Holiday Event 2018

The Holiday Event 2018

Ho-Ho-Ho Merry (Whatever you celebrate) :P

Whatever this time of the year means to you, one thing unites us all here and that is…
‘Tis the season for theHunter: Classic Holiday Event!

This year’s event we have 11 missions and 10 competitions, that alternate in days. Tomorrow
we start the event with a Mission and then on Saturday, we start our first Competition, then
on Sunday we have a new Mission etc.

Missions can be completed up until the 21st of December, but like previously mentioned a
new one is added to the pack every two days.

If you are a Mission guru, you should like this years missions. They feature characters from
older mission packs and have some great little stories to go along with them. Each mission
you complete will gift you 20,000 Present$, completing all 11 will give you a total of 220,000
Present$, more about the Present$ Points later!

The Competitions are centered around the same theme as the Mission that came the day
before it, but generally much more challenging. Each Competition runs for 48 hours, finishing
just as the new one starts! Prize for the competitions look like this:
  • 1st Place: 300 em$ and a Trophy
  • 2nd Place: 200em$ and a Trophy
  • 3rd Place: 100em$ and a Trophy
  • 4th-10th Place: 50em$ and a Trophy
Completing a competition will also award the hunter 20,000 Present$ points.

The Holiday Event

This year Santa has dropped Presents all over the EHR and if you find them, you can pick
them up to collect Present$! The more Present$ you collect, the more in game prizes
you are rewarded. This is how the prize pool looks:

1st Place:Trophy + 12 mo Membership + Elite Scout Gun
2nd Place: Trophy + 6 mo Membership + Elite Scout Gun
3rd Place: Trophy + 3 mo Membership + Elite Scout Gun
4th - 10th Place: Hunting Tower (Bare Wood) + 700 em$ + Trophy
800 000 Present$: Legendary Holiday Gift Bundle + Trophy
500 000 Present$: Epic Holiday Gift Bundle + Trophy
300 000 Present$: Brilliant Holiday Gift Bundle + Trophy
225 000 Present$: Trophy + 50 Camping Supplies
150 000 Present$: Trophy + 50 Scent Eliminator
75 000 Present$: Trophy

It is worth noting that the Elite Scout, is the ‘Premium’ version of the Scout that everyone has been voting on and different to the variation that will initially be for sale.

If you want the bundles but collecting Present$ are not your thing:
  • The Brilliant Bundle can be purchased and viewed here in the store.
  • The Epic Bundle can be purchased and viewed here in the store.
  • The Legendary Bundle can be purchased and viewed here in the store.

You can get Present$ by doing the following:
  • Participating in any of the competitions with an entry will reward 20 000 Present$.
  • Finishing a mission will grant 20 000 Present$.
  • Shooting any land animal will reward 250 Present$.
  • Shooting any airborne animal will reward 100 Present$.
  • Picking up a Green Present collectable will earn 1 - 100 Present$.
  • Picking up a Blue Present collectable will earn 5 - 100 Present$.
  • Picking up a Red Present collectable will earn 20 - 100 Present$

We have frozen Christmas time (Time will always be 18:00) and decked the halls in Hemmeldal. It has some nice Christmas decorations placed
around the reserve… as well as Rudolph, so keep an eye on those Reindeer noses!

If you are feeling extra Festive, you can purchase yourself a;

and hand picked items will be purchasable for the whole of December. Just to clarify, sales
continue until the 31st of December!

It should be very balanced this time Serge.. I believe so anyway. The max you can get for a present is 1000 Present$, its rarer than the black skull and the rest of the presents have a random point factor to them. The best way to get points should be to compete in the events (20,000) and to shoot animals as usual. That is how we have aimed it to work this event and we will be watching the feedback closely!

...I saw already , that the presents will have a random number .but doesn't change the fact that one can do just that , run all over for them with his free time .

Seems to me it will be about getting the presents, if you do all missions (220 000) / competitions (200 000) that puts you on 420 000 out of the 800 000 Present$, that leaves 380 000 Present$ to go to the final reward, which is 38000 kills on land animals so in 3 weeks that is 1809.5 kills a day? :P
