  1. On October 11th after the server maintenance NA-PvE-TheIsland-PrimPlusCrossArk4 has been experiencing horrible Lag making the game near unplayable, I understand wanting to get new expansions and content out but that doesn't mean to forget about other servers that people are playing on and trying to enjoy. It's been this way for a couple days now. I enjoy the game, but right now I feel like I just wanna quit playing because it feels totally frustrating. Every 5 to 10 minutes everybody is getting disconnected and losing their tames due to horrible lag issues the server freezes in a lag state fairly often and usually takes around a minute to resume play properly, which is really annoying. And then the rubberbanding takes effect and you get slingshotted back several feet. Please try to fix this issue, don't just forget about it.
  2. On our server at least EU 63 RAG lag, dc’ng and crashes, or dashboarding, have become out of control. I fell bad now for complaining for so long when we would disconnect a few times a week back in the day, but with every new update this problem gets much worse. On our server now disconnecting 20 + Times a day is the norm for most and some even upwards of 50+ times a day. This is disconnecting, or crashing and being sent to main Xbox screen. Also lag is well lol, I hate to even complain about as so many do but really it’s absolutly crazy. And it seems like certain areas of the map are triggers or hotspots that are guaranteed to crash your game. As we have been hoping for sometime maybe this will get better instead of becoming increasingly worse as generally the only time most die or lose gear is because of this issue.
  3. So, I was just wondering if the admins we're doing anything about scorched Earth and the constant game crashes. My base is near green ob and around every half hour my game just completely black screens and sends me back to Xbox home page. So annoying..... only happens in/around my base and green ob. And sometimes the center of the map. I've considered moving my base but adobe is ridiculous to make and I have a big base (that's not the cause of the crash believe me, I've played long enough to know the difference)
  4. Hi i just wanted to suggest the idea that you make it so console players can lower their graphics settings like they can on PC in an attempt to increase fps. On console one of the biggest problems with the game is the amount of lag we have to deal with. Players deal with framerate lag, and they also deal with server lag which is an anomaly that likely can't be solved. But if we were able to lower our graphics settings we may be able to solve the fps lag portion of it. Things like detailed grass and surroundings don't seem that importsnt important to me if it meant i could play much smoother and enjoy playing with less lag. Even things like giant dino tails constantly swinging in big bases i feel causes a lot of lag. They removed the swinging animation from the plant species X for that reason so i dont see why we couldnt do the same with dino tails. A base baving having hundreds of gigas, bronto tails etc. swinging constantly i feel creates an unnecessary amount of lag. Consoles can't run at the same speeds Pcs do so having the ability to lower graphics settings may help with those of us who don't have a ps4 pro or even the ones that do. Thanks for reading
  5. So back when I had 100 Mbps I barely disconnected from Ark with the exception of the norm. Once I upgraded to 1000 Mbps I started disconnecting literally every 5 minutes, sometimes sooner, and I'm not exaggerating. (Before anyone says anything, yes, I know the difference between bits and bytes.) Internet speeds on Xbox show 600 Mbps and every other game works fine, I'm not detecting any packet loss, but for some reason Ark just doesn't work anymore with the faster speeds. I connect to the server fine, but for some reason it won't stay connected. I know for a fact that it isn't a bandwidth issue, I've got multiple systems but with everything disconnected from the modem and shut off, the problem still persists with no change, even with the Xbox One being the only thing connected. I've been playing ESO, For Honor, Halo, Halo Wars, smite and other online games with no latency, lag or connection issues at all, but Ark will not stay connected. Also, my wife has an Xbox one as well. I tested Ark on her Xbox and she has the exact same issue. Is there an issue with Ark not being able to handle the high speeds, or is there something going on that I'm not noticing? I'm not sure exactly what to do, I love Ark, but this is making the game unplayable, any help would really be appreciated. Edit: Hard Wired and Wi-Fi both have the same problem .

