Now that the weather has turned cold, you know what event that means... SNOWBALL FIGHT!
Now marks the beginning of our FOURTH annual Snowball Fight! Collect snowballs from random events around the site and use them to pelt other users. To keep things fair, I've had a dragon go around and melt everyone's regular snowballs.
You can use the event tab (star icon) in your toolbar to see how many snowballs you currently have. Or you can just look in your inventory.
In the forums or on a user's profile, click the snowball that you want to throw at the user.
Unless you're out of snowballs, the user will then be pelted with the snowball! If they're online, they'll get a message about it. Your 'pelt points' are calculated by how many snowballs you've thrown minus how many times you've been hit. The red Sinister Snowballs (formerly called Evil Snowballs) have the effect of throwing THREE snowballs, but they also cause you to get hit once. They're so expensive because they let you knock people's scores down.
You can buy snowballs, as well as disable the snowball sound effects & pelt notifications, on the event pages
Rewards will include Holiday Gift Boxes, coins, Ice Sculptures, and more. You're, of course, welcome to not participate in the leaderboards and just throw snowballs at your friends for fun
Have fun and PLEASE DON'T PELT ME!FAQ:
* HOW DO I GET SNOWBALLS?
There are random events you can get from randomly browsing the website that give you up to 40 snowballs at once, for free. Alternatively, you can buy them for 75 coins at the bottom of the Event Tracker page
* WHAT DO I DO WITH SNOWBALLS?
As mentioned above, look under people's avatar pictures on the forums or on their profile and you'll see two pictures of snowballs. Click or tap on the one you want to throw.
* I THREW LOTS OF SNOWBALLS, WHY AM I NOT TOP 10 MOST THROWS?
Look to see if you are already on the Top 10 Pelt Points or Top 10 Most Hits -- you can only chart in one category at once.
* WHAT IS A PELT POINT?
Your pelt points value is the amount of snowballs you've thrown MINUS the amount that others have thrown at you.
* I COLLECTED SOME SNOWBALLS FOR A BRIEF PERIOD ON SATURDAY AND NOW THEY'RE GONE
The random event was accidentally activated prior to the event commencing. When the event officially started, all white snowballs were removed from everyone's accounts.
* I DON'T LIKE THE COMPETITION
Snowballs are the easiest to obtain this year compared to previous years. You can simply throw snowballs at others for the fun of it, and completely ignore the leaderboards.
* WHERE ARE MY PRIZES?
The event does not end until early January, at which point the prizes are handed out to those in the Top 10 charts. The prizes are not exclusive, and will be/already have been able to be procured through other methods, albeit with difficulty.
* CAN I USE MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS?
No, you are only allowed to use one account to participate in the snowball fight. Using more than one account to throw snowballs, or throwing/having others throw snowballs at your alternate accounts, is not allowed. All accounts in the leaderboards will be checked to make sure they did not cheat prior to the winners being chosen. If your alt. account is in the Top 10 due to others boosting it without your knowledge, you will not be punished, your alt. will just not get the prizes if your main account already won.
