So was this egg spoil thing implemented to begin with?
No, it was a response to the event's unexpected popularity. Maybe it's a way to keep the forums form getting swamped or something.
Well Unka K posted an update on the first page about implementing the lifespan thing and why.
And Vanialle, basically when you start a thread you pick if it's cute or anti-cute, and there's a chance of finding eggs there for the thread's team.. But the enemy can take over the thread if you're not careful! Posting a specified number of times can stave off the enemy and keep the thread from being taken over. In the end the number of eggs you pick on each side will determine your "Alignment" And rewards. Right guys?