    Server stress

    Every time we have griefers and defend they leave and stress the server. And currently have locked ip for most ppl on our server, they can’t access our other servers and have proof. The biggest issue is the stress on our server has made lag so bad I’m not getting 100% imprints! I work hard for my imprints and now my 190 wyvs will be not fully done 🤬😡
  7. Why my galaxy S8 is lagging so much in ark?? It's almost impossible to play!
  8. Everything is just like stopping loading. The character moves very hard and stuck. And even got crashing when i want to chat. Pls fix it as soon as possible. Im using android versiomn on xiaomi redmi note 4x phone!
  9. It first started happening a few weeks to a month ago. I had just finished raiding a Chinese tribe, and then less than an hour later, all servers went down. This is when there was a support page in the game. The servers had a roll-back. I had lost everything from that raid. The other day, I had just finished collecting a lot of metal, and the server crashed, and yet again, another roll-back. Fast-forward to today; my tribemate and I had just finished collecting a bunch of obsidian, metal, and crystal. On our way back to base, I experienced a lot of lag, I thought it was because of my internet, so I restarted the game. Once I got back, I saw that the server was down, and I was just hoping that there wouldn't be yet another roll-back. When I got back into the game, I saw that we had moved from where we were, to a place that we were like 10 minutes ago. I checked the inventory of our Argentavises and our Ankylo, and what a shocker, the stuff that we had collected was gone. All that time that we had spent on getting the materials was wasted because of the error in the game. Also, the game has been lagging a lot recently, and we have noticed that there has been 40+ people on at all times, and around 5 people are only typing in chat. I had asked why this is, and people were saying that it was because the Chinese were making alt accounts and are logging on so that none of us could log on. I have had difficulty logging onto the server because of this and I'm starting to get really frustrated. If someone could please help me with this, I would really appreciate it, and I'm sure the whole server would too.
  10. Hi, I'm playing ark mobile on Iphone 7 plus which are updated to IOS 11.4.1. Recently, I noticed that my device will spike or extremely lag after playing for a while. Normally this issues happened after I use my flying Dino flies across the island and explored a lot of area. I suspected this might cause by the RAM memory issues where the region are load into the phone RAM when i am exploring and didn't clear after i leave the region. Please help me with this issues, thank you.
  11. As we all know there is a certain lag when the timer in the obelisk/ transmitter runs out. It is very annoying that this lag is still a thing, but if there is a good reason for it it can stay. However there needs to be something done to the user experience of this lag. In my honest opinion it will be solved really easily by showing a save icon while this is happening, so you know when to expect this lag. I already had too many animals plummeting into the lava or get them killed in an other way, so I really hope you guys take this feedback seriously. It should be easy to implement.
  12. Here are a few things that will really help with the game: 1) reboot servers daily at a set time to assist with the lag (i reboot my unofficial daily and it really helps with the lag. If the server does not reboot, then we feel the lagginess, therefore I belive this will also help on the official) 2) Under the OPTIONS on the wheel, switch the CHANGE NAME and SPAY/NEUTER options (I have several times almost 'fixed' my dino when trying to rename them 3) When placing a structure down and then someone tries to build near to "cock'-block your building; the outside of the structure radius is what it should be using. I had to totally redo my gates and walls (bring them in closer) due to someone built as close as they can to me and I could not even finish my build NOR replace/upgrade them. 4) Imprinting dinos, ANYONE in the tribe should be able to care for the baby, especially for the big dinos, like rexes, quetz, and gigas. For if someone actually is trying to get 100% imprint on these, they can not have a job/school/life and risk their health trying to get these imprints down. (Honestly, you have made this game WAY too time consuming. Like you want ppl to neglect their family, friends AND HEALTH). I understand you are trying in make this a tribe game, but with all the scammers/insiders/fakers/thieves/etc that just is not possible. 5) (edited) BIG issue, when we download dinos from the obi, have them spawn off tot he side of the terminal and NOT on top of us. I have gotten stuck under/on top/inside my dinos and other ppl just pulled several out and leave them stacked on top for the terminal making it almost impossible to access it and to pull out our dinos for ours then get stuck on theirs and we can not even put them backdue to the upload timers. When using a teleport pad, it usually pushes the dinos to the edge so why you you make it where when using obi, they do the same. Also, they should be some sort of timer on how long dinos can stay on the obi's metal circle. some ppl sue it as their personal parking lot. WC, you really need to reconsider some of your settings, actual enforce the CoC, and start caring a little more about your customers.
  13. I can't even login today. just love it timeout after timeout at the very least reset the server >.< are you guys hosting ark on a toaster with dialup? It took me 30 mins for 82 to show up on the official server list (not favorites.. OFFICIAL) this is unbelievable, am I asking too much?

