I don't know if anyone here noticed but at the teaser site of The Lost Shores update you can see at the top the Shadow of Mad King Update , The Lost Shores Update and a lock December Update.

What do you think it will contain aside from the Wintersday Event?

Start Disscusing xD

Wintersday is a given. How it's going to be celebrated remains to be seen. Hope we get some candy cane weapons :D

well, if not enough ppl will buy lion chest keys, then they will eventually drop it. in the long run, they will keep only what brings them money.

Hmm, if the Gods have withdrawn, how do you think that will affect the Winterday celebration?

Very much ^^

I believe there was a post somewhere from one of the devs about this.
Stating that it will be very different from the GW1 Wintersday but that they didn't want to spoil anything.

I, for one, look forward to secular Wintersday.

Maybe Grenth's minions will just bubble up from the Underworld out of a misguided sense of tradition?

(A minion of) Jormag will make it snow in Lion's Arch and the event is about defeating it and saving the world from being snowy forever :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

I'm waiting for the Candy Cane weapon skins as a random award from the black lion chests, and the QQ I spent $50 in keys and got nothing. It's not that Anet is smart enough to continue this RNG to get profit, it's that players are dumb enough to continue to do it again.

I am excited to see what ArenaNet comes up with because as you correctly point out it won't be the Grenth & Dwayna show!

Maybe we can send all the Asura back to the Toy Workshop where they belong.

  Less Golems, more toy trains and stuffed animals, rodents! Get to work!

   Either that, or we can make all the Asura in Lion's Arch hold hands and sing the Hoo song for us. Do something useful, for a change.

I say they should put a miniature train that travels through Lion's Arch, and players can jump on it and be transported around (slowly).

You must not like children very much to wish them toys made by Asura.

"Ooh, mama, look at the pretty mechanical ballerina."

Followed by screaming.

If WvW isn't substantially improved it doesn't matter what they do.

I'm fully expecting an actual santa claus stand-in this time around. (In the same way that king thorn = pumpkin king.) That's basically what you are left with once religion is gutted.

I fixed it for you, no problem by the way.

the shear willpower needed to even think up this list astonishes me.  I salute you.

on topic, there will be an exciting idea, followed by mediocre execution with much QQing from the community, and millions of "WAAHHHH Wintersday is bad" posts on guru containing said QQing, and a lot of market speculation on things that don't even get used in the event.

Hmm? We have clearly managed 6 (soon 7) years in GW1 without a Santa stand-in. Why should that change?

Which is why I will not be using any keys during any of these events. I have four sitting in the bank right now that went untouched during the Halloween event. Call it QQ'ing, whining, whatever you want - I don't care. lol
