  1. Whats the point?

    Whats the point of playing ark? I thought the game was in beta to resolve these issues such as duping, ddos attacks etc. And yes, Duping is now a thing on the new servers. After all the beta did last 2 years but still the game gets fully released and people are still able to knock servers offline and duplicate. Joke
  2. Currently Scorched servers are a safe haven creating untouchable Alpha tribes that are capable of wiping every server that is connected to the server cluster. This has been discussed on many forums, Reddit posts, and social media platforms. The devs have turned a blind eye to this game breaking mechanic. The transferring of unlimited dinosaurs and items from Scorched to Island/Center has caused the wipe of many tribes within hours of transferring to the server. These tribes that are being wiped have spent thousands of hours building up on their Island/Center servers. There is no way to predict or retaliate these attacks. This has already began to destroy the ARK Community and has made many official servers desolate. Let's not let them ignore this issue any longer. Let's be so loud that they are forced to address this game breaking issue. Please help our voices be heard.
  3. Skins Missing

    So i play ark on both Pc and PS4 but last week I was playing normally I had all my skins in my inventory even when i died all my skins would still respawn with me but a few days ago I didnt have internet connection so i played ark singleplayer after deleting the datas after i got my internet back i went on different servers and i noticed all my skins has dissappered and my notes, map and dossiers also reset to nothing I still have all my achievements so basically everything reset apart from the achievement??? please help!!!!
  4. Dear Developers, Server 167 has suffered a one month rollback. The Server has had no major issue or bug that warrants a month-long rollback. This is the fourth time we have been rolled back to this exact same point in time on the server. This rollback however has been the most severe, with many players losing hundreds of hours of gameplay. I am sure my server mates will fill you in on the extent of the loss. Thank you for your time and we hope for a solution for this issue. Regards, Ozeuth
  5. Undermapping Glaciers

    I'm built on the southernmost glacier on the west coast on official Xbox pvp the island, and I have people constantly trying to under map me with rafts. I've found where this spot is and I have it blocked with my own rafts and a tek force field, but this is a fragile and temporary solution to a very big issue. I'd be happy to send photos/videos of the issue to help solve the problem and make other people aware on how they can protect themselves until a permanent fix is out
  6. ever since patch 264 players are randomly teleported to the host seems to only happen in certain areas even when there 10 feet away they will be teleported like there outside the tether range makes it almost unplayable please resolve this
  7. Under the map wipe = OP

    How are we a few weeks away from official release and still have people able to get under the map and wipe? This is nonsense.
  8. so its that time of the patchcycle again, i got loads of wild dinos spawning in my base, alpha raptors, diplos, therizinos, and all the herbis, have shown up, so far, i have a tight mesh of foundations wich is supposed to prevent exactly what is happening now, gamebreaking, fix pls,
  9. For the past 2 weeks servers 377, 378, 379, and 380 have been crashing and roll backing to their previous saved point causing dozens of players to loose tamed dinos and wasting hours and hours of our time. Does anyone know when this will be fixed? Is it someone ddosing and duping? Or is it actual server software/hardware problem? Does anyone have a serious and truthfull ansewer? I just want to go no life ARK for the summer but it sems I can only play for an hour or two a day. And if anyone knows whos duping on these servers please tell me, and lets report them so everyone can return playing on these 4 servers normally again. Thanks!
  10. isolated servers are constantly crashing to the point where you cant do poop. I downloaded a bunch of crap on 37, an hour later server crashes, and 3 days of work simply got deleted. Its bad enough you made me pay for free poop, can't you for once in your crappy life time make the game work? It's not like you have years of experience raptoring everything up. Oh wait, you do. People should get fired.
  11. I hope this is an April Fools joke

