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)
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...
Many of us have done three pumpkin alerts and have never seen one. I too, have experienced this massive waste-of-time event
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.
This feels more like an April Fools event.
Wait, pumpkins give you XP?
Pumpkin is a fruit.
Yeah, something like 300xp, I think. More for the galact-o-lantern.
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.
