# 1 Winter Event

Nice and Fun Improvements.

Live Snowmen to fight.

Second race (not sure how to run it).

And plenty of snowballs.



But why is the only way to buy items is through the Lobi Store?

That really takes the fun out of the event if it costs you real money to enjoy it.

.
the second race as in the PvP race?
You go to the far left on the map, to a platform that says START.
Wait til a race timer shows, select join race.

Go west of the main gazebo, up a hill lined by blue flags and you'll find the race start area, which has an option to join the race when the event is on.

I just ran it.

Stupid that I had to wait over an hour for it. And didn't get a single reward for doing it.

The sad truth is that money is the Ultimate End Game Goal for Cryptic and PWE when it comes to STO and that is not a bad thing, I mean they?ve got to show a profit with it or it won?t be worth keeping around.

So is the race (the one for the pictures) just the same as last year?
I had a feeling it might be a bit harder so you would not win it as much and had to spend money on lock boxes to make up the short fall of pictures etc.


And if you don't win can you re-run it again or have to wait a day to run it again?

Seems contradictory when they are giving out a free starship.

But you think you could get those store items without having to purchase lobi, like last year.

You fight the Snowmen to get the Collectibles. Which happens every half hour, at the Top and Bottom of the hour.

If that's the case then count me out on picking any of them up.
There are boxes you can buy with lobi that has holiday items in it.

But from what Kirian says, the only other way to get these holiday items is waiting 30 minutes for a snowball fight. Which I think having it rewarded by completing the daily race was better.

And there are plenty of interesting items in the store that's gonig to be difficult to collect them all before the event is over, and impossible if you got multiple characters.
