Masquerade 2022 is HERE!

Are y'all ready to dance? The Annual Masquerade Ball has officially begun. Make sure to stay hydrated because the dance floor will be open until 11:59pm on June 12. The Masquerade Forums will close on June 17.

Use the following code in your status and other places to get friends (and strangers) to share a dance with you!

Code:
[dance=USERNAME]
Want a little more surprise in your dancing? Try the Mystery Dance feature! Note: Mystery Dancing has its own timer separate from dancing on the forums/chosen user/etc. So you can do a mystery dance and then go dance on the forums right after!

Red Saheric Dusk Mask
Masquerade Zasaba Mask
Ytivan Chisel Mask
Cracked Shadowglen Doll Mask
Purple Studded Mask
Before you step on the dance floor, make sure you are wearing a mask. You can grab one from Migrating Masks. There are no new masks this year but quite a few old masks have been unretired! Note: any item with the word 'mask' in the name should work for dancing, rarity doesn't matter.

Green Musical Light Pen
D0990
Midnight Black Cage Skirt
Send Noods Sticker
Neon Atebus Sign

Spirit in the Machine
Fig Sherbert
Cucumber Wingy Zingy Bracelet
Ziaran Byte Bite
Coffee Alexander
While dancing, you have the chance at getting Steamworks Trinkets or Lounge Trinkets. The Lounge Trinkets can be spent on delicious foods and drinks at the Libertine Lounge while Steamworks Trinkets can be spent for all sorts of goodies at the Steamworks Menagerie. This is the only wave of items for both shops, enjoy!

Keep an eye out for Boudewijn while you dance. If you manage to win a duel with him, he’ll give you a bag of trinkets. He won’t actually kill you in a duel, so no worries there!

Oh, and just a reminder! You have a chance of unlocking the Dancing Steamwork Style achievement when using the Mystery Dance feature. This achievement will give you the rad Steamwork Masquerade avatar border. When you dance with people you choose (like friends, on threads, etc), you have the chance to unlock the achievement Dancing Rave Style which will give you the bright Rave Masquerade avatar border. These were added last year and are back for you to get this year!

Anyone have the link to the invite page where you accept/decline dance invitations? Lost it, gotta make sure I haven't missed accepting any...

Boudewijn is in hiding I haven't seen him yet either
Celesdragon @ 05/28/22 9:52 pm
Dang, I've clicked "go to the dancefloor" for every single dance over the last two days, and still no Boudewijn. Feeling a bit stood up this year. =)

Is he only found on the dance floor? o_O

I have been dancing a lot and still haven't come across Boudewijn. :(

The profile images are working now, that's awesome! Makes it a lot more fun to visit the dance floor.

The images on invites and the dance floor are working! Woo!

oh no-- I love D0990. i would die to protect D0990. i need about 10 D0990s in real life ;W;/

Hiallina

Boudewijn is being very shy here as well...

1

NoCuteNameForMe

Really getting a complex here..... Only one dance has been interrupted by Boudewijn, since the beginning of Masque. Is he too scared? Afraid my wrath will be too much for him?
2

Ana_Bolinho

Anyone else's ballroom not showing the avatars? D: They are not loading and it's a shame, it's so cute to see them side by side when dancing!
0

Efferd

Anyone else having problems to dance? I can't access the forums either because I'm not logged in on new subeta (I'm aware of the problem, but how the hell do I log in if it isn't loading?).

CastlesInTheSky

I start at the bottom of the comments & work my way up at least once a day

StarShadow

Agree with Delphi. I've only had 3 duels despite doing dozens and dozens of dances and going to the dance floor every single time. I wish the chances of dueling were better. Also disappointed not to see anyone's HA on the dance floor.
1

Delphi

I've only gotten Boudewijn once these past couple days, and I've seen people saying they go through 100 + dances and don't get him. I feel like he shouldn't be quite that rare. And the images still aren't working, might be for the best though? They'd probly lag and/or crash the site..

