  • Community Crunch 211: Winter Wonderland 4

    Winter Wonderland will be returning for the fourth time on Tuesday with all new presents for ARK survivors.  The winter-themed holiday event begins tomorrow at 10am PST for PC, XBOX, and PS4 and will last until Tuesday, January 7th.  All maps will receive Winter Wonderland and all its content including RaptorClaus and GachaClaus, however only The Island will have a visual winter theme.

    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?

    For those of you complaining about no 2x taming, re read the post. Its 2x everything.

    
     Increased rates to 2X Breeding (mating interval, egg hatch speed, and maturation)
        Increased rates to 2X Player XP
        Increased rates to 2X Harvesting
        Increased rated to 2X Taming

    When the CC was posted , X2 taming wasn’t a feature for this event . X2 taming was added AFTER people start complaining. So instead of facepalm those guys maybe a ... try to understand what happened and where the requests are coming from and I don’t know ... shut up and Thank Those that made the change happen ... 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    Please stop with the comments regarding the 2x taming.

    2x taming WAS NOT in the original Crunch, it was edited in later.

    There is no need to keep on about this.

    Ya'll realise that you spend months complaining about not getting breeding events then when they start doing them you proceed to  complain about not taming as well.  FFS never satisfied!  How about you stop complaining and appreciate that Ced is trying to listen and change WHAT HE CAN for us.

    SUPER EXCITED!!!

    Sorry for all caps, but I'm having trouble sitting still ☺️ 

    Chibis sound amazing, I can't wait to try to collect all of them - gotta catch 'em all! Only thing I'm worried about is this:

    Raptor Claus:

            Gifts some special items like holiday structures, some skins, color candies, and chibis.

    The best part of last year was all the better quality BPs and items we got in the Raptor Claus drops, as well as the polymer and other resources. Of course, it could just not be listed... Oh well, only a few hours left, I'll see soon enough. And either way, I'm sooooo excited!!! :D

    People really need to carefully look at the description in what is being offered!  Looks like 2x taming!

    It would also help if you read through all the posts in this topic before posting so that it would have saved you making such a post. People seem to stop at the first post they see to reply to it without bothering to continue. It's as if everyone is eager to pick at other people.

    That's just the normal complain cycle. Next step is the same players complaining about server performance caused by a combination of mass breeding and taming. 😉

    Oh don't worry, knowing the population of this forum, it will soon be "these chibis are causing my server to lag, it's game breaking and unplayable, FIX EEETT"
