    Hi Everyone,

    There will be a server check today 12th December 2015 at 15:30 Server Time (GMT), lasting for approximately 15 minutes.

    Changes during this server check:
    • Changes to Snowblower Christmas Event:
      • Disabled more skills from working the Extra Frosty Snow Zone map.
      • Fixed the lootability for the presents.
      • We will also try removing the 100 player limit for the time being to see if the lag is better with less skills working.
    The MapleRoyals Staff.

    If you notice any strange issues occurring since this server check please do not hesitate to create a thread in the support forum.

    What skills have been disabled in the map so far? Or should I ask, what skills are left that you can use in said map?

    What exactly is the point of adding a timer when there is no 100 person cap anymore? It's not like the people afking are taking up slots anymore, and it's not hard to just leave and re-enter once an hour even if there was still a room cap. If anything removing the 100 player limit makes it far less likely that a person who contributed snow would be able to loot a present.

    I guess that people weren't donating snow much though with the cap so it's kind of a damned if you do damned if you don't thing.

    With the player limit removed, the problem with low chance of looting presents resurfaces. When the snowman dies in a corner half of its presents are shot out of the map. Some players would try to rush back into the map to pick up two presents in one explosion. The most mentioned fix is to put the presents directly into the player's inventory, but if that's not possible, another solution could be to increase the drop rates and lock the map the instant the snowman drops its presents until all presents have despawned. If too many drops lagging the server is a concern then just implement the map lock so people aren't able to reloot.

    Another bug that occured after this server check besides unlootable presents is that snowballs now stack to 800 but the npc still gives 1000 snowballs.

    I've had to temporarily disable Roodolph to stop people entering the extra frosty zone and wasting their snow while Matt fixes the current issue (only the person who does the most damage gets a present). Sorry 'bout that!

    Will we be compensated? I was in two of the snowman boss fights and I wasn't able to get a box in either one.

    It isnt time based, and there will be plenty of more snowmen runs once it's fixed...so I don't think there would be. Compensation is usually given for things where there's a limited time to do it and the issue makes a big dent in that amount of time. Edited to add: If this year is going to be anything like last year, there will be several runs per hour and by the end of the event there will probably be a lot of back to back runs. Last year near the end we must've had at least 4 snowmen going at one time.

    Fair enough. Also, is there a list of possible rewards we can get from turning in a Christmas present to the tree?

    Off the top of my head, you can get 3 tradeable and 3 untradeable chairs. You can get gelt chocolates or banana graham pies, 5k NX, 1k NX...500 stars of maplemas spirit, you can get the christmas sock weather effect or a colored sock which is a shoe with 1 base stat - red sock has weapon attack, green sock magic attack, etc.. And there's more I just don't remember.

    Basic attack with the mitten and the snowballs you get from Happy the NPC.

    You can ask for a mitten from the same npc as you get the snowballs from. Both are free.
