      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

  1. Honestly, I've been playing Ark with friends for almost a month now after dropping it shortly after it first came out, and I have to admit that I was having fun. We play on OfficialServer21 - NA for reference. In the past two-three weeks though, there have been more and more problems arising. I bought Scorched Earth for my friends and I, as well as Aberration. The first time I transferred over from one server to the next, it went without a hitch. This most recent time, however, I lost my character that I had been playing with for the better part of 3 weeks. My friends convinced me to start a new one, after I submitted a support ticket, which by the way hasn't even been acknowledged a total of 3 weeks post-delete, and now today I log on to find the server has been rolled back almost 24 hours, back when our new base wasn't quite complete and our dino pen had too low walls. This was annoying at first as it was a lot of progress lost, however, a kind Therizino that, I guess RNG'd because he wasn't there 24 hours previous, decided to help and slaughter all of our tames. Is this really the "fully released" survival game I paid over $200 for copies for all of my friends and I were promised? If so, I'd love to hear an explanation on why I shouldn't start a petition for refunds.
  2. im going to say this again, and im going to repeat myself again in the future. im sick of the amount of updates to the game. sometimes 2 a day. there have been ~50 updates since "release at full price" the problem that causes most people to crash and burn are your updates to textures (think rock breaking crash on SE, or your recent new rendering code). why are you not putting this petty and untested stuff into a BETA TEST channel where it can be tested before you push another 50 updates by the end of the month. TEST IT!, THEN PUSH IT! i see NO reasons for the tools available to not be used.
  3. Ragnarok - Megapithecus: Beta!

    Hi guys, I know that this topic is a little annoying to who know who defeat it but... I am preparing my army to go there. How is your setup that you guys are using to defeat this boss? 19 Rex and 1 Yuti? or 19 rex and 1 daeodon? And the stats leveled of rex's, 30k hp - 450% melee is ok? Thanks guys, have a nice week!
  4. Ascension

    I was wondering how Ascension works? How do you know when you are gamma, beta, or alpha? Is there a certain level you have to reach or do you have to defeat a boss to ascend?
  5. Buenas soy un jugador de ARK desde la beta, tengo mas de 3000 horas jugadas, y jugado en oficiales, privados, custom y mantenido servidores. (DLC) para Octubre y una más para el próximo año y el día de hoy el juego fatal, los servidores están con mucho tiempo, no hay casi servidores, con el mapa de Ragnarok es muy ridículo la cantidad de servidores que tienen puestos, después de 70 ranuras, como mínimo poner 100 ranura como mínimo, todos los servidores saturados, la gente construye en cualquier zona de bloqueo de recursos o respawn de pj, colocan cimientos y pilares en todas las partes, una que los logos entrar en un servidor luego tienen una odisea para poder encontrar un lugar donde poner tu base, tenia menos lag en los servidores que el juego beta que actualmente, me parece un verdadero fraude por parte de la compañía, pero de 3000 horas jugando a una beta reportando los errores para salir del juego oficial en el juego, luego entrar en ARK primitivo,el juego en el cargar 30 minutos contados de reloj, 30 minutos para poder entrar en un servidor y después entras continuo y igual buscar zona para poder construir una base imposible, de verdad espero que lo solucionen y espero que algún administrador o moderador de foro me de alguna respuesta, por qué pienso tranvía una reclamación.
  6. Me and my two friends have played ark a long time but we are much slower on progress because we play on mostly default settings (default difficulty, stats, resource gathering, etc) i tend to play in my own world a lot which is very similar say for a few increased options like spoil time, taming speed (not instantaneous still), and some utility stuff like cave building and flyers. We play on Xbox, single player and non-dedicated host sessions. So ive been looking at the bosses stats on the wiki (which btw severely needs updating) and looking at the numbers i dont see how even high level rexes and such can last against these bosses, my friend went on a test world to spawn some in and see, and the broodmother was dealing 20k damage in under a minute... So basically the question is has anyone beaten the bosses without changing any settings?
  7. So the game has been in beta for so long and there a lot of people like me that we been playing a reporting bugs (some people just play the game but oh welll they did support the game by buying it ). It would be cool to give a special beta testers skin to every beta user and a beta tester achievement like blizzard does all these years for all of us that test their games in the beta program. Its a nice touch to thank us all.
  8. Beta player rewards

