      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. Xbox Trading Clubs are so bad

    I just recently got into the trading scene on xbox 5 or 4 months ago and through the scams that have happened to me and my tribemate. I just think the moderation on the clubs is horrible it's so easy to scam to since the Admins/Mods just accept every join request so all it takes is a quick fake gmail account and creating a new microsoft account and if you have gold it will be shared to that account due to the home xbox feature microsoft implemented when Xbox one was released and boom you have a fresh account all you need to do is apply to a club wait a day then go look at all the stuff people are selling and it's as simple as porting fake screenshots to the spoof account to show to the seller that it's real. It's ridiculous and I'm not here to complain about how I've lost So much stuff I just think wildcard should make their own verified club so it can be heavily moderated. And I know what your gonna say ''Well just use facebook or a Subreddit or the Official Ark Trader Group'' I agree but as an avid ark player I know the majority of Trades are PvE related and people on PvE are usually casual laid back Older People with Daily Jobs they don't wanna hop on Reddit or Facebook to contact a person Via Dm's they would rather just press 4 buttons to go to a club where things are simpler and the majority of victims are these types of people and this primarily goes to Console Players as console is just simpler as opposed to Pc. I think an easy fix would to have an Official Ark Club for Consoles I don't know about Ps4 but they have something similar I'm sure but if this were to happen I know people would like it. 2:54AM damn what am I doing up this late I'm not even gonna spell check this lol
  2. What just happened?

    Well that's interesting.. I was playing on an official crossplay server when I joined a tribe.. and the bipolar kid in charge got into a hissy fit when a tribe member traded a pter he tamed ( pve) so he kicked 3 of us and has taken all our stuff, dinos and bases .... now some of you might think "that's ok it's the game dynamics." But why ? If someone who is in charge kites wyverns and giga to other ppl and floats about it but other tribe members don't want this then why not have a system where 2 thirds of the tribe can vote out a member even tribe leader.. we can't trade dinos or we get kicked...cant invite ppl or get kicked, can't trade or get kicked, can't build new outposts or get kicked, help him with ab base or get kicked, don't buy dinos get kicked (I see a pattern) he has been yellow carded by W.C twice in a month so my point is why should a tribe of 8 ppl who just want to play and not do silly stuff have to put up with It? Why cant tribe members who have worked so hard have to keep making apologetic comments on global chat vote out someone even a leader if they are so intent on destroying the tribe? Well I guess it doesn't matter all of our dinos are gone and nothing we can do about it.... gg
  3. Help please

    I haven't been able to put in a password or server name since the ragnarok update. It won't bring the keypad for me so I am unable to enter anything into the box. I don't know if this is an Xbox or Ark problem and I made this account just for this so please help.
  4. Future of ARK

    Hey there, I just wanted to open this thread because the following things really bug me since I bought the game in 2015; First of all, the building system, especially the cable and pipe system. I think this is really important to improve it since you need a mod to actually build stuff in a better way and I really hate it if I have to use mods for basic ingame mechanics. I'd also like to see some improvements for the server connection, because it sometimes takes hours for my friends to get into my game, just because they get kicked out by the game after one minute of trying to join. Actual premade stats for creatures, bosses, crafting etc. when you play alone would also be pretty neat, just to start a game faster after you haven't played for a while and don't want to check any single option again because something changed in one of the last patches or whatever... Performence improvements should also still be on the agenda, since directX 12 got cancelled and maybe work on the compression, because I already have 150gb+ on my hard drive. I really appreciate that you began with the TLC's but more needs to be done, especially the Pteranodon, Parasaur, Megalodon, Araneo, Plesiosaur, Carbonemys, Mammoth, actually any old creature should get a TLC, because they either got all replaced or are useless since the very beginning (or just look ugly like the Plesiosaur and Stego). This is nothing really important but it just annoys me that there are no fence gates, I can't even build a farm for my sheep I hope someone finally sees this thread because I try to contact you for over a year and didn't even get a response from the support. Pls listen more to your community, this game could be so much more. Sincerely, a survivor
  5. NW ice cave does not spawn in artifact (SP), and takes more than 20 mins and several re enterings to do so.
  6. Rampant Incompetence

    This game is fun, addicting, creative, beautiful, and caters to a broad range of play styles and gamers of all ages. Not to mention its extremely popular, and is played across 3 systems. That said..fix your game!!! I KNOW its not a priority however. Making more content is profitable, and expending valuable resources to fix problems while you could be making money instead just isnt worth it from a business perspective. I get it... But you guys did a fantastic job making this game that many people enjoy and spend soo many hours playing, and to see simple bugs and glitches go unresolved or unacknowledged, is simply unexcusable if you care about your customer base and quality of service. Your inability to fix main components of your game is going to hurt you in the long run. Sure, many players are currently satisfied, and wont bother to complain. Few ever do, because it takes time to put together a well written or documented complaint. But there are those that notice, that take notes, and become frustrated by a lack of competence to do just do what is required to make things better. if your going to do something, do your best or dont bother at all. I have been playing this game since it launched as a game preview on the xbox one, with thousands of hours of play time. I love this game. My kids love this game. We want to see you stay committed to delivering a high quality product that we can continue to enjoy. In turn, we will remain committed to playing. Thats what its all about. If you lose interest in ironing out this game for a smooth and optimal experience, were going to lose interest too. I am at my wits end currently, and thats why I felt the need to create this thread. I have been compiling my own list of bugs and glitches for JUST the past few months, and I would like this thread to be dedicated for others to document their experiences as well. In my next post I will list what I have personally observed and noted, as well as a collection of other peoples reports I have found. Im invested, thats why I care. I sure wish that feeling was mutual...
  7. drakes Drakes Glitches

