HabboxFactor is an official Habbox Live event that has taken place twice in the run up towards Christmas. It first took place in 2006 and was organised by Adzeh and Uwe. It returned in 2012 under the control of the Habbox Live Manager, Foregetfuhl. Although Habbox Live held a similar version during December 2011 called Xmas Factor.
The Event is similar to HabboxStarz and requires members entering via submission of a song they have sung; however, the Christmas version offers different prizes alongside other Competitions and themes.
In 2006 when the first HabboxFactor took place there was 1 winner and 2 runners-up. The competition had various rounds for which voting took place via private messaging on Habbox Forum. The four finalists of the competition were GJay, -sFusions-, Dudeitsme and PippinThree. The original prizes where as followed:
- 1st Place: 6 months Forum VIP colour of your choice, 35 Habbo Credits, and two HC Sofas.
- 2nd Place: 3 months Forum VIP colour of your choice and one HC Sofa.
- 3rd Place: 1 months Forum Prize Winner subscription.
In 2012 Habbox Live manager, Foregetfuhl decided to bring back HabboxFactor for a second run. The prizes were as followed:
- 1st place: 200 credits, 3 months Habboxforum VIP and a Gold Forum Award.
- 2nd place: 100c, 2 month HabboxForum VIP and a Silver Forum Award.
- 3rd place: 50c, 1 month HabboxForum VIP and a Bronze Forum Award.
How To Submit & Elimination Rounds
The application to this event was very simple; You recorded yourself singing a song. It could be anywhere between thirty seconds to two minutes in length. After the due date for all submissions went by, there would be voting dates where you would be able to vote for your favourite singer. Each round eliminated singers, until there were only a few singers left. This would be typically be the final night. They would go into a last "sing off" where they would play the last singers standing's voice clips. You had to choose from those who would be the winner.
