Not sure why the new PvP weapons are not advertised on the forums or annotated in the update notes, but if you haven't checked out the arena lately, there are new PvP weapons (Dark Sea). There are no new PvP pets.

I don't know that it has been the custom to announce the new PvP season here on the message boards. Weird that there are no new pets for Winter.

This is the first time that PvP weapons have been switched out since being introduced in 2015, so there really isn't a precedence. However, you are right that they don't announce new PvP seasons (nor should they IMO).

I guess I was expecting an update to the below announcement (i.e. hotfix 1.100.3):

I guess I'm more surprised that the Pirate101 team isn't advertising this update a little more to offer an incentive to get more players back into PvP (especially with the overall lack of updates). It isn't on the launcher, the website....don't even think it was tweeted out? The Producer's Letter hinted at an update, but was never actually announced.

Very good points -- I wish there was a "Pirate101 team" to make sure the word gets spread around.
