    Hi all. I'm going to be setting up several events here on Arkadia in the 4 Event areas across the planet. I'm currently in a trial stage to see what kind of interest I can draw from the community in these events. The areas are set up to satisfy hunters of all levels. For now I will offer 100 ped in prizes with a 5 ped registration fee. (Excluding puny event area, 2ped registration when bug is fixed) As interest increases in the events, so will the prize amounts. Please check the event list tab in game for full details. Join chat channel #ArkadiaEvents

    Current Events to register for: (Pausing events for a week due to new chat interface and underground release)

    Tiarak and Riptor HSL NO TAXES! 3/15 @2100 MA
    Bokol and Nusul HSL NO TAXES! 3/18 @2200 MA
    Riptor and Kamaldon HSL NO TAX! 3/15 @1800 MA
    Noob Friendly Puny Event 3/15 @ 2300 MA ( only 30min event and 20 tickets to support weak puny spawn, prizes donated for event by Realdad Realdad Realdad)

    Planning to offer an UL Herman SIR-40 Tier 5.5 as a prize to an event soon. Event will have a 100ped ticket price and set for Highest Single Loot. I will shoot for a Saturday around 2200ish. I'm first making a list of people who want to join, as I need to ensure enough participants will join so I don't just giveaway this expensive weapon. Let me know if you'd be interested in joining.

    Location W/ Mobs and their maturities:

    Event Area 1: Riptor lvl 30 dominant - 45 stalker / Kamaldon lvl 35 young - 58 guardian 26251,18246
    Event Area 2: Carabok punies / Gallard punies 31883,11864
    Event Area 3: Tiarak lvl 8 young - 12 provider/ Riptor lvl 19 young - 24 provider 18779,17463
    Event Area 4: Nusul lvl 4 young - 7 guardian / Bokol lvl 10 young - 18 Alpha 26251,18246


    For those of you who attended my last puny event, I apologize for the spawn respawn rate. I have Contacted Dave (the CEO/owner of ARK) and have been promised that the A-team will put this issue as a high priority to get it fixed ASAP. I've also made the suggestion to put a default TP and terminals in the center of each Event Area to reduce travel costs and time. Also, we are looking at moving mobs within event areas around and adjusting maturities to even out the danger level gap. We may be able to look forward to that in a near future update.

    If you have a business you'd like me to promote and would like to sponsor an event please contact me via info below.

    If you would like to donate prizes you will be accredited for them in the following posts and in the event which your items are used as prizes and/or event creation fees.

    If you have any questions, feedback, or concerns: Please contact me via this thread, PM, Facebook, or ingame. My full ingame name and FB contact is Jason Maximus Landon. I hope you all will come out and support the community. As always, have fun and Good Luck.

    You can add Southern Fortress Engineering (SFE) to your sponsors list. I'll contact you on Skype and have more of a chat with you there, but essentially, we have been trying to get low and mid level events happening for a while but are unable to commit the time to run them ourselves. The idea is to familiarise new players and older players alike with our brand and have the event pretty much pay for itself from a marketing point of view.

    TTY more on Skype.

    Sounds really interesting and it can even increase the player base on Ark due to those events.

    Gonna attend the events and see what happens :)

    I'm going to wait for now to add more events in Event area 2 due to the weak spawn rate. I'm considering making a cheaper event option there which will have a max of 20 tickets to see if the spawn rate would hold strong enough for a 30 min event with only 20 hunters grinding. The prizes and ticket cost for an event like that would be deflated.

    I have received a couple of nice donations, so I will be adding a new puny event to the roster soon. I plan to have a max of 20 tickets and set the event time limit for 30min to see how the spawn holds up with 20 participants. I am currently on Calypso, so check back in about 24hrs for an Event Area 2 hunt.

    This is a great idea, would love to see it continue!

    I'd definitely join the nusul/bokol hunts once the maturities get straightened out. Great incentive for me to start and plow through those missions, but until the higher level bokols leave I'd just be throwing away peds. Hopefully the Ark team can get this done soon!

    You will tend to find in events you might not have the issue of larger mobs depending on the number of entrants as there are people happier to take down the larger mobs :)

    excellent news and thanks for the ones setup so far I have run several myself before and am aware that it can be costly to setup :) good luck and I will be attending more of these :)

    The aim with making the mobs closer in danger level is so that the lower level hunters will have a more fair chance at winning an event. There is a better chance to loot a high loot from a L18 Bokol Alpha than a L4 Nusul Young. So, I don't want to discourage people from joining due to a less chance of getting the big one.

    You're welcome, it has been like working a job setting these up. Any help with making sure that your friends know these events are going on is greatly appreciated. I am confident that these events will slowly grow in size and benefit the community of Arkadia. So, I am happy to risk my ped and time for the greater benefit of stimulating the economy here. I will also be happy to help support your events. Let's just try not to have conflicting events at the same times :)

    It was a good idea to have 21 max participants for puny event. The spawn and mob density were good. Ty for event Jason.

    PS: Nice event poster Billy
