Can Snowflakes melt?

Our Snowflakes are sprayed with our patent-pending N0-M3LT to protect them during non-wintery times. Any Snowflakes you don't spend will carry over to future winter events.

The front page will display the current weather status above news articles during a Snowstorm. If there is no special weather statement, you will not see an indicator.


Snowball FAQ

How do I throw a Snowball?

On desktops, you can throw a snowball by clicking on the target icon under a member's comment or forum post. On mobile, this icon will be beside their portrait. If you have a Snowball, it will succeed!

Giving and Receiving Snowflakes from Snowballs

  • Throwing a Snowball at another member will always return at least 5 Snowflakes to your wallet.
  • Your first Snowball thrown each day will net you a bonus of 20 Snowflakes. This is in addition to the daily quest to throw a Snowball.
  • If you throw a Snowball at a member who has not been hit recently, you will obtain a 5 Snowflake bonus.
  • If you are the target of a Snowball, you will receive between 4 and 7 Snowflakes.

Catching Snowballs

  • Once you have obtained 1000 Snowflakes, you unlock the ability to catch Snowballs. This is a rare occurrence and will result in the addition of a Snowball to your inventory.
  • For every 500 Snowflakes obtained after 1000, your chance to catch a Snowball that is thrown at you is increased.
  • If someone catches a Snowball you threw at them, it will not count toward your leaderboard score. You will still earn Snowflakes.

    According to the Event Calendar FAQ:

    "We'll have an additional advent calendar available for the entire month of January featuring more themed rewards. Stay tuned!"

    Just curious, will more cool cosmetics still be added during this snowpocalypse event? If not, then I know how many snowflakes in total I need to convert into cosmetics and the remainder I can spend on (throwing) snowballs 😋 assuming that the next snowpocalypse event uses a different kind of patent-pending snowflakes.

      I thought I actually removed that a while back, that's my bad.

      It's not going to happen at this point so please spend away. January has just been too busy and stuff was not prepared in advance for the release. Poor judgment on my part assuming there would be some time to knock out a load of more rewards.

      Snowflakes will still be usable next event though all old (current) rewards will have their costs increased so you are better off buying old rewards now (this was mentioned during the Halloween event).

      I'm assuming that same flakes will do next time as well. Why would Flux mention that they can be saved if that wasn't the case?

      For the first question, I think Flux has forgotten to add more stuff :D Can't promise if he still will.

        Ah, completely glossed over that comment, thanks. Hmm, that means I will save some snowflakes for next winter's event then.
