Colored Familiar Events 2011

We noticed that with the new colors added to the game, we could give out a different color of familiar every two weeks and not repeat ourselves right through the year! So that's what we plan on doing.

In each two weeks, there will be at least one colored familiar given out - most of these are likely to be tournaments or puzzle competitions. There will be other events included as well. Monkeys will only be used where it's an available color. For parrots, we will match either one or both of the parrot colors to the week's color.

We will use this thread to announce the colored familiar events as we go through the weeks, so you know where to look for the next colored familiar event. We hope to cover a good mixture of tournament and competition puzzles. Additional tournaments and competitions for tan familiar prizes will continue. This set-up doesn't preclude other colored familiars being awarded for forum or in-game events or auctions.

And, of course, if the process or the thread doesn't seem to be working, we'll make any required changes.

The first few colors are:
Jan 1-14: Maroon
8th January - Drinking tournament
Jan 15-28: Yellow
16th January - Rumble tournament
22nd January - Multi-Puzzle Competition

Re: Colored Familiar Events 2011

Yes, for these, all dates and times will be announced.

For colored familiars, yes, this replaces the monthly puzzle competition for now (we'll keep that under review), but there could still be additional contests posted there.

I got all excited about a familiar Alchemistry in December (and in a European evening as well) but it was switched to navigation because many pirates were suffering from a bug for which the fix was then on ice.

Apollo then promised we would have one in January but dates seem to be running out. It still planned to have a Alch comp this month?

Re: Colored Familiar Events 2011

I think that an Alchemistry puzzle would be perfect for the Gold week, since that is what the practice of Alchemy focuses on, after all.

Also, if they included a sixth puzzle they'd need a new alliteration for 'Sextathlon'. D:

Edit: My bad. I figured since a piracy competition was announced the poster was referring to it and not some upcoming unannounced event.

Why switch from Greek root to Latin? The logical name if they included a sixth event would be Hextathlon.

The times are events are moved around so everyone can take part in some. The Drinking tournament was at 6:30pm your time and the Pillaging Pentathlon will be at 8:30pm, both Europe friendly but very unfriendly to players in Australia.
