|We have noticed that the novelty of the fixed events has worn off. Both for us and the players. We do not want to totally put a halt to events like this, but we'll move away from the fixed dates/celebrations. We find custom Syrnia based events more appealing since they can be prepared well. There will probably still be some contests/invasions/chests and so on on the regular celebrations. However, we got no plans to open up party island or have similar festivities for tomorrows Syrnia birthday.|
The next 'real' event we hold should be fun and new for everyone, but not a 'obligational' event. These events should be as exciting as the first events were and how they were meant to be. So; new players will still be able to see Party island in the future. And I'm sure we can still find use for the drinking skill in the future ;). At the moment no plans have yet been made for an event or for opening the party island.
We are currently concentrating on updating the game where it lacks content e.g. a high level island. The focus groups (As announced in Forum->Announcements->Opportunities) can help shape this plan.
P.S.: Today an USA based ISP fixed some problems on their side which disabled their customers to visit our website. This should fix some of the reported connection problems (See page 2 of Feedback->Having problems with Syrnia? Questionnaire to answer).
