2013-12-19 - Holiday Event Begins!

Recommended Posts

I thought I had the Snow Wars game down but I see some pretty unhappy comments on this thread. Are we not supposed to be attacking each other? Damaging each others forts was the WHOLE idea of the game when we were kids in real time and space. I'm repairing mine every hour but I expected my fort to be damaged along the way. My apologies if I have harmed your fort and angered you. I use the random feature because I assumed it would even out the attacks rather than hitting just a few people.

 

Can someone please clear up how Snow Wars is to be played?

You're playing correctly. If you want to avoid hitting people who don't want to be hit, I'd stalk the snow fight thread in SD to hit people asking for it.

 

I think people are just kind of complaining because they're finally done with their fort and want it to sit prettily forever? That's my perception anyway. Either that or they're just starting out and it's harder for them to keep up with the repairs.

How do we know who won the Holiday Raffle?

I really would like to know how the winners know that they won and how it works. Is there suddenly an egg appearing on our scroll or do we get PM's (<= um, what if the scroll owner doesn't have a forum account?)?

I surely won't and do not want to let anybody know that I won.

 

In terms of snow forts, I can understand DoggyGuy. I myself got many attacks when I posted Holly trade offers rolleyes.gif there are users who are bombing me repeatedly with icicles, I swear biggrin.gif

ETA: And again....*yawns*

TJ emails the winners once he knows who they are. Winners are able to choose the new egg or one of their own choosing (people often opt for hollies), and also a special code if they wish (code optional). Once everyone's had a chance to reply, the eggs appear on the winning scrolls, no forum account needed.

Now THAT was a very useful reply. Thank you!

I see. I don't know, I'd probably take a silver Shimmer as I like them the best. A CB Holly has its advantages but considering you can only breed Holly offspring once a year it would sit on my scroll and stare at its tail.

You can only choose a shimmer if you get a first, second, or third place prize, though one of those winners can opt to downgrade if they don't want a prize dragon. All the rest are honorable mentions and can choose from nearly everything else in the cave.

One final question. If I do not send out future attacks does that effect my standing? I don;t want to piss people off but I don't to lose points either

You can ask to be attacked and pick up points very quickly like that.

 

Edit: if you do, provide a link to your fort and be ready to repair damage before your fort gets destroyed as (I think) you get no points for damage to a destroyed fort.

Once you reach max level, you don't gain or lose points.

My question is will our forts get auto repaired when the time is over? I'd hate to have mine broken and not be able to ever repair it again.

If you win the raffle, what if you don't use your email and you never notice?

Last year, there were redraws...

Guys, please have some patience. I'm seeing this question a lot, so here's my list of info on the raffle:

  • Please stop spreading rumors. TJ's post only specifies that you get a raffle ticket once you reach the maximum level (25, which is 98 exp). You do not get extra tickets from higher fort HP or whatnot. In past years, TJ has told us if and how to get extra tickets. Since he hasn't specified this year, there doesn't seem to be a way to get extra tickets.
  • Winners won't be drawn until sometime after the event, which is, remember, Jan 2. You can see the events on the forum calendar. Since TJ has not specified when he will contact winners, we do not know a specific date when it will happen. He will contact winners after the event is over and he has the time to draw raffle tickets and send out notifications.
  • Winners are notified via the email they registered with the cave. If you don't use the email you registered with anymore, make sure to check and change your email now. Account -> Account Settings, scroll all the way to the bottom. Make sure DC emails aren't set to get sent to your spam folder.
  • If you want to see how timing of the raffle went in past years, check out the past news threads. Here, I'll link you for easy reference. 2010 Intro 2010 Raffle Update 2010 Prize Update 2011 Intro 2011 Prize Update 2012 Intro 2012 Raffle Update To give winners a proper amount of time to reply, it can take a while for prizes to be given out.

When will TJ draw the raffle winners?

Just watch the news section. He'll probably make a post again like last year.

 

(Lol, only been playing a few months and I feel like I'm already an expert :3, thread digging has its advantages, and answers)

 

 

Edit: ahhhhh, got Ninja'd.

o: Good for you! So many people don't know how to do a little "research."

I just wanted to say (better late than never) I love how much work and detail went into the event, and the event itself was such a cool idea and so much fun.

 

Thank you, everyone who made it happen! biggrin.gif

I do wish there was some way of locking our forts or preventing any more attacks once we get to the requisite level.

 

I'm getting tired of repairing mine each day and really worried when it's saved at the end of the event it will be saved in damaged form sad.gif Always assuming, of course, it is saved - but given other year's things have been, I'm guessing it will be.

 

I'm not complaining, I'm just commenting.

 

It has been a fun event - even though I am hopeless at this kind of 'make' event, it's been a great deal of fun to build the fort, which is what it's all about of course.

 

So thank you, TJ, and those who also put work into the event.

I hope it will be saved, like the cookie houses we made earlier. I indeed also hope they'll be saved in the full-health state!

For those that are bored, go check the AP. I know I and others bred metals and rares on Christmas. They are due to start popping into the AP now, I noticed mine are still in limbo but at 5D 1-2 hours.

I wish people would stop attacking my fort already. Getting tired of having to repair it all the time.

I have a question about "upgrading" my fort with new items.

 

That is, every time I try to subtract anything (i.e. an igloo), it just won't let me. Am I dragging it to the wrong spot? I'm not sure how to take items off and it's defeating me xd.png

Double click the item you want to delete, it will then give you half points back.
