Planet Calypso News: Happy Halloween!

  1. The Planet Calypso team wishes you a Happy Halloween!

    The upcoming partner release scheduled for next Tuesday brings with it a fun and exciting Halloween Mayhem event in a newly designed Halloween instance.

    Full details about the event can be found at the following URL: Halloween Mayhem

    From that website:
    Halloween Mayhem 2013!
    Get ready for the most terrifying event in Planet Calypso history!
    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!

    I really don't like to complain but I think I have to...

    I thought the direction is to bring back the frontier look and feel of the Colonist MMO!? How can that be done with dungeons, magic, mutants, events like this, ...? Is it that hard to create content without further ruining the little that is left of what should be a consistent setting? Is there any direction at all?

    But let's be constructive: I herewith apply for the job of the Creative Director of Planet Calypso and I'm up for working for free for half a year.

    Yeh I have to admit it did seem more suited to Rocktropia... ah well. Lots of MMO's do it so I guess the calypso company (I really can't remember who they are now) can too.
  7. Where are this years season gifts ??? anybody.
    Easter , Christmas , Halloween , valentines

  10. Ok, it does not have seem to have started yet (?)...I got thrown out while killing zombie dogs and zombie mutants...which are Shinkibas and Maffoids...way to go MindArk...

    So you telling me I better start joining instances at 00:00 ? Presenting me Shinkibas as zombie Dogs and Maffoids as Zombies ? Luring me in as I can clearly SEE people globaling on these instances already....kicking me out because of... I have no idea ?

    Just dont enable instances early maybe ? So I wont get lured in, hoping to SEE some pumpkins already ? Will these 10 minutes be taken away from my 40 hours (which you cant check anyway) ?

    I play less and less and less and just because I dont read the fineprint every time (which seems to be non existant ...again)....I fail having there any possibility to design a fucking halloween event even worse ?

    I think the real start time for the event was at 00:00 tonight (the 1st hour of the 7th of Nov), and since it is 9:09pm my time right now, I would say that the event has been live for about an hour or so.

    I'll catch up with you in the morning Narfi, and will broadcast your live playing in the event so that those not playing can get a bird's eye view of what's going on, and since I have you on Skype and you'll be busy in the game (event), I'll do my best to answer any questions that there might be in chat, and anything else you might need me to do while you slay creatures for your pumpkins.

    See you then. :thumbsup:
