After HM debacle and WoF fiasco I promised myself that if this happened again with MM I was going to another planet so I could at least insure that I would have some fun. Well, it happened again and I went to Rock, was part of a 2200ped HOF there and have thoroughly enjoyed not having to put up with the crap from MM. :eyecrazy::eyecrazy:

As far as I'm concerned.. Merry Mayhem is over. I've spent 7.5 hours inside the instance, enduring insane lag, endless "Failed" messages along with "Item already equipped" and "Waiting for previous action to finish". I would have to hit a hotkey 5-15 times in order to get an item to respond and using a high DPS weapon with 70 attack per minute was pointless because it kept getting stuck and was unresponsive.

The result of all of this is a score thats so completely fucked, its nearly impossible to recover and pointless to try. I was trending for ~8,400 points and I should have been trending for ~15,000

Never have I felt "scammed" out of money by doing an event... this time I do. Loot was complete shit and the game was unplayable.

This year's Merry Mayhem winners will simply be the people with the least amount of lag.

What a disappointment

Hi. Can someone tell me how ponts count in team category?? I Thought all points go to team leader but i noticed that max damage done to mob takes them. So what now?? Shall we take 1 player with highest dps and secure him during hunt. Or we can shoot like we want and all ponts will be added to one box??

Sorry for my bad eng :)
Cheers.

Yes the team categories have always been that way, points go to most damage person, you have to plan accordingly with your team.

40 Hours Balanced score....

Hello,

I have a Question:

MA says:

Avatar A - Point total: 4000, Hours : 40, Hourly point average: 100, 40-hour normalized score: 4000
Avatar B - Point total: 6900, Hours: 72, Hourly point average: 95.83, 40-hour normalized score: 3833.33


Then will it be true that example:

Avatar C - Point total: 6000, Hours: 40, Hourly point average: 150, 40-hour normalized score: 9000 ?

Thanks.

What about bonus prizes how does that work? U still need to put in 40h to grab let´s say the 500 points bonus prize? (coz i´m unsure I can do that tis X-mas) and what about if someone put´s in 60h yet reaches 500points? Found this (taking a huge risk, clicking berthas link though ;P)

cut from http://www.planetcalypso.com/events/merry-mayhem-2014/index.xml bolded what i can´t understand...

Bonus Prizes - Solo Categories

All solo participants who reach the following point totals will automatically receive bonus prizes in the form of Universal Ammo, as follows:

500 Points - 50 PED Universal Ammo
2000 Points - 200 PED Universal Ammo
5000 Points - 500 PED Universal Ammo
7500 Points - 750 PED Universal Ammo
10000 Points - 1000 PED Universal Ammo

...maybe it´s been answered but thread is long and I can´t find a suitable answer to this one...

regards & happy holiday and all! :beerchug:

Lucky. In 4 days I haven't been able to get in once. Not 1 time. Amazing. :scratch2:
Are u at miniopolis? That one does nothing for me, doesn't even say you can't go in (although it worked on sat, since then it hasn't). Ithaca works fine today and half of yesterday after they sorted the servers out.


I've noticed very little lag like others either. Everything has been fine for me except the weekend when people were clicking for an hour to get in, I just did something else and waited for them to fix it on monday when they went back to work.

You automatically get paid when you reach the required score. So you actually get all of the prizes not just one like halloween. So that's 2,500ped in total :)

He writes "I was trending for ~8,400 points and I should have been trending for ~15,000"

I am fairly sure he means that if he had continued to finish the 40+ hours, then his final score would have been somewhere around 8400 points normalized score. And it should have been ~15000 instead of ~8400 normalized score.

MM is totally fraud this year. It is a waste of time to try to compete, as the ubers have simply chipped out to downgrade to lower levels (like Helena, who is level UBER, and went down to level 4) and are now smashing competition with her uber weapons and armor. Pure bullshit.

MA can, but won't, correct this crap so, unless you are uber, YOU WILL NOT WIN.

Same shit - different event. Ubers win and we all stuff MA's bank account to pay them.

FIX THE FUCKING LAG

Seriously, why are we paying so much money per day on something that's known for not working properly and will never be fixed/complete? Also, people are having hard times logging in. Such a joke. Imagine you bought a new computer and it can't even boot up properly.

Roughly 180ish points killing a mix of aras and kerbs and 90+ each hour mostly aras. But also not there to win as i'm in the lowest bracket in cat 3.

It's funny how I can still have lag, FPS drop, and failed messages inside MM instances. This ALSO happens when I use the neurostim pills (for offense anyways). I have a brand new system and it works fine anywhere else in the game. I run max settings at a constant 100+ FPS. But I enter MM and drop a neurostim and I get a game bog down every 5 shots.

Gen 3 i7 3.8 GHz, 32 GB DDR3 ram, 2x Geforce 770 GTX 2GB (so 4 GB total).

Let's be honest, at no point at any place in EU should I experience performance issues :D

Restarting after the neurostim wears off seems to help. Weird though.

Just a guess...

Your using Neurostim-X right?

What weapon are you using? Does it have a very fast rate of fire?

Maybe your shooting so fast that the "servers" are unable to keep up with the calculations....and hence the failed messages?

:rolleyes:
