No time to read? Skip everything, just read I. Qualification and II. 8-ball event basics. Everything you have to know!

New 8-ball restarts at 27th November with early qualification.

Link to Qualification stats
Winners of 8-ball

8-ball: Hit exactly 88 ped in mining or hunting -
88 ped for you!

New competition started after 8-ball Jackpot won by Sir Officer Doofy: 1676 PED - Congratulations!
Be the next to win the new jackpot starting on 1st December!


Link to FAQ

Link to HSL events



I. Qualification, starting 27 November
To be qualified for the 8-ball event, or any other event on OLA40, aside from HSL, you need 15 globals and hit 1x88 ped global. HSL globals after 27 November count for qualification. Mining globals count for qualification, too, but only up to 5 globals.

The first, second and third qualified players are rewarded 50 ped. All other qualifying players are awarded 25 ped.

Qualification must be attained every month to participate in other events, except HSL. The rewards can be earned every month as above.


Starter time bonus for Qualification: 27 November - 30 November 2020, qualification starts here, HSL globals count in these days for the qualification for December.



II. 8-ball-event, starting 1 December



This is a Get-the-8-ball-event: “Will I win?” *shaking the 8-ball* “So it shall be.”

Basics:

Hunt quickly and attain a certain number of globals before other players to win prizes.


Details:

How to win (after qualification)


There are “time-based prizes” depending on how quickly you get a certain amount of globals.

For “ball prizes” you need to do certain tasks, e.g., hitting a mining global of +200 ped.



III. Winning the 8-ball-jackpot
You must be qualified.


Total prizes of 8-ball event: 7044 peds.

Be the 1st player with 110 globals – win 500 ped!
2nd player with 120 globals –
wins 500 ped
3rd player with 130 globals – wins 300 ped + cancels one 8-ball jackpot bullet point!
4th to 6th player with 140 globals –
wins 200 ped + cancels one 8-ball jackpot bullet point!
These six players must be different players, e.g., you cannot be both the first and third player.


These time based prizes count both for mining and hunting. You can have 20 mining globals and 90 hunting globals to reach 99 globals. The limit for mining globals to reach these time prizes is 20 mining globals.


The 8–ball jackpot – 208 ped.
The 8–ball treasure – 104 ped.

Complete the following tasks:
8-ball
– Hit exactly 88 ped –
you win 88 ped bonus! (hunting only, unlimited players)
1-ball – A global bigger than 888 ped –
you win 33% of treasure bonus! (hunting only, 2x player with prize)
2-ball – Gain 88 globals within a month –
you win 5% of treasure bonus! (hunting or mining, limit of 10 mining globals within each 88 global stack, unlimited players)
3-ball – 10 globals within a day –
you win 3% of treasure bonus! (hunting only, 5x player with prize left, won 0 times)
4-ball – 3 globals above 150 ped within a day –
you win 5% of treasure bonus! (hunting only, 5x player with prize left, won 0 times)

Everything achieved?
Congratulations, you won the 8-ball jackpot!

Doesn’t sound hard, does it?



IV. Other prizes in 8-ball event and details
You must be qualified.



Hunting balls - each single player may hit them multiple times, until the stated amount of players is reached:
5-ball – you hit 55 ped – get 1% treasure bonus! (5x players)
6-ball – 20 globals within one day (EU time) – 5% treasure bonus (x2 player)

7-ball – 500-600 ped global – 5% treasure bonus! (x2 player)
9-ball – two globals within 5 minutes – 1% treasure bonus! (x5 players)



Mining balls - each single player may hit them once only, until the stated amount of players is reached:
10-ball – you hit 88 mining globals - you get 88 ped (unlimited players)

11-ball – you hit 20 mining globals within a day - 88 ped (3x player)
12-ball – you hit a mining global with 200-250 ped – you get 200 ped (x2 players)

13-ball – mining global with exactly 100 ped – you get 222 ped (x1 player)
14-ball – mining global between 101 to 129 ped – you get 50 ped (x1 players)

White ball – mining global with 700-749 ped – you get 400 ped (x2 player)
Hidden ball – mining global with at least 1000 ped – you get 700 ped (x1 player).


