    Our new website is now live!

    Next Features:

    • User Panel - Players can view their points, lootboxes, quests and co via the user interface.
    • More Content - We will try to provide all information to the servers on the website.
    • Bug Fixes - Please inform Sly on Discord, if there is any issue with the website.

    New Support Policy

    We will make a big change to our support policy starting now. Support response time is always a big topic in our community discord, and we know that sometimes tickets take hours or days, sometimes even a week to get solved. The biggest reasons for that is people not including the needed information or asking for help in minor problems.


    To focus more on the important tickets that affect the gameplay and have a much shorter response time in urgent cases, the following changes will apply now.

    There will be no support for:

    • Replacing kits, lootboxes or dino boxes because of server rollbacks, missclicks or bugs in any way.
    • Replacing your inventory or cryod dinos because of server rollbacks or bugs in any way.
    • Helping you or your dino getting unstuck from any location. If your dino is inside the mesh try to upload it with a Transmitter, if your player gets stuck use /suicide.
    • Forcejoining a player into a tribe for any reason.
    • Enabling engrams from Road to Alpha in any situation. If you did not get the engrams you did not meet the requirements for it.
    • Replacing items or dinos lost to insiding. Everything belongs to the tribe owner. It’s your own responsibility to invite people in to your tribe that you trust.
    • (Problems with items bought in our webshop will still be supported!

    Tickets about these cases, crashed servers, asking when a cluster wipes or without the basic information will be closed without an answer from the Bloody Ark Team


    Tips for faster support:

    • Give us as much information about your case as you can.
    • Follow the ticket guideline and always include the following: Cluster, Map, Steam64ID
    • Do not DM admins. This will lower your ticket priority.

    We hope with this changes we can ensure our community a better and faster support!
