Hey there, looks like you just wandered in. Why not have a look around and stay for a while, maybe even start your own adventure, if you're into that.

Winter Festivities Conclusion!

Hello everyone, thank you so much for participating in our
First Winter Festivities! We hope you had a great time exploring
the Constellation Library, and getting a peek into the
motivations of the elusive peddlers - Pai, Agnes and Oran.

Here are some end of event stats you might be interested in!
In total, 2744 users participated in wrapping up 113174 gifts in the Winter Tree!

213 users made 1261 submissions in the Bauble Decoration Contest!
187 users made 895 submissions in the Creativity Prompt Contest!
84 pages of submissions were made in the Avatar Contest Thread!

Reviewing the submissions to these contests was a major highlight of the event for us. There were so many amazing entries, ranging from avatars that made us nostalgic, to uniquely beautiful artwork and writing across the bauble and creativity contests. There were even delicious looking pastries we hope their bakers enjoyed!

Here are the different winners we rolled or picked for each contest!

Future-Plans.png
Here are some plans for improvements for future events like this that we've accumulated from hosting this event!
  • For the sake of future gifting events, we'll be working on balancing item rarity better across the site.
  • We’ll be looking into the rarity matching of gift donations vs. claims to see if we can equalize the system better.
  • We’ll be adjusting Pai’s daily quest “Perusing the Constellation Library” to have a better indication of unlock progress on the final quest. For future quests with this style of unlock, the progress will also be shown more clearly.
  • We’ll be looking into adjusting the layout of the Winter Tree so that less scrolling is required to see the main content.
  • We’ll be adding easier tracking of the event currencies in the winter tree.
  • We’ll be improving on our contest threads that we tried out this event in order to make the experience better.

Our next event is going to be a Spring Event! Before that, we will be working on launching a number of other updates which we'll be posting more info about soon.

Pai thanks you for your help this winter as they look out at
the last vestiges of frost clinging to the window.
They hope that you'll remain curious and find what you're
looking for, out in the great wide world.

    This was a wonderful event, thank you for hosting it.

    "113174 gifts" That is an insane number of gifts, lol. Is that why you had to cut off the tree at a certain date, instead of letting it stay around till all the gifts were claimed? ;P
  • Villager Forelle (#2921) 23 Mar 2021, 12:02 am
    Got to say, there was a ton of improvement from last event to this one, so you're definitely on the right track. Well done.

    No! I didn't get to use the things i the winter boutiqe that 'i had gathered up ;-;
    In the autumn event it gave us a clear deadline and we could exchange a fiew days after it stopped being able to gather. I am so sad now ;-;
