    Overwatch Section Player Survey

    The Overwatch section has grown tremendously over the last 10 months. There is no way that we could have done it without you guys. You all bring awesome ideas to the table, and we'd like to hear more from you. The Overwatch Staff have developed an anonymous survey for everyone from the Overwatch section to fill out. We hope to use this survey to continue to improve our section. The survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes to fill out depending on how detailed you answer. Although we will never publish the results of the survey, we will be putting some of your ideas and suggestions into place over the coming weeks and months. Thank you for taking the time to fill it out! If you have any questions or concerns about the survey, feel free to message Liz. LINK TO SURVEY

    Hello, I've introduced myself long ago but I diuobt many of you remember me at all from the old ADK Metro. I've been gaming forever, since the Atari 2600 era and I haven't stopped since. I've played multiplayer FPS since Castle Wolfenstein, plus some league play. Now, I just like playing pubs and making gameplay videos that no one watches, outside old friends. So, here is a new video from yesterday, this is video one of two. I do hope you enjoy the video. It was my first time in ADK Discord, fun times ADK Metro & the SV/Rex Affair

The ADK WoW section has only just started out once again in July after a beautiful revamp - Our sole focus is bringing the fun back into the game and enjoying everything from questing, dungeons and more!

We are active on both the forums and discord there will always be someone for you to ask questions or even just have a friendly chat with. Our focus is you, so why not come and find out more!

Along with my new membership and their awesome Discord, I'm glad I chose to come to ADK." - ADK Member Funks [in-game name Melgobson] "As someone who is very picky with MMO's it's been very refreshing to be able to pick up the game and not only learn at my own pace but have others to help me when needed as well. Tagond and his staff have created a great friendly atmosphere that welcomes the noobs all the way up to the more advanced WoW players. If you're looking for a new game to play, come stop by the WoW Section!" - ADK Founder AOBLXIX - [in-game name aoblxix] Thank you for taking the time to read this and I really hope to see you soon both on discord and in-game.

    Summer Games are back! Summer games are coming back on August 8th with Lucio ball having a brand new arena and with the skins from the last Summer games coming back but this time the old skins can be bought with credits and with a discount! So if you wanted any of the old legendary skins it will now cost 1000 credits instead of 3000. (Thanks Jeff I don't have that many credits right now) The new skins will still cost 3000 credits ofcourse. Also you will be getting less duplicates when you open loot boxes Lucio ball is back with new changes! Lucio ball is back with a brand new arena, this time it will be on Sydney Australia! They made new changes with the gamemode. Now you are not longer allowed to boop your enemies to make score the ball easier. They removed the old concept of Lucio making the ball come back to him by using his Ultimate ability. Now when you use your Ultimate ability you are quicker, you jump higher and you make the ball move faster when you boop it making Lucio into a super Lucio aka Boostioooooooo! Also Lucio ball will have a brand new competitive side to it where you can do placements and have skill rating in terms of how well you do in Lucio ball. New skins! Jeff told us in the developer update that new legendary skins will be coming for Junkrat and Mercy, Jeff said this Mercy legendary skin is gonna be one of his favorite skins in the whole game! Jeff also told us Widow and McCree items will come too that "Will blow your mind!" Also Roadhog is not getting anything. Hope you are ready for the return of Summer games in August 8th!

