Posted a steam version of the "news blog post" Holiday Event 2020

 

@Sakebee @MattScott Will the "HoHoHoPGL" be enabled/usable in mission districts this time? (they used to be in the older xmas events but have been forgotten in the last few xmas events)

Older xmas events used to give an Unluck for a non-standard F2P weapon like the Cobra or the Far.

(Which, granted, required atleast 4~5 days of ingame farming and then still costs 16.000APB$ for 2 weeks)

Hey all,

Our provider changed the maintenance date, so today we have some good news! Our expected downtime will now only be 4 hours instead of the previously stated 10. Maintenance will start at 9AM UTC and we will update our messaging accordingly.

Happy holidays!

1. No xmas dump trucks.

2. Being stunned in the nutcracker event whilst holding a snowball gets it stuck in your hand if you don't die and just stand back up.

3. Achievements are hidden again. (EDIT. Or is there none? Where are the ways to get skins from previous years?)

4. No holiday contacts in Financial.

5. FPS stinks for some reason.

6. Dynamic Event Financial and Waterfront are showing up for some reason.

7. The 12 deaths of xmas role overlays over itself when maxed (see image below)

Merry Xmas to everyone.

But I'm a little disappointed about this year's rewards, content and stuff, you guys didn't even bother to include old rewards in Armas? Really? I really miss these old xmas skins and Santa's customizable outfit. Thanks for JT's, really, I appreciate it too, but, you could give us something more than that. Even if it would be for G1C...

tbh this event feels hollow like you didnt put any effort into it. no rewards for doing certain things or anything. just "have some jt for over over priced ingame perma guns you fucks" and that's it. 

1/10 it's a shame after the last 3 years especially since you made the psr suck in the event so hard that only few can get to 12 now

Imagine expecting people to spend their holidays working instead of being with family.

Lol don't you know. Game devs don't deserve freedom. They are obviously meant to just be slaves to their customers/players.

If this game even survives till next Christmas.. 
For the love of god start it earlier and end it in the first week of January..
You're starting an xmas event 1/2 days before xmas (depending on where you live) and then run it 2 whole weeks in to January as well.
It's simply too boring and the festive spirit is long gone by now, just bring Asylum back already.
