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.

    Can we get an official statistical overview of the event ?
    I'm just really curious how much snowballs were collectively thrown, received, etc. 
    Thanks in advance

    Once it all had finished I'm still pretty curious about that "Get Off MySnowbank!" achievement. How it was obtainable??

      If you got any of the five secret achievements, you should know the method of obtaining the rest as well. I'm not sure if the same achievements can be earned next time so I'm a bit hesitant about directly telling the answer.

        Old achievements will remain doable next Snowpocalypse.

        We'll also add to the list with a new meta feat.

    Thank you for the event. It was simple, but surprisingly fun. :)

    I can see that even after the end of Snowpocalypse, the battle is still going on. The snowballs haven't ran out yet, so watch out. :)

    But to my suprise, it seems like I made it to both Leaderboards. Thank you very much for all snowballs everyone. Sorry if I missed someone, I always tried to throw another in return. Maybe, you'll have your vengeance, next time. ;)

    Grats to everyone who made it to the leaderboard, and especially for being such great sports while you were at it! With 1504 snowflakes left, protected by the patent-pending N0-M3LT, I'm all set for next year! (Or maybe, I'll use them to give someone a real good peppering!)

    Flux, maybe you could have a look at the 'clues gathered' for next year? There are just 20 places, so sometimes we show up, and sometimes we fall off again. Not a big thing though, it's been an awesome event!

      The issue is we aren't displaying them in order of completion. I know it's something we can solve with the right database query, just need some time to look into it.

      That's what happens when you deploy the site to staging but don't flip the switch to live. Yikes.

        So now that that's fixed, what happens with leftover snowballs? It looks like they can still be purchased in the shop.

          They'll be removed along with the other snow items.

          Snowballs themselves will remain usable the next event. We might have some new plans for things you can do with them though...

    A congratulatory Snowball to our current cochampions Alleria and Pezman, and like Caro the final Snowball to Fluxflashor for an awesome event. 444 seems a fun number to stop at, so I will bank the remaining snow for next time!

    Okay people, thanks to all of you I´ve just reached a milestone of 700 thrown snowballs and as the competition is over soon, I ain´t gonna throw anymore, so feel free to hit anyone else instead of me. Let´s see if Pezman can over-throw me :D

    Special thanks to madcat and FenrirWulf for bombarding me with hundreds of snowballs, and to Fluxflashor and the crew for making this awesome and fun event. Special mention Grumpy000 for being so friendly and fair competitor along with Pezman.

    Love you all OOCians ♡