    Doomfist is officially live on the servers! Along with Doomfist, some much anticipated Loot Box changes have come as well as the Reinhardt bug fixes! Join us in discord to come play some of the new changes with ADK over the coming weeks! Without further ado, here are the official Overwatch Patch Notes! PATCH HIGHLIGHTS New Hero: Doomfist (Offense): Equipped with charisma and ambition, Doomfist is a consummate tactician and one of the leaders of Talon: literally throwing down his gauntlet as he joins the fight. From his base in Nigeria, Doomfist is a commanding offense hero equipped with hard-hitting melee abilities. Driven by a belief that conflict is essential to humanity’s progress, he’s committed to advancing his vision of the future—even if the agents of Overwatch disagree with his methods. Doomfist’s cybernetics make him a highly mobile, powerful frontline fighter. His primary attack is the Hand Cannon; this four-shot weapon fires projectiles from Doomfist’s knuckles one at a time or in a single blast. With his secondary attack, Rocket Punch, he charges forward and delivers a devastating blow, knocking back any opponent it connects with and dealing extra damage if the enemy is hurled into a wall. Seismic Slam smashes into a targeted area, knocking opponents toward him so he can deal further damage. His Rising Uppercut tosses enemies high into the air, while his passive ability, The Best Defense…, grants him shields every time he uses one of his abilities against an opponent. Lastly, his ultimate ability, Meteor Strike, causes him to leap high and drop into a targeted area, dealing massive amounts of damage. To learn more about Doomfist, click here. Loot Box Updates We always want the experience of opening a loot box to feel exciting and rewarding, and in our latest patch, we’re working to improve that experience in two key ways. First, we’re drastically reducing the amount of duplicates you will receive when opening loot boxes. Second, to compensate for this reduction of duplicate items, we’re also increasing the overall amount of credits you will receive from loot boxes. On average, you should be earning just as many credits, if not slightly more, from loot boxes as you did prior to these changes. New Highlight Options Our highlights system has received several major updates: The game will continue to automatically generate highlights for you based on your recent gameplay. These auto-generated highlights—now categorized as “Today’s Top 5”—will be surfaced on a daily basis and persist for a full 24 hours (or until the game client is patched, whichever happens first). Players can now generate their own highlights! The ability to capture 12 seconds of your own gameplay has been added to the game, and can be bound to a single button of your choice (or a button per highlight slot) in the Options menu under “Request Highlight.” These player-generated highlights will be saved under a new section called “Recently Captured” and will persist until the game client is patched. Players can have up to 36 recently-captured highlights stored at one time. With the above, players can now record any of their “Top 5” or “Recently Captured” highlights, exporting them as a video file to their gaming platform’s designated media library (on console) or directory (on PC). On PC, players will also have the option to select the quality at which these highlights are exported, supporting up to 4K for Windows 8 or higher operating systems, and up to 1080p on Windows 7. To learn more about this feature, check out our recent developer update: https://youtu.be/OkYJlPMdWNA GENERAL Adjusted the respawn timing to limit defensive stalling strategies when the offensive team has a clear advantage and plays aggressively Custom Games and Game Browser Clarified the text on the “Flag Carrier” options under the Capture the Flag settings for Custom Games Removed the “Projectile Speed” and “Projectile Gravity” options for heroes who do not have projectile weapons Minimum movement speed has been changed to 50% (formerly 10%) Players can no longer select Roadhog during Limited 1v1 matches User Interface Added ability to create customized reticles Reticle options can be found under the “Controls” tab in the “Options” menu (click the “Advanced” expander under the “Reticle” heading) The name of Mercy's “Stethoscope” spray has been changed to “Heartbeat” Statistics gathered from 6v6 Elimination matches will now be added to statistics in the Career Profile Tie games will no longer be included in the win percentage calculation that’s listed under the Player Profile HERO UPDATES D.Va Defense Matrix New sound effects and voice lines have been added, indicating when Defense Matrix has absorbed an enemy’s ultimate ability Genji Deflect New sound effects and voice lines have been added, indicating when an enemy’s ultimate ability has been deflected McCree Flashbang Stunned targets are now slowed heavily, meaning they're less likely to escape while stunned (especially while in the air) Developer Comment: This change will make McCree's Flashbang consistent against fast-moving targets like Genji or Lúcio. Reaper Shadow Step Sound effect and VO distance has been reduced by 50% Developer Comment: Even though Shadow Step wasn't intended to be used as a way for players to teleport right next to an enemy without their knowledge, the sound effects were audible from distances that made teleportation difficult from nearly anywhere. This change allows Reaper to be a bit more sneaky with his flanking options. Reinhardt Rocket Hammer Swing speed increased by 10% Developer Comment: In the last update, Reinhardt’s Rocket Hammer had an issue that allowed players with higher latency to swing faster. We fixed this bug, which suddenly made the swing speed feel too slow, so we’re compensating by increasing his standard swing speed. During this process, we also found and fixed a few bugs with Rocket Hammer’s hit registration. Overall, the hammer should feel much better. Zarya Graviton Surge Now disables mobility abilities on all affected targets Developer Comment: In the past, the abilities that allowed heroes to escape Zarya’s Graviton Surge felt fairly arbitrary. We’re cleaning this up and increasing Graviton Surge's overall power by rendering all movement abilities unusable when an enemy is trapped. BUG FIXES General Fixed an issue preventing “Best In Game” stats from being updated Fixed a bug that could cause the user interface to incorrectly indicate that an enemy player has been hit when colliding with them Fixed a bug that could allow projectiles that would normally pierce shields (i.e. Reinhardt’s Fire Strike) to pass through other surfaces Fixed a bug that caused some players to lose audio during the match Competitive Play Fixed a bug that caused players to get a leaver penalty during offseason matches, even after the in-game banner advised it was safe to leave the match Custom Games and Game Browser Fixed a bug that prevented players from being added to a Custom Game with 12 Spectator slots Fixed a bug in Custom Game settings that prevented some heroes with Self Healing from having a Healing Dealt modifier Removed the Projectile Gravity slider from heroes who do not have abilities affected by gravity Heroes Fixed a bug with D.Va’s Call Mech ability that allowed you to see her inside the mech before entering it Fixed a bug that could cause eliminations from Junkrat’s Total Mayhem to be mislabeled in the kill feed Fixed a bug that would cause Junkrat to use his Ultimate Callout when he is unable to use his Ultimate Fixed a bug that allowed Roadhog’s Chain Hook to latch on to Orisa’s Supercharger Fixed a bug that allowed Sombra to take damage after activating her Translocator The sound effects on Reinhardt's Bloodhardt, Blackhardt, and Wujing skins have been updated to reflect the use of an axe instead of a hammer Fixed a bug preventing Lucio from receiving the full speed boost when traveling backwards during a Wall Ride Fixed a bug that occasionally prevented Torbjörn from building and upgrading his turret Fixed multiple hit registration bugs in Reinhardt’s Rocket Hammer Maps Fixed a bug on Eichenwalde that prevented Soldier 76 from placing his Biotic Field in certain locations of Point A Fixed a bug that caused AI-controlled players to perpetually move toward the objective on the Gardens point in Oasis Fixed a bug that prevented Training Bots from facing the right direction and returning to their original location after being moved by player interactions on the Practice Range Fixed a bug with that was causing unusual camera angles for Highlight Intros on Route 66 Fixed a bug that could cause D.Va to fall through the floor while boosting into the ground in a specific area on Volskaya Industries

