    Mining mania!

    [​IMG]


    Event Description
    Entropia Universe is excited to present Mining Mania, a new universe-wide mining event open to all participants on all planets throughout the Universe.


    Event Dates
    Start: Friday, March 13 2015, 16.00 UTC
    End: Monday, March 16 2015, 16.00 UTC


    Format & Rewards
    The participant who claims a mining loot closest to 150 PEDon each of the qualifying resources listed below during the event will receive a Mining Mania Reward Package containing the following items:

    • Mining Skill Implant (20 PED)
    • Level VIII Finder Amplifier ‘Athena’ (L) (208 PED)
    • 1 x Neurobiotic Booster M5 10mg (10 Hours - 50% increased Mining skill gain)

    Qualifying Resources
    • Alicenies Liquid
    • Belkar Stone
    • Caldorite Stone
    • Crude Oil
    • Gazzurdite Stone
    • Lysterium Stone
    • Narcanisum Stone
    • Zinc Stone

    Bonus Rewards
    In addition, the colonist with the highest single mining loot on any of the qualifying resources during the event will receive a Level 7 Finder Amplifier (repairable).


    Notes
    All of the qualifying resources can be found on all Entropia Universe planets.

    Qualifying loots will be determined using internal server logs, which record values to 6 decimal places. Note that in-game global messages only display integer values for loot PED values, and are sometimes rounded.

    For the Mining Mania reward packages, there is a limit of one reward per participant. In cases where a single participant achieves a loot closest to 150 PED on more than one of the qualifying resources, the 2nd closest loot to 150 PED will receive the reward. Prizes will be determined in alphabetical order of the qualifying resources.

    I'm Surprised Arkadia-Bot did not pick this up....

    Then again maybe its filtering spam for us?
    - 20 ped of Mining is not worth much, ped or skill wise.... it it extraction based skill only, not anything to do with Survey, Prospecting, of Treasure hunting.
    -Mining is the extraction skill for Prospecting
    -Driller is the extraction skill for Survey
    -Archeology is the extraction skill for Treasure Hunter
    ** there are several unlocks for each profession not listed
    -The (L) LvL VIII Athena is 19 efficiency, just under the normal LvL 8 @ 20 efficiency, but it has a skill gain. 208 Ped TT, MU fluctuates

    -1 x Neurobiotic Booster M5 10mg (10 Hours - 50% increased Mining skill gain)...
    -For the amount of skill increases while mining, anyone who has tried to use of these boosters will tell you its a waste of time. You would do better using the booster on a hunting activity. Mining and Crafting do not get the volume of skill increases to make the use a viable choice. With the name given, it is a normal booster, and not just for mining.


    Bonus Rewards
    In addition, the colonist with the highest single mining loot on any of the qualifying resources during the event will receive a Level 7 Finder Amplifier (repairable).
    -This is poorly worded, is this 1 UL LvL 7 amp for the entire event, or 1 amp for each of the 8 resources.

    *Why do these events give no warning?
    *Does MA think a 1 day notice is a good way to promote their communication skills in game?
    *If this is a Platform wide event... where is the promotion? The only place it has been advertised is on Calypso's privately run "Official" site
    -As a Platform Provider they should have spent the 15 minutes to cut and paste the event on their Plant Partners websites.


    **** So, make sure to realize if you choose to participate, That the rewards are more than likely not going to cover your losses if you win. You should only take place if it is in your normal scope of play. It is not a good idea to mortgage the house on this one... lol...

    well, for me "the highest single mining loot on any of the qualifying resources during the event" sounds very clear as 1 UL amp for all resources.

    also i think there should be more events like this, kinda zeroday poorly announced, only one item for the crazy guys, and a lucky random global value winner. what about one each weekend? (AUD *cough*) :)

    I guess the balancing manager forgot how to check market prices.

    This is a really REALLY bad time to have a mining event, in fact, the worst time in my history of playing. Crafters are not crafting anything but explosive projectiles, resources are not selling and MUs have already crashed.

    And a UL level 7 amp?? Now?? What are they thinking?

    No need to encourage mining when the MU is high.
    I like that for the bulk of the prizes the win requirement is not onerous. Do some mining and try hit that 150 ped target. You'll need to make a choice about how much time and peds you put into it.
