Holiday Gift Giving Competition
Holiday Gift Giving Competition is an annual event that occurs around the month of December. For the duration of the event, players may claim one free gift per day from the gifting interface that may contain equipment, house items, an Arcade Token, or Credits, and earn an Ultra-Rare evolving achievement based on the number of gifts claimed during the event.
During the event, players can use the gifting interface or the slash command /buygift325varium to give themselves and every other player in the room a Gift for 325 Varium. The room cap was increased from 130 to 150 in 2018, to 175 in 2019, and finally to 200 in 2021 before being removed the same year.
Each gift given within 90 seconds of the previous one increases your Gifting Streak. During a Gifting Streak, there is a chance to give out a Global Gift (max. 20%) during each normal gift, which is an additional gift given to every player on the server. The chance to give out a Global Gift increases at 15, 30, 45, 70, 100, 150 and 200 gifts given on a streak.
Ultra-Rare evolving achievements are awarded to the gifter based on the number of gifts given and highest Gifting Streak obtained during the event.
Gifts given by players are delivered by in-game mail and may contain Credits, Arcade Tokens, armors, weapons, Skill Cores and special Mission items. A comprehensive list of the possible prizes available in the Gift prize pool from year to year can be found here. Items obtained through gifting can be sold for 1000 credits. The /open100gifts slash command can be used to make opening gifts easier.
In the gifting interface, there is a leaderboard for the players who gave the most gifts over the course of that year's event.
Until 2017, the leaderboard displayed the top 10 overall gifters. Then, each player finishing on the leaderboard received an Ultra-Rare unique mount and the first place gifter was awarded an Ultra-Rare item taken from a developer's account.
Starting in 2018, the leaderboard was increased to display the top 15 gifters. Each player finishing on this leaderboard receives an Epic Wish, a custom item created within the limitations outlined by the developers that year. In addition to the Epic Wish, the first place winner is given the opportunity to create a completely custom item with prize code replicas.
Starting in 2019, players finishing on this leaderboard were also granted the option to give their extra packages to players of their choosing after the end of the event.
Starting in 2018, a daily leaderboard was added to the gifting interface that displays the top 15 gifters in a day. The first place gifter at the end of the day receives the Secret Package and one tier on the Daily Gift Leader achievement. The top five places or anyone who gives 15000 or more gifts receive the Silver Secret Package.
