    It should at least be noted that the 5k coin was discovered in Aakas 3 (Grats Kitten)

    Was thinking of trying this event but with no score normalization and no upper timelimit im one of those who just dont have the budget to hunt in instances for a month so i guess i stay on calypso, maybe i come over to try a key or two just for fun.

    It's funny how everyone is saying this, I think a lot of the good prizes will go to people who only ran moderate amounts of keys.

    This contest is no different then any other DPS oriented event. HM and MM are in par exactly as this event will run and turn out. History shows it as big ped card spenders winning and so it shall be this time. I am not complaining about it, it should be this way this is after all a way to get big depositors to deposit more so these events are smart to run on MA's part. I will just not compete for points as I know for fact I could depo and run and depo and depo and depo until my bank account says no more for you and it will never amount to those others that depo bigger then I do over and over and over and longer then I can. Tis the nature of the event and I accept that.

    I do see if a group sets up a team appropriately the team can become competitive as a combined force. But alas I dedicated my resources to MM this year for this type of thing and can't continue this amount of time and ped cycling any longer then MM.

    The mobs in aakas are shared loot, so they will override any team settings you make.

    I have a question:

    6 keys lost so far to disconnects!
    Are these a total loss or will there be any reimbursement?
    Just wondering if I loose 20 or 30 during the event am I out of thousands of ped?

    all good sorted ty Taco :)

    PS If this happens the trick was to go back to the last door and move slightly to the left of it which triggers a quick fix somehow. Thanks again to TacoTuesday for saving the day :)

    IF you have disconnects or lost keys then please make sure you raise a support case ! if you havent already.

    The More Tickets MA have to sort out the quicker they might resolve the issues.

    Agreed. There have been many reports of people having problems in mainly the Aakas instances. Enter at your own risk.

    The A-team has been notified several times about the problems in Aakas over the weekend and it is undoubted that it's being worked on.

    (and I want an icon that I feel for The Propet, but there isn't any :()

    so i've lost my second aakas key 9 today.

    because of invisible mob i couldn't hit but which did hit me, i hat to relog. the relog didn't take longer than 20 seconds, and immediatly after logging back in, i read "leaving aakas" and was dropped out of the instance.

    i will not participate any further in this event because of this bug-soup. well done!

    btw, my team member read following messages:

    [Team]: the Prophet disconnected.
    [System]: The last team member left "Aakas 09".
    If no one in the team reenters within 10 minutes, the area will be unloaded and your progress lost. The area may be unloaded sooner than that if its internal timer expires.

    so this clearly is a bug in my opinion, as it was for sure not even 30 seconds until i was back in.

    If you have to relog in an instance, make sure your team member actually enters the instance to keep it open for you. Don't log out if you're the only one inside. And if you frequently have connection problems, have a friend with a reliable connection host the team.

    It seems they have recently made some changes to the way teams work in instances. Team functions used to be disabled inside, but now that you can change settings while inside, the instance also seems to lose track of the team immediately after relog. So keep someone inside at all times.

    :yoda:
    -if your have invisible mobs its a graphics error... scroll out to 3rd person, and move the view around till they come back... floor vanishes, see through walls... just scroll out and move the view till it can be seen again.

    -If the spawn room does not spawn <second pillar room, last before boss>, go back to the televator and jump at the wall on the right side as you enter <the one facing the room that did not spawn> it will make them pop up.

    -the "sewers" are drowning mobs :( be careful

    -do not leave an instance if your solo, it will end... you must have someone else inside before you log out, or its over.

    -if you get stuck in a wall, or a corner of a path.... hit "T" and go back to a re-spawn, don't re-log.

    -if you DC, or get booted due to a server reset, log a support case. If it is a server reset they should refund the key <and have in the past>, If it was your error I doubt they will refund it <I had closed the window by mistake, and was booted when I logged back in... I don't think that is refundable, since its my fault>

    Good luck keeping up :angelic:
