The battle raged on for 12 hours, and except for bio breaks and grabbing food and much needed caffeine on the fly, it was a non-stop rage against the red machine. At one point, Anhithe responded to someone asking where to go, and he said ... "out into the crater and kill anything fat and red." Needless to say, the fat 'n' red were deflated, and left in the field smoldering in their own Yog guts (I shouldn't write when I'm sleep deprived), in disbelief that in their distorted perception of grandeur, they were never a match to really take us to task. We've grown a few over the past almost 2 years, and I would say that it's only the lag that makes things look like their dragging ... just sayin' I already told you I shouldn't write when I'm sleep deprived. Based on organizing the last two 12 hour global prize events for August and September, I decided to get more streamlined in how I did things. So ... before the event, I created myself a table of what the global prizes were going to be, including a column where I could add the prize winners. After the event, I filled in all of the added information I wrote down during the event and updated the table. I then got more efficient and saved the table as a PDF file that could be added to this results thread to save time and space. RESULTS Following is the PDF file with global prize winners, who donated items at the event, the special donated prizes, the Pumpkin creature candy kill shot winners, and the Monria apartment winner. Just as an FYI ... there is no solicitation or expectation that anyone donate prizes to our events. Those who have donated were generous in the spirit of the events, and we greatly appreciate that generosity Right click the following link and open in a new tab: DME's 12 Hr Global Prize Giveaway / Items List and Winners We had a lot of players join us throughout the course of the event, and as such, we learned some things that we immediately wrote down to look into. We already knew that the level 24 Broodmother was not set up for the proper global threshold, and that is already being looked into. Unfortunately, we were unable to get it fixed prior to this event. We also know that the lighting is borked at the Monria Hub, as well as along the wall by the TP and Wang's Pet Stable in the West Crater and we are getting that sorted as well. I think one of the more critical things to address is our mob spawn increases. Up until now, the increased mob spawns during events worked fine, but this event was like a stress test, and you all helped us realize that more needs to be done now so that the increased spawn and re-spawn is sufficient. Just as in the August and September 12 hr global prize giveaway event, the globals started poppin' right away, and they never really stopped. It was a challenge keeping up with them, but it was fun seeing who the prize winner was going to be after posting a link to the prize and then calling out for the next global to win. Ant extracted all of the global/hof data from Entropia Life and compiled a spread sheet, including a far right column that lists all the players who globaled and how many globals they each got. As a side-note ... all globals within the 12 hrs were counted, and not just globals where players won a prize, but team globals were not eligible for prizes. This event is a solo hunting event only. Right click and open in a new tab: Yogs Declare War / Global/HoF Results THANK YOUS We thank all of you who joined us on Saturday for this event, and appreciate your participation in our (now more exposed) craziness. We have an incredible community, which I think is always witnessed in the Monria chat channel, but we had so many new people experiencing Monria this time that it made it even more enjoyable. I got so much great feedback in PMs, even though I asked to not PM me during the event if at all possible because I have to truly focus and manage everything that is going on, but those kinds of PMs are heart warming, and I think tells us that we are doing something right, so thank you very much. I am incredibly grateful that I get to do what I do in this unique virtual universe, and work with someone who has been a friend for many years, a fantastic partner in our vision for Monria, and someone I have the deepest respect and love for ... he hates when I get mushy, so I'm doing it on purpose. Thank you Ant for your guidance, and for your enormous support that keeps my ass (almost) out of trouble. Thank you again to my Media partner in crime, Anny, who has now earned herself a new hat based on her involvement and support with these events ... Assistant Event Planner. She's a major contributor to many things Monria, not just Media-related, and you will discover that as we evolve. If she says something to you and you don't understand it, there's a good chance she's channeling Cthulhu again ... beware. FUTURE DME 12 HR GLOBAL PRIZE GIVEAWAY EVENTS My plan is to hold one of these events in the middle of each month as long as they don't interfere with our main events that are mostly on hold right now while we complete our reconstruction. Apparently, the Yogs don't care how much they embarrass themselves, and as such, will continue to be stupid in their attempt to take us to task with their bloated egos and bellies, and come up with ridiculous reasons to start something. They are tunnel burrowers and delve into dredging and ransacking, never scrubbing a mission, but I think the Cultists have a hand in this, which is why we should tread a bit cautiously and not be too complacent or over confident in handing the Yogs their asses now and then ... those are bloated too, just not with the right stuff. There's definitely something going on here, and eventually, we will get to the bottom of it. Next event of this kind will most likely be on Saturday, Nov 11th. In the meantime, I'm working on our Halloween event which will be on Saturday, October 28th. HAVE FUN AND ALWAYS ... " Expect the Unexpected "
