    Hey MA can u please Nerf 5k points. Its extremly unbalanced. U can do 3 times less dps than strongest hunter in category and lose 10 times less and get 3 times 5k and win. This just does not make sense att all. 5k Points should be nerfed to max 2k or 2,5k so this sheer dumb luck doesnt win the event where u have someone losing 5 times more and cant even come close to it, its extremly unbalanced like i said allready.
    Regards MeanMachine
    Hey MeanMachine, so you have a score of 32399 in Cat 7, more than 10,000 points then the #2 position.
    Did you post this thread... and then get 3x 5k points plus other bonus points? Or did you have that score already saved?

    Well, you will all notice that since he scored all those 5k's he didn't reply anymore to this whining thread.

    CQFD.

    No one is whining but we should look at fixing the event to make it competitive and increase participation. Right now so many people can't even participate in it because of the current structure. Then after that it's as mentioned to much RNG. Hopefully we can reach a much better system in the future that is competitive and allows people to compete without having to chip out skills. Then also feel like they have a real shot at winning.

    So you call it competitive if a lvl 120 player would compete in cat 4 with lvl 40-players? Well if i (lvl 98) would compete with my high-tiered low-lvl UL-gear in cat 4 i would call it bullying around with noobs …
    You aren't comprehending competition and a balanced instanced event. You can't bully anyone if your Dps is Capped for Cat 4. You are just competing against 100's of other players with their Dps capped. You also aren't looking at the bigger problem. If everyone keeps leveling this leaves some Categories empty ( No competition ) This isn't a format that works for an MMO where your core focus is progression.

    Eventually most players will be in the higher Cats with a bottle neck of either not enough new players to do the early Cats or players using Alts to compete because there isn't any competition in some Categories.

    It's pretty obvious this system doesn't work especially long term, it was okay while it lasted but it needs to desperately be redone so it's actually competitive and we can fill each Category. Again this would give players a reason to tier items and participate instead of not doing the event at all because it isn't competitive.

    Having lots of participants for each Category is a must and for it not to be confined to levels. Maybe have Cat 1 strictly for new players which is fine like they did on Ark for Gold Rush. However it would be great if players could use the gear collecting dust and participate in various Cats. Maybe I want to do a run in Cat 3 thru 6. It would be fun do different runs with different gear in the Cats. However most of us aren't Chipping out our progression for a non competitive event. So we just don't do events until they are changed ( hopefully soon ) I love the game and I love skilling just like many of you. Just hope there is events where skills don't eliminate your participating and making some Categories easy wins from a lack of players.

    I'm in 2nd, got 1 5k and a few other nice ones.. I don't expect it to hold, but I'll still compete as I am ever the optimist and believe I will score one day.... There will always be complaints that it isn't fair no matter the format, always has, always will

    So that a small circle of players swapping around the same weapon can make up the winners year after year after year .

    Yeah i remember the bad old times.
    Easily solved by making it so any item used in an event instance cannot be used by any other avatar until the event is over.

    Easily solved.

    (A reply in general, not directly to you MM)
    Imo there is no such thing as "luck" or "random" in EU since that require way more code than
    using math instead.
    Reason why same people over and over again get better things are that they create right values.
    There are three parts in a loot, gear that create the value, target that require a value and the
    avatars values that makes the progression and interactions more unpredictable.
    Its all aboubt matching numbers, not hit something with most damage.
    Why can a noob hit a big one? Its due his progression in combination with right gear creating right
    values for the target.
    And no, I'm not gonna try to convience people to believe in this, since everyone can believe in
    whatever they want.
    Actually i belive in this and i did create the right value this time
