Kuala Lumpur, 21 Jan 2020 - Rats are getting a redemption arc in idle clicker Crab War's Lunar New Year event! Swarms of warrior crabs are here to celebrate the Year of the Rat in good old-fashioned Crab War style: level up, get all the gifts, and make the rascally reptiles into ratatouille!


While rats aren't known for bringing good fortune, 2020 is the Year of the Metal Rat, an auspicious occurrence which only comes once every 60 years. Players can take advantage of this rare occasion and earn the Lucky Mouse Shell as a shield from misfortune, as well as collect red packets from the Fortune Butterfly to trade for many other rewards. 


In addition, players can purchase the Fortune Mouse Shell, which is painted a brilliant red, the color of good luck and joy. Alternatively, don the delicate pink Blossom Mouse Shell. Inspired by peach blossoms that symbolize prosperity and growth, it may help you grow your army of crabs to even more epic proportions! 


New players will want to keep an eye out for the return of the old gods. For those who missed last year's event, make sure to summon the divine shells of the Azure Dragon, Vermillion Bird, and White Tiger from ancient Chinese mythology.


The next Year of the Metal Rat will be in 2080, so this may be your only chance to celebrate it... ever. Grasp this golden opportunity - join Crab War's Lunar New Year Event now!
