To log into the server, Go to Co-Op, Server list, Type in The PACK in the search bar and highlight the Server when it shows in the list. Then Click join in the Status Window.
The cluster's map IPs have changed during the upgrade. You may see maps you have not joined before under "my survivors" in the servers screen within ark. If you are having trouble logging onto the server where you logged out:
1. Quit or force quit Ark and then steam entirely. 2. Use !servers here or look directly above this post to locate your server map IP 3. Click steam to relaunch steam (but not ark) 4. Launch using the link you grabbed from !servers within discord here 5. Wait patiently for 1-5 minutes. Some have experienced a locked ark main screen, some have had access to the main menu buttons (don't click on anything for a few minutes and it should load in) 6. This has resolved issues for most.
Steam sometimes has an issue with the "boot loader/launcher screen" if Ark is running. If you click the link and you don't see a small window to confirm joining a given server IP. follow the steps above.
PSA-Steam Joining Bug When you cannot join from the lobby page, and joining from the Banners page on the Website is also not working right, try this fix: Go to your Steam page> view> servers> when the box pops up, along the top are tabs, select "History" and there will be all the servers you have joined in the last two months. To join a server from one of them: right click the servers line, in the box that opens select "Join this Server?" and there you have it.
