    I am in cat 10, I have no other choice.

    *Unless you consider over 25k in esi just to chip down an option. (did that once already, there are not enough on auction anyhow)

    I, and many others cannot win in this Cat and you know it based on the design. Which also consists of your higher end cycler's. Why on earth would you want to shut out so many people out with this structure?

    I wont be competing this year, I wont even bother with defense, but I will farm boxes and hope the Swedish effect hasn't taken a toll on that markup. I would have rather mined, but even that dangled fruit got snatched. So I am a box farming, gear renting part time crafter now I guess. (btw thanks for looking out for our investments with even more BPS...ever consider upgrading existing ones?)

    I've put something in for mayhem just about every time for 6 years now. You have given me too many reasons not to this time.

    While I appreciate you saving me money, I really fail to understand how this helps your company.

    I mostly am stating this so you can see this end of it, and how low the motivation is for this structure at this cat, especially considering the sheer amount of exploits that were caught last year....and not seemingly punished.

    I've enjoyed mayhem's a lot, but without a real chance to win and fair spread of skill/gear, its futile for most to even try, which is a shame, they had been great competition in the past, and ave people real motivations for buying setups.

    I hope solutions come, but until then, I wait for a mayhem that has a real competitive feel to it again.
    I feel exactly the same way. I can't do the Mayhem as I have to many skills to do a Category that I would enjoy. So another Event that won't be getting any PED from me. The event structure as it is really isn't competitive at all. The structure means some Cats have next to no participation and people just chip out for free gear in the lower participation Cats. It's bad all around. It isn't the slightest bit competitive. It's just bad design.

    It's really a shame they eliminate so many players with this structure and punish people that love skilling and enjoy playing the game the most. It would be sooooo easy to just allow any Cat to be competed in and just scale down the Avatars HP and then have the Dps cap. No one has to chip out and then it is actually competitive and there is participation in every Cat. Also people then can actually do the event.

    The mining failure for this event is just that. A failure on MA's part to introduce something to get the players excited to play. MA needs to hire some people that actually understand what gamers want apparently because you continually are missing the boat on how to increase participation and competition in the game.

    I think you also forgot to remove the loot from the test server? The robots in cat 10 (and probably all) drop level 6-8 weapons. These are worse than shrapnel, imo
    I'm unsure whether or not this is intentional, however, I have forwarded this feedback to balance, thanks.

    On a serious note (for next time), imho the hp of the higher category evis is silly for intended max dps shooting (also when compared to other seasonal events)

    People have already started to add info. These are Annihilation Eviscerator not mayhem Eviscerator, maybe you're looking in the wrong place:

    http://www.entropiawiki.com/Info.aspx?chart=Mob&id=797

    You can enter from any planet, go to global instances in the event section.
    Merci beaucoup !

    Well what you intended isn't a good idea. How about you put the best UL hunting gear in claims and the miners can go mine and sell that to hunters. Sounds bad doesn't it!!! That isn't rewarding for anyone.

    Also the miners want a mining event to compete in. The hunters want to hunt. How about we start creating awesome events to increase participation instead of "Gate" everything and not have people play!!

    Not trying to sound negative but we need the Event department to be better than they are. These events aren't creative or going to bring in the participation you could have if events were implemented better, with much cleaner ideas to involve everyone.
    Ive been around since 2002/2003. Im still waiting for a worthy miningevent in 2019.....
    MA just doesnt have it in them to cater us with this.

    Well well...back to the lonely life on fields

    so how do i do this "mining" event as a swedish player? i cant buy keys?????
    Yeah this is really awful, lets have an event where Swedish players cannot participate fully. I guess only alternatives for us is to sell the fragment or boxes?

    *shakes head*... what a wonderfully promising progression to now have to get 1000 frags to get a mining mission to do which will get us a box (is that guaranteed whenever the hit is over 6 peds?) that still then requires a deposit to get a bunch of keys that might then give us a nice loot inside apart from survey probe crap. Have I understood the process?

    I guess my only curiosity is just how badly 'balanced' this is. Can somebody maybe give a spoiler of how the fragment rewards progress through the phases and levels to start people off? Or simply the number of frags from surviving 10 mins, 20 mins, whatever? It's just that I'd like to see the sort of 'not worth it' mu without even taking part.

    The picture in my mind is of a pyramid of slot machines. You must first run through the lowest level before being allowed to move to the next row. Heck, not even a casino has that sort of thing as far as I know....
    (ok, I guess the boxes can be sold on at whatever mu to those who want to access the top of the pyramid right away).

    I'm almost wishing I was Swedish

    From what I see it looks like you have to pay 30-100 ped to hunters/traders for the fragments unless you hunt(remember this is a mining event). Ok now you have to turn that in for a mining mission to then get a claim of 6 ped for a robot strongbox. Then you have to deposit $1 to buy a key and then any other hoops and obstacles and long drawn out processes to.... loot survey probes. Did I get that right? Who thought this was the best method for a mining event? Strangest thing and event I've heard of since I've been playing.

    Output amplifier component missing from loot table.
    I want to believe this move is unintended.
    Please check.

    Question List of Vendor Items

    Is there any place I can go to have a look at what sort of items these events can actually earn me without having to walk up to a vendor in-game?
