Gifting or Holiday Gift Giving Competition was an annual event that occurred around the month of December. During the event, you could claim gifts from a Gifting interface as well other players. The players who spent Varium to send gifts could compete on leaderboards and earn rare prizes based on total amounts of Gifts given. The event was discontinued after the 2021 event to give the developers more time to focus on other game features.

Daily Gift Collecting

Claim Prize

During Gifting events, you could claim a unique Daily Gift up to once per day by clicking the "Claim Prize" button on the gifting interface. The prizes ranged from equipment and home items to Credits and Arcade Tokens and typically got better as you collected more. Each year, you could earn an evolving "Yeti for Winter" Achievement based on the number of Daily Gifts claimed during the event.

Yearly Gift Collecting

Gifts given by players were delivered by in-game mail and could contain Credits, Arcade Tokens, equipment, limited-charge Skill Cores, and Mission Items. Sometimes, certain items obtained from Gifts could be used to complete special Missions. An incomplete list of the possible prizes available in the Gift prize pool from year to year can be found at Gift Opening Prizes.

All sellable items obtained through Gifts could be sold for 1000 Credits. The resources accumulated from a year's worth of Gift collecting added up quickly, making it a very lucrative event!

In 2018, a /open100gifts slash command was added to make opening gifts easier. This was replaced at the end of the 2021 event by /open1000gifts. The updated command automatically replaces duplicate items with 1000 Credits, except Cores and Mission Items, and displays a message showing the total number of Credits, items, and Home Items received.

Daily Gift Giving

Starting from the 2018 event, a Daily Leaderboard was added to the Gifting interface that displayed the top 15 gifters in a day. The first place gifter at the end of the day received that year's Secret Package and one tier on the Daily Gift Leader achievement. The top 5 places (including top 1) and anyone who gave 15000 or more Gifts in a day received that year's Silver Secret Package.

Some time after the end of each event, the Secret and Silver Secret Packages would be replaced ("open") with a set of Ultra-Rare prizes as rewards.

During the 2018 event, Secret Package (2018) was retroactively awarded to the players who were in the top 15 of the Yearly Leaderboard before the Daily Leaderboard was introduced on the Omega 1.6.99 release on December 7, 2018. Silver Secret Package (2018) was retroactively awarded to all players who gave more than 15000 Gifts before December 14, 2018.

During the 2021 event, Exalted Daily Gifter was awarded to players who won first place on the Daily Leaderboard from December 3 to December 9, 2021 as compensation for the room cap being lifted. At the end of the 2021 event, the last Gifting event, all players were given Daily Gift Champion, Daily Gift Legend or Daily Gift Supreme Legend Achievement based on the total number of Daily Gift Leader Achievements they had won over the years.

Yearly Gift Giving

During a Gifting event, you could use the Gifting interface or the /buygift325varium slash command to purchase a Gift for 325 Varium. The Gift was mailed to yourself and every other player in the room; the number of players that receive the Gift was counted towards your total count for Gifts given. The room cap was increased from 130 to 150 in 2018, to 175 in 2019, and finally to 200 in 2021 before being removed that same year.

A Gift given within 90 seconds of the last was considered consecutive and counted towards your Gifting Streak. During a Streak, there was a chance to give out a Global Gift with each Gift, which was an additional Gift given to every player logged in on the server. The chance to give out a Global Gift increased at 15 (2%), 30 (4%), 45 (6%), 70 (9%), 100 (12%), 150 (15%), and 200 (20%) Gifts given on a Streak.

Ultra-Rare Achievements could be earned based on the total number of Gifts given and highest Gifting Streak reached during the event.

Yearly Leaderboard

The Gifting interface showed a Yearly Leaderboard that displayed the top players who gave the most Gifts over the course of that year's event.

From 2014 to 2017, the leaderboard had 10 places. Then, all winners received an Ultra-Rare mount while the first place winner was additionally awarded an Ultra-Rare item set from a developer's account.

From 2018, the leaderboard was increased to 15 places. All winners were entitled to an "Epic Wish", a custom item created within the limitations outlined for that year. In addition to the "Epic Wish", the first place winner was given the opportunity to create a completely custom item.

From 2019, winners were granted the ability to give their extra Secret and Silver Secret Packages to other players by request after the end of the event.

At the end of the 2021 event, the last Gifting event, winners were also given Daily Gift Epic Champion, Daily Gift Epic Legend or Daily Gift Supreme Epic Legend based on the total number of Daily Gift Leader Achievements they had won over the years.
