    ASA_Aberration_CC_416_28_June_StA_Post_2560x1440.png

    Our next major core-content release this year will be Aberration Ascended —an eerily beautiful, derelict, malfunctioning ARK with an elaborate underground biome system, and the all-new next chapter of Bob’s Tall Tales. To give this special map the attention it deserves, we have moved the launch to September 4th. Our team is refining the process to complete the remastering of the content as efficiently as possible while maintaining our quality. We apologize for the delay in bringing the beloved Aberration to you, but it will be worth the wait! 

    In the meantime, there's a lot more to look forward to! We have several additions on the horizon: the Summer Bash event, a new ARK Additions creature coming to the base game, and lots of fun Club ARK updates. Stay tuned!

    Community_Event.png

    This season, Monarky is taking over the Center one grid at a time. Teams of four are divided by biomes and can initially only explore and build within one grid of the map. Each week, they compete to earn more grid squares, expanding their territory and aiming to conquer the entire map. However, they must be cautious—venturing into unclaimed grids drains their health, and entering enemy grids spells trouble.

    In Monarky VI: Grid Wars, biomes battle biomes. Teams must make do with their initial grid space until they win new crowns through grueling (but fun!) events. Failure leads to the consequences of Loser Island. At the end of the season, only one team will stand above the rest. So, who do you think will outwit, outplay, and outlast?

    I figured it out. Stupid cosmetics had me black slotted but the symbol didn't show up.

     

     

    *******Inventory Broken

    Scorched 5396 Server and my character can't pick anything up or remove things from containers like food troughs, vaults, fridge, etc..... I have tames I can't feed or imprint on.

     

    I've tried reloading, restarting, deleted all mods, etc. Nothing seems to work and it's only on this particular server 5396. 

     

    This is a new issue that sarted this morning and I've opened tickets but they get instantly marked as resolved with no help. 

     

    Any suggestions of help would be appreciated.

    You know, there was a time when people enjoyed the game without events, colors, or bonus rates.

    I'm not defending it or anything, I'm just saying there's more to the game than worrying about this stuff, acting like it hampers you from enjoying the game for what it is.

    No one is forcing you to enjoy the events. It might not be "up to par" with your standards, but it's literally better than nothing at all.

    I'm thankful enough that they didn't revert the game to ASE Legacy rates upon release of ASA, if anything. Even so, I'll take what I can get.

    But if you really feel like getting your word in, I heard they listen on the official discord more than here.

    Edit: Don't get it misconstrued either, I do feel the events/rates could for sure be better, I just won't whine about it. A more constructive post could go a long way.
