    I hope there is NO rare loot message for the tokens, otherwise it would be too easy to figure out the drop cycles.

    Once again arkadia team you havent learned ANYTHING.

    No time limit? no normalised score?

    95% of the people (including myself) that would have participated, will just not take part because of that.

    This event is reserved to nolifers and korean brothers than can hunt 24h a day with multiple people playing avatar. So i will call it "ARKADIA GOLDEN GIVAWAY TO SHARED AVATAR"

    Common persons with a life dont have a single chance if you know how points are dropped*

    Even Mindark (greedest people on universe) understood that they have to put a time limit if they want a lot of people to join there events.

    Why am i even losing my time talking to the walls here...

    I think hardest categories to win are 1 and 4. 1 because low-level and low budget players and 4 because of uber players. Need to choose wise were to start.

    Stop whinning about no time limit, calypso events are mostly for ppl willing to take out their skills so they can enter certain cateegory, then getting the strongest gun possible to ensure their winning....rly much better way to make events, think twice before writing anything ppl. You can either have events with no time limit (nolife) or limited event (dps run), at least on ark you will get skill pills and evade missions.

    can we get a confirmation that arkoins will be/will be not a part of the loot ? Will become a TT food in few days after the launch of the event, would rather avoid that.

    So these instances are new ones? Or are they Aakas with a twist? No fee to enter so no risk of losing things if one disconnects? And no need to create teams to avoid loss?
    I might just try it out then. I am concerned that if they mimic Aakas in mob levels us skill-restricted people may not be able to take part - which beats the "everyone can take part" statement.

    Once again absolutely the biggest mistake Ark can make, and they are doing it again!

    Normalize the scores like caly does. You will get tons more people to participate.

    Do you REALLY think you found a better way to get people to participate? Trust me, Caly has figured this out already.

    Under the current system you will have 2-3 trying hardcore, and the rest of us trying it for shits and giggles. Fix it, and you will have 250 avatars doing a full 40 hours or 60 hours, whatever the threshold is.

    Someone there at ARK is very stubborn, and they can't see what is best for the community AND for ark's pockets!

    I agree, a 40 hr max would be much better, as caly has learned. But there would need to be more prizes to deal with the higher volume of participants.

    I'll try the instance just to see what it's like but probably only once since I have a job and therefore no chance to win a prize, and even if I didn't have a job, playing the game 16 hours a day is a bad thing. I'll be doing looking forward more to the evade skill event.

    I'll repeat what multiple people already said - making this event without time limit or score normalization like there is in Calypso events is a huge mistake.

    Not sure what is your thinking but I can bet that you would get much more turnover if average player would stand a chance to win.

    I think you all are severely underestimating the costs for hunting 24/7 for 30 days. This is an endurance contest not a uber dps event.

    OP Updated:
    Op updated again, missed to add this bit of information before:

    You will have to complete a minimum of 65 hours in the Gold Rush Instances to qualify for winning a prize.

    Lmao...no we didn't. Not at all. We estimated it correctly. Math don't lie. And with normalized scores it is not an uber dps event either.

    Sorry for the noob question... I usually don't participate in any events (except WOF B.M.A.); do I understand this correctly:

    Avatar 3
    Total Points: 10000
    Hours: 80
    Average points per hour: 125
    65 hour normalized score: 8125

    Avatar 4
    Total Points: 2000
    Hours: 25
    Average points per hour: 80
    65 hour normalized score: 2000
