    Broken Game??!

    Can someone explain why this popular game that has been out for roughly three years and developers have yet to fix game breaking problems? I've played ever since it was in early release for xbox, and have had problems with my game freezing, randomly closing, and worst of all just not working ever since it came out. Just like many other people that enjoy this game immensely, I went out and purchased a second xbox to run my own dedicated server. I have had nothing but problems with this game ever since I made the decision. From corrupt saves, to servers just not loading, and having to restart my xbox countless times just to try to play (and try to get friends into servers). This game could have been so much better on release and now, if these problems were fixed long ago. Other games have their crap together and provide nearly flawless interfaces and game mechanics to allow the user a non-problematic experience. Minecraft for example, has never had a single problem for me and my friends ever since it was released. This game has a much more potential for an enjoyable experience for players that want more than just pixelated blocks to build with. Why can't they deliver this experience? The developers decided to release the game for mobile devices, but have yet to fix their game. I don't fully understand the logic behind it. So, if anyone has any information on how I could fix their game, specifically for an xbox dedicated server not allowing players to join, please let me know. Edit: Here is another thread I didn't have to even look for because there are so many, of a person with way more time played in this game and his rant on more problems this game has. https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/forums/topic/349830-had-enough/

    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

    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
  4. 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.

    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.

    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

    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...

    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
  10. 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.

    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. Hello fellow survivors! This thread is related to a main discussion and review about the official OfflineRaidProtection-Servers which you can find here. In here I will just post a priority version of problems we found so far and possible solutions we already found. Feel free to join our discussion in the other thread! To-Do: HIGH Priority: Make it, so when you log in there will be a timer "[..] minutes untill ORP decays", in this time the turrets will already shoot but your structures / dinos cannot be damged (To prevent people from camping at your base while your offline and waiting for you to come online) Remove ORP from Looting bags (Destroyed structures/Killed players/Dinos) Enable the placement of C4 on structures, that are under the ORP-Timer-effect ([..] minutes till ORP) Remove ORP from tamed dinos that no longer got an tribe (People droppign dodos in your base and then leave their tribe) MEDIUM Priority: Dynamic Auto-demolish timers depending on how many structures are nearby (As mentioned in an ARK Digest) Cap the time of how long the ORP will work untill it disables itselve (1 Week) or let it scale dynamically with the time you played before you log out Enable turrets shooting when you are offline and in ORP mode (People building stuff and drop infected dodos in your base while you are offline) Comment: The reason to not enable turret shooting because people will try to empty them while you are offline is not that big if you think about it. A tribe who can empty-tank your turrets while you are offline is also able to do that while you are online. And IF you are online it may even be alot easier because they can just destroy your electrical outlets or your generator(s). (We concluded that this would not end good, so let's find another solution ;] ) Create an auto-kill timer for Dinos that works the same as the auto-demolish timer for structures LOW Priority Make it, so ORP only activates after a certain amount of time played Only force the autolock system on certain structures that you are most likely to place outside (Compost bin, crop plot,...) remove ti from structures like storage boxes. Make recently damaged structures reset their ORP timer so that you are not be forced to be fast if a tribe logs out while you raid them. Some structures like Feeding Trought and Compost bin have no auto-demolish-timer (Cannot be auto-demolished). this needs to be fixed. That is all for now, i will update this list while we find and discuss further issues. Greets Picolo

    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 ?
  14. 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.

    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!

    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.
  20. 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.
