ARK Server is lagging
With "lagging" you mean the delay of the connection. This term is particularly common among players of online games. The player receives his data packets with a slight delay and is therefore at a disadvantage compared to players with a much lower delay.
The cause of lags can occur in several places. Starting with your own PC, over the internet connection to the server up to a high load of the host system. In order to be able to limit the difficulty here more exactly, the following points help:
- Have modifications been added or changed recently?
- Have multipliers been changed recently?
- Were other settings / changes made?
If a change has been made as mentioned above, it usually already helps to revert it.
As long as no changes have been made, there could be a temporary problem with the host system or the save-game. Please contact the support for further information.
You will find a performance icon for the settings who can affect the server performance.
In that case we recommend that you do not set this settings too high or even enable/disable it.
