I was on last night and i didnt experience any of that, anyone else? would like to know if people didnt experience it, so we can isolate the issue.

I was on the PvP Island map, and did get a small amount of rubber banding but no more than I get on official OC servers.

I would recommend that people who get rubber banding do a trace-route or similar to check that your modem isn't suffering packet loss. I know for a fact that my modem does have some packet loss, and this causes occasional desync with the servers causing rubber banding.

Ark by default has rubber banding issues, and this is exacerbated by server connections over distance.

I actually thought the PvP cluster ran quite well, better than the pre-wipe servers.

There are a number of VPN Gaming 'tunnels' that can be used, I personally use WTFast, however these cost about $3 a month. This is not advertising their product, it helps my connection most times but not all, and I have friends that it has not helped at all, so it's not for everyone and a trial is recommended first.

I got some banding and a few timeout DCs but nothing more than usual.

At this point Munki has the premier Ark server in the country. it pretty much all comes down to crappy code now. If/when they optimize it for real things like banding might stop.

50-60 ping solid.

The resource stacks mod doesn't seem to be working on the scorched earth PVP cluster server as everything is at default stack sizes E.G 100 wood / 200 fiber rather then the increased amounts.

Edit: Scorched earth resource stacks is working fine for sand/cactus sap etc its just the default items that aren't.

This plus also I've tried twice to bring over silk to the island and both times it has disappeared.

40 Player cap on PVP Cluster sucks, recommend lifting to 60 because full tribes can't get on as is and if it's going to be this active then more people are gonna start joining when they have a chance to, now that it's been wiped, that we're gonna seriously need the increase.

Haven't been able to get on today thanks to full server & as it stands right now it's "44/40".
