25K in prizes
This competition offers a total of 25K peds in prize money. Everyone who posts a global will have a chance to win in the competiton but the more globals you post the better your chances to win a prize.
There are prizes to be won each week of the competition so get hunting now!!
The competition starts March 1st and finishes April 30th so book the dates in your calendar.
Time used will be MA time in game. Remember even posting a single screenie of a global or HOF gives you a chance to win first prize in this fabulous new competition. See below for the rules.
The First Prize winner will be randomly selected from all the globals posted in this thread. ALL global entries will be put into the draw so the more entries you have the better your chances to win the fantastic 10K first prize or one of the two follow-up prizes.
3 prizes will be awarded for the highest number of global or hof entries as follows:
Second Highest number
Third Highest number
8 prizes awarded each week randomly selected from all the globals posted for that week only. This runs Wednesday to Tuesday (inclusive) for the first 8 weeks.
Weekly Random Award
This is a total of 25K peds in prize money to be given away over a 2 month competition. This one is just too good to miss.
This competition takes place in the three areas as seen on the maps below. Find the mob and maturity that suits you best and start hunting!
Mob: Longu Maturity: Young, Mature, Old, Provider
Density: 4x maxed spawns
Mob: Longu Maturity: Provider, Guardian, Dominant
Density: 4x maxed spawns
Mob: Ambulimax Maturity: Young, Mature, Old
Density: 4x maxed spawn
Mob: Atrax Maturity: Guardian, Provider
Density: 3x maxed spawn
In order to participate in this event you need to get a global (both hunting and mining allowed) on any of the areas and post a screenshot of it here in this thread. Each screenshot MUST have TIME and COORDINATES along with the global message displayed in the chat area. This is achieved by pressing C and P before taking the screenshot. The screenshot must be submitted during 24hours after the global to be valid. For a mining global the screenshot MUST be taken in the 3rd person view so that both the landscape and the claim rod are visible, plus ofc the global message, date/time and coordinates.
If anyone should try to cheat they will be excluded from the competition. I consider it cheating if you: - post a global taken before the event started - post a global multiple times - post a global on multiple forums!
Anyone PK'ing other participants can be excluded from the competition, and if there is any severe pk'ing of participants we might also exclude all the members of the society that the pk'er belongs to as well.
To clarify exactly how the drawings will be made for the prizes
We will do the drawing in this order:
10k main prize
5k highest entries
2.5k main prize follow-up1
2k second highest entries
1k main prize follow-up2
500 ped third highest entries
As each prize is decided that avatars name will be removed from the lists and for the random drawings then the modulo will be reapplied on the shortened list. Everyone can partake in the weekly prize draws as long as they have posted globals during that week - more globals posted the higher your chance of winning.
Entries will only be accepted for mobs that naturally live on the Land Areas. This means no allophyl entries will be allowed in the southern LA and no Falxangious will be allowed in the area around Neas. So only Longu and Ambulimax for your global entries please (with possibly Exarosaurs accepted).
Team entries are allowed to be entered but will not be counted for the highest entries part of the competition.
The more globals you have the higher your chances are for the prizes!
The random picking of the winner will be done in the same way as for the Adjusted Fap competition as follows:
Every friday the lottery "euromillions" generate 5 + 2 numbers for picking a winner. (http://www.national-lottery.co.uk/player/p/results/results.do) The 7 numbers generated by euromillions the following friday after the competition ends will be used to choose the winner. The same method will be used for each weekly draw with the "euromillions" result on the Friday following that weeks entries used to determine the winner.
The way this will be done is to put all 7 numbers together as displayed on site, but with the zeros removed from the 'lucky star' numbers, and take this numbers Modulo total entries in the competition.
So, if there are a total of 1470 entries and the euromillions numbers the following friday after the competition ends are 11 15 16 17 20 - 05 07 The winning entry will be:
111516172057 Modulo 1470 = 787
Since this is a big european lottery the numbers generated should by no doubt be random, and used together with the Modulo function the chance of beign drawn for all entries should be pretty much the same.
If anyone disagrees with this please contact me asap!

May the best hunter(or miner) win! And good luck to all.
The ordering of the lists has been changed starting from Week 2 lists. The old ordering is shown in italics below. The lists will now be prepared in Date/Time of global message. This is to ensure all entries will be more evenly spread throughout the numbered lists.
The entries will be counted and numbered, first on entropiaforum and then on entropia-pioneers so if there are 800 entries at entropiaforum and 700 at entropia-pioneers the numbers 0-799 will be on entropiaforum and 800-1499 will be on entropia-pioneers!
