      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.

      TLC Update - Ragnarok 'Puzzle' Cave.   03/20/18

        In our most recent Ragnarok Update, the puzzle cave was revised so that it would no longer allow survivors to build within it. Due to this change, player structures found in this location were removed and some dinos became stuck. We will not be rolling back our servers at this time. We would like to keep rollbacks limited to major service-wide disruptions going forward due to complications caused by CrossARK and Tribes (part of being a multi-server persistent open-world survival game). Later today, we'll be rolling a server update which will allow survivors to build in this area for an additional week so that players can move their creatures via a transmitter or teleporter. After the 27th of March, this will no longer be possible so please use this time to remove your creatures swiftly. Console players, please use this time to move out any creatures or structures you have in this cave because once the update hits, you'll no longer be able to do so! Thank you for your patience and ongoing support, survivors!

  1. Hey there guys, since one of the big draws of ARK was the fact that you could tame and ride many of the prehistoric animals in the game I thought would be an interesting discussion of different facts surrounding the various dinosaurs and prehistoric animals. Lets begin, and feel free to add to this conversation... Large Dinosaurs May Not Have Roared - Many scientist that have studied the fossilized remains of dinosaurs have suggested that many of the large dinosaurs may not have had the capacity to roar. Instead my have theorized that large dinosaurs including Tyrannosaurus Rex, Sauropods, and others may have just honked or even chirped. (A bit disappointing) Feathers of Dinosaurs May have Looked Different - Some research has suggested that the feathers on dinosaurs may have looked a bit different than modern day birds. These feathers may not have been bushy or soft but rather like bristles or spiked hair. Connection Between Dinosaurs and Birds Has been around for a Long Time - Paleontologists had made the connection between dinosaurs and birds since the late 1960s/ early 1970s. Mainstream media however didn't really pick up on the idea until the 1990s, particularly with timing of Jurassic Park. Ironically enough one of the first Mainstream movies that made the connection between Dinosaurs and birds was Godzilla 1985 (aka Return of Godzilla 1984 Japanese Title). Many of the Prehistoric Mammals wear still alive at the Dawn of Man - Animals like the Mammoth, Sabertooth Tiger, Wolly Rhino, and others lived alongside of early Man. Many archaeologists believe that mankind is the reason for some of these species to go extinct; however climate change, food shortages, and low birth rates have also been factored as well. Tyrannosaurus Rex Had the Largest Biting Force - Through fossil and computer calculating evidence it has been shown that Tyrannosaurus Rex had the Largest biting force of any Terrestrial (land dwelling) animal in existence. This helps support the idea of a one bite one kill, as a Tyrannosaurus Rex could have bitten down on a prey animal crushing it's spine or neck. At the very least this could have allowed Tyrannosaurus Rex to crush bones to get at the nutrition rich bone marrow that other dinosaurs could not. Why Some Dinosaurs Are More Popular Than Others - With all of the various species of dinosaurs found throughout history why are some more popular than others? Timing and place are the main reason for this. Triceratops, Stegosaurus, and Tyrannosaurus Rex are three of the most popular icons of dinosaurs, mainly out of timing and place. At the turn of the century these dinosaurs were found and found in America. Museums in America were quick to capitalize on these newly found prehistoric creatures to show off to the world (mainly New York City). Also scientists had a very good collection of their fossils so for the most part experts had a very good idea of how these dinosaurs looked. One other huge reason for these dinosaurs popularity was their names, with dinosaurs being found now in lots of countries many people (including myself) have a very hard time pronouncing and even spelling the dinosaurs' names. However a name like Tyrannosaurus Rex (literally meaning "Tyrant Lizard King") is a very simple and powerful name.