    So, i dont know if eveyrone noticed, but sometimes drakes are bugged and only climb backwards...and there is no fixing that without and admin or ticket person. I have been playing on official Aberration the past months and so far lost 3 drakes due to glitches...multiple ravagers...most in the purple area by 40 40...some drakes try to climb and end up climibiing under the map "that is my last ticket"...some just become bugged and become bugged with climbiming upsidedown for ever...and nothing can fix it... Also, by 40 40 purple...there is a hole that is unfinished map part...where people can go underground...or get stuck....like.. a lot of people have... just want drop that information...also, hoping to get my ticket answer...it has been a couple days of waiting...due to that problem in that purple area.... Hope to hear soon from you guys. Aberration player from pc official 222
  8. Fishing from the back of a pelagornis is not working as of a couple days ago. You can ride the pelagornish, land on water and land, and everything as normal, but when trying to fish in a spot where the pelagornis is swimming and there are the appropriate fish (both coels and sabertooth salmon in this case) with a rod with honey (so I know I could catch the fish) you can't even bring out the fishing rod from of the bird's back. It doesn't let you "wield" it making fishing impossible. Fishing still works fine from a chair. Request: Please look into fishing on the pelagornis. It's an extremely enjoyable aspect of the game. My personal favorite.
  9. I have a problem with the game that has not been happening until around twenty minutes ago. Me and my brother both have Xbox Ones. I started an aberration server and invited him around five times while he couldn't join. After this, he tried to start a server but needed help typing in the stats because he can't type with his controller. I offer to help and plug mine in. I find that I can't type anything in on his Xbox either, so when I reconnect mine I find that I cannot type in ARK at all. This is a HUGE problem for my server, since it practically only exists to type in cheat codes. I need help.
  10. So after I updated my Ark with the 1.55 update because of the Aberration DLC, I went to go play on my single player Island character on which I have been working very hard and have spent many hours on to get to a boss solo, its a non online character with no mods or tampering of any kind, and I was really proud of what I had accomplished, I am level 79 and had many tames, even just started a farm. Today however, much to my dismay, I logged in and found that all of my engrams were gone and I had no engram points, I thought to myself "maybe it's just not showing up" so I went to my smithy and it still says I have no engrams, went to my fabricator and still no engrams available, this is very upsetting to me, as I have said, I am preparing for a boss solo and I only need 1 more artifact yet I now find myself without the ability to create anything I need because of this problem. I play on PS4 and I did not have this problem before the Aberration update, It is very frustrating to spend as many hours on this game as I have only to have everything you worked for just disappear, if there is a fix, please let me know, but as far as I know, the only way to fix this is with admin commands, which I do not think are available in single player, my level is still the same, 79, but as I said every one of my engrams are gone and I have no engram points, if this truly is the end of my single player character then this will have pretty much ruined Ark for me, because I will not start completely over after being as close as I was to progressing to a boss and moving on to a new map. If there is a fix, I desperately need it, otherwise I will feel as if I wasted $60 on a game that I spent countless hours on. Sorry for rambling but this is pretty frustrating. P.S. I made this forum account for the single purpose of finding help for this problem, any help is appreciated.
  11. Ragnarok trouble

    I was loading my single player sever on ragnarok and it had said my character had died but when i returned to my base it was not there nor were my creatures. Its only saved my character. Can you help me please!
  12. Dino level problems

    Hello Guys I've been having some problems lately on my ARK dedicated server. Me and my friends are playing on the island map and we have been searching around to find some high level dinos to tame but we can't find hardly any. It seems as if the lower level dinos are over spawning as such and stopping higher level ones from spawning. We have the difficulty set to 5 But we keep finding low levels, we used to never have this and would not find any level 5, 10 and 15 dinos but ever since we switch from ragnarok to the island we have had nothing but trouble. I have tried many Dino wipes but that doesn't seem to affect it. If anyone has any pointers or can help with the situation it would be much appreciated. Thanks McDude2013
  13. Почему я теряю все скины и почти всю карту не было известно? Why do I lose all the skins and almost the whole map was not known?
  14. dedicated server trouble

    i cant join any dedicated server. and i mean anything. all it says is can not retrieve address. is this a problem with the servers my xbox or the game ?
  15. I have a REALLY good suggestion for Ark. Fix your game before adding more maps and dinos! I don't understand why you would add more when there are so many bugs with this game. Random kicks from the game, random crashing, dinos and bodies falling through the map, etc etc etc. Please ark.
  16. Taming A Saber

