20071212 Snowballs

Ron Burgundy 01:23, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Suggestion type
Weapon, flavor, snowball, fun, ways to amuse Ron Burgundy, things that should be implemented.

Suggestion scope
This suggestion would effect everyone.

Suggestion description
We have snow but not snowballs or snowmen. What a travesty. This suggestion is for adding snowballs to the game.

To make a snowball, you have to go and gather snow in a street or otherwise empty block. Gathering the snow and making it into a ball is 1AP. Then you go and throw it at someone with whatever chance to hit you have with axes. I figure the motion to swing an axe and to throw a snowball is pretty similar, so that should make sense. Snowballs cause no harm and cost 1AP to throw.

If you sleep in a powered building, it's probably nice and warm. As such, your snowballs will melt. If you sleep in an unpowered building, your snowballs will not melt. If you are a zombie, your snowballs will not melt (yes, zombies can play too) as long as you are not in a powered building.

Zombies need the memories of life skill to make snowballs. If you don't have the memories of life skill, you can still try, but you will get a message that says "You try to make a snowball but fail and begin to weep silently."

Survivors and zombies can add rocks to snowballs for an additional 1AP while making them. Snowballs with rocks in them will cause 1 point of damage when thrown.

Keep Votes

  1. This is the best suggestion I have ever seen and is definitely not a duplicate of anything, anywhere. --Ron Burgundy 01:24, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  2. Keep - SNOWBALL FIGHT~!--  AHLGTG 01:28, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  3. Keep - Fun, cool flavor (I love the rock), available to zeds, and only temporary. Also, I go to Ron Burgundy for my snowball and dupe related info. --Shoot 1st 01:55, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  4. Keep - why not?--Zach016 02:09, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  5. Keep - I WANT! For all the above reasons. --Private Mark 02:12, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  6. Keep -Your on gnome! Prepare to lose! --BlobdudeTalk TM MC 03:13, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  7. Keep minus rocks - Because zombies deserve Christmas fun, too. But no rocks. I don't want a snowball taking 2AP to make. And they really shouldn't be weapons- we've got too many different kinds of lame weapons as it is. Useless snowball=fun. Deadly snowball=just use a gun or a knife or even your *fists*, dude. And EVERYONE should be able to do this, even noob zombies. Just change the flavor text- "You lash uncontrollably at the snow. A crude lump remains in your hand." --Ms.Panes 03:29, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  8. Keep Beautifully useless. I hope Kevan lets people use snowballs to attack snowmen. --Jon Pyre 03:33, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
    Wouldn't that just make them stronger? --Ron Burgundy 03:34, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  9. Keep -Ron, you beat me to it. *Thumbs up* --Adobewedge 03:41, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  10. Keep Yeah, we need some fun. But how about they don't do any damage? I mean, come on, have you ever been injured by a snowball? And no rocks - that's getting unneccesarily complicated --Sec 11:47, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  11. Keep - But no rocks! --LH779 04:28, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  12. Keep - snowball fight!--'BPTmz 05:13, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  13. Keep - Flavor for zombies too?! Who would dare think of such a thing? Oh, it's just Ron, that's glorious.--Karekmaps?! 06:16, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  14. Keep - I love this idea without the rocks.--Globule13 06:23, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  15. Win ᚱᛖᚢᛖᚾᚨᚾ 06:38, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  16. Keep - no rocks though --~~~~ [talk] 08:05, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  17. Keep - Let's keep it flavoury, eh? No rocks in a well-natured snowball. –Ariedartin Talk 09:18, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  18. Cool Because candy should not be the only fun thing. - Pardus 11:15, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  19. keep - SNOWBALLS!!!! doc crook 13:02, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  20. Keep/Anti Dupe - Awesome, and different enough from other snowballs--CorndogheroT-S-Z 13:16, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  21. Keep/change - Remove the rocks but keep the snow.Studoku 15:26, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  22. Keep/change - I love the idea. However, it might be easier to just say that snowballs have a flat to-hit rate (say, 50 percent), and remove the bit about the rocks. As someone earlier suggested, let noob zombies throw snowballs too. Sounds like great fun. :) Adept Omega 19:02, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  23. Keep - We're already having a snowball fight at Quartly. Why shouldn't we have actual snowballs? --Goolina Gore Corps 19:35, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  24. Keep -And then you guys better run!--Pibbit 19:46, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  25. Keep - Hell yes! --dudemeister 20:07, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  26. Keep- Snowballs would be awesome.--Lord Wulfgar 20:52, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  27. Keep - For the love of Frosty, give us snowballs!!!. --GunFox13 21:25, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  28. Keep - It'd be tons of fun. But watch out for the yellow ones, they taste funny. --Braggledorth 21:30, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  29. Keep - I Also think this would be really fun. Rocks would be really sneaky in a snowball fight. I don't think it's a dupe because it's not exactly like that other suggestion. --Waterspark2 04:39 p.m., 12 December 2007 (EST)
  30. Keep HELL YES MORE FLAVOR!----Sexualharrison<sup> ה &bull;QSG&bullT</sup>Starofdavid2.png Boobs.gif 21:46, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  31. Keep - Different from the snowballs mentioned by the Dupe votes, as it causes 0 damage, and therefore is purely for recreational purposes, rather than headshots. --DTPraise KnowledgePK 22:00, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Kill Votes

  1. Kill - Urban Dead is not Urban Christmas. Out of genre. --Pgunn 02:23, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  2. Kill- And you proceed to ruin it with the stupid skill requirement and rocks, way to go. -- BKM 03:10, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  3. Kill - Using Axe percentages for snowballs is just plain silly, requiring Memories of Life for making a snowball and the flavour message for failing when you don't have it are both annoying, putting rocks inside snowballs is stupid and having the snowballs melt only while sleeping in a powered building is dumb (how do you define "sleeping" anyway? below 1AP? Could you keep them from melting just by keeping 1AP in store?). --Midianian|T|T:S|C:RCS| 08:59, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  4. Change - get rid of the adding rocks and MoL bit --Pavluk A! E! 11:58, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  5. Change - While there is a suggestion in PR as Funt has linked, I think this is specific enough to get around that, and the percentages are different as well. The only thing that I would like to see changed is the removal of rocks from the snowballs. --Ryiis 14:48, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
    Am I the only person here who put rocks in showballs when he was a kid/teenager/adult? Where did you guys grow up? --Ron Burgundy 19:11, 12 December 2007 (UTC)


Spam/Dupe Votes

  1. Dupe -Already suggested in the PR weather changes suggestion. My chronic laziness doesn't permit me to link. --Heretic144 01:31, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
    This is a lie. Don't believe him! --Ron Burgundy 01:36, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  2. Dupe - the idea of chucking snowballs is a part of the Peer Reviewed Monthly Weather suggestion, which contains this line: Snow - Allows the use of a new weapon: The snowball. It will have a 5% chance to hit, causing 1 point of damage. This weapon can only be used outside. --Funt Solo QT Scotland flag.JPG 09:49, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  3. Dupe - As above. --The Grimch U! E! WAT! 11:29, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
  4. Humorous pisstake spam - of JP's snowmen -- boxy talki 11:55 12 December 2007 (BST)
