Nope... no announcement for the next test...
If you can't beat'em, join'em; (and wait for a better opportunity to strike).

​NO!  No announcements, we're in limbo. They will let us know when the next test will happen. Probably a day or two before it starts.

Apollo,

Reading through the text of their comment it does state that a test weekend has been announced for January. I think they may have spilled the beans. :)

 

It was expected anyways, I think, that the tests would return soon.

I expected it before now, truth be told. But it's not like that announcement he's citing had a date on it, but just "in January"; which I would have loosely considered "a given".

But considering what's been said about the Russian holiday season and all, the  fact we haven't had test #3 already makes sense.

Lack of information on the NA server is pretty frustrating...

Hey Ardez, aren´´t you checking on the EU forums too?

Are they just as silent over there or is it just here?

Impossibly more silent. Imagine this site with more traffic, but it was only people without access to the closed section of the forums.

 

Basically everybody with access ignores the public section and I can't get access without getting a 2nd code for that account. They have tons of users and tons of uptime but nothing useful for us(Relatively speaking).

​Well when the beta test went offline in March, everyone assumed it'd be back up in two or three months; of course it wasn't. So my advice would be, don't expect anything, just keep checking and be pleasantly surprised when announcements are made. Either that, or prepare to be frustrated a lot.

I take this picture as a secret hint that there will be coming druids as unit types for the barbarians. maybe as some kind of moral support we haven´´t seen so far.

 

Otherwise the sickle wouldn´´t make sense :p

 

It would certainly be a nice idea imo.

It is a hand sickle that is used to cut things like wheat for a harvest. I suppose that the person in the background is a monk. As far as the etches I think 27.1.2017!

"This ‘forgotten’ number-notation was developed in the late 13th century by Cistercian monks in what is now the border region between France and Belgium." (Source: http://www.davidaking.org/Ciphers.htm)

Seconded, it's January 27th, 2017.  That's the day before I go on my honeymoon with the wife.  First my wedding, now my honeymoon.  Danggit, CA, you're actively out to get me, haha....

​Just be strong Anax, put her to bed, then stay up all night playing; then wake her with a kiss and coffee. Not too hard...  lol

as far as the statue, check this out, I'm convinced its this statue of Dionysus from the rear, it would go along with the sickle as well. yes,no?
