We pride ourselves on having a great community of ARK players.

Our ARK Servers

Our servers are hosted on a dedicated server based in a London data centre, which was custom built for our needs.

The Ark maps run several well balanced mods that enhance the gaming experience without breaking basic ARK principles and strategies. We recommend to install the Maelstrom mods collection prior connecting our servers for the first time, to minimize timeout issues during server connection.

I have to admit this is one of the best ARK servers. In discord and ingame are the most amazing friendly and helpful people i think i have ever met on ARK, lots of banter and laughs. I definitely recommend this server to anyone looking for a great time! Admins are always helpful and very friendly.

I have played both official and private servers, but I really find myself loving this server. Rates arent crazy, aint no mods to make the game easy and everyone is always helping each other so much. This server cluster is well tuned that there is always something to do, always fun to be had.
