Server Features and About CA2

Welcome to CrossARK2!  CA2 is our second cluster and currently features 11 mods.  This cluster aims to provide a solid base play of ARK without allowing mods to detract from the core PVE experience.  Players benefit from the increased harvest, taming, and experience rates as well as many additional quality of life features.

CA2 includes all Official Maps: Island, Scorched Earth, Aberration, Extinction, Center, Ragnarok, and Valguero. Travel freely between servers, bringing your items and creature pals with you!
Although the cluster is PVE, tribes may agree upon PVP together for a predetermined amount of time!

As a personal opinion, if you are new to ARK, I suggest you look into playing on CA1 our No-Mod cluster.  The mods we feature on this cluster introduce many new items and mechanics that are not a part of the vanilla core-game. Therefore I recommend learning the core mechanics of ARK to give the player a better understanding of what is ARK and what is from a Mod.
