    New Event Details

    From February 1st 2017, the new event cycle will be run monthly, in conjunction with Starkiller’s LA
    The format will be similar to that used in Merry Mayhem
    Some rules and prizes have been tweaked based on player feedback

    Frequency: This competition will be held calendar monthly

    Location: Planet Arkadia

    Songkra Valley [32488, 26149, 159] - Previously Known as Arkadia Land Area 6
    Khorum Coast [9115, 27387, 105] - Previously Known as Arkadia Land Area 3
    Sentosa's Reach [14845, 32276, 144] – Previously Known as Arkadia Land Area 4

    Prizes

    Prizes for this event are as follows and prizes may be increased depending on activity and sponsorships.

    1st Place – 10 Arkadia Underground Deeds (or PED Equivalent)
    2nd Place – 2000 PED + 10 Neurostim-A
    3rd Place – 5 Arkadia Underground Deeds (or PED Equivalent)
    4th Place through 10th Place – 1 Arkadia Underground Deed (or PED Equivalent)

    Kickback Prizes (NEW)

    Whether you make it into the prize rankings, you will receive the following based on your activity in the month:

    Every 50 globals = 1 Arkadia Underground Deed (or PED Equivalent)

    Note: Prizes are intended to be more valuable for 2nd place to encourage using strategy instead of raw power.

    How to Participate

    Just hunt on any of the participating land areas (see above) on Arkadia from February 1st through February 28th. 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.

    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 - 300% (Changed)
    * Ubo - 200%

    Khorum Coast

    * Mutated Hadraada - 125% (Changed)
    * Mutated Zadul - 125% (Changed)

    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.

    Be aware that the 400-999 rule is your ADJUSTED score not the value of the global as stated. That threw me off last month i stopped hunting on a 79 ped nusul on the last day i thought could put me to 20th place but it turned out to only be worth 1 point not 74*600/10

    Yes, that's covered in the multiplier section.

    Bump it up.

    They will be increased a bit more :) We haven't updated the Ark forum's thread yet with the new info, but now you can basicaly farm to your hearts delight, and if you over reach (meaning stick to a first place by a huge margin) you can donate some money to the Nashville Humane Association (link below) and run down your score with more globals until you feel like it's good enough :)

    As soon as possible The event will be updated on this forum aswell :) So stay tuned

    Due to the high spike in the AUD pricing, we will be handing out PED equivalent prizes for this month and subsequent months, due to the instability factor of the situation.

    Apologies for any inconvenience.

    February 2017 Winners

    [​IMG]

    Congratulations to TheProfit for winning the top prize with 340ped bonus. He was not only able to beat the top HOF on Songkra Valley but he also managed to beat Shamshe on the final day, all because he scored a 296 global to improve his base score.

    This was a very interesting and competitive event. For March, we have reduced the number of globals to qualify, which should mean that it is more important to get the bonus points. It should also reduce the grindyness of the event a bit.

    Activity for this month will dictate what April's 3rd Year Anniversary blowout event will be.
