Merry Mayhem 2020


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!


Special Mission: Jul Snarg Hunt
Merry Snargs are on the rampage, and it’s up to you to keep them under control!

The Merry Snarg spawn will run during the time of the Merry Mayhem competition event, see dates above.

What's with the Hogglo int he banner? Tat Hogglo is not a part of the Merry Mayhem since 2 years ago.


Also, any chance there's a typo in this statement?

  • Feb. 3 - Event results announced. Prizes awarded in the following days.

Should say 'weeks or months' :D

Good luck everyone!

Can anybody find a fitting copy and paste for whenever they don't even change the year in the announcements? Still, going back a year in time may be exactly the right move - if only it could be done...!
(I didn't even notice that the event ends 11 months before it starts! Is that something we completely failed to notice last time round?)

I know it's not the first mayhem, so perhaps a stupid question, but will the boxes from previous years automatically turn into one of the current year ? :p

A few have mentioned to me that FFA5 was bugged but it should work as intended now. Please let me know if there are any more problems. The fastest way to reach me is through Discord, you're welcome to chat anytime.

Is it intended that this year tokens are not dropping in FFS?

at this point MA deadlines are a complete joke

Edit: I spoke too soon. But 10:26pm MA time is a weird time to be posting results.

Ummm... the results were posted on February 3rd here, so how exactly did MA miss a deadline? ?

let’s just say our expectations are pretty low at the moment. I’m sure you can understand why.
