pomue#9999
We’re back with another ARK tale from the past. In today’s story, we relive the tale of our first bout with the Island Dragon Boss.

It’s a rainy day on the ARK as our tribe is gathered around the obelisk. There’s a nip in the air and an ominous feeling surrounds the tribe as we line our Rex army up on the obelisk. Tribe Admin A says the situation looks bleak and isn’t hopeful for a successful outcome. Tribe morale isn’t very high so the tribe leader gives us a war speech before placing the remaining artifacts needed to start the fight in the terminal. As the bubble starts to surround our creatures the feeling of hope begins to flood over the tribe as we are all confident after our leaders wonderful speech, but little did we know, things weren’t going to be so easy. As we enter the arena and see the beast flying overhead, we mount our rexes and our tribe leader takes her position on the yuty. The creature flies around for a short while before finally landing and engaging with our creatures. We tear into the Dragon with tooth and claw as our Rexes are full of energy thanks to the Yuty. Little did we know at the time being the ignorant people we are that the dragon had a fire breath attack that dealt percentage based HP. As it flees to the skies once more, we realize our Rexes are already below half health, while the dragon itself is only about 20% down on HP. As we are planning for this unthought circumstance, disaster strikes. Swarms of Dimorphs and Pteras rain from the sky, claiming the lives of 2 of our tribe members in the process. We manage to defend from them as the Dragon lands down upon us and unleashes it’s Fire breath once more. Our rexes begin to fall one by one as we continue to try and salvage our futile attempt at beating this beast. He claims the lives of all but one Rex with which I am mounted on, and the yuty our tribe leader is controlling. Stunned, we resort to working together to try and handle the next swarm of minions the guardian has summoned on us. As we take them down he lands once more, striking a critical final blow in our forces as he wiped the remainder of us off the ARK.. alas, we were utterly defeated, with our creatures gone and little hope that we could be the beast, things didn’t look very hopeful. But we will have our revenge. The tribes will is stronger than anything the ARK can throw at us.

(This was when i was more new to my server)
My friend and i were getting lots of small tames that day. After we tamed a trike we were like,"" I wonder if trikes can break wood?"" So we tested it out on a nearby wood shack. The trike charged right through the wood shack. We had joy for a good minute. Little did we know that there was someone in there and they were a bob of a pretty good tribe.

A little bit later after we tried to run away in the nearby forest, someone used a managarmer to execute the trike.

it was a learning experience.

This Story is from 2017. My friends and I (Group of 5) all decided to download ARK and play through the game for the very first time. We decided on hardcore settings, no tames and 1.5x Creature Damage. We decide to go into Island South Cave. We have assault rifles, chitin armor and 2 people with shields and swords. We manage to make it down to the artifact, but decide to head into the cave further as we wanted the chance at getting some blueprints out of drops. (Little did we know this would spell the end for 3 of our 5 members. We also had hardcore mode enabled, so we would lose everything if we were to die.) We decide to cross the little lake in the cave with the plan of jumping in and swimming to shore. We all jump in and 4 of us make it to the other side of the lake and onto shore before we turn to see one of our tribemates say “help me” as he’s bounced back into the water by a group of piranhas, thus we obtained our first causality of the play through. As we grieve over the loss of our tribemate, we agree we must press onward to not let his sacrifice have been in vain, and that’s when disaster struck once more. A pack of scorpions on 1.5x Damage snuck out from inside the wall of the cave and knocked out one of the vanguard in a single hit, then proceeded to take his life in the process. The tribe was powerless as our only means of shielding was gone, but we managed to fight them off with our guns and a little bit of luck. Thus being down two members of the expedition team, our tribe leader suggests that we turn around and leave. Myself and the other remaining member decide that the only way to honor the fallen is to continue onward, and thus we do just that. I take the lead, as I have the most HP, and equip the shield of my fallen comrade. With shield and sword in hand, I fail to account for the biggest danger of all, Megalania. Failing to look upwards, I’m jumped on without any warning. My tribemates unload their guns into the creature in a desperate attempt to salvage what little bit we can, but unfortunately, the damage had been done. Mega rabies had infected my character, and it was taking my life away at a rapid rate. In a panic, I run towards the safety of my tribemates, failing to realize I harmed the very people I was supposed to protect. The leader and other member now had the disease as well, and as we all rushed past the megalania and for the entrance in a hopes of escape, we lost our tribe leader. Myself and one other left that day, and we never went into a cave on that play through again.

I just remembered this story as one of the friends involved in this passed away last month and it was a happy memory to have found again. RIP

Let's get this weekend started with a special 3x EVO Event that lasts until Tuesday! While you're here, check out some of our favorite community content in the Community Corner this week!




There is an ongoing EVO event that will run until 1 PM Pacific on Tuesday, September 27th. You can find the rates below:

*Note that these bonuses are multiplicative of the game's standard 1x rates.

  • Official Servers: 3x XP, Harvesting, Taming, Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval, and 3x Hexagon Rewards
  • Small Tribe Servers: 5.5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, 5x Breeding (maturation, hatch/gestation), 4x Imprinting, 0.5x Mating Interval, and 4x Hexagon Rewards
  • ARKpocalypse: 6x XP, Harvesting, Taming, Breeding (maturation, hatch/gestation), 4x Imprinting, 0.5x Mating Interval, and 4x Hexagon Rewards
  • Conquest: 6x XP, Harvesting, Taming, Breeding (maturation, hatch/gestation), 4x Imprinting, 0.5x Mating Interval, and 4x Hexagon Rewards

For the duration of this EVO Event, we will be disabling the world buffs from Baby Boon & Maewing Poach on Genesis Part 2 on the Official Network. In the past, we've adjusted for the impact events have had on the rates by tweaking the bonuses that we use during breeding events, however, those tweaks lead to unfavorable circumstances on maps that aren't Genesis Part 2, so during breeding events, we'll be disabling these mission buffs specifically as not to affect the bonuses on other maps.

