    Winter Wonderland will be making a triumphant return for the fifth time with new presents and goodies for ARK survivors. The winter-themed holiday event begins on December 17th at 10am PST for PC, XBOX, and PS4 and will last until Thursday, January 7th. All maps will receive Winter Wonderland and all its content including RaptorClaus and GachaClaus.

    Our very recognizable helper, RaptorClaus, is returning 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 making a come-back to help RaptorClaus spread the holiday cheer! GachaClaus will be roaming all maps in true holiday spirit while 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 7 brand new Chibis!

    Kroger sells cheese to go with that whine

    I'm just saying but the last few events have been taming including evo. This event isn't any different. You can look back at any of the cc and see that. Apparently all you have been doing is talking drivel with these reply messages.

    I've been playing this game since about since months into early access on Xbox. I love this game so much, despite all the technical issues and other ups and downs. Still a great raptoring game. Super unique gameplay and a ever growing community. Unfortunately within that community are some who only want to disrupt others fun, time and hard work. Especially with this DDoss poop. It's quite frankly maddening and frustrating. I've only played official the whole time and have dealt with it on too many occasions. But recently on my home server Genesis¬†1232, it's been beyond frustrating. DDoss around 12 to 18 hours a day. Too the point where my tribe mates know whome it is. Babies dying, structures decaying, dc'ing in a dangerous spot, etc... I usually get a chance to raise gigas, tusis and such about once a year. I lost 25 baby gigas after literally spending all day on my day off right before the juvenile stage. The common retort would be to play elsewhere. But that shouldn't be the only answer. It's a big deal for me a some other folks of the tribe being working adults with lives and families outside the world of Ark. I'm currently penning this whilst working on an assembly line building Dodge Ram 1500's! And all our eggs are usually in one basket (server) and impossible to play when unable to access said basket. And I would like to actually be able to enjoy this upcoming Christmas event and add to what we've already accrued as individuals and a tribe. I'm just almost certain that won't be possible with these attacks on our server. I've lost so much in this game over the years due to illegal play and have been past tired of it. And as excited as I am with the announcement of Ark 2, I'm hoping that hasn't shifted focus too much away from the quality of life in the current Ark. I know you have a slew of messages, tickets and whatever else coming from the community. I just hope my prayers could be answered and DDossing begone from my server and Ark as a whole. Please hear my cry...ūü•≤

    If the light pet chibis don't glow I will be very disappointed.

    Why not 2x taming, with all the pretty colors coming? Will the chibis still be craftable, since getting presents becomes Death Race Ark and people will steal chibis out of Raptor Claus presents right out from under someone? If someone lands on a present and then someone else arrives, the person with the less lag will steal everything even if someone else was there first. It was happening a lot last year, and it will be even worse this year.

    Ill assume on pve , on pvp¬† shotgun addresses that issue ūüėÉ

    Happy Holidays everyone, thank you for bringing back Winter Wonderland - for sure my favourite event. Can I hope that the we'll have the winter landscape back on the Island (at the least, would love to have wintry trees on every map)? I missed the autumn trees skipped from this year's Fear Evolved event and I would really like to see the blanket of snow back.

    Merry Xmas and have a wonderful holiday!

    I hope they fix the kibble taming bug! Some things take twice as much kibble, or other taming food, as they should. I was trying to tame a 145 titanoboa; Dododex said it should need 7 eggs to tame. I fed it thirteen and it still would have taken two more to be tamed if it hadn't picked a fight with a vulture and gotten killed

    The passive tames do not seem to be effected by the taming multiplier. Its been that way forever :( But thankfully unless your looking for terrific horrific danger noodles Titanoboas aren't necessary in the game anymore :(

    But basilisks and roll rats are necessary and they are passive tame not affected with taming boost. Its still old x1 for them.

    I like the event and how long it is. But only thing I am really upset about is that the gachaclaus have completely replaced the regular gachas and I just started taming them. I need them for an autonomous ark that I had been planning. I play on pve official and I was planning to take a bunch during the 2x event but I can't tame any. O think you should have some gachas be regular and some be gachaclaus. Now I can't tame gachas for 2 weeks and thats all I wanted to play the event for. I hope this gets heard and this can be fixed im sure I'm not the only one upset by this.
