Information regarding beginners servers;
Wanted to summarise the recent happenings with beginners servers. With these new machines we are using a temporary "clustering" method for our servers. If none of you know our servers are split up accross 5 individuals 7700k machines to make ping as good as it can for you all. Clustering over multiple machines is a challenge and our current method we are using can be unreliable.
We will be enabling transferring from beginners to main cluster tomorrow, please ensure NOTHING is left in your ARK DATA as this will be reset when we move to the main cluster ID. You have been warned.
As soon as we have transferring successfully working there will be a 48 hour window where transferring will be open before the beginners server shutdowns and prepares to reset. When we have dates we will be sure to post them on discord - right now there is no ETA.
Finally, we recommend NOT transferring immediately when they open - when too many people transfer at once thats when our cluster share becomes broken. Take your time.
Valguero 1 & 2
Valguero 1 & 2 will be clustered together this Friday 28th June. The transferring will feature full character, items and dino transfers to and from Valguero 1 & 2. These too maps will eventually be added to our official MTS cluster in July.
Offline Guard System
If you missed our posts earlier, we had to wipe and remove all OGS Pillars on all our maps. You must replace yours ASAP as without doing so your base will be venerable to normal 1x damage when offline.
All I can do is offer my deepest apologies for the crashes recently, we have seen a slight increase and this can be for a number of reasons. They truly are uncontrollable and we are working with server techs and engineers in getting this resolved, we have already removed a couple of causes and continue to elimate problems when found. Please remember, you are playing on the largest Ark community in the game. Our servers are extremely popular all the time and are heavily modified with mods and plugins which makes MTS the way it is. Crashes are inevitable and will happen time to time, however it is our aim to make these as rare as possible.
Trust the process.