Tacosaurus#3251
So uhhh... I had never beaten a boss before and the people of the cluster I play on were going for tek cave but needed alpha dragon. So i opted in to do it and... I still to this day havent beaten a boss. The alpha dragon at the very end of the fight decided to aggro onto me, snipe me with a fire ball and killed me.
So yeah, my story of still not beating a boss

My good friend mhix likes to breed his Dino’s and let me get the babies or eggs from them. He did this with his otters several times. Each and every time I get a batch of his babies they die!!! Today I waited 7hours and 30minutes for them to give birth… I was prepared with tons of fish meat cooked and raw, was so excited too. The 7 hour timer I set went off, I quickly finished my meat run and got distracted. In that time of getting distracted I moved my young kittens to a safer spot in my room. Went to the living room to show my mom one of the kittens, we sat there for about 30 minutes when I realized I needed to get the otters. I freaked out and ran to my room quickly grabbed pods and ran to my friends base. I got there lagging and saw the babies heads. I started imprinting them all and led them away from the adults so I could pod them. They all died at the same time! There goes 7 hours of excitement

Community Crunch 331: PAX West Recap, Mod.IO Interview, and EVO Event! https://ark-servers.net/blog/869/community-crunch-331-pax-west-recap-modio-interview-and-evo-event/ https://ark-servers.net/blog/869/community-crunch-331-pax-west-recap-modio-interview-and-evo-event/ Sat, 10 Sep 2022 02:04 CEST



We had a blast at PAX West this year and cherished the opportunity to meet current and future ARK fans 😉. If you were in town, you probably had a chance to check out the life-sized HLN-A and acquire some of the heavily sought-after ARK swag. We've put together a recap of the community live stream and any moments you may have missed during PAX West.




In addition to the photo opp with HLN-A, eager ARK survivors were able to get their hands on the upcoming Ultimate Survivor Edition on Nintendo Switch. The upcoming launch on October 25th will include The island and Scorched Earth at launch, and add the remaining ARK and community content in intervals.


The completely rehauled version will include enhancements and upgrades to bring it into line, visually and functionally, with the experience on Xbox One and PS4!

Find out more about ARK on Switch here![survivetheark.com]




We went live on Friday to share exciting news with the community and tease upcoming content coming to all platforms. new story cutscenes to conclude each ARK map, featuring actors Maddy Madden (The Wheel of Time) and David Tennant (Doctor Who). All of Helena’s and Rockwell’s Dossiers and Explorer Notes will also be voiced by the actors.

Jesse, Jeremy, and Gareth Coker sat down for a lengthy interview about audio design and how it can define game moments. Check out the full interview if you don't want any ARK2 spoilers 😉

See the full VOD here![www.twitch.tv]




During the stream, we revealed the upcoming Carcharodontosaurus dossier and promotional art. It might be a good idea to get to know this fearless predator before it enters a list of ARK's toughest carnivores.

Read the full dossier here![survivetheark.com]




Modding is a large part of ARK and ARK 2 will still be deeply rooted in its mod community. Upgrading to Unreal Engine 5 and partnering with mod.io has allowed us to introduce full mod support for console players!

Joshua Hines, our mod community manager, took some time to speak with mod.io and talk about what these upgrades may mean for ARK 2 and the modding ecosystem at large.

Read the full interview here![blog.mod.io]

I was down deep in the red zone on abberation on my drake looking for the artifact of the stalker cave. Then two reaper queens started to chase me around and chased me right into a purlovia. I got thrown off my drake and the reapers broke some of my hazard gear. Then they focused on my drake and I was able to throw my extra set of hazard gear on, jump back on my drake, leave the red zone and didn’t go back for the rest of the day

It is a sad moment where you lose your first ever important tame that helped you through much. And that happened to me a long time ago, but let me tell you my story.

March 11 2020. - The quarentine just started in my country and I began playing ark just to free up some stress, and I'll never forget that time, Thunderdrum, my first ever trike, she was a level 67 since at the time I didn't know about difficulty level, so, in south zone one there is like a weird mountain and me and Thunderdrum wandered around, gathering berries, and thatch for our base, and then disaster struck, A therizinosaurus which I named Lyssa. We began avoiding her, until raptors attacked, she used the charge but ended up hiting the Theri, then the Raptor pounced on me, I got dismounted and began getting killed, and then, Thunderdrum proceeded to kill all the raptors, then we ganged up on the Theri...but alas, I ws too late. As the arrow of mine barely struck the THeri, Lyssa landed the finishing blow on Thunderdrum, killing her. I was mad, but then I understood that losing your tames is part of the game. And from that moment since, every single female Trike i've had, has been named thunderdrum. And I've killed every therizino I've encountered that has the similar color pallet to Lyssa, and everytime I get a Gravestone engram, I make a memorial for her.

Introducing Carcharodontosaurus https://ark-servers.net/blog/868/introducing-carcharodontosaurus/ https://ark-servers.net/blog/868/introducing-carcharodontosaurus/ Sat, 03 Sep 2022 00:31 CEST


Charcarodontosaurus will make a triumphant entry to ARK with a noteworthy set of abilities that puts it in competition with ARK's most feared carnivores!  With a notable taste for blood, Charcarodontosaurus will become more frenzied as it gets its fill.



Common Name: Carcharodontosaurus
Species: Carcharodontosaurus medicupestis
Time: Late Cretaceous
Diet: Carnivore
Temperament: Aggressive


I feel lucky to have crossed paths with Carcharodontosaurus medicupestis and lived to tell the tale. Though I’m not sure if this predator grows bigger than a Giganotosaurus, I hope never to find out. Just one of these bruisers held its own against an army of us, and that encounter cost us dearly.
 
Carcharodontosaurus can sweep aside attackers with its tail, but it’s the other end you’ll really want to avoid. It has teeth like steak knives, set in jaws strong enough to shred most prey. Even a near-miss will carve you up, but good.
 
Like its namesake the great white shark, Carcharodontosaurus gets more dangerous once it tastes blood. Each kill seems to give these monsters a rush and drive it into a berserker frenzy.
 

Anyone that manages to tame a Carcharodontosaurus will gain a new way to rally their tribe for battle. There’s something about this monster’s roar that drives others to fight — a war cry for Hell’s own army.
 
The more tactical tribes will let their Carcharodontosaurus tear through the mid-sized creatures in their enemy’s ranks, thereby building up its bloodrage to take on the largest threats. Talk about shock and awe!

Carcharodontosaurus will make its way onto the ARKs later this year!]]>

Greetings Survivors and welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!

The ARK team and your cheery robot-AI guide, HLN-A, will be at PAX West ARK Booth #325 (Main Floor - Level 4) from September 2nd through September 5th! While #PAXRex and #PAXRaptor hibernate, we're bringing a well-known companion to help us navigate the PAX event floor! A real life-sized version of HLN-A, complete with an incredible holographic display-face, will be in attendance to interact directly with ARK survivors – so whatever burning questions or comments you’ve always wanted to ask her, this is your chance!

