    I went on a mining run after the first hunt on Oratan, in Nusul territory. The mining was good, but the hunting bad.
    Afterwards I did two more runs on Oratan Slasher, with both pretty nice returns and a few globals as well.
    2020-12-02 -- Oratan Slasher Bandit 30 PED .jpg 2020-12-02 -- Oratan Slasher Vandal 40 PED .jpg Oratan Slasher 003.jpg

    Then I went back to the Ferans, scoring one mighty good global (for this mob) and some small ones. I did two smaller hunts with an axe, because of reasons. I still have way to many (mêlée) weapons in Storage that I want to use and decay till oblivion. Axes are not a weapon of choose for Ferans, though. I wonder why? o_O

    I then gave myself three options again. This time it was 1) Oweko, 2) Sicarius Commander and 3) Monura Male. This wasn't a difficult one, so I flew to the Moon. Firstly finishing the mission for that orange toxic suit (I forgot the name ...)
    And then I finished Stage 4 in three rather big hunts. The results went from acceptable to bad, unfortuatly. But I'm happy to have finished it, and might do the othe4 Sicarius types too after I'm done with the Ferans.

    I finish this update with another Feran hunt. I expect to need just 2-3 more hunts to finish the 12k mission.
    And when I was done with that Feran hunt I checked to see my progress on the Kinetic Attack Nanochip 10 (L) :

    Done! That took me long enough lol.

    Goals:
    62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
    68. Finish Carabok Stage 5 (3.750 of 10.000).
    69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (24.88 of 30.00).
    70. Completed! Max out Kinetic Attack Nanochip 10 (L) (26). I didn't think about a new goal, so this is vacant till the next update. Maybe maxing-out a big axe that I've looted a long time ago?
    71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).

    Quick note: the cost to kill a Sicarius Commander was (on average) 5,68 PED in August of this year and is now 5,57 PED. That's a reduction of ~11 PEC or ~2%. With 1000 killed to finish Stage 4, that's ~110 PED saved.

    This year has been fucked-up for the fast majority of the human race. And it is no different for me. I'm not going into all the details, because compared to those that have lost loved ones, are in despair how to get their next meal, my life is still quite oke. Not good, but it can be a lot worse.

    Last week I had a needed break from EU for a few days. And it sort of is contueing now with me being absent from the game from a day or more.
    Again, not going into all the details, but I've left NBK. I joined them in the summer of 2017. Half october I became a colonel (NBK Rangers). Now I have joined a small group of other ex-NBK members who were feeling the same things as I do. We call ourselves Laid Back, to signal that we are here to have fun and enjoy each others compagny and the game. And, om my god! we're in the Top 50! #23, right above Warants and cK Coat Killers. Those socs were the absolute gods when I started all these years ago in my orange jumpsuit in the dangerous and wild fields of Eudoria.

    I've finished yet another Stage 5: Ferans this time with a good Perception reward.
    Stage 5 Feran.jpg

    I've made list of the mobs of wich I have Stage 3 open and compared the rewards for Stage 3 and 4. I rank the skills from 5 to 1. Examples: Athletics = 5 ; Rifle = 4 ; First Aid = 3 ; Telepathy = 2 ; Plasma Weaponry Technology = 1.

    Kadra.......... : 5 + 5
    Scoria.......... : 5 + 5
    Yuka............ : 5 + 3
    Magurg Male... : 5 + 3
    Badger_710R.. : 3 + 3
    Teladon......... : 3 + 3
    Kamaldon...... : 3 + 2

    So, I went for the Kadraas afterwards. I'm not going to suffer the Scoria till then end of the combined IFN/ Codex Period. I finished Stage 3 in just 3 runs, gaining a good chuck of Courage ...
    Stage 3 Kadra.jpg
    ... and plenty of nice globals to make me happy.
    Kadra 006.jpg Kadra 007.jpg Kadra 008.jpg Kadra 009.jpg Kadra 010.jpg Kadra 011.jpg Kadra 012.jpg Kadra 013.jpg Kadra 014.jpg Kadra 015.jpg Kadra 016.jpg Kadra 017.jpg

    Going for Magurg Male or Yuka next? It's a toss up, and I went for Yuka because a) Magurg Males are taxed and b) the potential for a big fat second über. Unfortuatly, they also cost a damn and the loot wasn't with me the first three hunts. Two fine globals, but not good enough to bring any hunt close to breaking even.
    Yuka 022.jpg Yuka 023.jpg

    Next up was a random mob choose from three candidates: a) Magurg Male, b) Teladon, c) Mutated Madana. I could have gone for the Magurg Males, but I went for the Teladon instead. Not sure why, but I'm pleased with the results of the first two hunts.
    Teladon 014.jpg Teladon 015.jpg Teladon 016.jpg Teladon 017.jpg Teladon 018.jpg

    Goals:
    62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
    68. Finish Carabok Stage 5 (3.750 of 10.000).
    69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (24.99 of 30.00).
    71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
    72. New! Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (32 of 43). I have this one for a long time now (looted it from ... I don't know ... maybe I got it from someone else during a teamhunt?) Anyhow, I want to max it out now and when I wrote this one down I only had 19 of 43 uses per minute. So what happened?