    So my friends and I are on a dedicated PvE server and we’ve spotted a few 125-150 sabers after losing ours. Every time we try to down it, it dies instead of going unconscious. I counted 4-5 seconds between each shot and a bola as well. Once they get free or are close to death, they run off. I’ve chased them down to shoot them with more tranqs and they just die. I’ve tried this with a Journeymen crossbow and regular crossbow. We’ve also noticed that if we just let them run off bloodied and tranq’d, they run like mad men everywhere and pick fights with Dino’s that will kill them. Anyone else having this issue? UPDATE: We’ve tried both darts and arrows and NOTHING is working. They just run around or die!
  17. missing servers

    i am always finding my server list empty am i the only one getting this or is this a problem with ark or my xbox
  18. Tamed by info

    Basically i havnt played for a while cause of work went on the game and tamed the griffin and normally it would say tamed by : psn id now it says tamed by : in game character name any way of sorting this or is it just how it works now lost acess to some of my dinos because of this too
  19. Ohhh my god am I the only one who wishes Dino's would just ask for they're preferred kibble instead of some off the wall bs that I couldn't tame because tame limit is 200 seriously wildcard either remove tame limit or make to where Rex's (plus every other Dino too) don't ask for freaking terror bird kibble knowing they eat scorpion kibble. Or you could do both remove tame limit and that random kibble bs.
  20. Fix Dedicated Servers

    The dedicated servers have a problem where anyone can join despite the server having a password. If a random joins and gets kicked, there's a 50% chance the Server will crash. This is a HUGE problem that needs to be fixed. The dedicated server menu could use a redesign as well.
  21. Dedicated servers keep crashing. i can't join any dedicated server.
  22. Hi there can any tell me why, after playing Single Player, the character I was using was gone, and also any skins I have achieved are gone as well. My structures and dinos are still there, but my character is gone. After doing the alpha for the Tek Cave, I went through the whole thing and also the end credits, I went to start up and my character wasn't there to download. Can someone tell me what might have happened also I am on PS4. Thank you guys.
  23. I have been hosting for a few months and have never had an issue until last week and today, after a circuit break in my basement I start attempt to start my dedicated server back up (center on Xbox 1) it will load all the way up then go to a black screen then home screen, it did this last week and after 13 hours of trying to fix it, searching forums and 85 hate messages later I finnaly just decided to restore my Xbox witch deleted all my data, my problem here is that it is doing it again and I'm curious if there is a way to fix it without losing game data to where I can host and my survivors are happy by keeping their base and tames, it will load up both other maps but not center, any help will be greatly appreciated, I'm just trying to avoid losing hard work and data for the second time within 8 days
  24. I know what the main problem is with Ark. No, it's not flyer balance/nerf, no it's not the lag and exploits (they exist in every game) it's the content gap between small tribes and big tribes. Before you say "Well, small tribes can still progress end game and get tek gear" Yeah, they can - by going overboard on bosses to make up for all the lost members. I'm not complaining about me and my small tribe not being able to do content by the way, because we already have tek and we're a 2-3 man tribe on official PvP but guess how we got that? mainly killing bosses with our alliances who're 10+ man tribes. We're privileged, lucky, yes. Most players aren't. Most players on Ark are either solo or in small tribes who're being held back from progression, even if that means slowly progressing because they lack members, there's no mechanic/feature to SLOWLY progress. Either go big, or go home. Before you say "They should join a bigger tribe or recruit more members" No, there's too much hassle with recruiting randoms players or players you just kinda know online, even with ranks set etc there's still A LOT of insiding and trouble-causing going on, so most of us don't trust inviting anybody into our tribes where we've spent months on our bases and gathering materials, BPs, tames and breeding tames, etc. We're not going to risk it, simple as. My quickly-thought-up solution: Make it so that boss difficulty scales when there's at least 1-4 players in a boss arena using the usual methods, like a gang of Rex's, or make it so that the Tek caves can be solo'd/completed by small tribes (with challenge, obviously) and have a mechanic where they can farm element, without just cheesing it like the big tribes do, lots of members going ham with Rex's or fab pistols, etc. Just my thoughts anyway.
  25. Obelisks Failed

    Obelisk is losing my animals and items A LOT. Most recently it is if I try to remove animals it crashes the server and then the animals I remove from the transfer unit get lost and I no longer have them in my list and nor do I have them next to me when I am finally able to log back in. This issue stems from the Ark Items list showing I have items but I cannot remove the items after about 200 items added and it stems from lag issues when opening the obelisks. On top of that I have lost many animals from megalodons to raptors, I have lost many saddles I worked very hard to get and so forth. This is making the game a hassle and no fun to play. I love the aspect of the game, but as it is still in development (after two years you would think it wouldn't be) it is making the game unplayable and a nuisance. Thank you.
