Wow that was a fast week! It feels like the last Status Update came out just yesterday. I got excited here in Stockholm this morning because rain is forecast tomorrow. Why is rain exciting? Because it means it’s warming up finally and the snow is melting away! Soon it will be summer, and here in Sweden they like to say summer’s the best day of the year!
9.3x74R O/U Break Action Rifle
I know everyone will be jumping for joy today, not because of all the chocolate that is still in your system. But because this absolute cannon of a weapon has finally been released, and as per tradition there is a complementary competition to go alongside it’s release. After you have purchased it and warmed the barrels up a little. Let us know your thoughts and feedback on it in this thread here.
Easter Event 2018
Just like an Easter egg, as soon as you see it in front of you it’s gone, well at least it is for me!
Thanks so much to everyone that took part! The statistics are in and there was a staggering 104650 eggs harvested! If you can guess the amount of them that were Silver you can win yourself 750em$, all you have to do is write your guess in the discussion thread here. Closest number wins and the competition closes next Tuesday the 10th at 10am CEST. While you are there please let us know your feedback. What did you enjoy? What do you think we could change next year to make it even better!?
Tropical Podge Competition
Thanks to everyone who participated, we had so many great entries for this competition. I am glad I did not have to pick the winners, because it must have been so hard for the artists to pick only three! However the winners have been selected and in no particular order they are:
Congratulations to the winners, our artists are now busy adding your photos to the wall of the Tropical Lodge and you can expect to see your images hanging on the wall within the next few patches!
What’s on the Lathe?
I am pleased to announce that I am now allowed to confirm we have a new animal in the works. But in traditional Classic style, at this stage, we are only going to be offering you a clue, and here it is!
We might have had a little break through this week with the WRR crash issue, we have found a potential cause and investigation is underway! However we are still asking for your help, This thread here has been set up for all information to be put. We need:
- Where does it happen on the map
- Is it single player, multiplayer or both?
- Is there a specific thing you do when it happens? (Shooting an animal, harvesting, getting a call etc)
All information you think might help is appreciated and we would love you to post in the thread mentioned above.
Rare and Trophy of the Week
This competition has become so popular that we have decided to make it a permanent feature and it’s here to stay for the foreseeable future!
So, if you have shot a rare or high scoring animal from this week and want a chance to win, then share them in the correct thread on our forum, don’t forget to mention the score! Rares go into this thread and trophy animals into this one. We currently don’t have a competition for Non-Typicals, but they go into this thread.
This Week’s Winners
The ‘Trophy of the Week’ is this very nice Reindeer which was shot by Tenbulls . It has a monstrous score of 712.999, congratulations! If you are unsure of what many consider a trophy Reindeer it is anything over the 580-600 scoring mark and upwards.
And the ‘Rare of the Week’ goes to Ronny1379 for this Leucistic Cottontail, which scored 1449. A very sought after rare, congratulations!
This week’s free rotation, which changes tomorrow, lets our guest hunters test their skills against Feral Hog and Banteng. Piccabeen Bay is going to be busy this week!
Have a great week all,
