WHAT: Wipe, complete players + world save
WHY: Upcoming map changes, lots of server lag lately. Its been up for 6 months. Tamed dinos under world and other random places. Increased world save file even with auto destroy of structures enabled… ITS TIME.
We been up for almost 6 months without a single wipe (cant say same for most private servers)
WHERE: On your favorite private ark server
WHEN: Server will go down as we speak and be up again around 17:00 CET time
In relation to the vote, we took the log files and cleaned for duplicate votes and filtered out know proxy servers.
End result is around 56% voted YES, 46 voted no (probably still lots of fake votes in these stats)
Even while map changes are not incoming in the patch, we cant wait any longer and it would not be fair to players. So remember NOT to build inside the NO build zones or see everything destroyed once map changes go online.
I hope everyone understands the decision, even though it was a tough one!!!
Some random stats from before wipe:
4615 players joined over time.
1216 tribes created
9 players banned
290 mb savefile
traffic around 90gb per day (quite much actually)
Almost 6 months uptime
