Climb the career ladder from a lowly Field Intern to a Nobel Laureate!  

As you move up, you’ll need to play harder level AI opponents to keep earning Discoveries.  At higher levels, Discoveries can only be earned in Multiplayer matches.  


Multiplayer Bonuses

Multiplayer offers bonus discoveries to help climb the career ladder faster:

  1. Earn a Bonus Discovery for every human you beat in Matchmade Multiplayer 
  2. Earn a Bonus Discovery each day you play Matchmade Multiplayer
  3. Earn a Bonus Discovery for consecutive Multiplayer wins


Seasonal Tournament 

Once your reach Rank #9, Assistant Professor, you are in the Seasonal Tournament! 

Your rank is now floating and reflects your skill level.  You’ll still win Discoveries for defeating human opponents, but will lose Discoveries when you lose to human opponents.  You’ll never fall below rank #9 though.  

Your goal is to make it to Rank #1, Nobel Laureate, before Season end, and win the prestige and accolades of your peers, along with that Season’s exclusive Nobel Laureate Avatar.  If you make it to Rank Bucket #1, Nobel Laureate, you’ll keep it for the rest of the Season. You’ll also see your Global Elo Position against all other Evolution players.

At the end of each Season, a new tournament begins, with a new avatar to claim.  When the new Season begins:

All Players Rank #9 or better start the new season at Rank #9. 

All Players Rank #5 or better start the new season at Rank #6.

 Good luck, and adapt well!
