    Pre-release event for New Starter Equipment!
    June 13th to June 16th 2014

    Now is your chance to get your hands on an Entropia Universe starter pack before launch.
    Starting your avatar's career is about to get much easier. With a selection of three brand new starter packs featuring the new Harrier Armor, Weapon, Fast Aid Pack and more, you will be ready to jump right into action.

    The new starter packs, labelled Bronze, Silver and Gold will be available for $5, $15 and $40 respectively. The Silver and Gold packages will also contain an amount of PED, the currency of Entropia Universe, so you can participate in the economy right from the start.

    Starter packs will be available to new players at account creation. For existing players, the starter packs will be available in the web shop that will soon be launched at https://account.entropiauniverse.com.

    To introduce the new Starter Packs, this weekend we will stage an event for all level of players with custom starter pack as prizes.

    He he, I was going to ask if those two were special spawns, or if Oratan Slasher Thugs from other locations also did count.
    But I see the other locations have been added, so that answers that question.

    Seems like a good strategy: having the spawns spread over so many locations, might help with keeping kill stealing and other unpleasantness at bay. Although I haven't been to the Caly event; so no idea if the kill-stealing there was bad enough to make people quit the event.

    Appreciate that the event is also held on Arkadia.
    I have to admit, that previously I was wondering why a MA promotion was held on Calypso only.
    So, are the other PP's also following, over the course of the next few weeks?
    Enthusiasts could then follow the events around; like a 'Tour of the Universe'. View attachment 9556

    It's very nice to have an event where DPS isn't the deciding factor.
    I saw some genuine newbies on the winners list. Which is a lovely deviation from the standard. View attachment 9557
    And even though (to me) the prizes are not worth the PEDs it will take: I'll probably still participate.
    To add to my Oratan mission, and/or help out starters, who can't solo this mob, in a team.

    And from people who used it:
    View attachment 9558
    The H-DNA is a one time consumable, that offers you the opportunity to get revived on the spot.
    You revive with the same amount of health you would normally get at a revive.
    It just saves you a trip back to the hunting grounds.

    Anyone know how many mission points these mobs give?

    EDIT: Turns out it's 10 points, in case anyone else wants to know.

    Two thumbs up! Glad we're having this event on Ark too. Only thing, let's hope these spawns are very dense, esp since the slashers don't have a lot of agro range. There was definitely a problem at the Caly event with ubers and mid level players running around collecting all the mobs for themselves. The event was fun but the lack of mobs was a small problem at times.

    This is probably a dumb question but how will the highest loot be tracked? Is it something recorded server side or will Entropia Tracker data be used?

    It's good that I got a bunch more points left on the oratan mission chain.

    Guess I got a good incentive to go kill lots more of these ;)

    They use the server data, that's how they know who made the kill shot in each team.

    Just did almost 2 hours on them. The "Slasher Event!" first global was me and my friend, me killing it. If calypso winning loots were any indication, I guess I got a small chance of winning something.

    Anyway will be back for more ;)

    Good event, good loot!

    I compiled a top25 list from Entropialife's global feed for Oratan Slasher Thugs, so there's of course a chance that tracker has missed some globals, but it gives me a nice idea of the current global sizes needed (atm. lowest is 58peds btw.).

    Yes, i filtered out everything else, only Thugs,
    if ($t[3] == 'Oratan Slasher Thug') { $globals[] = array($value,$name); }
    and
    if (!in_array($name,$filter)) { (to filter out if some names are in the top25 with 2 or more entries).
