Halloween Mayhem 2013 Event

Get ready for the most terrifying event in Planet Calypso history!

Before you read it all here are some FAQs:

Anyone can enter whichever Halloween Mayhem instance they want, the Pumpkin drop rates have been adjusted according to mob difficulty.

The points are based on the Pumkins you've handed to the mission NPC.

The pumpkins are non-tradable

If someone does 20 hours, abandons the missions, accepts its again, and hunts another 40 hours will be disqualified.

The Halloween Mayhem event token items (Halloween Pumpkins) will be distributed in a way that is more balanced than was the case in the Feffox Mayhem event. To clarify, "The Halloween pumpkins have been distributed in relation to creature difficulty" means that the likelihood of looting event tokens is a direct function of the time and cost of killing each of the different event creatures and bosses.

For example, if Creature A has 100 HP and Creature B has 200 HP -indicating that it takes approximately twice as long to kill Creature B- Rotten Halloween Pumpkins (worth 1 event point) will be roughly twice as common in loots from Creature B than from Creature A.

The scaling used to calculate the relative loot frequencies of the event tokens includes several factors: creature health, threat level, damage distribution, regeneration and alpha damage.

Thus, assuming that a hunter can kill both Creature A and Creature B in a reasonable amount of time compared to other participants, the choice of which creature to hunt should not have a significant impact on the event outcome.

This system should result in participants being able to hunt in any of the instances while still having a proportionate chance of looting each of the various event tokens.

It's true that the top hunters have an advantage they're by no means guaranteed to win. The luck factor involved in looting the big pumpkins makes it possible for a lesser hunter to be propelled into a prize position.

Even if you "know" you can't win the event there are still many lootable reasons to participate.

Fight your way through hordes of undead as you compete for the prizes in this year’s Halloween event, featuring...
  • A spooky haunted graveyard instance
  • Two creepy new creatures and two new bosses

Special loot, including Halloween Candy, a consumable booster item
… and lots of great prizes!

In this Mayhem style event, similar to the Feffox Mayhem event, you will hunt in a solo instance and score points by looting and handing in Halloween pumpkins. The Halloween pumpkins have been distributed in relation to creature difficulty, so that hunters in all five instance levels have a fair chance at scoring points in the event.

The Halloween Mayhem event starts on Thursday November 7th, 00:00:00 UTC and ends on Sunday November 17th, 23:59:59 UTC.

Rules & Notes

Each participant is limited to a maximum of 40 hours in the Halloween event instances. This 40 hour limit applies to combined time in any of the Halloween instances, not each individual instance level. Event participants must keep track of their time spent in the event instances, since the current instance system unfortunately does not track time spent across multiple login/instance sessions.

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.

Do not abandon the mission! If you abandon the mission for any reason, either intentionally or accidentally, all points earned up to that point will be lost forever. Support cannot and will not restore points for abandoned missions, regardless of the situation.
Happy Hunting!

Happy hunting and Happy Halloween!
