Hello Team 6ix Survivors! 

As the title of this thread states we are planning a scheduled wipe for all PvP servers! This will be a one time thing* and will initiate a fresh start of our COMPLETE 5 Server/Map cluster for our PvP survivors! That's right! Team 6ix Gaming will now have The Island, Abberation, Ragnarok, Scorched Earth, and The Center! 

You may be asking why? Why this? Why now? We've spent a lot of time on here! Don't worry! We understand you all have put in a lot of time and effort into the servers and would absolutely hate to see it all disappear! For all of our survivors that have stuck it out with us over these last few months and are currently built up on one of the Team 6ix PvP servers, you will receive a small incentive to return to our servers after the wipe has been initiated. Nothing game breaking, nor giving a heavy advantage over other survivors. Just some things to take the edge off for all your hard work before the wipe. 

This wipe is being initiated because we have finally purchased the remaining servers/maps we were missing for our PvP Cluster. It would be very wrong to add brand new servers to a cluster that has servers with over 3000+ in-game days on them already. Doing this wipe, all PvP servers will start fresh on a level playing field with an equal amount of actual game days instead of 500+ day gaps.

Also a very big concern for the past couple months has been new players not really wanting to even join one of our PvP 
servers because of the amount of days they have on them. Some players don't like joining a server when other survivors have had over 3000+ in-game days to build up and get strong. Doing this will also help bring new survivors to the PvP side of the house making our PvP community much bigger and that means more ACTION! 

Wiping of our servers will not come very often. This is only being done because we completed the 5 server cluster. Don't think that we will be wiping the servers every few months because its not how we intend to run things! Your time matters! Our staff has dumped well over 250+ hours into our PvP servers! We're in the same boat! PLEASE post any questions, comments or concerns on this thread. If this is something that strikes a nerve and is making you furious please send me a PM and we can get it sorted! 

This wipe will be initiated March 18th around 10:00pm MST. This will take some time as we migrate information and settings to the new servers. A reply will be made on this thread informing everyone when this is complete. 

*Custom Drops will not be available on the PvP servers until on or before April 1st! 
*Starter & Wiped packages will be removed for the time being.
*Starting the month of May Free For All (FFA) weekends will be making a return this will be a one time event each month. 

You will also see a bunch of new servers listed when searching for Team6ix in the search box however they will be password protected and not join-able until March 18th!

Is this a wipe as in all our characters and items get wiped as well? Also, any clues as to what the incentive to return is, if all that will be gone as well?

The wipe will reset the server to day one. This will delete everything. Everyone would be starting fresh on a brand new server. The appreciate kit/incentive to continue playing will be given out during the following week of the wipe.
The Appreciation Kit will include:
1 Perfect Tamed Trike
1 Perfect Tamed Pteranadon
Some misculanious Items

Is there going to be anything done about paid items? Could those possibly be included in the "miscellaneous items"?

Sorry posted this on the wrong form at first but what I’m saying is make the new severs obelisk be turn off for a week maybe even a month so new people have time build before older guilds come and do not wipe the old severs so you have the choice of starting fresh or the challenge of starting off with pre-existing tribes and if you want make it where new guys have a even better chance still you could make it pve during the week and pvp on the weekend.

Team 6ix Gaming doesn’t sell items on Ark for real life currency. Players that donate to the community recieve in-game gifts. Those gifts are a thank you from Team 6ix Gaming. If players wish to donate again to the community they will always recieve a in-game gift with their contribution.

We appreciate the feedback and understand your concerns. However, some of our PvP servers have thousands of in-game days on them and this is a huge driving factor that deters new survivors from joining the servers. As most of our long time members know, the servers have been slowly dying out because of the larger tribes eventually taking over and owning prime base locations. We have lost numerous larger tribes because of the population dropping drastically. Not to mention gaining new survivors that want to build up on a server with massive tribes already established is like finding a needle in a haystack.
We understand that our members have dedicated a good amount of time on these servers but Team 6ix Staff has done just the same. This wipe will enable all servers to be on a level playing field and give everyone a second chance at grabbing that base location they wanted, building a better base, or even meeting new survivors to play along side with or compete for alpha. This is to new beginnings!

My only issue is I wish it was today so we had the weekend to play. It’ll be almost the whole week before I can play again due to work and family stuff through the week.

We would have but we're already giving less than a 3 day notice to our PvP Players. To completely wipe the servers hours after announcing it would be pretty messed up. That is why we've allotted the weekend for currently players to do what they've been waiting to do or finish up something they've wanted to complete before wiping occurs. This also allows us the time to prep the new servers and get everything set up.

You have a really good point. I wish it was being done before a weekend as well.

We may be pushing the wipe and new servers out tonight.

The PvP servers seemed to have blow themselves up enough already
Both Abberation and The Island have been sitting at 0 Players most of the day and Ragnarok is currently sitting at 2. The chaos didn't last as long as we thought it would!
