RIO 2016 Olympic Games
Core Exiles Olympic Festivities 2016
The Rio 2016 Summer Olympics starts on the 5th 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 10.00 AM on the 5th) two new forms of Loot. These will be an Olympic Beacons and 34 Olympic Flags. The flags represent the countries YOU nominated in previous years.
The beacons will be seeded this week in preparation for the games and come the morning of the 5th 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.
This year we will also be awarding prizes to the Top 10 captains that deposit beacons.
The top 10 will all receive a £20.00 Gift Certificate to spend in the CE Store.
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 RIO Device (new Pod)
500 Festive Points
500 Barter Points
5,000 Fuel Ticket
1 X Emporium License
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 RIO Olympic Dates
The CE RIO Olympics will Begin at 10:00 AM Friday the 5th when the Beacons will activate for loot and you will begin finding CE Olympic Flags.
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 19th September @ 4.00PM Game Time.
Olympic Beacons will self-terminate and disappear from your Inventories at 4.01 PM on the 19th Of September
Flag Set Hand Ends
The Olympic Offices will remain open until 4.00 PM on the 20th of September for any last minute Flag set hand ins. Giving you an Extra 24 Hours to complete a set and hand it in past the Olympic Games ending on CE.
