SNOWBALL FIGHT GUIDE


Game rules:
Ethereal Darkness


Posting this in case it helps anyone at all ^_^

So after running around and getting data on what other people are getting for their accuracy... it looks like 60% (+/-2%) is the average for the entire gaia community.
Want to see the data? Go to my thread: Let's use math!


As such, I would recommend for people JUST STARTING who are trying to get the Snowball Hero achievement to buy at least 775 extra snowballs. This will get you the achievement (or within range of it) while spending/wasting the least amount of gold possible.

If you fall short... just use this equation to calculate how many more snowballs you should buy:

# of Snowballs = (# of Hits Remaining) x 1.60



Happy Holidays everyone!!~~ :3

Uncle Kenny
For those inexperienced in the art of snowball war, what you want to do is pack yourself a good, round snowball, find a target, and chuck it at their face! While we haven't figured out the secret to physical altercations through the interwebs just yet, we have done the next best thing and given you a forum-based snowball fight where you can watch your friends and enemies get hit in the face by the snowballs you throw.

To play, just click on the "Throw Snowball" button underneath another user's avatar. (If it's greyed out, just hover your mouse over the button to see the reason why you can't throw at them)
If you hit them, you'll see a snowball come flying in and smack them right in the face.
If you miss, just keep throwing until you've hit them or tire yourself out.
You start with 25 snowballs but you can buy more for gold from the event page, here.
Hit enough users or be hit enough yourself, and you'll find yourself the lucky owner of event exclusive items and achievements.


That's all you need to know, now get out there and start throwing!

Each snowball costs 50 gold.
After you post, you have 15mins to attack people before you must post again.
Posts that are over 1hr old can no longer be attacked.
You must wait 1min before attacking someone again.

Item rewards:
User Image Holiday 2k13 Snowjack - Hit 50 people with snowballs
User Image Holiday 2k13 Snowbunny - Get hit 50 times
