Some of the achievements don't look wintery, others have a ridiculously long amount of achievements to get in 2 weeks time. Although I hope you are right OP. I rather enjoyed the summer ticket thing.

Might be that you just need a specific one of them and the rest is just for fun. I seem to recall that some games had the same thing during the summer ticket contest.

Yeah, Killing Floor is the obvious one, I don't think TWI ever missed any of those events. The weapons are fully revealed now and probably end in free dlc and a free week(end) later today.
The Steam event is still far off imo, so the weapon dlc might be unrelated to their christmas event.

Placeholder name and description again, but it has a snowflake as the achievement icon, so I take this one as a sure bet.



Oh, also Defcon switched its placeholder out for a winter achievement:
Merry Christmas
Nuke Santa and thereby end Christmas for everyone, for ever more

I'm not doubting there's tons of fat Americans, I know there are. I see them every day and I used to feed them on a regular basis in my previous job, but obesity is hardly unique to the USA and is becoming a huge problem in the UK.

Quote:
Meanwhile separate government statistics show that more than 60 per cent of adults in England and a third of 10 and 11-year-olds are obese.

Quote:
When almost a third of U.S. children are at least overweight, and about 17 percent are obese, it's harder to notice that there's anything unusual about their own families.

http://yourlife.usatoday.com/parenti...ght/51657822/1
Quote:
More than 6 in 10 American adults (62.9%) were either overweight (36.3%) or obese (26.6%) in 2010, on par with 2009, but still slightly more than the 62.2% in 2008. The corollary of this is that the percentage of Americans of normal weight, now 35.4%, was also about the same last year as in 2009, but down slightly from 2008.

I know it was just a lighthearted jab, but I thought I'd go ahead and provide some food for thought.
