    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?

    According to Cedric on twitter, they add up to 5 to player level cap... so if you're 135 now, can now go to 140.  Taming was just  added per Cedric's twitter too.  Wonderful new additions, can't wait to see the chibis… Thank you WC!

    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.

    Damn tired of breeding events. Bring back 2x taming during events

    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

    After the problems with the last couple of events I'm both apprehensive about this one and yet excited about the new pets. Please WC, be Santa and not the Grinch with the delivery of this event...

    You should read the rest of the comments. Namely the one that explains they added 2x taming to the event after they made their comments. So they may have influenced them to add it.

    Alright guys, can we all please stop arguing about the rates? At first, taming wasn't included. It was added and edited in later. End of story. Thanks, and enjoy the event! :)

    Don't be a d**k... or would you rather have bugs to whine about like a little turd?
     
    Seriously they delay it in order to ensure it will be less buggy and people like you throw a temper tantrum because you have nothing better to do with your lives...
    Dont be a c##k, take the money and delay the delivery of goods is breach of Consumer Laws in my country. Wildcard HAVE NEVER delivered anything on time and when they do, it is still full of bugs.

    So what does Nintendo switch get? Maybe the toilets finally work? 

    The ability to play pokemon. Seriously though switch port is all but abandoned if you wanna play ark I suggest getting it on something else.

    If it’s abandoned then wildcard needs to state that otherwise this feels like the movie Office Space and the switch community was thrown in the basement without the stapler and “the Bobs” stopped sending pay checks (patches/updates)
