Can we get an annual new LNY pet please?

arcana • 25 Jan 2020, 12:06 AM

Would love it if there were 12 lunar animals that they would cycle through. It's the year of the rat!

happy lunar new year!! I liked the Shengxiao, but it is odd they had released the Lan back in 2018 for the lunar new year and never brought it back. + a new animal would have been awesome, but we just had the CRWs.

noooo! why no rat creatures?! shengxiao is an overrated creatur!

murfijs • 25 Jan 2020, 1:40 AM

@arcana yeah i agree!

Lunar New Year Creatures is/was a solid concept ... Why is there a delay to create a complete set of creatures for it to cycle through instead of primarily only one ?

Dang, I thought I ate that chicken last year.

sparklefox • 25 Jan 2020, 6:31 AM

It's nice to see the fancy chicken return.

murfijs • 25 Jan 2020, 8:05 AM

@sparklefox oof thats what u think

bubblez • 25 Jan 2020, 11:06 AM

Yay! I wasn't here when they released these and they're beautiful Hopefully I can get one

brookie • 25 Jan 2020, 11:21 AM

@wild_wonders Agreed!!

It is so sad to be in the year of a different animal and you get a chicken. I strongly agree with others that there should be 12 different seasonal for every one of the zodiac animals. And while you might think:

prairie • 25 Jan 2020, 11:39 AM

"But if I miss the creature this year, I'll have to wait 11 more years for it to come back!" You can still trade for it, but in the meantime it will gain value until it's time comes again - and it would be a great way for users who can't get csps to have good trading fodder.

prairie • 25 Jan 2020, 11:42 AM

Or you know, if mods really wanted to give people to get the chance at their zodiac every year - you could have that year's animal avalible in the cave while all the rest are released in the VEND at the same time the year's animal is in the cave (EX: this year 25th - 31st)

asbe • 25 Jan 2020, 12:09 PM

Why cannot we have a rat? Also, we didn't get a piggy a year ago. Made me so sad

asbe • 25 Jan 2020, 12:12 PM

You could totally make a rat creature instead of redrawing two pretty decent seasonals.

raccoon • 25 Jan 2020, 1:00 PM

Welcome back Shengxaio. I agree with the others, a new creature to match the lunar new year animals would be nice, x.x I need myself a year of the rabbit dangit!

wizard • 25 Jan 2020, 1:09 PM

Looking for a female Shengxiao egg

mindassala • 25 Jan 2020, 8:35 PM

@arcana Yes, I agree. I'd like to see all the Chinese zodiac animals as lunar new year creatures. Relase one each year. It'll take 12 years before one repeats!

murfijs • 26 Jan 2020, 3:04 AM

@asbe yeah this sucks

calenlass • 26 Jan 2020, 7:16 AM

Sorry EggCave higher-ups. I feel kinda bad for not seeming to appreciate the LNY creature but I do agree with the rest. And also, can we request the same price for every cove extension? The added cost to every cove extension is like a discouragement to collect creatures.

sybil_howlett • 26 Jan 2020, 9:57 AM

@calenlass I agree with you with the extensions, and I would love to see a new zodiac, please?

alityria • 26 Jan 2020, 4:09 PM

*sigh* Okay normally I wouldn't even care or comment about the LNY however seeing the Shengxiao 4 years coming back to back is kind of disappointing and boring. While reading through the comment section I have to agree with some others say.

alityria • 26 Jan 2020, 4:09 PM

The Shengxiao was introduced in 2017 along with CRW Elemental Dragons. Don't get me wrong the Shengxiao is a gorgeous creature however it's just too repetitive. In 2018 we got the Lan along with Shengxiao and it looked so promising that EC was releasing the LNY creatures...

alityria • 26 Jan 2020, 4:10 PM

...according the year theme, but in 2019 we didn't get a new LNY as well this year. It feels like EC starts with a project, but doesn't finish it instead they start with a new project like revamping creatures that don't meet the EC 'art' requirements.

alityria • 26 Jan 2020, 4:10 PM

I would rather see that one project is completed than be rotten and forgotten...

foxbit • 26 Jan 2020, 6:40 PM

As much as I like the Shengxiao, I agree with the above comments. I'd like a rat creature.
