How to Play Windtrace

Play Hide and Seek as Hunters and Rebels


Windtrace is a Hide and Seek event where players are divided into Hunters and Rebels. The Hunters' job is to seek out the Rebels in hiding, while the Rebels have to sneakily avoid getting caught!

Use the event matching function to find randomized games and earn Windtrace coins, which are currency used to buy Event Shop items.
