Many of us are getting into a festive mood as we are entering the holiday season, and the Platinum Team, Aayrl, RDs.Empire and Buzzmusic have pulled a lightning fast effort to celebrate the holidays.
It’s been raining recently, and due to low temperatures a lot of Multiplayer levels are covered in ice. Marbles are advised to use caution when navigating to the gems. Those that did not have the extra ice on them have been removed to a warm shed. These levels will not be playable.
It also appears temperatures have gotten a little too extreme, and PlatinumQuest’s Ice Shards have started popping around the levels, freezing any marble that dares touch them. We found that using Mega Marbles is the best way to handle them, as you won’t get frozen; you will only lose your Mega Marble. PlatinumQuest’s Ice Slicks have also surfaced, even on non-ice surfaces.
Furthermore, all levels have been swept in a seasonal snow, and we don’t know when it will stop, but you will see it falling while playing. To help many combat the cold, we are happy to announce that small Santa’s hats will be provided for marbles to wear at all times.
To raise the chilly mood, a new festive soundtrack will be played while matches are being held, and it will replace the normal Tim Trance.
In addition, all rated matches will see a change in scores. Winners will receive a bonus of 3 points on every win, and losers will lose 3 fewer points, so if you were set to lose 3 points on a match, you will lose nothing instead. All Leaderboards have been modified so you can grab a new number 1 spot in these challenging levels.
Lastly, it has come to our attention from the police scanner that marbles seemed to have gained an ability to throw snowballs at each other, causing mayhem. Here at MarbleBlast.com, we strongly approve of that, and anyone found hitting each other with snowballs will be awarded extra points.
Temperatures should warm up during January, so these changes should be limited to the month of December, but weather forecast may see them stay for up to a week in January.
We wish all marblers to exercise caution and enjoy the holiday season.
