ARKstuff began when DieselEffect was convinced by TheFujitaFive that we need to play this game called ARK that he had been watching on Neebs Gaming's YouTube channel. We eventually started playing on our own Non-Dedicated server and then moved to a friend's dedicated server, where we met our first Lead Administrator, Sir Lord Mr. Lion Manchester Jr. the Third, Esquire. We started our own player dedicated server on an extra Xbox One with help from THOR and played there for a while, which was difficult to manage, to say the least. Eventually, Nitrado started hosting Xbox servers, and here we are.
ARKstuff is owned and operated by DieselEffect.
What is ARKstuff?
ARKstuff started as and will always be primarily a community of fan servers for the Neebs Gaming community, but is open to absolutely everyone!
Whether you are a new player or someone with eighty gazillion hours on ARK, we'd love to have you here.
Currently ARKstuff is a group of 1 cluster of PVE, 1 dedicated Event Map on Xbox/Windows and 1 cluster of PVE servers on Steam. The clusters are CrossARK enabled so you can transfer your character, dinos & items to/from all of the maps freely. This does not mean PVE & PVP are clustered together. They are separate. Also, our clusters are Crossplay enabled so you can party with us from Xbox One or your PC using the Windows version of ARK: Survival Evolved. Steam is not capable of Crossplay with Xbox unfortunately.
ARKstuff Servers is funded in whole by our amazing community of players via our Patreon where every penny goes to server rental fees & other costs of keeping a large community online until the donations exceed the fees, in which case the entirety of the rest goes back to our friends at Neebs Gaming via public donation on their Thursday night twitch.tv streams!
