The Easter 2k13 event was Gaia Online's 10th Easter event. It once again featured The Easter Bunny and Diedrich.

OverviewEdit

The Easter Bunny declared war on cuteness after President Diecrich announced that March was to be declared Cutie-Pie month. It was the Anti-Cute Team vs the Cute Team. The event's build began early in March with the a scavenger hunt for puzzle pieces that would reveal a visual of the coming event.

Days ago, Gaian president Diedrich (ugh, still?) declared that March would officially be known as Cutie-Pie Month, a celebration of all things cute and fluffy. But like almost all holiday celebrations in the history of Gaia, something has gone terribly wrong: disgraced robotic mascot Easter Bunny has announced his intent to crush all that is cute and destroy the very concept of cuteness itself!

Since Gaia has gradually deteriorated into a lawless land ruled by the whims of various insane bunnies, citizens must now choose which petty warlord to follow: Diedrich, on the side of cuteness and cheer, or the Easter Bunny, who rules the anti-cute team. Both will offer their own rewards, so choose wisely!

To choose your team and start waging a war of cuteness, visit Gaia's Easter event headquarters:

Site & Forum
  • Hey guys, / Sorry for adding this on late but the response has been greater than we expected for this event so unfortunately I have to add an additional restriction for your egg collecting. From this point forward, eggs will have a defined lifetime where you can collect them. After that point they are no longer good. Currently, their lifetime is set for one hour but we'll be watching things and will adjust the time forward or back as needed. / Sorry again and I hope you're enjoying things so far!
  • If you're only seeing [eggimg],cute,1 or something like that in egg posts, it's likely because you're using Forums Lite. You have to use the regular forums in order to see the eggs so disable Forums Lite in your Gaia Labs settings
  • If you earn an achievement but don't have it granted immediately, give it some time (30-60 minutes). Achievements get backlogged during events due to the high traffic volume so it can take some time. Just continue on your way and occasionally check back on the event landing page and you should eventually be given the achievement.
  • If you run into the "NoPostFound" error, you just have to hit the back button, refresh the page, and click the egg again.

Staff NoticesEdit

Countdown to Easter!

Our annual Easter event is right around the corner and will be here before you know it. To help keep you entertained until it goes live though, we've set up a special "Easter egg" hunt for you. Every day, until the start of the event, we'll be hiding a new puzzle piece in one of the areas related to Gaia Online. Your goal is to find all the pieces of the puzzle and arrange them to form the special event illustration we made for you. Once you do, you'll be able to see a visual representation of our Easter event theme this year and make a mental choice of what you side with. Sorry, there's no item grant for solving this, just the satisfaction of early knowledge and a pretty picture.

Are you up for the challenge? If so, you'll need your empty puzzle board. Fill it with the pieces you find to create the full illustration.

Hints:

  • http://www.gaiaonline.com is not the only place related to Gaia Online
  • Today's piece has already been hidden and a hint for it can be found in what I've already told you above

You have 12 days. Good luck.

Easter Event Updates

Our annual Easter event is in full swing. If you haven't checked it out already, head on over here and start collecting eggs! There have been a couple gameplay changes since the event launched and one main issue with users being unable to play so instead of continuing to just post in threads, I figured this notice would be more effective.

  • If you are having issues with seeing the eggs in the forums (for example: you only see "[eggimg],cute,1" instead of an image) then it's likely because you're using Forums Lite. The eggs will ONLY appear in the regular forum structure so you'll need to disable Forums Lite in your Gaia Lab settings in order to start collecting them.
  • Eggs now have a lifespan so they are only available for a finite time after they're posted. The lifespan is currently set to an hour and so far that seems to be working well but I'll continue watching and adjust the time if needed.
  • Thread conversions now have a cool down effect in place. If an NPC fails to convert a thread, the chance of a conversion post happening again is cut in half for the next hour. If the thread has bad luck and continues to be threatened with conversion and continues to beat it within that hour, the chance is halved again each time. This should hopefully prevent cases where a thread was attacked again and again only seconds/minutes after successfully fighting off a previous attack.

Final Weekend for Easter Event!

That's right, we're coming up on the last weekend for our Easter Event so if you haven't grabbed your items and achievements yet, you better start now! I've increased the chances for both having your thread flipped and having an egg appear so there should be more than enough opportunities for you to finish things off. The event's last day will be Monday, April 1st so make sure you finish everything before then!

Start playing now!

Easter Event Wrap-Up

The eggs have finally all gone bad and players for both sides can now enjoy the fruits of their labor. While it was a hard fought battle, one side did push harder than the other and managed to pull off a come from behind win. So without further delay, the winner of our 2013 Easter event was ... the Anti-Cute team, led by the maniacal Easter Bunny and his army of mechanical rabbots!

It seems though that this victory did not satisfy Easter Bunny's quest to destroy all that is cute in Gaia. After numerous sightings of the rare and elusive Pegacorn Fluff, Easter Bunny carried out a brutal attack against all that were found, leaving its new owners disturbed and saddened with only its soul still left as a memory of what was. All hope is not lost though. A new plan is already in the works to make those souls worth something again. Hang onto them and keep them close, Summer is right around the corner.

If you missed your chance to grab your own Pegacorn Fluff yesterday, you can still pick one up in the Marketplace (search for Mystery Friend) from those who have carelessly thrown them aside. Stocking up won't make a difference though, one soul is all you need. And in case you missed it, you can check out exclusive coverage of Easter Bunny's rampage right here. If you're the type that likes cold, calculating numbers, continue reading to see the final event breakdown for the two sides. If not, then just remember that things aren't over just yet, you'll want to stick around for what we have planned and by the time you've experienced it all, all you'll be able to say is "What. The. Fluff?!"
