Last Week In ARK

In this week’s update, we take a look at bans and average deaths per server (PvE and PvP) over the past seven days.
There were a total of 732 bans this week between the enforcement team and BattleEye. The Enforcement team bans are done manually after investigation for various infractions of our Code of Conduct and BattlEye’s bans are implemented for detection of third party software/cheats.
We are curious as to why our Xbox players have so many PvE deaths. Haha!

EVO Event

There will be no EVO event this week. The next upcoming EVO event will be on February 11th.
