Event Description

Entropia Universe is excited to present Mining Mania, a new universe-wide mining event open to all participants on all planets throughout the Universe.

Event Dates

Start: Friday, March 13 2015, 16.00 UTC
End: Monday, March 16 2015, 16.00 UTC

Format & Rewards

The participant who claims a mining loot closest to 150 PED on each of the qualifying resources listed below during the event will receive one of eight Mining Mania Reward Packages containing the following items:

  • Mining Skill Implant (20 PED)
  • Level VIII Finder Amplifier ‘Athena’ (L) (208 PED)
  • 1 x Neurobiotic Booster M5 10mg (10 Hours - 50% increased Mining skill gain)

Qualifying Resources

Bonus Reward

In addition, the colonist with the highest single mining loot on any of the qualifying resources during the event will receive a Level 7 Finder Amplifier (repairable).

Notes

All of the qualifying resources can be found on all Entropia Universe planets.

Qualifying loots will be determined using internal server logs, which record values to 6 decimal places. Note that in-game global messages only display integer values for loot PED values, and are sometimes rounded.

For the Mining Mania reward packages, there is a limit of one reward per participant. In cases where a single participant achieves a loot closest to 150 PED on more than one of the qualifying resources, the 2nd closest loot to 150 PED will receive the reward. Prizes will be determined in alphabetical order of the qualifying resources.

5k Skill Buff Weekend!

Let's celebrate 5000 Facebook likes!

Since the first post on Entropia Universe's Facebook page on January 22 2013 we have reached an ever expanding audience with News, Tips & Tricks, status information and popular Event adverts.

Now we are closing in on a new milestone, the 5000 Likes line!

To celebrate this we want to invite you all to a special Skill Buff Weekend event.

This Skill Buff event will start on

  • Friday June 27 at 10.00 UTC

and end on

  • Monday June 30 10.00 UTC.



The skill buff feature will be active on all planets in Entropia Universe as well as in Space.

 

How it works:

Skill Buffing allows your Avatar to gain skills with a bonus factor for a limited time period. The Buff is automatically triggered while playing to give you a bonus increase in one of the skills involved in your current activity. The strength and duration of the Skill Buff you receive is also dependent of the level of your recent activity. This feature gives you an extra edge to your game-play and allows your activity in Entropia Universe to pay off in skill gains faster. This weekend we increase the strength and the chance of getting the Skill Bonus.

The Skill Bonus Buff symbols will become visible in the Dashboard, by default in the lower right part of your screen. Hovering over the symbols will show the Type and Strength of the Skill Bonus you will get during the Buff period. The Buff symbols appearance differ by the kind of Skill Buff you have received. The Skill Bonus event will be active on all planets inside Entropia Universe and in Space.

Hope you can join us in the celebration! See you inworld!
