    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.

    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.
    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.

    Why do people say "no offense" right when they're about to offend you?

    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

    Nobody is being left out. In case nobody has realized, this is a game; more specifically, a game that everybody has access to.

    The second we start claiming aspects of culture in a virtual world is the day the community actually becomes the stupidest one on the internet. Let us be clear: there is no problem with the update at all. There is a problem with the name?

    Aspects of culture are assimilated, conglomerated, and altered daily. It is not the fault of Ubisoft that they want to appeal to the majority of the western world by recognizing it how it is named in those cultures. "Chinese" New Year is not exclusively Chinese, and anyone that does not live in a bubble knows this. So why complain? It is just an adjective that has been used for years to summarize a celebration that has been ongoing in several Asian countries for years — nothing more.

    Of course, I would not expect much a counterpoint since the OP has a history of making atrocious, indefensible remarks regarding how poorly Growtopia is run.

    Without us whining and keep complaining.. they will think that we are SATISFIED with the update where in fact that lot of us do not satisfied at all, even some of us offended

    Btw Australia Day celebrated mainly focused in Australia only and US Independence day celebrated mainly in America..

    AND Chinese New Year celebrated in many asia country because they are celebrated by Chinese (race), not celebrated in China Only!

    And dont you dare to start argument with St. Patrick's day as they celebrated in US, UK, Canada, Brazil and Irish
    If you or anyone else is actually offended by this, then perhaps you should break out of your bubble and live a little. The world does not cater to you; rather, the converse is truer.
    Been playing Growtopia since 2010.

    Whatever timeline I am living in, I want out.

    Cultures blend, they change, yes. However, this is not a matter of cultures changing, this is a matter of outsiders to the culture misinterpreting it. They are not improving or changing it, they are just showing that they don't understand it. However, again, I am happy that they decided to make CNY on Growtopia, it shows inclusivity, but it needs to be done correctly. The naming isn't that bad, but they just need to be careful, especially with other things like the kinds of graphics on blocks (ie temple wallpaper).

    Okay good point. We're considering calling it Lunar New Year instead. Also no need for that last part. Try to be respectful in the forum based on the Growtopian Code:
