index.php

WATCH THIS 3 MIN VIDEO!

Event Start Date:
April 15th, 2021

A Grinder Event!
Each Global is Rewarded!
Grind up in Levels and Avatar Progression!

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS!


4 Participating Land Areas

index.php

Detailed Land Area Info

  • Earn Gold 🪙, Silver ⚪, and PED💰
  • Solo or Team Grind!
  • Each global earns rewards!
  • Compete against others for Weekly/Monthly bonuses!
  • Daily Grinder incentives!
  • Jackpot on each Land Area!
  • Avatar/Team Level & Rank Progression System!


Team Registration:
  • Use the word "Team" in the team name
  • Register your team name by replying here, by including the team captain's name and the name of the team

Rules:
  1. Solo hunter registration is not required, just start hunting, give the website about 5 minutes to update
  2. No end date
  3. Anyone caught abusing the system will be banned from all EntropiaGold events
  4. If you discover an exploit, immediately stop, if you see others exploiting report it to MsPudding immediately
  5. This is a solo and team hunting event >> Grind alone or with friends
  6. You can join/create multiple teams, there's no limit
  7. Claiming a prize is easy, shoot me a PM on here, in game, or Discord MsP#9453 (preferred)
  8. Teams and team captain's must register. Only the captain is allowed to claim prizes for the team
  9. Any unregistered teams that win a jackpot before they register will have their global removed as if it never happened. Any Gold the unregistered team won will be removed from the unregistered team's balance and returned to the jackpot(s). Please register your team before hunting in the event!
  10. Silver exchange value is "frozen" in time, if there is an in game market crash, or an unusual price increase, the exchange rates will always be adjusted so that your Silver holds the same value as when this event began. If the deed price varies more than 10% either way, PED covers the difference. Deeds are valued at the following:
    1. CLD valued at 2750 PED each
    2. AUD valued at 100 PED each
    3. "Frozen" Deed Value Example: Let's say the CLD price crashes back to 2200 PED, when you exchange your 250k Silver for a CLD you would get 1 CLD plus I would give you an additional +275 PED reward from me. This works both ways, so if the price of a CLD goes up to 3.1k PED you will need to pay +75 PED on top of the 250k Silver. If the price varies less than 275 PED on CLDs or less than 10 PED on AUDs, either direction, we'll call it even. This system ensures that your Silver holds its value, It's my promise to be fair with you when it comes to deed exchanges
  11. If you need to dispute a global for any reason, send me a full SS on Discord or PCF, showing the in game global/HOF
  12. Gold or Silver may not be transferred from one team or avatar to another team or avatar, it is all account/team bound
  13. Gold and Silver may never be purchased, it is only available by globaling on participating LAs
  14. Gold is exchanged at the highest rate possible per transaction. For example: if you had 1390 Gold, all 1390 Gold would be exchanged at the '1000 Gold rate', which is 0.7; you would need to exchange 2500 Gold or more to bump up to the next higher rate and so on and so forth. Your exchange rate is per transaction, so if you exchange all your Gold back to 0 again your exchange rate resets.
  15. Silver may only be exchanged for exact deed amounts. For example: if you had 260k Silver, the 250k Silver would be exchanged for a CLD and you would be left with 10k Silver.

Tax:
4.00% on all Land Areas

Sponsored Streams:

Registered Teams & Their Captains
*DISCLAIMER* Only registered team captains may make a request for a prize claim. If you have a team grinding, make sure to get the captain registered on here. If you would like to add a backup captain, the current team captain needs to state the backup captain's full avatar name in a reply somewhere on this thread and designate them the backup captain.

180 Day Rule (MIA or Possibly Deceased): If your team captain has 0 globals, accross all 3 professions, in 180 consecutive days, the backup captain, who's name is listed in this thread by the team captain, would then be eligible to claim prizes for the entire team. If the team captain makes a reply on this thread, at any time, stating the backup captain may claim prizes for the team, the 180 day rule doesn't apply, and the backup captain may claim prizes at any time.

Make sure your captain and backup captain are people you trust, because either of them may be eligible to claim all the prize winnings for the entire team.


Unregistered Team Warning:
  1. Any unregistered teams that win a jackpot before they register will have their team global removed as if it never happened. Any Gold they won will be removed from the unregistered team's balance and returned to the jackpot(s). Let this be a clear warning for any teams hunting on any of the Land Areas without registering first. If you happen to trigger a jackpot while in an unregistered team you will not keep any of the Gold won. You can register by messaging me in game, on Facebook, replying here, messaging me on Discord. My advice is DO NOT HUNT in the event while in an unregistered team.

Looks like another awesome grinder event. I do have one (probably dumb) question. How do you achieve levels for your avatar? I might have missed it on the website and couldn't watch the video while I was at work.

That was going to be my question. Is it one point per global?

Love your events Ms. Pudding! I can't wait to participate

First, thank you! Really great question. You gain levels the more globals you get. The leveling system in this event is akin to the skilling system in the game, where it becomes more difficult the higher you level. On average, the leveling system rewards about 2 PED per global (I wanna say its 1.85 or 1.9 if you want to be specific)

The lower levels will fly! The idea behind it, is to give rewards and incentives for the long term grind, but the bulk of the rewards come through the Gold, Silver, and jackpot system.

That was going to be my question. Is it one point per global?

