Winter has arrived upon us, and that means it's time for Snowball Arena! Snowball Arena is special zone where you and your friends can PvP or MvM each to other using only snow balls! Inside an complex and cleverly tactically angled map, there has never been more competitive when it comes to snowball fighting!
Where: Lower Icicle Castle ( 1355 / 570 )
When: Dec 18 - Till Winter Ends!
Details: Any player can participate, there is no requirements at all, to join and play snowball arena you will need to first go to designated area which is at lower icicle castle. You can tell if you are in snowball arena zone if you can see the HUGE Christmas tree nearby. Inside this area you may send PvP or MvM requests (just as you would in bar) and when all entrants accepts invitation, each team will be sent to side of snowball arena. Immediately, all characters are outfitted with Christmas apparel, depending on which side, there is red and green team. Inside the snowball arena you may not use any skills or items, or melee. Instead you must gather and collect snowballs from Snowman by clicking on him. You can carry max of 20 snowballs at once, if you run out, you'll need to go back to Snowman and collect more snowballs. To use snowball, use it like any other item, double click the item or place the item into your shortcut bar. You can throw snowball similarly how you cast conch strike, meaning it's target-area not target-point where you would have to click on a character/monster. The target-area is very small and requires good aim, it can damage multiple people (provided if they all are in a line) just as voyager's conch strike would. All snowballs do 10% of MXHP and mini-stuns (so it always takes 10 hits no matter what class or level you are, similarly any of your equips are forfeited as you would not regen HP or gain movement speed bonuses). Additionally, there is small chance for the snowball to do critical damage (call it snowball HEADSHOT!) which deals 20% MXHP instead! Additionally there is very short cooldown on throwing snowballs. While the match is expected to last for short time, should the match stall, there will be a greedy santa spawned at middle of arena, steal it's santa bag and return to your side to win! You can kill this greedy Santa (and whoever last hit the greedy santa) will become "slow" and have shining aura this character(Sorry we didn't had enough time to develop custom model and animations to add santa bag behind your back), you can now instant-win the match ONLY if you manage to return to your side alive. You do not have necessarily to kill the greedy santa, but should both side refuse to come around (spawn campers) you can then, go kill the greedy santa and return to your side instead. In MvM mode, if you've killed greedy santa and die, the "slow" state will be passed to next alive team mate.
So in summary:
- Free to play all you want!
- All players play equally, nobody is stronger or powerful!
- Simple but fun Mechanism to allow exciting battles!
- Fail-safe system in-case both side is cowards and refuse to go out of spawn!
- Reinforcements of team-ally by making each side outfitted synchronized Christmas set!
- Stay alive OR steal the santa bag to win!