Funkykitsune

I can't see anyone's avatar on the dance floor....I dressed up all nice and fancy for nothing :/

Happy Masquerade, y'all!!! First one for me :)

Mort

What's going on! Either I get blank pages or HTTP ERROR 500s, I cannot dance in these conditions lol!
3

Bliss

It's beyond frustrating right now to play Subeta. Try to dance? The site dies. Try to quest? The site dies. Try to comment? Yup, you guessed it.
3

Tammynoneed20

I'm dancing and using the mystery dancing I'm having so much fun but today it messes up and dont want to load right but even a blank page I'm loving this
1

Bliss

I swear not a lot of users are on for Masq? I use the mystery dance option almost all day long (when I can) and I barely get mystery dances. I find it odd?
3

Xezvi

@DixieNight
Yes, if you deny a dance, neither of you get trinkets, and you won't receive a link to go to the dance floor. There is actually an achievement you get by denying a dance, so people don't usually take it personally.

Any news on the broken dance floor? It just doesn't feel like Masq without being able to see your partners!

Scribe

I’m so bummed about the broken dance floor. It’s my favorite part of Masq. And now Boudewijn broke mid-duel. :c

Tammynoneed20

Yea I danced alot and I haven't seen Boudewijn yet either maybe we just need to keep dancing to wake him up I hope to see him soon i look forward to the battle

BoaConstrictor

I still can't see people and most of all no Boudewijn, even though my feet hurt like mad from dancing for 2 days :-(

Stiles

i don't need anything, but if anyone needs a dance, dance at me and i'll get you back.

@Spatial that is correct. The masquerade forums haven't had usernames for as long as I can remember.

Delphi

I hope human avatar images start working on the dance floor and ivatations soon, it's kinda un immersive :c

NekoHime

@Kinky hmm... so if I see him? Also ( if he cuts in on me, imma wip his ass. <.<)
0

Kinky

@NekoHime, When you accept a dance, or somebody accepts the dance with you, click the link to go to the dance floor. If Boudewijn is there, he'll interrupt your dancing. You essentially will play a game of rock, paper, scissors with him. If you win, you receive a prize.

@DevilsRider I think the chisel mask is inspired by the Dragon Priest masks from Skyrim.

@Nicole
Well, I lost two out of the three duels so my luck isn't that much better lol. I hope you see Boudewijn soon (and kick his butt!)
1

Nicole

Thanks for letting me know @Synth! I must just be unlucky lol. :laughing:
0

Synth

@Nicole
I've gotten three duels so that's definitely working. I think dancefloor HA images are broken for everyone; I do hope they fix that soon.
4

Nicole

I still have blank images on the dance floor and I’ve never gotten a duel since the event started and I’ve gone to the dance floor over 100 times. Am I just unlucky or is it not working?
2

Bliss

I have blank HA images on the mystery dance floor and the HA image is also blank when I go to accept a dance
2

DixieNight

What happens to denied dances? Do people get no prizes or something?
0

NekoHime

Hey is anyone noticing the blank images on the dance floor? Is that normal?

@kaliope
Boudewijn can interrupt dances and ask for duel, there you can click on one of three swords few times, so you can win the duel by clicking on swords and then you will get bags of trinkets.
I somehow manage to won almost every time.

@Unwritten Thank you! I received another border several weeks ago that I also didn't know how to access, and I found it there, too! Can I have this dance?

See my comment below this one. I forgot the @ in the first one and wanted to make sure you saw the response.

Go to your Wardrobe, click on Personal in the top banner, then select 'Cosmetics'. Your avatar borders are there. :-)

Danny_Sadler

I got a notification that I've "unlocked the Steamwork Masquerade Avatar Border," but I have no idea how to access it. I'm still very new to the site compared to a lot of people, and this is my first Masquerade.

@Camilla Will look into this! It's very annoying, there was an issue last night with an item already having the original name of that so some things got a little funky on the back end.

@Phantomhive
Mystery dances will sometimes award items from a pool of things we want back in circulation, sounds like it's working as intended!

@BoaConstrictor
We're keeping an eye on this, in terms of images on the dancefloor or in invitations/acceptance it might be the cache, um, catching up.
