    The problem is based on your connection with the server. There's nothing we can do from our end.

    You seem to be from Belgium, and the server is based in the Netherlands(neighboring countries for those who don't know ). So it's not a geographical issue where you are too far away.

    Since it seems you are the only person having this issue right now, I'd suggest you troubleshoot your connection:
    • Are people in your household doing bandwidth intensive things while you are gaming? (torrents, netflix, Steam downloads, etc.) As far as I know there aren't any good ISP's in Belgium so it might be something that doesn't seem to be a big deal but might be just enough to cause connection issues for you.
    • Did you try the obvious things like power cycle your router?
    • Are you on WiFi or are you using a wired connection?
    • If you ping our server, do you get packet loss? If so, try doing a tracert to see at which hop the packet loss occurs.

    Stuff like that.

    i have always 15-23 ping
    I just asked the server who it still has and I'm not alone I have aleen on happydiggers servers when I looked over it was about people with their own server and the solution was sometimes not up to date at the server or Bad mod or bad settings, I've really tried everything if you know anything else
    thank you in advance

    Did you try deleting ARK from your computer and downloading it again?

    Yes, I completely delete it until the last file itself checked manually so completely and then reinstalled nothing helped

    I've never played Ark on another public server except for Happy Diggers, so I don't have much experience, but compared to other network games, Ark seems to be very prone to dropping connections. It looks like the more complicated the stuff you do or the situation around you (lots of dinos, dinos fighting), the smaller lag is needed to drop you.

    I've played quite a lot on Happy Diggers MC servers and never had any issues with connections. I have very good internet connection at home (for the money I have to pay for it, it better be good ). And yet 2-5 disconnects per afternoon session of Ark is a norm...

    I learned to live with it. It's much better now since they introduced death beacon and updated it to also shine from your backpack.

    i still got the problem and tried everything and i now its just happydiggers server form me, can you maybe check server settings?
    Dont now what i can do its the only option left. (and there are a lot of people with the problem, it can maybe make server populair when its fixed, because i now a few left for it)
