    Hello friends.

    I hope you guys are enjoying the OnePlus Run!

    When we start planning the events around OnePlus Anniversary, we talked about having a fitness-related campaign, inviting you to run in real life, having your mobile phones/smart wearables track your steps/distance.

    However, with the uncertainty of COVID-19 around the world and the bad Winter weather in some regions, we felt this could be not as inclusive as we'd like. Instead, thought of something more interactive, a campaign that can involve all users – A "run" through the 8 years of OnePlus.

    In OnePlus Run, you are Una, our mascot, and run through four different scenes, filled with easter eggs. I'm sure the most active users out there, will be able to spot the 12 OnePlus-related easter eggs we planted in the game.

    For our friends who are not too familiar with the OnePlus brand, fret not! In no time you will be experts of our favourite OnePlus moments. On the surface, OnePlus Run is a game, but at its core, it is a celebration of the OnePlus brand and Community.

    Without further ado, let's get started on how you can collectively win RP and help out our new users.

    How to Participate:
    • There are a total of 12 easter eggs
    • You can participate in this OnePlus Run - easter egg hunt via the form here.
    • We will then reveal the easter eggs every 12 hours, starting from December 10, 2021 6:00 P.M. HKT (GMT+8) in the following format
      • What the easter egg is
      • How is this easter egg tied to OnePlus
      • Reference to the easter egg (Links on Community Forums/Youtube)
    • We'll reveal the easter eggs in order, from the most mentioned to the least.
    • You can submit more than one entry, but you can only win up to 3 times. You will be selected in the highest tiers you are eligible, to maximize your chances of winning RP.
    Rules:
    • Users who submit their entries after easter eggs get revealed get 0 RP
    • Your entry is valid ONLY when both easter egg and correct tie-in to OnePlus brand matches
    • Winners will be announced along with easter egg reveal. Winners will be announced after the last easter egg is revealed.
    • We will rank the difficulty of each easter eggs based on frequency of the OnePlus Element mentioned in the Forms, e.g. if the most mentioned "easter egg A" is mentioned 88 times, and "easter egg B" is mentioned 80 times, easter egg A would be Tier 12 Easter Egg.
    • The difficulty of each easter eggs also determines the prize attribution found in Prizes Section.

    A few additional stats:
    • Of all entries so far, over 33% are invalid.
    • If you think you've submitted all easter eggs, think again... No one has correctly guessed all easter eggs, and only one user is one guess away from finding all of them.
    • Your creative minds found an easter egg we didn't consider. We will also reward that new easter egg!
    • All easter eggs have been found, just not by the same person!

    As promised, today we're unveiling a bonus easter egg. This was merely a creative decision from the game-making agency, but so many of you mentioned it we decided to make an easter egg on its own. As an added bonus, we'll reward everyone that mentioned this easter egg with 20 RP.

    We'll announce all the winners by today.

    Screenshot_2021-12-16-10-01-59-62_40deb401b9ffe8e1df2f1cc5ba480b12.jpg

    Bonus Reveal: 12:17 phone time
    Tie-in to OnePlus: 12:17 or, more exactly, December 17 is the day OnePlus was founded and the day we host our yearly Community celebrations. Speaking of which, tomorrow we'll host the Community Awards and it'll be the first day you're allowed to exchange raffles for prizes. Do. Not. Miss. It.
