Okay all I know that this thread may get some backlash from some of the community but I feel I must offer this suggestion.
The evolution events have no become the spawn of much anger from the community with both developers and consumers being at fault. The evolution event began as a random bonus weekend that slowly became a permanent thing and as such it became part of their weekly schedule.
In my country Domino's pizza did the same thing with cheap pizzas on Tuesday for 2 years, making it a weekly thing for consumers to get pizza on Tuesday. They then removed it and the backlash was astronomical social media went crazy and they took a big hit financially.
Much like the pizzas Wildcard has conditioned the player base to play on Weekends for evolution events and have regularly been having breeding etc until this weekend when it was not included. I read social media posts and people in server chat enraged about it, I even saw that one girl purchased Giga eggs and took the weekend off work to hatch them only to find no increasement.
When Ark begins to affect real life then their is a problem and as I have previously stated that Wildcard needs to take the blame for conditioning their player base to these events. The player base also need to accept that official servers are official servers and any form of increasement should of been a bonus not a requirement every weekend nor should it be demanded.
If it was known in advance what the evolution event would be or if it was on a schedule it could work, but I wish to suggest the removal of the evolution events and instead leave resource collection standard at its standard 1x and improve breeding etc to x2.
I understood the first time they did evolution events was to determine what would be the best form of standard resource collection for official servers and in turn resources became standard 2x back then the game was still in preview so was part of the development process and now that it official release the reasoning for these events cannot be the same and needs to be sorted out before more community backlash.
