    More likely to happen in the other game. Optimus Prime was originally meant to have a Jamaican accent.

    here in AUS madri gras are a LGBT celebration.

    so with an event that only some countries celebrate,
    that differs in time of year,
    and differs in meaning behind it,
    i really cant see it as something for a game to celebrate.

    Chinese New Year, Christmas, April Fool's Day, Valentine's Day, not everyone celebrates these holidays, yet Kabam still does events for them. However I don't think Mardi Gras will have anything, they haven't done it before so very unlikely they'll start.

    I think the reason these holidays are celebrated in game is because as @MaatMan said, unlike Mardi Gras, they are a little more consistent across countries with their timing and meaning. If the U.S. version of Mardi Gras was celebrated in game, it could leave some from other countries that celebrate it, a little confused. Regardless, happy Mardi Gras to everyone who celebrates it!
  • Yeahhhh Mardi Gras!!!!!! 4 star gambit at the end of a 7 day calendar with mystic mutant and science stuff (Mardi Gras colors) seems legit!!!!!

    So you guys just completely screwed up Mardi Gras that's on you.

    Mardi Gras also falls inline with carnivale season in south America which is huge.

    I don't think Mardi Gras should be an in game event, just saying that your reasoning is awful

    How is saying that you completely changed what a holiday was about and screwed with it homophopic? I don't care if you changed it to a celebration of dogs, it's still not Mardi Gras. What it was changed to is not the problem

    It's supposed to be one big blow out before Lent where people give up a bunch for religious reasons. It has nothing to do with sexuality whatsoever

    (certainly came across as saying it was destoyed due to LGBT motivation)

    for one i never changed anything.
    and for another changing something does not mean destroying it.

    for thousands of years different counties and cultures have taken something from one another and put their own spin / adaptation on it.
    this is normal human / cultural behavior.

    point is that events change, events evolve.
    cutures put their own spin on things.
    always have, always will.

    LGBT community using Madi Gras as a way to express themselves is not in anyway destroying Mardi Gras.

    capitalisim making christmas all about spending money on people destroys Christmas more.
    easter these days seems to be more about people eating chocalte rabbits and easter bunny than the religious background it has.
    capitalism and greed are wat destroys event and celebrations.

    not people celebrating things in their own way.

    Perhaps they could actually implement a Lenten calendar where you give up something, say, one item removed from inventory every day.

    Ash Wednesday...also a day that should be marked in MCoC. Maybe a global incinerate debuff for AQ?

    Ugh does everything have to involve politics quite frankly I don't know or care who is homophobic and who isn't. I personally have never celebrated Mardi gras but they did a Valentine's event with deadpool why not do a Mardi gras event with gambit?

    I want a St George's Day event where they add Union Jack and Captain Britain and you fight Fin Fang Foom.

    Make a “get past the wall” event while you’re at it

    "It might surprise you to learn that Mardi Gras is actually a Catholic term describing the celebrations leading up to Lent. The Carnival starts on the day of the feasts of the Epiphany (Mary’s, to be precise) and finishes on Shrove Tuesday, or, Fat Tuesday. Basically, it’s a festival of gluttony, with everyone fattening up before the 40 days of fasting during Lent."

    Mardi Gras has basically become that idea of a festival. Whether they use it in NoLa as a way to eat and get drunk and do whatever you want to do (trust me, I've been there and the things are see aren't very Catholic, but they are enjoying a festival which is the meaning of it). The French brought it to NoLa because of their own ways of using it as well as South America. To them it means Fat Tuesday but celebrated a lot different. Still a festival. Sydney's Mardi Gras is a festival to celebrate sexuality in the same way they celebrate (their own ideas) in the other countries. So, YES, it is still Mardi Gras. JUST like Halloween, since ya know...America stole the whole idea of Halloween from Dia de los Muertos from Mexico which has a TOTAL different meaning to what America celebrates it. So before you come in and say an event was screwed up by another country, use your friendly tool Google and do some research. Until then, sit back in the computer chair of yours and be quiet.

    As to the original convo of this thread, like someone pointed out Kabam uses other holidays that aren't celebrated by other countries in the same way, I don't see why they can't use Mardi Gras as one. But then that would mean why not use Mother's Day as an event for mother marvel characters and so on.
