Frostval AC Gifting Event Origin + Feedback
One of the best parts of our videogame community is seeing heroes helping each other. Last year, we wanted to help bring that spirit of giving in-game. So for the first time ever, we held an AdventureCoin Gifting event.
Heroes could donate ACs to other random players, unlock rewards in a Generosity Merge Shop, and climb the Donation Leaderboard where those in the top spots unlocked exclusive prizes.
We saw a flood of happiness from excited heroes who were surprised with random gifts of ACs. We also saw people who didn't have as good an experience, So we asked what you'd like to see different if we held the event again this year.
We got a huge number of messages; many were 100% positive, but just as many contained very helpful, constructive ideas and feedback on how we could make this year's event even better. We held a team debrief shortly after the event ended to discuss your thoughts last year, and then began discussions again last month to finalize plans for the changes.

AC Frostval Gifting Event Changes
Accounts must complete Chilly's quest to participate in the event
We heard from many people that their 2nd / 3rd / 4th alt accounts were getting ACs, rather than their main account. Now you can choose which of your accounts can receive donations by having them complete Chilly's Quest (or not).
Participation Quest Requirements:
- Account is level 30+
- Confirm your email address
Need help confirming your email address? Check out the Support Page for more exact steps.
Reward Tier milestones are based on the amount you give, not your ranking
Every time you donate ACs to a random Hero, it will contribute to your Donation Gift total. At the end of the event, we'll award prizes based on how much you gave to other heroes.
Last year, only a certain number of heroes could unlock each reward tier. This year, we're removing those limits and anyone who meets the AC Gift milestone will unlock the tier rewards.
Splitting up large AC gifts
You can only give so many gifts in a short period of time, and that frustrated some people. You asked us to be able to "split" AC gifts, so one gift could be sent to many people... and now that's possible.
This year, we've added the following gift options:
- 20,000 AC Multi-Gift: 10 heroes get 2,000 ACs each
- 8,000 AC Multi-Gift: 8 heroes get 1,000 ACs each

There are currently a few ways of being notified you received a gift: when doing battles or switching maps in-game, or when you log in.
What if I make a mistake and donate the wrong amount?
The game will ask you each time if you’re sure you want to donate that amount. We cannot give refunds for incorrect donations, so please check and double-check before you hit the donate button and before you confirm the donation amount.
What if I pick the wrong item in the Generosity Shop? Can I get my Generosity Coin back?
We cannot give refunds for Generosity Coin shop purchases, so please check and double-check before you spend a GC on an item in the merge shop.
