Holiday Event 2017

Postby EW_Graham » December 1st, 2017, 5:21 am


Holiday Event 2017

It's that "wonderful time of the year" again! Participate in daily events and gather points for your harvests to win some jolly prizes.

  • The event runs from December 1st until December 25th.

  • The event consists of special daily missions (13) and competitions (12). Once activated, missions can be completed any time before the end of the event, competitions will be active during 48 hours only. Attention: Holiday missions can only be activated on the event page (click on the event banner on the main page to open it), competitions can be found and activated via the Competitions tab in the main menu.

  • The main Holiday Event competition has special score points - jollyPoints, which can be collected during the event. There are two ways to collect jollyPoints, note that we spiced things up a little from last year by adding variety in the types of scoring animals:

    1) Each completed holiday mission rewards a score of 10000 jollyPoints and each holiday competition rewards 10000 jollyPoints simply for getting a score on the leaderboard. Please note that if another player harvests your animals you get the comp score but not the jolly points.
    2) Every animal you harvest during the event will award a flat amount of jollyPoints, according to a tier system:

    - ENTRY TIER -
    American Black Duck (airborne) - 5 pts
    Gadwall (airborne) - 5 pts
    Mallard (airborne) - 5 pts
    Northern Pintail (airborne) - 5 pts
    Canada Goose (airborne) - 5 pts

    Attention: Please note that delays might occur when it comes to scores registering for the event. Don't panic!

  • Let's go to the rewards;

    The main prize in this competition will be currently unreleased 9.3x74R O/U Break Action Rifle. Just like its cousin, the .30 R O/U the 9.3x75R has fearsome follow-up shot potential with a ready-chambered round in the second barrel. As an added bonus, and to make sure you get both of those shots right where they need to be, we'll also include a 1.1-8x30 Rifle Scope (also unreleased) as a part of the first prize. This rifle will be available in the store in the future, but not before the winners of this Holiday Event have had enough of fun and practice with it!

    Main leaderboard winners:

    1st place

The 1st of Dec was 10 hours and 29 minutes ago for me. Been waiting for a status update :P
All good though, still trying to finish the final Thanksgiving mission haha.
I gotta travel for work over the next week, just hoping my laptop can handle it while I'm away. (or worse, the hotel/mobile phone wifi. *shudder)

Thanks for the event!

But I am bit sad not to see any special collectables. Always enjoyed those.

Tiers for points look interesting, although you should consider using weapons instead of animals in those. It isnt that hard to just run around VdB mountains for example with powerful rifle and 12x scope and get plenty of ibex in short period of time. It is even easier than doing the same but with whitetails.
Anyway, nice event!

EDIT: And looking at some hunting stats, that is exactly what people on top do: Long range, ibex... Event is turning into Run'n'gun again :-(