Also, survivors will get their first chance to play ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition on Nintendo Switch, developed by Grove Street Games. This completely rehauled version of ARK will include enhancements and upgrades to bring it into line, visually and functionally, with the experience on Xbox One and PS4 – ultimately including all of its Expansion Packs, starting with Scorched Earth at PAX – and launching with a new game mode featuring our loving AI-companion HLN-A as they players through ARK in a low-pressure, kid-friendly, dino-fact-filled adventure in a special mode called "ARK: Dinosaur Discovery"!

If you're planning on attending, don't miss out on a chance to grab some exclusive ARK giveaways and get a firsthand demo of ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition on Nintendo Switch!



This month’s Wildcard cause was chosen in honor of members of our community who have been impacted by cancer. Many of our players are young adults - we're passionate about giving back to our community and we’ve opted to support a charity that focuses on that age group.

Today cancer is the leading terminal disease amongst 20 to 39 year-olds in the United States.

Despite advances in early detection, treatment, and prevention, there’s been no improvement within the last 30 years in survival rates for this particular age group — and in fact, the gap between the survival rates of young adults and those of cancer patients in other age groups is widening.

We believe technology and entertainment can help to bring people together and that gaming can be advantageous in terms of recovery and in coping during treatment:

Studies have also been conducted and show patient empowerment has been increased with the use of video games (Caldwell, et al 2013) Govender et al (2015) also found these benefits with cancer patients in particular, The researchers go to state “Empowerment interventions may enhance patients’ internal locus of control, resilience, coping skills, and self-management of symptoms related to disease and therapy.”

Cancer patients can commonly suffer with a phenomena known as “chemo brain”, where cognitive functioning is impacted (Simó, Rifà-Ros, Rodriguez-Fornells, & Bruna, 2013) video games have been proven to increase working memory, problem solving, spatial awareness and eye hand coordination and executive control functions (Hall et al, 2012; Shin, et al 2015, Adachi, & Willoughby, 2013).

With respect to our players battling cancer, we’ve donated to the Ulman Foundation, a charity that creates a community of support for young adults and their loved ones.

Was doing a red drop on Extinction. Hit E. Fell off giga. Chased giga around amid wyverns and enraged triceratops. Latter killed me. Giga ate the rest. Got giga. Went to public TP. Person who built it didn't fill in the gap underneath. Got trapped. Died again. Got my stuff back again. Danced with my corpse because this time there was a corpse left to dance with.

Just another day, really.

A very long time ago when I was an ark noob on the island, I had a phiomia I kept in a pen made of fences and let it wander around. One day I saw it had escaped and didn’t care too much since I could always just tame another phiomia. Fast forward a couple days and it’s the middle of the night, I go towards the woods of my base to harvest a bit of wood for my campfires and get knocked out by a bunch of troodons. But to my surprise, my phiomia comes running over to help me, draws the aggro of the troodons and fights them. She saved my life but died at the cost of it. Rest In Peace Princess Phiomia

Community Crunch 327: EVO Event, A Tribute to Uri, and More! https://ark-servers.net/blog/864/community-crunch-327-evo-event-a-tribute-to-uri-and-more/ https://ark-servers.net/blog/864/community-crunch-327-evo-event-a-tribute-to-uri-and-more/ Sat, 06 Aug 2022 02:47 CEST
Greetings Survivors!

Recently the ARK PvP Community suffered the loss of a much-loved member, Uriel. He was a uniting force amid a varied group of players and multiple tribes. Uri endeared himself to everyone irrespective of their affiliation in PvP due to his sweet and funny nature along with being known for his amusing dances on stream.

Uri was someone who didn't allow his own adversities in life to dim the good-natured light he shone. We will all feel the absence of his warmth greatly.

We’d like to honor Uri, his tribemates, and his friends by sharing the absolutely heartwarming outpouring of love for him that was shown when an unprecedented number of our Official PvP players came together to memorialize him with in-game builds.

We have collated pics of players’ memorial builds to share with the community. A nod to Skittle for traveling to servers to take high-quality screenshots for mourning players.

A message for Uri from his tribemates and friends:
It is never easy to say goodbye to anyone we love, and it has been especially hard to accept the loss of our dearest friend, Uri. He reached out and touched the hearts of many around the world, whether it was being a tribe member, an entertainer through his streams, or an amazing friend. No matter what he was battling he remained selfless and put others' happiness before his own. It is rare to meet people like that, especially on the internet. Going forward, we have been thinking about what Uri would want and that would be to be happy, to strive for greatness, and to dance our way through the hard times. We will forever cherish the memories we’ve shared and even though he is not with us, he will always be in our hearts. We love you Uri, that sky border doesn’t exist anymore so fly high, king.

With respect for a lovely member of our community who has now ascended. RIP Uri ❤️

Be happy - Uriel

That moment you tame your first raptor and while sending it out to kill a dodo it hits a trike and you whistle passive by accident and by the time you whistle aggressive it kills your raptor and comes for you and so you need to get your group of dinos to kill it and go tame a new raptor

The deep abyss is the most haunting place on Ark. I’ve recently unlocked tek, and needed to grab some materials, which many happened to be underwater. Fjordors ocean isn’t very large, it’s relatively shallow most of the time with frequent caves. However, on the western side, I encountered a cave while exploring and I found the deep abyss. An area of nothing but freezing cold water, and dangerous creatures. However, those are not the scariest parts of the area, it’s the emptiness. It was just me, my shadowmane, and sound of my oxygen tank and breathing. I entered and saw, a blinding sight of blue nothingness. Sure there were alpha creatures in there, but they never scared me, I had strong mounts I could throw out to protect me, the atmosphere was what scared me. A massive cove of water, occasionally interrupted by cracks in floor, that give off radiation. A massive skeleton lays for what seems an infinite length around the abyss, is what sealed the deal. As soon as I got what I needed, I left. Never would I think ark triggers this sense of terror

Community Crunch 324: Summer EVO Event Extended, Community Corner, and More! https://ark-servers.net/blog/861/community-crunch-324-summer-evo-event-extended-community-corner-and-more/ https://ark-servers.net/blog/861/community-crunch-324-summer-evo-event-extended-community-corner-and-more/ Sat, 16 Jul 2022 01:00 CEST

Greetings Survivors!

Don't be hasty to pack away your swimming trunks! The Summer EVO Event has been extended until 1pm Pacific, on July 26th, so make the most of the extra time to tame those colourful creatures with increased rates, along with a community favourite; breeding boosts!

And as always, we conclude the Community Crunch this week with another Community Corner, showcasing some amazingly talented creators from the ARK community.




