I found the ARKADE Legacy server looking for a short time break from pvp, I went through a lot of different pve clusters that didnt have what I was looking for. When I found Arkade I instantly got hooked and I have stayed here for 1 ½ years now, and have no intentions of leaving any time soon. There are so many things great with this cluster and community, if you need anything you can just ask the community and you can either buy it from someone or someone will even give it to you for free! There are also a bunch of well known members of the community that everyone knows, does business with and chats with, in all a really wholesome community! The staff is really great, they enjoy helping the community and they are fast at replying to for example tickets.

Personally I recommend playing ARKADE because the PvP is fully balanced, there is no type of admin abuse, cheaters are removed instantly by the incredibly active admins and playing the server in general is just very fun.
I like ARKADE because it has a great community full of players that seem to know what they're doing. The servers have a lot of pvp all day long. Also the server has a great admin team that's strict but still able to take a joke once in a while.

I love ARKADE because it's the perfect ARK server. It has good rates, good mods, active community, dedicated admins that listen to community input. It seems like I won't need to search for another ARK server again :D. Thanks for hosting!
A great server with great staff. I'm not sure if i'm addicted to ark or ARKADE, probably both!
I genuinely love the server and its team. I think this is one of the best private servers out there, and I believe it has the best staff team out of any other unofficial server. I know that the staff team cares deeply about their server. I've met many people during my time spent here at Arkade.

Arkade is a phenomenal cluster to play on! They have a kick ass community with active mods and admins, there's something for everyone whether its PVP or PVE!

I found ARKADE while looking for some PvE servers just to get away from PVP. I found ARKADE to discover it's not only the most active PvE cluster I've ever seen, but has a really nice PVP AND PvE community moderated by geniune and caring Administration and Enforcement teams. I would definitely recommend this server for both PvE and PVP for a balanced experience with many choices for people to choose from.

This cluster has thoroughly impressed with its consistently communicative administrative team, its attention to the reviews and concerns of its playerbase, and a constant flow of transparent work that shows they are never stagnant on content tweaks or keeping up with the general game itself. It is highly entertaining, the administrative team is helpful and professional in a fun way, and my family has very much enjoyed being a part of this community! Highly recommended, 11/10.

Best experience I've had in ark since I left official. I can actually dedicate myself to the real world and have a fun time in ark at the same time. Thank you arkade

Arkade has fun competition without all of the annoying lag and dupes on official. Gacha Loot runs Arkade, IRL HUMAN CRANES ONLY

I found Arkade when looking for a balanced pve server to get back into ark with. Arkade is super balanced and has a great community behind it. The staff is super helpful, and the connection quality is great. 10/10 would recommend.

I have been playing on official for years on PVP, sick of getting wiped and boring of farming for alpha tribes. So, I always want to play PVE for chilling but hate spam structures around the world at official. I get to know Arkade from a friend named Dio and i really thank him because Arkade is the only sever that makes me playing Ark from long quit :D

This place is one of the most enjoyable servers I've been a part of, and hands down the most friendly and chill community I've ever been a member of within Ark. So glad I found this place!

I joined Arkade while looking for a new unofficial server to have a little fun. I saw it near the top of the lists online and decided to give it a shot because it's relatively vanilla, has reasonable rates, and there were players on it. I had no idea the degree with which I'd actually be enjoying the server. It runs like a well-oiled machine. When there are issues, admins are around to help quickly. If someone has a request or a question, community and staff are able to respond usually within minutes. The community does have rough spots and chat can get a little argumentative, but even that is usually put down really quickly. Just in general, the server is a great place to enjoy the game with friends or alone, since the way it's set up allows for any kind of play style.
