    New Event Details

    From March 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 – 2500 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)

    Grinder 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 March 1st through March 31st. No registration is necessary.

    How to Score

    Your base score will consist of your top 8 globals and HOFs between 50 and 399 averaged. (Add them up and divide by 8)
    This allows you to improve your score the longer you hunt.

    How to Qualify

    Only a total of 8 globals NEW! are required to qualify.

    You can view your top 8 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 - 167% (Changed)
    * Ubo - 200%

    Khorum Coast

    * Mutated Hadraada - 130% (Changed)
    * Mutated Zadul - 130% (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).

    Grinding Down Your Score

    To promote strategy with the lower globals, it is possible to reduce your score by the following actions.

    You can purchase specially marked up synthetic mind essence from the Songkra Valley TP [32488, 26149, 159] for 20ped to start your grind-down period.
    It will last until you buy a marked up nanocube from the same TP for 5ped or when the month ends, whichever is earliest.

    • 2% from all your globals (from 50-399 only) will be removed from your score.
    • Globals from 50ped to 399ped during this time will not count towards your average.
    • Global/HOF values 400ped and above will still give you bonus points.


    All peds gained from the purchase of the SME and nanocube for this feature will be donated 100% to the Nashville Humane Association. This is a charity that is dear to my heart. You may freely purchase these items together, even if you have no intention of activating this feature. Receipts of the donation will be provided.

    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.


    Change List for March

    • Mutated Nusul are breeding like rabbits and as such are getting stronger.
    • Mutated Hadraada and Mutated Zadul have their multipliers increased from 125% to 130%
    • Mutated Zadul will become less in number over time
    • Reduced the total number of globals to qualify from 10 to 8 (trial)
    • 2nd place prize has gone up by 500ped from 2000 to 2500
    • Added new grind-down rules

    Due to the high spike in the price of AUD's we will be handing PED equivalent quantities for March.

    I think the scoreboard has missed a couple of my globals. Will wait until tomorrow and see if it updates with them. Had several on Sentosa's Reach last night so should be around 12-13 total globals.

    THanks but it has been resolved. I failed to see that 5$ was going to be delayed in updating the scoreboard due to his office remodel.
