It’s time once again for Planet Calypso’s annual winter hunting extravaganza - Merry Mayhem!

Running over the Christmas and New Year holiday period, Merry Mayhem is one of the most exciting and popular events in all of Entropia Universe, with lots of valuable prizes. Entrants may participate in either or both the “Solo Mayhem” category (solo hunting) and the “Free-For-All Mayhem” category (team hunting) and score points by looting Mayhem Star tokens. There’s also an extra hunting mission alongside the main event for newcomers!

There have been a few adjustments this year to improve your Merry Mayhem experience.

So grab your best gear and join in the Mayhem!

Event Dates
  • Dec 16, 14:00:00 UTC - The Santa's Little Helper NPCs in Nymphtown, Fort Zeus and Fort Ithaca become active and the event begins.
  • Jan 17, 14:00:00 UTC - Event ends.
  • Jan 24, 14:00:00 UTC - Cutoff for submission of FFA Mayhem Stars for the Free For All Mayhem category.
  • Feb 7 - Event results announced.

Categories
The Merry Mayhem event offers two competition categories: Solo Mayhem and Free For All (FFA) Mayhem, with five instance areas for each category.

Solo Mayhem, as the name implies, is the place for individual hunters to shine. Only a single avatar may enter the solo event instances.

The Free For All category allows groups of participants to work together to accumulate points. Participants must be in an active team in order to enter the FFA Mayhem instances. FFA Mayhem Stars are tradable, allowing participants to farm point tokens that can be sold to the highest bidder, or turned in to increase their own event scores.

Event Registration & Participation
Santa's Little Helper event NPCs are located in Nymphtown, Fort Zeus and Fort Ithaca. Speak with one of these NPCs to enter an instance of your choice. Entering an instance will activate the mission corresponding to the category, Solo instances for Solo Mayhem and FFA instances for FFA Mayhem. The Merry Mayhem Solo and FFA missions can be active simultaneously.
Event points are earned by looting special Mayhem Stars for the Solo Mayhem event, and FFA Mayhem Stars for the FFA Mayhem event (see below).

Solo Mayhem Creatures
  • Solo 1 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (Solo 1) [Danger 6], Mayhem Araneatrox (Solo 1) [Danger 11], Yulebot (Solo 1) [Danger 17]
  • Solo 2 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (Solo 2) [Danger 9], Mayhem Araneatrox (Solo 2) [Danger 17], Yulebot (Solo 2) [Danger 26]
  • Solo 3 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (Solo 3) [Danger 16], Mayhem Araneatrox (Solo 3) [Danger 28], Yulebot (Solo 3) [Danger 42]
  • Solo 4 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (Solo 4) [Danger 30], Mayhem Araneatrox (Solo 4) [Danger 54], Yulebot (Solo 4) [Danger 80]
  • Solo 5 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (Solo 5) [Danger 50], Mayhem Araneatrox (Solo 5) [Danger 78], Yulebot (Solo 5) [Danger 140]

FFA Mayhem Creatures
  • FFA 1 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (FFA 1) [Danger 14], Mayhem Araneatrox (FFA 1) [Danger 21], Yulebot (FFA 1) [Danger 36]
  • FFA 2 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (FFA 2) [Danger 27], Mayhem Araneatrox (FFA 2) [Danger 38], Yulebot (FFA 2) [Danger 68]
  • FFA 3 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (FFA 3) [Danger 56], Mayhem Araneatrox (FFA 3) [Danger 75], Yulebot (FFA 3) [Danger 136]
  • FFA 4 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (FFA 4) [Danger 89], Mayhem Araneatrox (FFA 4) [Danger 115], Yulebot (FFA 4) [Danger 203]
  • FFA 5 Instance: Mayhem Kerberos (FFA 5) [Danger 133], Mayhem Araneatrox (FFA 5) [Danger 158], Yulebot (FFA 5) [Danger 307]

Scoring
Solo Merry Mayhem
Event points are scored by looting special Mayhem Star event tokens. In Solo Merry Mayhem, looting one of the Mayhem Star tokens automatically increments your event score. The Mayhem Star tokens can be saved as souvenirs, or discarded at the Trade Terminal. Solo Mayhem Star tokens are non-tradable.

Final event scores will be calculated based on hourly point averages to derive each participant's 40-hour normalized event score.

This scoring method removes the need for participants to track time spent in the instances (beyond meeting the 40-hour prize eligibility requirement, described below), removes the risk of participants being inadvertently disqualified from the event for time reasons, and allows all participants to hunt as much as desired in the Solo Merry Mayhem instances without giving an unfair advantage to those who are able to hunt for many hours.

Example
  • 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
In this example, Avatar A would place higher in the final results, even though Avatar B has more total points.

Highest Single Loot Bonus - The participant who scores the highest single loot on each of the various Solo Mayhem creatures outlined above will receive a 25% boost to their final 40-hour normalized score! (Limit of one bonus per participant).

***IMPORTANT*** A participant must complete at least 40 hours in the Solo Mayhem instances in order to qualify for winning a prize in the Solo Mayhem category.

FFA Merry Mayhem
Event points are scored by turning in FFA Mayhem Star tokens to one of the Santa’s Little Helper NPCs located in Nymphtown, Fort Zeus and Fort Ithaca. Acquire FFA Mayhem tokens by defeating creatures in one of the FFA Mayhem instances, or by acquiring tokens from other participants.

There are no time requirements or restrictions in the FFA Mayhem category.

Rules & Notes
The Solo Mayhem category is intended for solo hunters. Any attempt at abusing team mechanics or any other Entropia Universe systems or features in order to gain an unfair advantage over other participants will be grounds for disqualification from the event, forfeiture of any prizes, and possible sanctions imposed on one’s Entropia Universe account.

Do not abandon the Merry Mayhem missions! If you abandon one of the event missions for any reason, intentionally or accidentally, all points earned up to that point will be lost forever and will not be included in your final event score. Support cannot and will not restore points for abandoned missions, regardless of the situation. Any time spent in the Solo Mayhem instances during the event period will be included in the normalized score calculation, regardless of whether the mission had been abandoned and points reset.

***IMPORTANT*** A participant must complete at least 40 hours in the Solo Merry Mayhem event instances in order to qualify for winning a prize.

For the Highest Single Loot (HSL) score bonus (Solo Mayhem only), if the participant who achieves the HSL on one of the Merry Mayhem creatures does not meet the 40-hour prize eligibility requirement, the next highest loot for the creature in question will be considered. And so on, until a prize-eligible participant is awarded the HSL score bonus. The same applies for cases where a participant has scored the HSL on more than one of the Solo Merry Mayhem creatures.

Happy Holidays and Merry Mayhem!
The Planet Calypso Team

F.A.Q.
Q: If I experience a client crash, disconnection or other issue while in one of the Merry Mayhem instances, how will this affect my time calculation and/or final score?
A: All calculations are based on actual time connected to one of the event instances. In the case of a client crash or disconnection, time in the event instance will stop being counted within approximately 10 seconds of disconnection.

Q: Is it possible to win a prize in more than one category?
A: Yes. Everyone can participate in both the Solo and Free-For-All (FFA) Mayhem event categories.

I bet this is a mistake:

FFA Merry Mayhem

1st Place - Christmas Ring 2016 + Mayhem Scintillator Viridian
2nd Place - Christmas Ring 2016 + Mayhem Scintillator Heliotrope
3rd Place - Christmas Ring 2016 + Mayhem Scintillator Viridian
4th Place - Christmas Ring 2016 + Mayhem Scintillator Azure

Should be Mayhem Scintillator Cobalt

Harvestable trees are visible from a bit greater distance (but who cares when you can just mouse-over them from any distance :silly2:)
The real problem with harvesting is the 1m range of Terratechs, I hope they fix it some day...

Holy. Shit.

Talk about a slippery slope. Was hoping I would never see the day that rings directly affected your loot window. If this buff counts for Treasure Hunting SOOTOs, it's a potential game changer.

Also... :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

Running over the Christmas and New Year holiday period, Merry Mayhem is one of the most exciting and popular events in all of Entropia Universe
:lolup:
Talk about setting the bar low. 40 Hours of repetitive grinding is the most exciting event you guys can think of? ;)

well if we tried something that needed intelligence or effort in finding something or solving clues the solutions would get posted on a forum and everyone would complete it easily and demand a prize :laugh:

besides that wouldn't encourage people to deposit a shit load of $$$ to compete.

As for the 25% mining chance if it's currently 1 in 1000 or 0.1% then this would make it 1.25 in a 1000 or 0.125% without knowing the original odds a 25% increase is meaningless.
