      Oh lemme add on before this thread gets closed for purposeful shitposting. I never had thought this never clicks in peoples' mind to even bother supporting these threads when it 100% guarantee makes absolutely 0 change in this game. And if it does, then it would probably mean you literally just strike jackpot cause we never knew Ubisoft actually listens to tiny comment threads like these.

          The forums are not just a big attempt at getting Ubisoft's attention. This is a discussion. We are discussing the naming of CNY, regardless of whether Ubisoft respond. Also, nobody is screaming.

In the name "Chinese New Year", "Chinese" does not merely mean "for people from China". It's meaning is closer to "Asian". However, since the event and calendar originated in China, it is fair to keep the name "Chinese" -- at least until it is officially decided by society that it should be changed. The global calendar system, the one that is now in 2019, is officially called the Gregorian calendar -- but there aren't many Gregorians!

              Your examples do not fit. A better ****ogy would be if Americans also celebrated Australia Day, and held part of their identity in Australia Day. As an American, you would appreciate being included in the naming. Also, it is not China's national day, it is a celebration of the new calendar year.

                Before you talk about how it doesn't even cover the other countries celebrating the Lunar New Year, can we first talk about how the items themselves, despite trying to celebrate the Chinese New Year, do not even cover the event whatsoever?

                Like seriously, FORTUNE COOKIES? That's the biggest effing insult in my face. It's like Ubisoft simply went to a chinese restaurant and took the fortune cookies. Fortune Cookies are AMERICAN. They're MADE IN AMERICA, and ONLY USED IN AMERICA. It does not even COVER Chinese New Year whatsoever, except for the fact that they are used in CHINESE RESTAURANTS in places OUTSIDE OF CHINA. What's worse is that they had a YEAR to cover for that and replace them with Red Envelopes, something that is ACTUALLY part of the holiday, but nope. We're still stuck with the biggest insult of a "chinese" new year item this year.

                I'm not being ungrateful; I simply believe, that Ubisoft, at the very minimum, should do proper research on the customs of a holiday.

                    I’m not saying the update is I’m saying that they shouldn’t generalize it that way because it leaves out a large community of people.

                      To be honest, when we got Chinese New year, it wasn't gonna be as big as the other events. And like they've done a pretty good job. I wasn't expecting crazy amounts of stuff, and the items this update are crazy good.

                        Yeah, but can’t they just add in more stuff and not generalize it as “Chinese New Year” like the traditional lion head and body, a lot of Asian countries lion dance. Also traditional clothing like the “Ao Dai” from Vietnam.

                        Edit: By the way, I do not aim any hate toward the developers. I just want them to know that they are leaving a huge community of people out. If they are aware of this however, I will take slight offense to that.

                          You got to hand it to a company who doesn’t want to spend just half an hour studying Asian culture on Wikipedia, though. This is pretty insulting, however, like people other than Americans spend F’ing money on the game too, and that is all they care about, pay attention to them.

                            Hello, we should appreciate that the developers take their time think out all the way to celebrate this awesome event with us. Stop judging with those negative words. Appreciate it, the tittle of the event doesn't really matter, the only thing that matter is the purpose of this event, should be glad that all the growtopians are celebrating with us.

                                They didn't think though, have the stuff doesn't make sense according to other people( I have no knowledge on what is correct, but I'll take their word for it)

                                as for the topic, I don't see any major problem with it being called that, but it would have sounded a bit better with Lunar New Year, makes it more universal
