    Gold Rush 2017
    (Gates Open) 12th May 00:00:01 UTC - (Gates close) 20th May 15:00:01 UTC

    Attention Gold Rush Enthusiasts

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

    The Gold Rush will be run over a course of 7 months, separated into 7 events, each events will last a period of 9 days.

    Rules

    Hidden within the loots is a set of Event Tokens. These tokens have points allocated to each of them. These points are as follows. (one set of tokens for each instance level)

    Cat.1 Event Token - 1 Point
    Cat.1 Event Token - 5 Points
    Cat.1 Event Token - 10 Points
    Cat.1 Event Token - 20 Points
    Cat.1 Event Token - 50 Points
    Cat.1 Event Token - 100 Points
    Cat.1 Event Token - 500 Points
    Cat.1 Event Token - 1000 Points
    Cat.1 Event Token - 5000 Points

    You will need to obtain the "Gold Rush Category 1 - 7/7* (2, 3, 4)" 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. Please note, that these tokens cannot be traded. Once these tokens have been looted, the points will be automatically counted towards the mission when you loot any of the "Cat.1 Event Token - 1 Point" from within the instances.

    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

    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.

    * Category 1 is only available to avatars with less than 125hp

    Example: Someone with 124.9hp can join Category 1, but if you have 125hp you will have to compete in Category 2, 3 or 4.

    ** if you should loot a token that will increase your points with equal or more points than the threshold for the Neurobiotic Booster is set, you will receive one (1) Neurobiotic Booster immediately and the counter for the next Neurobiotic Booster is reset. (this is a separate counter than the Gold Rush Points counter so your points will not be affected)

    Example: You have 87 points in Category 1* then you loot one Cat.1 Event Token - 5000 Points, this will give you one (1) Neurobiotic Booster A10 1mg instantly. So now you will have 5087 points and if you loot another 13 points you will get another Neurobiotic Booster A10 1mg and so on.


    !!! PLEASE TAKE NOTE THE FOLLOWING !!!

    PLEASE ABANDON THE MISSION : Gold Rush Category 1 - 7/7* (2, 3, 4)


    If you have these missions activated, points will be allocated to it and they will not count towards your final score for the new chapter. These points will be null and void. We ask that you abandon the mission before you accept the new mission and enter the gates. Please pass this message to others who might ask .


    With that said, best of luck to one and all. When the event starts it will be announced across all media platforms. So get your equipment ready, load those weapons and get ready for the Gold Rush 2017.​

    Ma'am, research indicated the shotgun to the face is much more efficient. Would you reconsider?

    *edit, after posting I realized this might be seen as a personal attack. NO! It's just the lackey offering a better option to mow down magurg breeders.

    I can't get in. I've deleted and added and deleted and added different things and still can't ****ing get in. Extremely annoying. It shouldn't be this difficult.

    I don't know if you've realised but you effectively have take the mission twice before it works. I wish I had taken screenshots this time so I could share them to clarify the process. It's quite bizarre and I don't know why they have implemented the process that way.

    The same bug we had in the previous GR is present.

    The timer is wrong, and you are in the instance with other hunters.

    Got screen shot if required.

    Ah, I got it now, yes, you have to take the mission(s) twice. Strange.

    Thanks

    Don't forget the downtime announced for the weekend by MA.

    So if GR is extended, it has to be worked around that.....
