    Winter Holidays - 2016 Are they on a timer?

    12DaysOfDeals.jpg

    Come celebrate the holidays with 12 Days of Deals!! Every day from December 14 through December 25th, there will be a special deal on one top-selling item in the Item Store.

    Each deal is only available for one day, so don’t miss out! Make sure you follow @Funcom_Anarchy on Twitter to see the daily deal, or log in to the Item Store to check in.

    For the duration of this year's holiday celebration, we will be offering two new items: the "Nophex 3D Printer: Holiday Edition" and the "Nophex 3D Printer: Deluxe Holiday Edition." The normal 3d Printer device will create a single item sure to bring some holiday cheer, while the Deluxe 3D Printer will give an item to all nearby team members!

    The results of these items can be traded until they are right-clicked.

    Active subscriptions will also be given a free "Nophex 3D Printer: Holiday Edition!" Additionally, claim a free Wrapped Present just for logging in!

    Santaleet

    Santaleet is back in the major cities on Rubi-Ka and will as usual hand out missions to help his Elfleets, so that they once again can bring happiness to the leets and citizens of Rubi-Ka. You will have to man up to face the alien forces that has infested Santaleet's workshop, and among them the terrifying alien fleet commander Grin'Cha.

    The Elfleets have worked hard this year and created many of the previous years’ holiday content. By hunting down the winter leets in the major cities of Rubi-Ka, you will be able to take their gifts for yourself.

    Gift-Wrapped Leet

    The Gift wrapped leet has been too greedy and stolen shiny stuff from Santaleet again. He will be hiding under a christmas tree in Borealis, and it will be your task to help him clean up this mess so that he can celebrate the "Wintar holidals" like all the other leets.

    Gingerleet

    The adorably delicious Gingerleet returned to Rubi-Ka and is hiding from all the hungry people who would like to eat her. Drop by Stret West Bank if you would like to ask her for a snowball lantern or perhaps a gingerbread yutto tent. With a little assurance that you won't eat her, you might become her friend.

    Father Time

    Returning to wander around Rubi-Ka is Father Time. His exact motivations for visiting Rubi-Ka are unclear, but he seems to be searching for something. He will turn up in various places all over the surface of Rubi-Ka - Track him down and collect a unique memento from that encounter.

    Father Time is less willing to pass on with this year, and is far better prepared to fight against aggressors. After a year of training, knowing that this fated encounter would happen, he is ready to face the hardened citizens of Rubi-Ka. In addition to learning some new techniques and strategies, engaging in Father Time will temporarily cause you to become PvP Enabled - Approach with caution!

    Father Time has also happened upon some rare treasures, that he will not part with willingly.

    Happy Holidays!

    Once again, happy holidays, everyone! Regardless of what you believe or celebrate, I hope you all have a happy and safe end of 2015, and a great start to 2016!

    To be fair, no updates have happened for TSW either. I'd be more concerned if TSW was updated for winter content and AO wasn't.

    I'm more and more afraid the Christmas event won't occur this year, which would be for the 1st time ever.

    Anarchy Online Holiday Celebration 2016

    Its that time of year again when the Santa Leets are scurrying around Rubi-Ka checking their list and finding out who's been naughty or nice.

    The Advisors of Rubi-Ka in conjunction with Gridstream Productions are throwing a Holiday Celebration:

    Dates: December 17th
    Where: Newland City near Neuters
    Times: Saturday Dec 17th: 20:00 GMT (15:00 EST) - 24:00 GMT (19:00 EST)

    There will be prizes and contests. We hope you will join us.

    Consider yourself on the Island of Misfit Toys. Or, the Island of the Forgotten. I'm sure the FC staff have drained their glasses of spiked eggnog, worn the lampshades on their head and checked out for the rest of the year. It's lumps of coal for us. The AO community has been very naughty financing their endeavors on ventures that have nothing to do with us.

    Thank you FC. You really have put the FU back into fun without even having to wrap it or put a bow on it. Grinches.

    Oslo even, in that case ;p

    Can't really say we're ostages, we've sure lost any empathy for FC, and we'd sure like any authority to help.

    Well, it seems FC finally succeeded at creating something !

    Totally looking forward to coal here...it's fripping COLD! 18f/-7c atm. Does get colder, -4f last night.

  15. #15
    18.8.18.2 is currently on test atm and it's kind of a mixed bag but Ill try and list everything.

    1. Most if not all item shop items are now nodrop. examples: Token packs, VP packs, factions boosts, breed/gender changes, Nanocans, premium leet etc.

    1b. 3 new Nanocans were added for General Abilities, CompLit and Treatment giving 20, 35 and 35. More or less makes everything that was close doable now and stuff still not doable were 50-100+ skills off anyways (Dshark Doc, 250 Art chest on 200s)

    1c. Holiday pet nanos like christmas leet and halloween leet are nodrop also.


    2. Lots of "Christmas Gifts" (29 total) added to database but what they give is mostly social so meh.


    3. Illegal Ofab weapons lost their LE req, no other changes to them.


    4. Silencer armor set scales to 220 now, other sets unchanged.


    5. new "junior" ofab weapons added to database that appear to be the levelable weapons asked for like 1-2 years ago? No idea where to get them.
    Most are pretty bad as they should be tho some are very bad like Bow*/2HB/SMG/AR/Pistol. Either they have 50 crit from 1 to 220, slow speed, arguably weaker than the C04/870/C01 etc weapons at 220 and lack of specials on some weapons.
    Bow could work as a fast AS swap for some profs.

    I think FC will find that they need to adjust their pricing of these items now to entice people to actually buy them to use, but aside from that it's not a bad change. Those items should have always been nodrop imo.

    I dislike this change because I pay FC enough money as it is. They should put all item shop items for sale in a normal booth to provide a proper credit sink. People are already paying 500m+ for a breed change...just have them buy it straight from FC at 500m.

    Louderer for game director.

    That would mean bad business for them as many people sit on big piles of duped creds. I'm sad to see many items losing nodrop tag, but perhaps like the guy above me said - the prices could hopefully be fixed now. The only item i ever bought off itemshop has been ai3 anyway.
