Hi ArkFam i was curious to know whether you will choose to implement crossplay when ark becomes an xbox play anywhere title in the near future? (apparently when they release abberation) They have stated it will be up to the server host via a check box in the control panel.
Once it gets implemented and proven not to negatively effect the servers then we might try it out to see how it works depending on how the ArkFam community feels about it. We will run a community poll to see what the ArkFam community thinks before we make a final decision. I personally feel that the console playing community has a different playing mentality and there is a very large chunk of them that are more incline to be aggressive and possibly cancerous to our server. But we would be open to give it a try and see how things work out if the community is interested in it. Worst case we can always pull the plug.
I totally understand where you're coming from, the people i know and want to join are nothing like those but i do realise you need to look at the big picture and respect the fact you are thinking of your regulars first. The fact that you will consider it in the future is enough for me and i will ask no more. I'm currently really enjoying my time on your server and would like it to live on and thrive as it has done for so long.