    I'll take away my 3 most played heroes (Lucio, Mercy, D.va) and try to decide from there. Lets be honest, it won't be a defense hero. I also don't enjoy any of the other support heroes enough to exclusively play them. I'd honestly say possibly Pharah, because although I'm still pretty trash at her, I can at least enjoy myself while playing her and wouldn't mind being better at her. (Lets be real though I'd be content being Lucio forever)

    Junkrat Buffs

    What do you guys think about new changes that are coming for Junkrat? Geoff Goodman Principal Designer : https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20758326009?page=4#post-70 This is pretty close to what we're trying with him, and what will likely be on the PTR when it comes back up. Currently on our internal builds Junkrat has 2 charges of his Concussion Mine. This allows you to do all kinds of cool stuff like launch yourself into a fight and still have a charge to escape with, or launch yourself up into a Pharah and still have a charge to try and kill her with. Previously this was possible before but you had to plant one on the ground and then wait for the cooldown to come back before doing this. That is still possible, which allows for a triple jump now if you want/need that, but now it is a lot more reliable to do with 2. It has been a ton of fun to play with so far.We're also looking at making his ult a bit better. We're experimenting with a movement speed increase or a health increase on the tire. We wouldn't do both things but in either case it should be more reliable to use in more situations.

    Welcome to ADK! My battlenet tag is Erichan#11735 . I am currently taking a break from competitive as well, and playing lots of mystery heroes/quick play. I'm looking forward to the summer games to also unwind with some Lucio ball! Speaking of fun, every Friday night we run inhouses at 9 PM EST. We start off the night with a fun gamemode, then move to competitive style gameplay. However since it's still with and against friends, plus no SR is involved, it's still tons of fun! I hope to have a chance to play with you soon.

