As its a new month the server rankings have been reset, voting for MTSArk servers will now reward 500 Points, 1x Empty Cryopod and a chance of between 1-3 Extraordinary Kibble. For limited time only.
All shop /kit uses have been reset (1st of the Month.)
Saddle Armour Clamp = 112%/140%*
Membership whitelist wave updated.
Wild Dinos destroyed and respawned on all maps.
*Correction on a grey area, the maximum saddle cap for most dinos is 140% however; Carbonemys, Trike, Pachyrhinosaurus, Diplodocus, Paracer, Paracer Platoform and Bronto saddles all have lower armour values. Their cap is 112% which is different. These values must be respected also.
2.5 Maximum cage timer is 24 hours. (Rule does not apply if you are raiding, you can keep a player caged during the entire duration of the raid if it exceeds 1 day.)
Beginners servers cycle has ended and the servers are currently being prepared for the new launch tomorrow. (Friday 2nd August @ 5pm BST.) There are a few changes for this new cycle with a new system we are experimenting - these changes may revert but we are interested to see how they perform.
Beginners Server Changes
New Map - EXTINCTION!
Offline Raid Protection will now feature full protection instead of increased resistance and damage.
Beginners Server Offline Raid Protection Guide
As with all our servers, you must place down up to 3 ORP zones using /setorp <name>
When your last tribe member logs offline a 1 hour activation timer will begin.
When this timer reaches 0, all tribe structures in your ORP zone will be immune to damage and your turrets will have infinite ammo.
Any structures left outside of your ORP zones are still venerable to offline attacks.
You can check your ORP zone radius by typing /orp
The reasoning and thought process behind this change is to allow building up which is the true purpose on the servers, we are aware people play beginners just for early PVP with no intention of moving on as they prefer the primitive play style, which is fine. However, this change will steer away from that play style and focus more on the building up aspect. As we invite as many people as we can from beginners to join up with the main cluster with a fighting chance of staying relatively established once transfers are enabled.
Membership Pre Orders / Whitelist
Even though our servers are completely free to play on. We recommend all players wanting to obtain a whitelist to garuntee a server slot during server cap and to avoid disappointment to purchase it prior to the servers releasing. As anyone who purchases membership after release will experience delays in their whitelist being delivered.
I will be adding all people currently waiting tonight and there will be one final update before the servers go live tomorrow. As we will be very busy tomorrow I suggest getting it early encase you miss the first wave due to us having too many to do! It is first come first serve in terms of priority.
After payment has been made please head to our Orders section on our forum and complete the template with your order info, an admin will notify you when your rank has been delivered.
Have a great evening,
