Mardi Gras 2023


Laissez les bon temps rouler, Hunters!

Mardi Gras is almost upon us. It sounds like an excellent excuse to make a lot of noise and mess doesn’t it? Join in the fun with a Mission and 3 tiered comps over the space of a week and the Community Campaign. That’s right, a rising tide lifts all ships so team up as a community to slay enough Wood Grouse. You’ll see a bar for community prizes on the mission pop-up (use the banner in the launcher or on the website). Harvest at least 30 Wood Grouse to qualify, slaughter more to fill the bar and gain all your prizes. You do not need to play in multi or single-player, it’s up to you how you do your slaying. Gender does not matter. Any Wood Grouse harvested in the EHR will count.

Participate for the prizes, the trophies, and the glory!  All hunters with enough Wood Grouse at the end of February the 21st will win Community Prizes!

In order to take part in the event, you will have to click on the big banner you will find in the Launcher (or Website) home page:


Read on and familiarize yourself with the rules of the event.


Duration: 7 days

Start: 15 February 2023 (Wednesday) – morning

End:  21 February 2023 (Tuesday) – 23.59 UTC



The more Wood Grouse the Community harvests, the more in-game prizes each player is rewarded. This is how the prize pool looks:




This year’s mission is called Party Animals

Let’s get this celebration on the road! We’ve never done a Mardi Gras event so I have to admit we are woefully underprepared for it. We, er, don’t have a budget for decorations (although we do have a lot of Ginger Ale, recently liberated from Doc’s cellar), so we’ll be asking our Hunters to find a few things for us. I don’t know about you, but when I think of Mardi Gras, I picture loads of colour, feathers, masks, maybe some antler maracas, and of, course food. Let’s start there and see what else occurs to us.

The mission will last through the event’s duration from the 15th February to 21st February .

Completing it will earn the hunter the following rewards:



Completing Competitions won’t earn you anything special for the campaign, except that warm fuzzy feeling of accomplishment, and isn’t that enough? That and a shot at some em$ and a trophy, of course.

You’ll also notice that the second competition in the series is a little different; the difficulty scales for the tiers. Let us know what you think of it.

Prizes for the competitions look like this:


Each competition comes with 7 tiers based on your Hunter Score:



What would a game be without rules?

We have one simple rule for our events: No exploitation of existing game mechanics to gain an advantage. All winners’ hunts will be checked by EW staff prior to prizes being rewarded, and the decision will be final.

In case of exploits usage, EW has a right to disqualify the player from this event.


And what would an Event be without sales? We’re not sure, but we do know that we’d get nasty messages if we skipped them, so we’ve made sure to put sales in.

Make sure to check out the Sales section to see the full list!


That’s all folks, any questions, feel free to post them below.

Enjoy all!
