Merry Mayhem 2019

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 Entropia Universe. Entrants may participate in two different Mayhem divisions: Mayhem Annihilation and Free-for-All (FFA) Mayhem.

Creatures in the Mayhem divisions have the potential to loot Christmas Strongboxes and Mayhem Tokens.

There is also an extra hunting mission for Merry Snargs on Planet Calypso for newcomers.

So grab your gear and join in the Mayhem!

Event Prizes
Prizes in Merry Mayhem are awarded in the form of Mayhem Tokens, which can also be looted from event creatures in this and other Mayhem-style events. Mayhem Tokens can be exchanged for exclusive items via the Mayhem Token Trader, located in Cape Corinth, Port Atlantis and Twin Peaks on Planet Calypso.

Mayhem Tokens can be accumulated over the course of several events to purchase more expensive items, allowing participants to make incremental progress toward their desired rewards.

Mayhem Tokens are non-tradeable, but the items available for purchase in the Mayhem Token Vendor are tradable. Note that certain Mayhem Token Vendor items may also require special Placement Mayhem Tokens, awarded as event prizes, in order to be purchased.

Practice Annihilation
There is also a Practice Annihilation mode, which is not part of the competition. This mode allows teams of up to 4 players to enter and has no skill requirement restrictions. Players can also enter without a team.

Practice Annihilation mode will allow hunters to try out different categories and hunt for Mayhem Tokens and Christmas Strongboxes at their leisure. The creatures in Practice Annihilation are Shared Loot. Practice Annihilation opens December 9, 14:00 UTC

Mayhem Annihilation Gameplay
  • Interact with the Julklapp inside the Annihilation event instance to begin spawning creatures and start the mission timer; the timer pauses automatically when leaving the instance.
  • Eliminate Merry Mayhem Creatures to accumulate as many points as possible in 15 hours.
  • A random number of points (0, 1, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, or 5000) is automatically awarded after defeating one of the event instance creatures.
  • Once your 15-hour run is complete, your score is finalized and recorded on the event leaderboard. You can then start a new run to try to improve upon your previously-recorded rank. The score from a subsequent run is only recorded if it would result in a higher leaderboard rank.
  • You can only have a recorded score in a single category at a time. Recording a new score with a higher leaderboard rank (regardless of category) will replace any previously-recorded score.
  • The top ten highest scorers (most accumulated points) in each category win prizes.

FFA Mayhem Gameplay
The Free-for-All Mayhem division allows hunters (either solo or in teams) to compete for prizes in an unrestricted, no-holds-barred single-category format.

FFA Mayhem instances are accessed via the Santa's Little Helper NPCs in Fort Ithaca, Fort Zeus and Nymphtown on Planet Calypso.

Loot in the FFA Mayhem instances may contain FFA Mayhem Stars of different values. Your FFA Mayhem score is based on the combined value of the FFA Mayhem Stars you hand in to the Santa’s Little Helper NPC’s.

The FFA Mayhem Star tokens are tradable, allowing participants to sell their FFA Mayhem Star tokens to the highest bidder instead of handing them in to the NPC’s.

FFA participants that want to take part in the FFA competition need to hand in their FFA stars to a Santa’s Little Helper NPC before January 22, 14:00 UTC. This will activate the FFA mission and add a Mission in your Mission Log UI.

There are no time requirements or skill/item restrictions in the FFA Mayhem division.

FFA Mayhem Prizes
1st Place - 1 Placement Mayhem Token + 100000 Mayhem Tokens
2nd Place - 1 Placement Mayhem Token + 50000 Mayhem Tokens
3rd Place - 1 Placement Mayhem Token + 25000 Mayhem Tokens
4th Place - 1 Placement Mayhem Token + 10000 Mayhem Tokens
5th Place - 1 Placement Mayhem Token + 5000 Mayhem Tokens
6th Place - 10000 Mayhem Tokens
7th Place - 8000 Mayhem Tokens
8th Place - 6000 Mayhem Tokens
9th Place - 4000 Mayhem Tokens
10th Place - 2000 Mayhem Tokens

Rules & Notes
This event 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.

It is possible for participants to abandon the Annihilation mission and restart the event. In order to prevent excessive use of this feature and to protect the fairness of the event, any participant who abandons the Annihilation mission more than 3 times will be considered disqualified from the event and ineligible for prizes.

Bypassing or attempting to bypass any of the event instance entry or item restrictions will be grounds for disqualification from the event, forfeiture of any prizes, and possible sanctions imposed on one’s Entropia Universe account.

Anyone found using multiple accounts to gain an unfair advantage or to win prizes in multiple categories or divisions will forfeit all prizes and risk additional sanctions on their Entropia Universe account(s), including potential account termination.

FFA participants that want to take part in the FFA competition should hand in their FFA stars to a Santa’s Little Helper NPC. This will activate the FFA mission and add a Mission in your Mission Log UI. Once added do not abandon the FFA Merry Mayhem mission. If you abandon the mission 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.

Happy Holidays and Merry Mayhem!

Nice!!!

I'm just a little bummed that they kept the prize payouts the same as last year's Annihilation token payout rates, while getting rid of Assault. So overall, this MM pays out less total mayhem tokens. Unless I'm reading it wrong, just looks like there's Annihilation and FFA. Maybe they want to revisit the payout structure for Annihilation and "buff" the rewards a little to compensate for no Assault mode??? :p

Either way, still stoked to participate! :)

I love mayhem events

Its a shame that I would have to chip out 30+ levels to make a chance. EU should be about skilling and advancing, not about chipping out!

Still I'll be happy to hunt in the free instances.

Selling ESI to those needing to chip out in order to stay in their respective guns category.......

Let’s create an event system in which we discourage people from playing 90% of the year. Brilliant!

Is HP soft capped, or did they do away with that?
Looking back at last year's announcement, in regards to the HP and DPS caps, the post was presented the same as this year's. Based on that, I would assume it's like before, a soft cap.

But we also had Assault, and this year seems to have changed that based on today's announcement. So, who knows!

Glad to see MM here again.

However why aren't cats simply about the players dps weapon and not pro standings? The top cat would be for whoever uses the term. and adjusted downwards.

Pro standing means nothing, the weapon used means everything.

So many people selling skills to stay in certain cats is just wrong. It makes the game look dysfunctional.

edit: and it is, for this very reason.

whats the problem? Mindark are genius! To win u only need to NOT play 90% of the year, and give away the skills u earn on the other side to stay in ur gun cat. that way u will always win, never evolve! The guy in ma office that went out with that event system and not moved it from a penny for years disserve a medal ! so i keep myself level 104 since years, and all that for NOTHING (i could be level 500, that would change absolutely NOTHING to my gun power or my result)

My wife and I are about to give up keeping our profession standing down to keep us in level 8-9. What that will mean is..the end of our ten years here.

I really really hope by Easter Mayhem that something changes but I thought that last year too but it's the end of the line for us.

Attributes are ruined , the event system is causing top level players to stop hunting during non event times.

These are your two bread and butter items.

Is there anyone out there? Those two things need priority.

Top players are always in cat 10 + and no one is stopping them to hunt as much as they want.

I agree, I refuse to try a contest/event where the winners are using rented weapons and chipping out their skills just enough so they they stay in the top 99% of their category. I'm smack in the middle and refuse to spend money to suck my skills away to compete in a lower level. I also refuse to pay out the butt to loose in my category. People might respond - find then don't play - yep you are right I'm not.
The one year I competed was when they handed out prizes to "random" other placements. I won a price for 50th or 30th place or something. I just hunted the best I could, improved as I went, got some good loots, and won a little prize. Now that is fun - not all this bull$hit
It's so messed up that skills are so worthless people can't even give them away.

Sometimes their entire family is in cat 10 all playing the same character. Your not someone players look to be, your someone that drives others to leave this game. If MA and it's investors are not aware of this they better become more aware.
