    Post Official Policy Regarding Participant-Organized Events

    Recently, certain types of participant-organized events in Entropia Universe have become increasingly popular that include a raffle, sweepstakes or other randomized or chance-based component.

    Because the marketing of such “raffle” and “sweepstakes” events has become more aggressive over time, and the events have an increasing emphasis on random selection of prize winners, it has become necessary for MindArk to announce and enforce a detailed policy for such events and activities.

    Section 8.14 of the Entropia Universe End User License Agreement states:

    Gambling activities are expressly forbidden in the Entropia Universe.

    In accordance with that section of the EULA, the following policy will be in effect and enforced starting on May 1, 2020:

    All participant-organized events or activities that include any sort of randomized winner selection and/or prize distribution process or component are prohibited in Entropia Universe.

    This policy is important to ensure that MindArk and Entropia Universe remain in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

    If you are uncertain whether an event or activity violates this policy, please open a support case with a detailed description of your proposed event or activity, and the support team will provide guidance. For previously-existing ongoing events that may be in violation of this policy, please contact support for assistance.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

    This is unfortunate because this is what people wanted. They want less shitty mayhem type stuff and more where anyone can win.

    I understand the pure chance stuff but you went too far with this language.

    To be fair though, HSL ingame to every other event EU based has Chance-Based component to it.

    That said, we will follow the norms as stipulated going forward.

    Cheers,

    Mayhems and EP4 are not participant-organized.

    HSL, well, partly participant, partly ingame by MA.

    Thank you for clarifying. So winners in player events should not be chance based but more deterministic.

    This definitely kills some of the creativity. But the other current events that have chance based models, will they be locked too?

    How many times I explained there no randomness in this game, and people still compare it whith a casino..

    The fun part is that even after this, alot of people will still believe EU is gambling..

    Finally they will remove 5k and other points from mayhems- no change based events allowed!

    oh wait... in that case they have to remove most activities from EU...
