Yesterday around 10:00 EUT a few brave ROCKtropians started the new Zombie wave event at the King Kong Memorial site at the Empire State Building on ROCKtropia. At that time noone did know which crazy course the event would take. Wave after wave they fought through Zombies and more people joined the battle. In the afternoon wave number 50 was reached, right, fifty. NEVERDIE himself made his appearance at the site and stayed there for most of remaining event. He gave out the info that there would be 80 waves of Zombies and in #81 the boss mob would spawn: Zombie Kong. Almost 30 wave still/only left to go? Some were motivated, some were disillusioned. Nevertheless one wave of Zombie was slaughtered after the other, #60 and #70 left behind and #80 approaching. The tension was rising. After finally finishing wave #80 the everyone was running towards the center of event area to meet Zombie Kong - unlike before in the regular waves that have been fought through from one edge to the other. And they were fooled. Instead of finally facing Zombie Kong they found themselves drowned in another wave of fierce Zombies, with little chance to resist, spread and surrounded by hundreds of them. The frustration was big, the confusion too, and NEVERDIE didn't have any clue either. Some kept fighting, some left. NEVERDIE came up with the prospect that Zombie Kong might spawn in wave #102 but that would mean almost 10# more hours of hard grinding. ND compensated the brave fighters with armor parts and ammo for their long and costly struggle that didn't yield the promised result. But the following struggle was even harder. A few brave women and men accepted the challenge and decided to fight up to wave #102. NEVERDIE distributed ammo to support the adventure. And they where fighting through night and they where fighting through the morning, some took short naps in shifts, others didn't sleep at all, for 20 or 30 hours or even more. Wave 85, wave 90, wave 95, .... Then they were fooled for the second time: wave 100 started with the message: KING KONG IS BACK... FROM THE DEAD! And then of course he spawned. Not in wave #80 or wave #81, not in #102, but in wave #100. It was a fierce battle. The health bar worth 450,000 points decreased very slowly but in the end he fell, after about 35 minutes. Here's the video (apologies for the black parts, that were CTDs, one can't live without...): > What else? The loot, oh, the loot... not worth mentioning. 1166 PED and as it seems nothing special but a King Kong movie poster. And that after numerous people grinding for a total on 26-27 hours. Someone wants to do the math? 450,000 HP to kill vs 1166 PED loot? Should such loot be allowed to happen for a rare boss mob with 450k HP that require probably ~20k strong Zombies to be killed in advance just to spawn at all? It was announced as "Mega Loot Mob"... Given the course of this event and the rather bitter end do you think it will ever be spawned again under the same conditions?
