Yeah, but what if it's just one of those monthly competition things, that awards a trophy?

Yeah, I have to say it is very exciting, but I'm so far, due to it being as fuzzy as it is, not convinced.

Upon further reading into it, maybe it is a new SMH? Doesn't SMH's have a trend to be released at this time of year?


It just seemed wierd that he would have to "try" to communicate with the locals if it was another regular ocean?

I'd guess more prolonging than fixing, although this would likely give them more time to attempt to fix it, if they chose to do so.

Well, seeing how the image was uploaded to the YPPedia, it was originally called Journal 01 05 (1).jpg, but it's called Journal 12 07.jpg so I'm assuming that the numbers are dates. Either the original date refers to something in the past or this was originally going to be announced in January.

ANYWHO, I'm guessing SMH and since 2 out of the 3 current SMHs are associated with BKs, I'm going to guess this one might have something to do with Brynhild.

I thought the style of it was more along the lines of a new voyage/adventure, I think if it was something as serious as an ocean merger the post wouldn't be some hidden message in a story but more a tell all post from Cleaver.

How different would you expect it? My initial thoughts are that you go to an island, battle or puzzle in some way, take home chests? Maybe a re-branded CI voyage?

EDIT: Yes, it implies a connection between oceans via the paths, OOO have however, to my knowledge, never mentioned an ocean merger or the idea of one. I think it is purely coincidental that the wording indicates that and the PP community has been talking about a merger for a while.

Plus, would they open islands (or...at least give the option to) on oceans and then merge them?

^ It really reads like it's setting up inter-ocean travel, to me.

Of course, the name 'Thorsson' largely points to Norse mythology 'Thor's Son.' So I'd say it's highly likely that Brynhild is involved in some capacity.

We'll see I suppose.

Because of how much the community has been talking about ocean mergers, I don't think OOO would publish something that sounds like an ocean merger if it wasn't actually.

What you said. I'm... neutral on a merger, now. I would like to see something impressive in the game, though. And there have been hints that OOO has been working on something complicated for a while, so I suspect that, if it isn't an ocean merger, then it also isn't a reskin of existing content.

At least, it's a nice hope for me.

/me snuggles close to his hope.

I'm not sure how this would work in terms of land capacity etc. but maybe two fresh islands on a merged ocean might have brought more players/excitement to it.

I don't think this is going to be an SMH somehow. It could be, but...it just doesn't seem right somehow. I hope it isn't an SMH anyway, i'd love to see an ocean merger just for the excitement of it.

Has anyone considered the possibility that it's an ocean merger and an adventure? I mean the journal reads that the journey was extremely tough to get to this new ocean. Nothing in the game is referred to as 'Ocean' except the seperate severs. So why not make the journey more fun and challenging by including a game design feature that makes your journey to the new merged ocean fun and challenging? Seems like a cool idea to me. Then again I could be way off.

The difficult journey might relate to how difficult the decision was, or how over a gradual player decline it's been tough. Don't want to read too much into it though, but then it may be a little late for that :P
