[Updated] Special July 4th Events!


Independence Day weekend is just around the corner, and we at Snail Games wanted to get our fans in the patriotic spirit. No matter your country or creed, we’ve got some exciting events for everyone to enjoy. Special bonuses, cool activities, live streams, and so very much more this Fourth of July!


The Montel Monument


As a special treat for the holiday, we’ve constructed a special Montel Monument! A pillar standing in remembrance of our Montel forebears, this monument can be found in the capital cities of each major race.



We’ve also got a special limited edition Fireworks item available for the holiday! For those lucky enough to get it, the fireworks will fill the air with a stunning light show around the monument. If you’d like to get your hands on some, check our community events below.

Fourth of July Smack Down


If anything exemplifies the Fourth of July, it’s a good brawl, and lucky for us this weekend is our special Arena double points Frenzy Weekend! To go along with the theme, we’ll be holding a special Fourth of July Smack Down.


During the weekend, we’re inviting top-ranked Arena players to go toe-to-toe for a bit to be the best! Players will take to the Balanced Arena, where low-level and high-level, experienced and newb meet in a competition of skill. The highest ranked 5 players on each server will received a special vanity title for their Forum ID.


Top 5 players in Ellescadia: Champion of Ellescadia

Top 5 players in Lokemea: Champion of Lokemea



Take on the top 10


As the players in the top 10 vie for the highest spots, all players high and low are encouraged to take to the Arena to challenge these masters of combat! We’ll post the names of the top ranked players on Friday, and if you encounter them in the Arena, post the results of your contest on Facebook and Twitter with our event hashtag #4thofJulyBGO. Win or lose, we’d like to hear it!


Ex: “Just had a close loss against the #2 ranked player on my server! Next time he’s mine #4thofJulyBGO”


We’ll pick 20 people who post to receive special prizes for their valiant efforts and amazing triumphs!


We’re looking for live streamers to help document all the 4th of July fun, as they fight their way through the Arena and enjoy the special fireworks show. If you’re interested in being a streaming partner, contact us at community@snailgamesusa.com.
