WoW! I'll have to log in tonight and go freak out some people with that!

On the light side, I can see a bit of gang or even fleet 'warfare' with these could be completely awesome. On the evil side, maybe I can con some into actually returning fire with live ammo, and thereby invoking concord wrath and netting me a nice piece of wreckage to loot/scavenge while costing me no security dings.

This also makes me wish I had more alts, so I could gather more snowballs and launchers to mount a bunch of them at once. This also makes me wish they put out some plans for these as well, so we could manufacture them, as I'm sure they would sell (not as well as 'real' gear, but none-the-less for novelty's sake).

Finally had to just shoot a corpmate to get the picture, eh? The snowballs and launchers was an awesome gift the first time around and players have been clamoring for them ever since. Its nice to see them back in game again

Actually I took this with a generic account alt (NPC corp). I tend to use it for screenshots like triggering CONCORD, and things of that nature. Kind of like a stunt double.

So the target here was actually just in the same NPC corp. Total stranger.

It's my first time to see these in-game, I believe they weren't given to us last year. They've been a lot of fun though.

Does anyone remember how long before the snowballs melt?

I think its been about 2 years since the last time the snowball launchers appeared. I seem to remember getting them around then. They definitely were not given last year, and the EvE-O forums were very vocal about it.

If the forum post from CCP can be taken literally, I would guess that early January the snowballs will melt. From the post:

"our current estimates is that the effects of said storm will be in effect until downtime January 6, 2009"
