    Magurg ANNIHILATION!
    View attachment 8834

    With up to 150k PEDs to win!

    Back in ancient times, Magurgs were peaceful creatures, living side by side with the Ancient Arkadians.

    After the destruction of the Arkadians, a subsequent ice age occurred all over the planet.

    Trying to escape an icy death, they moved into a series of deep caves.

    During an investigation of an uncharted area of the Aakas underground, the IFN team unwittingly found their hidden lair, releasing them into the underground areas.

    In order to better understand these ancient creatures, tests were performed on the male gender. They became furious after their separation from their female companions.

    Breaking free of their captivity, the Males have claimed Arkadia Land Area 1 as their new home, killing any humans they see as a repayment for the tests inflicted upon them.

    In response, the IFN has declared war against these rebellious Magurgs!

    *********

    Additional Rules:


    • [*=left]Events are for miners and hunters.
      [*=left]Teams can join only the first 100 days. Meaning they can only win top3 prized each day and not top4-5 for tickets.
      [*=left]Teams must have same team name at all times during the event.
      [*=left]The event will be not running during VU days in case there is a bug related to the VU that will cause a suspension of the event.
      [*=left]Please make sure to have EntropiaLife running and join the event to be created there soon to not lose any points.
      [*=left]Each avatar can only win 1 price each day. Meaning can't win both on hunting and mining.
      [*=left]In case of a VU day, daily event will stop as mentioned while "most globals" and "highest HoF" still counts during that day.



    EntropiaLife don't have the function to make teams join the event when they are created. So form a team and let me know the teamname by posting it here if you want me to keep en eye for it in case I miss the count. It isn't necessary as we will do our best to not miss any point :)

    Due to lots of confusions we have received. I'll be making 1 event that lasts 100 days for hunting and 1 for mining instead of one each day. Please look at EL and join there as the old daily event that were created are now deleted.

    Link for upcoming events http://www.entropialife.com/Events.aspx?M=viewUpcomming

    All you have to do is to register on the 4 events that were recently created (Mining got 2 and hunting got 2) which will make it easier for participants to join. You don't need to join a new event each day as before.

    Sorry for the confusion this may have caused!



    *********


    Let's show Magurgs the red eye!


    Enjoy!

    Hi, I don't understand how the daily 4th and 5th prizes work. Is there restricted entry to the final event? What about 1st thru 3rd? Do they get an entry ticket?

    Hi Kikki

    You have 100 days to place your self on 4th and 5th to win tickets for final event, so yes they are restricted. All you need is to hit that spot just once.

    If anyone wins more than 1 ticket, he will have less opponents on the final.

    I like to see someone trying to create a new style of event :) But I guess we need to clear up a few things.

    1) On daily event, do u need to get 3 globals or could you get a prize with 2 really good globals?

    2) On final 2 weeks, is your score the total of your 5 best globals over the 2 weeks, or is it the sum of your 5 best daily globals , and therefore your score will be sum of 70 globals (5 globals per day * 14 days)?

    3) Assuming final weeks score is sum of 70 gloabls, if you only get 4 globals on one day will they count or will that days total be disqualified from final score?

    4) Will daily prizes be paid daily or at end of event?

    Interesting, might have to have a go at this one :)

    I'm not convinced that the anti-HoF rule is a good idea. The amount required to get a HoF varies quite a bit at different times and depending on other events (I think it was over 700 PED at one point last weekend because of all the Oratan HoFs) so people in different time zones may lose out or have a greater advantage. It would be better to have a set cap and say that anything under that amount is allowed, whether it's a HoF or not.

    In the Battle for Power we used to have a rule where we had a maximum 400 point score from any global, so anything of 400 PED or more gave the same score. Maybe you could do something like that.

    Slither has good questions too :)

    It's in the rules:

    • [*=left]Events are for miners and hunters.

    So you can win every day with your level 10 terra-amps ;)

    1) Must be 3 globals a day. We pick up the highest 3 globals. As it is counted as points, it means we will have to add those points to get a sum as stated on the example above.

    2) It is based on the 5 highest globals during the whole 2 weeks. Example:

    Day 1 u get 1 global, day 2 u get 0 and day 3 u get 0.... day 14 u get 4 globals. Those = 5 globals.

