ARKADE Donation and VIP Information

Thank you for supporting our Ark unofficial community! ARKADE prides ourselves on offering both pvp and pve communities that are completely free to play. 

ARKADE is rare in that we are a large community yet we re-invest every dollar right back into our servers to cover our monthly expenses. We carefully choose the best gaming dedicated servers available with fast processors and the best DDoS protection. We strategically place these machines around the world so we can offer low ping from NA to EU and more! With low maps per server, we offer plenty of slots to everyone gets a chance to play. We'll even run multiple copies of in-demand maps, such as Ragnarok, Extinction and Genesis which have 4-5 Maps throughout our clusters! We only care about giving EVERYONE a chance to play on a fair playing ground. You won't have to pay for whitelisting to be able to play on any of our maps.

Donating will not get you OP items or dinos - everything that is offered in both the Tebex Shop and the in-game Coin shop are items you can get by simply playing. Everyone earns one coin per minute while playing on the clusters. Some VIP tiers will boost this bonus slightly. Any VIP dinos offered are usually mostly for cosmetic reasons - you get an adorable ARKADE colored dino!

Need to cancel? 

Currently our shop uses only Paypal as a payment method. If you started a Paypal subscription and need to cancel, you can do so from your Paypal subscriptions page. Here is a guide on how to do just that:
