Our 24 hour Extra Life stream is fast approaching and we welcome all of you across the ARK and ATLAS communities in joining us. Let’s see what we can raise for the kids through gaming and giving with our fundraising event starting November 2nd at 9 am PST!

Live from our Seattle Studio to bring you entertainment, over 10k in giveaways from sponsors such as AMD, Alienware, MSI, Elgato, along with Collector’s Edition boxes, game keys, Discord, Nitrado vouchers, codes and more! So please tune in, whether you’re a streamer, a donator or just keen to be along for the ride, we’d love to have you! 

In the spirit of the event, we will be enabling boosted rates for all players on our Official Networks. These rates increase incrementally as each fundraising milestone is reached:

0.5x increase on all rates across our ARK Networks for every $5000 reached up to a maximum of 8x. 


If you’re feeling heroic, and want to support the event with your own stream and donation goals, sign up here(link) and let’s raise some money!

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.

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.

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!! 😊

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.
