    Rules

    • Event will run for 6 weeks starting from 3rd September (0000) and ending on 16th October (2400) MA time.

    • A "global" is any loot registering a value higher than 50 PED, including HOF (Hall of Fame) and ATH (All Time High).

    • EntropiaTracker (www.entropiatracker.com) will be used to track and decide upon the winners. Arkadia Studios will be committing 3 computers, running the tracker client to ensure all globals are tracked. We encourage everyone to run the EntropiaTracker software to assist in ensuring accuracy of data. If you have any concerns about tracker not recording a global, please contact Starfinder with a valid screenshot of the global.

    • Colonists may compete in as many categories as they wish, however each colonist is only eligible to win one Main Prize, i.e Smuggler items.

    • A single colonist can win multiple Bonus Prizes.

    • It is possible, for example, for a single colonist to win one Main Prize and three Bonus Prizes.

    • If a colonist qualifies for more than one Main Prize, they will be deemed to have won in the higher Category(ies), leaving the lower Category's(ies') Main Prize pool(s) open for other colonists.

    • Each Category has a set of 2 mobs (creatures). Each global on either of the mobs in a Category will earn a point. You can choose to hunt both mobs or concentrate on one mob in each category.

    • In the event that there is a tie for any of the prizes, the first player to have achieved the points in that category placing will win the prize, and the other will take the next prize, if any. For example, if two players each achieve 20 globals in their category, and this is the higest result so they appear to have tied for first place. The first player to have reached 20 globals wins first prize, and the other player wins second prize.

    • Final call on prize winners will be decided by Arkadia Studios.

    • Top 3 Prizes for each category will be ready for collection from Cyrus right after the event. Bonus prizes will be given one week later, after gender of the avatars have been confirmed.

    • Arkadia Studios takes a strong stand against foul play. Anyone found trying or caught cheating will be given a direct ban both on the forum and in-game for life.

    Prizes are seriously insanely awsome. And all of categories are really doable for medium level hunter. My only worry is that once ubers on Calypso see the prizes they will flock here and leave no chance for us mere mortals.

    And also concerning cheating. Would you consider someone running avatar 24/7 (Obviously by several people) as cheating? Cause such concerns have been raised during similar events on Calypso (like Merry Mayhem), which led to MA imposing time limits. Because if such "teams" behind one avatar are allowed, once again regular hunters will stand little chance.

    I know that but it still does not answer the question of if the Dev team will be able to view those players globals.

    For example you wont be able to view my globals on my profile because its set to private.

    Good point. I highly doubt they will take that into account because there is no way for them to be certain who is controlling an avatar. Which is why MA never went down that road.


    The other issue is people who work are unlikely to win because they simply cannot put the number of hours in as someone with all the free time in the world. So I'll just stay well away from this competiton.


    The solution is allowing an X amount of time for each avatar within the competition. Which I don't think is enforcable apart from using the number of hours logged in approach which is the case with merry mayhem. The problem there would be someone cannot do other activities for example say I'm competing in competiton but also want to bid on some items in the auction which come up after I've completed my allocated hours. I cannot do that without being disqualified from competition. This is a real possibility if Arkadia estates are released.


    Edit:
    I just saw the mission counter thread. That may be a solution could use missions kill X amount of teladon or Korwil say and the avatar with the most globals wins. If an avatar kills more than allowed he/she is disqualified this is something that mission counters can check.

    You just have to ask yourself this question.

    Do you have the funds and time it takes to hunt 6 week on the same mobe 10-18 hours each day?

    I did MM 2010 where there was a cap on how much time you could use (30 hours = 5 days). During this time i cycleded a lot of peds and did get like 85% back. Like a loss around 3-4k peds.

    Now try to multiply this with 6-10. Then ask yourself again. Do you have the funds and time to do this event?

    --- Comment to David and A-team ---

    David - Maybe a good idee to set a time cap like in the MM event so we dont see avartas hunting 24/7 with several users or ppl get sick hunting too much?

    Is it allowed to have pre taggers, fappers like in MM event on Calypso or is this cheating?

    If data is gathered and sent to ET, why shouldn't A-Team see it? They'll use raw data provided by starfinder, for sure, not the web interface itself...
