  • Apr 4 Easter 2012: Grunnygeddon! [1]

Gaia's 2012 Easter event is here! Last Easter, Diedrich gorged himself on leftover eggs-- his body weight skyrocketed, turning him into a fleshy mound of Grunny dough! This caused his unusual reproductive system to kick in, and ever since that he's been uncontrollably popping out babies. You can check out his detailed explanation here:

Read Diedrich's Comic

You'll probably find some of his offspring floating around the site. If you catch them, Diedrich would be much obliged if you'd turn them in to a reputable adoption center.

But the Easter Bunny is no fan of Diedrich, since the mad Grunny keeps trying to steal his Easter thunder. The Easter Bunny has his own sinister idea of what to do with the Grunny spawn, which you can see in this comic:

It's up to you whether you help Diedrich's offspring or humanely dispose of them. Either way, you'll be rewarded with plenty of great Easter event items! To get started, just head over to our Grunnygeddon page:

Grunnygeddon Flash Space

Just wanted to let everyone know we're aware of the issues with the flash space. I'm sorry we weren't able to get this resolved today but plan to keep digging tomorrow. If for whatever reason we aren't able to get this addressed by the end of this week we'll redistribute those Diedrich's to the other activities so the event items may still be collected.

Edit 04/05 12:40 PDT

After many optimizations and adding an additional game server, the space is now in a playable state. During peak hours or in very crowded room there may still be a bit of lag but it won't be as bad as it was at launch.

Thank you for you patience and have fun!

Grunnygeddon Grants

Wanted to update everyone on how the granting for the event works as I forgot to mention it at launch and is now causing some confusion.

Only three two three of each item type is claimable in the event. After that instead of being granted the item you will be granted, from least amount of Diedrichs to most 50, 100, 250, 500 gold respectively. I apologize for the confusion and hope you guys are enjoying the event!

The event is currently scheduled to run until the 18th.

Edited by CarbonPhyber: We've confirmed with testing that the number of claimed items is 3. After the third claimed item, you will get gold. The code was slightly confusing so a previous edit of this DevAlert was wrong.

zOMG Easter Event

The zOMG! easter event is open! It'll stay open until the same day as the main site Easter event. There are no new items, just a repeat of last year. Same bugs as last year too. But the eggs, golden eggs, and cheeps should all be there.

Happy hunting!

Event ending soon

Hey everyone, the Grunnygeddon event will be ending this Wednesday around noon PDT. If you're still missing some event items, this is your last chance!

Rare Diedrich drop rates have been increased across all the activities. The frequency of the scavenger hunt has also been increased. Use this time to grab the remaining Diedrichs you need for those items!

Edit 11:26 AM
At last count the scores were as follows:
Diedrichs Homogenated: 39062 (Easter Bunny)
Diedrichs Saved: 50929 (Diedrich)

...Also if you happen to have way too many Diedrichs of a particular color that you just want to get rid of, it is now possible to redeem at least 50 for a little gold on the event page.
