Sorry if this has been said already or I'm just missing the line that says it, but is that all the familiar competitions/tournaments for January or will more be added ? Thanks :)

Huh? The surprise competition is sometime tomorrow.

I was talking about the tournaments we're missing from this month.

Not true, Ive been told by multiple sources that there were at least 2 other color fam tourneys that were not scheduled. And possibly another comp (only one source told me about this). If they were intended or someone just forgot to change the settings I do not know.

Maybe they are just basing themselves on the fact people that plays the game should have better odds on winning fams.

I know several peeps complaining here are only logging on to do those competitions and nothing else.

Being hidden ones means you actually have to play the game to not miss them and thats what GH wants more than likely!

I like this idea, and I agree that some people abuse the time slot. But I don't think it's fair to say everyone that logs on specifically when a tournament is at, and who often don't have time otherwise, are "not playing".

On the other hand, as one of these people, I don't have time to stalk the board. So I feel like if these were unscheduled, I'd just forget they existed and it'd give me less reason to plan time to log on than before.

I'm the same way, with work and school I don't have the ability to stay online for multiple hours at a time hoping a tournament shows up (and a puzzle I can manage). With tournaments, there is only 1 coloured per puzzle month. I might go 5 months without seeing one if they arent scheduled, just from bad luck. I really enjoy the tournaments and competitions even if I'm not able to win a lot of them, honestly its a huge reason I log on nowadays.

Also Scheduled Tournaments = more skilled players show up, more challenging. That was half the fun!

They can change or remove comps however they want. It'd just be nice for someone to actually tell us whats going on for a change.

Also, if the competitions are going to be unscheduled, I feel we should definitely be seeing a post letting us know what happened, when, and who won.. It would be nice.

Looks like Tzz was right! Same in February.

I always looked forward to checking the monthly comp and tournament schedules to see what times they were on and which ones I could make.

Seeing as I live in Australia and my usual playing time is during my evening, I have to say I have never seen an unscheduled comp during that time. Even the scheduled ones usually end up being at odd hours for me. So I am disappointed with only one per month, as this was a main feature of the game for me.

It was in the land puzzle competition last month so I don't think it'll be included in this month's competition.

I like having a thread, as I don't check the events tab as regularly as I check the forums.

Thanks, Keaze, for getting an answer and posting so everyone can know.

I'm disappointed by the reduction in tournaments and competitions.

It's kind of depressing having to wait a whole month between comps. Can we please have some more? They don't even have to have fam prizes....
There has even been a lack of other regular comps, remember the Mardi Gras mask comps? I didn't see them at all this year.
/e sighs

ETA:
I also sent in a petition similar to my question above and this is the response I received:
"Most Oceanmasters are not involved in events, so cannot assist regarding them. Any information regarding events will be found in the appropriate thread in the Events forum. If you need clarification of anything, you should post in that forum, so that the Oceanmasters organizing events can answer your question."

So this is my post.

Why does this say 2016?

Are there no tournaments planned for 2017?

No, there are- one comp and one tourney a month as you can see in the links on the original post.

They just haven't made a thread with the new year yet. It seems they won't, going off the answer in the petition image above.

If there are only going to be two familiar events per month, could they at least be in different timezones? The tourny and comp for May are on Mondays at 3am and 4am for me. Needless to say, I won't be entering...(/e sighs and waits for June)...
Maybe four events at 6 hourly intervals (on different days of course) would cover most timezones and give more people a chance to participate.

So first puzzle comps get cut from 8 down to 2. All variety is taken away and you just alternate the same boring ideas over and over. Then you still don't post until them 10th and the tournament is on the 11th. Nice job. I haven't played in a few months now, and i see no reason to start again.

Any idea when/if these monthly games will be extended to Obsidian? If not, will there be a new plan for diffusing coloured familiars into Dark Seas, or will they be a rarer-than-usual item?

Just to forget to remove the previous tournaments thus having them repeat on top.

Maybe for the December comp we can have an all-puzzles comp, not just on the main oceans but on Obsidian as well. Just saying.
