April Fool’s Day - Forum Competition! 

Unlike what the Walkers have, this is something we want to be contagious - laughter!

For this years April Fool’s Day we are kicking off a small competition here on the Forum. To participate, in this thread below write your best idea for a prank you’d pull in the game in honour of April Fool’s day.

ONE entry per person. All participants will receive a special Forum badge, and three winners will be picked to get an in-game radio bundle!

Winners will be chosen by the NML team, so bring your A-game. 

Competition starts now and ends on Wednesday 6.4.2022 at 12PM UTC. Winners will be announced on Friday 8.4.2022 here in this same thread.

    The prank I would choose is that at any given time we have to play as the walkers instead of our heroes or all our heroes have become walkers. Would be a fun gimmick!

    My prank would be to randomise everyone’s camp, then every time they log in everything’s moved around. You could also switch the icons around the edge of the screen too, so the green missions button moves top left and radio calls is top right etc.

    Best prank would be for people to log on to find their base's walls wrecked, walkers causing havoc inside, all buildings, tents etc ablaze, resources and level reduced to zero with a message "You left the newbie guarding the gate and the dead got in. Game over."

    Best prank would be to swap the heroes and their classes, e.g. make Mercer a Bruiser, Sasha a Scout, …

    The 'Why Are You Attacking Yourself?' Prank. All attacks from heroes affect that hero and not the walkers e.g. If Sasha is equipped with the Harpoon Gun she would root herself when using a charge attack, Yumiko would attack herself and get attacked by all other ranged members of her team too, Alpha would set herself on fire when using the Festive Shotgun etc.

    A best in game prank would be to get all heroes and survivors to have the same face for a day while letting the game still run it’s natural course. And at the end of the day, players who had played are awarded with April Fools gold of 1000, which needs to be spend within the next day

    Switch every single hero leader trait to each other but still keep the description said how the trait are supposed to work
    For example Sasha on bodyshot gain Charge point but being randomly switched to Tara Healing Charge but the description is still said that you gain Charge point from bodyshot
    Each time you play a mission it will randomized

    Best prank I'd pull would be on my guild mates... "Hello Guildies. I have made the difficult decision to leave the game effective by the end of the day. It's been a fun 6 years as your leader, but I have to leave the game because I am seeing walkers IRL when I go out and my therapist says that is not a good thing. So, with that, I do want to say one last thing...  APRIL FOOLS!" :lol:

    The 'Server Error' prank;
    Run a script that forces every player to replay the introduction mission on their first start up of the day, as if their account was reset, and a new game was started, but after completion, you return to your normal camp and progress state. The bonfire can then show a notification icon showing an April Fool's message.

    The best in-game prank for April Fool's Day is to release premium access in next update

    How about this, players will get notified that the game has an update and they can choose between updating the game or close the game.
    If they update the game (and they will have to) a simple loading bar will appear,  however it will not load, nor update anything, small text will appear on top of the loading bar giving players  tips on how to avoid walkers, after the update ends, u will get a pop up message saying " you're now infected"  the screen will look a bit more reddish and all text including names will be changed to  zombie noise text... Perhaps "Raaahhhh" or Wwrhhaaa" and finally at the end of the day things will go back to normal

    I think a good prank would be if Raiders reanimated as walkers. Even a player's own dead characters could reanimate.

    I would have a link in News Section linking to this Forum Thread telling them the game is shutting down... and even add a pic of it so they click on the link and find out a News Hub exists now!

    Probably making a video!