Love your events Ms. Pudding! I can't wait to participate

High HP mobs count as 1 global
Low HP mobs count as .5

Bear in mind that you need to cycle about double the PED to global on a high hp vs low hp mob, so its balanced.

You would need twice as many globs on a small hp mob as a high hp mob to achieve the same level/rank, but its twice as easy to glob on em! ?

And, thank you! I'm so glad you've enjoyed them!

The quality of these events is unbelievable.

The time and effort shows MsPudding - time to break some new records! :dance:

Thank you for the kind words! ? Hopefully people find another reason to add to their list of "whys" when it comes to logging in.

The beer? Or the virus? This detail determines whether or not we let that ship dock at our spaceport.

What determines tiebreaker for weekly/monthly bonus? At first glance, it appears to be by alphabetical preference

Good question, Rick. Yes. In the case of a tie for 10th in the weekly, or 15th place in the monthly, it gives preference to alphabetical order.

The way the bonus points are setup, you get the same amount for 10th or 1st or 15th or 1st. My suggestion to anyone close to 10th or tied with it, is go hit up OLA#30 and grab a global worth 0.5 points, you'll pull ahead, and its very easy to global there.

Some of my thought behind organizing the competition bonuses this way, all paying the same amount was to encourage people to make it into the top 10 or top 15, but not so much that you were discouraged from even trying if you didn't get the silver bonuses. I didn't want the Silver bonuses weighted in such a way that the main focus of the event was competition, rather, I wanted that to be a side element that was more "fun" and not super stressful.

Lootius Mayhem, the other automated event you can see on the website, is meant to be stressful. Lootius Mayhem is a hyper competitive event that only lasts 35 days, and you've got to keep an eye on it most of that time. Granted, the prize pool there is rewarding enough that it does a good job keeping players involved, its stressful. Its all or nothing if you don't land a top 15 placement in that event. Currently, Lootius Mayhem is inactive.

GoldGrinder is supposed to be the event you can grind away at for months and years to come. Its supposed to be a "go at your own pace" kind of thing, and who cares if your name is 80th on the list, you probably put in 1/80th of the effort of #1, so its balanced in that regard. Yes, I think its fun to see your name move up and down the rankings, get little promotions and work toward level progressions, but the beef of the rewards in GoldGrinder are adding up in your personal Gold/Silver/level achievements. Also, those jackpots that keep building are capable of being won by anyone and any mob they're hunting with or without a loot 2.0 weapon. GoldGrinder is supposed to be a little more laid back, and be a true grinding event.

I mentioned this in the #entropiagold chat in game, but it might be good to have here too, that GoldGrider has the capability already coded in to be "paused" or frozen in time. Another, different type of event, say Lootius Mayhem, could run for 35 days, and then GoldGrinder picks up the next day, everyone's Gold/Silver/Levels would resume where they left off, unchanged.

A lot more of how this event is set up, or how I attempted to set it up, was to reward you for your personal effort. Yes there is an element of competition, but the lion share of the rewards are coming in the form of personal Gold and Silver.

I wanted people to feel secure investing months and even years into GoldGrinder, which is why currently I don't see it ever going away. If it becomes stale or boring at some point, perhaps a new event is in order, and then when people miss the grind we bring it back. If ever I was to terminate GoldGrinder I would give the community at least a 6 month warning or something so they could wrap up any close exchange levels, but honestly I'm not even thinking about that right now.

I just purchased custom global naming on all 4 land areas for 5 years, if that tells you my intent on keeping the servers up, the event running, and I hope to expand the platform and bring exciting new events in the future. But be aware that I have a family, full time job, and this "hobby" of mine is a passion I tinker with and work on when I have free time. GoldGrinder took me about 9-10 months putting it together, error testing, coding, designing artwork and promos, etc etc. So any new future events will be slow to come out, unless I expand my team.

I also intentionally set the triggers for the EntropiaGold Jackpot low enough that any of the event mobs can trigger it. And have, I might add. In analyzing past globals on all the mobs and maturities on the land areas, every single one of the 5 mobs triggered the EntropiaGold Jackpot. This made me happy. So its really just a matter of time now. Additionally, with loot 2.0 it can be a little trickier getting those big HOFs, but even all those thresholds are more than capable, and will get triggered many many times as the event chugs on.

Anyways, you asked about ties in the competition, and I've kind of gone over board with info, just dumping all my thoughts here. I've had a lot of thoughts the past few days, and perhaps it will help to get them on paper so you better understand where I'm coming from and where I want to take EntropiaGold. My vision for the platform is to not only continue to support it for years and years to come, but try and make it better. Gather feedback from you guys. I pop into Twitch streams and hear people discuss the event. Yea, sure its nice to hear kind words about how much fun people are having, but its more valuable if I pick up on the critiques. If someone says something on the website is confusing, I can try and update it and make things more clear. If someone thinks something is off balance I can look at it and see if their point is valid. Is it the opinion of one person, or many?

People are asking about a mining event, which honestly, I'd love to design! I don't have a good mining LA. If I can get a hold of a couple of nice mining LAs, sure, I think it would be great to have an automated event that's competitive and challenging for miners, but that's a LONG time off at this point.

Sorry, its late, and I'm really chatty and just dumping all my thoughts here. I probably repeated myself two or three times! ? definitely time for bed. ?
