December is here, and as many players have been anticipating (through festive skins and nicknames), so is the holiday season.
We have a lot of activities and content lined up for December this year. If you were around last December, we'll have much of the same content, but with some additions. This includes the Holiday Gift Exchange, Holiday Present Hunt, Holiday Crate, and Holiday Mystery Present. You'll also notice that spawn has been given a chilly, festive look. The chat reaction word/phrases have been set to over 200 holiday themed words, phrases, and quotes! These features will last until about a week into the new year.
Along with these features, the Holiday Sale will begin soon, running for 2-3 weeks.
Here's some info on the new stuff that will be available during December:
Holiday Gift Exchange
Feeling generous this holiday season? Give one random online player a random gift with the Holiday Gift Exchange Present! Each present is $0.50 on our store, but can go as low as $0.35 when buying in bulk. Not only does a random player get a gift, but you also get a Gift of Giving for each gift you give. Gift of Givings can be traded in, at the end of the Holiday season, for very exclusive rewards (last year's highest reward was the ability to build your own base on our creative server and have it placed on the server for you). Not only can you get rewards for trading in Gift of Givings, but the top three most generous players, those who gave the most gifts, will receive huge prizes!
Holiday Present Hunt
Around spawn, 500 presents have been hidden. You'll get an exclusive reward for every 5th present you find, and the rewards get better the closer you get to finding 500. The present hunt is a great way to try out some of the Holiday donator items for free, as you can earn Mystery Presents, Holiday Crate Keys, and Gift Exchange Presents as rewards from the present hunt.
The present hunt rewards include:
- $1,000,000 total
- 50 Christmas Crackers
- 775 Points
- 275 XP Levels
- 9 DrugPass Levels
- 22 Gift Exchange Presents
- 5 Random Crate Keys
- 150 mcMMO Credits
- 3 Holiday Crate Keys
- 4 Holiday Mystery Presents
- 5 Exclusive Holiday Present Hunt Medallions
With some similar items to last year, the Holiday Crate contains 12 holiday themed rewards. This includes Glacial Boots, which give the user a permanent speed effect, and the Snowman's Nose, which is enchanted with looting 4 for greater farm harvesting.
Check out the other rewards in the Holiday Crate by left clicking it at /spawn.
Holiday Mystery Present
Feeling lucky? Try out the Holiday Mystery Present for yourself, or buy it for someone you care about. Opening the mystery present will get you a random item from our donation store. At a cost of $5 on our store, the rewards inside the present are all valued at $5 or more, so you're guaranteed to get something valued at the same, or more than, what you paid. You can even unwrap a fully upgraded pre-built base, with a total value of $127.50!
We hope you guys enjoy all the holiday content! As always, if you find any bugs, exploits, or problems, don't hesitate to contact staff; reporting a bug will get you a reward.
