  1. It's here! We've updated the store for a weekly item cycle. To start, we've added 1 item and 1 creature. We plan to cycle out different items and creatures every Monday. We have also set limited the quantities available to prevent an unlimited amount of store bought items from entering the server ecosystem. Also to note, as of current, if you wish to purchase any COTA Credits, please do so via the "Buy Credits" feature that displays with your current credit balance. Any questions, issues, or recommendations please be sure to contact us!
  2. Which harvest rate do you like the most?
  3. We have upgraded our Discord integration which will require you to re-sync your account. Please do this by going to the Discord section of your Account Settings. If you are unable to find it, visit the link below: https://community.cultoftheark.com/settings/login/?service=12
  4. With the release of the newest map Valguero coming (hopefully) tomorrow we will be starting Season 5 for COTA! We will reset all of our servers when the new map is officially released. The new map will be replacing our Scorched Earth server. This will come with a new (and slightly improved) Challenge Pass. It will relatively consist of the same idea with challenges and XP. We'll be holding off on releasing challenges immediately as we want to get more of a feel for the new map and make our challenges and rewards based off what new things it brings to ARK. For our new players and those who might not remember, the reset process for a new season is as follows below: As a method of allowing people to carry on their hard work, we will be allowing players to upload items and tames into the obelisk to carry over to the new season. This is intended to allow those who have found that "perfect" blueprint or that 100th generation tame they've worked to continue existence and not be wiped away with a complete reset. With this reset system and our Challenge Pass, server resets will occur every 3 months or in the event of a new map release, marking a new season and new Challenge Pass. What can you bring? You will be able to bring whatever you have with you that can fit into the Obelisk. This includes 50 item slots and 20 creatures per Gamertag that can be uploaded into the obelisk. You will not be able to bring your character though. For clarity, items uploaded to the obelisk are linked to your Gamertag, not your game character. Also, for those who might think it's not allowed, you can use an alt account if you wish to hoard more stuff. ❤️ Cult of the ARK Staff
  5. Info With Season 4 we are introducing our all new COTA Challenge Pass. This will allow players to earn rewards in a new way. Below you will find the weekly challenges as well as the rewards for achieving a certain level. This level system is based in our Discord so you will need to be a part of our Discord to receive XP, level up, and gain rewards. Since this is the first iteration of this system, we will be making constant improvements to it as needed. Be sure to give us your feedback on this new system and share your thoughts and opinions via here or our Discord. You must claim the Season 4 Challenge pass for free in our store by visiting the item link below. This will give you the Season 4 Challenger title both on our forums and Discord as well as allow you to receive rewards and XP for completing challenges and leveling up. To claim your rewards, please be sure to send a unique picture to myself (@Kuma) or @Bring Me the Verizon via our Discord in a Direct Message. This picture must be unique to you containing the challenge completion. If you completed a challenge as a tribe, please be sure to include your tribe members and tribe name either in the picture or via an additional message.

