Planet Calypso

Merry Mayhem hunting contest to kick off on Boxing Day.



Göteborg, Sweden - December 17, 2010 /GameBlast/ - First Planet Company, developer and publisher of Planet Calypso, the oldest planet in the Massively Multiplayer Online Game Entropia Universe, announced today announced today that it is hosting its extremely popular Merry Mayhem hunting contest again for all the naughty and nice, boys and girls of Planet Calypso.

The Merry Mayhem hunting contest awards prizes to those with the most kill-points over a total of no more than 30 hours.  (Even gamers need time to open presents, see their families and drink Eggnog). The event starts on December 26th 00:00 UTC and lasts until December 30th 23:59 UTC, with the winners being announced on January 8th, including the top 200 list for all categories with points and times.  The competition will have four separate categories. Category qualification will be based upon the highest of certain Professional Standings, and the category determines what creatures you will have to hunt.  For full rules please go to:

This year's Merry Mayhem will differ from last year on two important points:  Kill points are awarded for inflicting the most damage on a killed creature. You don't have to shoot the killing shot, but you have to inflict more damage than anyone else shooting (or maiming or slicing) the creature.  We will use the mission system to track Merry Mayhem. The Mayhem Mission is available from the contact Carl Tucker in Port Atlantis. This mission will track your kill points and category. You can get the mission from Dec 21st, but kills will not register before Dec 26th.

So gear up and prepare to share with the mobs of Planet Calypso!
