How to Participate Just hunt on any of the participating land areas (see above) on Arkadia from January 1st through January 31st. No registration is necessary. How to Score Your base score will consist of your top 10 globals and HOFs between 50 and 399 averaged. (Add them up and divide by 10) This allows you to improve your score the longer you hunt. How to Qualify Only a total of 10 globals are required to qualify. You can view your top 10 globals and bonus points awarded at any time on the leaderboard @ www.tiny.cc/svboard At present the leaderboard will update daily between 00:00-03:00 server time. We hope to increase the update frequency in the future. How to Win Bonus Points Additional points can be added to your base score on a daily basis as follows: From your hunting: Every global or HOF between 400 and 999: +1 point Every HOF 1000ped or greater: +3 points From being the best every day: HSL (Highest Single Loot) of the day from the combined LAs: +0.25% bonus on the base score From being the best of the month: At the end of the month, the highest single loot (HSL) on each Land Area will be awarded a +5.0% base score bonus. From being lucky: This is the ONLY bonus award in which the mining profession can be used. In addition to these awards, looting a rare item will net you +1 bonus point, without limit. Examples include Piron UL, Gravis UL, mining sootos that trigger a HOF (swords, armor, modified nanites - but not jars, maps, paintings). * If any rare item is not accompanied by a global or HOF then a screenshot will be required that clearly shows the time, date and an indication of which land area because rare item HOFs do not have land area identifiers on them. From winning the weekly power-grinder events: Every week, there is an event on each land area. The prizes are: 1st place: 5 Neurostim-A + 10% score bonus to all swirls 2nd place: 5% score bonus to all swirls 3rd place: +0.1% bonus to total score See in-game event details to sign up for this event. These events are free to enter and are a good time to try to improve your score! Multipliers For fairness (parity), some mobs may have multiplier adjustments to their global values to make both land areas equal, based on cost to kill. They are as follows: Trophy Mobs * Mutated Nusul - 600% * Ubo - 200% Khorum Coast * Mutated Hadraada - 150% * Mutated Zadul - 150% Songkra Valley * Mutated Beladoth – No Multiplier * Mutated Otorugi – No Multiplier Sentosa's Reach * Mutated Madana – No Multiplier Each mob is weighted based on their average cost to kill so that no land area has an advantage over another and thus is open to all types of players, from the less seasoned (Khorum Coast/Sentosa's Reach) to the mid-level and up (Songkra Valley). Additional Rules and Considerations Teams are not permitted. However, you can use a fapper outside of team. Owners of the participating land area may hunt on either land area but cannot win any prizes. Sponsors can participate but cannot win their prize back. In the event that this occurs, the prize will be given to 11th place, 12th place, and so on.
