I'm going to be addressing tonights events in a post; if you are not interested you can skip this page.
At roughly around 6pm our discord was hacked, all 8750 members were given founder tag and from here everything was deleted and nuked and over 3000+ members were kicked or banned, this was out of my control and I watched it all unfold.
This for me personally was very heartbreaking seeing the community I started from me and 2 buddies messing around on a 30 slot vanilla Island server to creating a cluster than has taken over Ark, became the most popular unofficial cluster server and restored many of peoples faith in the game be ripped apart.
Our discord took years to perfect and to see it erased was devasting. To not put our Ark clusters at risk we immediately shut the down and put them in lockdown - this was to prevent any sabotage. We apologise for the convieniece this caused but ensuring the safety of our servers is our number 1 priority. The servers will remain down until they are ready to re open securely and the current ETA for this is before noon (London, UK) on Monday the 17th.
The beginners cluster is not effected.
During this the love and support you have all shown me and my communtiy was truly been breathtaking and I'm taken back by you all and I am honoured to run this community.
The process now is to restore our discord to its previous standard and get the servers back up and running like normal.
