Ice is almost always excluded from the events on the production oceans.

Not the events; the competitions and such. I remember last year was all about skellies and zombies, and Ice was ground zero for testing the then-brand-new zombies, and increased spawning of frays. I myself possess an "Eye of the Zombie" trophy, which proves that the competition was active last year. So why not?

Yes, I saw that I had the opportunity, but I chose not to get it on Ice. I should of though. All I got were rags on Cobalt.

Last year we were allowed to get the black colored pets. So how come this year we are not allowed?

I believe it was already statde that the new familiar well not make an apperance on the Ice Ocean. Since it is a familiar and the familiar data is preexisting and all they are doing is adding a new species there is no neccessary testing to be done.

I had petitioned an OM about this previously, and they have done all the testing for the new familiar themselves. So let's go ahead and drop that topic.

What's to test about the familiar? That it sits on your shoulder right?

I'm sure there isn't any need for testing of a new familiar since its just a new kind of image.

Basically, yes. But they would have to test it's movement, such as the parrot's wings when you walk. Regardless, it's minimal and can be done in one or two tests by a single OM without the help of players.

Or even done by a developer on their own test server that players can't access. There's little need for player testing, since the general framework is already in place due to the existing familiars (as I recall, there were some general bugs, but that was before I was playing).

Well every new thing has a few general bugs. Which actually might explain the limited few familiars on this ocean, and why no more have been given out since.
