Hello everyone! Happy Lunar New Year to those who celebrate it, and happy belated Valentine's Day to the rest.
Now that the Valentine's Day celebrations have come to an end, it's time for me to give the promised statistics (and for one person to be given Valenswine!)
All in all, Shotbow sent out 73,092 Valentines. That is a massive number.
Of those 73,902 - the ten most "loved" players received only 3,337. That said - a total of 3,082 players received Valentines.
But who gave them those Valentines? We'll see in a moment that a couple players were massively responsible - but they couldn't have done it without help - a total of 1,615 players sent Valentines. Yikes.. that's a lot of unreturned love.
Most Loved Players
10. Enif777_Xeon - 304 received
9. No3is - 310 received
7. kaitonn1207 and cola_and_soda both received 311
6. karukanfosb - 313 received
5. RoyalMilktea_ - 319 received
4. Reaper_0225 - 333 received
3. Kelestami - 351 received
2. onocyan - 364 received
1. tyem0802 - 421 received
I can definitely say that Kelestami deserved it - they sent out a lot of Valentines. I'm personally disappointed to have fallen to within the top 50 with only 194. Come on guys - doesn't the guy who put it all together deserve love too?
Now, while I didn't receive quite the amount of Valentines I was personally hoping for, we do still all need to be exceedingly thankful for the hard work of our most generous players. These players spent a hoard of XP in order to deliver Valentines. The most generous Valentine's Day player will, as stated on our Twitter, be given Valenswine - our new seasonal Valentine's pet - absolutely free.
Most Generous Players
10. kaitonn1207 - 334 sent
9. MonHunBuka - 336 sent
8. Reaper_0225 - 344 sent
7. Lubeso - 358 sent
6. RoyalMilktea_ - 380 sent
5. karukanfosb - 413 sent
4. onocyan - 447 sent
3. tyem0802 - 566 sent
2. No3is - 1349 sent
1. Kelestami - 1655 sent
Now do you see why I said Kelestami deserved it? They sent nearly 2,000 Valentines by themselves. That's crazy. They've been rewarded Valenswine for their tremendous efforts.
Thank you to everyone that participated! This plugin also marked our first real-world trial-run of a localized plugin. For those who play Minecraft in English you might not have noticed, but the /valentine command would respond in the same language as your Minecraft - as long as we supported it.
Our supported languages during this event were: English, Spanish, French, Turkish, Dutch, German, Portugese, Japanese - and a hidden language: Pirate! This wouldn't have been possible without the tremendously hard work of our Localization Team. If you found any issues with the localization, please send me a PM over the forums - or file a bug in our issue tracker.
Thanks again to everyone! Until next time!