The Summer EVO Event has been extended until 1pm Pacific, on July 26th. You can find the rates below:

*Note that these bonuses are multiplicative of the game's standard 1x rates.
  • Official Servers: 3x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus
  • Small Tribe Servers: 4.5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, 4x Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus
  • ARKpocalypse: 5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus
  • Conquest: 5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus
For the duration of The Summer EVO Event, we will be disabling the world buffs from Baby Boon & Maewing Poach on Genesis Part 2 on the Official Network. In the past, we've adjusted for the impact events have had on the rates by tweaking the bonuses that we use during breeding events, however, those tweaks lead to unfavorable circumstances on maps that aren't Genesis Part 2, so during breeding events, we'll be disabling these mission buffs specifically as not to affect the bonuses on other maps.

Khal Alastor -Dusk-#8673
I remember joining a friend's server for the first time, they had dragon mods and a cool map to look at so they invited me to check it out. I spawned in and immediately got harassed by a pegomastix as I was trying to gather resources... I punched this pego in the face and it had tamed instantly! I stood there shocked at what had just happened while my friends were laughing so hard about it all... To this day we all laugh about it still! Funny thing is... Not long after.. I did it again! Who knew punching in the face would give you a friend or two
StylishGoldFish#5205
so im level 50 right, so I was exploring around my base with my ptera and found a male 145 rex terrorizing the local herbivores around 300-500 meters away from my base, so i was worried that if it continues it would stumble its way to my base so I took 2 cross bows and 130 tranq arrows and set out to tame the mf before it shits on me and my base or at least lead it farther away

well I was prepared to die, but uhhhh turns out the rex fell unconsious and Im taming it up rn

now wth am I supposed to do with this thing, I cant even ride it till level 72 😭😭

Greetings Survivors!

With the Studio’s focus on the development of ARK 2 and the recent launch of Fjordur, the team has been very focused on making that as awesome as we possibly can. Unfortunately, that means we haven’t been able to do a traditional Summer Bash event. We really appreciate all the support you’ve shown us over the years, and the heights that have been reached with our new arrivals so let’s celebrate summer with a special Summer Evo Event!

Including all of your loved past Summer Bash colors plus 7 hand-picked new ones with a tropical vibe. Throw in special 3x rates on everything including breeding and the ability to get your hands on past Summer Bash items via the Hex store and we think we have a fun little celebration!

We know you folks enjoy your event cosmetics so as has been our trend during this last year of events on ARK 1, we will continue to keep the associated cosmetics in the Hexagon Exchange once each event ends.

So break out your shades and catch some rays in the 2022 Summer EVO event! Running from July 1st 1PM Pacific to July 15th 1PM Pacific.




The Summer EVO event will run from July 1st 1PM Pacific to July 15th 1PM Pacific.


Note that single-player and non-dedicated servers will need to manually enable the event in Advanced settings:

  • Active Event: summer
For unofficial servers the required launch parameter is:
  • -activeevent=summer


For the duration of The Summer Evo Event, we will be disabling the world buffs from Baby Boon & Maewing Poach on Genesis Part 2 on the Official Network. In the past, we've adjusted for the impact events have had on the rates by tweaking the bonuses that we use during the holidays, however, those tweaks lead to unfavorable circumstances on maps that aren't Genesis Part 2, so going forward during breeding events, we'll be disabling these mission buffs specifically as not to affect the bonuses on other maps

*Note that these bonuses are multiplicative of the game's standard 1x rates.
  • Official Servers: 3x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus
  • Small Tribe Servers: 4.5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, 4x Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus
  • ARKPocalypse: 5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus
  • Conquest: 5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation), 0.5x Mating Interval, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus


  • Emotes and skins from previous Summer Bash events are already available on all platforms via the HLN-A store on Genesis 1 and 2.

Woof 2.0#4952
My first tame was a dilo, I got a pack of 8 of them and then I thought "wow this army is so strong, it kills all raptors and enemies at the beach"... So I approached the Therizinosaurus and basically said "alright get him boys" and uh, let's just say after I had no more dilos AND I died afterwards. From that moment, I noticed that thing is no joke in the early game.

Poi#6351
I wanted to get my first artifact ever, So I went searching for a thyla (I’m on the island), I couldn’t find s***. So I went looking for a baryonyx, I found a level 115 and tamed that guy right up. I got some meat for him, and cryppoded him. I decided to go to the southern cave, so I did and I was confident as hell going in there. So I went in there, I thought that there would be way less creepy crawlers in the my bary was half health, then it was 1/4 health, then it had 200 hp, then it died. I ran into the artifact room. I tried to exit but an arthropela came up and I had 15 hp. I set up some sleeping bags In the artifact room, and ran out of the cave, and someway somehow, I made it out with the artifact, but no baryonyx.
Lesson learned: bring med brews, level up your caving Dino before going caving, and tame a thyla.

Greetings Survivors, and welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!



We'd like to take a brief moment and thank the ARK community, old and new survivors, for helping us reach a monumental milestone. This past weekend we reached a record-breaking 248K CCU (concurrent players) on Steam! You continue to blow us away with your never-ending passion and support. We are extremely humbled, gracious, and energized as we embark on creating the ultimate primal survival experience.

In addition to an EVO event and a look at some amazing community content, here are a few reminders to keep on your radar:


On Sunday at 10am Pacific, Conquest will introduce new maps to its currently active season.

Map Rollout Plan
  • 6/26/22 - The Island, Scorched Earth, The Center
  • 7/10/22 - Ragnarok, Aberration, Valguerro
  • 7/24/22 - Lost Island, Crystal Isles

Find out more information about conquest here[survivetheark.com], and be sure to stop by the Conquest Discord[discord.gg] to get into direct contact with the Enforcement team for Conquest.


In April this year we moved the Official ARK wiki to its new home and partner, ark.wiki.gg!

Moving the ARK wiki has provided a more stable and streamlined experience for the ARK community to build its future wiki roots on. Since the move to wiki.gg the wiki team has been working hard to improve the way information can be displayed and accessed, and one of these projects is the improved interactive resource, exploration, and spawn maps!



  • Update Your Links: Remember to help those who forget the new Official ARK Wiki home.
  • Become an Editor: Help improve the wiki! Wiki’s are most successful when many community members contribute content and validate information.
  • Wikis are Worldwide: ARK players come from all around the world! We encourage non-English speakers to help make the ARK Wiki an even more valuable resource by contributing to the specific language wikis!
  • Share Your Feedback: As always, we want to hear your thoughts on the Wiki transition. Anything you want to see the wiki add in the future?

