Olympic Festivities Begin

Post by Coops » Sat Feb 03, 2018 6:29 pm

Core Exiles Winter Olympic Festivities 2018

The Winter Olympics start on the 9th and as per usual we have been hammering away in the depths to bring you some Olympic fun this year. We may even have gone a little over board but hey, it’s all for good fun. This year we are wrapping together the Olympic & Paralympic Games, giving you twice as long to collect the Flags and Beacons!

We have two primary elements as we did during the last few Olympics. These will be the Collection of Olympic Flags Sets and also the extra collection and hand-ins of Olympic Beacons. We have revamped the prizes this year and are also attaching a Top 10 prize to the beacon hand in.

You will begin to see (After 06.00 AM on the 9th) two new forms of Misc Loot. These will be an Olympic Beacons and 34 Olympic Flags. The flags represent the countries YOU nominated in previous years.

Olympic Beacons
The beacons will be seeded this week in preparation for the games and come the morning of the 9th we will activate these beacons. This means they will begin to appear in loot. Your task is to collect them. Each one is worth 1,000 XP and 5,000! Credits when handed in at an Olympic Centre. (See below).

Handing in the Beacons is simple but you will need to decide which Team / Country to support when handing them in.

Note: You can only hand in one at a time and the beacons will SELF TERMINATE when the hand in completes making them useless to hoard. They are for helping your country win and collecting a XP and credits whilst doing it, during the Olympic & Paralympic Games.

Beacon Prize:
This year we will also be awarding prizes to the Top 20 captains that deposit beacons.

The top 10 will all receive a £10.00 Gift Certificate to spend in the CE Store. Plus a 10K Fuek Ticket and 3 Months PA
The next 10 will receive a 10K Fuel Ticket and 2 Months PA

CE Olympic Flags – Collection
The Flags are worth 10 Festive Points each and can be traded in at the Festive center if you so wish. They CAN also be traded should you wish. This is because there is a special prize for collecting an entire set of 34.

You can hand in an ‘entire collection’ (one of Each Flag) at the Olympic Centers. Simply click the Check Flag button and the staff will check you have the correct Flags. If correct the Flags will be removed from your store and you will be awarded the following Prize.

1 X PyeongChang Device (new Pod)
500 Festive Points
500 Barter Points
5,000 Fuel Ticket


Please note: You may only hand in ONE full set of Flags for the rewards. After that the Check Flag option will reject any further tries.

CE PyeongChang Olympic Dates

START
The CE Winter Olympics will Begin at 06:00 AM on the 9th when the Beacons will activate for loot and you will begin finding CE Olympic Flags.

ENDS
This year I'm rolling the Olympic AND Paralympics together, after all you have to collect 34 unique flags, that's could take some time and this gives you much longer to complete that challenge. So the Olympic Games for CE will END on the 18th March @ 4.00PM Game Time.

Beacons
Olympic Beacons will self-terminate and disappear from your Inventories at 4.01 PM on the 18th March

Flag Set Hand Ends
The Olympic Offices will remain open until 4.00 PM on the 20th of March for any last minute Flag set hand ins. Giving you an Extra 48 Hours to complete a set and hand it in past the Olympic Games ending on CE.

The fact that I'm dragging a body behind me should be irrelevant!

Well we are a few days in now and so far the scores for the Top 10 Beacons drops against the countries we have flags for is thus :

United States of America - 100
Vatican-City - 55
Vanuatu - 44
China - 36
Poland - 29
United Kingdom - 25
Canada - 20
New Zealand - 19
Netherlands - 12
Italy - 12


Please note the flags and countries chosen for the flags were drawn a number of years ago by PLAYERS in a forum post that ran for quite some time. Once this Olympics is over I'm happy to run another one should we wish to reshuffle, add, remove countries and flags.

There are over 200 Olympic committee countries so we cant have them all - I think I'd be lynched from the nearest Station promenade if I suggested you collect 200 unique flags :)

Keep dropping the beacons and remember we are tracking whos dropping what for the competitions, and don't forget to stash away a full set of flags for the Olympic Pod over at the Olympic centres.

Also, I'm running several competitions with more to come over in the Competiton section fo the forums so go check them out!
