    Changes based on Player Feedback
    - Based on the feedback that the event mechanic could be updated, we implemented an additional Bonus Map gate at the end of Plutus fight. The chance that this gate spawns can be increased by killing Aura Dun Jig NPC.
    - We got the feedback that Turret NPCs that gives boosts are not worth it to kill and therefore, we added more significant boosts per NPC and the cap for boosts is increased.
    - N.O.V.A. have been made available in Battle Pass Keys​

    General information
    During the Gauntlet of Plutus event, a special Galaxy Gate “Gauntlet of Plutus” appears on the x-8 maps which should be completed as fast as possible by the players.

    Like last time, we will again have an Easy Gauntlet of Plutus Galaxy Gate and a normal Gauntlet of Plutus Galaxy Gate.

    Some general details about the Galaxy Gate:
    - The Gauntlet of Plutus can be completed once per day and the entry is free
    - It resets after the daily server restart
    - It cannot be entered anymore 5 minutes before the daily restart takes place
    - If a player is still inside the Galaxy Gate during the restart, they will be removed back to their x-8 map and their progress inside the gate will be lost. In the Easy GoP GG, the players will be removed to the x-1 map (for players above level 12, they will be sent back to X-8 maps).
    - Upon reset the galaxy gate is put back to wave 1 and opened again
    - Every player has 5 lives to attempt the Galaxy Gate
    o Time recorded will be from the time of entering the Gauntlet of Plutus until the time Plutus is defeated.
    o Time spent outside the Gauntlet of Plutus after dying will be included
    o If you die in the boss map, the whole boss map will reset​
    - In the Easy Gate, jumping to the next map gives the usual 15 seconds cooldown
    - In the Normal Gate, jumping to the next map has a reduced cooldown of 1 second
    - When a player entered either the Easy or the Normal GoP GG, the entry into the other gate is not allowed anymore during the current day.​

    Enter the “Gauntlet of Plutus” Galaxy Gate and fight your way through different waves of NPCs. The Gate offers different waves and maps on a random base. Only the final wave – the big boss Plutus – will be the same each time.

    The event ranking will be created according to the speed of completing the Gauntlet of Plutus Galaxy Gate. The event rewards will be given out according to the final scoring of the players which can be seen in the event window during the event and in the Hall of Fame, Event rankings section after the event is finished. Every players’ Top 5 times of doing the Normal GoP GG will be recorded.

    IMPORTANT: These rewards boxes aren’t dropping in general but only when killing NPCs in certain waves!

    New: Bonus Map “Plutus’ Trove of Riches”
    There’s a new bonus map introduced with this event, it’s called “Plutus’ Trove of Riches” for both, Normal and Easy Gates.

    Upon completion of the Plutus battle, there is a chance that a gate to the new Bonus Map will spawn. This Bonus Map is similar to the one in Gauntlet of Plutus where you need to fight against multiple waves of NPCs. Killing all NPCs in this Bonus Map grants you with a reward package that will be booked at the end of the last wave.

    If you die in the Bonus Map or if you leave it, you cannot enter Gauntlet of Plutus until the GG reset time.

    IMPORTANT: The general Ranking stops as soon as Plutus is defeated. This means the time spent in bonus map is NOT taken into consideration for ranking!

    Bonus Map Rewards
    The Reward package contains the chance to get a lot of valuable items, e.g. Hyperplasmoid LF-4, Paritydrill LF-4, Magmadrill LF-4, DMG-XHD01, HP-XHD01, SHD-XHD01, SPC-XHD01, Evocation Chip, Diametion, SG3N-PX01, LF-PX01 or Permit.

    IMPORTANT: Box doubler boosters aren’t active for these rewards!

    Event NPCs
    There are some event NPCs as well as existing NPCs that are appearing in the Gauntlet of Plutus.

    EASY Gauntlet of Plutus GG

    The mechanic of the Easy GoP GG is the same as the normal one, only the difficulty of the NPCs as well as the rewards are adapted and much lower. The rewards for doing this Easy GoP GG are similar to the ones of the Normal GoP GG but they are reduced because the GG is way easier than the normal one.

    You can enter the Easy GoP GG from the x-1 map and you are transferred back to that map when you leave the GG.

    Only in certain waves, the NPCs will drop reward boxes with the chance to get the XU01 ship modules as well as valuable laser and rocket ammunition.

    Please note that in the Easy GoP GG, Plutus won’t drop an additional reward package (like in the Normal GoP GG).

    Reward Package 1 (see below)

    The Reward package 1 contains the chance to get a lot of valuable items, e.g. LF4 lasers, Laser ammunition, Rockets, Mines, as well as the chance to get a Cyborg, Mimesis or Hammerclaw Nobilis ship design. Additionally: There’s a very low chance to hit the jackpot of 5 Mio. Uridium!

    The NPCs will occasionally drop reward boxes with valuable items. Please take note that only in certain waves the NPCs will drop reward boxes with the chance to get the XU01 ship modules as well as valuable laser ammunition, resources and techs.

    Boss Fight against Plutus
    The aim of the player is to defeat the boss Plutus which is protected by four turrets that are placed at each end of an invincibility shield around him. The NPCs will spawn around the turret once the turret is shot at. They fly away from you and you need to hunt them! If you kill these NPCs, you’ll get temporary damage or speed buffs! They renew every time a new corresponding buff is received).

    The buffs have been rebalanced and Kodkod now becomes aggressive. Alongside Cote Lo and Kodkod, one Aura Dun Jig spawns per turret and only if you kill it, you’ll get a boosted chance that the gate to the Bonus Map Spawns. Similar to the Cote Lo, Aura Dun Jig will run away from players.

    Important: You can also ignore the Aura Dun Jig entirely and you still have a chance that the gate to the Bonus Map spaws. But this chance is only boosted if you kill Aura Dun Jig!

    Once all turrets are destroyed, the next phase of the fight begins: the Boss Fight against Plutus! He doesn’t have an invincibility shield anymore and prepares a large scale attack that you’ll need to take cover from! Fight him down until he is defeated!

    New Ship Design
    There will be 1 new ship design called “Nobilis” coming together with the event:
    - Nobilis Solace Plus (available via Battle Pass Key exchange)​

    New P.E.T. Design
    There will be 1 new P.E.T. design called “Nobilis” coming together with the event:
    - Nobilis Orcus P.E.T. (available as a Ranking reward)​

    Ranking Rewards

The players can see their score during the event in the Gauntlet of Plutus window. The final scoring will be displayed after the event end and it can be found in the Hall of Fame, Event Ranking section.
    The rewards will be given out based on the user scores at the end of the event.
