Christmas Fiasco Changes

[This has details for all the changes to the quest since the event started]

  • The 30 minute timers have been replaced with count-up timers that don't fail, so all players can participate in Fiasco and get the end reward, regardless of how new or veteran they are.

  • Coal is awarded at the end of every Fiasco, with more being obtained on higher difficulties, and more being obtained by clearing Episode 2.
  • Skip Dialogue has been added.
  • The end console will only warp the user up to Pioneer 2.
  • The timer will freeze after killing the last enemy, instead of having to use the console.
  • Rings have been added at the end of CCA and Desert 2.

And I think that's everything, we hope you enjoy the Christmas Event.

Christmas event Update: December 9th, 2017

An update to the Christmas event was just pushed. A new shop appears in Episode 1's Shop category in which you can trade Coal for rewards.

Also, minor changes were done to the ship and the client. Presents will now show up as a blue dot on the mini-map and the rare drop sound will occur when presents drop from enemies.

You can read more about the Christmas event in it's dedicated topic at https://www.pioneer2.net/community/threads/ephinea-christmas-2017.9136/

Thank you for playing on Ephinea!

P.S. I want to thank [USER=107]@Matt[/USER] for developing the quest and the entire event planning team for coming up with how the event should go down. It's much easier to not have to do any thinking whatsoever and just code whatever they tell me to do. :P

Quick restart of ships at 15:30 UTC

There will be a quick restart of all ships at 15:30 UTC (in about an hour) to add the new Coal exchange quest, another part of the Christmas Event.

Thank you for your understanding.

  • The power of the server's weekly rotating boosts will be doubled. (DAR+50%, Rare Monster +100%, Rare Item +50%, Experience +100%)
  • From Christmas Eve to New Year's, December 24th until January 1st, the chance to get presents will become 1/750.
  • The Christmas Fiasco quest will be playable.
  • There may be some changes to the event during the entirety of the event, so please stay tuned.
