This is a quick guide on how to prepare for a Map Wipe on EliteArk.
1) Find a new map
The EliteArk Season system means that not all maps are wiping at the same time. You want to find another map that your tribe can call home. Find a safe spot and build a base to protect everything you're taking off the map that is wiping. Tip: Check Discord for what maps last wiped so that the map you move to isn't wiped soon.
2) Transfer your tames and items to the new map
Using the SS Transmitter you can move your tames and items between maps. This can take a while so make sure you get your tribe mates to help! You can start moving items whenever you're ready so it is up to you if you do this at the last minute or space it out over a few days.
3) Transfer your character
Make sure your character is transferred to a map that isn't wiping! If you leave your character on a wiping map it will be permanently lost, along with your tribe membership on other maps and imprints. The most important thing about preparing for a wipe is to get your character safely onto another map.
You are welcome to move as much or as little from the wiping map. It's totally okay to just take the basics or if you prefer you can take all your resources and even pickup your old base structures. But whatever hasn't been moved by the time the map wipes is gone forever and will not be replaced by the admins.
Fresh maps normally launch around 12PM EST (Google '12PM EST' to find out what time that is for you). To give Ronnie time to get the map ready it is normally wiped at least an hour or two prior. Please make sure you are fully moved off the map by 10AM EST on wipe day to be safe.
There you go - that's how to prepare for a map wipe on EliteArk. Following these simple steps will allow your tribe to carry their progress forward through the whole season.