    I'm unsure if this has been addressed anywhere, I've tried to dig up some information but had no luck. I've been a strong supporter of ARK since the beginning, I have my Parasaur Stylish Saddle Skin that I still trot around in. I have the game on both Steam and Xbox One, bought Scorched Earth and put many extensive hours into the game. I've been seeing lots of rewards for new players who buy the special edition and the pre-order bonus skins and I understand that's how the game industry and market works, I'm a Student of Game Design and Development myself. However, it seems a little odd to me that I can not find rewards for long lasting players who have been the basis of funding. It might just be me not searching in the right places, Are there any rewards for long-committed players? Having just finished university, I do not have the money to go out and re-buy ARK again for the same console despite how much I really want that special edition. Thank you for the time
  9. Some time ago I saw that some players have a winged joystick icon of their name, and some of them told me that they were beta testers and tested the updates before they left, so it made me interesting to be beta tester and try it out.
  10. A lot of people have had growing concerns on when ARK will become a full and final release. I decided to look into it and found that, after reading tweets and watching interviews, the overall mindset seems to be this: 3 stages for release. Stage 1) Pre-Alpha/Alpha - This is the current stage. This stage is the point in game development where the base game is being created. The final goal in stage 1 is to release all creatures and features. 6 months ago this seemed like a daunting task, but as time goes on, WildCard has been doing a great job of steadily releasing 2-4 new dinos each month. At this rate(after upcoming v256 update with Equus) there will be 9 remaining unreleased dino dossiers left. Maintaining the current rate, we are looking at approximately 3 months(end of June) before all dossiers are released. This would be a great timeline for WildCard too, because: it'll be around same time tek tier items are finalized, will be around the 2-year PC anniversary for release, and will be in the summer time(which is a huge time for the gaming industry player base). -Once all of the creatures and features are released, the game will transition into the next stage... Stage 2) Beta -Ah, finally! The long awaited 'Beta' phase. Contrary to popular belief, the beta phase, NOT THE ALPHA PHASE, is the time in game development where bugs, glitches, disconnects, networkings, graphical issues, updates, nerfs, buffs, etc. takes place. If you ever follow WildCard in their updates and blogs, you will see a repeated question: "When are you going to update the older dinos looks/abilities/stats?!". The answer to this has, and always will be, "Once we have released everything, we will go back and look over all of our dinos at that stage in the game". In a post dated last June/July, they had given a few examples of their future re-vamps(trike gets a charge similar to Rhino, Alpha Wolves get a howl buff, etc.). What exactly WILL happen or change? Aint got a clue, but I know that's when it will take place. - And, finally, after a few months(or when they feel confident) of Beta, the game will finally be ready for the last stage... Stage 3) Full Release -This one is kind of self-explanatory, but the game will officially be out. We will still receive patch updates for glitches, and we might get some new DLC or what not, but at this stage, those will be far and few between. The game will be released to all in the general public. Hopefully, with new Playstation and Xbox Scorpio, we will get some revamped hardware updates for the game, but only time will tell. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So, Hopefully this will put some peoples' worry to rest. If everyone were to read this and understand that constant complaints about "Gigas/Quetzs/Etc. are overpowered!" or "The old mammals(direwolves, sabers, deer) have crappy models compared to new ones!" and "Why even have Parasaur or Trike or Mammoth in game? There are SO many better options!". All of this and more will be handled in the long-awaited beta phase. Now, I am no WildCard affiliate, but I would argue the timeline will look something like this: Stage 1: June 2015- July/August 2017. Again, like I said earlier, will fall in line with release of original PC version, summer time kids, and the conceptual dossier release timeframe. Stage 2: July/August 2017 - December 2017. This is the time frame that, I believe, WildCard will want to power through all their bugs and glitches. Imagine if all their time spent on releasing and prepping new dossiers and tek gear, they could focus 100% on dino buffs/nerfs/reworks and bugs affecting game? That would be amazing. I also, personally, believe the beta phase information will be gathered and tested on PC, then transferred to XB1/PS4. This way, come the time for stage 3, all Pc and Consoles will be on the same page. Stage 3: December 2017- January2018. I Truly believe that it will take the rest of the year to get ARK to the point of a full release. I believe WildCard would want to start off all the systems on the same patch for day-1 release. At this point in time, servers should be prepped, bugs should be all but fixed, and the holiday season will be upon us. If they are, at all, capable of getting a release out pre-Christmas, this game's sales would sky-rocket. I am excited for this phase in ARK's life, and I hope to see twice as many people play. I want it to be like the initial release, when servers were always 80%+ full. *********** So this is my unofficial take on the scheduled release date. Let me know if yall have any thoughts or ides/critiques on my time frame(preferably other than 'its never getting released, lol!'). I would love to hear what everyone thinks. I just thought this would be a good way to bring some closure and guidance to people who seem to be constantly frustrated with the state of the game. Remember: BREATHE. Game development takes time, give them some more and you will be pleasantly surprised.********* That is all, Thanks!
