    Gold Rush 2021
    (Gates Open) 12th September 2021 20:00:01 UTC - (Gates close) 12th October 2021 00:00:01 UTC

    (what is UTC? click here)


    - Attention Gold Rush Enthusiasts -

    The Gold Rush event is upon Planet Arkadia again. This year the event comes with some interesting prizes.


    Rules

    Based on a completely random cycle, when you kill a mob in the instance it will award you points that will be added to your mission that you accepted at the quest giver. You could be awarded 10 points for killing a small creature or a larger creature - It is completely random. They are not calculated on maturity or by items dropped in loot.

    You will need to obtain the "Gold Rush mission from the Gold Rush Quest giver first before you will be able to enter the Gold Rush instances. You can enter these instances however many times you like during the Gold Rush and there is no key required to enter, the mission itself acts as the key.

    Total score will be calculated based on hourly point averages to derive each participant's 20 hour normalized points.

    Example of how it is calculated:

    Avatar 1
    Total points: 2000
    Hours: 20
    Average points per hour: 100
    20 hour normalized score: 2000

    Avatar 2
    Total points: 3800
    Hours: 39
    Average points per hour: 97.44
    20 hour normalized score: 1948.72

    As the event uses normalized score that means that Avatar 1 would win as their normalized score is higher than Avatar 2.

    This event is intended for solo hunters. Any attempt at abusing team mechanics or any other Entropia Universe systems or features in order to gain an unfair advantage over other participants will be grounds for disqualification from the event, forfeiture of any prizes, and possible sanctions imposed on one’s Entropia Universe account.


    YOU CAN ONLY WIN PRIZES IN ONE CATEGORY
    YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE IN MULTIPLE CATEGORIES, ONLY ONE


    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. So make sure you decide which category you want to compete in beforehand.

    You will have to complete a minimum of 20 hours in the Gold Rush Instances to qualify for winning a prize.

    "You will have to complete a minimum of 20 hours in the Gold Rush Instances to qualify for winning a prize."

    No maximum? or normalisation? so if we hammer the gold rush for a month solid we get a win from most time in instance?

    For sure, now that I have verified there are no time limits, I'm out. I'll bet money I can name the winners before the event even starts.

    We need clarification on this "Total score will be calculated based on total accumulated score". Are we talking 20hr average or really total score sum? If its the latter I will fly right back to calypso, because then this event is nothing but a gift to big wallets and botters and you know that very well.

    I totally agree with what said more than once above. It's a very very very bad idea if you can do unlimited hours and the score is not normalized.

    It has to be either

    a) normalized, average points/hour
    or
    b) as in Mayhem, 20 hours and possible to do 20 hours again, and again, and again


    Otherwise, as people already said, it's just a big gift to all the hard grinding boters - and that is just bad both for the game and for Arkadia reputation.
