    If i had gone for level 13 amps from start i would have had a chance as i wrote erlier, still mad about the 13 level 10 amps with only 1 global, there was no point in crafting anymore when i could not get mining globals.

    My plan was to craft level 10 amps from L bp and then mine with them to get many miningglobals, then move on to hunting and hunt until i had as many hunting globals as mining, after that finish up with crafting on condition untill i had enough globals there, sad thing the mining was so hard :(

    Glad to see at least some people got some real fun and a good kick out of the event; I got a real kick on seeing how much fun and enjoyment some people had. RL generally precludes me from participating in most events but I almost feel like I took part in this one just from reading your posts, so thank you very much for that! :D

    As always there are some people that are never happy with any event. No matter how hard the PP's try, no matter how much time and effort they put in, and no matter how much the PP staff explain that "new system capabilities coming in will allow them to do more stuff for the lower level and new players and so that is why they shifted the focus of the MAIN EVENT later this year to target those people specifically" (YES, I am paraphrasing an earlier post or two), they will never manage to please everyone.

    Cyrenes' events sounds good, but anyone that has any PvP experience will soon tell you that a similar thing is going to happen in that too. There are people that live for PvP, have worked out exactly how the PvP side of things work and how to work within the limitations of the system to the best overall outcome. Therefore they will be more successful than most others...and as a result, then we will have another group complaining about how the event was set up and run.

    It never ends. All the PP's can do it try their hardest to please the majority of the people, the majority of the time. I have been underwhelmed and unhappy with things over the years but over those same years I have also come to realise that no matter what I think, they continue to try and improve each time. They don't always get it right, but at least they try. I for one applaud them for continuing to do so.

    There will be complaints about Cyrenes, Rocktropias and eventually Calypsos events are held too, just like there always is in EU....because those people have forgotten the core of what its all about; regardless of the RCE element or not......you're supposed to have fun.....its just that some people have forgotten how without putting a price tag on it.

    Just my 2pec...take it as you will.




    P.S - Before anyone has a meltdown and starts ranting one way or another, kindly remember to do so WITHIN the bounds of the Forum Rules. We're happy to read peoples feedback, opinions etc, but push the envelope too much and you know what will happen. Thanks in advance :)

    Ya, was a good competition, but I almost couldn't participate.

    Finished with 5 hunting globals, 2 crafting globals and I passed 5 D-Class Amps and 1 Level 12 amp to get a puny 55 peds global. All in all total cost of 150$ USD. Was a nice rush, but with 1 point... I'd be suprised I finish in the top 10 loll Well at least I tried. I see people like Graco that has 70 something points and toad with 17... even after being in game for 10 years I feel like such a noob :)

    Well congratz to Ark for organizing this, was great! (costly a bit, but about the same price as a good restaurant, but that lasted 4 days so bang for buck... not too bad :) )

    Bring on the next events (but not too quick so we can recover a bit loll).

    Cheers

    -Wolf

    PS: BTW, when will the full list of participants and ranking be available? :) I'd love to see the full list to see how many people participated and everyone's overall ranking :)

    It was clear the mining globals were going to be the bottleneck. I dropped my first ever level 13 amp and did not like it at all... when I realized there was no way to get enough globals from my regular mining style, I reduced the hunting accordingly and just made it match my crafting run.


    This is called Chasing the dragon and there is always a choice. Throwing good money after bad....

    There were good reasons the previous mayhem events were limited in time, and you just proved why that was. I think its not healthy to spend so many hours in a row. The adrenalin is a boost but a responsible company should not set up an event in a way it stimulates players to risk their health.

    That doesnt mean what you showed was not impressive, on the contrary :eek:

    Hey all,
    Greetings from Big Industries and entropialife.com !

    Was definitely a fun event. The contenders fought fiercely and I enjoyed myself very much. GZ to the winners and the good sportsmanship that was displayed by all. I didnt get to start the event till it was about 30 hours or so in, and on the last day I had to sleep a little that cost me a top 4 finish. However hats off to the ones who were able to dedicate the time needed.

    I didnt hide my results on tracker, but keep in mind that when you are crafting an items and it repeats the same score it registers in the brain a s a double score and is not valid. The reason for this is in the chat log for a very long time we had issues with globals being registered 2x because of a bug in game. This is something we may change in the future once we are sure that the bug is fixed! (so thanks for using entropialife.com)

    Here is my finish results:
    64 Hunting globals
    62 mining globals
    62 crafting globals

    Cheers!

    Salty!~

    I enjoyed the excuse to get back home to Arkadia! I can't wait until the next big VU so I can continue to spend more time on my favorite planet.

    Ok I'll revive the thread a bit as it's been a week already.

    Any new news? :)

    I know I won't score that high, but still anxious to see how I placed and if I got lucky in the draws :)

    Cheers and keep it up Ark Team!

    so this event is nothing more than another uber feeding event.... great... how about something for the 99% of us that don't have thousands of hours and tens of thousands of dollars a year to lose! i have been active in this game(off and on) for about 2 years. from what i see no matter how eco i play or what i try, globals are a 1/10th thing, meaning if i want a 100ped global i have to lose 1000 ped first, nice try (not really) with the event, but how about something ANYONE can win!
