I'm about to go have dinner with my family, so you can expect a post about the hunt when I get back.


Enjoy your Easter dinner, bud!

Will it be on the map in-game, or will it be in the forum map post?

Who puts the egg in? the map maker or you?

Great question==can you just go to game finder and browse the maps--then the short time frame makes more sense. The family thing completely makes sense.

Have a Happy Easter all

The map will be universal - wherever the map is located, it will be seen (except for threads)

By except for threads do you mean threads as in this: viewtopic.php?f=358&t=86074
Or like this, just a stand alone? (post 3): viewtopic.php?f=90&t=167345
or all together? (Sorry for my insolence, lol)

Best strategy seems to be to go to the "Browse maps" feature

Alright, guys, how does CC Time: 2012-4-11 14:00:00 to CC Time: 2012-4-11 16:30:00 sound? I wanted to do USA afternoon so that we wouldn't leave out all of our European friends.

The Game Settings option should be changed to Large. Eggs will be in games finished, too.

Why not give us a day so ALL can participate... I would like to participate but I cannot since its at 2 am for me.

no offense but when doing events they should all be around the clock so all can participate if wanted, not just the americans and europians.

Well, I don't mind the date/start time. But 2½ gours = 150 minutes, i.e. if trying to find all 10 eggs one has 45 seconds to look at each of the 200 maps (including browsing the maps, taking notes trying to send a PM). It's a fun thing, but impossible. Why not 24 hours if you want to give people a shoot at all 10?

I think that is plenty of time. It's not supposed to be easy.

And as far as catering to US/Europeans, they do different events at different times all the time. Sometimes they work for me and sometimes they don't. This one will work for me. If it was 2 hours later, I wouldn't be able to. It just happens that way.

Well, it's not. For example, it took me maybe 1-2 minutes to find the egg on the Battle for Iraq map (first post in this thread), and then I knew there was an egg there somewhere. It's simply not possible to browse map by map (200) spending less than 45 seconds per map.

All I am getting at is the games on CC are all about making them as fair as possible so everyone has an even chance... why not for events like this too? let everyone have a even chance, or lets change the times to this event to please our asian users and so that the west has to wake up at 2 am.