A-10 Thunderbolt II “Warthog”#6542
2017. Bought the game for the first time. Heard good things about it. It looked like a pretty cool game. I spawn in, and I see what looks like a piece of driftwood. I walk over, and realize its a creature. I approach it thinking “maybe it’s friendly?” Nope. It was a sarco. It chases me and kills me. That was my first death in ark.

Superiority Complex#9163
Okay, what you are about to read is disturbing and may cause an extreme fear of Therizinosaurus.

I'm playing a fjordur, day 100 or so. I'm level 68 and tired of seeing everyone walk around with their rex and cool creatures. Like any other person I decide to step up my game so I can be a respected tribe. Night comes around I have the bright idea to collect narcoberries on my level 100 or so para named Cherry. It's almost pitch black. Out of nowhere I hear the battle music kick in. Pulling out my torch I see a f****** Therizinosaurus.

Now I had 2 options- run to base or fight

I run because there is no way my Para is gonna f*** with a Therizinosaurus and survive.

I get within eyesight of my base when Cherry dies. It was devastating but I run without looking back, maybe Cherry's corspe can distract the Therizinosaurus just long enough for me to make it to my base. My base is made of wood. It is built on the side of a cliff with the edge of the house sticking off slightly. The opposite side, not facing off the cliff is guarded by 5 wooden gates.

Anyway I run and barely shut the gate door before the Therizinosaurus reaches me.

It starts to break the gate. Panicking I run up to the top of my base where I keep Bloodfire, my pterodactyl. Before I can get on, the Therizinosaurus hits me, sending me off the cliff to my death. I wait abit and respawn at my base. The Therizinosaurus is gone. I walk down the cliff and get my stuff then make my way back up and find Cherry's remains. I take the narcoberiies and saddle. Once returning to my base I examine the damage. One gate destroyed. Not to bad. Some time has passed now, I am in my base crafting tranqs and gates when I hear the sound. the Therizinosaurus attacking my base again, this time my living complex. Frantically try to dash upstairs to my ride, blood fire, goes crazy and fly away. My base is pretty much destroyed and I am brutally slashed to death. My bed is on cool down and I can do nothing.

Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!

As we all catch our breath from the Fjordur launch and all the ARK news this week, we can't help to be appreciative and humbled by the ARK community helping us reach a new record-breaking CCU high! We're blown away by the support and passion of the community!

This past week has been full of ARK news, from ARK 2 to the ARK: The Animated TV Series, there has been a plethora of content and information to share with the hungry ARK community.




Amongst upcoming ARK content, Fjordur was released on June 12th and is available on all platforms. Find out more about Fjordur and its native inhabitants here:


In terms of upcoming content, ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition is right around the corner! The Grove Street Games team is targeting a September release and a presentation at PAX West. Find out more information and see a demo of an early dev build here:
https://twitter.com/survivetheark/status/1536464515583266816


The community has been waiting for more information on ARK: The Animated TV Series, and you were treated this week with new images of the upcoming cast. Jeremy recently shared one of Meiyin's theme songs, completed by Gareth Coker, on Twitter:
https://twitter.com/jeremystieglitz/status/1537723537615732736


If you're reading this there's probably a good chance you already own ARK on Steam but do all of your friends? Don't miss out on this unforgettable deal! You only have until Sunday at 10AM Pacific!
https://store.steampowered.com/app/346110/ARK_Survival_Evolved/


Due to a configuration error to Fjordur SmallTribes servers at launch, some tribes were able to exceed the maximum number of players (6) that are allowed in a tribe. The configuration error has since been fixed. The enforcement team will begin taking action on tribes that exceed the maximum number of players (6) on Tuesday. Please plan accordingly!


If you've missed any of the other news, be sure to check out our lengthy post detailing plans for ARK and ARK 2:

Okay guys, this story is fatal. Big scared big scared I was. I went on fjdour pve servers. I was the first one there so I had a head start. But I wanted something that I saw there from story mode. 3 castles, even if I had one of them I would of felt accomplished. Got loads of progress done. 30 mins later I got a pt and pt saddle. Went to the pathway to claim the castle (me thinking that all survivers we're noobs and got no lvls on them, I see them all running to the pathways so fast. It was like a pvz moment when u had to defend the house with plants. But it was over and I couldn't do nothing. Thier movement speed was bonkers running at that hill. I thought I had a headstart but when I had already got there. I saw a guy with noodle arms and Popeye forearms. Breaking wood. Me and him were versing while other people was claiming the hill tops close to the castle. The speed runner managed to win me and I had black eyes while he was typing victory and greed in chat. This is where I start downfalling. My pt that I left was on passive so it couldn't defend me. A saber tooth went in the castle killed my pt then me even if I tried to escape. 2 hours of trying to get to a castle location and back up my feet I end up going to the red wood castle to see that claimed. The winter castle. The mountain castle. Any pre built place, you name it and I went there. Everything got claimed like it was a free tag sale on toys r us. I was devistated. Everything got taken'd away from me and I will never forget that moment.

Redefining the Survival Genre with ARK 2 and an Update from our Studio Founders https://ark-servers.net/blog/856/redefining-the-survival-genre-with-ark-2-and-an-update-from-our-studio-founders/ https://ark-servers.net/blog/856/redefining-the-survival-genre-with-ark-2-and-an-update-from-our-studio-founders/ Sun, 12 Jun 2022 21:45 CEST
We have so much on the horizon for the ARK universe and we don’t want to keep our community waiting any longer so let’s skip the preamble and jump right in!




We are currently working on our expansive sequel with all our might! But we have postponed the release date to 2023 in order to create an adventure that will be unforgettable for everyone, respectful of our team’s health, realize the potential of upgrading to Unreal 5, and to introduce revolutionary full mod support for console players! ARK 2 will launch in 2023, simultaneously on Steam Early Access and as a console launch exclusive for Xbox Series X|S and with Xbox and PC Game Pass on Game Preview.

We believe that ARK 2 will be the ultimate primal survival experience and want to devote the resources needed to bring that to fruition. When you finally take your first steps onto the beautiful and dangerous new world of Arat in 2023, we intend that it’ll have been worth the time to get there.

You can now wishlist ARK 2 on Steam here!




Suddenly awakened on a strange primal world filled with dinosaurs and humans struggling for dominance; you must piece together the history of how you arrived there, team-up with legendary heroes, and confront powerful dark forces seeking to control the fate of all life. Saddle up, and join the definitive next-generation survival experience with ARK 2!

