    were those 2 spawns "clean" i.e. only thugs? spawn @ Repulse was very clean hence I remained there...

    I feel ya, I also stopped when i got a 77 pedder... later on figured "fuck it, ima play it safe", played for quite some more hours and got an 85 pedder... I really thought that 77 would had been enough for this.

    Agreed! Initially I was in it to win it, I admit that, however I started to get cold feet when several ubers started to pop up on the tracker, some of them beat me & some of them didn´t so it´s all dandy, however wasn´t prepared for that kind of competition even if it indeed was a free for all levels event, however only proves package it´s worth fighting for I guess?! However my final push "playin´it safe" as you put it Cail was fruitless...so not sure what I could have done differently reflecting upon it...fun event eitherway! ...and big up for you Cail, providing that scoreboard! I must admit that triggered me...would be neat if that was a permanent feature ingame for events like this!

    regards!

    Not to be pushy, I know the Dev team is busy but does anyone have an idea of when they are going to announce the results?

    Aaah, sucks to be me then @ spot #26 :(, but sort of expected Ark team wouldn´t hand out generous extras like Caly team did, had no reason to, just like I don´t have to stay on Ark, so it´s all good! Gratz to the winners!

    No need to get upset or say you’re going to leave Arkadia because you did not place in the top 25. There will be many more events to come in the future, no need to worry. This is actually the first time I have ever placed in an event like this. In all my years of playing I have never seen such a well-played and executed event.

    What I mean is that the spawn rate was at such a perfect rate that there was no need for anyone to come and try to steal kills. Like on calypso players would just come and steal your mob and not say hey sorry or anything else. It seemed even though no words were spoken everyone who participated respected each other’s space and mob.

    And while you might think that you lost. I think that everyone one including you who participated in this event are winners, for acting in such a manner that allowed the event to be enjoyable to all. So you may think man I did not win, but in my book you are a winner like the rest of the participants who acted in such a manner that made the event a success without any major issues.And you have to remember events like this are not mandatory for pp to do most pp do it for the community, why? It shows the commitment they have for their players not to mention anything the pp gives as prizes are taken out of the pp own pocket on returns that they would have gotten. So those would will say stuff like well the oil rig needs to drop more oil or this needs to drop more remember this ”NOTHING IS FREE” it cost someone--- somewhere--- something.

    And to the A-team a SPOT-ON event with great spawn rates, and a lot of areas to hunt so the lag would be at a minimal (which I had no lag issues myself).

    I´ve no issues with the Ark Dev team or the event per se, was more or less flawless! Just raises some questions regarding the prizepool though as Mindark hands out 30 prizes on Calypso yet Ark only gets 25...? still puzzles me...

    Calypso had 25 prizes in their event too but as some mistakes were made when they posted their winners list they felt they had to incl the previous announced winners even though some were pushed off the original winners list. See Bjorn|Mindark post here:

    Right as jenny fer said Calypso was to only have 25 to begin with. Calypso and Arkadia are 2 different owners David did this for the community and his planet not because it was mandatory but because he wanted to support MA’s decision to have new player starter packs.

    No other planet offered this event to my knowledge and while it was a pre-release event MA did release the items in the web store in the middle of the event to allow people to get the gear without competing in the Arkadian event.

    But even with that being done David did not shut the event down he continued with it even though it took away for the pre-release stigma of getting something before everyone else. I personally was upset with MA for the way they handled it, but hey ma will do for its self before it does for others.

    And as I said before anything a PP gives out whether it is a prize or a free gift it comes from their pockets. It’s like any business I have a pizza shop I give away free pizzas to different organizations as donations. It cost them nothing but cost me time, product, pay for employees, and such, I do not donate to everyone who comes to my door or I would go broke.

    See any business has a budget they must follow in order to exist, if they exceed that budget then it cuts directly into any profits they would otherwise be making. And without profit you lose things like pay increases for the employees, expansion of the business, and any basic progress/advancement of the business in general. Here in the EU it is a bit different when a pp does nothing it turns into NI, or if they get to greedy it turns into RT. So you have to have a happy balance and a pp that really cares about their planet and the progression of it.

    I think if you really take a look you would see David and the A-team have done more for the player base of Arkadia than many other pp to my knowledge and they have pushed tooth and nail to get things done. But I understand you are spot 26 and that was so close but how many events did you competed in and not win? Life is not always puppy dogs and puddles; life is full of disappointments and failures mixed in with joy and happiness. What we do and how we react to them disappointments and failures will define who we are and how people perceive us as an individual/person.

    Right anthony, I´m biased obviously as a loser here & so are you being a winner in this event, so no point in denying that, so I feel no more need to arguing about this with you anymore, this event has taken way to much energy already. I´m done mate...however big up for this community sorting out the winners before the Devs did! :D

    Who ever said you were a loser? I said
    So please don’t try to spin my words as I have chosen them carefully.


    What it seems you fail to realize it a lot of the people who placed spent hours on end even days running through the missions and killing the Oratan. What it seems is that you feel you are or should be entitled to have a prize. The rules from the start said top 25 and that is what they paid it did not say top 25 plus anyone else who feels they are entitled to have a prize.

    I tried to be nice and explain the issue as well as others who did not win either, but it seems you have a lack of the ability to understand that this event and any other event will have those who win and those who lose. If you cannot take losing in a dignified manner, then I would suggest that you not compete in any other event.

    I did it to help support my home planet Arkadia and to finish my mission, if I placed in the top 25 hooray if I did not then o’well there will be a next time. But I went into the event for support and to complete the mission if I had only went there for the prize I would be setting myself up for a disappointment if I did not win. Which is what it seems you did, I was considering giving up my spot to let you fall in the top 25 but how would that be fair to the rest who put in just as much effort as you if not more and did not place?

    Take it as you like sir in all competitions there will be winners and there will be almost winners. And those who whine and cry about not winning well….. they are the true losers for not knowing the true sport of a fair competition. A lesson to be learned here is not everyone will win; it’s how gracefully you lose that people will remember. So all your grtz to the winners is insulted and covered by your complaining that you did not win. Seems very poor sportsmanship if you ask me

    First of all think you misunderstand me completely mate, indeed the rules from the start said top 25, but so it did on the Calypso event, now what I´ve failed to figure out, asking staff here on arkadia etc, is who provided the prizes for this event?

    was it;

    A. Mindark
    B. Arkadia Dev team

    I assumed after the cockup on the Calypso event that it was alternative A, hence I think/thought they should grant Arkadia the same gesture, in this case bit biased perhaps but still...if Calypso gets 30 prizes so should Ark imho...

    If (and if I understand you correctly you claim this is the point? btw you seem to possess alot of info that would´ve been useful for me entering this event) it´s in fact B. Then no problem...case closed! 25 winner it is!

    except from that I would like to see a live scoreboard on events like this, various communities been asking for it for years now, system still lacking it...

    regards!
