    Too many people griping about it, I guess.
    I know I would be discouraged if i was the one making it.

    sigh
    This game is becoming less fun.

    I must be one of a very few that thinks the ditching of the calendar is a good idea.

    I have always thought it was a unfair advantage to know when a event is starting and be able to plan.

    Also it'll mean less moaning about the cc frequency :D as it wont be in black and white ( which is probably the real reason for ditching the calendar )

    Do you really think there will be less comments about the frequency of CCs aso just because there is no calender ? Anything annoying, puzzling, questionable is and always will find its way to the forum in threads. So why should this be any different?

    Guess you do not have a family or job or something that makes it important to be able to plan ahead? 

    Unfair advantage? Not as long as everbody gets i.e the calender. Everybody gets the same advantage that way. It is up to them to make sure to check the calender, if not then its their own fault because they had the advantage and didn´t use it. Nothing unfair about the calender from what I see.

    Cheers :)

    Since most of the important events start during the hours when I am sleeping, or should be sleeping,
    removing the calendar doesn't have much impact on me.   For me, the event starts when I am able to log and play.

    Yet I do believe, co-op related events, such as CC, CHWE, VF, should be given fair notice as to when they start so that leaders/deputies can set co-op boosters.

    The Cooperative Championship has a countdown timer.  Please consider adding a countdown timer to other co-op related events such as CHWE and VF.

    Thanks for your consideration.  :)
    EXCEPT, since so many events run concurrently, this means we'll have even more countdown timers on the screens -- which already is so cluttered that it makes play really difficult. 

    They could put the event countdown-timers on the worldmap screen, which I rarely visit-- only to see how much time is left on temp farms, hehehe.  

    There was no calendar before, then we had an in-game calendar which didn't last very long, then our present forum-based calendar has worked great up until now.
    I don't think I would follow FB and/or Twitter, every day, just to check when an event would start.  I like to keep things simple.

    I think the biggest issue is the FHWE.  A few days notice is very helpful for this one because it starts with oysters and they are few and far between. The countdown timer is a great fix accept for it cluttering up an already cluttered screen.  I think a building like the trade center for current gold offers and specials would clear that clutter and make room for more than one timer if needed.

    Just a little note, ( Its not because you paid, or you pay, that it gives you all rights , a little bit more comprehension and respect goes a long way )

    That is a two way street Exxy (INT1), a little bit more comnprehension and respect for the custommers would go a longer way. No happy customers, no earning, business closed. Gamers have endlessly reached out their hands seeking answers, reasons, giving suggestions in hope of establishing communication with GGS. But they haven´t seemed to be bothered devoting any time on communicating with their customers. Where is the respect in that?

    GGS has made what was a pleasurable game where the players were heard and got answers, were happy, into a game full of pressure, bugs, lag and extremely little/no communication with the customers. Where is the comprehension and respect from their side? Total no-show tbh. Which ofc, when finally understood, turns their customers away from them. They have been on a "bad for business" track way too long. Patience and excuses are all used up.

    I don´t know how things work in your country, but here in Scandinavia my business would be foreclosed rapidly if I threated my customers in that maner. Fact of life.
    Where have you shown a little bit of respect?

    You blame them for pressure , ( in the end, you can play the game at the pace YOU want , at all times )

    You blame them for bugs , ( Majority of things works perfectly fine , even if there is couple very meaningless minor bugs , that are always forwarded/adressed by moderators , as soon as they are talked about , fixes are not always imminent because its no instant button to fix them )

    You blame them for lag , I've had 0 problems of lag in quite a while , maybe some very minor delays and such when there was a lot of events, but nothing game-breaking

    You blame them for little to no communication , which is just false, Just look at all moderators trying their best to answer everything ( I see many Moderators posts on many varied topics )

    Maybe I'm biased, because i seem to like their decisions , I like diversity, i like new events, i like different setups , i like to be able to adapt to changes , i like challenging stuff , i like to think about best ways to be efficient , i like to play , and i guess their direction fits what I'm looking for

    I'm not sure how it is an unfair advantage when everyone has access to the calendar.  I think the only event that will be drastically effected is the FHWE . You really need to know when thats starting or you cannot be successful.  It will be interesting to see how it goes.

    Thats what i was thinking too @Seeker1 (US1)

    @Big Beck (US1) I agree

    I expect a new category appearing in the FHWE 125+ or something? Sometimes in the future

    So that would make a bit more winners :)

    hahaha and yet the one thing people always say on the forum is not everyone visits the forum !! :D

    A calendar for June was made with a dozen alterations and so many moaned about that ! so a calendar which is subject to change would be like June over and over again .... really !! :D

    For me personally, it makes no difference. I started the game without a calendar so it is no loss to me. I have always played the same... when an event comes I play or don't play it. If it is a coop event, I play it to help my team same as always. 

    I am sorry for those who have lost the calendar and all that it means to them. :(
