I'm looking at my watch, and it's just under 5 minutes until the 4th anniversary of the Onigiri Rarity Matsuri. It's a shame we can't a shindig like those of old, but it doesn't mean we cannot celebrate our glorious riceball nonetheless.
For those scratching their heads wondering what the heck this "Onigiri Rarity Matsuri" is, it was a day-long celebration originally started on a lark during a late night session on the old PF2 servers, when the at the time admin Mr. Hooves typed the sentence, "Onigiri Rarity is best Rarity." at 4:26:36 AM on May 20th, 2013. Shortly after, what happened was nothing short of an improvised server-wide giveaway and trading of items, crates, robo-crates, keys, and robo-keys of a large scale.
The following year, I decided to keep the magic alive with a large raffle event, always starting at 4:26 AM, and the event growing each year, with the last Matsuri we did throwing in a special extra competition using PF2's own Heroes mod known as the "Riceball Hunt," the winner the one that got the quickest kill on me whenever I was Rarity.
Sadly, the end of PF2 and my own financial limitations put an end to the giveaways, but I hope the spirit of the Onigiri Rarity Matsuri will persist here.
