Click on the candy icon next to the promo icon to see the trick-or-treat progress and get details on how to participate in this community-wide event. Participants that reach their goal and the community goal will receive a new limited edition Trick-or-Treat 2018 Trophy item!
HOTELS SURVEY: The long-awaited hotels feature is getting closer to becoming reality, but we want your input before we wrap up final planning! Click here to take just a few minutes to fill out a survey to get your ideas/feedback included.

FEATURE Tired of waiting for others to join you for a round of bingo? That wait is now over as we've built bots into bingo that will play with you until other real players join to take their spots!
FEATURE Items in your vault can now be directly gifted to your friends for a small postage fee! Simply go to their profile and click on the "Send Gift" option in the actions list (previously "transfer chips"). You can also still send chips through this same window.
FEATURE Party Bombs can now be purchased in packs of 5 (with a wait time of 50 minutes).

Toggling this off will prevent you from being able to participate in any battles that occur while it is unchecked, but it also lowers your team's "active" count which is used to determine team size. So, if any of your crew members won't be available for a battle, you can still start a battle challenge without worrying about being at a disadvantage.

FEATURE The "battles" crew setting has been removed in favor of a simplified battle challenging system.

If your crew doesn't want to battle, then you don't have to do anything.