    PTR Patch Aug 10, 2017

    PATCH HIGHLIGHTS New Game Modes: Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch Two new game modes have been added to the Arcade: Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch! In Deathmatch, eight players go head-to-head until one player scores 20 points. Players will earn 1 point whenever they land the final blow on an opponent and will lose 1 point whenever they die to environmental damage (ex: falling off a cliff) or self-inflicted damage. This scoring will be tracked in a brand-new scoreboard. The first player to 20 points wins! In Team Deathmatch, two teams of four players face off until one team scores 30 points. Players will earn 1 point for their team whenever they land the final blow on an opponent and will lose 1 point for their team whenever they die to environmental damage (ex: falling off a cliff) or self-inflicted damage. If players are resurrected before they respawn, the corresponding point for their death will be deducted from the enemy team’s score. This scoring will be tracked in our default scoreboard. The first team to 30 points wins! Both modes will play out on a selection of maps from our existing pool: Hanamura Horizon Lunar Colony Temple of Anubis Volskaya Industries Dorado Eichenwalde Hollywood King’s Row (TDM only) Black Forest (TDM only) Castillo (TDM only) Ecopoint: Antarctica (TDM only) Necropolis We’ve made several modifications to many of these maps (including restricting play to a specific area and developing a special respawn system) when playing in these modes. We’re also introducing a brand-new map specifically for Deathmatch: Château Guillard! Learn more about this map below. Both modes will be available for play in Custom Games. Watch our developer update for additional insight: https://youtu.be/4_CBzklel1c Here is video showing of the new deathmatch FFA. here New Deathmatch Map: Château Guillard Château Guillard is located near Annecy in southeastern France. For hundreds of years, it was the estate of the influential Guillard family, until it gradually fell into disrepair after the family's power waned in the decades after the Revolution. Recently, the château has found a new owner: the Talon agent Widowmaker, who has returned to her family's ancestral home. GENERAL A number of data format changes have been implemented Developer Comments: Over the past few months, we’ve been working on a number of significant under-the-hood changes that will help us streamline the patching process. This will allow us to reduce the download size in future patches, but it does mean that today’s patch is larger than a traditional patch. HERO UPDATES Junkrat Concussion Mine Junkrat can now hold two mines RIP-Tire Tire’s movement speed has been increased by 30% There is no longer a time limit when wall climbing Developer Comments: Giving the Junkrat the ability to store two concussion mines adds some much-needed flexibility and versatility to his kit, particularly when using the mines for mobility. RIP-Tire’s damage has always been very good, but it was often difficult to steer the tire into position before it was destroyed. Increasing its speed will allow players to effectively detonate the tire more often and decrease the amount of time that Junkrat is vulnerable while controlling it. Orisa Fusion Driver Projectile speed increased by 20% Protective Barrier Barrier size increase by 20% Barrier shape has been changed to allow for more coverage from enemies that are below the barrier Developer Comments: The projectile speed increase helps Orisa’s consistency, especially at medium ranges (or further). Her barrier size has been increased to better protect her team, and the new shape makes the shield more effective when it’s used on slopes or on top of objects (such as a payload). Roadhog (I might be disappointed with the new buff for road.) Take a Breather Can now be used while moving Damage taken while healing has been reduced by 50% Developer Comments: These changes help Roadhog be much more aggressive when looking for hook targets or blocking for his team. The combination of these effects significantly increases Roadhog’s sustainability and survivability. Widowmaker Grappling Hook Cooldown has been reduced from 12 seconds to 8 Venom Mine Affected targets are now visible through walls (to you as Widowmaker only) Developer Comments: Widowmaker is extremely powerful in the right hands, but her abilities often felt a little weak. The Grappling Hook cooldown reduction means she is more likely to have it available when she needs to escape. Venom Mine is intended to be an early warning system, uncovering enemies that are attempting to flank her or her team. With this change, she can see enemies when they trigger the mine, even if they’re on the other side of a wall. You watch this video to see the new buffs in action. USER INTERFACE Added an “Outline Opacity” option under the custom reticle settings (found under Controls > Options > Advanced), which allows players to control the opacity of the black outline surrounding the reticule BUG FIXES General Fixed a bug that occasionally required the Capture Point progress bar to progress past the second tick mark before being activated Heroes Fixed a bug that could cause D.Va's black ejection screen to briefly reappear after being ejected from her mech Fixed a bug causing D.Va’s Light Gun to use the wrong texture while outside of her mech when the Junker skin was equipped Fixed a bug that caused D.Va’s hair to stand straight up on the Hero Select screen when her Cruiser was equipped Fixed a bug causing the lights on the back of Doomfist’s gauntlet to incorrectly indicate full ammo when his Hello emote was activated Fixed a bug that prevented the area-of-effect circle for Doomfist’s Meteor Strike from being visible to all players Fixed a bug preventing the height from Doomfist’s Meteor Strike from being high enough to reach certain locations Fixed a bug that was preventing Doomfist’s Rocket Punch from connecting with enemy players that were moving up an incline Fixed a bug that caused Hanzo’s arrow to disappear when his Meditate emote was active Fixed a bug preventing Orisa’s “Overclocked” achievement from being granted, even after the criteria was met Fixed a bug causing Sombra’s teeth to be visible while her Stealth ability was active when her Los Muertos skin was equipped Fixed a bug causing Sombra’s reload animation to play even when interrupted Maps Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations on Ecopoint: Antarctica Fixed a bug that allowed players to see past the map’s background on Black Forest Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations on Black Forest Fixed a bug that caused the announcer to say “Traveling to Dorado” when joining Castillo Fixed a bug that prevented some equipment (vents, pipes, etc.) from properly connecting to the walls of the power plant on Dorado Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations on Hanamura Fixed an issue that caused sprays to display incorrectly on the crane on the Horizon Lunar Colony Fixed a bug that could cause A.I. heroes to get themselves stuck while traveling to the Well Capture Point on Ilios Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations on Ilios Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations on Oasis Fixed a bug that prevented Pharah’s Jump Jet from recharging while perched on doorframes in Oasis Fixed a bug that prevented doorframes from being visible and lacking collision on the Practice Range User Interface Fixed a bug in the Options > Controls menu that prevented the asterisk (which normally indicates that changes have been made) from being removed from the hero’s dropdown after controls have been set to default Fixed a bug causing the Back button to disappear when scrolling through the list of available games in the Game Browser Fixed a bug that prevented grouped players from appearing linked in the tab menu during a Custom Game What do you guys think about the new buffs and the new game modes with the new map?

