EVE Online’s winter events are all about players fighting… with snowballs

You’ve been playing EVE Online long enough to know that it’s rarely good news when another ship arrives nearby and starts heading toward you with murder in its (metaphorical) eyes. There’s not much you can do at that point, and you start trying to evade, but your ship is helpless as it aims and fires off a full volley of… snowballs. Yes, the winter event has come to the game, and that brings with it two drops of seasonal awards to all active EVE accounts on December 24th and December 31st. The first drop is all snowballs, while the second is fireworks.

Players who can’t wait to pepper their opponents with snowballs can also receive these items from Operation Frostline loot drops or purchase them from the New Eden store. There are also special collectibles and commodities available on December 24th to celebrate the year’s events and a snowball fight on December 20th, so players will have plenty of opportunity to target one another with frozen ice instead of weapons. Or possibly frozen ice followed almost immediately by weapons.

The biggest fight in Eve Online of 2015 is fought on Reddit.

Reddit versus Goonswarm in full forums wars as ingame none even try’s to kick their castle in anymore :( 

Hope Citadels blow new life into Eve as right now its not worth playing :(

I’m surprised they actually made a way for players to get them in-game instead, to be honest.  ;)

Snowballs one year, no snowballs allowed the next, Back and forth. Yeesh. I remember the Melted Snowballs ;(

Tell me, does Concord still lack a sense of humour and shoot down any snowballs fired at one of their ships? :p

Comets would be significantly larger though. I was thinking how snowballs would work in a vacuum fired a high velocity from a projectile of a moving object at another moving object. I am not sure they would work like that as pictured. o.O
