Sean D Knight @SeanDKnight
Still listening to @RatedArk #58 and it seems that the cast doesn't know that trikes are very good bullet soakers now. So it pays for low level players to invest in kibble-taming trikes if they want to do some low level PvPing.
From Sumduud in CRR Discord:
So listening to what feels like hours of back and forth on tutorials and not knowing what you don't know, I have to ask if any if you have looked at this menu option & if console has it?
@EsmeraldaSky & the rest of Saturday's cast
Esme: I was aware of the survivor guide but it was not active for a long time and it looks like they have just put some generic stuff on there but nothing regarding what we were talking about on Episode 59…
Murican Zombie @MuricanZombie @RatedArk ugh this giant map and I got 2 new tribes tryin to build a stones throw from me. Am I a jerk if I wipe them?

ARK PARK UPDATE
Ark Park website hasn't posted any updates since 2-2017. Last post was Secret is in the bush?
Current Version: 759.2 X-Box
- Fixed some translations not displaying properly
- Fixed an issue on PvE and ORP servers where Dino would not have AI
- Fixed an issue where LB+Button combo would not function when selecting items in hotkey bar
- Fixed an issue where you would need to toggle folders to view items in your ARK Data
- Reverted the raft change so foundations can now be stacked again on Official Servers.
You might be wondering why Studio Wildcard has been helping with the development of Dark and Light or why Snail Games announced two ARK spin-offs, the Minecraft-like PixARK and ARK GO, in addition to the free-to-play Chinese release of ARK. Well, it turns out that SDE, Inc, an affiliate of Snail Games USA, which is a subsidiary of Snail Games, bought out Studio Wildcard; the merger was filed for on December 4th, 2015. Officially, the company was merged into "Snail Ark, Inc." Unfortunately, we don't know how much Snail Games paid for the company.
This revelation was made due to the fact that new court documents filed by Insight Venture Management, the parent company of Trendy Entertainment that was recently suing Studio Wildcard over a failure to uphold a non-compete clause, referenced the buyout.
So now you know why ARK is slowly being turned into a major franchise, courtesy of Snail Games. The Chinese game developer and publisher owns Studio Wildcard and, by extension, the ARK franchise. It will be interesting to see what they do with the franchise after this initial burst of games.

COMMUNITY CRUNCH 98: GOLD MASTER EDITION
GOON(whos reading foe lol -giga) Goon will if neededHey, Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! :Jerbhi:
We've got some critical news to share with you all today; it's going to be a roller coaster of emotions as there's a bit of disappointing news, but worry not as you've got a lot to look forward to as well!
Let's address the mammoth in the room. Official Release. As of today, ARK has completed its Gold Master and certification for retail release. This process took a little longer than expected and as a result, our release date has been pushed back to August the 29th. We're deeply apologetic for those who were negatively affected by the delay; it sucks, it wasn't what we had wanted, nor planned but where we currently stand. We wanted to address this sooner but did not want to make any statements until we were completely sure of what was going to happen.
Now you're probably wondering what this means for the next few weeks and how does it change our current plans?
Free DLC: Ragnarok
Ragnarok's new release date on console and upcoming PC update will now also be the 29th of August. This extended time will allow further development of the map and you guys can expect a gigantic update, even bigger than we initially thought.
On the date of release, the overground of the world will increase by approximately one quarter, which is near-enough a 'TheIsland-sized' expansion; the update will feature new biomes, a coastal Wyvern canyon, an epic boss encounter, new engrams, and something secret the Ragnarok team are cooking up! We will also be adding their custom creatures to our main game, which will allow players to transfer them via the CrossARK system, so you'll be able to bring over your Ice Wyverns to The Island, The Center, and Scorched Earth!
Development plans: immediate, mid-month, and going forward.
Over the next few weeks, you will see a lot of priority placed on the PC and multiplayer versions of the game, now that we're completely wrapped up with our gold master. We are planning some immediate patches to take care of community concerns, as well as some mid-month goals and more going forward.
First of all, there will be a lot of focus on PC Performance this month (don’t worry console-users, you’ll be receiving these updates too!). We will be porting over a lot of the improvements we made on console, as well as working with our industry partners to bring up that PC performance to get you the best possible experience.
Secondly, we will be immediately (as I type this the engineers and gameplay programmers are working on the update) showing some love to these aspects of the game:
Multiplayer Bosses; let's face it, they're ridiculous, we know why and we're going to fix it. You'll soon be able to enter the boss arenas and fight bosses at reasonable difficulty, it'll still be a challenge, just no longer a monumental/near-impossible task.
The Baby-to-Juvie-Stasis issue; that's also getting fixed. For those not familiar, this is the problem where baby-creatures are entering stasis which (sort of) prevents them from ageing, and therefore they're not eating from troughs which result in death.
The Center & Under the Mesh; we're going to be implementing a technical solution to stop jerks from going under the map and raiding people. This one will take a little bit longer, but we'll have it in as soon as possible.
That's not all though! We will be releasing a major version update in the middle of the month which will significantly assist with DDoS mitigation, resolve the exploit which has allowed players to dupe, and of course not to be forgotten, but allow players to rent PC-dedicated Console Servers! We're also going to create an option to stop creatures from following you with their big heads (we'd do this one sooner, but it requires a major version update, so we thought it best come with the other significant changes mentioned above :p).
Not to mention, we'll be taking care of server crash-exploits as and when they happen, working on server performance so that you will have a smoother and stable experience.
Thank you so much for your patience the past few months and all the support! We will make sure that ARKs launch is a successful one and the game is in a healthy state. It's going to be a hectic few weeks ahead, and we're very excited! We still have a lot more planned for ARK, and even after release, the journey will continue!
We've started a thread to collect questions for our next ARK Digest, so if you've got something you want to ask - let us know and we might pick it out in the next post! https://survivetheark.com/index.php?/forums/topic/222585-ark-digest-question-collection/

Does ark seem to get real stale, real fast for you?

Posted Wednesday at 12:58 AM (edited)
i've played ark for a good bit, and lately it seems very stale. Maybe it's the constant crashing of ragnarok, or because ark is really repetitive or poorly optimized. IDK. anyone else share this opinion or have any insight on the matter?
Do you have any info you forgot to share? Some shout outs? Future events? Contests? Share them now or wait a week!
