Scramble!! for an Xmas Miracle! - Returns (2020 Rerun)
Introduction[edit | edit source]
Scramble!! for an Xmas Miracle! - Returns (2020 Rerun) is the second rerun of the original Scramble!! for an Xmas Miracle! event that ran in 2017. The event is mostly identical to the original, but with a smaller overarching goal than the original, along with a small selection of new cosmetics added for the rerun.
The season campaign is the same as last year's. Aru greets the player and allows the player to pick and open a present. However, it is revealed that Waruda has already stolen the presents. Aru asks for help from Rein and the player to find her presents and to also deliver them. The full story can be viewed here.
The rerun ran from November 25th, 2020 - December 24th, 2020.
Gift Presents![edit | edit source]
This year, for the first part of the event, the player only needs to deliver 10 presents instead of 15. These presents can be given to other players by selecting the "Gift" option during matches. Each press of the "Gift" button advances the player's gifting count by 1. At the end of matches, the gifted presents will award oranges, Christmas costumes, or event themed accessories to all players in the match. 1 Present is given to all players initially, and 5 additional presents can be earned after completing event only challenges, indicated by the icon.
Completing the first part of the event will unlock the Icy Hideout board and Waruda Christmas Party episode in the Campaign. This second part of the event will enable the player to unlock the reindeer outfit and other campaign-related rewards, and to unlock bonus items through Presents.
Event Rewards[edit | edit source]
After achieving the event goal, the campaign episode Waruda Christmas Party will be unlocked, found in the "Extra" section in singleplayer mode. Beating this campaign episode is the final step necessary to complete the event.

In this event, random drops are obtained from any presents you received during the match, as opposed to having a random chance to get a drop after a match. The number of presents you received will determine the number of random drops you get (one drop per present).
After completing the event goal, bonus items can be received at random after finishing a game during the event. This event features the below bonus items (shown as x/9 in the event pop-up after unlocking the Christmas 2017 Event ending cutscene).
Bonus items will only drop from presents after the player has already completed the event goal and unlocked the Christmas 2017 Event ending cutscene.

|10 Oranges||N/A||Found inside Presents after matches if all other present items have been unlocked.|
Christmas Wreaths, a currency that replaced Candy Canes following this event's 2018 rerun, are earned at the end of online games during this event. The amount of wreaths earned is randomly chosen from 37, 38, 40 or 45 regardless of the player's performance.
Due to the availability of the Christmas Wreaths currency in this event, all items in the Shop which require this currency can once again be purchased.