    Hello, my name is Squidward. First off Squidward is the "Best" Cartoon Character of all time, period. Other than liking a fantasy character that swoop me off my feet during my hard childhood, least it brought me hope & Joy. So this profile photo I use, is my label of me and my great personality that is myself and soul. Funny thing is, no joke, Squidward represents me 100%. How so you might ask? well you curious lurker on the inter-web, let me tell you. First, I love playing the clarinet, and have a passion for music. Music was also my gate way through my life, due to some personal problems, that I will tell you about later, if your the curious person keep reading. Back on topic, second way I can relate to this cartoon character, I have his personality, i can be mean loving kind of guy. Most of the time . Well if you want to know how I'm more like Squidward, find out yourself. Well, if you are one of the curious lurkers wondering about my personal problem, keep reading. Other than liking music and relate to a cartoon character. I really love video games, brought me joy to me life. It blew my mind when I can make new friends and play to gather etc. Well it was fun at times, but most of my gaming experience with people, was awful. ( most of the time i play single player) Well you might ask why you curious lurker, well I shall tell you now. Drum roll please, bum bum bum bummm! well I was born handicapped aka "disability" This disability is called "Muteness" which is a disability when it causes the patient not able to speak. Well you might know now, why my gaming life was horrible 99% of the time. gaming clans, communities, groups etc. Did not accept me, made fun of me (wont name the groups), and demanded a mic. Hope you enjoy your reward lurkers Other than that, If you got anyway questions about me, shoot me a question in the comments. You guys have a blessed day. Happy Gaming!

    Vote: ARK server wipe on release?

    I personally think that a wipe will be beneficial to the player base. It would be a great time for all of us to be put on an equal playing field going forward, as well it will make a number of the players joining us near release (we are expecting an influx) to not feel like they are being left in the dust. There is potential for the wipe to bring back a lot of returning players as well as players who were waiting for the release of the game.

    Vote ban server for chat spam

    Ok, I know it's been a while since I've gotten to see the backend and play with the fun metrics but do we seriously need the clear lag and server messages to be this frequent? They are downright distracting and quite frankly more dangerous than the mobs at this point. I know that several players (myself included) have lost an inordinate amount of items due to the aggressive frequency of the clear lag. The chat spam makes holding conversations very difficult even with only two players online. Other gripes include the new /home tp lag and the 5min afk kick. Is this to combat lag or do you just want to see more swam in lava messages? Also, a 5 min afk kick only makes sense if you're near capacity regularly or have some people who are bad about chunk loading. Just a few things I've noticed since the upgrade to 1.12 and it's starting to get on my nerves. Hoping someone on staff can share some insight on these observations.

    Vote ban server for chat spam

    @KernalSpicyWeinerThe changes to the clearlag were done with the update to 1.12 @IanIt is not what is said, it is how it is said and presented. We do like to hear about the ideas of the community. I originally became an adviser on the premise that I would be an advocate for the people on the server. I have always been fair and taken into consideration the ideas and problems that players have, but I can't do that when no one says anything to me. If people come to me and are polite about it, then I have no problem making changes that are within reason. As for the chat spam, that was an accident that they cycled so fast. It was originally intended that they would be on a 3 minute timer, but when I moved the mod over I forgot to change it back from 1 minute. I also know that you were having an issue with the game not liking too many messages from one person. I have fixed that so it doesn't yell at you for "spamming." I was even fixing configs on the back end while you and LT were discussing issues that you were having.

