How do I get a Starter Kit?

To get your Starter Kit, you must join our discord. Once there, only a few Public channels will be visible to you.

First Read Our Rules

You must first read our #rules. At the bottom of the first-and-only-post in that channel, you will see a section entitled, REQUIRED. There is a small green square emoji with a white checkmark in the center at the bottom of that section. Click this emoji to acknowledge that you want to play on our server and you will automatically be assigned the role of Game Member.

Open a Support Ticket

Once you have your Game Member role, you will see more channels available to you. Click on the #create-ticket channel and then click the green OPEN A SUPPORT TICKET button. Creating a Support ticket will open a new, private channel that only you and our staff can read. In this channel state what support issue you have. In this case, you want a Starter Kit. That’s it! Wait for our staff to respond and coordinate receiving your kit with you.

Skyfall PvX

Skyfall is now running a PvX server. A true PvX, with a rectangular PvP zone in the center of the map and PvE to the outside regions. This decision was made due to the rampant griefers maliciously wiping servers with hacks.

You may, of course, build in either zone. Skyfall admins will continue to keep our numerous events PvP oriented by positioning them at least in part in the PvP zone. The PvP Zone will have rewards that offer rare and premium loot such as Tek, Eerie Turrets, Collars, OP Tames, and more to encourage play there.

Having switched to a PvX format, abandoned structures in PvE are no longer able to removed by other players with force. Therefore, we will very soon be activating Structure Decay. This means you must refresh your structures weekly as on official servers. Likewise, your tames must be refreshed regularly as well or they will go wild.

Skyfall Builders will also be more prolific with their Raidable Base building. Generally, tougher bases will be deeper into the PvP zone and have better loot. Do not be surprised to occasionally see Skyfall Builder players defending their assets. As a reminder, these events are the only time in which you may attack Skyfall staff.

Can I Get Stuff from the Admins?

The Short Answer is “no”. We do not interfere in normal gameplay except to enforce our #rules or when running a community events. We will not change it to daylight hours or kill dinosaurs for you or help you get your stuff from a cave. We do not give out free anything to our players individually. Especially if you ask. That is likely to get you ignored. Just as players do not like newbies “begging”, so it goes with Game Administrators. We want to treat all players fairly and as equally as possible so we do not give out things that are not available to others.

Starter Kits

We do offer Starter Kits to players new to our server. Just some basic, primitive essentials. They are offered one-time only. If you would like a Starter Kit, create a support ticket in our #create-ticket discord channel.

Player Event Loot

We host player community events that often offer excellent loot as prizes. Resources, gear, dinos, etc. Lots of it is Ascendant quality.

Loot Requests

We have a #loot-request channel on our Discord server. This channel is for players to request specific loot in our server community events. Your requests are not guaranteed to be honored but we take them into consideration when deciding on loot for our player events.

Community Events

Skyfall PvX hosts several fun and novel community events on a regular basis. Two of our newest are detailed below:

PvP Scavenger Hunts

We host regular PvP Scavenger Hunts. Use a custom interface right here on our website to get pictures of locations on the island you must recognize and find. Or to get instructions on tasks you must complete. All the while, fighting off (or running from) attacks from your fellow contestants! [Read more…]

Maze

Skyfall has constructed the largest, physical maze known in Ark Mobile. It is over 700 square tiles of enigmatic mayhem. The structure is so large, we actually hit Structure Limit in it’s design and had to shave off a few tiles. Dangers of all kinds ( and loot!) can be found inside the Maze. You might find the greatest danger of all to be your fellow contestants. [Read more…]

So You Want To Be A Game Admin

As of the writing of this post, we have three Game Administrators that have all played Official together. That is more than enough for a small community, still growing. We are not taking on anymore at the present, so please do not ask. We will surely make clear announcements when we need more. Instead, offer some ideas on how to grow the population on our server; How to improve the gameplay of our existing community. That will get our attention.

Game Admin Trust

Game Admins have extra capabilities ingame that other players do not. An unscrupulous Game Admin could give unfair advantage to particular players and so you need trustworthy people to fulfill that role. We will not be taking on people we don’t know in that capacity. If you really want to be at the top of our list when we may need a Game Admin in the future, give us a chance to get to know you. Play with us. Communicate in our discord. Contribute to the community as a player first.

“But I Want to Help the Server Grow”

The most common reason we get for wanting to become a Game Admin is, “I really like this server and want to help it grow”. If you really want to help us grow, there are other ways to go about this that don’t involve the risk of having a stranger take on the role of Game Admin. Share some of your ideas with us and we may have a spot (or create one) for you on our team.

“I Have Some Great Ideas”

I often hear, “I have some great ideas for improving the server but don’t know how to explain it. Why don’t you just give me a try and I’ll show you”. An inability or unwillingness to articulate your ideas is a sure-fire way to get us to lose interest in your candidacy for our team.