  6. The moment everyone has been waiting for is soon upon us. We'll be kicking off COTA's Season 4 on May 1st. Be sure to read this post for all the info on what's happening. Changes Store: Starting May 1st, players will no longer be able to receive COTA Credits when making a donation. Players can still receive COTA Credits when they subscribe to our Ascendant Status pass. Please read the item details of each pass for more info on what it provides you as well as how many COTA credits you receive per subscription term. Making this decision was difficult as, yes, it does significantly increase the chances of someone supporting our community, however, it did have some glaring drawbacks. The most common one that everyone can agree on is a sense of "pay to win". To make clear, the Server Store will remain, all the items currently available to buy for COTA Credits will remain, as it is still our community currency. You will still be able to earn COTA Credits via gameplay as well as subscribing to our Ascendant Status pass or completing REDACTED during each COTA Season. At this point through the generous contributions of our current donors and once depleted, via my own finances, I will ensure the Cult of the ARK community stays for years to come. The option to support our community will remain as it is if you do enjoy what we provide and want to help out, but you just won't receive COTA Credits for doing so...only my eternal gratitude and the other bonuses already granted with the various donator statuses. Server Settings: Our Season 4 beta settings are live on our servers as of this post on our regular servers. Please be sure to check them out and give us feedback on any changes you feel may be needed. To give an overview: Harvest was changed from 8x to 14x, Taming speed was increased from 7x to 14x, crafting requirements for base resources such as Cementing Paste, Polymer, Gunpowder, and a few others have been reduce to make them less tedious to make. Our custom drops have been nerfed per popular request, yet still are intended to be better than vanilla drops. Player Food/Water drain has basically been eliminated so you won't need to stop what you're doing to chug a gallon of water or find food every 5 minutes. The Obelisk timer has been increased from 24 hours to 14 days to allow players to utilize the Ob to store items they don't want to lose. The intent of this is to replace our Weekday/Weekend settings as we'll be removing these. With the extended ob timer, say you go to work/school or are on vacation for a week, your most important items will be safe in the obelisk and waiting for you. Reset Process: As a method of allowing people to carry on their hard work, we will be allowing players to upload items and tames into the obelisk to carry over to the new season. This is intended to allow those who have found that "perfect" blueprint or that 100th generation tame they've worked to continue existence and not be wiped away with a complete reset. With the introduction of our new reset system and our REDACTED, server resets will occur every 3 months, marking a new season and new REDACTED. What can you bring? You will be able to bring whatever you have with you that can fit into the Obelisk. This includes 50 item slots and 20 creatures per Gamertag that can be uploaded into the obelisk. You will not be able to bring your character though. For clarity, items uploaded to the obelisk are linked to your Gamertag, not your game character. Also, for those who might think it's not allowed, you can use an alt account if you wish to hoard more stuff. For our older players who might be used to COTA Credit rebates, we are retiring that system due to the introduction of allowing players to transfer some items with them to the new season. Wrap-up: To end off, we'll have another announcement on May 1st regarding REDACTED which will introduce the new season and all the info you'll need to know about REDACTED. Sadly our Fiber servers will be discontinued on May 1st. We are shifting our full focus and resources to our 6 map cluster in order to revive and sustain our community for the future. We're sad to announce this as I know there are some dedicated Fiber players, however hopefully you'll give our servers a try come Season 4 and see how you like it. As you can see with the reduced crafting requirements we're aiming for a more "EasyCraft/HybridCraft" which will take the pain and tediousness away yet still allow for an enjoyable and satisfactory grind. We don't want to alienate our current players, yet we still want to make our servers more accessible for more potential players. As always, if you have any questions or issues, be sure to reach out to us. The best method is via our Discord. ~ ❤️ Cult of the ARK Staff
  7. As we're all aware, changes need to be made to our drops. What aspects do you like about our current custom drops, and what kind of items would you like to see added and/or removed from the drops? Generally the direction would be to nerf them overall.
  8. Target Info: Tribe Name: DCKofFury, Location: Unknown, but presumably on Regular Island. Bounty Length: Until Claimed Requirement(s) to Claim Bounty (Purpose of Bounty): Sorry for no coords, don't have time to look. But to claim simply wipe their base and screenshot a before and after picture. Keep anything you'd like from the raid. Extra 5k COTA Credits for all turret ammo Bounty Set by: @Xz0Nightmare0zX The user who set the bounty must confirm the bounty has been completed for the reward to be claimed.