    So I purchased Ark a few weeks ago after building a new computer that could run this gorgeous game. I have encountered various problems that have persisted through out my player experience. However, the most pressing matter on the ballot is the new patch. I am fine will all of the new content that is added, but severely disappointed and upset at the same time. Flying Mounts- Flying mounts are ruined. While the change may not be as noticeable for extremely high level flying mounts, the rest of the people who have tamed a Pteranodon, Tapejara, Wyvern, Argentavis or Quetzal will feel the burn. They are completely useless now. Stamina fully depletes withing seconds and having to sit on a rock waiting for it to regenerate is not very fun (the whole point of a flying mount, is to fly). There are very few options for people looking to tame a flying mount, and with those options being made less desirable, you are hurting your own game Wildcard. There is a plethora of ground mounts to choose from each varying in purpose and usefulness. A raptor is a more reliable mount than Argentavis now. Flyers are needed to obtain and transport metal (as well as other goods) across the large and hostile maps of the Island, the Center, and Scorched Earth. They are an essential part of the game for most people. New UI- Hey, what really screams survival? A 4X or space based RTS game's User Interface (menu)? Wow, that was my first thought too. Sarcasm. The new UI is clunky and terrible. The greens and blues of the original menu really blended together and complimented the fact that this a survival game. I know you want to make everything look "space age" now since you have added in tek tier items, but for the 99% of the player-base that does not have those items, it looks weird and out of place. Having to manually sort through folders to craft one item is tedious, and having to right click instead of using buttons is even worse. I do appreciate the upped resolution of the text in chat though. I hope this is an April Fools joke, as the game has become significantly less fun due to these changes. It is funny how you want to "balance things", yet you still allow people to transfer all their items and dinosaurs through the obelisks and wipe server after server after server. (That is a topic for another discussion though). Thank you for your time, and while I am only one person speaking, I can guarantee you there are a thousand people who feel the same as I do.
  12. The first and for-most problem i see people talking about in chat all day long is the extreme amount of lag that has come since we went to v255, not being able to access anything or use anything for up to minutes at a time watching as our babies die because no one can use or access anything, or watching as a rouge Argentavis kills our dinos because we cant attack it, ride any dinos or whistle to neutral for up to minutes at a time , everyone in my tribe has either lost an important dino or nearly lost one entirely due to lag and asking around in chat shows every other tribe has been dealing with the same thing across all official servers, and now today i come online to most of my tribe messaging me asking me if anyone else is able to connect to any server and the answer is NO, most of us cannot play the game today for what ever reason, most of my tribe is unable to connect to any official server, we have been trying to connect to our two main servers for hours now and looking at the server population, all the servers we play on have less people than normal suggesting this problem extends far outside my tribe, its the way of early access games to make a great game and then constantly make it worse with premature updates, this is why pretty much every other early access game has a stable branch and an dev branch so they can avoid losing their player base and i hope wildcard has the sense to do the same before they kill their player base off before the game actually releases, the massive amount of lag since we upgraded to v255 had figuratively made the game unplayable however the inability to actually join a server has literally made the game unplayable for the majority of my tribe and i hope wildcard can fix this issue before our dinos starve or die off due to no one being able to log in and take care of them. My best advice to Wildcard or any game dev for that matter is to actually play your game and ask the players what there biggest problems are and you will learn very quickly and easily what problems you need to focus on, before V255 the main things people complained about were mostly getting stuck in dinos, walls and floors, as well as dinos getting stuck in each other, after v255 i cant look up at global chat with out seeing someone complaining about the lag, for an early access game feedback is very important and with this BS forum site that you cant actually use the forums unless you notice the message telling you to update your profile and select the "i am human" option is completely idiotic considering we already did the i am human test when making the account and its even dumber when you realized the majority of your players think the site is just broken and are still waiting on a fix so maybe use your brain fire who ever thought that was a good idea and make it more obvious what you have to do to actually use the forum, i made an account did the i am human test while creating my account, verified my account from my email and still cant do anything on the forums? unless i decide to check my message box on this website and notice the message telling me i have to edit my profile and click i am human..... so yeah most people wouldn't bother checking there messages when they cant even make a thread considering the messages you would be expecting on a site like this would be in reply to a thread or post
  13. We are havin issues with the survivor duplicates every time we upload, so it leaves one copy behind on the map we are uploadin from. Not the biggest issue, but with the tek tier coming its gonna be since its linked to the survivor and only completly available on the island. Only solution i found so far is takeall when returning. But with 10 tribes and everytime a player wants to get the tek. This is on xbox dedicated server.
  14. Can't harvest

