A vet friend gave me a snowball launcher and a pile of melted balls. I truly cherish this gift, even if I wasn't around to use it and unable to use it now.

If it can't be snowball launchers - how about icicle projectors? Improved technology with tracking and speed high enough to make sure everyone gets to be on the receiving end?

I have an old launcher that I swiped from a poor sap who wasn't paying attention. Been waiting to actually use it.

I grew up in Canada and as a result I enjoy the occasional snowball fight. I wasn't a part of Eve back when snowball launchers were given away but I've heard about them periodically for the past couple of years. I would love to see Eve's take on a good snowball fight.

I wasn't around when the snowballs were given out but I've heard many great stories about them. I would love for them to come back!

I loved my snowball launcher from back in 2006. I still have it and 254 snowballs. I would love for it to ride again.

*thinks of outfitting his Drake with a full set of snowball launchers and pumping his targeting skill enough to track that many targets and an unlimited supply of snowballs and starts rolling on the floor with laughter*

Only just recently joined but that sight would be sooooo Fing hilarious.

I support this. I have a few melted snowballs and have heard how fun it was back in the day (I joined winter 09).

Maybe add the BPC's for the launchers and the snowballs to be exploration items like with the ASB and target breaker.

...and while you're at it, give me a freezer so I can reconstitute my other snowballs. (You know, it would be funny if the Snowballs MMVIII and MMV were dirty and had different effects... maybe instead of -5 thermal damage you culd just give them -2)

replying in here beacuse I loved the snowball launchers, I remember them very fondly.

I love the collectors items and birthday gifts eve gives out and have my own collection however, every year upon logging in to eve around christmas/new year I am hoping there are snowballs and snowball launchers to redeem.
