    3000ped without terra amp would mean just one prize and no bonus for that day for any other places - thats what I read out of the rules ...

    If the winner is not using a terra amp then the drill will not be awarded.

    I agree, its promiting fun and i bet anyone will drop some probes even if mining is not their main profession.


    Will newer be absolutly fair unless you want to remove incentive for skilled ubbers with big ped card to participate.
    Newcomer vs vet player?
    - knoveldge count -timing, terrian, spots, mobs and avoiding them ect
    -skills count
    -ped card count - amps used, ammount of probes at disposition
    -gear count - multiple finders, fast extractors and ofc amps like amp 13 or terra 10
    -time player have at disposition in 24 h appart working, sleeping, children ect
    All that is still kind of pay to win or in EU language - higher DPS win .

    Realy fair event could be borring for many players but who knows maybe ppl could find it fun and i see it like this -

    Instance created for mining event in mode nobody visited it before and nonody know terrian, mobs, spots, resource respawn timing ect.
    Once entred in istance all your skills go to 0 - so skills do not count.
    All your gear and buff items ect are locked and you cant use.
    All participant can buy same event gear and tools from instance event trade terminal wich will last only for this event in istance.
    All participant can buy same limited ammount of probes.
    Instance time is limited to 4 or 6 hour to make it equal for working ppl, and those who have 24 hour at disposition.

    Hmm acctualy there is a way to make it abit easier for everyone to stand a chance and thats to change loot to global. Meanign not the highest loot but the highest global.

    Maybe I missed something, but the highest loot will be the highest global unless there are no globals.

    Higest loot might just aswell be a HoF. However when not counting thoose towards a comp everyone has a bigger chance. Ive participated in a few of thoose events and in thoose almost everyone feelt a chance to win.

    ..or
    make it a real lottery. some random number generated by a tiny imp in a box and this number is the target to aim for, or to cluelessly hit by accident. ;)

    say the random number is 123. the winner will be the avatar hitting a claim with 123ped in it. if there´s no bullseye hit the nearest claim either higher or lower as said random number wins. we do have 4 decimals but these cant be used for stones/ingots so time of the claim is a winning attribute, too, if there were two or more players near the winning number.

    this would make this universe a real lottery, as we are told it isnt. ;)

    But then no ubers would spend tons of money competing it would be a noob only event and low amount of ped burned. These events are not to be fair and only to give players free stuff, they are to generate tons of revenue for the PP and MA to keep in existance and without those heavy depositing ubers with big PED cards neither MA or PP's would exist at all and then there would be no events at all.

    This event at least give a small margin of chance against an uber with huge PED card compared to other events but it still needs uber large PED card players driving the event and yes having the highest chances of winning.

    PP could make an area where Players can create their own events like you suggest and players can fund them yourselfs but I doubt MA or PP will ever organize and gift big event items for it without the huge grinders.

    Skill needed for amp10 is level 18, so it's nothing to do with being uber. In fact, if you can use the terramaster8 (REC 55) I'd say you're an uber miner as that's the highest level item available to miners.

    What you're complaining about is that someone with a lot of money in a real money game has a better chance than someone with little money; what a surprise lol

    Anyway, if someone wants to burn up 50k ped in markup buying amp10 so they can win a 10kped item then i'm happy he's putting those peds into the game.

    Prizes are subject to one (1) per avatar. Once you have won a daily event, you will not be entitled to a secondary daily prize however you can still compete for the Grand Prize.

    so there are 31 days in January ;) thats still a fair amount of chances to win something.
