The Data Node One has released MXO Patch Notes for Episode 3.3. Let the Holiday Festivities begin... in a war ravaged world run by machines...
inter Holiday: December 20, 2005 through January 17, 2006
It's time to celebrate the first ever Winter Holiday Celebration in The Matrix Online! During this period, snow will be falling in the Mega City and Snowman and Holiday Helper Vendors will be around to help you get into the holiday spirit.
Four types of Snowman Vendors can be found in each District with different types of Snowballs for sale. (Icy, Slushy, Powdery, and Rocky.)
Holiday Helper Vendors, outside Mega City clubs, will trade Holiday and Party hats to players for one of each type of Snowball.
Equip a Red or Green Holiday Hat to put your RSI in the "Festive" state. Players in the "Festive" state can throw and be targeted by Snowballs.
Snowballs can be "thrown" by activating them from the Action panel or the hotbar. Hitting another player with a Snowball reduces the stability of the equipped Holiday Hat.
When Holiday Hats lose all stability, they disappear. Players can stage snowball fights where "last hat standing" wins.
Black, Silver, and Gold Party Hats can be worn and activated to create flying confetti and party sound effects.
Special gifts for all good little redpills: 100,000 $i. The effect: Priceless.
