As has been commented, not necessarily to win, as we don't know who will be where once things have been corrected, but rightfully entitling people to complain for sure.Generally speaking playing by the rules and achieving a significantly higher score than those posted as top placements does "rightfully entitle" a person to win.
nothing to do with sour graps, im sure you did your own calculations - in my case i know up to the second how long i spent in the instances and how many points i had at the end - and i can proof it from my chatlog as i marked the time spent in instances with my pet despawn message - mindark on the other hand shouldnt need my pet despawn message they should know exactly where my avatar was and how long and therefor be able to do the correct normalization score !not really, you're just assuming other scores.
if you say the calculations are wrong, then you should also assume the values for other players are wrong - so you really don't know what you're comparing yourself against.
enjoy the grapes
"your call is very important to us".........................................So how did this end ...are the ark forum results final?
And this is why MA is going the way of non competitive events…. But really the solution is to keep competitive events and just do their jobs!9 days after creating a respective support case as well as supplying additional information i have so far not seen a single response to it nor questions even though i pointed out that i could provide even more detailed information - nor have i heared from another player to have gotten a response to their cases.

I'd rather them work on developing the game and the new engine.
i used it to show to mindark when i entered the instances, i do have the message for the exit as well and i do have screenshots ov every run which show at the end of run the exact time to the second that one was in the instances - and it all matches. The only thing that doesnt match is whatever mindark calculated...Does the pet despawn message give an accurate time , or is there a delay such as there is when logging in?
I know there are times when I have crashed and when trying to log back in , it will say I am already logged in and to wait 1 minute.
I just discovered my support case for arkadia goldrush was closed already a few days ago just one day after i updated it with additional information and offering that i could provide more detailed information regarding instance exit timestamps as well - case 409872 - i have other players pming me telling me their cases got closed too...
I get it that most players probably didnt expect to have a chance in goldrush so maybe their support department thinks they can get away with shutting down a few voices - but this is larger then just a few players - mindark has a poor record for everything related to 'time' getting the event start times wrong, the server downtimes, the auction order times after server resets - im not surprised they got the times for goldrush wrong and in consequence the normalization and this impacts everyone - keep that in mind for future events if they dont bother fixing it now.
Btw i wouldnt be surprised if the auction order negative time bug extends to other areas and 'some' people may have had negative times added in their normalization score either - and everyone knows what that would mean i hope.
I got the exact same reply on my closed support case which was closed the second of the reply and it was also from Folke, wouldnt be surprised if he just closed all cases with the same reply round about the same time.My support case (support case 409973) was also closed without any info at all, just a copy paste answer..
This is the copy+paste answer I got - and this answer did NOT answer any of my info/report/questions in my support case - it's just a way from MA to tick the box "support case taken care of" even though it's not taken care of at all..
Thank you for contacting us.
We have forwarded your inquiry to members of the responsible team for further investigation, any irregularities found will be adjusted as soon as possible.

This is exactly the same thing as if you go into a store and the cashier accidently charge you $1000 instead of $10 and then when you talk to the owner of the store he says "Thanks for letting me know, check my website if we find any info about this mistake".
In other words - TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!
My score in Cathegory 3 Gold Rush was, normalized score, around 100 720 points - wich is more than all 3 winners in Cat 3
This time this had impact on me, JBK, Captain Jack - and possibly other people too - but remember, NEXT TIME it might be YOU that do not get a price because of something similar.
So if MA can do this and just wait until people give up - this will happen to YOU as well next time!
(for the record - ofc I can not know if also the 3 "winners" in cat 3 also had a bad/wrong calculated score, so I can't know 100% if I should have won or not - but at least MA should present correct scores and compensate those that are the correct winners)

this is a PP event not an entropia event, i don't expect MA to do jack shit about it other than scold ark and never allow them to do events again lmao
Dylan I Official — Today at 17:55 (arkadia discord)@everyone - We got the results back from MA - There were changes made and the reason for the long wait is to double check everything and make sure it is corrected. We went through every participant that partook in the event and these results will be published on Monday. I can confirm there were mistakes, but this does happen and we want to correct it, but we will make sure this never happens again. I will update everyone on Monday again.
Notice he didn't specify which year !Maybe he meant some other Monday...
