    I have done 3 pumpkin alerts.....I have never seen one

    The best part is each pumpking will give you 1 seed and you need close to 200 to buy anything.

    Spent an entire hour on Hossin during a pumpkin alert, and another hour not during said alert.
    I have never seen a single pumpkin and I'm starting to believe they do not exist (for certain players).

    During the Christmas event I found not one, but THREE Golden Snowmen on Esamir.
    And I thought snowmen were rare, these pumpkins must be at least 5x rarer.

    I concur. I have found less than 10 pumpkins across multiple alerts on multiple servers. I was ranked top ten for both Golden Snowman and Regular snowman kills last Christmas season, and so far have a whopping 10 pumpkin seeds. Today, I did NOTHING but search for pumpkins, and found two in a full 1 hour alert. 1 at the very beginning of the alert, and one at the very end. Waste of my time.

    I've managed to find 6 over 3 alerts, and got lucky with one of the pumpkins dropping 3 seeds. Blows my mind that I already see people running around with 100 seed cost masks.

    I have yet to even bother trying to find one. I play this game to enjoy combat, not to go chasing vegetables.

    I have not seen a pumpkin either, but then again I am not looking for them.
    If I find one, I probably won't even shoot it, as I don't want any limited time use stuff anyways.

    The one time I got a pumpkin, it spawned in front of me as I was running forward in an open field. Like, 10 meters in front of me. Fitting that I only got 1 seed from it. ;)

    My 4 alerts

    First one : 1 pumpkin
    Second: 9 (I have no idea how lol)
    Third: 2
    Fourth: 6

    So I got one mask, which is nice :3

    They probably paid SC for them. I mean, a handful of people have probably earned 100 seeds by now, but not many.

    But, but, the XP...
  12. DatVanuMan

    Many of us have done three pumpkin alerts and have never seen one. I too, have experienced this massive waste-of-time event:(
  13. Goretzu

    Maybe it'll ramp up as it gets closer, presently it seems like a massive waste of time and effort to bother actively hunting them - although I do wonder if so many being SC buyable has skewed this event to the P2W/P2Own end of the scale.
  14. Outland

    This feels more like an April Fools event.
  15. LibertyRevolution

    Wait, pumpkins give you XP?
  16. Diilicious

    Pumpkin is a fruit.
  17. _itg

    Yeah, something like 300xp, I think. More for the galact-o-lantern.
  18. LibertyRevolution

    There is more than one type of pumpkin?

    I combine the two. To get killed by me you must be a vegetable...

    As for pumpkins... I've not gone looking for them specifically and I haven't stumbled across any yet.

    During the Snowman thing I found one ordinary snowman and one golden one. I decided that, after finding the golden snowman I would give up entirely because it just wasn't as fun as actually playing the game.
