I thought she was a puppy.
SMITE developer Hi-Rez Studios embarks on its second Annual Spring Fling charity livestream today, and this year’s event is dedicated to fundraising for a Hi-Rez employee undergoing treatment for cancer.

“The 2nd Annual Spring Fling is one of Hi-Rez Studios most favorable charity streams! With special guest appearances from your favorite casters, pro players, and community figures, and a slew of new challenges and mini games this year is shaping up to be the best Spring Fling yet. Held at Hi-Rez’s own studio in Alpharetta, GA the event is scheduled to take place Thursday, April 28th from 1pm EDT until 7pm EDT on our Twitch channel – Twitch.tv/HiRezTV. This year, all proceeds will be directly benefiting David “Allied” Hance and his battle against cancer! Whether you can donate or not, be sure to tune into the broadcast and show your support for Allied and those who make SMITE great for YOU!”

Those who donate at least 10 bucks during the streamathon will pick up a special Arachne icon, but there are individual rewards at other tiers to make Hi-Rez staffers do crazy things like eat bugs. If the community raises $7500, one staffer will even get a tattoo.

The stream kicks off at 1 p.m. EDT this afternoon.

So Archon Thanatos is worth $1000. There literally will never be a skin like it ever again.

BritoBruno breetoplay Sorenthaz Well the festivities did involve several people getting two different breeds of cockroaches put on their face as part of the things donators could request.  >.>

Apparently one of the HiRez employees is big on using bugs for a variety of purposes.  I.e. mealworms for, well, meals.  Like he baked a bunch of “mealworm pizzas” as one of the things donators could request people to eat as well.

Dont you talk about CRs. I WAS extremely fearful of them. Until yesterday, when EIGHT decided to invade my home.
I’m now a mess of raging synapses waiting the next, so i can take pleasure in killing it with my bare hands.
Yeah, i lost the fear all right. Who the hell wouldn’t.

breetoplay  Well in the end they didn’t deliver more than two chests (out of the 12 that were supposed to be sent out + the two RAF skins that were promised as donation stretch goals).   Instead they kept dragging people along saying they were working on it, and to be patient, then simply called everyone greedy for wanting the codes and didn’t reveal until the very end of the event (which was cut an hour short) that there wouldn’t be any more codes given out, because the point of the stream wasn’t about those in the first place.
So yeah there’s now quite a bit of backlash over them backing out on what was promised as donation goals.

Sorenthaz I would watch, but ug, even writing it — they have a cockroach on the splash page. That alone freaks me out, so no watching for me. :P Thanks for tipping as always Soren. <3

Of note, there’ll be codes given out during the stream which will last for 3 minutes each.   Since reaching the 25k goal that will include a code for Triumph Agni (normally obtainable only by playing for 10 hours with a friend that you recruited from the Recruit-a-Friend system) and if they hit 50k then a 3min Sock Puppetyr (the other Recruit-a-Friend skin which requires you to have three recruited accounts hit level 15) code will be put out there.   Plus at every 5k free chest roll codes will be given out.   First one was a Pandamonium Chest ( http://smite.gamepedia.com/Pandamonium_Chest ) and the second one was a 2016 Odyssey chest (http://smite.gamepedia.com/Odyssey_2016_Chest ).
I got the Sol and Hades voice packs so far from mine, lol.

Filur I’d just like to point out that your post is stupid, and has so many things wrong with it, it wasn’t worth correcting any of it.

I hope David will get well soon. Nonetheless for the rest of the world it look like a medieval savagery when a developed country doesn’t have socialized medicine in 21th century.
p.s. Did you know 1/3 of people with medical insurance goes bankrupt during a year in case of serious illness in US?
