    avatar 4 wouldn't get a score because he hasn't completed a minimum of 65hours. If this isn't stated in the OP then it probably should be in order to prevent confusion.

    Otherwise someone who has a
    Otherwise someone who has a really lucky 1st hour would just stop hunting and win the event.

    Is there any skill requirement for these categories ? Like if someone is lvl 40 he wont be able to enter or finish cat 4 ?

    You choose the stage you want to compete in. Clearly the prizes are better at higher levels but the competition will probably be tougher.

    Good luck everyone. I generally do pretty pathetic at stuff like this concerning hunting so will leave it to the pros. With that, me and my AUD's wish you the very BEST of luck and may you hit several ATH's :D

    This is a new format for Arkadia so its probably best to see how this one pans out then perhaps next Gold Rush we'll see the teams version.

    Someone else may have the same idea with Cat 1 as you or many people may have which means Cat 1 will actually be a hotter contest than the higher categories (just as an example).

    Then you have to consider the cost for reward.
    Do you want to blow 40k trying to win the Cat 1 Prize or spend the same amount for a shot at the Cat 3/4 prize?

    Plus the evade rewards-which are very nice btw-are higher in the higher categories,How that balances out with cost per reward will depend on the hp levels of the mobs in each category.

    There's a few things for people to weigh up here before they decide which category to have a shot at which is a bit more interesting than locking people in to a pre chosen category.

    I just hope its not an alt fest (but there is nothing that can be done about that anyway).

    I actually like the fact that we're not constrained to a single category based on skill level. If that were the case I would definitely be stuck in a category way over my bankroll and I would simply have ignored the whole event. As it is I will definitely take a stab at it, even if I don't manage to do 65 hours.

    This is easily derived from the numbers given. In cat. 1 you need to take town 2000 x 110 = 220,000 hp for a 0.8 ped skill reward, or roughly 3.6 ppm (ped per million hp - I just created a new unit :biggrin:). In cat. 2 it is 2000 x 1000 = 2 million hp for 6.04 ped or 3.02 ppm. Cat. 3 and 4 both yield 3.06 ppm.

    I hope the mob density inside the instances will be "reasonable", meaning that if it's so dense that you can't see the black on the radar anymore, then some people will just go in with massive amounts of explosives and leave no chance to anyone hunting the "normal" way at achieving a culling rate that could get them anywhere near winning a prize. That said, I'm definitely in for the evade bonus since this is my project of several months now, couldn't be any more convenient and I'm getting tired of Hadraada already (4k into stage 5 now, ugh). Thanks devs!

    Now given I know what my dps and dpp will be I just need to work out how much I will need to cycle to last 65 hours and work out if I have the bankroll for that. Part B is whether I can afford to increase my dps with reload pills. If I can't afford 65 hours then its a matter of which kill mission I aim for to get the evade.

    Hmm... Seems some of you are missing a point here, talking about the Marugs reward of evade and the 65 hour/for points to win... They are SEPARATE THINGS! You may be hunting the same mob in both cases, but if you don't have BOTH missions, you aren't getting both rewards! Or so it seems to me... If I'm wrong, Mathias can correct me...

    Yes, the missions are separate, but the way I read it is that Magurg Breeder 1 will be exclusively in Cat 1, Magurg Breeder 2 will be exclusively in Cat 2 and so on. In other words it won't make sense to get GR Cat 3 mission and Magurg Breeder 1 mission, since you will not get any points towards the Evade reward. In other words, it makes sense to discuss this together, since the separate mission is just a technicality (do remember to take it though).

    So Magurg is chaned in four different damage/HP group.
    What else is changed ?
    Presence of Aakas mobs in event istances, damage/damage type/HP?
    Rakta, Ubo,Yarrijak, Aakas defenders and dehera sentinels, margug female?

    If i understand this right - it will work very similar to Haloween Mayhem instances. There will be 4 totally new different instances with ONLY those new mob types inside.

    Of course my understandin might be wrong.

    Well it would be nice if event like this could only be done solo... so no support dps, no fappers only hunters vs hunters
    To me support dps feels like cheating... i think at least some of guys here feel the same way

    Also changed rules for max 65 hours in instance and how score is divided if you do more hours in instance dont realy encourage grinding. Why would you do 10 extra hours if there is a chance to acctualy lower your score?!?!
    The most fair system would be if only best 65 hours would count toward mission... So if hunter would do more than 65 hours he would only be able to raise his total score. I understand that system like this might be hard for Ark team to do... but please its also hard for hunters to grind for so long hours...

    Clearly you don't know what your saying. Go back and reread why there must be a time limit. It's now finally fair. There are no teams and sharing avatar between people won't help cheaters because of time req. Of 65 hr. There is no support dps. In the past people shared avatars to grind 24 7. The new rules prevent that from being beneficial. This is about the only way the evwnt is fair to all.
