    Explore the bounties of Sanctuary Cove and earn some PED doing it!!

    ---------------------------------------------

    Prizes available for all skill levels of miners and hunters!!

    ---------------------------------------------

    Concept:

    Starting Friday August 19th all unique to Arkadia items discovered within the boarders of Sanctuary Cove will come with a 50 ped bonus. Stackables unique to Arkadia will be given a 10 ped reward, and ALL unique to Arkadia resource claims will be awarded a 50 ped bonus as well. The trick is to be the first to find these things in Sanctuary Cove before someone else does. Once an item, unique stackable, or resources has been found and proof has been submitted into the ArkadiaForum event thread the prize will no longer be available for that specific piece.

    Example:
    Ospra is discovered while mining in Sanctuary Cove, screenshot is taken and submitted in this thread. 50 ped is awarded to the only the first player who posts a legitimate screenshot of their claim on this resource.

    Example:
    Herman Rifle is looted while hunting in Sanctuary Cove, screenshot is taken and submitted in this thread. 50 ped is awarded to only the first player who looted this weapon in sanctuary cove (once competition has begun).


    When:

    Event starts Friday August 19th @ 00:01 MA time
    Event will end once there are no more discoveries to be made, with new VU's remember to keep this thread in mind for additional peds down the road!!
    (we reserve the right to end the event at any time, all prizes up to that point will be honored)

    Does it have to be a global with arkadia specific minerals or just a find no matter the size? Same question for hunting.

    See few issues with this you state, resourses unique to arkadia!
    Players like myself started here so don't know what is on all planets.
    Like now since update I have collected over 54 differant mining resources.
    Do we just post thousands of screen shots and you sort it out , OUCH !

    You can utilize tools like entropedia.com or the wiki on EntropiaPlanets.com to help determine what may or may not be exclusive to arkadia. I'm sure the advisors will be happy to give you a few pointers as well. Hopefully that will help you differentiate the majority of what is exclusive to arkadia. When in doubt though, just go ahead and post it and if its not exclusive to ark then oh well. I don't mind sifting a bit, just use the next week to brush up on what is and isn't locally grown for both our sakes ;)

    Just to be sure, if I am the first to post a screenshot with Tiarak skin, I get 10 PED, right?

    Nice event you have here !

    That might be a problem, if you know Photoshop, you can post screens of all known Ark resources right after the event starts.

    Unless whatever you post must also be a registered with some tracker global.

    endy has good point someone can go out before starts and make all screen shots.

    Yes that's correct :)

    Photoshop is a threat in almost all screenshot based events, I've been doing events for quite some time now and have a good eye for what to look for. Anyone caught cheating will be banned from all of my events, and most likely from all player coordinated events in general. Not to mention the fact that since their dishonesty would be made public through them submitting their false screenshot and it being brought to light. Afterall, it would be much less risky to simply wait on the LA for the clock to hit 00:01 on the first day and simply shoot a few mobs to gain the first few shots. Also keep in mind that one person posting a bunch of screenies immediately at the beginning will be under a bit more scrutiny by all in the community I'm sure.

    Rest assured I have my means of verification and look to keep a fair playing field for everyone who participates, I appreciate all your comments on the matter :)

    Good event there Meculus.

    Let me add that with the new reputation system, some cheaters will be neg repped and if they get enough of it it'll result in an automatic ban from the forum...
