Halloween: Trick or Treat 10/13/23

Happy Friday 13th!

We're thrilled to share some fantastic updates coming to the game this Halloween.
From the Trick or Treat event to major performance optimizations, we've got a lot in store for you!

Seasonal UI

Praised be the return of the halloween UI! Both game and web have been given a beautiful orange touch.
Here is a quick showcase:

Trick or Treat Event

The Trick or Treat event is back with a twist! Play Touchdown, Deathmatch, Chaser or Battle Royale to collect candy.
You'll get 2 candies every 5 minutes, but you must meet activity requirements and complete a match to earn them.
Collect 10 candies to spin the slot machine, and you could win:

  • x5 Sweet Candy Box
  • x5 Bitter Candy Box
  • 15,000
  • 10,000
  • 6,000
  • 2,500

Speaking of PEN, it's finally time to talk about the much-anticipated PEN Exchange!

PEN Exchange

For those sitting on a pile of PEN, your digital wealth is about to become far more valuable.
You can now exchange PEN for ZP. This new feature breathes life back into PEN, making it more useful than ever.
We hope this also motivates players to regularly finish their daily and weekly challenges!

Premium Challenges

We're also rolling out premium challenges in the coming weeks (these will not replace the existing limited challenges).
They will be similar to daily/weekly challenges offering the ability for rerolls but yielding better rewards.

Chaser Inactivity Protection Update

Good news! We're flipping the script on inactivity in Chaser mode. Now, inactive Chasers will take 10 damage per tick, ensuring faster-paced games and more fun for everyone.

HUD Disable Command

Film-makers rejoice! You can now disable the in-game HUD almost entirely for all your cinematic needs.
Unfortunately this will only work in Touchdown and Deathmatch modes and does not disable the radar.
The command can be used by typing hud_enable 0 into the F11 console. To turn the HUD back on, you may type hud_enable 1.

Website Performance Boost

We're excited to announce that we've overhauled our website, making it blazing fast! You'll experience quicker load times, smoother navigation, and an overall enhanced user experience. This major update promises to make your time on our platform even more enjoyable.

Major Performance Improvements

Lastly, we've optimized performance for larger rooms by tweaking text rendering. While the text might look a bit different, the trade-off is significantly improved performance. We'll consider further visual adjustments based on your feedback.

That's all for now. We're eager to hear what you think. Enjoy the game, and have a spooktacular Friday 13th and Halloween season!
