  • Evolution Event: Permanent Double Rates

    large.EvoEvent.pngHey Survivors,

    We’ve got some exciting news we’d like to share with you! As of today, we will be transitioning the ARK’s harvesting, EXP, and taming rates to 2x permanently. 

    This is a decision we’ve made after experimenting with the game’s rates for quite some time. You may have noticed in the last few weeks the Evolution Events have gotten longer, this has allowed us to get a better feel for how it would play out in a permanent live experience. We have consistently received a lot of feedback from you, and it was very evident that players preferred the increased rates. Thusly, the rates will stay at 2x permanently from now onwards on our Official Servers. Evo Event Weekends will consequently be increased to 3x rates.

    Furthermore, in the next major version releases, the 2x rates will be implemented directly in the game build itself. This means that Non-Dedicated Servers, Single Player Sessions and of course Unofficial Servers will also feel the increased rates. Therefore, if you’re currently using customized rates, it’s something you will want to keep in mind before this change is in place -- specifically upon the release of the next Major Version on each of your respective platforms, you may wish to reduce your server/game rates by 50% to have the same effective values as before.

    We appreciate all the response you guys have provided to us regarding our Evolution Events and are looking forward to running more exploring new features with you in the upcoming future.

    All the best,

    Wildcard Jat and the ARK: Survival Evolved Team

    Not really, doubling the rates is hardly the worst decision ever.

    You make silly claims like you can become alpha on a random server after 2 hours, which clearly is made up claims, and you act as if people don't have to work for stuff anymore, even though rates have only been doubled.

    You do realise you pick up 2 stones now instead of 1. It's stuff like that, doubling rates doesn't mean people get stuff without putting in effort and work still.

    Well said.  It just means that instead of grinding for 5 hours to get enough metal to build a largely defensible base, you only have to grind for 2-3.  Time can be better utilized and it's not as much of a pain to achieve large goals.  It's still a grind and you have to put effort in, but your effort is a little more rewarding.  Especially on those evolution weekends :Jerblove:

    By the way, just wanted to say that I've read a bunch of your stuff and I think you're doing a pretty good job as a community mod.  Keep up the good work.  I've been in that position on other forums before and your effort is very seldom realized and even less appreciated. @GamerPerfection

    I still think it should be 4 or even 5x the rates as vanilla, with resource stacking similar to some pc mods, like 1000 pieces of wood in a stack. and also improve the amount of weight you gain by adding more levels :) Trying to play while holding down a 60 + hour work week can be quite tedious. Hopefully this will change when pc hosted console servers launch and I can get my own!  Also is there plans for PS4 and Xbox1 to receive modding support? That would be awesome!

    Hey does anyone know if they are any further forward with boosting the rates of breeding yet? With all these new updates and the new cave its something that will no doubt be highly sought after. Not only that from a small tribe point of view it would be great to beable raise rexs in half the time for boss fights. Very difficult right now if you work 5 days a week and can only acheive this when holidays come around.

    The rates are the same. They just have it where when picking up the stone by hand you get 1x instead of 2x. Jen had posted about it a while back.

    This thread is super old.

    You pick up one rock because they wanted to keep it. I don't know the word I want to use here. To keep it real?  Punch a tree if you want to find out what the gathering rates are at.

    The evo events say 2x but they are really 3x the original rates.

    Yes but the OP was posted December 2016. Rocks were dropped to 1 last year. This OP is extremely old.