    Boss Arena DC.

    On PVE Official Servers. Ragnarok, Island and Aberration. Entering the boss fights about 25-50% of the time, it always seems that players cant load in properly/lag out/fatal error. It wiped a beta rockwell run the other night. Damn near wiped another run tonight on gamma ragnarok when 6/8 players randomly dced with fatal errors. It was supposed to be a shoe in run, but it really stinks when an alliance member/ critical player in charge of dino control groups DISCONNECTS at the beginning of battles. Luckily, we loaded back in and since the ragnarok arena was so huge the remaining 2 members could kite everything away from our sleeping defenseless bodies... (rockwell/Island Dragon arena runs were not so lucky) My suggested fix is creating a protected load in area that players warp to once the battle begins (impermeable tek forcefield or something). Have the countdown for the boss battle to begin occur within the boss arena itself. Keep the player and boss isolated and restricted mobility on seperate sides of the arena. This will protect the players that haven't even successfully loaded into the arena, from dragon fireballs or rockwell orbs that just fry lagged out players like sitting ducks. Our server is gearing up and grinding thousands of cumulative hours towards downing the Alpha Dragon on Island. If when we go fully decked out with our best dino breeds and rare crafting bonus gear, and a DC lag issue causes a failed run, I can only promise one thing. I will stop playing immediately and never recommend the game to anyone ever again. Please fix this feature. Bosses are one of the coolest experiences ARK has to offer, but only if you can actually play the game as it is meant to be played, smooth and not glitchy. Cleaning up the Boss arena entrance interface could also be an opportunity to finally end obelisk congestion disputes. Imagine loading up dinosaurs one at a time the same way you transfer them to another server. Then once you have your team loaded up and locked in to be sent the arena you can initiate the countdown. This would eliminate all the trolls that block and grief the obelisk areas. Thank you for taking the time to consider this request. AFXACID

    Booted From Server

    I live in America, so naturally I play on the NA servers. I am on a low population, NA, abberation server. 2 Times in a row now after spending the entire day hunting reaper queens, getting pregnant and than attempting to level up by killing more reapers I have been booted from the server whilst fighting a reaper queen. I run games on my PC simultaneously whilst playing ark on my xbox and have absolutely no issue with my connection. My internet is flawless, yet I get booted from the servers repeatedly (connection on PC, phone, etc remains perfect). This time, My level 135 reaper queen was aborted due to radiation and I lost my Max tame male breeding shinehorn. I am a long time Ark player and take the game very seriously, however, I am very inclined to quit the game because by no fault of my own, and due to how poor your servers run, EVEN ON LOW POP NA, I can lose everything on my person and whatever tame I have simply because you cannot run functioning servers. So, I will be awaiting a reply to fix this, and I can assure you if this is not addressed, then you will lose someone who once loved this game.
  16. Wildcard whats the chances of some more oceanic servers?
  17. If your favorite thing is to be killed by "invisible" Raptors including your tames or lag to do anything like ride a tame. North America PVP server Scorched Earth 95 is the server for you!
  18. Hello everyone, wanted to ask you guys who have built a big massive mega tribe base on ark ps4 servers , is it give you like 1 frame per 10 seconds when you are inside the base and your game keep crashing and make you suffer while playing?? Or is it only me here ....!

