    Sheesh. I want things fixed, too, the single play ascension character deletion in particular, but come on. I am looking forward to the stream and it is for a good cause. There is no reason to feel bad about that.

    It's in single player settings. I think it's allow character download to be enabled.

    Unfortunately it isn't always that simple. I have looked around and the closest to a workaround is a several step process of saving before everything in preparation for the crash. Plus the settings, making sure they are off since it is counter intuitive. Also, I am having the problem with the PS4 version, for the record. I haven't tested it on PC. Anyway, it is hardly an official fix and it has been a known problem for a long time apparently, although I learned the hard way.

    If it does get to 8x everything, how long does it usually last? A day or two or longer? This is my first year I’ll be playing during the event.

    It usually reaches 8x towards the end of the day, so a few hours

    They weren't talking about how long the event is, they were asking how long do the increased 8x rates last.

    Last year it lasted 25 hours for entire event (25 hrs due to the end of Daylight Savings Time.  If I remember correctly it was 8x within 6 hours of the event starting which is at 12PM Eastern but that is completely donation dependent.  Because so much was raised last year 4x was then extended by WC into Monday until the normal weekly event ending time.

    I loved this charity. Recently got into Ark and will definitely be watching the stream tomorrow. A couple of questions. Will the increase rate affect everything in the game? Also, will we start from 2x with the current event, or will it drop to 1x and start from there?

    This is a good question, but if last year is any indicator, donors will bring the multiplier up above 2x within the first hour or so. Last year, 8x was hit within about 6 hours of the event starting. So, it won't be too terribly long before the multiplier goes above the FE3 event rates, plus, taming rate is impacted by the charity event, whereas it is not affected by the Fear Evolved event rate boosts. So, that's another huge plus for the charity event! Good luck out there, and if you can, throw a fiver or a tenner to help the cause; FOR THE KIDS!! 😊

    So how do we know which multiplier is hit? In case eggs are incubating? If the multiplier goes from 1x to 8x so that we can be there to get the hatched dinos. Does food consumption stay at 1x?

    For anyone wondering: Last year whenever we hit a new  multiplier it was flashed across the ark screen. They will also be announcing it (usually) on the stream. After the 24 period was up last year, they also gave us the rest of the weekend (until Monday) with a 4x rate as a bonus.

    I've been playing official PvP since it dropped on PS4 and this event it probably the highlight for everyone playing. Especially those raising tames like giga, racer, squids, etc that are essentially for PvP, but it also shows a burst in fresh players. Let the new players build up, guys and gals, scout the alphas/megas, they got better loot 😝

    No, I believe it will start at 1.5x at the first 5k so 8x will be at 70k.

    I tested it out 2 months ago, ascension is safe.

    Not on PS4, I am afraid. I lost mine ascending on the Island map October 7th. I had not known about the bug before then, but then found out it was a pretty well known one with the closest thing to a workaround being a series of steps to save in-between in preparation for the crash that happens.
