    Doesnt matter who ends up with the prizes, its still good for those of us who tend to stay on arkadia. Increased hunter numbers will boost the economy while they are here. Increased loot from increased hunting will drive down MU on some common useful stuff (which tbh kinda sucks for me), and that gives opportunities to crafters, increasing demand for mined resources which is good for the miners. Looted and crafted items such as weapons will be easier to sell.

    Meanwhile we have a major content release halfway through which should throw some interesting things into the mix. Will the uber societies decided to concentrate on the caly event with the new boss mob? I sure hope so cos that gives me a chance to catch up to the global count here.

    Personally I intend to keep doing the things I enjoy doing and if I end up in the running for a prize thats super. I'll continue to hunt eco and benefit from those people feeding the loot pool by hunting uneco to boost their global numbers. For those of you who are worried about the ped card drain or competing with ubers I suggest u consider dropping down to try the lower categories. Theres a limit to how much money you can lose on halix and I doubt Jimmy Stryker will be hunting them.

    Hey KJ, I've just finished with the image of the leaderboard of each category. Once Starfinder has the time to code it, I will update it on the forum with the live feed.

    Bingo! Anyone that cares about Arkadia should be dancing in the streets about this event. This isn't much different than the publicity and economic injection the Olympics provides for its hosts.

    So what if the ubers win the prizes, the items will make their way into public view either by being sold or used around others on Calypso. And that's what we should care about most... exposure to Planet Arkadia and what it has to offer.

    If you're not going to participate, and many of us simply are unable, then the best thing you can do for this planet of ours, is welcome the participants with open arms (then sell them something)! ;)

    I wonder about Korwil and Teladon as Highest Category. Aren't Yuka a tougher mob than Teladon? Why would anyone shoot Korwil when Teladon clearly global more often and are much easier?

    Teladon and Yuka should swith place - dunno if it was a brain fart that moved Teladon on line with Korwil?

    And Yuka and Teladon are easy mobs for ubers and there uber armor as they do Stab, Cut and Impact

    I think the reason why not many are hunting Korwil is that
    1) they are fast
    2) they do a lot of crit
    3) they eat your armor pretty fast
    4) they have a fast regen
    5) they do pretty much cold damage (no uber armor protect for that) Ubers are not used to be hit that much :)

    So stay away - Korwils are mine :)

    ... but what do i know - still a noob running here.....

    I cant belive it! Yesterday, in a team with a member of my society, i won a Herman ASI-10 Smuggler (UL) with a value of (+ o -) 300 peds and another gun (L) with 90 PED TT value. You can see it in Entropiatracker as "Weekly Top 5 High Loots" of Oros. Nice gun and very nice MU: +3500...!!!! :) (Both are in the auction at this time).

    Let me tell you a thing hard to believe: the Oro who gave us the global was the first hunt. Given the potential magnitude of the MU after that we went to the auction to sell the gun. Never more true: one death a great
    global!!!

    For thouse that can read spanish in this link you will find the hisrory of this nice global: here
    Thanks to Lootius and to Arkadia (¬°Cyrus!), the home of my society.

    Well I dunno about the whole "dancing in the streets" attitude.
    That seems overly dramatic.
    How about a smirking indiffernce instead?

    To those worried higher-level hunters might suddenly swoop in halfway through the event and make your previous effort futile - I personally feel that type of strategy would undermine the charisma and efforts exhibited by David and his staff in creating events such as these for the benefit of the community (both Entropian and Arkadian).

    I'm planning to compete in category 5 (Huons) once the Eomon/mutant invasion is over (presumably Sept. 6th). Good luck to all participants!

    The dropdown lists only shows mobs that have globalled in the last 30 days - this is so the list is not populated by mobs that are not yet ingame...

    I dident exactly get a lot of "heads up time" so unless I were to drop everything I had in my hands at the time I were told they wanted the scoreboards - then they wouldent be online when the event started.

    I have cleared my calendar today - even tho I had stuff planned.. And im building the scoreboards today.

    http://www.entropiatracker.com/planetEvents/Category_6.png <-- First one almost done. The trick is to incooporate the rules in the code. This is a new set of rules compared to what ET has previously offered, making it so you can not win 2 simultaneous events running on Entropia Tracker. This does not make it faster to build the scoreboards.

    I hope you understand.

    Don't mean to be demanding, but maybe it would be possible to include actual number of points while it's not too late to redo it? Cause it would be nice to have an idea how many points are separating one place from another. Or maybe that's an idea for some text based list with more places than only top10?
