The contribution has been fulfilled and instantly the discussion with the Banished started. It was a tough one as they were discussing about labor law and asking for some union representatives to monitor their working conditions while doing the summoning. But I think we managed to get the best result for you as we could agree on a nice change with them.

We can now announce the following:

Event Start: Thursday, May 6th at noon (Berlin time) which is in about 23h from now
Event End: Monday, May 10th at noon (Berlin time)

Explanation:
We discussed about the starting and end day of the event and decided to make a change to the duration. From now on (including the event tomorrow), the event will last for 4 days, if it starts on a monday, tuesday, wednesday or thursday. If it starts on a friday, saturday or sunday it will last for 3 days.

We decided to extend the duration for one day if it starts during the week, as most people are working and dont have that much time to play.

There will be the same event only changes like last time:
- cc duration above 10s is halved before det / resists, e. g. 1min13s becomes 10 + 63/2 = 41s on which resists and det etc. apply
- resist buffs have no effect
- resist debuffs have no effect other than rupting

PLUS:
As the Level 49-50 bracket was really crowded (more than 500 players in it), we will put in an additional bracket which will start at 5L0.

As written in the post before the main reason to put in the rr5 bracket was to split up the population in the last brackets and also to separate casual & hardcore gamers as the hardcore 24/7 players would very fast leave the 49-50 bracket and could find mindlike players in the 5L bracket. But the result wasnt as expected, so we are going to try somehing new.

- the rr5 bracket will be removed
- auto groups are now all or nothing, you can no longer invite some people and have the rest filled up
- the 49-50 bracket is now split between auto groups and normal groups / player with auto grouping disabled

Once again the contribution has been filled and the event is going to start very soon:

Event Start: Thursday, June 24th at noon (Berlin time) which is in about 16h from now
Event End: Monday, June 28th at noon (Berlin time)


This will be the event only changes (same as before):
- cc duration above 10s is halved before det / resists, e. g. 1min13s becomes 10 + 63/2 = 41s on which resists and det etc. apply
- resist buffs have no effect
- resist debuffs have no effect other than rupting
- there will be only one Level 49-50 bracket
- any groupsize will be able to fill up via auto group

Please note the following:
We are currently discussing with the Banished about the future of the event. Until we come to a solution, they refuse to take any further contribution and thats why the Contribution NPCs have not been reset yet.
