    The Entropia Battle Simulator has been released. Info from MindArk:


    Train your Combat Skills — Defend Entropia Universe!

    The Entropia Universe Battle Simulator is a time-trial assault course. Exterminate all robot enemies and finish as fast as you can!


    Equal Playing Field

    Battle Simulator runs are performed using a premade avatar with standardized skills, weapons and armor. Ammo consumption and deterioration are disabled. Additionally, all buffs are paused while inside the Battle Simulator instance.


    How to Get Started

    The Battle Simulator can be accessed anywhere in Entropia Universe:
    1. Click the ‘Event List’ action from the Action Library.
    2. Select ‘Global Instances’ from the Event Areas listing on the left side.
    3. Double-click ‘Battle Simulator’ in the central window, then click the ‘Register’ button and ‘Confirm’ to authorize the entrance fee.

    Win Prizes!
    Loot Crate for Completion

    Completing the Battle Simulator course gives access to a special loot crate. Unclaimed loot from other participants’ uncompleted runs may also increase the total value of the loot crate.

    Completion times will be entered into the Battle Simulator weekly leaderboard, where participants compete for additional rewards (see the “Leaderboard” section below).

    Be on the lookout for the occasional message at the start of each run announcing extra bonus loot for completing the instance!


    Leaderboard

    Viewing the Leaderboard


    You can view the current leaderboard by pressing the ‘Scores’ button opposite the ‘Register’ button in the Event List interface (see above).

    Checking Times on the Leaderboard

    Only each participant’s best time is recorded on the leaderboard. To view a participant’s time, hover over the participant’s name or picture in the leaderboard.

    Prize Pool

    A portion of each Battle Simulator entry fee is added to the leaderboard prize pool; the current value of the prize pool can be viewed on the leaderboard display. Prizes are distributed using a dynamic payout structure: the more runs attempted, the more positions that will receive a prize and the larger the prize values. At the end of the week (midnight on Sundays, UTC) leaderboard prizes are delivered to the planet storage of each winner’s current avatar location, along with a confirmation message sent via the Message Center.

    A symbol directly under a participant’s ranking number indicates that the participant will receive a prize for their current leaderboard position. Hover over the symbol to see the current prize value.

    ‘Time until reward’ indicates the time remaining until leaderboard prizes are awarded. Note that the Battle Simulator will close one hour before this time. Participants currently in the Battle Simulator after closing will be permitted to finish their run.


    Notes
    • Planet Partner revenue sharing is determined by the location of a participant’s avatar when entering the Battle Simulator instance.
    • In cases where a Battle Simulator run is interrupted due to a technical issue or server disruption, the entrance fee will be refunded automatically.

    • Dislike Dislike x 1
    • It is possible to fall and become stuck in some areas of the Battle Simulator instance, stick to the centre path and bridges.
    • Temporary garments from the Battle Simulator avatar are sometimes still rendered after exiting the instance (relog to fix).
    • Avatars will become stuck when entering the Battle Simulator while the crafting interface is active.
    • After destroying the turret at beginning of third zone of the Battle Simulator, a red dot may remain visible on radar. It still counts as destroyed and the zone can be completed.
    Seriously ? ;p

    • After leaving the Battle Simulator instance buffs from rings and armors will not automatically reapply causing players to be forced to re-equip rings and armor for the buff to apply.

    McCormmick if it as bad as you say I'm tempted to suggest we offer our "skilled in breaking things" service to them on the condition that they give us PEDs up front. I'm not paying to be able to submit support tickets.

    Does this mean they will let us test it without paying so long as we find bugs? :D

  8. There are already ppl who enjoy it and "battle" for the so called jackpot.

    For me its more about priorities. Releasing a bugged prototype of something noone asked for...at times so much other stuff is needed...or was already promised a dozen times before...seriously...just to name Space or CLD plots...harvesting...battle octagons...compet deed payouts...yet it works every fooking time...kudos to MA for that. *lulz* ;'D

    A simple Quake clone in prototype state from 2001, that people have to pay for, in order to experience bugs...really...if thats what Entropia Universe MMORPG fans were waiting for...then I dont know.

    battle simulator promises.
