Get your fur coats on over your armor and head over to X-Mas land between December 24th(18:00) - 26th(23:59) (GMT+1)! The snowball fight is back!

Go to X-Mas land by asking "Santa's Little Elf" to send you to the "North Pole". Once there, you can find piles of snow to pick up snowballs. Place them on your hotbar and target another player to throw. The players with the most points will be listed under the events section of the Uthgard Herald. Earn fame and glory!

You will need the Uthgard Christmas zone to participate if you do not already have it installed.


General:
Like Tajendi, this event will take place in a custom zone. You'll be facing other players in a good old snowball fight.

Details:
- The event will be a PvP event. No realms, no groups, no mercy!
- The zone will be accessible from [SEE BELOW] using the PortalNPCs
- In the zone you will have to look for snowballs to throw at your opponents. You can grab snowballs by rightclicking on the snow hills (marked by red conned npcs).
- For each 'kill' you'll receive scores.
- When releasing after being killed, you will appear somewhere in the zone
- You will need Catacombs or higher; I'm afraid ToA won't work either this time; don't know why.
- Important: To get out of the X-mas zone, use /returnhome
- In order to keep the balance between players there will be several restrictions:
* You cannot use spells/styles/weapons.
* When you're hit you'll not loose a fixed amount but a certain percentage of HP.

- You can heal yourself at warm places with fire when you are out of combat
This will ensure that even a level 1 can take on a level 50 without being totally disadvantaged.


Event times
Kills are only counted between these dates:

24.12.2011 18:00
26.12.2011 23:59


You can still enter the zone for fun on other times.

The one Thing about this Event: As usual its exact the time where most ppl cant play, or just few hours. Maybe it would be better to place it somewhere between Christmass and New Year. But anyway, better as nothing ;) Thx for your work ;)

Having the stack of hardened snowballs (or whatever they are called) weigh 38# wasn't a very good idea. I waited in the zone for 30 minutes for the event to start only to be heavily ENC with my Luri and could hardly move... making me a sitting duck for the other player who had the same strategy as I did.

This will be the last GM event I attend - while the thought is appreciated, you guys need to think things through more or do more testing prior to implementation.

call me qq-er too, allying is dumb and do they really deserve a reward for allying ? Allying defeats the purpose of the FFA snowball game. i noticed as i was being followed by this duo and they managed to catch up with the speed they had. Even as they shot snowballs at me, they still caught up to me, is that honestly fair?

Other names were:
Seiichi
Shanoa

Thank you for destroying the game and making the x-mas zone dead.

It should not be possible to cast any spells or use any abilities in the zone.

there is a bug with the hastener speed, if you deal dmg to other ppl you dont loose it

so you cant run away from the 2-3ppl hib grp, they have infinite speed

may be it would be better to delete the hastener und delete all buffs/charges/timers when enter zone



anyway the event can ends, becasue of grping / bug using hibs :wall:

Its only you in this area davidoof, if nobody wanna play with you, maybe you start think about it xD even your own realm do not gonna join you. Maybe your spamm in all chats to join you was a bit annoying ^^....
At all a nice event, i would prefere if it starts on 26th to 28th, not during the days where ppl are forced to have rl xD

The event is placed at these hours to give people who do not have holidays etc a thing to do as there is less people to raid, rvr etc with.
