    The annual Eomon migration period is here! Take part in a spectacular piece of Calypsian history and watch the majestic Eomon migrate over the plains of the Eudorian continent.

    The Eomon migration has been a popular seasonal hunting event for many years on Calypso. Predators follow in the wake of the mighty Eomon herd, such as Atrox and Mulmun mutants.

    For 2017 there are extra spawns of Longtooth Adolescents for newer hunters with less experience and more basic equipment. There is also a thrilling special extra mission and a Video Competition!
    For full details please see the Eomon 2017 Intel page: http://www.planetcalypso.com/events/...2017/index.xml

    Big Bulk and Defender robots are greedily snatching our land around the following locations:
    • Boreas
    • Camp Phoenix
    • Fort Ithaca
    • Fort Pandora
    • Fort Sisyphus (lower level robots sighted)
    • Fort Troy
    • Jason Centre
    • Jurra Plateau
    • Minopolis


    Why? Strategists are saying they’re occupying land for future RX cache mining, that’s what!

    If the DSUs suddenly reveal the location of an RX cache, an excavation would be easier for the robots if they already occupied the land at that location. That way, there’s no need for colonist expulsion!

    It’s like they’re sitting on an ‘egg’, in the hope that it might possibly ‘hatch’ an RX cache!

    Let's not make it easy for them. Let’s push these vultures off our land!

    Defender and Big Bulk robots are attacking across Eudoria! The traditional robot territories around Minopolis, Fort Troy, Jurra Plateau and Ashi have all been reinforced with the ‘heavyweight’ robots, with some lower-strength Defenders joining the attack against Fort Sisyphus.

    It seems the reinforcements have been sent in an attempt to widen robot territory.!
    Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza stated that “Colonists must help contain these attacks — at all costs”.


    Insider Information: Trading Tip

    There are rumours that a ‘Shady Scientist’ is seeking certain scavenged robot parts. The scientist was last seen at Fort Troy and it’s speculated that he is a disgraced researcher from the RDI.

    It’s time once again for Planet Calypso’s annual winter hunting extravaganza - Merry Mayhem!

    Running over the Christmas and New Year holiday period, Merry Mayhem is one of the most exciting and popular events in all of Entropia Universe, with lots of valuable prizes. Entrants may participate in either or both the “Solo Mayhem” category (solo hunting) and the “Free-For-All Mayhem” category (team hunting) and score points by looting Mayhem Star tokens. There’s also an extra hunting mission alongside the main event for newcomers!

    There have been a few adjustments this year to improve your Merry Mayhem experience.

    So grab your best gear and join in the Mayhem!

    Event Dates
    • Dec 16, 14:00:00 UTC - The Santa's Little Helper NPCs in Nymphtown, Fort Zeus and Fort Ithaca become active and the event begins.
    • Jan 17, 14:00:00 UTC - Event ends.
    • Jan 24, 14:00:00 UTC - Cutoff for submission of FFA Mayhem Stars for the Free For All Mayhem category.
    • Feb 7 - Event results announced.


    Categories
    The Merry Mayhem event offers two competition categories: Solo Mayhem and Free For All (FFA) Mayhem, with five instance areas for each category.

    Solo Mayhem, as the name implies, is the place for individual hunters to shine. Only a single avatar may enter the solo event instances.

    The Free For All category allows groups of participants to work together to accumulate points. Participants must be in an active team in order to enter the FFA Mayhem instances. FFA Mayhem Stars are tradable, allowing participants to farm point tokens that can be sold to the highest bidder, or turned in to increase their own event scores.

    Event Registration & Participation
    Santa's Little Helper event NPCs are located in Nymphtown, Fort Zeus and Fort Ithaca. Speak with one of these NPCs to enter an instance of your choice. Entering an instance will activate the mission corresponding to the category, Solo instances for Solo Mayhem and FFA instances for FFA Mayhem. The Merry Mayhem Solo and FFA missions can be active simultaneously.
    Event points are earned by looting special Mayhem Stars for the Solo Mayhem event, and FFA Mayhem Stars for the FFA Mayhem event (see below).

