    Don't worry; we'll all understand that problems may appear!

    Plus that was middle of night for most EU (later edit: EU used as short form of Europe not Entropia Universe) players, so 12 hours from now on would be a much better time for us! :)

    I wouldn't say most players have it in the middle of the night. Also people plan there days around a major event like this. It is really screwing with my ability to participate. Thanks for stopping me from spending way more ped than any prize I would have won. To point out that 12 hours delay was half my available time for the event.

    My apologies, I wasn't clear enough - I used EU there as an abbreviation for Europe, not for Entropia Universe.

    For people like me that 12 hour means nearly 24 hours as I am not going to start a 2 hour hunt at 10pm. Guess I need new plans for my day off.

    Don't you think that's "a bit" too dramatic?

    Mathias was here at expect start time to make sure everything goes well, they for sure wanted the event to start as programmed, yet a technical error happened (and yeah, errors do happen, even to the very best of us), he committed to fixing it in 12 hours...

    Now for this thing alone you decide to bash them and threaten to quit... well, if you think that's a good enough reason to quit the game, then all I can say is "have a safe journey and don't let the door hit you on your way out".

    no I wouldn't quit over one thing but many things, has no one else noticed that all I do is rant or promote my event, I am quiting over the growing money pit this game is. It doesn't feel like I am investing but getting pumped for every pec possible. It Doesn't feel like a game right now. so I am out.

    Can I retake the mission and enter a different category if I abandon it (with a loss of points, of course)?

    It's sad that you feel like this. However to make it seem like the Arkadia team is the main reason and state that they "blow" feels like an overreaction and a way to put the blame on someone/something else. If this would have happened on Calypso you wouldn't have heard anything for a day. Dissapointment was in all of us, the earlier statement you gave feels more like scape goating.
    Matthias took the time to monitor the start of the event and make a post with 15 minutes of the official start time. Even came online to make people aware of it. As far as failed starts of events go I think the Arkadia team handled it properly, rather have a quick troubleshooting and postphoning then sticking online hoping for the best.
    Regardless, good luck out there. Always sad to see a player leave the game especially seeing as the event you did in the past was fun and people were looking forward to future events. Good luck, hopefully you find you bliss someplace else.

    Don't quit yet, save it for when Neverdie installs TP fees.

    So you need to choose which cat you will be competing in, no chance to compete in multiple cats like last time, that's ok.

    But, if I compete in cat 4 and I also do some runs in cat3 for fun will my score just be factored on my time in cat4 or will those fun runs in cat3 mess up my score?

    Yes, but your score will only be counted on your active mission.

    The category you intend to compete in needs to be active all the time.
    Mission Description:
    Please note that you should never abandon this mission or you will lose all the accumulated points you have achieved up to this point.
