    Today I learned a new word. I had to go and google that!

    Looks like a lot of fun, can't wait to see who'll get the Staff this time. Sad that my time zone means I can't participate in most of these things, but also eager to see what the other mentioned 'surprises' are (bazaar? multiclass? free credit giveaways? HOUSING EXPANSIONS? /wilddreams)

    Will there still be a CTF This summer? Hope so!

    Super! @Tecton Thanks for all your hard work, and Sarapis too! This should be a fun year

    I believe you get to visit a room in the game, and there will be multiple artefacts on the ground. You get to keep whichever one you pick up.

    @Tecton, I'm sure it goes without saying that there will be an auction, but could we get an idea of when it will start?

    Will the quiz be general knowledge or based on a specific history, culture, series of game events, etc.?

    What is up with the opening ceremony start time? Isn't that like Midnight-4am in the states? I guess we just have to sleep through the treasure hunt. :(

    As always, the treasure hunt will be on when the new year rolls over - this year, it'll be about 0700 GMT on a Sunday. Gotta let the rest of the world have a chance too, man.

    Similarly, any restrictions for the ship race event?

    Oh my bejesus, I -just- realized.

    With Maya, Sarapis and the Pantheon gone, who will hand the staff down now? Or even how?! Should be exciting to see!

    @asmodron well @Tecton visited me last night and it was in His hands so I'd presume probably Him

    It'll be the ghost of Nicator, now freed from his prison now that the Overlords are gone. As long as the staff remains in mortal hands he'll slowly gather the life energy needed to revive and when he does revive so shall Glorious Seleucar, which shall overrun Sapience and the Empire shall be reborn!
    I like it!

    Couple questions:

    1. Why wasn't the CTF announced?

    2. Why was it on a Friday?

    WTFing that for the sheer idiocy of the statement. It was announced at least twice that I can remember, likely more.

  • CooperCooper Member Posts: 5,297 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    It was announced on the forums, on the year 650 website, in shouts and in an announce post. Are you that daft?

    Friday, March 28

    TBD

    • Winner's Ceremony

    23:00 GMT

    Could've done with knowing an end time though. The last one was like, so many hours that I expected a chance to relax for an hour or so after getting home, and then apparently it's over. x:

    Regular CTF's are always 2 hours. Idk how long the Game of Eyes or w/e its called is, never played during one.

    Really? I swear the 600 one was at least 4-6 hours long. Maybe it just felt that long?

    Always two hours! They usually pass in the blink of an eye, at least on our end!

    Aww, you guys are always so sweet in replying to my plainly stated questions. Good to see the accompanying squinty faces on my post too.

    Someone please link the Announce post that said the time? I'm pretty sure I was reading news every time I logged on.
