Time to play with water!


Water Balloon Fight!



Let’s catch some water balloons! The Water Balloon fight is back, but with some fun twists! You’ll still see them floating around throughout the game to catch until 2018-08-10 08:00. We’ve made a few changes to the water fight.

Changes since last edition


The gifts for the UFOs have been updated to make them more interesting.
How the players are ranked has changed to a point system. Everyone starts at 0 and the counter will increase or decrease based on the choices you make.


*** Note: It is possible for players to have negative points.


Caught a Water Balloon? Now, you will need to make a choice between these two options listed here:

1) Keep the gift: choosing to keep the gift will cause you to lose points in the rankings.
Throw the UFO to another player (which equals declining the gift) and gain points for the rankings.

2) Something to keep in mind when making your choice, the amount of points a gift is worth depends on its Black Market value. You must make a choice otherwise there won’t be any more balloon UFOs appearing for you until you do.

Prizes


The jackpot prizes that you can win at the end of the contest still rely on where you are ranked. So, collect as many points as possible to climb up the rankings to win:

1st to 5th: Hippogriff
6th to 10th: Mały and Golden Fleece

101st to 200th: Achilles' Heel

Enjoy throwing the Water Balloons at each other,

The Howrse Team

Honestly this is a horrible idea, I mean at least its not pay to win [or is it?] To be the top 100 you most likely have to be on this bloody game CONSTANTLY,


You really don't have to be on constantly. I am currently in 4th place and I only get on for about 5 minutes maximum, every 3 hours. You don't have to be on all day and all night. Just every 3 hours.

Yeah I’m in top 15 and I’ve only lived in every three hours and clicked around a bit and got off. If you have a lot of free time this is a pretty fai and easy promo. But if you’re an adult with a job or have better things to do then yeah it’s gonna be hard. I only work weekends so I don’t do much lol man I feel like a loser

It's more based off of the type of items you get. I'm on fairly often since I haven't started university yet and I get a lot of the balloons, but very few of them are worth a high number of points (which is why I'm barely scraping 40).

Welll.... was top 15. Last balloon I hoped would be a good one, but it was another 15 pointer. Last time I looked I reckoned had it ended then I'd have ended up in 15th place. But with a fair amount of time to go I should think others will be getting last balloons and climbing above me.

Disappointing, but I knew this could happen.

I did say a few pages back that I thought it was stingy to give Divines to just the first 15. Yeah, still think that LOL

A golden fleece is not worth the sleep I've lost to do this...

Just got my 11th balloon. Logging in at certain times did not seem to work for me. I work so was unable to stay logged on for long periods of time. My total points was 217. Should have kept everything instead of nothing. If I am lucky no one else will get enough points to stop me from getting the MB. I really do not want another lyre.default smiley (n)default smiley (b)default smiley (li)default smiley xd

I just got an email with the link to the survey for this promo, but it's the link to the 'Take a vacation' survey...? Does anyone else have this problem?

Yep, 16th place and my GF prize gave me 1 star so I got a Heel. Yep, that was sooooo worth loosing sleep for. Maybe next time will be 3rd time lucky in this type of event for me! (I ended up just edged out of the top 15 last time too)

On the other hand... Just opened a few HOPs. Didn't get the blanket (not my day...) but did get the Tears and Timer I didn't get in the event plus a Golden Apple. Is it just me or are HOPs much better value than Fleeces?

I'm on Howrse constantly throughout the day and I never even caught one.

I wasn't a big fan of this. Apart from the fact, that the ufo's didn't seem to be distributed amongst players (i.e. I didn't get a single ufo with a black market item wheras other people got several at a time) it also forced people to stay logged on longer and to play slower.

Just wondering if anyone knows: were the divines the top 15 prizes on other servers, or did they have different numbers of prizes?

I got my MB from this event and then went and bought 20 passes and used 12 to get hippogriff from the golden fleece. I also chose to use the rest on horns of plenty and got zaldia's blanket, a nyx pack, and hera pack. default smiley (7)default smiley (lol)default smiley (y)default smiley (6)

This game was very interesting. I learned a lot of things
I did not know. Each game brings insight into the element
of the operations of the game and how to play it.
