    Arkadian Alliance - Go Swirl Yourself Monthly Competition (2017)

    Note: This will be the last month this event format runs. It will be changed to a much better and exciting format. Stay tuned for the new rule system in the middle of September!

    September 2017 Event Rules

    You get kick backs for every 50 globals, and every HOF on SV/KC yields 50 cents to the Nashville Humane Assocation.

    New Event Details

    From January 1st 2017, the new event cycle will be run monthly, in conjunction with Starkiller’s LA
    The format will be similar to that used in Merry Mayhem
    Some rules and prizes have been tweaked based on player feedback

    Frequency: This competition will be held calendar monthly

    Location: Planet Arkadia

    Meloveyou Longtime Fivedolla's Lands

    Songkra Valley [32488, 26149, 159] - Previously Known as Arkadia Land Area 6
    Khorum Coast [9115, 27387, 105] - Previously Known as Arkadia Land Area 3
    Aakas Island [19036, 9046, 121] - Currently Known as Arkadia Land Area 1 [NEW]

    Starkiller's Lands

    Sentosa's Reach [14845, 32276, 144] – Previously Known as Arkadia Land Area 4

    Prizes

    Prizes for this event are as follows and prizes may be increased depending on activity and sponsorships.

    1st Place – 1000 PED
    2nd Place – 3000 PED
    3rd Place – 500 PED
    4th Place - 200 PED [NEW]
    5th Place through 10th Place – 100 PED

    Grinder Kickback Prizes (NEW)

    Whether you make it into the prize rankings, you will receive the following based on your activity in the month:

    Every 50 globals = 1 Arkadia Underground Deed (or PED Equivalent)

    Note: Prizes are intended to be more valuable for 2nd place to encourage using strategy instead of raw power.

    If you are lonely, don't have a society to join or (like me) has a society where no one speaks, join the Entropia Discord channel @ https://discord.gg/ZmFcut9 -- constantly busy, no drama.. just fun.

    How to Participate

    Just hunt on any of the participating land areas (see above) on Arkadia from August 1st through August 31st. No registration is necessary.

    How to Score

    Your base score will consist of your top 10 globals and HOFs between 50 and 399 averaged. (Add them up and divide by 10)
    This allows you to improve your score the longer you hunt.

    How to Qualify

    Only a total of 10 globals NEW! are required to qualify.

    You can view your top 10 globals and bonus points awarded at any time on the leaderboard @ www.tiny.cc/svboard

    At present the leaderboard will update daily between 00:00-03:00 server time. We hope to increase the update frequency in the future.

    How to Win Bonus Points

    Additional points can be added to your base score on a daily basis as follows:

    From your hunting:

    Every global or HOF between 400 and 999: +5 points
    Every HOF 1000 to 1999peds: +7.5 points
    Every HOF 2000ped or greater: +10 points

    From being the best every day:

    HSL (Highest Single Loot) of the day from the combined LAs: +0.25% bonus on the base score

    From being the best of the month:

    At the end of the month, the highest single loot (HSL) on each Land Area will be awarded a +5.0% base score bonus.

    Multipliers

    For fairness (parity), some mobs may have multiplier adjustments to their global values to make both land areas equal, based on cost to kill. They are as follows:

    Trophy Mobs

    * Mutated Nusul - 400% (Changed)

    Khorum Coast

    * Mutated Hadraada - 135%
    * Mutated Zadul - 110% (Changed)

    Songkra Valley

    * Mutated Beladoth – No Multiplier
    * Mutated Otorugi – No Multiplier

    Sentosa's Reach

    * Mutated Madana – 110% (Changed)

    Aakas Island

    * Magurgs – No Multipliers
    * Ubos – 115%

    Each mob is weighted based on their average cost to kill so that no land area has an advantage over another and thus is open to all types of players, from the less seasoned (Khorum Coast/Sentosa's Reach) to the mid-level and up (Songkra Valley).

    50 cents for every HOF on any land area will be donated 100% to the Nashville Humane Association. This is a charity that is dear to my heart. You may freely purchase these items together, even if you have no intention of activating this feature. Receipts of the donation will be provided.

    Additional Rules and Considerations

    • Teams are not permitted. However, you can use a fapper outside of team.
    • Owners of the participating land area may hunt on either land area but cannot win any prizes.
    • Sponsors can participate but cannot win their prize back. In the event that this occurs, the prize will be given to 11th place, 12th place, and so on.


    Change List for August

    • Rare item bonuses have been removed due to difficulty of tracking
    • Some multipliers have changed

    Event Sponsorships

    Sponsoring any part of the event, in any form greater than 100 PED, will receive ad space in this thread as a donor, a note next to the place of the prize on the leaderboard, and a spot on the Songkra Valley estate (you must provide a sign) to advertise your shop or services.

    Intent to sponsor must be communicated 24 hours before the event.

    Donation must be in hand by the start of the event to qualify.

    Ad space is first come, first serve until visible area is out of item points.

    Scores will be updated automatically between midnight and 1am server time. Scores will be displayed down to 4 decimal places in case of a tie.

    Buying of Loot of Participating Hunters

    In the effort to boost Arkadia's economy, we will buy the following loot from any hunter who has registered 30 or more globals in total in the following rates below. In the event that there are other shop owners who would like to buy these materials at a better rate, feel free to make this offer in #arktrade.

    We realize these are not the best prices, but because of gold rush oversupply, this is what we can offer at a minimum, and will prevent you from needing to TT. We encourage you, that if you are able, to sell to auction for the best possible value for your efforts:

    Buying only from participating land areas:

    All oils and wools, except pancreas oil @ 100.50%

    Pancreas Oil @ 100.10%

    All wools @ 100.50%

    Beladoth Nails @ 110%

    Animal Oil Residue @ 100.7%

    Always buying:

    Shrapnel @ 100.6%

    Output Amplifier Components @ 120%

    Any nanites, which drop – Fair Market Value

    A notice to material buyers: If you wish for us to facilitate buying of materials for your purpose in addition to the above list, let us know and we will facilitate buying the materials at your proposed purchased value + 0.25%. You must be in good standing and be a resident or a "regular" of Arkadia to take us up on this service.

    A warning to all, we will buy these materials for those actively hunting on the participating land areas in proportion to what you would receive during your hunting. At this time, we would not be buying animal oils, wools, and beladoth nails that may come from other areas such as Gold Rush. We would be buying everything else regardless. These restrictions may change over time.

    Fantastic idea for an event. I like the idea of boosting ark's economy with your loot buy back as well, great stuff.

    Good luck!

    Adjusted the initial post with some formatting improvements, thanks to Granny Rowan (from Kronan) for helping in that.
