Time: Sat. April 19th. @ 17:00 MA time
Place: Hades C TP

The Crafting Event
  • Entrance fee will be announced at event time, but will not exceed 200ped.
  • Entrance fee will cover materials cost.
  • All contestants will meet at Hades C TP. We'll all run to the crafting location.
  • All contestants will pay the entrance fee and be given BP, book and enough materials for a specific amount of clicks.
  • All contestants must use the crafting machines in that area.
  • Ready. Set. Craft!!!
  • All materials, and BPs must be shown to the judges in trade window.
  • Crafters get to keep the crafted item/res. BPs will be handed back.

There will be 2 ways to win.

How to win:
1st Place - Most crafted material (excluding res)
2nd Place - Highest global total (If no globals, the 2nd highest crafted material wins 2nd place.)

Multiple globals will be added together, so 53 and 86 ped globals will beat a 100 ped global

The prizes:
Winner #1 - 200 peds & a free IRL t-shirt
Winner #2 - 150 peds

A surprise gift will be given to a random loser, sponsored by ALH of the Entropia Resource Xchange.

All entrants, please announce your intention to enter on this thread please, so we can gauge how much material to buy. Thank you.

List of contestants so far:
ALH
Dataspice
Kira-Red
Lykke
Magnus Mag Ogg
Manix6

P.S. Looking for sponsors to donate any extra prizes. Please note there will be 2 winners.

Around what level will the BP be?

or

Is there any chance a crafting noob (like me) could join? :D
I've just barely unlocked BPC.

As with the previous crafting contests, the specific bp is a closely guarded secret. Could be lvl III springs. Could be settler shins. Ya never know.

However, based on previous winners, I'd say a minimum of BPC, and you got a nice shot.

Keep in mind you keep everything you crafted, so possible loss is minimized.

This sounds like fun :yay:

I don't think I have much chance with my 20-something BPC skill points, but what the heck, who knows, I might get lucky :)

I'm in!

Just one more thing I'd like clarification on, not participated in any previous crafting events.
Crafters get to keep the crafted item/res. BPs will be handed back.

So does this mean you also keep any bp:s we loot, or does it simply mean we have to give back the bp we received from you?

Any looted bps, crafted materials, residue, etc., are yours to keep. :) The only thing returned at the end is the BP and book you were given. (You'll show us our crafted materials in a trade window, but we do not take it.)

We use the BP QR rating as another "control" to reduce cheating. (I.E. if all the BPs are coming in w/ 12 QR and the winner hands in a 3 QR, we have reason to suspect something is wrong.)

EDIT: as for the skills, you got almost 3 weeks to skill up, mate. :)

Great news: :yay:

A surprise gift will be given to a random participant, sponsored by ALH of the Entropia Resource Xchange.

1st & 2nd place and ALH (in any case) will not be eligible to win his own prize, increasing the odds you can win 1 of 3 prizes.

Kpward: PM sent. :) Thanks for your offer for a free t-shirt for the winner.

2 weeks to go folks. Keep skilling up.

Comon people, there must be more people out there :)

Anyone could score a nice global and win the second price.

No need to be an uber crafter... I hope :cool: (106 bpc skill points now.. :silly2:)

And if you fail, there is always the ERX consolation prize :yay:

Which, as I just want to reiterate, can't be won by me, increasing your odds of having it :)

While you're asking about the lvl, and not the specific bp, my previous answer still applies. :)

As with the previous crafting contests, the specific bp is a closely guarded secret. Could be lvl III springs. Could be settler shins. Ya never know.

I know some folks would prefer to know what bp the contest will be using, however, knowing that detail simply makes cheating way too easy.

Plus for many, the surprise aspect is rather appealing. :D
