    Apologies, I must have missed the hint whilst dealing with the myriad game issues that have made playing ark a nightmare the last several months.  Must pay better attention.  Come to think of it, so should Wild Card.  Pay better attention, I mean, to your player base.

    Servers in Asia are under daily ddos attacks, but no one has been seen to solve this problem.  I think the Asian server should be set up in Japan is the right choice.

    We can't even retrieve most Asian servers!  We were very happy when we retrieved these servers, but always failed to connect!  Then we have a headache!

    Seriously? 1 Week and no 2x Taming for Event Colours?
     
    3x breeding rates are already enough. What dino u looking for that is so hard to tame on 1x rate? If u only want colors look for very low level dinos with it, faster to tame

    So @Cedric, is there any word about Valentine's Day Chocolates working for passive tames this go-around?  It sure is nice using them on KO-tames, but not being able to use them for passives is a bit of a bummer.

    Sounds good though, the event.  Can't wait!

    How much is actually going to be on switch because like the Christmas event there wasn’t a lot of stuff only the modifiers.

    Last couple of valentines there was reduced food consumption, is that going to be the same on this one just not mentioned or are we not getting that?

    so chocolates won't be dropping when breeding dinos?

    I'm mildly disappointed if this is the case, given that people are going to be breeding dinos around the clock anyhow, so not having chocolates drop (think it was 30% chance in past years iirc) isn't going to help with server performance. If anything, we're going to be breeding dinos even more often during event given that we'll be online fishing all day, instead of being offline in between breeding sessions and giving servers a break.

    Some things are fine to change, but this probably is going to get some ire from people if breeding doesn't drop chocolates anymore during valentine event.

    What's the use of these breedingevents while you guys;

    -Restart servers each day, thus timers for hatching/maturing are totally screwed

    -Are not ACTIVELY live by your own CoC, just to guard your own "laws"?

    -Do not respond and or refund lost babies due to serveroutages (yesterday!!!) even with 1000% proof!

    -Do not even test out these events yourself?

    Is there anything in particular that would help?

    Sorry for the late reply Cedric did not get a notification.

    You do good work on the community posts just words are hard sometimes for me cause well my disability.

    Just needed that clarification making sure fishing is the only way to get them which sounds like the case so thats good to know :). 

    if info as clear of day like you have with the rates and new skins, no issue I can understand it but when it like what you had with the fishing one it confused me cause I know in the original events you had to get skins/items say for example you had to collect bones then suddenly in the version 2 of event you have to now grab falling gifts.

    So for example Ced instead of what you have now for me it would work better.

    Header chibi's 

    In order to get the chibi's you need to fish for them time round. 

    Feel free to make it creative but as long at the end of the day if it clear as day as what you got above with

    Wild Event Creature Colors

    • Red
    • Magenta
    • Light Red
    • White

    Then I am all set and no issue. Also cheers for taking notice and following up. You do an amazing job Cedric, keep it up :).

    Will server owners have the option to prolong this event? We didn't with Winter Wonderland 4 and it's super helpful to know these things in advance so that I can plan accordingly!

    I never got an answer if the Winter Wonderland not being extendable was intentional, would be amazing to get an answer to this @Cedric :)

    I always look forward to events with fun colors, I love taming and breeding the colors into lines but not being in a tribe anymore kinda puts a damper on playing during events.

    too bad your game is still trash finding exports too late and punishing people that had nothing to do with the exploits
