Talk:Gingerbread Base

From MHWiki


I am thinking the image should have a less obstrusive weapon than the FFT on it so we can see more of the base. Joseph 09:14, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

Done. The Horses are quite good for picture taking, the only trace of which is just a shadow... --J3W3L 13:12, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

It used to be the fourth limited edition base.

I don't understand this sentence. Why do we care if this is the first or fourth limited edition base. If it is the fourth limited edition base why is this in the past tense? -- Ralphminer 10:39, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

I've corrected the tense, don't know whether the factoid should be there or not. WyndStryke 12:08, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
Who said this was a limited-edition base, anyway? It doesn't get the LE shield when equipped. --B.Rossow · talk 17:18, 15 December 2009 (UTC)
It was originally my idea to point out the Polar, Birthday Cake and Magma Bases out as LE, but it was someone else who stated that it is the 4th LE Base. The Gingerbread Base technically should be an LE base (even though it and the Gingerbread House Surprise have no LE sign). I believe that LE traps/weapons should be defined as such - all traps/bases that you can only acquire for a limited period of time. The same goes for the Gingerbread Base/House Surprise - it can only probably be acquired during Christmas Winter hunt 09. As for the Polar Base/Birthday Cake Base/Partybot/normal HG Horsey, why the long wait for the LE Shield? I believe this is because they were not originally traps that were sold by Ronza (although she eventually sold them). Note that the Chrome Deathbot and Snow Barrage, as well as the Rocking Horses, Giant Speaker, Kraken and Magma Base already had their LE Shield when bought, because they were sold exclusively by Ronza. --J3W3L 03:56, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
It's not up to us to define Limited Edition. If the devs say something is LE (by branding it as such) then it is. If it is not branded, it is not LE as the term applies in MouseHunt. --B.Rossow · talk 04:36, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
It could be that it will come back every winter. -- Ralphminer 05:00, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
Why do we care that it's the fourth LE base anyway? If it is LE (which I would tend to agree to, and we've called PartyBot Limited Edition prior to the devs adding the LE sign - because it was only available to people with a certain item that could only be acquired during the Birthday event), that may be mentioned, but the order (whether it's the first, second etc. of such) doesn't matter, in my opinion. -- Camomiletea 16:34, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
