    I think this would be a good Idea, many of us stopped due to how bad the return was because of the key values.

    Personally, I'm not really interested in investing another month of my time given my chances to win. So I just think its a good idea to review the time aspect of any future Arkadian events to make them more attractive to potential participants.

    Tryx, that last rant of yours makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    As for not allowing the winners to enter, I don't think this would be fair. I'm sure a few of the winners of lower prizes weren't going full on to win but just got lucky in the placement.

    As for the higher winners, even getting the key tt back probably doesn't fully compensate them (although it's a damn good thing MA/ark did, and I don't think they could have done any more) so it's probably unfair to disallow them.

    I think the next event should have a ped restraint. That way thoose damn al bout money players wont have an advantage as I cant compete with that otherwise it wont be fair. Hmm w8 I might have stumbled upon my own feet here.

    Bah gah shit. Or maybe some events could be for ppl with a shitload of time and some for ppl with a shitload of ped. Hmm nah course U should pay 2 win. This working hard for something bullshit should be removed from games al in al. If U cant buy it quick its not worth having. ..........

    Back OT.
    Thx Ateam btw. I started to worry for abit but U came trough. Im hoping this is for al keys that this has happend to since the change. Only thing I could have asked for earlier is a statement from U guys when these disscusions took of that U were looking closer on it to make sure this to kill alot of speculation. Other then that good job-

    Guys, there was an issue with the event and Dave has written his response in the OP. Players who participated will be compensated and winners will get their prizes. This is a big step in this game where losses are not usually addressed. Another event will happen and all will provide a chance to compete and hopefully win a prize.
    The events details will be published when the Ark team are ready and it will be another great thing for Arkadian players as there will be a chance to get more cool stuff.
    This thread will be closed if there continues to be fighting between players. The referee has made his final decision and the OP states that decision.

    As a player/investor on Arkadia, this is exactly the kind of response I was looking to see. Thank you Dave, A-Team, and Mindark.

    Thank you Dave for investigating this issue.

    From my perspective a refund is welcomed and also unexpected!

    It is unfortunate that the numerous rules and problems with this Gold Rush Hunting event will cast a long and dark shadow over future events.

    As a game designer, I'd hope team Arkadia has a focus on creating a positive and fun experience for their users. The rules and problems with this event created something ugly and twisted. Something not fun.

    If I never see the inside of Aakass State Penitentiary again it will be too many times.

    That being said, the prizes were fabulous.

    Thanks again.

    I wasn't involved in the event but huge respect for coming out and explaining about the issue and resolution.

    Hope other pp's are watching and taking note.

    Well done guys, nice to see.

    Lost a considerable amount this event, mostly mining but good to see that some of it will come back to me. Also kinda exciting, I didn't keep track of how many keys I did and what tt value, so it'll be a surprise!
    As far as the time is concerned, I think they did this to make it more fair, since different instances have different amount of enemies in them etc. So instead maybe a instance limit? To make it 100% "equal" you could have each player be able to enter each instance level xx number of times and then they can go in after that but won't get any points? Idk...I'm not good at designing these sort of things but I absolutely agree that some sort of limit needs to be implemented.

    It would be really sad if this would indeed be the final word, because so far only one of multiple issues has been admitted.

    David, you've just convinced me to make Arkadia my home planet.

    This is the kind of responsiveness to issues that the game needs.

    Thanks so much!

    Is there any date when we can expect our money to be returned?