    This is a very small update of only the last two hunts done in 2020.
    First one was Teladon, second one Yuka and both with a healer. Both had some nice globals, as you can see here.

    2020 Summary

    Last year, with all its crazyness and ... well, 2020ness was an even more active year in Entropia for me as 2019 was. I've completed a ton of missions on three planets, and gained a few ranks in Calypso Codex. I got my first Über this year, and many more good things to look back at.

    Let's see what I've done, archieved and gotten to this year. Not everything, just sort of the highlights for me.
    I became a Smuggler - Part II, meaning that I now have the full Smuggler suit and clothes.
    I got 200 HP and made it to 250k skills.
    The massive 2048 PED Oweko (sorry, I can't stop talking about this one) :cool:
    I bought two new rings (yet I also can't remember the names. Ares Modified and Athenic ehh ... Mod too?)
    I've had some small succes in mining this year.
    I've been waiting with the rest of you for Codex on Arkadia. I thought it would come in july first, then end of august / beginning of september. Lastly I had a little hope for the start of december. And now I've stopped predicting it.
    I've moved soc more times (almost) then I did the previous 15 years. Now I'm in Laid Back, a newly formed society by ex-NBK members.
    I unlocked four skills: Butchering, Xenobiology, Blueprint Comprehension and Mindforce Harmony. :droid:

    And now for the 'bad' stuff.
    I tried to start a Twich account, but my currect desktop isn't up to the task. Still, it remains something that I want to do.

    I've spend this year a total of 289.997,08 PED, that's a little over 3,75 times more when compared to 2019. Of those PEDs 271.866,82 (93,75%) was the weapon-decay, markup from limited weapons (if I paid for them), enhancers (from weapons) and ammonution used. 17.733,75 (6,12%) was my total defense cost, rought one-and-a-half-time more then in 2019. 217,57 (0,08%) was the cost of everything else, that means flying with the DragonFly when I'd been killed or jumping with the TP-chips. Also the cost of the Aakas and Sal'diresh Keys and pills are in here. 178,94 (0,06%) is left for my Chikara InvestaFoe ES300 scanner-decay.
    From all those PEDs spend I got back 89,80%, or 260.416,28, a loss of 29.580,80 PED, wich is a way more then in 2019. And truth be told, I had no idea that I lost almost $ 3k before I saw these numbers. I'm happy with the result I have. I dared to hope for my first solo Über in 2020, and that worked. Now let's hope for a positive year return in 2021, shall we? :lurking:

    With all that hunting done, I managed to finishing the following missions on Arkadia:
    Stage 1: Pandi, Sicarius Brute, Sicarius Commander, GMC_Gamma, Badger_710R, Mutated Madana, Mutated Nusul, Kamaldon
    Stage 2: Yuka, Korwil, Sicarius Brute, GMC_Gamma, Sicarius Commander, Teladon, Badger_710R, Magurg Male, Togolossi, Kamaldon, Scoria
    Stage 3: Wombana, Oratan, Navi, Sicarius Worker, Oompa, Warhound, Sicarius Brute, Korwil, Sicarius Commander, GMC_Gamma, Madana, Kiana, IFN Defense Bot, Beladoth, Kadra :alien:
    Stage 4: Wombana, Oratan, Navi, Feran, Ubo, IFN Defense Bot, Oompa, Oweko, Sicarius Commander
    Stage 5: Wombana, Zadul, Navi, Tiarak, Bokol, Ostelok, Feran
    Stage 6: None :chicken:

    The missions completed on Calypso:
    Stage 1: Defender, Scipulor, Caperon, Mulmun, Maffoid, Araneatrox, Scaboreas, Hogglo, Longtooth, Formicacida :beaver:
    Stage 2: Eviscerator, Cornundacauda
    Stage 3: Molisk, Berycled, Drone, Prancer, Kreltin, Aurli, Kerberos
    Stage 4
    : none
    Stage 5: Shinkiba/Daikiba
    Stage 6: Snarksnot

    The missions completed on Toulan:
    Stage 1: Qaffaz, Duhol, TabTab, Jeef Qaher, Thawr
    Stage 2: Qaffaz :wtf:

