    Any attempt at abusing any Entropia Universe systems or features in order to gain an unfair advantage over other participants will be grounds for disqualification from the event, forfeiture of any prizes, and possible sanctions imposed on one’s Entropia Universe account.

    Good Luck and Have Fun!

    Cheers,
    Kris

    Nice, thanks! To clarify a couple of points:

    1: it's basically a 48-hr event? (making sure I understand start and end times...)

    2: the order prizes are allocated in should start at provider first place I guess, but it quickly becomes tricky. As it says only 1 prize per avatar is possible, it would be a bit silly if an avatar has, say, 10th place in the provider category AND 4th place in the olds. There is the risk that MA will simply allocate the durability amp II instead of the presumably better prize of the durability amp III. Have you clarified guidelines with MA and can you tell us pls?

    3: I don't really particularly want to bring this up, but there is someone with a seemingly countless number of alts who has avatars parked at the 48-hr 'daily' mission NPC (inside the hut) and rotates avatar upon avatar for the (1or2)*8 tokens. This event looks like it could attract alts too. Please be aware of this and either put pressure on stopping alt activity or put pressure on MA to finally open up the official position and allow multiple avatars per person in some way.

    Thank you!

    I don't think you really have to worry about that, in general als have no skills, and even the mature Tide claws need some skills to be killed (also the prices not really worth it i think).

    Oh yeah, they are (L)! Somehow I missed that. That changes things quite a bit then, yes, thanks for pointing it out - and I guess thanks too for saving me fuel and peds!

    Edit: didn't want that to sound negative about the event if it comes across that way - just that it'll probably be my decision not to take part. But it IS nice to see an event taking place, and for anyone who likes tide claws then it is the chance of getting a bit of a bonus!

    Hey jetsina,

    That's correct.

    I believe that you would be awarded the highest placing, but I will clarify with MindArk to make sure. This event was setup with their schema so I would guess that they have those sort of guidelines already in place.

    I think harmony hits the nail on the head here:
    But if there is any funny business I'll certainly be making sure that the correct people hear about it.

    Cheers,
    Kris

    Cya!

    I took another look and noticed this, This apparently is an 36 hour event, adding am and pm and using 24 hr time stamps is messing the times up, can we have clarification asap Kris.

    Looks like 48 to me. Friday turns into saturday morning it's 12 01 am, next comes 1 am etc..
    goto sunday at 1201 am that's 24 hours.
    goto sunday just after high noon that's 1201 pm making it 36 hours
    now take it to the very end just before midnight on sunday night that's 1159 pm.. you are about two seconds short of 48 hours.

    @Chief, it is correct and not in 24-hr format. In 12-hr format the 12 is written instead of 0. Though I'm pretty sure they keep that arcane format only to keep the rest of the world confused :bduh:

    Crap prizes..if they where UL maybe would worth! They don't fix ARC vendors(u make 200badges and look at a empty vendor) but they bring a lame event! "GOOD JOB" C-team/MA! Other way to make a quick buck from players!

    Oh no, they did something some people like, the bastards!
    Judging by the amount of globals, there are enough people who like it, so it's not a lame event to them. They can't please everyone. A small event should have small prizes....

    Btw is the vendor empty now? wasn't empty a week ago....

    Just checked: nope not empty (can't get a full set though atm).

    Simply if you don't like the prizes don't partake, while the prizes aren't amazing, most levels of players can enter and stand a chance of winning.

    When you only need a hat and shoes, and they are sold out 24/7, the vendor counts as empty to me.
