Hey Admin, it seems that the Ark Ragnarok expansion is starting to become a major component of Ark gameplay. Most players, all things being equal seem to prefer it, almost any dino you can tame on the island is available there, plus a couple popular exclusives. Many of the Ark YouTubers I follow seem to be spending as much or more time on Ragnarok now as the Island. All that to say, would you consider adding Ragnarok to the server cluster ahead of the map being fully finished? A finish date has yet to be announced (as far as I know), and most of us I think realize the potential dangers of playing on a map that the devs may decide to make changes to. After all, we have stuck with this early access game this long. I don't mean to sound pushy or anything. Just asking you to weigh the pros and cons and consider it. Thanks
Too buggy of a map, and completion is not done atm. Patience is a virtue! Also changes to map and people will cry to have the admin, who gives us his time and money of said server for free, would have to try to fix these things. Like new Biome and your base was there and got wiped.

I agree with Dudus and YourBr. I am itching for Ragnarock like all of you but, it will be well worth the wait to let it be finished first. I am not interested in building bases and taming things just to have them wiped for glitches or changes to the map. I know it is hard to wait when we see all the other people on the map. I think that a lot of their effort to build something worthwhile will take twice as much effort/ time than us when it finally becomes available.
Adding an unfinished map which continually has problems and glitches would add a big strain on us. We would have to monitor three maps with the third constantly needing attention, in addition to opening up players that would blindly join the server to possible future heart break in the event the area they spent time building in was to be wiped out when the full map goes live. We will not add the map until it's complete. For anyone that can't wait they are free to join any of the other 2k+ servers already running the map, we will not be offended. In the end you have to do what you think is best for yourself and your gaming enjoyment as we have a duty to our players to do our best in giving them the best possible playing experience of any Ark server. So as such we will continue to do what we think is best for our servers and their players and right now that means holding off on adding the map until it is complete.
I have played extensively on Ragnarok and it is honestly a work of art. However, it isn't finished and as such will cause problems once it is finished. When they update it, things will change in the active areas and players will lose alot. I would love to see Ragnarok her eon Arkfam.com However lets be safe and wait until its completed.
WiiDad reinforces why Admin is doing it the right way. Some people want it the map now since it's out, but would be really mad if like in the Castle area they turn into the Volcano in The Island. Remember ya could build there? Now, you can't. Plus anyone that did build there, lost a majority of their resources having to take everything down.
