    as I know 100% I don't qualify for any prize, and just cause it so happens I tracked accurately my spending and returns in Gold Rush 5/7 instances, I'd like to share with the community, as I know there are many number loving crunching players out there :)

    So ... I did GR category 3 ...

    Used only melee (Songkra & Shagadi with melee amp VI) + tagger ...

    Number of instances : 11 Total hours : 22h

    Creatures killed : 2,203

    Damage inflicted (according instance report) : 4,864,000

    TT spent (Including armor, no fap was needed) : 16,895.86 PED

    TT return : 15.142.20 PED

    GR category 3 points acquired : 3,150 (had a 500, a couple of 100 and rest were small ones)

    Highest loot was a 275 pedder. Loot was usual TT stuff with only 2 items (guns of about 110% MU).

    Apparently one can say I took quite some loss : - 1,753.63 PED. However, if you put that into percentages related to the overall roll it comes down to 89.63% return :woot: ... quite inline with the 90% loot return theories, isn't it ? :cowboy:
    Yet the lack of MU makes that TT loss an actual loss ...

    Feel free to share your experience and returns ...:yoda:

    I did GR 1, spend 20 hours farming about 500-550 magurg breeders per hour (10771 total kills).

    My returns were dreadful, 850ped loss, albeit 83% returns overall. I don't think I qualify either with 7147 points. I did not get any of the 1k or 5k point tokens.

    Personally, I did like the farming, I liked the evade rewards. The losses were partly due to overkill, and I agree with the MU on the loot. It's 'meh' at best. I don't think I will be participating in the next GR as the returns cannot be covered in cat.1 unless you get first place and sell the apartment instead of keeping it.

    Similar to the Op, I got returns of almost 95% on Cat 2, but nevertheless, it was about 500-600 peds tt lost.

    More you cycle, the bigger the negative, even if it's only a small negative ....... lol. Barely any mu from the loot.

    I did GR3 Total ped spend 13k in the and the returns where -74 ped. So a profit with MU. I was hunting with Herman ASI TEN tier 10 full row accu enhancers. (I didn't calculate the enhancers into the price.). Overall It was a loss forme cause I crafted the hides and stuff into terxtures and lost bigtime on that. I managed to get 8.7k points in 11 runs so 22 hours. mobs killed each run was between 300-400. and I looted 1x1k point container. I'm not sure if i'm eligable for a prize since last month I would be in the top 3 witht these points, but I think a lot more people where hunting this time and actualy farmed untill they got some 5k's.
    It seems I did pretty well on the hunting side not so much crafting but at least I know I have an eco setup now to get these numbers without any realy high hits.
