    OK, So you can take all 4 missions and enter all 4 instances so that leaves a few questions:


    1) If I do 70 hours in level 3 and 10 hours in level 4 will I have a normalised score for 70hrs in level 3 or will it be 80hours?

    2) Assuming above answer is 70hrs I then have a chance to enter more than one category if I have enough time. I can only win one prize so how would you decide which?

    3) If I do 10 hours in level 3 then abandon mission and do another 70hrs in level 3 would my normalized score be based on 70hrs or 80?

    1) Normalized score is per instance, so it would be 70 hours in category 3

    2) If you manage to win two different categories then the higher one will be prioritized.
    Take Note of this as well: (Quote from OP) If you abandon the mission at any time during the event, All points will be lost and they will NOT be replaced. You will have to start from scratch

    3) total time spent in the category instance will be counted, so never abandon the mission like it's stated in the OP and the mission itself


    Corrected point 2, sorry for confusion

    If i understand this right it IS possible to compeete in more than one category?

    So i.e. i could do 66h (to be safe) in cat 2 and then if i will see i have enough time i could try and do another 66h in cat 1 too and they both will have separate normalised scores but if i win in both then i will win only one (higher) prize?
    (Also what happens if i win 1st prize in cat 1 and 2nd prize in cat2? - just teoretical but still possible to happen ;))

    Do i understand this correct?

    Participating in more than one category makes sense if player actually has way more time (i.e. trying to win in two categoies are about 4.5h per day every day during event which is not that high).
    I think i could pull this off with going in two different cats and particpate in haloween on Caly too ;).

    Already answered, in your example the category 2 second prize would be prioritized as that's the higher category prize.

    My wife tested it earlier, took all 4 missions then went in level 1 got some points and then into level 2 and got some points. I suppose it's possible that you can't step down in levels, she never checked that. I'm sure mathias will clear it up if you're having trouble fluske.

    Grindfest :D Just saying thanks. Because now and then you have to say something not only when things go awry. Everything works smoothly and seems well balanced. Returns so far are good enough to proceed for a while, similar to the Smuggler Camp/Jori instance. A few occurrences of lag, but nothing out of the ordinary.

    Is there a way to track accumulated instance time other than keeping a tally myself?

    I tried out Cat 1 Instance and was amused that I could actually kill Magurgs without issues (could use a better power fist though). I'll see if I can find a way to improve my funds to at least finish the MB1 mission 1 for some skill reward. Right now that's not happening.

    I got a global though! :biggrin:

    loot cycle is interesting. initially was koins, tokens, ammo and shrapnel. then moved to no koins but lots of standard loot. now is a bit more balanced. i've looted 3 or 4 lvl 50 axes (TT food) and I think one small piron. someone else looted an esi.
    Also fluske is looking pretty good for win of cat 4. after 6 hours my biggest single token us 50 pts.
    But TT return seems ok. so hopefully won't screw my wallet too much grinding through to the end. Hoping to get that cat 4 evade reward twice.

    regarding timing. I think u just need to count instances. 33 runs will get u over the minimum time if u dont crash.

    I'm loving cat 1, lots of arkoins friday night, but they seem to have dried up, I decided to buy a sword to try out melee as I seem to be able to take a lot of beating in my musca adjusted and I am skilling like a fury. 800+ killed and 136ped worth of globals so far. Yay!

    My mouse finger is going to be a claw by the end of the month lol

    I have gold rush cat 2 mission but want to do some cat1. IFN terminal doesnt show the other gold rush missions only the magurg breeders for cats 1-4. and I can't enter the other instances unless i have the missions. Am I doing something wrong?

    You will have to abort your current gold rush mission before it will show you the other gold rush choices again. If you cancel your current gold rush mission, your current gold rush points will be lost. However, your progress in the 4 breeder missions will not be lost.