Team hunts in 8-ball event

  1. You have to be qualified. Find another qualified player from Entropia Universe Register and contact him. Qualified players are listed in tinyurl.com/atroxvalley post in PCF.
  2. Give your team name one players name as leader of your team.
  3. Let that player register/mail your team by an in-game message to me before you start hunting. Mostly I am online and will answer. By registration all team players have to be qualified and you have to name those qualified players.
  4. The leader of the team can qualify a second time now, same rules and restrictions apply as everywhere, like 8-ball prizes and others, the team leader counts as a new player. I will pay out prizes only to him. It is up to you how you share. As restrictions apply like above, e.g., the team cannot be the 2nd player reaching 110 globals for example. However the team can hit another 88 globals for example.
  5. The prizes that are limited cannot be hit twice by a team hunt (there is still only 1x Hidden ball, e.g.)
These events can be combined with Hunting Night and Swirl Competition.



Any questions? Feel free to contact me!

Let's roll! First task: reaching qualification. Go!




Good luck!

FAQ
Where are the events? Akmuul Island TP (Calypso, 25132, 27315) north-west, OLA40 Atrox Valley (23276, 28321)
Who runs the events? Leshrac Holynight Brevin;
link to introduction.
Who can win prizes? Everyone that is qualified. You need 15 globals to qualify.
How long do the events last? 1 September till 31 October on first shot. The main event will end earlier if a player gets the 8-ball-jackpot.
What prizes are there? Complete the 8-ball-event: 7044 peds total. Single prizes: 1676 ped, 1000 ped, 888 ped, 500 ped, etc.
What do I need to take part in the event? A gun and ammo! You need 15 globals to qualify. There are also mining prizes after qualification!
Are there smaller prizes to win? Yes, 25 ped, 50 ped, 88 ped, 200 ped, etc. 15 globals = up to 50 ped!
Are there highest single loot (HSL) events as well? Yes, every Saturday, 19:00 EU time, free or low cost.
How does HSL work? Compatible with all other events, your globals count for, e.g., qualification (if not excluded). HSL wins 100 ped, second 200 ped and third 50 ped. It’s free to enter, occasionally small protection fees.
Are there also special HSL? Yes, within which there will be, for example, 1st player 4000 ped, 2nd player 400 ped, 3rd player 100 ped awards.

I started with the first event on 1 September. Can I get prizes? No, as mentioned above, all events need qualification. Qualification however starts 25 September. You will get HSL prizes however and the global size of the day, mentioned on top.
It says 15 globals to qualify, so do those 15 globals count towards the 99? No. As it says in section "III. Winning the jackpot" you have to be qualified to take part in the 8-ball event.

Similarly, if you get an 888+ ped while not qualified it doesn't count, right? No, the 888+ ped is a reward within the 8-ball event. However, to take part in the 8-ball event, you have to complete the mission "Qualification". So the missison "Qualification" is the requirement to take part in 8-ball event. No qualification, no 8-ball rewards.
Does Swirlies in HSL still count as a qualifer for the other event? When the HSL is on the 25 September or later, then yes. HSLs 24 Sept and earlier: no. Qualification starts 25 September, all HSL after 25 September count to qualification to 8-ball event.

What happens, if i get the 1k ped mining before I qualify? The Hidden ball can only be found by qualified players.
Can you hit balls multiple times, like two Hidden balls? T
here is only 1x Hidden ball like stated in the balls list, therefore it can only found once, by one player.
Can I hit 8-ball jackpot by mining globals only? Mining globals count only for the 88 globals, the 2-ball. Mining prizes can not be the same ball, like 88 ped mining global equals not the 8-ball, 88 ped hunting global.

What do tickets do? And what is qualification? Qualifying for what? Tickets will give u free entrance to a normally paid event. Some events are free, some cost 8 ped, 15 ped, 20 ped or 33 ped, depending on the prizes you can win. You can register with that ticket on the land marker for free. Registration has to be done some time before event starts. Qualification = 15 globals. You have to qualify every month. Qualification is needed to take part in 8-ball event and all 8-ball prizes, also jackpot.
When can I qualify?
Any time. Qualification is an ongoing event, it does not depend on HSL. Qualification has to be done every month, only September and October count until 31 October. Some people have Qualification points already, because they took part in Pre-Qualification HSL events.