    Solo Mayhem Creatures
    • Solo 1 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (Solo 1) [Danger 6], Mayhem Araneatrox (Solo 1) [Danger 11], Yulebot (Solo 1) [Danger 17]
    • Solo 2 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (Solo 2) [Danger 9], Mayhem Araneatrox (Solo 2) [Danger 17], Yulebot (Solo 2) [Danger 26]
    • Solo 3 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (Solo 3) [Danger 16], Mayhem Araneatrox (Solo 3) [Danger 28], Yulebot (Solo 3) [Danger 42]
    • Solo 4 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (Solo 4) [Danger 30], Mayhem Araneatrox (Solo 4) [Danger 54], Yulebot (Solo 4) [Danger 80]
    • Solo 5 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (Solo 5) [Danger 50], Mayhem Araneatrox (Solo 5) [Danger 78], Yulebot (Solo 5) [Danger 140]


    FFA Mayhem Creatures

    • FFA 3 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (FFA 3) [Danger 56], Mayhem Araneatrox (FFA 3) [Danger 75], Yulebot (FFA 3) [Danger 136]

    Scoring
    Solo Merry Mayhem
    Event points are scored by looting special Mayhem Star event tokens. In Solo Merry Mayhem, looting one of the Mayhem Star tokens automatically increments your event score. The Mayhem Star tokens can be saved as souvenirs, or discarded at the Trade Terminal. Solo Mayhem Star tokens are non-tradable.

    Final event scores will be calculated based on hourly point averages to derive each participant's 40-hour normalized event score.

    This scoring method removes the need for participants to track time spent in the instances (beyond meeting the 40-hour prize eligibility requirement, described below), removes the risk of participants being inadvertently disqualified from the event for time reasons, and allows all participants to hunt as much as desired in the Solo Merry Mayhem instances without giving an unfair advantage to those who are able to hunt for many hours.

    Example
    • Avatar A - Point total: 4000, Hours : 40, Hourly point average: 100, 40-hour normalized score: 4000
    • Avatar B - Point total: 6900, Hours: 72, Hourly point average: 95.83, 40-hour normalized score: 3833.33

    In this example, Avatar A would place higher in the final results, even though Avatar B has more total points.

    Highest Single Loot Bonus - The participant who scores the highest single loot on each of the various Solo Mayhem creatures outlined above will receive a 25% boost to their final 40-hour normalized score! (Limit of one bonus per participant).

    ***IMPORTANT*** A participant must complete at least 40 hours in the Solo Mayhem instances in order to qualify for winning a prize in the Solo Mayhem category.

    FFA Merry Mayhem
    Event points are scored by turning in FFA Mayhem Star tokens to one of the Santa’s Little Helper NPCs located in Nymphtown, Fort Zeus and Fort Ithaca. Acquire FFA Mayhem tokens by defeating creatures in one of the FFA Mayhem instances, or by acquiring tokens from other participants.

    There are no time requirements or restrictions in the FFA Mayhem category.

    Rules & Notes
    The Solo Mayhem category is intended for solo hunters. Any attempt at abusing team mechanics or any other Entropia Universe systems or features in order to gain an unfair advantage over other participants will be grounds for disqualification from the event, forfeiture of any prizes, and possible sanctions imposed on one’s Entropia Universe account.

    Do not abandon the Merry Mayhem missions! If you abandon one of the event missions for any reason, intentionally or accidentally, all points earned up to that point will be lost forever and will not be included in your final event score. Support cannot and will not restore points for abandoned missions, regardless of the situation. Any time spent in the Solo Mayhem instances during the event period will be included in the normalized score calculation, regardless of whether the mission had been abandoned and points reset.

    ***IMPORTANT*** A participant must complete at least 40 hours in the Solo Merry Mayhem event instances in order to qualify for winning a prize.

    For the Highest Single Loot (HSL) score bonus (Solo Mayhem only), if the participant who achieves the HSL on one of the Merry Mayhem creatures does not meet the 40-hour prize eligibility requirement, the next highest loot for the creature in question will be considered. And so on, until a prize-eligible participant is awarded the HSL score bonus. The same applies for cases where a participant has scored the HSL on more than one of the Solo Merry Mayhem creatures.

    Happy Holidays and Merry Mayhem!
    The Planet Calypso Team

    F.A.Q.
    Q: If I experience a client crash, disconnection or other issue while in one of the Merry Mayhem instances, how will this affect my time calculation and/or final score?
    A: All calculations are based on actual time connected to one of the event instances. In the case of a client crash or disconnection, time in the event instance will stop being counted within approximately 10 seconds of disconnection.

    Q: Is it possible to win a prize in more than one category?
    A: Yes. Everyone can participate in both the Solo and Free-For-All (FFA) Mayhem event categories.

    Special Newcomer Mission: Jul Snarg Hunt
    Merry Snargs are on the rampage, and it’s up to you to keep them under control!

    “Help me I’m at Argus beach!...they’re everywhere!...No get away you flesh-eating bas...get away!”

    The above audio and this very strange, distorted picture were received just moments ago from CalyNET reporter Jeffrey Talston. The picture was presumably taken using a highly damaged imaging device. It seems Jeffrey is a truly dedicated newsman, even when facing imminent temp-death!

    Unsurprisingly, Fort Argus beach has been declared a highly dangerous area by the CDF.
