Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch!
PC player will receive a free forced mindwipe this upcoming patch. This mindwipe is being conducted due to changes that were made in our last patch regarding the altering of weight values of armor. In the interest of fairness we would like to allow players to redo their characters to compensate for the altered weights of these armor sets.
This free mindwipe will come to console in the patch that correlates with these weight changes, which will be mentioned in the respective console patch notes threads at that time.
ARK and its expansions are currently on sale on Xbox during the ID@Xbox Game Fest sale! Sale ends today, May 21st, 2018.

Community Livestream #2 This Week!
This Thursday May 25th and continuing every other week on Thursdays, the community team will be doing our second biweekly livestream.
During these livestreams Zen Rowe, Chris, and Jen will be bringing you ARK news, celebrating modding, and the community as a whole every other week. We’ll be playing ARK, showing off mods, and showing off your community creations for all to see. Survivors are invited to join us in the chat (and sometimes even in-game) to play and talk with the community team and other developers.
We are still accepting any type of ARK related fanart to be featured in the Showcase section of the stream and entries are always open. This can be drawings, videos, builds, ANSEL screenshots, handmade crafts, anything ARK related!
You can submit your ARKwork to our streaming email address: email@example.com
Be sure to follow us on our Twitch page so you don’t miss a stream! twitch.tv/survivetheark
The Great Migration #3!
In case you missed our new post last week, be sure it check out it for all of the information regarding some legacy servers being removed:
Upcoming Specialty Servers!
Beginning in June we plan to begin launching Speciality servers. Speciality servers are alternate game modes for ARK that last for a short period of time. Each new theme will bring on a new set of challenges different from that of servers currently available. Commonly a speciality server will last for a period of 60 days, and a new type will be released each month on all platforms. Modes may return for multiple months if players enjoy them.
If you have a game mode that you think would be fun to play, be sure to leave your comment in the thread. Changes will revolve around edits that can be made to the existing config. These types of changes can include many things like: tribe/alliance size, anything related to dino stats and taming, server rates, etc.
ARK: Evolution Event!
Survivors across ALL Platforms will be receiving a special Evolution Event perk this weekend! It will be active from the 25th of May at 1 PM EST until Monday the 28th at 3 PM EST. All Official Servers will be undergoing this evolutionary change which includes:
2x Harvesting Rate
2x Taming Rate
2x EXP Rate
That’s it for this post guys!
All the best,
