Easter2k11 bunnies headergif sm

Diedrich and the Easter Bunny are in a full-on Easter egg finding feud, and each of them wanted Gaians help. There were hidden eggs around Gaia, some easier to find than others. Gaians who scooped up eggs for their team--won Diedrich and Easter Bunny items--by poking around.

Event BeginningEdit

As soon as Gaians signed on to the site they were introduced to the event by receiving a Gaia Achievements badge as well as a hidden bunny.

This just in: while Easter on Gaia is traditionally a time of togetherness and egg-collection, 2011's festivities have been overshadowed by conflict! Diedrich, the eccentric talking Grunny who captured Gaia's heart last year, announced his plans to host the Easter egg hunt this year-- but malevolent mascot The Easter Bunny has returned from seclusion, and he's insisting that the egg hunt is his domain!

This mascot battle has led to a major dilemma: should Gaians participate in the Easter Bunny's egg hunt for the sake of tradition, or risk explosive reprisals by following Diedrich? The choice is yours-- but choose wisely, because you can't change your mind later!

[Choose Diedrich] [Choose Easter Bunny]

As usual, you can also visit our Easter Event forum for some fun and festivity:

A note from the Gaia team - During the egg hunt, we know it's the legendary pinnacle of Internet hilarity to put fake eggs in your posts so people click on them and get frustrated. However, we're petty, fun-hating tyrants and we'll ban the pants off of repeat offenders. Thanks!



  • Apr 22 Easter 2011: The Battle Rages On! [2]

The battle for Easter supremacy rages on! Gaians have collected thousands of eggs for the gregarious, fact-hemorrhaging Diedrich and that beloved cybernetic madman, the Easter Bunny-- our survey indicates that Diedrich is in the lead, with 49,112 eggs collected. The Easter Bunny is close behind, with 46,792.

If you still haven't chosen a side, now's the time-- both parties are offering their own event items to the dedicated hunters who find all of their hidden eggs. Plus, the team that collects the most eggs will get an exclusive victory item!

  • Apr 27 Easter 2011: The Hunt is Over! [3]

Gaia's Easter event has concluded, and we have our winner! Although slightly more people chose to be on Diedrich's team, the gregarious Grunny's followers just didn't have the gumption to achieve victory-- the Easter Bunny's team collected 4,213,443 eggs, while Diedrich's team only found 3,915,944.

The Easter Bunny's followers will be rewarded with a free victory item. However, Diedrich's team fought valiantly, so his followers will get a little consolation prize, too.

For the last word in this year's Easter rumble, check out this mini-comic:

  • May 05 The zOMG! Easter Event is Here! [4]

Great news, everyone: zOMG!'s 2012 Easter Event is super early! Yeah, that's our story, and we're sticking to it.

There's a bunch of fun stuff to do, including new badges, an egg hunt across the game's combat zones and some new recipes that let you craft some exclusive event items. Once in a while, the eggs will even hatch a little peeping buddy that will follow you around for a little while.

To join the extremely early Easter fun, head to zOMG! and start hunting eggs. It only lasts through May 18th, so get in while you can.

Play zOMG!


Event ConclusionEdit

The winner was the Easter Bunny with team E-Corp. The Easter Bunny proudly boost of his victory but Diedrich feels that he truly won due to being able partake of millions of leftover eggs.

GameplayEdit

  • This event involved doing various task to collect little bunnies, which would then accumulate around the avatar. Collecting 40 bunnies would reward Gaians with three Gaia Achievement badges and a simplified item version of the bunnies.
  • The egg hunting event involved Gaians choosing a side to collect eggs for, the amount of eggs resulted in two reward items from the team leader. The maximum amount of Eggs that could be collected on both teams was 255.

Team leader QuotesEdit

[NPC] Diedrich

Did you know you've collected 1 Easter Egg?

It's a verifiable fact! But I need 49 more Eggs before I can give you this big special super-secret prize!


Did you know you've collected 50 Easter Eggs?

It's a true fact the Easter Bunny is neither a bunny nor easter! To prove it, you need to help gather more eggs than that pretender's followers! 50 is good but 200 is better! If I collect more eggs than the Easter Bunny everyone that helped me will receive an additional, special prize! Go do it! Bye! Adios! Toodle-oo!


Did you know you've collected 51 Easter Eggs?

It's a verifiable fact! But I need 149 more Eggs before I can give you this big special super-secret prize!


Did you know you've collected 200 Easter Eggs?

Did you know that by collecting 200 eggs for me, you have earned your place in the Grunny Pantheon of Amazitude on Mount Olympus? This is wonderful, but I need more help! Recruit your friends, because The Rabbot's followers have already collected 00000 more eggs than me! Did you know that if our side wins, we get a super secret exclusive prize that the other side doesn't?


Did you know you've collected 201 Easter Eggs?

It's a verifiable fact! I already gave you my glasses and suit, but for the firstest time ever, this isn't goodbye! Keep finding more eggs, and when I beat the Robobunny, we'll win a super secret awesome prize!


[NPC] Easter Bunny

'Your proficiency in acquisition has been noted: 1 Easter Egg!

The grunny won't even know what hit him. I require 49 further Eggs before I reward your loyalty.


Your proficiency in acquisition has been noted: 50 Easter Eggs!

Harvest 150 more eggs; 200 in total and you shall be rewarded commensurately. Additionally, should you help me collect more eggs than the foul grunny Diedrich, our side will be rewarded an additional, special prize.


Your proficiency in acquisition has been noted: 51 Easter Eggs!

The grunny won't even know what hit him. I require 149 further Eggs before I reward your loyalty.