    3) It wont count. You just need 5 globals during the whole 2 weeks. (5 highest globals) as stated in number 2.

    4) As counting the points and getting points from EL takes time, we will have to delay the prize giveout 1-2 days after the day is over. If I get the results fast, I will give the prize for daily at same day.

    Teams can only join the 100 days of event and cannot join the final event.
    Meaning your team can win each day 700 PED if you get highest 3 globals each day.
    Team name must not change during whole of the event.

    oleg made an good point,
    some times an loot of say 250 ped can be an winning globalsize or it can be an hof(in which case its shit),so why dont you make an cap to the size of the hof regarding points awarded ?

    ps:you do realize that miners can very easily global using big amps without spending much ?
    and before miners react to this,yes i realize you will spent a lot on the amp + mu
    but that wont benefit the la-owner
    as where an miner using level13 amp might need 3-4 drops for an global..am hunter might go through 1 hour shooting for an global

    Miners with lvl 13 will spam yes- What will they spam? HoFs and not globals... So they win the highest HoF perhaps which is 10k PEDs.
    We are counting highest globals and not HoFs.

    We are aware of the days of Oratans where the global size getting higher. This way, hunting Magurgs will give higher globals which adds big point for the hunter. Oratans are here each 2 weeks anyway for 2 days. So let this be a "bonus" for the hunters.

    actually its exact the other way around,level13 amps give globals a lot,not hofs,about every third or fourth bomb dropped is an global

    i really dont get why you do it this way with the hofs ?
    why punish an hunter that gets an hof ?
    it doesnt inspire hunters this way to grind a lot,and i like to grind for 10 hours an day..
    why dont you make the rule that any loot over 500 ped is counted as 500 points no matter how high the loot was ?

    that way an hof just counts as an bigsized global

    Yes, I see your point about the mining HoFs, they do tend to have a lower HoF threshold which can mitigate the advantage for miners using big amps. Not being much of a miner myself I'm not sure exactly how it's likely to work out but I guess we'll find out over the first few days of competition.

    PS Maybe now is the time for me to start mining :D

    That way, it will kill any hunters joining as the lvl13 amper will win for sure as it has cap to 500. Meaning it will get 200ped HoF and still count as global, while the hunter might struggle to get this 200 PED of globals/HoF.

    Lvl13 works this way to amp an ore find by x21. On planet side the "usual" hit unamped is a V, lately changed to IV (new mining system). V is around ~3-4 PEDs and IV is ~2-3 PED. Adding lvl to this we get lets say ~60 PED global. Unless it hits a normal IX (~12 pedder) which will give ~250 PEDs.

    Treasure is normally VI finds fyi.

    Lvl13 might be a winner with getting highest HoF and most globals (10k+5k). It all depends on the luck and PED card :)
    I still can see hunters in good advantage without the cap. I don't see your view of calling it a "punishment" to the hunters.

    If you track the Magurgs on EL, you will see the average loot. You can make your calculation based on that.

    Keep in mind that Magurg stalker got near same of Proteron Mature HP. So big HoFs is to come with spam to beat the lvl 13 :)

    This is my first event, so as Oleg said, lets see how it goes with the first runs.
    As for now, I'm unsure of changing any rules yet. But this might happen :)

    Well I'm going to have to read this over like 5 times - it sounds very confusing to me (call me slow if you want) I do know I love hunting those mobs and I would love to see some high activity there. I do know from another event that adding mining does make it unbalanced.
    I saw the response someone wrote regarding that - and I still don't think that solves it. I can hunt for an hour and get no global - if I mine with lvl 13 for an hour I'm going to get a crap load of globals.
    But from what I know of the LA currently it's going to be hard as heck to mine there - I tried it some and had bad results.

    Also, you are counting on Oratan event? That is a sure thing that happens all the time? You know it will continue?

    PS. the link on entropialife ad didn't work and neither does the event it says it runs for less than 1 day.

    We will see the Oratan event repeated at regular events though I don't know the frequency. We have been told of some of the changes that will be made in the March VU to fix event issues. The implication is that we will see repeats of the event past March.
