I count 11 puzzles that can have competitions, but you still make a good point. With 3 a month, I guess that would be roughly 3 colored familiars a year for each puzzle. That assumes none of these would be multi-puzzle competitions, which I am not sure is the case. I am cool either way really, but I like things to be fair and equal if possible. I want to see colored familiars be relatively rare, but at the same time I love having chances to win more of them.

The competition 'Familiar Navigation' has ended.
Nooblar won the 1st category in Navigating!
Montage won the 2nd category in Navigating!
Everclearboy won the 3rd category in Navigating!
Sleepingvamp won the 4th category in Navigating!

Pffft, I wanted an ancient bust more anyways! Seriously, congratulations to Nooblar, that was some high scores we were pulling.

If the crafters now get the EXACT date and time to aim for and such...i think its only fair the carousers get an updated fammy tourey sched. i mean...really. it's just the luck of being on or not.
That's what it's supposed to be. When we have colored familiar tournaments, we generally pre-announce time and date. The tan familiar tournaments are much more frequent, and cycle across all days and times of day, and I think it's a good thing if they're available for the people actually playing the game rather than specifically for the event-watchers.


I've to disagree with you on this one Apollo.

We used to have Kerix's schedule some time ago, and it was extremely helpful for casual players, to actually be on time, on the given date having the chance to actually compete.

Now I've been logging pretty much everyday (of course with some exceptions) for 3 months, and although I could ran into rumble/sf or td tourneys, I haven't hitted a single drinking one, which is my favourite from these particular four.

Moreover, most of the people either playing this game a lot or having quite exceptional skills are suprisingly online on every single one, because they either already figured out the pattern, or they are being informed by in-life friends about them. You can't really eliminate "event-watchers" and if someone is good in something, it's only fair to say that the best puzzler should win(apart from drinking, which is much more luck-oriented than sf or rumble or td on certain settings).

I'm not particularly sure how this whole puzzle competition thing works...

I'm staying up for the Carpentry competition even though there's no chance of me winning. :) I like Carpentry and I have nothing better to do. Besides, 6:00 in the morning (my time) is like a normal time for me to still be awake. Yay (not really) for being a useless college drop-out with no job, no money and no life.

I'll have fun competing anyway. :)

At some point after they announce it. Chill, be patient, they are only doing a few of these every month and they already said that they will get to ALL of the puzzles in time. Which means, yes, there will be a bilge competition, but no, it will not be this month. Try again in July.

Indeed, some of us have to move our schedules around a little to make these competitions, and more advance notice would be nice.

Hey guys-something to remember. OMs are people too. OOO's main office is out in California, so this has been a holiday weekend. It's just 5 days, not a week, and I'm more than sure they haven't forgotten. Chill out, posting here impatiently isn't going to make them in anymore of a hurry. Enjoy your weekend, I'm sure they'll be up tomorrow. :-)
