Event Prizes

Prizes in Merry Mayhem are awarded in the form of Mayhem Tokens, which can also be looted from event creatures in this and other Mayhem-style events. Mayhem Tokens can be exchanged for exclusive items via the Mayhem Token Trader, located in Cape Corinth, Port Atlantis and Twin Peaks on Planet Calypso.
 

Mayhem Tokens can be accumulated over the course of several events to purchase more expensive items, allowing participants to make incremental progress toward their desired rewards.
 

Mayhem Tokens are non-tradeable, but the items available for purchase in the Mayhem Token Vendor are tradable. Note that certain Mayhem Token Vendor items may also require special Placement Mayhem Tokens, awarded as event prizes, in order to be purchased.

 

Practice Mayhem Annihilation

There is also a Practice Annihilation mode, which is not part of the competition. This mode allows teams of up to 4 players to enter and has no skill requirement restrictions. Players can also enter without a team.

Practice Annihilation mode will allow hunters to try out different categories and hunt for Mayhem Tokens and Christmas Strongboxes at their leisure. The creatures in Practice Annihilation are Shared Loot. Practice Annihilation opens December 9, 14:00 UTC

 

Mayhem Annihilation Gameplay

  • Interact with the Julklapp inside the Annihilation event instance to begin spawning creatures and start the mission timer; the timer pauses automatically when leaving the instance.
     
  • Eliminate Merry Mayhem Creatures to accumulate as many points as possible in 15 hours.
     
  • A random number of points (0, 1, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, or 5000) is automatically awarded after defeating one of the event instance creatures.
     
  • Once your 15-hour run is complete, your score is finalized and recorded on the event leaderboard. You can then start a new run to try to improve upon your previously-recorded rank. The score from a subsequent run is only recorded if it would result in a higher leaderboard rank.
     
  • You can only have a recorded score in a single category at a time. Recording a new score with a higher leaderboard rank (regardless of category) will replace any previously-recorded score.
     
  • The top ten highest scorers (most accumulated points) in each category win prizes.

FFA Mayhem Gameplay

The Free-for-All Mayhem division allows hunters (either solo or in teams) to compete for prizes in an unrestricted, no-holds-barred single-category format. 

FFA Mayhem instances are accessed via the Santa's Little Helper NPCs in Fort Ithaca, Fort Zeus and Nymphtown on Planet Calypso.

Loot in the FFA Mayhem instances may contain FFA Mayhem Stars of different values. Your FFA Mayhem score is based on the combined value of the FFA Mayhem Stars you hand in to the Santa’s Little Helper NPC’s. 

The FFA Mayhem Star tokens are tradable, allowing participants to sell their FFA Mayhem Star tokens to the highest bidder instead of handing them in to the NPC’s.

FFA participants that want to take part in the FFA competition need to hand in their FFA stars to a Santa’s Little Helper NPC before January 22, 14:00 UTC. This will activate the FFA mission and add a Mission in your Mission Log UI. 

There are no time requirements or skill/item restrictions in the FFA Mayhem division.

Rules & Notes

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.

It is possible for participants to abandon the Annihilation mission and restart the event. In order to prevent excessive use of this feature and to protect the fairness of the event, any participant who abandons the Annihilation mission more than 3 times will be considered disqualified from the event and ineligible for prizes.

Bypassing or attempting to bypass any of the event instance entry or item restrictions will be grounds for disqualification from the event, forfeiture of any prizes, and possible sanctions imposed on one’s Entropia Universe account.

Anyone found using multiple accounts to gain an unfair advantage or to win prizes in multiple categories or divisions will forfeit all prizes and risk additional sanctions on their Entropia Universe account(s), including potential account termination.

FFA participants that want to take part in the FFA competition should hand in their FFA stars to a Santa’s Little Helper NPC. This will activate the FFA mission and add a Mission in your Mission Log UI. Once added do not abandon the FFA Merry Mayhem mission. If you abandon the mission for any reason, intentionally or accidentally, all points earned up to that point will be lost forever and will not be included in your final event score. Support cannot and will not restore points for abandoned missions, regardless of the situation. 

 

Happy Holidays and Merry Mayhem!
