    Server Introduction
    Hello, we are a community of competitive players looking for more active PVP minded players to join our server. We offer a longterm home for anyone interested in general PVP and active base raiding. The server rules are standard, but are subject to change should our community deem it necessary. We are currently working on getting our community website, forum, and voice chat server setup to receive your feedback. We aim to have our Admins on during most of the day to take care of any issues you may experience. We believe in fairplay and good sportsmanship, and are building this community with that as our goal. We are trying to fill a niche not offered by other Ark servers. Overtime we hope to provide weekly events, and other things for our members to take part in.


    We hope you will join us for some good old PVP.:)

    If we are going to do this via the LotD website we are going to need a separate public forum for Ark. I'll try and write a review of the game for the front page.

    I just wanted to say that on the PURE GAMING 24-7 server, average load 45, max 70, never less than 30 players any given time of day that I have played on the past few days actually was the exact kind of environment we were looking for. PvP is real and always going on, somehow the server got sectioned off (unofficially) into north south east west, with QM, GOON SQUAD and PURE holding the other zones and the solo's like me holding the north east. Just saying that not every server had those PvE carebears and my only concern is that hopefully enough of the like minded players/tribes are still looking for such a server like one we would provide, because if the PURE gaming server is any indication, most might have found that kind of environment already.

    That said, will you allow uploads? I think we should, sketchy as I heard it can be, to give tribes that want to play on a server like ours without starting at level one a chance to come over and get established without feeling like they have to do too much to do so. Most decent servers with rules like ours etc seem to NOT allow downloads to prevent the rules from being broken by trolls hoping from one server to the other, but I think having this option will get more quality players to at least consider the move.

    Introduction
    Ark: Survival Evolved is a science fiction game where humans must survive on the inhospitable island of Ark. An Island filled with dinosaurs of every kind and species. Its also a island filled with secrets to be explored, and a story to be unraveled. Some of these dinosaurs can be none-aggressive and friendly while others can be dangerous and predatory. However they are all useful to you, and you must learn to overcome them to survive. Ark is an island where you also have to survive the elements. From crushing morning heatwaves to bitter freezing nights. Thankfully you are given the basic tools you need to build your home on Ark, but your not the only one. Other humans have been scattered across the map much like yourself, and some them might not be so friendly. Having no memory of who dropped them on Ark all humans are in a perpetual state of conflict. Not only with their new environment, but also with each other. Thus the struggle begins.

    Ark: Survival Evolved is a new breed of survival game that mixes the leveling and progression system of a standard MMO, with the simplicity of a game like Rust. Unlike other survival games like Rust and DayZ there will be a story that developers promise will be deep and interesting. The AI in Ark is also dramatically superior to other survival games. Each creature in the world of Ark has its own unique behavior and interacts with the world in a believable way. For example predators will attack other dinosaurs. Certain dinosaurs live in family groups, and if you attack one member of the family the rest will come to its aid. Raptors and Dilos hunt in packs. The end result is a very lively and authentic world. The building system is also very deep compared to other games in the genre. It is much more fully featured than almost all other survival game to date. The inclusion of an irrigation system for farming, and electrical system for base defense via auto turrets, and air conditioning system for home heat control. Since food rots having electricity is very important as you can install a refrigeration system to keep food rip for longer periods, which saves you much needed time to do other things. The list of features also keeps growing as the developers are very interested in increasing the games lifespan, and giving players more reason to keep playing. Considering the developers update schedule the game looks like it could be one of the most worthwhile game experiences in a while, and I hope you can join us on our server.

    I'm going to go ahead and say I have no issue starting over at level 1, I think since the game has been out a lot of us have learned better stat placement, leveling methods and which recipes to bother unlocking, we could easily rebuild quickly especially with our gained knowledge and overall organization, but my concern will still be server population and activity for pvp, as well as seeing how well we can fix rollbacks and rubber banding.

    The rules are being reworked currently to get more people on the server. One of the major changes is taming speed and structure invulnerability during off raid hours.

    Isn't our server dead after the back stab and run committed by the other guild? Might not be worth paying a monthly fee if we aren't really using it.