Every aspect of the ARK series has been rethought and redesigned in this sequel. Here's a sampling of the new features that ARK 2 will contain upon its initial Early Access and Game Preview release:


Starring Vin Diesel ("Fast Franchise") as legendary ARK hero Santiago, experience an epoch-spanning adventure as he seeks to protect his daughter Meeka -- voiced by Auli'i Cravalho ("Moana") -- from the ghosts of the ancient past and visions of a new future.




Fully stackable, user-created Mods for new creatures, items, gameplay features, and maps are now distributed across all platforms -- including onto Xbox -- and support for modded servers enabled through official mod support by mod.io!

Here’s a little bit more information about this new technology partnership:

mod.io is a cross-platform UGC solution, supporting 11 game systems and stores. By partnering with mod.io, we are connecting ARK 2 with a complete ecosystem in which mods can exist, be presented, and accessed in-game. We’re excited to see our vision for Mods powered by proven tech, and deliver the best possible experience for players, everywhere they can play ARK 2.


Advanced character traversal mechanics like mantling, free-climbing, parkour, sliding, and swinging!


Target-lock, blocks, dodges, combos, staggers, special attacks, emphasizing player-skill-based action.


Explore a mysterious, chaotic world where native flora and fauna are being overrun by invasive primeval creatures from an extinct Earth!




Construct your weapons and tools from a range of distinct modules to customize their look and functionality -- millions of possible combinations enable you to craft your own unique gear! The specific materials you choose will further affect the appearance of your items, with multiple options of resources found in unique regions of the world.


Natural and unnatural occurrences are always happening across the game world, independent of your presence! Your choices in deciding whether to interact with these events will yield rewards or challenges.


Hostile 'Aratai' hunt & attack you riding their own tamed creatures, as they seek to drive human interlopers from their world.


Instanced rendering and network-streaming enable much higher client and server performance for large, player-built structures, and a longer draw distance! Survivors can set up and save their own preferred building templates, share them, and place prospective template layouts in the world to then build them out as a team.


No omnipresent radar -- animals now track and hunt by sight, sound, and smell! Hide from predators with visual camouflage and environmental obstructions, and learn to mask your scent! Dynamic pathfinding enables creatures to intelligently maneuver around obstacles and player-built structures.




Gain both experience points from gameplay, and knowledge points by accomplishing key objectives and overcoming unique challenges, to progress along a massive skill tree filled with new active abilities, perks, and passive benefits.


See foliage react convincingly to passing wildlife, water flow downstream around obstacles, volumetric stormclouds, localized weather systems, smoke and particles affected by physical forces, and much more! Fundamental advancement of lighting systems enables a more photorealistic day-night cycle, generating real-time ambient lighting & shadows within both natural and player-constructed environments!






As we journey into the next evolution of ARK, Jesse and Jeremy reflected on the time they’ve spent creating ARK and wanted to include a personal message about ARK 2 to the community.


The future of survival games begins with ARK 2
When we first released ARK: Survival Evolved in 2015, we had no idea how big it would eventually become. It was beyond our wildest expectations that 7 years later we’d be developing an eons-spanning narrative across multiple games, a TV series, and starring none other than Vin Diesel as key ARK hero Santiago. And yet here we are, together with our wonderful players who have stuck with the ARK universe through thick (RAGNAROK!!) and thin (FLYER NERF??), now having a canvas far bigger than ever before.

That’s what ARK 2 is – the biggest canvas ever for primal survival experiences, a next-generation framework to play out your own survival stories.

ARK 2’s main narrative tells the story of a father and a daughter (“Meeka” played by Auli'i Cravalho!), of betrayal & broken promises, and the strength of the family bond – and of course, it’s a story of badass giant dinosaurs. But even more importantly, this is about players’ own stories – like any good persistent-world online survival game, ‘Survivors’ in ARK 2 each have their own unique path through the game, as they form their own tribe, make their own friends, and attempt to build their own creature-aided civilization.

With ARK 2, we’re seeking not only to enhance the game’s narrative and world-building, but also retouch and improve on all aspects of what constitutes an ARK game.

Foremost among these redesigns are the core player mechanics. In the sequel, which is third-person-only, controls and movement for both players and creatures have been completely redesigned. Taking inspiration from game systems like Assassin’s Creed’s automatic parkour and Breath of the Wild’s climbing, player characters can now clamber over the environment in a more realistic and freeform manner. With a focus on primitive-era combat (Santiago and Tek have a ‘complicated’ relationship…), ARK 2 draws heavily from Souls-like action for its human-scale combat: an emphasis on dodges, blocks, light and heavy attacks, combos, and player-reflex skill – a rarity for the PvP survival genre. For creature-scale combat, suffice it to say for now that when you attack something with your T-Rex in ARK 2, the results are visceral: the animation of the attack actually hard-impacts on the target (not “passing through” it), the victim’s flesh is torn, and the target physically reacts at that location to the hit – all to convey the feeling of the raw power of such a ferocious creature!

Another area that we’re particularly excited about is the World Event system. Rather than simply having a more-or-less static environment with easily predictable or repetitive occurrences ala ARK 1, the new World Event system is designed to ensure that unique things are always happening around the world, whether you are there or not. Events include procedurally-dynamic scenarios like watering hole gatherings, wounded creatures, tracking the signs of advanced prey, stampedes, herds, defending endangered creatures to earn their trust, finding dens of parent creatures and their young, and more. Whether you choose to engage with these events is up to you, and each can yield unique rewards and challenges.

There are too many other areas of fundamental changes in ARK 2, whether it’s the new opposing-force ‘Aratai’ who have their own tames, the new Creature Management & proper World Map systems, the advanced component-based item crafting that enables players to choose exactly what their gear looks and functions like from millions of potential combinations, or the revamped build system which provides innumerable more building options and enables saving & sharing of build templates – or, or…well, there’s just too much to go over here! You’ll get your first preview of the ARK 2 gameplay down the road, and we think you’ll like what you see.

Finally, saving perhaps the best for last, ARK 2 adds a revolutionary new feature for console players: fully stackable, user-created mods, including on unofficial servers, for the Xbox version of the game enabled through official mod support by mod.io! This means that players who create mods using the PC version will be able to upload them to the cloud and make them available for all console players to enjoy as well. With this, as we’ve seen with ARK 1 on PC, everything in the game can effectively be changed, improved, and redesigned: new creatures, new game types, new maps, new weapons & items, and mechanics (yes modders can re-add First Person mode 😉 ).

