Snowballs!! I think CCP should bring this back, Ive seen a few videos on youtube about it, and the occasional contracts in eve selling them. I would love to have a couple snowball fights with my corp mates, just mix it up a little.

While I am at it, why not have a firework launcher as well? No not for celebrating July 4th, but for the Chinese New Year. Guild Wars does it without having any one complain about "religious holidays" so I dont see why CCP would have a problem either.

What are your thoughts on this?
GO!

Well they got rid of them because they freaked out people and made them get popped by concord for firing back at the snowballer. Though im still holding on to mine.

Well guild wars does all the holidays to con people into doing the stupid missions and playing sissors/paper/rock with NPCs for hours to earn guff like Hats and Pets. People all lap it up because they must collect all the Hats or they feel that their peen is too small.

While the snowballs were fun, I think spaceships shooting fireworks and streamers would break the feel of the game.

However: I am sure you will get your wish once walking in stations is implemented.

Proving once again that stupid people are the reason we can't have nice things.

Not so much as streamers, but more like a mortar shot, a basic missile until it hits its intended target, then explodes into the glorious colorful explosion. I dont think it would change the feel for the game, as the snowballs did not.

Or a ship with no highslots, but 8 built-in snowball launchers.
