PostPosted: Wed Nov 27, 2019 8:50 am    Post subject: Holiday Festivities

Beginning at: Fri Nov 26 05:00:00 2021
Ending at: Wed Jan 5 05:00:00 2022

The air is getting colder and the competition is getting hotter! Compete
against opponents of all ages and abilities to prove yourself Supreme Overlord
of the Festivities!

Planned events include:
- Race up the back of a giant dragon skeleton to find its eye before your
opponent beats you to it. Will you take the slow, safe options or will you
risk it all on a rush? Hilarity promised to ensue.
- Use a set of twin cannons to destroy unauthorized merchant ships in the
"Dragon" Sea. Destroy them faster than your opponent to win.
- Participate in a Pixie Court by playing the politics of various factions
against each other. Learn who favors whom to accurately guess the winner.
(The results are not random).
- Bonfo the traveling merchant will be selling special Strythmas treats and
decorations.

My friends, not every event has double exp, especially not month-long ones. It is honestly a little disheartening that the only feedback on every single holiday event I put together is 'no double exp?? Sad Sad'

That said, hope everyone is enjoying this.

I'll tell you that I think any time some non typical event that is put into any game, a shoutout should be given. It's easy to, in your mind, think this is freaking awesome...and really enjoy what someone has worked on without thinking to praise the people who did the work. This applies to every day LIFE and the real-life workplace environment.

So here is to those who work, maintain, do awesome things on the mud. HERE HERE AND THANK YOU!

Oh sorry Vev, wasn’t trying to sound ungrateful here, just general curiosity. This is a well thought out event with a lot of work and effort (enjoyed racing the dragon skeleton), so please don’t let my comment steer you away from my appreciation.

Thanks team. I was prone to a knee-jerk reaction because it looks like my leaderboard is messed up, making it look like no one has even played any of the games once. I'll be looking into that today to see what I can do, but I thought it was all tested and working so...this may just be a limitation of what I can do with the tools I have. We'll find out together.

Please report bugs. Smile

I just wanted to throw out there that I would like to participate in these events, but it seems the ones I found (race and cannon) are for 2 people. I haven't been able to join the fun...but not for lack of trying.

The leaderboard resets when the game resets. That's the deal. Take advantage of resets to get your #1 slot.

Games are back again this year. Resets will still reset the leaderboard and you need two players to participate in any game. Find a friend and have fun! I'll post any updates in this thread. Feel free to report bugs or leave feedback. But most of all, have a great and safe holiday in game and in reality.
