Easter is almost upon us and you know what that means folks... Classic's annual egg hunt has begun! Eggs will appear randomly on the overworld except for on walls and water. The one that collects the most eggs, before the end date, will receive some very special prizes. Those prizes being the Easter card for your card deck (for the soon to be released card game, only 2 easter cards will be in existence till next year) and a Golden Egg Trophy!!

The end date for the egghunt will be Monday, April 13th at 12am EST. To see who is currently in first place simply type /egghunt in game. Well good luck to all those that decide to scour Classic's lands for eggs. :D

Cards and a trophy really compare to the crappy NPC I got you can't even see.

Eggs can be found all over the overworld as Night said.
They will not appear in walls or water as Night said.
A new one will appear around every 5 minutes, it could be anywhere on the overworld.
They will never disppear until picked up, 100 max is the amount that can be online but I highly doubt that cap will be reached.

Rufus is somehow at 54 or so already after spending 7 hours hunting, so good luck lmao.

I pointed out the first year an egg hunt was done that it favored anyone who can log on when there's nobody on.

Even I was on early this morning and was going to do what Rufus did if nobody else was going to just to prove the point again.

What is the point of an event that favors a couple people so heavily?

Why can't the eggs drop at 3 hour intervals(Or whatever will fit) so that people can know when to be on and plan their time instead of having a boat load drop randomly even when nobody(or in this case one person) is on?

It's sad to see an event go so quickly to waste, even more so when the problem was glaring the first year the event was done.

Oni
04-06-2009, 11:55 PM
That is a great idea.
Have all the eggs spawn at certain times, and then disapear, or else ppl from england or australia (Wazza) will win and get everything.

# eggs dropped per 5 minutes = playercount / 10

Thus if 9 or less people are online, no eggs are dropped.

I have 5 accounts with Classic time. All I need is one other person who knows at least 4 other accounts and I can abuse this system.

Time intervals give everyone who wants to take part in the event a heads up about when to be on and when they can participate while maintaining their time outside of Graal for sleep and other things.

Exactly what I said. I thought it should of been more organized not to mention they released this unannounced until after it was released.

When Wikkid started doing egghunts on UN back in like 06 (don't actually know if there was any egghunts way before that but it was definitely the first in 2-3 years), she made it so it was more timed when they were dropped in a big egghunt gmap. If you had several eggs, you could still buy something in despite not being the top egg collector. It was still competitive and most people could get some goodies.

they did the same in 08 , there was alot of eggs on the map and each eggs gave you points to buy npc , hat

Really wish they'd come up with more than just easter egg hunts. I know it is an actual easter tradition but there are other activities done on easter, like egg painting and whatnot.

There's not much really you can do for Easter really IMO. I can't imagine egg painting would be doable on a Graal server, unless it was using predefined images which really limits your ability to make a nice unique egg. If the competition was external, the good graphic artists of the server are always going to win it so there's really no point.

Make the easter bunny into a villain, where he stole something valuable and people have to go hunt him down and get it back.

If the competition was external, the good graphic artists of the server are always going to win it so there's really no point.Maybe a predefined egg outline, but have the ability to use pictionary type tools to paint the egg. Maybe give the players the ability to show off their eggs, via some sort of card (like bowling?).

Eh, I think that would probably be pretty laggy. UN has a "draw it" event, and when the pictures of several different people are on display it takes a while for the level to load when you're added to it. I could be wrong though.

Just found out from Dusty that it could possibly be done, pretty cool.

Using a Tdrawingpanel as a drawing canvas it's highly possible that you could create an egg decorating event using different ways to draw on it. Tdrawingpanel is serverside now, so you'll be able to save a PNG of the panel to the server and then display the image. I haven't messed with it though.

But seriously, yes we like events, as players we like EXCITING, FUN, CHALLENGING, events. Sorry but we are all basically adults now and like I said, I'm not one for chasing around a couple of bunnies at a time then waiting for them to re appear just so that i could try to win a card....

I much rather slaughter the rabbits and have them infest every public area on graal. Woo Hoo rabbit slaughter!

But I don't recall people complaining for events, i recall them complaining for everything else. I want quests back, that would make me happy, id keep my mouth shut for good then :)

You don't understand the complaints then.

We would like a fair event. Not one that is heavily in favor of those who log on when nobody is online. How can an event be enjoyable when it is best played with nobody on the server?

Events done wrong are worse than no events at all. Would you rather the players kept quiet about how you can improve their happiness and enjoyment during events? From a Dev standpoint you won't get far with that kind of ideal.

Well despite the dispute over the egg hunt... it is over and a winner has been crowned. Dae wins this year's Easter egg hunt with a whopping 380 eggs collected.

For doing so Dae recieves the newly coveted egg trophy.

As well as the oh so rare Easter card.

I've also decided to give the trophy to egg hunt winners from the past few years as well. However, Dae is currently the only one with the card thus it's one of a kind.