With the power of Unreal Engine 5, the only limit will be the imagination of the content creators themselves. We’re super stoked to witness the mind-blowing additions that players will no doubt create in their mods and maps – and we believe that having all such user generated content playable on console in ARK 2, with complete cross-platform server integration, is going to change the nature of the genre forever.

Put simply: with ARK 2, our goal is to make the game that we all wanted ARK 1 to be – now that we’ve had the time, resources, and knowledge to do it right. So in 2023 on Xbox & PC Game Pass, we’ll look forward to seeing you all in this new world of primeval creatures and legendary heroes. Just keep an eye out for Vin – he likes to play on his Series X more than you might expect, and his skill at wrangling a Giga is unequaled…

Yours truly,
Jeremy Stieglitz, Jesse Rapczak and the Wildcard team.


ARK’s development has always benefited from external teams providing their expertise for ARK’s myriad of content and game systems. Whether it be Instinct Games, Efecto Studios, or another developer that’s partnered with us during the creation of ARK: Survival Evolved, we’ve always leveraged the amazing talent from external studios to create the best version of ARK for our fans.
In that spirit, we’re partnering with Grove Street Games to co-develop ARK 2 and rewrite the ARK Nintendo Switch code with a full revamp of gameplay functionality, graphics, and optimization. Thomas Williamson, the Director of Grove Street, will be Development Director and Technical Director of ARK 2 with parts of the Grove Street Games team also joining ARK 2’s production in a development partnership.

Jeremy and Jesse will balance their time between games and the expansion of the ARK franchise across multiple platforms and formats, with Jeremy focusing his creative efforts on the TV series and other initiatives, whilst continuing to serve as Executive Producer of ARK 2. Jesse will continue as Creative Director of ARK 2 and co-creator of the TV series.

We are beyond-thrilled that Thomas and the incredibly talented team at Grove Street Games have opted to go all-in on partnering up to build the next iterations of the ARK franchise. By combining Grove Street's amazing capabilities with Studio Wildcard, we’re confident ARK 2 is going to be a mind-blowing experience!



We know many of you have also been waiting expectantly for news on the Animated Series, and we’re so looking forward to being able to share more with everyone about it.

The Series now has fourteen 30-minute episodes in post-production! To celebrate this milestone, we have released the first poster images of key characters from the show, available here[drive.google.com].



ARK: The Animated Series chronicles the story of a mysterious primeval land populated by dinosaurs and other extinct creatures, where people from throughout human history have been resurrected. When 21st century Australian paleontologist Helena Walker awakes on the ARK after tragedy, she must learn to survive and find new allies, or die again at the hands of ruthless warlords -- all while trying to uncover the true nature of their strange new world.

Jay Oliva (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox) has taken on the role of Executive Producer, Director, and Co-Showrunner, alongside ARK franchise creators Jeremy Stieglitz and Jesse Rapczak, with the series being produced at Glendale-based Lex+Otis animation studio. Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Reloaded) and Dee Bradley Baker (Star Wars: The Bad Batch) have also joined the series’ talented cast.

The show features an extraordinary voice cast, including Gerard Butler (300), Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All At Once), Madeleine Madden (The Wheel of Time), Devery Jacobs (American Gods), Deborah Mailman (Total Control), Zahn McClarnon (Doctor Sleep), Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange), Elliot Page (The Umbrella Academy), Ragga Ragnars (Vikings), David Tennant (Good Omens), Alan Tudyk (Rogue One), Karl Urban (The Boys), Jeffrey Wright (Westworld), Ron Yuan (Mulan), with Russell Crowe (Gladiator) and Vin Diesel reprising his role as franchise hero, Santiago.

We look forward to sharing more news soon!




In April we announced that Nintendo Switch would be receiving a completely rehauled version of ARK that will include enhancements and upgrades to bring it into line, visually and functionally, with the experience on Xbox One and PS4.
Today, we’re happy to share an update on the progress and more information on ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition!

ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition will introduce new story cutscenes to conclude each ARK map, featuring actors Maddy Madden (The Wheel of Time) and David Tennant (Doctor Who) reprising their respective roles as Helena Walker and Sir Edmund Rockwell. All of Helena’s and Rockwell’s Dossiers and Explorer Notes will also be voiced by the actors, as will survivors’ epic confrontation versus Rockwell on ARK Aberration. Madden will also voice the cheery robot-AI guide HLN-A in the "Young Explorer's Mode" that will lead players through ARK in a low-pressure, kid-friendly, dino-fact-filled adventure.

We’re happy to show you what to expect in September, so Tune in at 1:30pm Pacific Monday, June 13, to /twitchgaming livestream to see the first gameplay of ARK: Ultimate Survivor Edition on Switch.

Be sure to check out our previous post[survivetheark.com] for more details on the upcoming update.

We are absolutely ecstatic about Fjordur launching in less than 2 days!! To help everyone get prepared for the occasion we're spending some time recapping the details of the newest *free* DLC map, including a new look at Fenrir, a mysterious wolf-like creature that's native to Fjordur!




On June 12th at 10:00 AM PDT, get ready to traverse a fantastical multi-layered wonderland with a frosty Nordic theme! We've put together all the details that will prepare you for the launch of the free DLC map, Fjordur!

  • All Platforms: June 12th, 2022 10:00AM PDT (20:00 UTC)

  • PC / EGS: ~20GB
  • XBOX: ~40GB
  • PS4: TBD

  • Character Upload/Download is enabled
  • Item/Dino Upload is enabled
  • Item/Dino Download is disabled


  • Please ensure to uninstall the Fjordur mod from the Steam Workshop prior to downloading Fjordur (if you already have the mod installed)

  • Map Name: Fjordur
  • Please ensure to wipe any servers that were previously hosting the Fjordur map as it has undergone significant changes that will impact the world.






Much of what is known of Fenrir comes from tales passed down from previous Survivors but this elusive creature has managed to avoid being documented in the form of a dossier. What we do know is: Fenrir does not respond to conventional taming methods. If you are able to capture and ride Fenrir, you'll be able to freeze your enemies in their steps.




Andrewsarchus makes its way to Fjordur packing an arsenal of utility!  Andrewsarchus may seem sluggish while foraging for a meal, but they can move unexpectedly fast when provoked. Once tamed, its saddle will allow you to mount a minigun to the back of it!

As you might imagine, Desmodus prefers to hang out in dark places, waiting for its unsuspecting prey!  If you're lucky enough to tame one,  you can send Desmodus to snatch up small prey or saddle up and vanish into the darkness.

