “Will you guys do another live stream of the new dlc Extinction like what you did with aberration?” Survivor Lorenzo asks, “Will the scout in extinction also be able to tag wild dinosaurs and are there going to be more relevance and new features regarding PvE?” Survivor Cyrus asks, “Will Extinction have a similar transfer system that Aberration had during the first few months? Will we be able to download items, Dino’s, or pre existing characters onto the Extinction map?” If you have a question you want answered by the ARK dev team please submit your questions with the Subject "ARK Q&A" to our email address: [email protected] STA Chinese Language Support!
