    We are currently working on a major update for The Center, which includes numerous fixes for visual issues, polish, level design, and bugs, such as an issue with Pyromane Breeding on servers, the inability to build in some spots around the map, and the unsupported items issue.

    Many of these fixes have been queued up in advance, but due to maintaining cross-platform compatibility and certification requirements, we had to wait to release them. Now that the release is out the door, we’ll be working on getting this patch out next week.

    “Cannot Download. 3 Unsupported Items.” - If you're experiencing this issue, we have a quick workaround available until the patch is released:

    1. Download your character from the cloud onto an Island
    2. Transfer your character directly to The Center server of your choice

    Note: This issue can occur when going via the cloud, so make sure you’re doing a direct transfer.

    We’ll be monitoring reports for new issues and solving them as they come in! And, as always, we will continue to monitor official server capacity with a view to adding new servers if needed.

    Thanks again for all your support. We hope you enjoy the new content!

    Conquest servers are being introduced to ARK: Survival Ascended by Snail Games. Conquest is a new PvP player experience for PC players which focuses on large-scale PvP while avoiding the problem of mega tribes. Increased rates will allow tribes to set up and establish themselves quickly and enable them to rebuild after potential losses instead of being wiped completely. The official Conquest servers will start on June 13th!

    If you need any support during the Conquest season, join the Conquest Enforcement's Discord.

    newseason.png

    • 5x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding (imprint, maturation, hatch/gestation)
    • 0.5x Mating Interval
    • Tribes are set to 50 players max
    • Tribe alliances are allowed
    • Servers have a maximum player count of 75

    WC was always exceling at promoting pride stuff, never at fixing bugs.

    As for the lion un Flambé.. really WC? really??

    This DLC is quite literally a copy and pasted dressed up version of the "Shadowmane" creature from their old game ARK: Survival Evolved. Same 3D model, same textures, same animations, same mechanics like a stacking DoT bleed, only this time it spawns everywhere & it's on fire. You can go buy McDonalds, a cup of coffee, or a bazillion other fully-fledged games for $5 instead of supporting this blatant cash grab garbage.
    got catbaited
    lol Wildcard wants my card again

    its better than charging 20 for it. 5 bucks isn't a bad deal. BTT is a different story because they give you new items over the course of 3 maps and i'm hoping beyond that. and they aren't even charging us for the old maps. its the new content they are charging us for

    because conquest servers are PC only what happened to grossplay? How should you counter the mega tribe phenomenon on a server that allows tribes of 50 people and has active alliances? is there anyone who will want to play it knowing what happened on these servers in the old game? I don't seem to have seen a request with more than 40 votes for these servers on the forum

    If the company wasn't staffed with malicious mentally damaged employees that would gladly ban a person for rejecting their subversive agendas, you would see far more. 
    You seem like you need attention so here's your dopamine boost for the day.

    I could’nt have said that last part any better brother. Also, mentally stunted are those who play a lifelong game of pretend and ignore facts and reality and science and common sense etc etc…🫡

    Every map you released so far is worse than the ase version,I'm glad I never paid for any of your dlc asa has to be the biggest scam in gaming history and you can tell the devs just don't care anymore.

    Lol No chance. Definitely not perfect, but SE and The Center are leagues above the ase versions. Like not even close.

    I would've been happier if you just brought regular tek dinos back doing a crappy crossover no one asked for that also doesn't make sense I feel is a bad move.

    This version of The Center map is so far from the source material it's depressing. 

    I think I'm done with this game for at least a while.

    you know im really just getting sick of this game adding paid dlcs which are not maps just useless cosmetics and skins and overpowered poop like oasisaur and pyromane that i cant get for paying almost 50 bucks for this piece of crap which i havent yet. i love the maps, i love the scenery and i love the concept of this game since the beginning and now because of the ptw situation im starting to hate this game. snail games just said f u to all the players because some randomass beety eyed prostitude wants truck loads of money by scamming people and betraying them.

    so now we have the answer to the question why they are not opening transfers after 2 month, the pyromane 😛

    for to the mighty morphin power rangers, i hope you include this fella, if not expect riot lol.

    can you fix center spawns please... and bring more servers up...

    just take down all the atlas servers, you do not care about this awesome game anymore anyway... /cry

    And you can make a cup of coffee at home for barely $1 or buy one at Starbucks for $7. Just don't buy it if you don't want it.

    Bro WHAT? The shadowmane was a creature included with the genesis season pass, a pass that costed $15. That pass included 2 story maps, each with their own biomes, stories, bosses, and missions. 15 unique dinos, two new variations of creatures(X and R variants), 33 unique engrams, and even more to boot. Now, do you honestly believe that the Pyromane(reskinned Shadowmane) is worth a THIRD of everything I just listed, if you do, go back to high school and take an economics course cause you need it.

    That's because WC does a better job getting homophobic hicks to shut the hell up here than they do on X.

    I believe they meant that "lifelong game of pretend" applies more to religion (created only to control those that fear death) than it does to Pride. I don't know how you think loving someone of the same gender or not being attracted to any gender (asexual) is "pretend". Take those arguments elsewhere.

    I'm straight, and I can still understand wanting to be able to love whoever you want without risk of harm or being killed.

     

    Anyway, loving the pyromanes and dino colors!

    Happy Pride Month everyone!

    I was more or less referring to the group of individuals who consider themselves the opposite sex of what they are. I could care less who’s attracted to whom. Guess I should have specified that from the beginning.

    I know what you meant, yet it is a common thing lately that people pin all of Pride on simply a percentage of a greater whole. You focus on the T while being ignorant about the LGBQIA and beyond (+).

    That's like saying everyone who likes any music whatsoever is "mentally ill", when you are actually referring specifically to country music.
