The Guide to the ECC Survival Games
Well as the title suggests this will explain what the Survival Games are and some tips and tricks to help you guys win all the money and get on top of the leader board!
ECC first introduced the Survival Games in January 2013 as a whole new way to earn money. The games themselves are made up of a maximum of 24 people in a lobby, but there can be less depending on how many people vote to start the game early.
Winning the Survival Games
Many people have been frustrated and ever confused by the many different outcomes of the survival games. The truth is, no one is guaranteed to win; however, you can easily stack the odds in your favor.
The easiest, fastest, and cheapest way to do this is being able to get some loot from the chests at spawn. These chests are always stocked at the beginning but obviously everyone is going for just a few chests. Lets just look over the math for a quick minute: With an average of 18 people in a lobby and just about 6 chests at the spawn that you leaves a 1/3 chance of being of able to get a full chest. But, who ever said you need a everything from a chest? No one. The truth is that as long as you can get some type of armor or a weapon you will be better off than someone with nothing. As you begin to memorize all the arenas you may be able to remember the exact location of chests. I highly suggest running straight from spawn to any chest that you have memorized the location of so you may be able to snag everything in that chest instead of just an item or two.
Once you have hopefully gotten something from a chest and the Grace period has expired, it is full PVP to the death. The biggest tip I can give you is not to be scared as you can easily make mistakes like that. Run around, jump off cliffs basically run around the whole map because you are almost guaranteed to find someone and better yet, find more chests! If you do find someone, try your best to sneak up on them or run from behind in order to surprise them and catch them off guard. But in all reality, the only way to get better at the games is from experience and I cannot teach you experience, that is left up to you. If you are lucky or good enough to make it down to the final three survivors you will automatically be TP'ed back to spawn where you will fight the End Games.
Deathmatch starts 30 seconds after the kill that brings the game to 3 players. You will TP'ed back to spawn to fight it out to the death for the win! As a heads up, you are TP'ed back to spawn and virtually stuck in a face-down position for about 10 seconds before DeathMatch starts. You can use this time to eat and Golden Apples or any other food you have to build up your health so you are as strong as possible for the last PvP match! Once one of the three dies, the last two will again be TP'ed back to spawn with the face-down position and the 10 second delay to finally duel it out for the win! Many people have different strategies as how to win and survive!
Play in SG gets rewarded in two ways, EcoDollars and Leaderboard Points!
While the most money in SG is awarded from winning the game, any player can win a $300 EcoDollar Instant Kill Bonus just for achieving a kill on any other player at any time!
For winning the game, in addition any Instant Kill Bonus, at the end of the match the winner will receive $500 ECD for every player that was in the game as well as an extra $300 ECD for every kill they scored in the game!
If you really want to see how you stack up against other competition, go here to see the full ECC Survival Games leaderboards! If you're curious how to earn more points and move up the leader boards, here is a break down of the points:
- 10 points per kill
- 25 points per win
- 5 points for everyone who dies before you
Extra points from Killstreaks!:
- DoubleKill = 10 additional points
- MultiKill (3 kills) = 20 additional points
- UltraKill (4 kills) = 40 additional points
- UnbelieveableKill (5 kills) = 80 additional points
- Legendary (6 kills) = 160 additional points!
Additional kills on the killstreak earn you double what you last earned! Meaning your 7th kill would earn 320 points, your 8th would earn 640, and a 9th kill would earn an insane 1280 points!
The SG leaderboard resets on June 1st of every year! 30 days prior to the reset a warning will be given for anyone wishing to complete last minute grinding!
There are a few medals available to show off SG Skill!
Whenever the leaderboard is reset, the top 50 players will earn a service medal for that year! These medals will change each year, so there will be a new one to earn each year! Once a year has passed, that year's medal will never be awarded again, so you'll need to grind it out yearly to earn every possible medal!
Medals are awarded for players with the following amount of points on the leaderboard:
- Iron: 50,000 Points
- Gold: 100,000 Points
- Diamond 150,000 Points
You can apply for these medals by reading the information available here.
Remember that points don't carry over after resets so you'll have to earn all the points you need within a year.
