Receipt of the Box:
Recipient of the Box is either the Participant or another player, indicated by the Participant.
If the Participant purchases a Box/Boxes for himself/herself, the Box/Boxes content will be credited to the Participant’s account with a corresponding notification. If the Participant buys a present for another player, the recipient of the present will receive a notification about the present. The present will be credited to the account of the recipient only after recipient accepts the present. The Participant, who makes a present, will also receive a notification with information whether the recipient accepts or denies the present. If the present has not been accepted before the Campaign ends (or is terminated by the Organizer) the Participant who has purchased the present shall receive a compensation of its price in game Gold.
Specific terms and conditions of making presents are governed by End User License Agreement.
3. Holiday Atmosphere
Each Holiday decoration gives the Participants who receive them a certain amount of points of holiday atmosphere (the “Holiday Atmosphere”). Points of Holiday Atmosphere affect the atmosphere levels (the “Atmosphere Levels”) which the Participant can reach. For reaching each of 10 Atmosphere Levels the Participant receives in-game awards.
As one of the awards for reaching an Atmosphere Level a Participant may receive a discount for purchase of a vehicle of a particular level (a “Holiday Discount” ). If another discount is applicable to a particular vehicle at the same time, but this other discount is equal to or lower than the Holiday Discount, then the Holiday Discount will be used for the purchase. If this other discount is higher than the Holiday Discount, the higher discount will be used for the purchase. In both cases the discount that is not used will be kept and could be used later for purchase of another vehicle of the corresponding level.
To receive Holiday decorations the Participant will also be able to break the Holiday decorations, which he has, into shards and use craft mechanics to create a new Holiday decoration from the shards. After the Participant reaches Level 10 of Holiday Atmosphere, he/she can use shards to purchase the missing elements of the Collections Album of the last year’s Holiday Ops Campaign (Holiday Ops 2018).
4. Collections Album
The Participant can check the Collections Album to see which items of each collection he/she lacks and what he/she can do to obtain the missing elements of the collection.
Collections Album contains four thematic collections that Holiday decorations belong to: New Year Collection, Christmas Collection, Lunar New Year Collection, or Magic New Year Collection. For gathering all the elements of a thematic collection, the participant will receive the following awards that can be used in the Game: 6 special emblems, 6 special inscriptions, 1 special style for vehicles. Only unique decorations are added into collections, so if a Participant receives a duplicate decoration, this does not affect his/her progress towards completing a collection.
In addition to this, the Participant will be able to see the Collections Album of the last year’s Holiday Ops Campaign (Holiday Ops 2018).
5. Campaign Dates
The Campaign will begin on December 13, 2018 05:00 UTC and end on January 14, 2019 05:00 UTC. PARTICIPATION IN THE CAMPAIGN IS POSSIBLE ONLY during this specific time period (the “Campaign Period”).
