    We are going to be hosting Christmas specials starting Sunday 12/22 til Saturday 12/28.

    $30 will be awarded as donator rank to the winner of the lottery for December 25th 2013 courtesy of Nish. Please note the $30 reward won't be applied instantly to your account. It will be done at our earliest convenience.

    The lottery jackpot will start with: (Courtesy of Serious TTT Server)
    Sun 12/22: 10,000 points
    Mon 12/23: 10,000 points
    Tue 12/24: 20,000 points
    Wed 12/25: 50,000 points + $30 donator rank
    Thu 12/26: 10,000 points
    Fri 12/27: 10,000 points
    Sat 12/28: 10,000 points

    That's 120,000 points that is being given away through the lottery.

    Chances of fun rounds happening will be increased to 90% during that week.
    On Christmas Day (12/25), the prizes for fun rounds will be doubled. (200pts for last man standing, 200pts for most kills, 40pts per kill)

    Also we are having a special event on Christmas Eve (12/24) giving away $100 worth of donator rank courtesy of an anonymous donator from our community.
    Every hour starting from 4PM Pacific Time, we are going to host a fun round where the winners will win $20 worth of donator rank and/or 5,000 points.

    This is the current planned schedule for the special event (Times listed are in Pacific timezone):
    12/24 - 4PM: West Server
    12/24 - 5PM: East Server
    12/24 - 6PM: West Server
    12/24 - 7PM: East Server
    12/24 - 8PM: West Server

    Prizes for these events are:
    Last Man Standing: +$20 towards your donator rank
    Most Kills: 5,000 points

    Please note that the prizes for the special event ($20 & 5k points) will be given out manually by myself so it wont be instantly applied to your account. I'll be recording Steam IDs and applying the awards as soon as possible.


    An additional $50 was donated by Ardey to be given out as prize. I'm going to do 5 fun rounds which will award $10 for Last Man Standing & 2,500 points for Most Kills at these times:
    12/24 - 4:30PM: West Server
    12/24 - 5:30PM: East Server
    12/24 - 6:30PM: West Server
    12/24 - 7:30PM: East Server
    12/24 - 8:30PM: West Server

    If there is a popular demand for the special event to be hosted on Christmas Eve (12/24) then we can go ahead and do that.

    This is a great idea! Maybe we could do a New Years Rockin' Eve event, as well!

    I'll let the vote run til tomorrow 6pm but it looks like the special event will be held on 12/24 instead of 12/25. I'll change the original post once the vote is done.

    I have changed the Special Event to be on Christmas Eve (12/24). Also Ardey donated $50 towards the special event to be awarded to players through fun rounds. Check original topic for updated info.

    I think it may work better to space it out differently. As it is, it's just a cluster of fun rounds(and you aren't giving West 2 any love!) people are going to be hopping between each server.

    Suggested revision (legend, G=$20 & 5k, S=$10 & 2.5k):

    12/24 - 12PM: West Server - G
    12/24 - 12PM: East Server - G
    12/24 - 2PM: West Server - S
    12/24 - 2PM: East Server - S
    12/24 - 4PM: West Server - G
    12/24 - 4PM: East Server - G
    12/24 - 6PM: West Server - S
    12/24 - 6PM: East Server - S
    12/24 - 8PM: West Server - G
    12/24 - 8PM: East Server - S

    This way, it covers a larger portion of time so as to let more people get a chance. It also clumps each event into the same time on both servers so that people won't be changing servers to get in on each round.

    I also understand the reason you had it close together and separated the times, to allow for you to change servers and your time constraints. But if you can get enough admins to take a certain time from that list, we can hop on the server, force the fun round, screenshot the results + steamIDs, and send those to you.
