Default Xmas Event Delayed

We're really sorry - but, due to technical hitches, the Twisted Christmas Event start is going back one day. Should be ready to roll tomorrow (12.12.12). You can still be earning your Dwarfs!? gold in the meantime, of course...

This event is going to be starting on the one year anniversary of my clan's founding, lovely.

The achievement is based on cumulative gold. You don't need to get it all in one go. It only takes about 20 minutes to get the achievement.

I'm pretty down about the event being pushed back, though. Been looking forward to it for so long. I hope it releases early tomorrow and not late in the evening >_>

Good one TWI...good one indeed.

Oh well, looks like I'll just be rocking the update when I'm at work at my second job tomorrow night. At least the internet there is 3.5 Mb/s. Do your best not to delay it further TWI. Hopefully you're adding an extra day to the end of the event to compensate~

Once Dwarfs!? does work the gold is easy. Even if the achievement wasn't cumulative I've only played a few games of it and the most I've had at one time was like 117k.

It's an old TWI game.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/21..._7_suggest__13

Gold is something you earn whilst playing.


Shame but it'll be released on 12/12/12 maybe at 12:12:12? :>

Bracing for this rare occasion!

It's another game on Steam. You can either buy it to unlock the dwarf axe in KF or play the free2play version and get a total cumulative score of 40,000 gold in arcade mode to get the achievement Not A War Hammer to unlock it.

An attempt to advertise an ok game with a horrendous install process. Doing something in that game unlocks something in Killing Floor. They give you two options - get the achievement for collecting 40k gold in Dwarfs, or you can just buy the game and be done with it.



The Dwarfinch stole KF Xmas.

For me it was actually a pretty fun puzzle game. I think it's a great way to give out a weapon instead of charging for it.

"Here, try our other game. If you like it, you'll probably buy it. If not, you can still get the weapon and at least say you tried it."

I'll probably get Dwarfs?! full version if it goes on sale for 50% or so. I found it amusing and the 30 minute games fly by pretty fast.

My guess is that technical difficulty department is that they misspelled "Fight" in the preview video PC Gamer posted on youtube

If ya play a 60 minute game (though all these complaints about install/running issues baffle me) you'll easily get the achievement as long as lady luck doesn't screw ya over and you do the Dorf Fortress Death Spiral in the first 30 minutes. Doing it on easy will help minimize the issues in that regard though.

I got my gold packed and just waiting on the update now :P

Same. Really hoping they live up to their word and release it tomorrow. I'm really itching for it now.

No need to be sorry Wilsonam, but I appreciate your excellent customer service. No other developers are as awesome as you guys. I just want to let you know that I appreciate all of your hard work, and I look forward to all of your future releases, KF and whatever else you come up with in the future.

I was wondering why my game didn't update when I awoke from my nap. XD S'all good, the cool *** Medigun can wait until tomorrow.

(BTW Wilsonam, CHECK YOUR PMs! I sent you one awhile back concerning something that should be easily fixed. )