    The missions completed on Next Island:
    Stage 1: Village Boar, Red Papoo, Yellow Papoo, Grey Papoo, Brown Papoo, Mountain Boar, Wild Boar, Shark, Storm Drake, Great White Shark :eggonface:
    Stage 2: Yellow Papoo, Brown Papoo, Village Boar, Grey Papoo, Red Papoo, Mountain Boar, Shark, Wild Boar
    Stage 3: Red Papoo

    And now also the Codex completed on Calypso (in steps of 5):
    Rank 5: Snarksnot, Berycled, Drone, Daikiba, Shinkiba, Aurli, Kreltin, Kerberos, Eviscerator
    Rank 10: Berycled, Daikiba, Shinkiba
    Rank 15: Daikiba, Shinkiba :bear:

    Now I'm just casually working on completing more IFN missions. Right now I'm on Yuka, and it would be nice if I can complete this one. But I won't cry if we get Codex today (I must admit, I have no idea if there will be a VU today or not). If I knew before that it would be this long a wait, then I would have made some other choses. But, what's done is done.

    Just like last year, I've made two graphs to show how it went from hunt to hunt.
    Graph 2020 A.png
    Here you can see for each hunt # on the x-axis (first hunt of 2020 is #1, it's not the same as the numbers in this blog, because I've started end of 2015) how much the total return % is for 2020 on the y-axis. The view can be a bit misleading, because there's a huge range in hunting costs. With the cheapest I've only spend 13,63 PEDs (Hunting Osteloks at the end of one evening with Herman ARK-0 (L) - and still it's almost 5x as big a hunt as the smallest from 2019). While the most expense has been a hunt of 2526,71 PEDs (Hunting 400 Beladoth, finishing Stage 3 and getting just 2 globals - and this one was almost twice as big as the one from 2019). Kinda fun to see the results from say hunt #200 jump upward a few times.

    Graph 2020 B.png
    This graph shows the accumulated hunting costs on the x-axis versus the accumulated return on the y-axis. There are a few bumps in the slope, but overall it's pretty much downwards all the way. :devilish:

    Last few years I closed with a top worst / best mobs. But now I don't. I just don't find it that much of an interest, and besides I don't really adapt my hunts to it anyhow. To show what I mean, these are the top 5 best from 2019 and when I last hunted them:
    Huon = 15 September 2019
    Atrox = 14 December 2019
    Hadraada = 12 November 2019
    Calypso Puny = 01 Augustus 2020
    Carabok = 12 November 2019 :troll:

    [EDIT]
    I've wanted to add this in the beginning, but forgotten all about it.

    I've looked at the results per month. There are numerous player that claim that the loot is bad during Mayhem, or in the summer, or at any other period or season. So, let's look how I did each month.

    January88,8%
    February84,0%
    March86,5%
    April89,5%
    May89,8%
    June91,8%
    July92,9%
    August93,3%
    September90,2%
    October98,2%
    November94,5%
    December91,0%
    A few things about this table:
    The big HOF was in november, that isn't my best month.
    I was on Calypso the first three months.
    I was on Toulan and Next Island basicly the entire month of September.
    [/EDIT]

    And now there's only one thing left for me to say, and that is: ....

    Best wishes to all of you and happy HOFfing in 2021 and stay healthy!

    A new year, a new change. But so far, at least geopolitical and Covid wise, it's just the same or worse.
    I've had a ton of globals already, but that doesn't mean that I've always had a good return. It's mainly because I've been hunting strong mobs such as Yuka, Togolossi and big Badgers.

    Firstly I completed a leg of thee Yuka hunts. The second was the best (of this update), but I didn't score the best global that day.
    Yuka 026.jpg Yuka 027.jpg Yuka 028.jpg Yuka 029.jpg Yuka 030.jpg Yuka 031.jpg Yuka 032.jpg

    After those two Yuka I gave myself three options. 1) Kadra, 2) Scoria, 3) Togolossi. Scoria was scrapped inmidiatly and while Kadra has a better reward I went for the Togo. Main reason is that I've completed Kadra S3, but not Togolossi S3 yet.
    All returns were rather bad, besides the many global that I've said earlier.
    Togolossi 014.jpg Togolossi 015.jpg Togolossi 016.jpg Togolossi 017.jpg Togolossi 018.jpg Togolossi 019.jpg Togolossi 020.jpg Togolossi 021.jpg Togolossi 022.jpg Togolossi 023.jpg Togolossi 024.jpg

    Back to Yuka again, where this time the first two out of three hunts were a profit. Here I've also scored a big one: 386 PED and the runner-up at 253 PED the same hunt.
    Yuka 039.jpg