Click to view the dossier for Desmodus[drive.google.com]




Looking to dive right into the action, Fjordhawk can forge close bonds with humans as wholeheartedly as any canine or primate.  A tamed Fjordhawk is a surprisingly playful companion that is very capable of fetching targets that you point out. A well-trained Fjordhawk can locate injured prey and communicate its find to you.

Acting as a functional weapon skin for the TEK sword, Mjolnir packs its own special powers and empowers Survivors with supernatural might. Devastate your foes with shocking ease as you exercise control over the element of lightning. However, not every survivor will pass the test and be considered worthy to obtain the mighty Mjolnir. Will you be up to the challenge?




The launch of Fjordur also marks a new season of Conquest PvP. Check out the updates below before hopping into the new season on June 12th at 10AM Pacific!


  • 6/26/22 - The Island, Scorched Earth, The Center

K O K U S H I B O U🌙#5261
I bought psn to buy ark back in 2020. My lil bro underestimated the game bc I played before on mobile, but once when I woke up on the beaches of the island for the 1st time on ps4, my bro was shocked, the graphic was much better than mobile one, atleast more FPS than mobile and then my brother wanted to play splitscreen with me. I answered "yes" and we started going into the journey of the island for the 1st time. Both had to get used with the settings but i got used quicker, cause I played more than him. We together struggled alot gaining the artifacts. We collected them all 3 times. A challenge was for us the taming methods too and the difficulties of certain biomes. We didn't know alot about the resistance but my bro put most of his levels on health and died out often in the ice caves and lava cave from taking the artifacts. For us, was the mutation system also complicated but we didn't know anything, and bred random rexes to built the entire small island(Southern islets) full of rexes. I went alone taming two yuties bc yuties were my fav back then with their buff and roar. We were sweating when we tried broodmother(gamma) but...we won the fight easily and I was dumb and said"we gotta the guardians 3 times to gain all the tek gear" and we did that sadly. But we gained alot of element, extreme resource grinding and finally building the replicator with tek armor. My brother loved flying around or running on the water like a shinobi from naruto. We've been ready to face the gamma overseer. 6 rexes out of 25 fell in the lava. 2 sacrificed themselves against the terrifying giga. We beat up the overseer with strategy. One shoots off the drones, the other buffs the dinos. We finally ascended. We played ofc aberration too, it was very new for us the whole mechanic but...he refused when I asked him if we will fight rockwell. Today, he seems to play other games, and only playing fibercraft and generally on the game very rare..

Every year, during the month of June, the LGBTQ+ community celebrates Pride Month in a number of different ways. Across the globe, various events are held as a way of recognising the influence LGBTQ+ people have had around the world and the struggles faced. Why was June chosen? Because it is when the Stonewall Riots took place, way back in 1969. Pride Month is important because it marks the start of change within the LGBTQ+ community, along with wider societal implications.

Studio Wildcard stands in support of the LGBTQ+ community and we would like to make an addition to the ARK: Survival Evolved Official Discord with inclusion of an opt-in role for our LGBTQ+ community members and allies.

Join the Discord[discord.com]

We continue to work towards creating an ARK community where all LGBTQ+ people are included, where everyone is free to play as their authentic selves and enjoy a space that supports self-expression. It is more important than ever to recognize that systems of inequity based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, disability, and other forms of discrimination intersect and ultimately affect us all.

We also support organizations that are driving change for issues that impact LGBTQ+ communities and, as such, we have made a donation to the Ali Forney Centre.Their mission is to protect LGBTQ+ youths from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently. AFC’s Founder, Carl Siciliano was named a White House Champion of Change by Barack Obama.

You can learn more about them at https://www.aliforneycenter.org/ Please consider making a contribution to their efforts if you are able. You can also show them support by following them on Twitter

We hope you enjoy your fancy new Unicorn Pride role and the rainbow-themed dino color event we kicked off with our 7th Birthday! We look forward to continuing to celebrate Pride Month with the wonderful ARK community, and more cultural, environmental and social awareness celebrations in the months ahead!



🎉Happy 7 years of ARK! We are so grateful for our amazing community and all of your support. Looking forward to what the coming years hold in store!
🎉Help us celebrate with a hand-picked rainbow-colored event featuring a bunch of colors loved by you & 2x on all rates!

This event ends on Monday, June 6th.

When ark was still fairly new me and my mom made a world and since we had just got the game we knew nothing about the game. So me and my mom made a thatch hut and a campfire then went out and tamed a LOT of dodos. We didnt know what tribes were so we werent in a tribe. Then I hit her character one time because she wouldnt give me berries and our dodo armys started fighting each other. In the end only like 3 of the 20 dodos survived.

Are there really ARK creatures that don't like you? Tiia educates us on some creatures in ARK that we shouldn't be so trusting of!

It's not every day that you go looking for inspiration to build a giant UFO-like pillar but if today is that day, you're in luck!

Community Crunch 317: Fjordur Release Date, Breeding EVO Event, and More! https://ark-servers.net/blog/853/community-crunch-317-fjordur-release-date-breeding-evo-event-and-more/ https://ark-servers.net/blog/853/community-crunch-317-fjordur-release-date-breeding-evo-event-and-more/ Sat, 28 May 2022 01:00 CEST


Welcome to another edition of the Community Crunch!

Our next free expansion map, Fjordur, is right around the corner. On Sunday, June 12th, prepare to dive into Nordic-inspired adventure with 4 new creatures (Andrewsarchus, Fjordhawk, Desmodus, Fenrir) that are native to Fjordur!

Traverse a fantastical multi-layered wonderland with a frosty Nordic theme. Four unique islands, Vardiland, Vannaland, Bolbjord and Balheimr, and the mystical realms; Jotunheim, Vanaheim, and Asgard, offer elaborate cave systems resplendent with Scandinavian ruins and vast monolithic entrances.



Fjordur is the second community map released with completely new creatures, and the second to include another creature chosen by the ARK community. As we near closer to the launch date on June 12th, we'll be sharing more information regarding the timing of the rollout and servers!



For more information on the creatures arriving with Fjordur, check out this Community Crunch post.

On December 1st 2021 just 13 days before Lost Island released, my Dad passed away and it hit me hard. I wanted to honor him in ARK somehow so once Lost Island came out and i got on a community server, I built a memorial for my Dad on a little cliff just outside the castle in the Redwoods castle and placed the dermis of a Direwolf on top as he had a picture of a wolf on his computer that he took when me and him went to Yellowstone. Today would have been his birthday. Miss you Dad ❤️
