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.
