      During the EliteArk Season maps will wipe from time to time. Wipes are always announced at least 24hrs ahead of time via the Discord. When a map wipes you can transfer everything to another map of your choice.
      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.

      EliteArk runs a unique system for wiping our maps. The struggle with a 25x Unofficial Ark Cluster is that tribes can farm fast, build big and this has two problems:
      Big bases cause a lot of LAG New tribes don't stand a chance against the tribes who have built up already In the beginning EliteArk used to wipe every 2~4 weeks and this gave everyone a fair chance to build up and get started. The problem was that for many players it meant there was a very limited sense of progression, little point to breeding and after a few wipes it started to become very repetitive. This is why Ronnie came up with the idea of a Season - something very different to how most high rates unofficial ark servers are run.
      Seasons on EliteArk last for 3+ months. They allow tribes to keep their progression with lines, blueprints and resources. But it requires all the big tribes to regularly move their base to a new map if they want to keep their progression. This means that players playing for the whole season can keep their progress but it also means that tribes joining later into the season have a really good chance against the existing tribes. Each map during the season lasts for roughly 3~6 weeks. Once a map finishes a tribe must transfer all of their loot onto a different map if they want to keep it.
      Maps are wiped in a rotation. Normally only 2 or 3 maps of the 10+ maps wipe at any one time. This means you can safely move from one map to another without fear of that next map being wiped in the short-term. When a map is wiped, for the first 48 hours only characters can be transferred. This means that all tribes must fight fairly with only what they have obtained on that map - nobody can bring their dinos or blueprint items from elsehwere to give them an advantage. After the first 48hrs of a map all tribes receive Newbie Protection for 72hrs. This protection allows new tribes three days to continue to build up.
      For new tribes joining mid-way through a season you essentially have FIVE DAYS to get established if you join when a map wipes. For existing tribes it is a big task to move their base every 3~6 weeks. Having to move their base makes them vulnerable to other tribes and it means there is rarely just one big alpha tribe for the entire season.
      When the Season reaches its' end a total wipe takes place. This is where every single map is wiped and all tribes lose their characters, tames, blueprints and resources.
      This system has been tweaked but has proved incredibly popular. It caters to the smaller tribes and really gives them a fighting chance compared to the old system. It also keeps the larger tribes interested because they can properly enjoy the Ark end-game with huge raids, advanced breeding and all that goes with it.

      Please join us for Season 5 of EliteArk starting on 25th February 2020. This new season means a complete wipe of the Main 6 Man Cluster. All characters, tames, blueprints and structures will be wiped from all of the maps. This is your tribe's chance to start fresh and compete against all of the other tribes to see who can survive the whole season!
      At the start there will be 8+ Maps spread between North America (NA) and Europe (EU). Including FOUR Genesis servers (2 for NA + 2 for EU) and the classic maps including Ragnarok, Valguero, Center and Extinction. To give an advantage to tribes starting on Genesis the first week will have no transfers into Genesis except for your character. If Genesis is delayed by Wildcard then the DLC will be added as soon as it is available.
      As with every EliteArk Season except some key changes from Season 4. These will be announced closer to the launch via the Discord so make sure you are a member with Notifications turned on:
      https://discord.gg/XwBvXJ3
      Please note, only the Main 6 Man Cluster will be wiping on 25th February. For the Duo Cluster the wipe will only be conducted after a map hits extremely low population. Duo is not wiping with Genesis release. Duo will have a Genesis map added to their cluster as soon as Genesis is released though.
      Disclaimer: PLEASE keep in mind though, many factors can still force a wipe. IE. Bugs, Corruptions, mods, etc.

  • Welcome to EliteArk.com Ark Survival Evolved #1 unofficial server! We established this server August of 2015 with the idea of actually making a good unofficial server. We are the longest running populated server who has been running continuously with 1000s of different Ark players joining over the months. Personally, I joined numerous unofficial servers searching for a great server to join prior to starting EliteArk. I couldn't find any. Either there was nonstop Admin abuse, poor settings, interrupted service or bad rules. Here at Eliteark.com we eliminated all of that. Admin's DO NOT PLAY on the server nor will they ever interfere with pvp and tribe drama. Our Ark Survival Evolved Server is an overlocked 7700k 5.0 cpu with 64 gigs of 2400 ram and 2x 480g NVME harddrives. Our system specs are the best money can buy, everything else is on the Ark devs. So click the banner link up top to join our Ark Survival Server and let the mayhem begin!

  • We have been around for FIVE whole years straight for Ark Survival Evolved ! No other unofficial ark survival server has been around as consistently as Elite Ark has. We offer the most unique game play and rule set to completely offer our players a near perfect game play experience. Ark Survival is a very difficult game to host a ark server for. It is a very aggressive Ark survival evolved pvp play style. However, we do our best to maintain and constantly alter various rules and mods for Ark Survival Evolved. At the end of each wipe cycle, we always take a vote and democratically select various rule changes, settings and mods for Ark . We hope you enjoy your stay on Eliteark.com Ark server .
