    Ho-ho-ho-ho!
    Christmas season is right arround the corner and this year the Spirit of Christmas will also be in our CSS:ZE-Server!
    Starting on 1st December at 0:01 GMT+1 this Event is going to last for more than a month until 6th January 23:59 GMT+1.

    During this time random presents will spawn inbetween the humans on ALL MAPS. You can collect these presents by shooting them. Don't worry, if someone shoots a present, the whole human team will be rewarded for it.

    So what do I get with those presents?
    There are certain Milestones you can achieve by collecting the respective amount of presents for each Milestone.

    Infecting someone as a zombie or getting infected yourself will leave a random small christmas ornament behind.

    Grenade Skins: 75 Presents
    Your thrown nades will be replaced with a random small christmas ornament.

    Player Skins: 250 Presents
    You will unlock the following 3 skins via !zclass.

    How about the ZM skin? Is it like the normal, fast or tank ZM? (Or like the VIP)

    I might re-adjust the amount of presents needed for each milestone depending how the first days play out.

    It's the first time Neon try this kind of Event
    So yeah people already have a large ammount of present but the value can be still change, he didnt know people will get present that fast
    At least he's trying to bring something different in the community instead of our current normal Event

    Its working well I think, it gives an extra (free) incentive to play on the server.

    Even though its funny when people shoot the presents during boss fights instead of the boss :feelsamazingman:Unloze has its priorities right

    First of all thanks to @ChivasPL for telling about a nasty little bug. If you unlock the skin now, you dont have to select it again randomly on map change via !zclass.

    I may increase the amount of presents needed a bit, but I am not quite sure yet. It was never meant to be a reward only for the top players, but for the normal playerbase.
    Also: https://unloze.com/season/

    Edit: Playerskins now unlock at 250 presents!

    Update 3: As soon as a Zombie touches a present it gets removed instantly without any reward for the human team.

    Alright, I am a bit late, but I finally managed to hand out the VIP rewards.

    The Top 5 Collectors are:

    1. Alcolo Oasis 2788
    2. ChivasPL 2321
    3. FroZeeNN 1669
    4. Feach 1493
    5. Qhs mesrine 1386

    You can still see your own performance here: https://unloze.com/season/

    Overall 4158 players collected 156605 Presents which is ~38 Presents per player.

    710 (~17%) players collected only one single present.

    927 (~22%) players unlocked the Infection Effect.
    418 (~10%) players unlocked the Grenade Skins.
    139 (~3%) players unlocked the Player Skins.


    I hope you enjoyed it. I am still open for feedback for future events like this.

    It was a fucking brutal and enjoyable event, Thank you Neon for your time and effort in this. This should be actually a 'thing' for our community.