  9. Happy Holidays everyone! Yes, I know we're a day off but we hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and got to spend it with those who matter most to you. To end off the year, we'll be having a discount on all In-Server Store Items for 19% off when you use code 2019 at checkout! This will run until the year is over. From us to you, enjoy a 10,000 COTA Credit gift ❤️ I know the ending of this year has been pretty quiet however, we're working on some things you'll all hopefully enjoy to bring into the new year! We'll see you all in 2019. ❤️ Cult of the ARK Staff

  11. Black Friday Discount We hope everyone who celebrated had an enjoyable Thanksgiving. But now, it's time for some huge discounts! Use the discount code "BF2018" upon checkout to get 50% off ALL In-Server store items! This discount will last from now through Monday the 26th. Store Updates We've added the much requested Cryopod, Cryofridge, and Scout to the store under the Tek category. We've also changed Armor, Quality Weapons, and individual Saddles (excluding Tek Saddles) to be Blueprints. If you've bought a any of the aforementioned items after the Season 3 gear tier changes, please DM me via here or Discord so we can exchange them for a blueprint of the same tier. We're glad to see everyone enjoying the Fiber servers and the new Extinction DLC!
  12. Green drops now contain the starter pack. A ringed green drop contain double for a two person starter pack. The quality is around apprentice level, even though it shows up as master craft or higher. We haven't seen anything broken or what would actually be a mastercraft level of gear yet. Please let me know if you do see any extreme armor numbers as it shouldn't be too powerful from the green drops.

    Thanks!

  15. Welcome everyone to Cult of the ARK's 3rd season! For those who are new or may not know, our seasons are defined by every time we do a fresh full reset of our servers. This doesn't happen very often and is only for when the community really needs it. With that being said, we're hoping this will be our best season yet! Alright, time to get down to what's new, and what's changed. Please be sure to read this post in its entirety. The following is a change log of everything we've changed or are introducing with this season. Store Changes: All Tek (including element), and the Titanosaur has been removed from the store. The new Season 3 Starter Pack has been added to the store. All players can get one: https://community.cultoftheark.com/store/product/665-season-3-starter-pack/ The Gear Tier system and rework has been implemented into the store. Details are here: https://community.cultoftheark.com/gear-tiers/ Boss Arena packages have been added to the store. You can view them here: https://community.cultoftheark.com/store/category/62-boss-arena-packages/ The Tek version of creatures option has been added to the appropriate creatures in the store. Server & Community: The "Our Servers" page has been adjusted to match our Season 3 server setup: https://community.cultoftheark.com/servers/ or if you want the "fancier version" you can see it here: https://cultoftheark.com/#servers Artifact Cave building is now allowed. Server rules have been changed. Read them here: https://community.cultoftheark.com/topic/17-server-rules/ Auto Dino/Structure decay has been enabled to keep the servers cleaner long term. Fishing loot quality has been increased. Some additions have been made to the About Our Servers post, giving details about the different clusters and the new Weekday/Weekend settings process: https://community.cultoftheark.com/topic/6-about-our-servers/ Our Community Rules have been changed. Read them here: https://community.cultoftheark.com/topic/18-community-rules/ Our Discord rules have changed, view them in our Discord. Coming Soon - Tribe Challenges. We weren't able to finalize this for the Season 3 launch sadly, but they're coming! These will be challenges that your tribe can complete to earn COTA Credits. Now, to wrap things up, with every server reset, users will receive 50% of their total spent COTA Credits from the previous season after each new season begins. Please send me a private message here on the site (not via Discord) in regards to your Season 2 50% COTA Credit rebate. You will have until September 30th, 2018 to message me regarding your Season 2 50% rebate otherwise you'll be out of luck. Starting tomorrow, the 14th through the 30th, I will be processing rebates for those who message me. It'll be first-come-first-serve. Another important note, we will not be delivering In-Server store orders until September 28th, 2018 with the exception of Starter Packs. This will allow 2 weeks for players to get setup without store items. You are welcome to place your orders in the meantime, as once the 2 week suspension is over, we will begin delivering orders in the order they were placed. If you wish to receive your Starter Pack before the store suspension is over, please order it separately from any other store items. Well, we hope you'll enjoy Season 3! We're feeling great about the improvements we've made and the future of our community for the years to come. Our advertisement department is in full force, but we can't do it alone. So spread the word about our community! ❤️ - Cult of the ARK Staff
