AP 98: Arena of Gods, Logs Hurt Small Tribes, Giga Stories
This week, Wildcard changed its position on turning the Small tribe servers into clusters and they also checked out a battle royale mod called Arena of Gods on the COmmunity Livestream. If that isn’t enough, 50,50 troubles are still here and do tribe logs empower large tribes but hurt small and solo tribes?

AP 97: SE Titans, Arthro Dmg Metal & Tek, Leaving the Beach
This week’s patch has the Official PvP Community frothing at the mouth as the Titan comes to Scorched Earth and the arthropleura can now destroy metal and TEK structures. If that weren’t enough small tribe servers will be turned into small clusters, in the wake of Sony’s Fortnite Fiasco, Wildcard reiterates that cross-platform will not be a thing for the PlayStation, and the fresh servers have been released into the Official Network!

AP 96: CoC Changes, Crafting 101, New DLC in 2019?
Some more changes have been made to the Code of Conduct for the small tribe servers and Wildcard finds itself having to enforce the rules.

AP #95: Analyzing Extinction Trailer, 1v1 PvP
This week Wildcard released a trailer for Extinction, ARK: Survival Evolved’s final DLC, and it is pretty much all the crew can talk about as they spend about an hour analyzing the trailer and any other information about it. Oh, and they discuss what weapons and gear to bring to a 1v1 PvP situation.

Episode 94: ARKaeology Event, Fortitude, and Fossil Mounds
This week the mysterious countdown during the week of E3 finally ended but, rather than being the release date or trailer for Extinction, the ARKaeology Event was announced. A new section was added to the Code of Conduct regarding the small tribe servers, there is a new countdown on the official ARK website, fortitude gets a re-work among other changes in the latest patch, and then the crew provides information on looking for those fossil mounds.

ARKeologist’s Podcast 93: Small Tribes, Misconceptions
ARKeologist’s Podcast 93: Structure Changes Nixxed, Small Servers Launched, and Early ARK Misconceptions It was a close call this week as Wildcard announced a upcoming structure change only to quickly nix the idea after instant public feedback against the idea. The new small tribe servers have launched and seem to be successful, additional changes to the Code of Conduct, and the crew talk about their Early ARK Misconceptions.

ARKeologist’s Podcast 92: Extinction E3, ARK is 3, Pets PvP
Lot to talk about this week. No sooner were we asking ourselves if ARK: Extinction would be announced at this year’s E3 when Wildcard offered up a teaser image, the game is now three years old, there were some changes made to the Code of Conduct, and if that wasn’t enough Battleye released a new EULA. After all of that, the crew sits down to discuss which shoulder pet is best when it comes to PvP and why.

ARKeologist’s Podcast 91: Positive, Mindwipe, Player Stat
It’s been a fairly quiet week. Though not for the PvP tribe Bloody Mary who got a bloody nose as two of their servers were dev-wiped in a small enforcement action. Also, Wildcard dished out free mindwipes, the second Community Stream involved some PvP tips, Specialty Servers are almost upon us and we still don’t know what that will involve in terms of game modes, and we talk about player stats and if they have changed with the new armor weight.

ARKeologist’s Podcast 90: Tribe Sizes, Prone Exploit, and Horses
It has been a quiet week content-wise for the game. No new patch was released, the third great migration for Legacy servers was announced, Wildcard asked its players what tribe size everyone enjoys and we discuss whether or not this might be a precursor to something more, and then we will be talking about the Equus in our ARK Avenue segment.

ARKeologist’s Podcast 89: Armor Weight, TEA Wiped, Body Bags
Following on the heels of the large ban/dev wipe, Wildcard was at it again and this time TEA was served. But that wasn’t all this week, a little patch went out that could have some big impact on the PvP meta, the devs announced new Specialty servers, NoNoNo has been accused of using a Discord bot to steal information, and then there will be a discussion about the game’s worst-kept secret...body bags.

ARKeologist’s Podcast 88: Ban Wipe, TEA Tribe, Boat Life
There has been a Major upheaval in the PvP community this week. Out of the blue Wildcard locked down a number of servers which resulted in them dev wiping a number of tribes and banning people especially from the BLDX alliance. However, there was one big tribe that was left out of this ban wave that has everyone demanding an explanation from Wildcard and allegations that the Chinese tribe is being protected by Wildcard’s parent company Snail Games. Oh, and we will also talk about the boat life this week.

ARKeologist’s Podcast 87: ACCC, Invisibility, and Bows
This week the consoles finally got the the second Dino TLC Pass, though not the up-to-date version with the PC which is cause for some ire among the console community. In addition, Wildcard has announced that it will be doing a weekly Community Live Stream, the crew talks about Valve’s loss regarding Australia’s Consumer Right’s Case and whether or not ARK: Survival Evolved would qualify for a refund under those conditions, and a discussion about bows and their effectiveness when it comes to PvP ensues.

ARKeologist’s Podcast 86 Code of Conduct, Politicking, SE 51
This has been a frustrating week for the game. No sooner did Wildcard release a new Code of Conduct for it then they quickly refused to enforce those new rules. Instead, tribes violating the new Code of Conduct seemed to get a free pass as the fight over Scorched Earth 51 finally came to an end. The crew also offered some advice for solo players who might be looking to join a big tribe and lamented that there were no new updates for the PC version due to Wildcard focusing on releasing the Dino TLC #2 for consoles Join our Discord Channel! - https://discord.gg/FKqPUc5 Follow me on Twitter - https://twitter.com/SeanDKnight Follow me on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com Support me on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/SeanDKnight Donate via PayPal - https://www.paypal.me/SeanDKnight

In this episode we’ll be talking about what we think about the Easter event so far and upgrading your base. No patch notes to discuss since it has only been a few days since episode 83 was posted, so this might be a shorter episode than normal.

Quite a few things were announced this week. Unsurprisingly Wildcard’s Chinese owner, Snail Games, has been busy milking all it can from the ARK brand with the release of PixARK Early Access and ARK Park on Steam. In addition, the Easter Event was revealed, ARK: Survival Evolved is coming to the Nintendo Switch, we’ll also talk about further impressions with the second Dino TLC, and talk about traps and their usefulness in PvP.

ARKeologist’s Podcast 80: #BadART4BadARK, Parasaur TLC, Aberration Item Transfers, Farming Resources This was a huge week for many reasons. The #BadArt4BadARK movement went through some twists and turns as Wildcard didn’t know how to handle it properly before coming to a decision, the TLC Preview for the parasaur was released, and item transfers was opened up to Aberration resulting in raiders and griefers immediately trying to ransack the servers. But that was not all, in this week’s ARK Avenue segment the crew talks about farming for resources.

A large, unannounced patch was released this week and the crew spends some time trying to figure out what the exploit was. On top of patching the exploit, Wildcard claimed that a lot of mega tribes were using it, but are granting everyone a general amnesty rather than punishing people. Other discussions revolve around the Silencer changes not coming to Official servers and the crew revisits the debate about whether or not things are balanced when it comes to offense vs defense.
