Running over five days between Christmas and New Year’s, Merry Mayhem is among the most exciting and popular events in all of Entropia Universe. So grab your best gear and join in the Mayhem!

    Competition Structure Registration - The mission system will be used to track the Merry Mayhem event. The Mayhem mission is available from the NPC Carl Tucker, located in Port Atlantis. This mission will track kill points and each participant’s category. The mission will be available starting on Dec. 21, but event kills will not register before Dec. 26.

    Don’t forget to get the mission!Participants can register for the Mayhem mission up until the 29th Dec 18:00 UTC.

    Do not abandon the mission! If a participant abandons the Mayhem mission, all event points accumulated up to that time will be forfeited. Participants can then receive the mission a new, and restart the event with zero event points.

    Categories- Merry Mayhem offers four categories to accommodate participants of varying profession levels. Category qualification will be based upon a participant's highest Professional Standing from the following qualification list:


    • BLP Sniper (Hit)
    • BLP Pistoleer (Hit)
    • Laser Sniper (Hit)
    • Laser Pistoleer (Hit)
    • Swordsman (Hit)
    • Knife Fighter (Hit)
    • Brawler (Hit)

    Each participant's highest professional standing from the qualification list will determine which of the following event categories the participant will compete within:


    • Category 1: Highest Professional Standing 0-24
    • Category 2: Highest Professional standing 25-49
    • Category 3: Highest Professional standing 50-69
    • Category 4: Highest Professional Standing 70 or higher

    Participants will initially be sorted into one of these four categories upon registration for the Mayhem mission. The final category qualification will happen when the participant first kills an event mob once the event starts on Dec. 26.

    If a participant’s highest professional standing increases after accepting the Mayhem mission (but before the event start time) and would place the participant into a higher category, the participant will compete in the higher category for the Mayhem event.

    Participants will remain in the category for which they qualified at the start of the event on Dec. 26, even if skill gains result in promotion to a higher professional standing.

    The Mayhem creatures assigned to each category are:


    • Category 1: Daikiba
    • Category 2: Feffoid
    • Category 3: Neconu
    • Category 4: Rextelum

    Draggers

    Killin a mob that someone dragged (or tagged) for someone else is not unsportsmen at all, right?

    Considering that the tagger is not the intended killer, then the mob is then open game for all, if the tagger is the inteded killer then the mob is "his" to kill,,,, right?

    Conclusion: If I shoot at a mob, that a mob dragger has tagged (but does not plan on killin) then I am wellll within my rights, right?

    First, there is a difference in dragging or tagging.

    When you tag, you first to damage on it, and usually you don't tag more than you intend to kill within a reasonable time.

    When it comes to dragging, some people clears the entire radar with mobs and then go over the radar with hundreds of them. I can't imagine someone who gather mobs with a vehicle thinks "I want *that* mob, and I want *that* mob" but rather, ""I want to move all mobs I can see".
    Also there is a sub-division of draggers, who explicitly drag their mobs on purpose onto other players to "wipe them out".

    Going over the entire spawn with a vehicle and gather mobs for one team makes it harder for smaller teams and individual hunters who doesn't have the resources to do that big-scale gathering who then have to spend more time running around to find mobs for themselves.
