    Hi Mayhemians,

    In preparation for the Holidays, we've added Magical Christmas Crates to the store at shop.pm-mc.com. Think of these as an even more awesome version of presents (from previous years). Here's a list of all the things you can get from them:
    • Winter Rank Prefix (only unlockable in Magical Christmas Crates)
    • Snowball Effect (only unlockable in Christmas Crates)
    • Grinch Hat (only unlockable in Christmas Crates)
    • Santa Hat (only unlockable in Christmas Crates)
    • Present Hat (only unlockable in Magical Christmas Crates)
    • 250-1500 Cookies
    • 1-2 Personal Cookie Booster for 1 Hours
    • 1-3 Cookie Boosters
    • 1-3 Eclipse Boosters
    • 1-3 Night Boosters
    • 1-3 Old Cookie Boosters
    • 1-3 Old Eclipse Boosters
    • 1-3 Old Night Boosters
    • 1-3 Thanksgiving Boosters
    • 1-3 Easter Boosters
    • 1-3 Pot o' Gold Boosters
    The price for these Magical Christmas Crates is 5 for $7.50 or 15 for $20. For every 5 purchased, you will also receive 1 additional Super Magical Christmas Crate with highly buffed cosmetic chances.

    Enjoy. We'll have some more Christmas updates later this week :)

    There will probably be some (not many) in the package. The individual cosmetics earnable by the Magical Christmas Crates will NOT be in the package.

    Not sure why you feel that way. These are very competitively priced.

    I dunno I just think its a turnaway that it's completely luck based. Earlier today a player did it, and in their first 4 crates they only got 2000 cookies, and a night booster. I think it'd be better to, if there was a way, promise at least one new particle/hat/prefix

    Will Mayhem+ ranked players be able to get any of these cosmetic items at some point?

    I just bought it... I close to getting some good stuff. If I had gotten the tag in my opinion it would've been way more worth it (its limited edition ;) )

    I agree. It's borderline gambling. It's pretty unfair when someone opens 5 presents to get an effect or prefix and some good boosters and another guy just gets cookies even though they paid the same amount. I don't mind keeping the rare stuff rare personally but balancing the rewards to promise at least some boosters is a good idea. I would not pay $7.50 for 2000 cookies and a night booster.

    The odds are really good for the cosmetic items. We don't want it to be unfair. We're just trying something new and I believe the odds are really reasonable right now.

    You wouldn't get 2000 cookies and a night booster out of 5 crates. I honestly think the pricing and the odds of the crates are entirely fair. When they were Christmas presents last year (and didn't have cosmetic items) nobody made any complaints but suddenly now that we've made them even more special, people are complaining. I don't really get it considering these have better odds are are a better value than anything we've put out that's similar to how these work. Also, if you don't want to buy them, you don't have to, you can still get Christmas Crates from playing (albeit the odds of cosmetics are worse in those).

    The items that are only found in the crates will not be given out to Mayhem+ players since it's not part of a rank or holiday package.

    Literally happened to Organicmoo. You quoted the exact post that talked about it.

    The Magical Christmas Crates have been brought to you by EA.

    Just because the odds are good, which I agree we can get some pretty cool stuff from it, doesn't mean getting really bad stuff won't happen. I actually did have a bit of a fit about last year because I bought a whole bunch and didn't have much luck. With the implementation of better stuff it'll just piss people off more when they get the bad stuff. When someone looks at that big list which is mostly boosters and effects and only one reward as cookies, they don't expect to get cookies from 4 crates. I'm sure most people will be satisfied with these but not everyone will have the luck.

    Don't pull the EA card here. The content that is being unlocked here is purely cosmetic.

    You're not always going to get good stuff, but we were testing it earlier and the expected value of the rewards (calculated by probability of getting the reward * value of the reward) is good given the price of the crates.

    Yeah you obviously know more than me, I regret call it "borderline gambling" without any knowledge. I still feel sorry for the unfortunate unlucky.

    I am going to buy as many of these as it takes to get the tag lmao

    Also Maxben, I like the addition of the magical chests. It gives players the option to be able to unlock more cool stuff for Christmas and is pretty cheap ($1.50 per )