Your proficiency in acquisition has been noted: 200 Easter Eggs!

Your talents are overwhelming; my joy matrix has short-circuited in acknowledgement of you fetching 200 eggs. Now, your array of associates must be contacted to help. I must collect more eggs than Diedrich, and he has collected 00000 more eggs. We shall receive an additional reward only if I collect the most! An exclusive prize to lord over the losing side, who shall receive nothing!


Your proficiency in acquisition has been noted: 201 Easter Eggs!

The grunny won't even know what hit him. I shall not reward you for any further eggs you collect, but they will count toward my final total; should I obtain more eggs at the end, your reward will be tremendous.

Criticism & Compliments:Edit

Since egg hunting has become quite regular for Gaia Easters the review for it this year was mostly negative for the egg hunting as Gaians felt it took too long to collect the amount of eggs needed for a reward and also support their team, which was a new part for an Easter event. Even though the appearance of an egg was random and functioned the same for all, some Gaians thought that the amount of time before another egg to appear was spaced too far, even mistaking the process of collecting being exclusive to the Easter forum. This is false criticism as egg collecting was site wide except for Guilds, which events in general never included the guild feature. There was also criticism over the amount of eggs each side was collecting for which team, each side believing that the event was rigged in favor of which ever character was not chosen.

The collection of bunnies was complimented for being clever and interactive, it was a new aspect to Gaia events and incorporated an overlay. The review for the items were mixed as they were not Easter themed compared to previous items.

Glitches & ProblemsEdit

  • One of the forty-four bunnies (the Hipster Bunny) was invisible for 3 days due to a minor link error.
  • The obtaining of the 'Like Bunny' caused confusion due to its design holding the Facebook logo and color. Gaians interpreted that the bunny was gotten by connecting their Gaia account to their Facebook account, clicking the Facebook square on the navigation bar, or liking a thread. As it turned out the bunny was gotten by clicking on the Starz Anime Player page, however, Gaians outside of the USA noticed the page would not load for them.
  • From April 20th onward there were reports of a slight miss count of eggs. When an egg was collected the total on the reward page would show one less egg compared to the event forum banner, it usually took another egg to have the real total which was likely the reward page total.

Easter Event Over

Hey guys, the Easter event has (obviously) ended. Our team of Advanced Decimal Manipulation Engineers (Team ADME) is working hard to sum up the event and declare a winner. When they finish we will award the winning team their item and announce it to all the world MUAHAHAHAHAHA *cough* *cough*...

The item grants will probably take a couple of days but once complete you may stand proud as Easters victor.

Easter Rewards are Going Out

Now that the winners of the Easter Event have been announced, the victors are receiving their spoils! The Monarchs of Easter should be granted within the day to everyone who collected eggs for the Easter Bunny. To commemorate the losers' participation in the event, those who foolishly followed Diedrich to failure shall get runners-up prizes.

  • Apr 28

Easter Rewards Have Gone Out

Congratulations to the robo-winners, and better luck next time to the small, green, valedictory runners-up. All of the secondary prizes for participating in the Easter Egg hunt have been granted, and those lucky enough to have been caught in the crossfire when the Easter Bunny was spraying additional prizes get to keep them. Congratulations all around on a successful Easter event.

  • Apr 28

Hidden Easter Bonus!

The Easter Bunny and Diedrich have issued a joint statement alerting users that some of their secondary rewards were accidentally hidden along with the Easter eggs, and they need to go looking for them. Any users that should have gotten their Fail Book and Easter Crown but did not will receive, but not today. Probably tomorrow. Enjoy!

  • Apr 30

Fat Diedrich and the Easter Bunny have issued a joint statement alerting all Gaians that the second batch of Easter items have gone out, and everyone that participated has been given their items. Have a good weekend!

TriviaEdit

  • Originally the idea for the event did not include the robo Easter Bunny, as Gaia Staff believed him to be an unpopular character among Gaians. However, a fan thread and suggestions convinced staff enough to incorporate him into the event. It is unknown how the original event would have gone if not for Gaian influence.
  • In the Mini-Comic, "Bunnyfire of the Vanities", the scenario plays out similar to the Christmas 2k6 event, wherein a character volunteered to do the task for an Event due to the Holiday character not being present. In that case it was Zurg Alien 02 who played Santa Claus due to Santa being a cow at the time.
  • In the Mini-Comic, "Diedrich Everlasting", it is discovered that Diedrich may possibly be impervious to damage and maybe death.
  • Gaians usually associate the robo Easter Bunny with explosions due to his handing out of exploding Clock Eggs during the Easter 2k8 event. This event also included the item Robotic Bunny Ears exploding when a Gaian posed a certain way.
  • This is the fifth time for the Quote Transmitted Disease to appear. The bunnies collected would accumulate around the avatar, the bunnies would also shift positions every time the page was refreshed.
  • The Easter eggs were done in theme of which ever team was chosen. For this Easter event the eggs appeared near the top of a forum or thread, instead of scattered around in various direction. Having the eggs near the top was an attempt to prevent fake egg scamming.
  • A common rumor and fast spread action that happens during Easter egg hunting is the trigger / keyword word rumor and the timed rumor. The trigger rumor starts off with a few threads by Gaians stating that eggs will appear if Easter related words are typed. This action is proven false as the eggs appear randomly all over the site and no Easter event has ever had a trigger word for an egg to appear.
  • The timed rumor comes from Gaians believing that a certain amount of time must pass before collecting an egg. This is proven false as eggs can appear randomly at any moment and even one after another if the user did the Click here to return instead of right clicking on the egg to open a new window/tab and closing it, thus not knowing if another egg would have been present.
