Taking the advice from here to heart. Ermmm... crickets. Just Mechs stomping the Underground which seem to have taken the place of the epic Oratan attacks. This is not meant as criticism, not from this one anyway as there is more to do on Arkadia alone than I have money for, not to speak of the rest of Entropia. And it's also not meant to pick up a discussion about the missing prizes from the previous Goldrush for which there is a separate thread. Others are entitled to their opinions but I made this thread for a specific request. It is hard not to notice that something must be wrong, possibly between Arkadia and MindArk? The 7-month Goldrush format began with so much enthusiasm, the structure hinting at a pattern which could extend for years to come (thinking e.g. of the armor plates - unlimited version of Pulsar 2, continuation of the series plausible). Also for those with no chance of winning, loots were attractive in the beginning but went downhill half way. I couldn't sustain it after the third installment. Is this a hint? And when it was finished, all came to a screeching halt. Deafening silence ever since. Calypso just started talking about its coming Merry Mayhem with updates to the format. Arkadia is overdue with announcing anything at all, the usual schedule seemingly thrown out. Folks are scratching their heads over what might be the reason. I'm aware we're not entitled to know details of backend dealings and communications, but I feel it's within the bounds to ask if there is something to worry about. It is us who are funding all this, collectively. How big are the unresolved issues, whatever they are? Thanks for any enlightenment.