    Ok just wondering if anyone is have a problem with harvesting and such, after a while the game stops letting me harvest what do i do? if this is a glitch in the game Devs Plz move swifty and fast to fix it its breaking ur game.
  15. On our server, Imperial Dream x2, Beavers and dams have disappeared, and going to the areas where they would normally spawn causes an instant server crash. I'm not sure what could have caused this, but it started happening on a recent update. We are a modded server, but we don't really use anything that could affect spawns or creatures. Don't suppose anyone has an idea of what caused this? I don't have a full rundown of the mods we use, just some extra buiil;ding parts mods, and PImp my Dino at the moment.
  16. Fall under the map nearly every single death that is from a height....0 Bags underwater vanish under rocks or out of sight so you cannot recover your gear or even locate it... ( Why is there no mod or something so your able to locate your dead body?????) Rafts can STILL glitch out the world barrier and protect the items inside.... Quetz platform glitch where is vanished and stands as a structure randomly then begins to teleport you for hours... Spawn in glitch where you login and your under your foundations and its impossible to get out.... knockout underwater causes drowning even with scuba?.?? People spawn in my base even with foundations down..... Lots more to follow.....
  17. I have recently discovered a gamebreaking glitch. Directly across from the Southern Tropical Island, south of the river, is a cave. I noticed while within a great distance of the cave, there is immense frame rate reduction. I explored the cave and found approximately between 100 and 200 cave dwellers at the entrance, and explored deeper to find that mobs were covering the entire floor throughout the entire cave. This glitch is on Xbox One, and has made my experiences very difficult. For the above image, entrance has been cleared, and health stats were changed to assist clear. This may also spread to other caves, so cave exploration may be ruined if not patched. Please, if you are reading this and have also experienced the bug, rate this post so it will be patched.
  18. ok, i guess pvp is not having this issue but we are... people are killing other tribes dinos/bases on PvE by just aggroing and kiting wild Titanos into their bases, this is not helped by the fact that they seem to prefer to walk into bases anyways and noone can tell how they got in ... also that they just wipe the floor with 200+ gigas... and even if they couldnt kill your defending dinos its just annoying as raptor to have the raptoring titanic parked in your yard. either remove them or finally implement the feeding so that we can just lockdown the titanos that spawn and be done with it. thanks for your time
  19. So with all of the item duplication glitches going on, is it safe to say we can expect a full server wipe come release? It seems like this is exactly what needed to happen to bring about a full server wipe for the game.
  20. So an issue has recently occurred on our private server, causing all structures within about a 30 yard radius around a character to disappear when logging in. It happens every single time you log in, and for all players in the tribe, on all structures tribe owned. It does not affect dinosaurs, or dropped items. I have tried looking for someone else with the same problem and I can find nothing. I have tried tweaking all the server settings. (mainly the ones involving structure count and destruction) My current settings are as follows: (We are not using any mods.)

  21. a few days ago server 89 pve on xbox one started having problems with mining metal with any dino on the volcano. weve tried restarting and hard resetting box nothing . now it has gotten worse not only can we not mine metal with dinos on the mountain but little by little trees are also becoming unharvestable and some rocks. think the server is getting corrupted somehow and maybe a simple restart of the server will fix it since the last restart was over 2 weeks ago. please fix this its becoming unplayable as everything has to be done by hand
  22. while hosting a non dedicated server that we have played since launch, i lost power last night and when it came back on a few minutes later, all of the progress in my non dedicated server was lost, our bases, our dino's our material, everything we spent time on is gone. as you can imagine i am left feeling that i wasted my time, as well as my friends time, and find it hard to start over since this could happen again, and if it's worth even playing due to progress being lost at the drop of a dime. i am hoping there is a fix, only thing i can think of is the saved data was corrupted, but even still shouldn't it go back to a checkpoint, not loose days of progress?

    Not enough servers it breaks this amazing game to not be able to get into a game and even if u get into u can't play with ur friends because there no room for and all player dedication servers the ping is in the1000's -1 ping which is bull shark ( majority of official servers are in the -1 to) please and a LOT MORE because u brought me back in trusting indie games again and u just made me go back to my old view all of them are good in some way but broken in a lot of ways please fix this crap asap
