    I would like to know if the following are bugs or features in Arkadian instances:
    1) Jumping off the wall. At the top of the middle circular room with giant statue, along the walkway there is a gap where avatars can fall through to the bottom. From there they can then proceed to the final room with boss mob, hence bypassing the rest of the rooms.
    2) Running through the rooms without shooting, hence bypassing all mobs except final room.
    3) Mobs in arkadian instances don't get trapped. So it's possible to shoot mobs including boss mobs without taking any damge.
    4) Walking backwards again this can reduce the damge taken by walking backwards. Some mobs cannot damage you because by walking backwards their speed is so slow that they will never catch up to you.


    If you allow all 4 you would allow this event to be equal to all. If not then unfortunately the dishonest will continue using them and the honest stop, hence placing the honest at a disadvantage.

    If you disallow the only other alternative I think is to turn off instances until the "bugs" are fixed. Then everyone can compete on an equal footing.

    @sentenz I think buying arkcoins are allowed. In opening post cyrus is just coming up with an "excuse", for why NPC arkcoin traders are not yet available to us. Rather than just say they are unavaible on Ark they try to make a storyline around things.

    so what is that then ? what a rogue trader mean ? 'In a frenzy to capitalise on the excitement of Arkadia Gold Rush 2012, some rogue traders managed to position themselves among the potential Arkoin brokers.'.

    actualy..i get my ass out of here..this can be dangerous. no ofence. Seems like trading is rogue and under the law here:pP. I better stay and buy and sell ores or something on calypso. have fun

    Sententz,

    It's a storyline wrapped around this new event that Cyrus made so we can use our coins while they wait for the broker issue to get sorted. Don't stress, arkoins continue to be a tradeable resource and there is no problem with players buying or selling them.

    lol exactly. you are! cute:). i'm a hunter mostly..but i need traders on planets where i'm goin to sell my stuff...etc. I think they are very important..at least for me. So more traders..means more miners, crafters, hunters. Ofc ..this is in my eyes and is a personal opinion. I leaved many times from some place just becouse i dont have to who to sell. I remember the last event on arkadia..when i lost at least 10-15k ped from markup..just becouse of lack of traders...is very bad.

    omg! Yes of course he should apologise to the fictional characters he made up to entertain us. That makes perfect sense.

    Sententz, If you read the backstory of Arkadia, you would come to realise that there is a faction called the "Smugglers". One of them is a chap called Moonshine who illegally modified some IFN equipment (you may have seen some of the Smuggler weapons that have been looted on Arkadia). What Cyrus and the A-Team have done here is nothing more than write a bit of story into the event saying that the Smugglers (Rouge traders) have tried to infiltrate the Arkoin Broker setup, to account for the delay in getting the Arkoin brokers into the system properly.

    From what I'm lead to believe, the event is designed to put some items out to auction till the Brokers come online properly.

    It is not meant to frighten, insult or offend anyone, so don't fret mate, just carry on happily trading as you did previously. In fact, I would be interested in seeing your list of Ores and Enmatter as I need a few things myself. Please feel free to PM me regarding this.

    This is obviously a bug in the proxy on the bridge. Also this gos with point 2 bellow.

    This I will link you back to what I have posted before.

    In essence trying to use this as an exploit to gain more Arkoins will in the end cost you way more in lost markup of keys to get the equivalent amount of Arkoins.

    Most players can actually outrun or bounce the Bosses and still come out without taking damage from the boss, It's simple strategy. However we are planning on changing the gates @ the boss room to be more suitable and less restrictive, this also goes with locking the back gates (treasure room) until the boss gets killed.

    Other mobs like mobs in a room with 2 floors is intended that you can shoot them from the second story without trapping them.


    The speed of the mobs you likely refer to was intended so strategy can be used against them. Doing this will result in less damage but also less gained evade skills.

    The only common one I don't see listed is the following, which I will ask for the sake of completeness:

    Hire several teams of new players and equip them with starter weapons and ammo. Send the first team into the instance, then send in the next team ten minutes later, then the next team ten minutes later, etc. Instruct them to kill every mob except the boss mob, and then PM you when the job is done.
    At that time, have the team leader add you to team and you enter the instance. Run directly to the boss mob and kill it, then run in and loot the boxes, with "looter takes all".
    By that time, team two is ready for you to come tank the boss on their instance, so you go there and repeat.

    The benefit is that you get full loot from each instance with minimal time spent in any one instance, gathering the most possible Arkoins in the least amount of time. The drawback is that you don't get the skill gains for the mobs killed.

    Would you consider that an exploit or a strategy?

    I really don't want to sound negative, but frankly this is insulting.

    How exactly can we "hoard" arkoins when almost none are dropping at the moment?? Personally me and my team-mate haven't looted any in over 9 instances after the patch. I hard some other people have, but small amounts. So how many instances does it takes to loot some?

    I mean seriously, i know that item droprate might not be A-team's reponsibility, but in that case bug the hell out of MA to do something. Running event like this with the current situation is just ridiculous and on the verge of scam and false advertising.

    That's same like saying "Go buy Lottery tickets to win million" and there are no lottery tickets to buy...
