[Event] Presents for the good little girls and boys

Recommended Posts

It's that time again. EVENT TIME!!! The citizens of Etheria have all been good little boys and girls this year and have been waiting for there presents. 


What Do I Need to Know

Please check out this guide to get up to speed on how to run events. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1211979327


When Will The Event Happen

The event will start on Friday, January 19th 12:00 (UTC-4/EST) and end on Sunday, January 21st 22:00(UTC-4/EST). There will be guaranteed at least one host on from 12:00-22:00(UTC-4) each day. We will try to have hosts available at other times as well.


What Do I Need to do to be Ready for the Event

The event map will be open for download a couple of days in advance of the event. This thread will be updated with a link to that map at the bottom once it is up. Before the event you need to check back to this thread and subscribe to the map in the Steam Workshop. Please try hosting it yourself before the event at least once to make sure you have it installed correctly. After that, get ready for quick thinking, quick building, and quick DPS. Hacked and/or modded gear is not permitted during the event *except for gear from the Event Armory Shipment*. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1212045289


Can I Play With My Friends

Yes! You can bring a group of up to 5 players. So find some compadres to adventure with ya:) (If some of your friends have already ran the event they can re-run it with you for fun but please keep in mind that those who have yet to run the event will get first priority over those who are re-running the event so you may have to wait longer than expected.)

Note: You may encounter an issue after you download the event map and try to go back to ranked and join a game. It is possible you might get a package version mismatch error. The first step to fix this is to restart the game. If that doesn't work then unsubscribe from the map and verify integrity of your game cache.


Extra note: The last few waves of this map are very involved. Trying to run this event in smaller group will be next to impossible. 


F.Y.I. Winning will not be required. all participants will receive the same number of rewards.

My and my friends play ONLY in ranked mode without mods (obviously). Is this a modded thing that's not allowed in ranked mode or something? Sorry if that's a noobish question, I'm just not sure. Thanks.

You need to download the map in the workshop in open mode. Don't worry you can tranfer all you ranked characters to  open mode.

Hey guys,


Long time DD player: Just curious will be streaming pretty heavily over the week and would love to do the same for the up coming event.

However, the "Hosting" side of things is very vague. Can someone please tell me if I have the below correct:


1. Download MAP.

2. Test - ensure it works

3. Find people to join your game OPEN game not Ranked

Is this all that's required I think I was reading you had to sign up somewhere? EDIT: NVM All good!

Cheers,


Lukumms