    And, as I'm doing now, I've switched to another mob again. This time my options were 1) Badger_710R, 2) Sicarius Brute, 3) Mutated Kamaldon. I went for the Badgers, because that's one of the mobs that I'm at S3 now and want to get to S4 before Codex starts on Arkadia, if possible. Reason for that being that I like to have the throphy hanging in my appartment, although I can imagine that the same will be available with Codex in one way or another.
    Unfortuatly none of the Badger hunts went well. First I hunted the small ones (with a healer), but after looking at the cost per killpoint, I had good case to believe that the big Badgers are cheaper to hunt. And I'm right: small Badgers was 0,35 PED / KP and big Badgers twice 0,24 PED / KP. Even though the big ones are killers. I've been send to the revive numerous times the first time I went for the big Badgers, yet only onces the second hunt. I don't know why that is.

    Goals:
    62. Prove my worth to the Smugglers, Part I (0 of 1).
    68. Finish Carabok Stage 5 (3.750 of 10.000).
    69. Get to level 30 Mutant Looter (25.05 of 30.00).
    71. Visit Monria and spend 10.000 PED. (0 of 10.000).
    72. Max out Bloodstained Axe 55 (L) (34 of 43).

    Nothing much happening with these goals. Carabok Stage 5 is waiting for Codex, same as the Smuggler chain (I need to finish a Stage 6 Wombana or Navi, and that too is waiting for Codex).

    I wanted to add one more thing about the Yuka. I can kill approxiatly 100 per hunt. That means, that when I finish S3 now and the grace period for Codex will be one year, that it will cost me 45-50 hunts to finish Yuka S4. Let's assume that I do 1 hunt per day (I don't, it's less), then one and a half month of hunting will be for the Yuka alone. And with that, it's unlikely that I'll finish every open IFN mission.
    On the other hand, three mobs can be done quickly that I know of. Those are the three that I've been doing in between of the Yuka now, ie. Teladon, Togolossi and Badger_710R.

    And here are too, in no particular order, my "you have gained a new rank in ..." pictures. I must say, I don't know what I keep all these pictures ...

    After the Badgers I went back to the Yuka once more.
    The first one was a large hunt of 150 kills. I think I hadn't killed that much Yuka before. I also got a good 400+ global that made it to a ~200 profit hunt. The other hunt weren't that good though, but I did get a global from a Feran that was in the way lol.

    After three hunt I had 200 Yuka left to complete the mission. That is possible, because I've done hunts of 100 or 125 before. However, I've also done hunts of more or less of 50 kills. So, I deceided to go for something else first. But what? Three options: a) Oweko, b) Teladon, c) Beladoth. I went for the Teladons because that is another mob on my list of wich I want to complete Stage 3. And I knew that I could finish that stage in 3-4 hunts. Wich I did, yeah!

    Back to the last Yuka hunts. The first was a good one with a 341 ped global and a 100+ profit. On the second I lost that all fourfold lol. But I did make it: Yuka Stage 3 complete!

    I had planned to go for the Magurg Males right after finishing Yuka S3 (Magurgs are another mob of wich I want to complete S3). Yet when I got to their little island and opened the mission log I realised that I needed 2100 kills and not 1200. That got me thinking how much it would cost me, also keeping in mind that Yuka cost me a kidney. Therefor I made a calculated guess how much it would cost me to finish the Stage 3 of the mobs that I wanted to go for initially.

    MobCost / kill(point)MissionCost to complete x 1000
    Magurg Male06,62210013,9
    Badger_710R00,41699802,9
    Kamaldon10,64120012,8
    Scoria10,82120013,0
    Yuka14,24120017,1
    And thereby I came to the conclusion to scrap that idea. Yuka was a bit over the top for me, and I would have gotten the same doubts with any of the other mobs too. I'm glad I finished S3 of Yuka, Kadra and Teladon.
    I had been thinking before to include the mobs that are at Stage 6 in the three options that I give to myself. And now, considering that I might not finish all the open missions I do. So naturally the first time I roll the dice it's none of those: a) Huon, b) Otorugi, c) Kadra. I've missed Otorugi and so I went for those. Last time I've hunted them was in april 2019! Now, the reward for the current mission (S4) is crap, namely Vehicle Repairing or Laser Tech, but I've always liked them and they like me too. On the third hunt I got a good 200+ global and a small, yet welcome profit.

    I've made my choses of what to hunt the past 1,5 year for 90% based on the coming Codex. I would have done a lot of different things if it wasn't for that and would most likely have had an Otorugi Figurine in my appartment by now. Ahh well, let's see what the future holds.
