Well it finally happened...

I've either died and gone to heaven or my dream of hitting an ATH finally came true.



Check out the video here:

I can't believe it... After 10 years in game and going through the grind and hitting the wall as many of us have done I've finally managed to see the lights we all dream of.

Mining was always my activity of choice but in 10 years of big amp mining, I had never hit a 5 figure HOF. I decided that for my birthday this year and 10 year anniversary in game I was going to go balls to the walls with a 10k run on full condition explosive projectiles IV since I'd since those babies hitting like it was going out of style.

Either I was going to hit something big or I was gonna walk away broke. I had recently chipped out all my crafting skills so I had to spend a few thousand peds to buy the full QR BP and chipping in enough skills to max out my success rate. On my 10th run of about 2k - 2.5k peds worth of clicks I hit something amazing! All in all I'd have to say I'm in profit at this point :D

What's funny is I STILL haven't hit a 5 digit HOF yet.... seemed to skip that and went right to 6 figures - but hey, I'm not complaining.

***UPDATE*** later this same night I did another run and got a 10k ped HOF so I've managed to get my 5 AND 6 figure HoF's lol

GIVEAWAYS!!

I always said to myself that if I ever hit s 6 figure ATH I would share the wealth with others and I plan to. I'm going to be giving away nearly 10% of this giant loot over the next while to a bunch of different people. (please don't PM me asking for money)

***UPDATE*** after thinking about it and consulting with other I think I've come up with the best plan for how to share these peds. I've decided against doing a hunting event as I find it too limiting and they seem to just reward those that are already lucky enough to hit a big loot or those that have really good gear... pretty much excluding anyone that does mining or crafting or plays on a much smaller scale.

I'd really like this to impact the most amount of people possible. So I'm taking the advice that was given to focus more towards random unadvertised giveaways. I'm still going to do the forum giveaway as planned but here's the final breakdown of giveaways.

- **COMPLETE** 1 X 1,000 PED giveaway to a random person that gratz and comments on this thread = 1,000 PEDS

- **COMPLETE** 9 X 250 PED giveaway to random people that gratz and comments on this thread = 2,250 PEDS

- **COMPLETE** Random "ME WANTEE!!" Events In The Rookie Chat - Randomly I'll advertise a number of ped stacks available and will offer them to the first people to shout "ME WANTEE!!". Generally this will be a calypso thing but I might take a trip out to arkadia for a couple as well. I've already done this a few times congrats to the winners.

- **COMPLETE** Cash Grab Scavenger Hunt - Basically I run around dropping a bunch of random ped value stacks 1 - 25 peds and let people find them. I've done this a few times in twin peaks already but I'm thinking I might do this is obscure locations on calypso and then let people know in various chat channels and in highly populated areas the location where the peds are.

- **COMPLETE** Random In Person 25 - 50 Ped Giveaways - I've been going around trading random people giving them stacks of peds.

- **WINNER: STRASH** Catch A Greased Pig Event - Me, Jambon (french for ham) will be running around PvP4 areas with 500 - 1000 peds of Garcen Grease in my inventory for one lucky player than can catch (and kill) a greased pig. I'll be popping into those areas randomly and will announce it on Rookie chat which PVP area I am at when it happens. So make sure you're tuned into that channel at all times so you don't miss you're chance!



CONGRATS TO EVERYONE THAT RECEIVED A TASTE OF THIS GIANT ATH!!

***Prize giveaways are going to be limited to one per person. The forum giveaway deadline is friday at 20:00 (I decided to end it a little early since there was no posts for 24 hours). The winners will be posted in the thread and will be contacted via PM.

GL to everyone!!


**** FORUM WINNERS ****

Thanks to everyone for all your gratz and comments. I have randomly selected the winners of the prizes using random.org to generate numbers representing the posts on the thread and it came up with these winners.

skubahta = 250 PEDS
TheRock = 250 PEDS
atomicstorm (MeLoveYou LongTime FiveDolla) = 250 PEDS
UberNuuber (Salsa UberNuuber Latino) = 250 PEDS

Im commenting for 2 reasons...

1) First to say WOW!!! Nice one indeed...
2) To say enjoy the windfall ...with caution to how fast you spend it...took so long for you to get it...let it take at least half that long to spend it..:)

Congratulations! :eyecrazy:
I saw it go by in-game and to be honest, I typed "FU ExP" in soc chat... long-story-short, I find explosive projectiles take the multi out of Massive Multi-Player Online Game because they don't even require any indirect interaction with other players.
That being said, YOU are putting the multi back with the fantastic idea of giving away a portion of your winnings. :lolup: :beerchug: I have a sneaking suspicion it might be because you're one of those nice Canadians!! (No need to say sorry) :tongue2:
Enjoy the winnings and enjoy playing Santa Claus in April.

Holy shit man, that's one explosive ATH! :eyecrazy:

A simple gratz doesn't quite cover it. How about a :birthday: instead? :wtg:

/offtopic/ The sad thing thing about this, is that EXP IV's crafters activity will rise, and people who were on the fence about doing it may just hop over it now. Plus it will attract future EXP IV's gamblers. I'm a bit afraid of how this will impact the game in general.

Gz man, very nice. :yay::yay::yay:

PS- I don't want any prize or anything for giving you congrats as that would make it kinda false. I'm always happy to gz people on good hits, but woudn't dream of doing it to gain something in return. Enjoy your new found wealth man :).
