Review: Logicservers was the first hosting company I've gone with and I can't see using any other. Response to both setup and any technical or billing issues and questions has been quick and thorough. My friends and I have very much enjoyed the shared gaming experience we have on our server thanks to Logicservers.

Review: Bought an Ark server London and been playing for a month with no issues. Great Service. Everything smooth with 15 of us playing. Put a few Mods on and all good. Easy to use server panel. Definitly recommend. Had crapy service with previous host so this is definitely an upgrade.

Review: Bought an Empyrion Sever and it was good to go quite quickly but after almost an hour, (After being told it would take about 10 minutes), never received an Email with my admin login information. Wrote a ticket in regards to this and was responded to after about 90 minutes saying this would be resolved soon. Another 90 Minutes later still nothing, I cancelled. **Edit I would have preferred Chicago TBH but when placing the order it said Chicago was sold out not Dallas.

Review: Used to give 3.5 stars, but now I’m having more issues and no resolution. For what they did well, user interface on control panel is fairly straight forward, and most of my issues and questions have been solved looking at the provided Knowledgebase. However, there are several control options and variations that are included on ARK's "Local/Host" settings that are not included in the config editor. I am also running into quite a few technical issues for the past 3 weeks I've used this server. I have a server with 20 slots, but myself and my 4 friends are having issues with some pretty serious stuttering and lag spikes. Mostly seems to occur when using a raft or flying/moving too fast. Also had and issue where the entire server went through a map reset and we lost all our dinos, structures, and what we were carrying. Couldn’t use the old save file even though I can see the past save in the file manager and all I found for help on the knowledgebase was to create backups more often. Unfortunately the knowledgebase was not able to fix these last 2 problems, and we’ve had tickets in for the past 2 weeks and no one has responded (excluding the automatic response for record). Overall, I cannot recommend, but for the 1/2 off price I got for my first 3 months, it’s still a good experience.

Review: I'm impressed ! Renting a server is was out of question for me until I rent one from Logicservers. Flawless even in big fight. My players are very satisfied and it's easy to use. I didn't need the tutorial at all. I highly recommend this product !

Review: This was my first try on setting up a server "on my own" and i have to say i am very pleased about how easy they have made it to do so.. Everything was very self-explanatory and intuitive. When i ran into a issue (some mods did not download right) i made a ticket and they answered within 10 minutes.. and that kind of customer-service makes me very happy. Have only used this service for a week or so now, but i have no issue in referring other gamers here for getting a own server up

Review: Excellent services, servers top notch and prices great for services offered. Definitely recommend!

Review: Decent price but $1 a slot is a little too expensive. I tried following the step by step instructions to install mods but its confusing for visual learners.

Review: Support is no good, UI isnt easy to use for first time users, and found the people in the discord to be quite rude.

Review: Excellent customer service and prices are right. I have 2 gaming servers with them and website hosting. I couldn't be happier.

Review: Logic gives great personalized service. I feel like these guys care about their customers and are very understanding the needs of someone running a game server. Their prices are fantastic. I’m paying half the price I was with another company and I’m getting more!

Review: I only had it for about 4 months but they were super helpful with any questions or problems I had even for a first timer starting up an Ark server. If I ever plan on starting another one up again I know the people who I'd hit up for it. These guys! ;D