    I am pleased to say that the long anticipated release of the =ADK= Survival server on 1.12 is finally here! We have remade the server with a few new plugins and some old familiar ones. Also, we have NOT wiped the Survival server so all your builds and items will be as they were! Lastly, PLEASE let the Minecraft staff know if any issues arise!!! Thank you for waiting for, like, however long it was! -Minecraft Staff

    Minecraft Survival Server update 1.12

    Looks good! I finally popped into the server. My minecraft experience consists of running around in solo survival and building like tiny little huts and getting a dog and then breeding like a billion dogs and then restarting. If people are playing and maybe i can figure out what the heck is going on haha!

    The winning gamemode is 500% Everything! How will this mode be played? Overwatch will be amped up! Everything will be at 500%, which will make for a very fast paced gamemode! Like most 500% everything rulesets, we will be doing it in a mystery heroes fashion to spice things up. There will be a couple of balance changes, but other than that it's the fun gamemode we all know and love! Will this mode last for the entire duration of the inhouse? No. We will be playing Competitive 6v6 during the night similar to how we would if any other gamemode is played. How will the inhouse be set up then? We will be playing a few rounds of 500% Everything until everyone has their fill. We will then move onto regular Competitive 6v6. Near the end of the night we will consider doing the mode again if there is still enough interest. We hope to see all of you on Friday! Thank you to everyone who voted on our poll located here! We are happy to announce the mode that we will be playing this week is 500% Everything. If your desired mode was not selected, please make sure to cast your vote next week! It will be up on Friday, as soon as inhouses have concluded. Remind me, when are inhouses? Inhouses take place on Fridays at 9 PM Eastern/8 PM Central. You are welcome to bring your friends to participate with us, but we do ask that they join us on discord.

    Hey there Dino Lovers! We have updated our servers to v264.15! We are all becoming very anxious and excited for the release of the game officially in August! Keep in mind that there are still a lot of unknowns that we are waiting to have word on for the release of the game and we will let you guys know of any changes that happen along the way. A link to the complete patch notes can be found HERE With that being said the ARK staff have sat down and we are bringing a few, mostly minor changes to the server! Loot Crate multipliers - The quality of items found in the loot drops around the world has been very disappointing to players. An option has been added for us to increase the quality of items within those loot crates and we have turned it up! (We are testing this change over the next little while) Fishing loot multiplier - We have also increased the loot quality of drops obtained while fishing! (We are testing this change over the next little while) Unicorn Spawn Restriction Removed - Previously only one Unicorn could be present on a map at any given time including if a Unicorn had been tamed. Now there can always be one wild Unicorn on the map, when it is tamed, another one can spawn. Happy Hunting! Dino tame decay turned on - Previously admins had to manually deal with abandoned player dinos. We have turned on the passive timer for making another players dinosaurs claimable by anyonr. We have increased the amount of time for dinosaurs to be claimable to 31 days. Player demolish timer - We are doubling the current player demolish timer, we felt that players who were taking advantage of the hived servers were forced to go back to other servers more often then they would have liked. The new demolish timers are approximately as follows: Wood: 12 days Stone: 24 Days Metal: 30 days Tek: 40 days Platform saddles will now allow multi level building - As always please be respectful of other players building spaces when traveling around with mobile structures. Please note that admins WILL tear down mobile structures obstructing other players bases and no compensation will be given. Player respecing - A change was made a few patches ago to only allow players to respec using a mindwipe tonic once per level. This change was, in our opinion, a change that was made directed at PVP servers. We are reverting this change to that players can respec to fit the content they are currently working on. Lastly please note, a dino wipe has been initiated on all servers, this is only to accommodate the changes made to the Ragnarok server spawns as well as the Pegomastix and Microraptors being re-added to the server. If you have any questions about any of our changes please feel free to post or talk to an ARK Staff in discord! Hope to see you guys around the ARK!

    Roadhog buffsss????????

    On one hand, they definitely nerfed road hog too far. However, I feel like perhaps this is the time to give some other heroes love instead. There are several niche or completely non-viable heroes. Can they not just let Roadhog be out of the spotlight for more than a couple of weeks?
