Summer for Indigo! Melt the snow!

Summer for Indigo! Melt the snow!

Summer is here. The sun is smiling down on Midnight ocean, comforting the docktarts on the bustling shores of Alpha. A warm breeze carries the scent of summer across the island, wiping away the moldy odour of winter. It is calling the swashbucklers out to sea, enticing them with the promise of vast treasures to be won from fierce barbarians or the notorious brigand kings. It blows through opened windows and conjures a smile, even upon the faces of those, whose kind is rarely seen outside, like the parlour gamers and poker addicts. Lovely lasses can be seen sunbathing on the beaches, showing off their new garments. Isn't summer the most wonderful time of year?
But not on Indigo Ocean. It may be July, but Indigo is still in the firm grip of winter. Snow is covering the islands and none of the joys of summer are known there. The pirates of Indigo don't know Poker. No Brigand Kings or Barbarians are sailing their ocean, they don't even know Rumble. Not to mention new clothing or furniture.

Or to put it more clearly: There has been no new patch on th German YPP server for over six months. This is the last update Indigo recieved. And Indigo's pirates are wondering why they are not allowed to enjoy all the exciting new features of YPP, their American mates are rejoicing in.

So now, after waiting for so long, Indigo's pirates have eventually decided to raise their voice and try to bring more attention to their concerns. Tomorrow, on Sunday, July 16th at 10am PDT (gametime), they will be gathering on Midnight Ocean at the docks of Alpha Island.
Anyone willing to support them would be more than welcome. Please show up and show your solidarity and don't forget to bring a white bandana! (Yep, that's snow on our heads....)

What?: Demo: Summer for Indigo! Melt the snow! Support your fellow pirates of Indigo Ocean.
When?: July 16th, 10am
Where?: docks of Alpha Island

Most likely there will be a tourney and an event brig pillage afterwards, so don't miss it!

Re: Summer for Indigo! Melt the snow!

Someone posted about this a while ago (Faulkston - Linky plz!!) The problem is, that OOO have sent the updates, but Gamigo can choose to not put them in the game - the contract does not force any updates, also the Gamigo server is nothing to do with OOO, and so yer demo - Whist it may be fun - will not actually help the problem at all as it is Gamigo who own and run the server, then even have their own devs and OMs, so try e-mailing them and complaining, or run a demo on their docks instead.

Re: Summer for Indigo! Melt the snow!

Yep, there already are several posts about this problem, like this or this thread. I think there's also an even older one I can't find right now.

This has been discussed both on the German and American forums without a satisfying result. Indigo's players are of course aware, that Gamigo and not OOO runs the German server (while Gamigo has no own "Devs" and still gets the updates from OOO) and they have already contacted their support and talked to the Gamigo staff.
There still is no real official statement about what the problem is. There are rumours pointing into both directions. Some people saying that Gamigo doesn't have the patch, others saying that Gamigo has the patch but isn't updating Indigo. Or maybe it's just a breakdown in communication? Who knows.
But this isn't the place for speculations anyway, as they are very likely to lead to wrong accusations and unnecessary tensions. ;)

The players of Indigo don't know any definite details about why or where the updates are stuck. And in the end it doesn't really matter. The patches aren't there. That's the problem. And Indigo's players want to do something about it.
They're not trying to make accusations or point fingers. That's absolutely not the point of the demo. They're simply trying to bring more attention to their situation and look for support.
They're holding this gathering in the hope that their concerns will reach the ears of people (whoever they may be) in a position to finally solve whatever is preventing Indigo from being updated.
And maybe have some fun and meet new pirates on top of that. ;)

Re: Summer for Indigo! Melt the snow!

Constructive suggestion:

Since so many of you have created OOO accounts, use the occasional free puzzle day to try out new features such as poker and rumbling.

You will still have your own island politics on Indigo; just pick an ocean and use it as a testing ocean.
