    I may have found a new problem with the missions. Apparently the original "Arkadia Gold Rush Category X" missions are available again from the IFN terminal. (these are the ones that we were instructed to abandon prior to starting the " Gold Rush 2016 Category X 1/7" mission. So naturally I accepted the former when I saw it available again at the terminal. Upon hunting in the instance again, I looted 112 point tokens. The first 12 were small tokens I think 2 (5)s and 2(1)s, these points were credited to both missions, bringing my total to 12 and 795 for the above missions respectively. Upon looting a (100) point token. The points were only credited to the "Arkadia Gold Rush Category X" mission and not to the 2016 version. I am concerned that my points will not be summed correctly.

    Just to mention that I have already lost out on 500 kills (because I abondoned the magurg breeder mission) in an attempt to get the 2016 mission to work. I also earned points in the instance before the mission was "fixed" and lost out on those too.

    So, I guess my point is that I advise against taking the gold rush missions available at the IFN terminal for now. I have a support case in and will update if I get any information back from MA.

    Not for me. I still have Cat 4 points from years before.
    I finished 2k mobs from old mission within the first hour of GR2016/Cat 3.


    General question:
    I'm sure, last year my Points (avg. /h) was massive higher (2-3times).
    First my thought "a bad run" - but after 7 h it is still lower avg.

    So the question is, do you have the same feelings or maybe still your logs from last year?


    cheers
    J.

    Dear Arkadia Team,
    please make some more advertising. Youtube and alike is free and a good place to tell people what it is all about.

    Even as long time player I find it sometimes hard to fully understand the events and the prizes. Show people how it works and what they can get.

    Please please... more and better adverts - outside the forum.

    I can't enter cat1 for some reason. The instance avatar does not do anything for me.
    I opened the gold rush cat1 at the guy in black/gold armor standing next to the instances. Do I need to do anything else?
    Thanks
    Theo

    Check if you got the gold rush genesis (saying 1/7) mission, that is the one you need. The other mission is the breeder mission, which is not needed to enter, but the rewards are nice.

    found it ty, you need to click the event organizer twice to get the mission opened. One time doesn't do it, as the opening is two-steps

    You will still be able to participate as you have the mission activated already. - If you abandon it and move to another category, you will not be able to take it again. The Quest Giver will check your HP before you start a mission, so if you already have it, you will be able to participate.

    so the 20 hour timer is separated for the Categories ?
    lets say i have done 20 hours in the cat2 , and i want do try cat3 . will the the time spent in cat3 add to the 20 hours in cat2 or it will be counted
    separately as cat3 time ?

    You can't even enter. I tried to check out cat 3 and 4 just to plink a few and see what the damage is like, but no can do while your mission for the chosen category is active. I don't know exactly what would happen if you've done your time and then abandon to try another one before the event is officially over and the winners declared. I'd consider it very risky. Experiments should be done before you settle on the category you want to finish in.

    Well, since we're over halfway through it looks like I won't be participating until next month. Oh well, I knew I was going to miss out on some things during my move :frown:
    Guess I'll have to keep a better eye on the forums, wouldn't want to miss the crafting part :happy:

    Hard to keep an eye on any info if event is annouced 5h before it starts (apart of 'comming soon 2017' which was ridiculous statement). 5h earlier notice can allow you to... optionally prepair cup of coffee or to do some homework before you sit at pc trying to get the mission to participate in golden week (yes, not Gold Rush - that is name for annual event, not this hunting thingy we're having now) and not to reschedule some bigger things, like moving houses IRL.

    I think this event should have a Consultation prize for the person in each Cat that gets the most Cat.# Event Token - 1 Point,
    because it is just dumb luck that those individuals did not get a 5K token, they clearly put the effort in.

    They fall like rain, but to be frank the way to win is with maximum overkill and just collect as many tokens as you can manage to spawn in the 20 hours, statistically if you murder 10's of thousands of magurgs you'll get all the different tokens.

    Well for one thing I couldn't exactly reschedule my move and wouldn't even if I could. Also I wasn't necessarily faulting Arkadia for a lack of communication, if I'd been able to log in this week it would've been obvious via swirls etc that it was going on. I was more musing that I need to keep a better eye on the forums because usually my only source of info as far as events etc is the launcher.
    If you're upset with them not giving information until 5 hours beforehand I understand that. But me not even seeing it until 5 days in is my fault, not theirs.

    Until shortly before start I was under the impression from earlier statements that it was meant to begin somewhere around the last days of 2016. But everybody was bitching and moaning "Where is our Gold Rush already!" Got the funny feeling that maybe they reacted and decided to start earlier than originally planned? Like damned if you do and damned if you don't. I vote to give them a break.
