    Steadily decreasing robot excavation of DSUs (Data Storage Units) has been reported at the Hadesheim crater this year. Recently, this excavation came to a complete stop. It appears all DSUs have finally been extracted and depleted — there are simply no functioning DSUs left. Without information from the DSUs to guide us, the precious technology in the hidden RX caches is unreachable. For now.

    Instead, the CDF has a new plan of attack: tap into the heart of robot communications at Hadesheim - the Base Matrix.

    The Grid Theory formulated by Archibald Levetnik (A.K.A. 'Grid-Man') identified the significance of Base Matrix ‘node areas’. One of these node areas was secured by colonists via the successful repulsion of Steelbirds and Attackers. Once the general area was cleared the CDF established the node’s precise location.

    We now plan to deploy a specially designed communications array directly above the node’s location: a Data Interceptor. The Data Interceptor will tap into the Base Matrix network and gather intelligence data. The operation will begin immediately after the Data Interceptor has the been given the green light for deployment.

    Of course, the robots will return to eliminate it.

    Knowledge is power. We must know our enemy.

    That is why — when the time comes — we must defend the Data Interceptor.

    Mayhem Divisions
    This Mayhem event offers two competition divisions: Solo Defense and Solo Annihilation.

    Event Entrance
    Instances for these divisions can be accessed via the Global Events List from any planet inside Entropia Universe. Browse the event list for the entrance applicable to your profession level.

    There is also a Mayhem Defense Training category where anyone, even newcomers, can try out this years Easter Mayhem Solo Defense division. Note that the Training grounds area does not give out rewards or prizes.

    Solo Defense
    • Defend an objective from increasingly powerful robot attackers. A round consists of 10 waves, with a short pause between rounds with access to temporary Trade and Repair Terminals.
    • Defense times are automatically recorded and displayed on the event leaderboard.
    • One Easter Strongbox is awarded for every completed round (10 waves).
    • Mayhem Tokens are awarded for every 5 completed waves, multiplied by the current round number. For example, completing 5 waves in round 4 will be rewarded with 4 Mayhem Tokens.
    • The top ten highest scorers (longest defense time) in each category win prizes.


    Solo Annihilation
    • A random number of points (1, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, or 5000) is automatically awarded after destroying any of the event instance robots. There are no longer looted tokens.
    • A 20-hour event timer automates tracking of time spent in the Annihilation instances. Each participant’s final event score is automatically recorded once the 20-hour requirement is reached.
    • Participants activate a timer inside the Annihilation event instance to begin spawning robots; the timer pauses automatically when a participant exits the instance.
    • The top ten highest scorers (most accumulated points) in each category win prizes.

    Prizes
    Prizes in Easter Mayhem are awarded in the form of Mayhem Tokens, which can also be looted from event creatures in this and other Mayhem-style events. Mayhem Tokens can be exchanged for exclusive items via the Mayhem Token Trader, located in Cape Corinth, Port Atlantis and Twin Peaks.

    Mayhem Tokens can be accumulated over the course of several events to purchase more expensive items, allowing participants to make incremental progress toward their desired rewards.

    Mayhem Tokens are non-tradeable, but the items available for purchase in the Mayhem Token Vendor are tradable. Note that certain Mayhem Token Vendor items may also require special Placement Mayhem Tokens, awarded as event prizes, in order to be purchased.

    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.

    After several months of relative peace on Calypso, preliminary signs of imminent robot incursion forces have been detected by CDF officials.

    Details are still sketchy, but anonymous sources within the CDF warn of probable hostilities commencing as early as tomorrow.

    Colonists are encouraged to prepare to defend themselves accordingly.


    Update #1

    Robots have been observed performing unusually organized movements near Cape Corinth! Defense Force officials believe they may be constructing something, but urges the population to remain calm...

    This page will be updated as soon as new information comes in.
