Today when I logged into Mirai I saw a new gaming server. It’s called “Snowball Server”
Post from Mirai staff:
A new server has been added to Mirai, the Snowball Server! The Snowball server is a game server, like the old Hide & Seek server Oasis used to have. When you login to the server, you will see a green health bar, like so:
By default, you have 100 health points. This can be increased by purchasing health packs in the Snowball store, up to a maximum of 500 health points. Your health will replenish to its full amount every time you login to the server.
The goal of the game is to ‘kill’ other players with snowballs (don’t worry, there’s no blood!). There are 4 different types of snowballs you can use, each inflicting a different amount of damage. The snowballs you can use and the damage they do are as follows:
- Default (gray): 5 points of damage
- White: 7 points of damage
- Yellow: 10 points of damage
- Red: 15 points of damage
To select a different snowball, simply click on the snowball icon in the chat bar and select the snowball you wish to use. Each snowball comes with ammo. Default snowballs have unlimited ammo, and are free to use. Ammo for the other snowballs must be purchased with credits, and are limited in use. Ammo can be purchased in the credit store along with health packs, but be aware that the amount of ammo you have for a snowball decreases every time you use that snowball. So, if you purchase 50 red snowballs and throw 10 of them, you will have 40 of them. Also, if you have 50 red snowballs, use 10, then log out and back in, you will still have 40 snowballs, not 50.
The server uses special forest rooms instead of the normal rooms on the main server. There is also a map to help you navigate through these rooms. There are a few places to hide in these rooms, so use them to your advantage. Every time you load the server, you will be in the main room, or safe zone. No one can be killed in this room. In any other room, you are vulnerable to attack.
If someone kills you on the server, your penguin will fall over and the screen will turn gray, with a message saying “Game over” along with the name of the person who killed you:
You can earn credits on this server. You receive 10 credits per 20 points of damage you inflict. You receive your credits every time you relog.
Lastly, remember that Mirai is still in beta testing, and since this is a new server, there may be a few bugs. If you find any, leave a comment below!
