Just like to point out that this quest line is for US players only... Us poor EU players will have to wait until Codemasters decide to do their own version of April Fool's day...

Sadly, from Turbine:

April Fool's Quest Disabled
Apr 01, 2009 11:50 EST Due to the load on our servers caused by the April Fool's chicken session play, we are disabling the quest. Please note if you receive a mail, you cannot turn it in with the quest disabled. We hope you had fun while it was open, and we're sorry the quest bawked!

It was kind of fun at first...but what with all the Wargs ganking...it got kind of old too. I think the REAL prank should have been on the creeps. Chickens that can fight back as a Level 60 Elite Master! HAH!

Ugh! That's too bad, but I guess we could see that one coming. This whole thing makes that "Fool" title all the more precioussss...

It wasn't fun to do on Brandywine while it was still up. Ended up being camped by agroup of 5 or 6 Monsters Players. I think I died and had to rejoin some 10+ times before a raid of Free Peoples cleared our spawning point and led us to Glan Vraig. But I ended up finishing it. It was a rush trying to run before the MPs killed us before the Freep raid escorted us.

It wasn't very fun. No matter how I did it I was always killed. Fun to try but I don't think I missed much.

It may not have been fun but I did it and was unable to turn it in. Bad form Turbine.

Such great fun, and a difficult title to get too.

Ending up in the 'moors was a scary thing as a level 1 chook, especially as I don't know my way around that zone.

A few deaths and I decided to create a creep and scout out the zone, unfortunately, while stalking through the trees a column of freeps arrived with 20 chooks in tow, and proceeded to nuke me.

When I came back in as a chicken the rezpoint was camped with wargs and spiders killing chickens as soon as they rezzed, a real blood bath until the freeps got back and got organised, keeping the area clean.

I did a few runs in escort, always being picked off by a daring warg running through the escort and taking out as many chickens as he could, then I decided to go it alone.

Sneaking into the centre of the map I swam up the river as far as I could go then made a mad dash for the corner of the map, not seeing a single mob or creep.

Woot, what a hoot. And I think I only died 40 times.

I managed to complete it this morning, but I hate to see the quest get turned off like that. Of the same token, I'd love to see them bring back the chickenball game so I could experience that.

I managed to get my Fool title last night. It took about 5 attempts, and I had good success not going directly southeast as soon as I left the chicken spawn area. I went north first, cut east high up in the zone, and came down the east zone wall to the quest terminus. I didn't see a single creep out that way, although I did manage to get killed by mobs twice :)

They're all expecting the chickens to make a diagonal line across the zone.
