Do you feel depressed by this title now? Fear not!
Season 5 might be in hiatus right now after it's first half, but Legends of Equestria is here with another Open Server Weekend to got us covered and bring us over the drought!
And where an OSW is, there is Hide & Seek not far! That's right, Scootaloo throws Hide & Seek events again!
Once again she is calling for ponies to play her favourite game with her in Canterlot and her hometown Ponyville!
And this time it's going to be special, because we celebrate our
This upcoming Open Server Weekend, it will be the fifth time that I hold Hide & Seek events in Legends of Equestria. It all started in August last year, a little more than a year ago, when I held my first three Hide & Seek events:Click here for nostalgia if you were there the first time!
Some things have changed since our humble beginnings, I added Ponyville as location after discovering that there are more and better hideouts
and I even made a special event the last time where Starlight Glimmer in pony led the event and brought everypony wonderful equality!
But the core of our event is still the same; playing Hide & Seek and having fun together! And since it is our first little anniversary now, I'm going to do something special this time too, to celebrate both our 5th Anniversary as well as the first half of Season 5:
Season 5 has shown us many new, awesome ponies so far, ranging from a fanatic dictator, over a tree-hugging hippie whose head is always high
in the clouds, to a bookworm who gives Twilight a run for her money.
And these new, awesome ponies shall be the spotlight in our Hide & Seek event on Saturday!
We want to try to gather around as many new ponies from the show as possible, so, if you like Starlight Glimmer, Moon Dancer and Co., come as your favourite pony from the new cast and show us your best impressions of one of these ponies (roleplaying as the pony of your choice is not required, but encouraged!). Come as any of these ponies and show us what you can:Starlight Glimmer, Sugar Belle, Party Favor, Night Glider, Double Diamond, Sunshower, Open Skies, Clear Skies, Fluffy Clouds, Trouble Shoes, Record High, Yuma Spurs, Penny Ante, Tree Hugger, Tropic Treat (Tropical Dream), March Gustysnows, Quiet Gestures, The Manehattan Delegate, Minuette, Twinkleshine, Lemon Hearts, Moon Dancer.
Some of these ponies are background ponies, if you don't know their exact look, search for their (placeholder) names on Derpibooru!
Every player who attends the Saturday Hide & Seek event, no matter as which pony, be it Season 5 or OC Pony, will be able to participate in a raffle with a complete full body armor as prize, because anniversaries mean presents! Update:
So, now that I have checked which new items and equipment the sales ponies in the game have, I can give you more information about the armor that is the prize for the raffle! Originally, I just wanted to take a bronze armor for it, because this was the most expensive and valuable item Legends of Equestria had in the past OSWs. But this has changed now. Several new armors were added to the game, complete with level requirements and stats and they are all a lot more shiny and useful than the bronze armor!
So, without further ado, here's the prize for the raffle:
Everypony who attends the Hide & Seek event tomorrow on Saturday at 08:00 PM EST, can win a shiny and noble Golden Armor!
Scoots fought brave for that armor in the mines, endured the strong attacks of Level 5 Lantern Monsters and even managed it to break the spawn rate of the monsters in the first room, by killing monsters until no new ones spawned anymore.
The result was not only a jump to Level 13, but also more than 10,000 Bits and 102 rubies, which made her suddenly richer than Filthy Rich, and so she could afford the valuable Golden Armor that you can win tomorrow!
Look for the stats of the armor right here:
Have Fun and Good Luck to all participants! [/Update End]
Once we've brought the event on Saturday to a close, we will head to Sugarcube Corner for the afterparty with cookies, cupcakes and dancing to the best pony music!
Just make sure to prepare your own playlists just in case, as we can't exactly tell if there will be music again like last time!
If you came as a pony from Season 5 to the event, you can of course switch back to your OC or any pony you usually play as for the party!
But now for the most important part, the times of our events! I don't want to keep you in suspense much longer, so here we go:What:
Playing Hide & Seek and finding partners to do soWhere:
Train Station in CanterlotWhen:
Friday and Saturday at 08:00 PM EST, Sunday at 04:00 PM ESTUpdate 2:
In the light of current events, there will be a change to the player count for my Hide & Seek events from now on. For all my events from now on, there will be a max player count of ten per event. If you come too late, you can't play in the event or you have to wait if a slot gets free by someone getting kicked and not returning after a while. Which means, you are well advised to come fast and early to the event if you want to play with Scootaloo!
The reasons for that decision can be found here:http://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?topic=15013.msg933218#msg933218
And I repeat again, this is NOT affecting the raffle. Everyone who comes to the event, no matter if he gets in the ten players or not, is eligible to participate in the raffle, be it the first ten that attend or 5,000 ponies that come later!
And of course, no matter if you were able to play in the event tomorrow, you can come to the afterparty in Sugarcube Corner. There's no limit for the party![/Update 2 End]Update 3:
So, I have to apologize for something. Apparently, I derped again. There was supposed to be an afterparty of the second Hide & Seek event in Sugarcube Corner and I forgot about it. First my timezone confusion at the first event, now this mishap.
Seems like this is the weekend of derps for my Hide & Seek events. And that at the 5th Anniversary.
Anyway, I'm making this after party anyway (even when now not everypony will be able to come, because of the unexpected announcement.
), after all, it is a special occasion!
Expect it to happen at 01:00 PM EST! Time will be two hours, so that we can end the afterparty roughly one hour before the last Hide & Seek event starts, to give you all some time before it to get ready and to finish other stuff![/Update 3 End]
I will also split the events again, so that we will play one half in Canterlot and the other half in Ponyville. And, of course, even if no event is happening right now, feel free to use the train station in Canterlot as meeting point to find players, at any time, on any server!
The server for the events will be, like last time, Griffonia, as it proofed itself to be very stable. But as always, it's subject to change, so keep an eye on the in-game chat and this thread for announcements!
And that's it, folks! Another new round of exciting Hide & Seek events lies ahead of us and with that, a weekend full of fun!
Come all and join Scootaloo for chilled rounds of Hide & Seek and bring all your fun and cheer with you to make the 5th Anniversary of her Hide & Seek events a special one that she will never forget!
Scootaloo is waiting for you! See you in Equestria! It's time to wrap these events and bring them to a conclusion. I am sorry, but I won't be able to offer full reports on these events.
I want to conclude them before the LAR starts because then I will host Hide & Seek events regularly and won't have time anymore to conclude older events.
But I still have some stuff to show you guys.....
I recorded all three events during this OSW and link them for you below, so that you won't forget the great time we had:
Scootaloo's Hide & Seek Event 1
Scootaloo's Hide & Seek Event 2 (Anniversary Raffle!)
Scootaloo's Hide & Seek Event 2 (Game)
And I have more! Since I can't do proper reports, I have uploaded all of the screenshots of the three events into albums on Imgur:Scootaloo's Hide & Seek Event 1 screenshotsScootaloo's Hide & Seek Event 2 screenshots (Raffle and Game)Scootaloo's Hide & Seek Event 3 screenshotsAnd here are, of course, the group pictures we made at the end of the events:And that wraps up the events!
