    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?

    So chibis are real cute but....you have to put them in your offhand? Can’t have more than 1 and they follow you around?? Not what i was expecting and really don’t think i will spend much time trying to collect them especially since the level boost is only temporary. And what about Primitive PLus??? No events for us I guess. So sad

    So chibis are like the mini hlna where you can only "equip" one at a time and they just follow you around? I was kind of hoping for them to be actual creatures and you could collect and set them up in a mini petting zoo type thing...yeah I know, I'm a big kid in an adult's body... 😎

    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.

    Amen! Purple has been the hardest color to get, and rarely seen since Extinction chronicles.  And I lost mist of my purple collection back in July when my island disappeared. "Hardware malfunction" 😒

    So disappointed in this update.  My tribe chose our base location based on the abilities and mechanics of the game before this broken event started.  No cryopods mean no farming metal on ab...no farming element on extinction...no farming period really...if you lag out when logging in to your base you get a time out before you can lag out again...no experience can be gained at all...I'm stuck at level 101 on this new character...to top that off I lost my character to a roll back a month ago and it was supposed to get restored on the 19th! How you gonna restore my lost xp if xp cant even be earned anymore?  GLORIOUS 2 thumbs down...fix this broken game please!

    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...

    You speak from a position of ignorance.....EVERY Ark release has had serious bugs! They still have 3 year old bugs in the core game mechanics!

    Wildcard needs to add a pacifier and a box of tissues to the game for all those whom whine and cry about the game and yet still play. Just go put on some sunscreen  and go outside already...that's where air comes from!

    Thank you for coming 5 preview.jpg

    You must work for wildcard...how about you get back to work on fixing your broken game or get a new job 😝

    I paid for this game.  I paid for the dlcs. I think I'll stick around and complain till they learn how to fix what I paid for!  Winter Wonderland, what a joke!  Why put out an update that is clearly so broken? When simple things like gaining xp in an xp based game isn't working could there have been any testing at all?

    Gg wildcard...

    Hahahaha! That would be cool to be on the payroll. I could always use a little extra cash. I paid for the game too bud but i am not going to come here and cry about it and make myself look like an obsessed child. Put in a bug report and play the game. If you cant play right now do something else until its fixed. If you think coming here and crying like a child makes you feel better then grab your pacifier and tissues and cry....I will be laughing.

    That's just it my little friend, I did put in a petition a month ago to fix my character lost through no fault of my own.  The very soonest this could be corrected was a month later which is in 2 days from today.  I lost a character and had to start over and now 2 days before I have my imprints restored and my xp given back gaining xp is broken.  Also I have over 200 cryopodded tames with 100% imprint that they said all needs to be thrown out in order to be imprinted back to my character.  If I toss them all out to get my imprints back I cant put them back away...

    You call it crying, i call it being ripped off.  I've waited a month patiently to have my issue fixed and if the new broken issues aren't resolved I'll have to wait another month for a new petition I'm sure...

    All this comes after losing everything 6 months ago to meshers.  I turned those meshers in 2 full months before my main base got meshed and 3 days after i lost a year and a half of grinding to cheaters they banned the people who did it...there is a trending theme of too little too late going on here.

    Do you have room for an extra 200+ tames in addition to breeders, velos and essential tames at your base if you cant put any of them away after?  Am I crying? I guess I am!  I'll take that box of tissues along with a full refund for not only the game but the lost hours of time playing a game that gets more broken with each and every event thanks!

    Is it just me, or do the devs just ban some of their most active players and pretend that the game is fine, while people are getting meshed and clustered. They just keep putting out new content to avoid the hideous fact that the game is broken and will never be fixed because they are to lazy to do somthing about it.

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

    Did you ever try snapping it to a working water pipe? I was surprised how many people didn't know that on PC.

    mostly awesome but permanent level cap increase from a temporary event? especially one that is on at a time when most of us are very busy? that part is a bit harsh! do we get any way to get this cap increase once the event is over or are the people not so busy during the christmas period going to have a permanent advantage?

    1, Will chibis still be obtainable after the event?

    2, Will obtained chibis still exist after the event?

    3, If so, will we still be able to increase max level with obtained chibis after the event?

    Level boost is not temporary, it is permanent.

    I would like to point out here again to us switch players who receive no updates and are ignored. I hope the fan community of other platforms help us to exert pressure on wildcard. I would therefore like to help everyone who wants to help us switch players not to buy genesis and to point out the switch. we switch players also financed the dlc with the purchase price from ark. I would be happy if the community now helps us to increase the pressure on wildcard to finally serve us with updates. There is also no optimization or bug fixes.

    Hi, 

    I wonder when 304.1 updates of the winter event will arrive at MacOS users? To have the possibility to play ARK on actual servers? 

    All concept of servers and plays in the community are impossible because of the different versions. 

    A week ago was updated to v303.1,  and MacOS users moved from 302.1 to older version 300.0 (How does it possible?)

    If you cannot provide all update simultaneously for all do not do events!