  21. Since the recent update on the 26th our Raganrok server is going through some major lag spikes and consistent lag. 1 person on; myself. And the ping is bouncing at 255... I need a resolution. Nitrado said it's a known issue but couldn't say whether you; Wildcard is working on it. I need to know something please. Arks Finest Dish - server name to bring up our list of 4 servers. Again only Ragnarok is going through some major life crisis. Please help
  22. The server now performs AI at every server game frame. For every Dino (tamed or wild) and every turret (plant or auto-) that are not in stasis) the AI is performed. These AI characters are often called NPC (non-playing-characters). For turrets it checks in an area if there is something to shoot at, for every tamed dino it decides whether to eat, poop, wander, lay eggs, give birth, do evasive action when attacked. If aggressive it also checks an area to seek prey. Wild dinos do mostly the same except give birth. The AI of turrets apparently takes the most time (mostly because of high range turrets searching a much larger area then low limit ones), hence the recent turret limits. A server rate can vary between (>0 and 14+), the lower, the most apparent lag. The question now is: is it really necessary to perform AI for every NPC on every server frame, or every type of AI for an NPC on every frame? What if we do AI every 2nd server frame? That would reduce the server CPU time used on AI to half. Just test for each NPC if a random number between 0 and 1 is lower than 0.5, and skip the AI for this NPC if it is. It doesn't really matter if a turret checks 4 times, or 2 times a second for stuff to shoot at. Chances are an NPC doesn't (or does) perform AI for a number of consecutive frames, but this only makes the game play less predictable. It seems easy to implement and test.

    The Center

    I am playing single player on a Xbox one x and I am currently on the Center map, I go near or into the South Island cave and it is unplayable, hundreds of creatures are spawning and as fast as you kill them more just keep coming, causing massive lag ( even flying above this area causes lag) hundreds of creatures are pouring out the cave entrance near the beaver pond and one area has them coming out of the ground, I tried the water entrance from the tropical island side, lag got so bad had to Xbox quit and once again hundreds of spawns. I went into a cave on the middle jungle island which had dire bears, there was like 50+ the lag was not as bad but why so many spawns? They just kept coming. it sad really, that the game In some Areas is unplayable and from what I have seen posted it’s a know issue for along time, is it going to be fixed? Or is there a work around? I did a destroy all dinos and it stops the lag but they all eventually respawn and it starts again, literally hundreds of them. please help, thx in advance one very frustrated Ark player!!!!

    Ive been playing in Asia server 484 on ps4 and lately theres been plenty of lag and crashes all day. Ive been trying to raise my babies but it's difficult when the server lags then crashes for hours.
  25. Hello, i've just made an account for these forums as I have not really found any relevant or recent topics of people of the same issue. I hear many people say that servers get laggy and such around update days. My problem is that as of 6th and 7th of March 2018 the server that i run on my own setup has been running smoothly for roughly around a month and a half, with little to no issues. I was running the game fine during the 8th with no lag in my base like usual. Up untill around 5pm gmt where my friend who i play with joins (from a different but nearby country me being UK/ her being Czech rep who has a better connection than I) and the server starts to lag out (255 ping) (usually about 15-30), but i notice that the game has updated aswell and mods needed updating aswell (Structure+, Platform+, Snappy Saddles and rafts) (the only 3 mods we use). Everytime we are near our base it lags out, but nothing had changed from the previous day, if anything we have less dinos (as we tried a small purge to see if it helped the issue). Now i've seen some people recommend resetting the GameUserSettings.ini but I am hesitant and pretty inept at this type of thing untill i know what to do (as i don't want to break or ruin something) as we have NoFoundations setup and resetting the .ini would perhaps cause us to lose buildings. Im not sure on whether this is something to do with a problem on my end, or a mod causing lag, or perhaps our base being too big (which its not, and its been the same size for 2-3 weeks now with 0 issues) We have been breeding for mutations. and in the server admin log i see a constant spam of (allosaurus being killed/tribe tamed) even if neither of us is online but the servers running, and we haven't bred any Allos in a week. Which has me suspicious. Any help would be very appreciated as I don't want to lose interest in the game and get stressed over it as its our place to hang out and have fun.
