- Official Servers: 3x XP, Harvesting, Taming, and Breeding, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus
- Small Tribe Servers: 4.5x XP, 4.5x Harvesting, 4.5x Taming, and 4x Breeding, 1.5x Hexagon Bonus

For the duration of this EVO Event, we will be disabling the world buffs from Baby Boon & Maewing Poach on Genesis Part 2 on the Official Network. In the past, we've adjusted for the impact events have had on the rates by tweaking the bonuses that we use during breeding events, however, those tweaks lead to unfavorable circumstances on maps that aren't Genesis Part 2, so during breeding events, we'll be disabling these mission buffs specifically as not to affect the bonuses on other maps.
We’re back with another ARK tale from the past. In today’s story, we relive the tale of our first bout with the Island Dragon Boss.
It’s a rainy day on the ARK as our tribe is gathered around the obelisk. There’s a nip in the air and an ominous feeling surrounds the tribe as we line our Rex army up on the obelisk. Tribe Admin A says the situation looks bleak and isn’t hopeful for a successful outcome. Tribe morale isn’t very high so the tribe leader gives us a war speech before placing the remaining artifacts needed to start the fight in the terminal. As the bubble starts to surround our creatures the feeling of hope begins to flood over the tribe as we are all confident after our leaders wonderful speech, but little did we know, things weren’t going to be so easy. As we enter the arena and see the beast flying overhead, we mount our rexes and our tribe leader takes her position on the yuty. The creature flies around for a short while before finally landing and engaging with our creatures. We tear into the Dragon with tooth and claw as our Rexes are full of energy thanks to the Yuty. Little did we know at the time being the ignorant people we are that the dragon had a fire breath attack that dealt percentage based HP. As it flees to the skies once more, we realize our Rexes are already below half health, while the dragon itself is only about 20% down on HP. As we are planning for this unthought circumstance, disaster strikes. Swarms of Dimorphs and Pteras rain from the sky, claiming the lives of 2 of our tribe members in the process. We manage to defend from them as the Dragon lands down upon us and unleashes it’s Fire breath once more. Our rexes begin to fall one by one as we continue to try and salvage our futile attempt at beating this beast. He claims the lives of all but one Rex with which I am mounted on, and the yuty our tribe leader is controlling. Stunned, we resort to working together to try and handle the next swarm of minions the guardian has summoned on us. As we take them down he lands once more, striking a critical final blow in our forces as he wiped the remainder of us off the ARK.. alas, we were utterly defeated, with our creatures gone and little hope that we could be the beast, things didn’t look very hopeful. But we will have our revenge. The tribes will is stronger than anything the ARK can throw at us.
Woobly does the unthinkable and installs every dino mod from the Steam Workshop. What are the possibilities of him surviving 100 days?
