We started the Sweating Support Initiative with a monthly “SWEAT a THON” on OLA 01. Sweating Traeskerons with up to 100 players at the same time, and purchasing 2k vibrant sweat at a price of 5 PEDs total. This happened around 2013, and the idea of a steady sweating event was born.
We established a sweat circle with heal support, and scheduled a daily event with the purchase of 10x1k sweat from players with an agility level of 40 or less.
The sweat price we pay is 2.5 PEDs/k, and we are proud to say, that we have never sold any sweat.
The pile is several 10 million bottles big now…
As our boss Blastoise says, “Go BIG or go home”.
Why are we doing this?
That what is good for the game can only be good for BIG as well. So we share parts of the income from the land areas and programs, back to the players that makes the game come alive.
Success for more than 7 years now speaks for itself.
As of April 2020, SSI is being held on Calypso, Arkadia, and Next Island. And with every day, the pile grows with up to 30.000 bottles
The paid PEDs are flowing straight into the PED card of young players.
This will help them find their own way, meet friends and bring freshness to the community.
There are two main jobs that keep SSI running, and we are always looking for good reliable people to fill the daily need to make them happen.
The jobs are 1 Host and 1 or 2 Healers, on 3 planets.
As a Host of an SSI you are responsible that the event runs smoothly. Making sure that the sweaters are joining the circle, and talking to those that are standing too far away, since the mob can jump out and create a mess.
You need to, if necessary, organize which healer heals which circle. And you need to explain the SSI rules and decide who gets to sell on that particular day. The maximum is 10 sellers, and the selection is mostly done by asking a question in local chat and selecting the first 10 correct answers. You then check their agility level and buy their sweat.
All overall you need to handle the course of the event.
Finally, you have to compensate for the healer for their costs. Edit an online document about your total costs of the day, so we can refill your PED stack and hand you the spent PEDs for buying the sweat, compensating the healer’s cost and add your pay.
There is a pay per event for this Job.
