Hey everyone! TheHeggzer here. It's event time!
The eggs are on the prowl again! They've gone and scattered themselves all across Zero, and it's your job to go find them again!
So, how will this event work?
Well, for this version of the Egghunt, there will be 2 distinct parts!
Part 1: The Open World Egg Hunt!
Starting Monday, April 13th at 2pm EST, an lovely medieval and fantastical open world built by the magically talented chayos will open, chocked full of all the eggs you could possibly desire! You job will be to collect them all! There will be no reward for finding all of the eggs in the open world first, so explore and hunt at your own leisure! For finding 10% of the eggs, you will receive a nifty hat. For finding 50% of the eggs, you'll receive an even cooler hat! For finding every last one of the eggs, you will receive the Eggspert title! This will be accessible through the event hub at spawn, check back there Easter Day. Good luck!
Part 2: The Compeggtition!
This year, instead of having players compete to find all of the eggs first, there will be a separate tournament to determine who is the egg finding champion! This event will feature eggs hidden in stages sourced from old zero areas.
How it will work:
The tournament will feature teams of 2. Sign up at this link:
This tournament will be maxed out at 32 players, so don't delay! All players are welcome to sign up. You may sign up as an individual or a team of 2. If you are signing up as an individual, you will be placed in a team. If you are signing up as a team, both players must respond to the form.
Rounds in the tournament will consist of head-to-head egg scavenger hunts, and each round will take place in a different stage with all new eggs to find. Each round of the tournament will be timed, and the round will be over when one team finds all of the eggs or the timer runs out. If the timer runs out, the team with the most eggs will be the winner. If there is a tie at the end of the timer, the game will go into overtime, where the first team to find an egg will be declared the winner.
If you are planning on participating in the event, please ensure that you will have time to participate in your matches. Matches will start the same day as the competition, April 13th. The matches will take place over multiple days, just like the open world part of the event, so don't worry if you aren't available on the day of the event or any specific day afterwards.
All players that compete in the tournament will receive the Compeggitor hat! The players on the winning team will receive the most coveted title of all, The Egglord.
This event will run somewhere from a few days to a few weeks, so feel no rush to participate in the Open World Egg Hunt. There will be a schedule to the Compeggtition, however, and if matches are not happening in a timely manner, participants will forfeit their matches. If you are unavailable on a certain day or at a certain time, I will do my best to be as flexible as possible and set it up so that you can participate. Individual matches will last around an hour, give or take 30 minutes.
Do not aim to circumvent the gameplay of the event.
Do not search Zero to try and find areas. I will not be telling anyone where the stages are, and it creates an unfair advantage to location scout.
Please post if you have any questions/concerns, or if anything is unclear, and I will happy answer/clarify.
As a final note to all of you exploring spawn the day before I posted this, you came up short here, sorry. I appreciate the enthusiasm though.
Edit: bolded all information I added/changed.