More detailed rules/clarifications/interesting figures (helps, but not neccessary)
Qualification
  • To qualify, you need 15 globals on OLA40. This is the entry to other events. The qualification itself is rewarded with 25 ped.
  • The first three qualifying players are awarded 50 ped instead of 25 ped. All HSL globals count towards qualification, when they happen 25 September and afterwards. They count for the October qualification. November you need to qualify again, starting 1 November.
  • You must qualify every month to take part in any event. You are awarded the qualification sum each month if you re-qualify for that month.
Types of prizes
  • The time-dependent prizes of being 1st to 6th player to reach a certain amount of globals for prizes cannot be combined, e.g., the same player cannot be both the 1st and 2nd person.
  • All other “x-ball prizes” can be combined (getting mining global of 200 ped, getting 88 globals, hitting 88 ped, being 1st player with 99 globals, etc.)
  • The 8-ball can be hit multiple times by every qualified player. This task cannot be cancelled by the reward of the third to sixth player hitting 100+ globals.
  • The 8-ball can even be hit, if any other event ends. The 2-ball can also even be hit if any other event ends. However, you have to be qualified and therefore it cannot be rewarded before 25 September.

Ball prizes
  • The 8-ball-jackpot of (1676 ped, it is a dynamic prize now) is an auto win for the first player that hits all required balls or that cancels the remaining, unachieved balls.
  • Whenever something states “within a day”, EU time from 00:00 to 23:59 is meant.
  • The 1-ball can be hit once within the event. After that, to win the 8-ball-jackpot you either need to complete the task mentioned in that bullet point (at least 888 ped global) or be able to cancel it with a reward (3rd to 6th player hitting +100 globals), but after the first player, it has to be knocked down without a prize. However, it is allowed to cancel this bullet point by the rewards of 3rd to 6th players that reached the mentioned amount of globals.
  • The 2-ball can be hit multiple times by every player. If you are trying to be the 1st to 6th player, of course at 88 globals it is paid out before you reach the next amount of globals, e.g., the same player can win for both 2x 88 globals also for 2x 88 ped.
  • The 3-ball can be hit three times maximum within the event. After that to win the 8-ball you need that bullet point, but after three players it is knocked down without a prize. A player can hit it multiple times, but there are only three prizes for all players altogether. There are not three for three players, there are three prizes altogether.
  • The 4-ball may be hit three times maximum within the event. After that, to win the 8-ball-jackpot you need that bullet point, but after three players it is knocked down without a prize. A player can hit it multiple times, but there are only three prizes for all players altogether. There are not three for three players, there are three prizes altogether.

Thank you for the inquiry. I will clarify this:
No, they do not count for qualification until 25th Sept., for 8-ball until 1st Oct. all HSL have only the extra peds from their specific description, such as:

- 50 ped @ 100 ped bonus
- 75 ped @ 75 ped bonus
- 100 ped @ 50 ped bonus
- 88 ped @ 88 ped bonus
- most globaling player gets 88 ped extra
- global size of the day, atm 99 ped @ 100 ped bonus

or even a combination of all above.
Read the event description from event register of the specific HSL in-game for that, it changes for each HSL event.

When qualification starts, the globals count for the achievement of qualification. When 8-ball starts at 1st Oct, all events are working together: Globals count for qualification, after that is achieved, they count for 8-ball event, any specific HSL rules for extra ped are compatible with the ongoing 8-ball event and qualification.

You missed 1 x 88 ped and 50 ped for early qualification. wargeneral and Torene had earlier 9-balls, however.

Should be 2546 PED at end of today. GZ! :woot: And at the moment, 1676 Jackpot is waiting to be won...

Your mining clock for 50 globals restarts, when you reach the 88 minimum globals for 2-ball. Its time to bomb! 💣

You can either have it all paid out tomorrow or one part by today. :) Good luck for the jackpot!

I hope you are in profit by now?

Congratulations, great performance! :yay:

Niiiiice, well done Torene! :) Also for you: 1676 Jackpot is waiting, and you can be the second with 110 globals for another 500 PED! Do not miss to make the 88 globals for another 100 PED!

The Hidden Ball of 1000 PED for Mining is not found, go for that! :)

For everyone, just to clarify again:

In order to win the Jackpot, 3-ball and 4-ball have still to be found, however without any prize, as that is limited to three times only until restart of the event.
