    Jermaine Johansson: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I’m your host, Jermaine Johansson.
    Today’s top story:
    RX units have once again been sighted by CDF scouts; this time, in Eudoria’s contaminated zone.
    CDF Ground Forces Commander Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza released the following statement.”

    Voice of Brigadier General Yevgeny de Souza: “Over the last few days, CDF Scouts have reported regular sightings of RX units mining Pyrite rich areas of the contaminated zone in Eudoria.
    The Governor has issued another warrant. Any colonist who lands the killing strike or shot on an RX unit will be rewarded by the CDF. The following rewards will be handed out, depending on the type of RX unit destroyed:
    • RX Unit Bounty Rewards
    • RX Unit Alpha - Armor Plating Mark.10C TEN Edition + CalyTrek CR Spirit MK.III RX Edition (L) + Isis LC-35 RX Edition (L)
    • RX Unit Beta 242 Armor Plating Mark.10C TEN Edition (L) + CalyTrek CR Spirit MK.III RX Edition (L) + Isis LC-35 RX Edition (L)
    • RX Unit Beta - CalyTrek CR Spirit MK.III RX Edition (L) + Isis LC-35 RX Edition (L)

    Any resources that the RX carry on them may be looted, but be warned - the CDF will not venture into the contaminated zone. The contaminated zone is lawless, in practice. We will not be there to protect you.
    End transmission.”

    Jermaine Johansson: “EBN has received an anonymous tip that there is a newly built fort in the contaminated zone near Camp Echidna. The RX have been seen dropping off and picking up supplies there, and the pattern of their activity suggests they will be there again tomorrow (Wednesday) around 18:00 UTC.
    All brave bounty hunters are advised to be sure to stash their goods before entering this zone as it is inhabited by treacherous bandits.
    Stay tuned for more details.”

    Jermaine Johansson: “You’re watching Entropia Breaking News. I’m your host, Jermaine Johansson.
    Today, the PVP area at Fort Argus became the scene of a massacre, as man fought man-machine, with man emerging as the victor.
    All those who risked their life in the battle are owed a great debt of gratitude from all Calypsians, but the following colonists were rewarded for landing the killing strike or shot on an RX unit:
    • Haylie DuoDuo Xu !(Destroyed the RX Unit Alpha)
    • Princess Nika Paun
    • Viginti Jacobite Tres
    • Tas r0ound Tadas
    • Adam Nebu Jackyll
    • Uniqu3 Uniqu3 Hunter
    • Henxy Rose AngelHenx
    • Princess Nika Paun
    • Mark Slim Shady Hellahard
    • Tomas NoX Paslaptis
    • gurra uglykidjoe aktersnurra
    • Jenna Star Mercury
    • Andrey InvisibleAndre Junior
    • Kayla Mystique Sinclair
    • James Bling Cash
    • Cerb Hulk Beris
    • Avatara Light X-tra
    • Zaphod Zappen Beeblebrox
    • Ruchnik Batiskaf KZ

    The Egg is still missing, and the orange-clad 'female' RX unit, codenamed Omega, who can be seen in the surveillance tape from Treasure Island Castle, is still at large.”

    Yesterday saw an epic battle for Greenthorne land area. Reminiscent of land grab battles of the past, it involved over 100 avatars fighting to take control of Greenthorne, with some of the biggest names in Entropia going for all-out war.

    Indeed this is how this intrepid reporter learnt of this battle. As I logged into the game there flashed a message Jenna Star Mercury killed over 30 before succumbing, then another big name Xplojd killed... and then another. After a few pm's I was hot on the case and making my way to Greenthorne.

    As I arrived in my trusty sleip, I noticed the radar in one section full of the red dots of enemy avatars. With nerves of steel and lightning fast reflexes, I single-handedly managed to kill all of them and take over the land area for Rangers. People were shouting Rangers for the win. It was absolutely amazing; you had to be there to believe it! The adrenaline, the action, the incredible moves and then I shouted, "Are you not entertained?"


    Ok, ok. A slight exaggeration. I didn't really take over or indeed shoot anyone. But eh isn't pvp about slap talk and exaggerations?

    This is what really happened. I sneaked in from a side where there were no red dots, landed on the outer wall, and repaired a few turrets. As I went in for the actual action I was running for cover from incoming fire from all directions. It was not long before I was at the revive! How different reality is from exaggerations...

    Making my way back from the revive it was not long before the battle for the LA was over with one of the Black Angels societies (BA) taking control of the LA.

    Kim, the Senior Developer for Planet Calypso, was there and I could see he was excited and wanted to join in the fun. He hinted that Wastelanders, the storyline avatars controlled by Calypso development staff, may want to fight for an LA in the future.

    What will happen next? Will BA be ousted by a bigger and mightier enemy or indeed a smaller and trickier foe?

    Could this be the beginning of a new era for land grab battles?

    Landgrab have been re-introduced to Planet Calypso, and societies can yet again battle to dominate a Land Area for a period of time. The Forts are at the center of this, providing another element to Landgrab, and giving the vehicles a important role in the capturing or besieging of the Forts.

    In addition to eight Land Areas that will be used for Landgrab, there will also be two Fort areas that is connected to the Event System, where you can enter player-made events or simply create them yourself and blast up some friends. Oh, and did I mention that while participating in Fort events, ammo burn will only be 10% of regular usage and deterioration will also be just 10% of normal value, allowing you to have PvP fun with your friends at a minimal cost!

    We at SEE Digital Studios would love to try this out with you, so we're hosting three events this evening at 14:00, 15:30 and 17:00. To participate in our events today, visit the Event Manager in Tukar for your ticket.
    After the events are over, the real deal begins...


    Four Land Areas are being released for Landgrab today at 18:30.

    Societies will have to tear down the Fort to get to the claim, and hold it for one hour to claim to Fort and Land Area. So who will be the first societies to dominate the Calypso Forts?

    The remaining four Land Areas will be released for Landgrab this coming weekend. Stay tuned for exact times. And have fun!

    (All Times UTC)
