    One of our most notable helpers, RaptorClaus, will be back to drop off holiday gifts filled with loot, event items, mistletoe, and lumps of coal for all those naughty survivors.  You'll be able to catch RaptorClaus flying across the skies at midnight (game time) on all maps.

    GachaClaus is also returning to help RaptorClaus spread the holiday cheer!  GachaClaus will be roaming all maps in holiday garb and sporting holiday-themed colors. He will be accepting your coal and in exchange will gift you holiday themed items, or you can trade in your mistletoe and coal for a chance at event items. weapons, armor and a brand new event item, Chibis!

    While Winter Wonderland is active, you'll have a chance to collect over 50 ARK chibi petsARK chibi pets are cute miniaturized versions of the creatures you have become familiar with in your travels across the ARK universe.  Chibi's pets can be leveled up by killing specific alpha creatures and in return, you'll be granted additional player levels .  Some chibi pets may be harder to find so you'll have to visit GachaClaus and RaptorClaus to find all the chibi pets!  Can you collect them all?

    AT THE TIME OF THIS POST, TAMING WASN'T PART OF THE EVENT!

    Why no 2x taming? At least for this one event. I love the 2x breeding don’t get me wrong but I’d love to tame my favorite creatures without wasting half of my day.

    y no 2x taming we just had this in the last event. 2x taming would help out the beginners and people who ain't in large tribes

    Can we please have an event where we get purple 31 on more than just one color zone? =\  Purple would have been a fine winter wonderland color.  I'm excited about the chibis though.

    Can you please address the characters lost during the latest server roll back!

    i’ve had a ticket in for a week now with no response. 

    First it was a LOCKOUT timer so I left my character in the ob and got off...

    Then you rolled the servers to “help??” Some players right after I get back on and download to my server causing my to loose my only character...

    now I can’t even get a “we’ve received your ticket and will get back to you in approximately ...” letter...

    All week... crickets...

    Babies... dead...

    generators... running low...

    imprints and ob... gone...

    ticket... submitted...

    all week... crickets...

    Maybe the next CC will contain actual information about the DLC that's dropping a month late.....

    So long as they don't pull an Atlas on us again and turn what should be a dlc into a different game.

    Though next year can we get other holidays that are not Christmas but are occurring at the same time acknowledged... like Hanukkah?
