First of all sorry for writing in English. But though it seems I'm the only one who still has some contact with one of the Feerik-admins I'll send some explainations:
I asked Guillaume (he's basically working on the translations for the games and has no new account here on PV, he uses boudicca's account when releasing some stuff) to bring back the calendar although it's the same as the last 2 years. It still bears the Christmas tree ball - / Boule de Noël - game which brings lot of fun to many players and helps to gain traits without spending money at all, which is a cool gift. And though you never know which traits you'll gain when opening the won boxes, there are some surprises to be happy about.
It was also me who asked for bringing the remaining trait-sets in the shop as official sets. It would be a pity if they remain in some dark virtual boxes when BamboO made the effort creating them. They deserve to be released and so we do it. As toten said, there's still one left (an English Guard, if I may spoil you) and it will also make it into the game. We choose to have some weeks passing between each release so you all have the opportunity to collect coins in the game and buy the sets without the need of using real money.
The Feerik-company moved again, left the villa they had in Grables and now has a smaller place in some building I'm not quite aware of (I'm not sure if they've already put the new adress on their official page). The team has become quite small and they're working on getting back in the black to be able to employ more workers. As you may know, BamboO has left the company and there's no graphic artist left to make new stuff for Poneyvallée at the moment. The new owner of Feerik has taken over a company that has already been ruined years ago by the Zamora's and has to pull their chestnuts out of the fire which is a tough, nearly impossible thing to do. So they concentrate on the game that makes the most money (Eredan) and released a new one hoping to get new players to help the company to grow again. We argued a thousand times (or it least it feels just like it) that working on the other games would bring in some profit as well but as it seems the statistics aren't well for Poneyvallée since the release of V2. Getting the game back into V1 is nothing the company can do as well with having so little opportunities to act. They make sure that the game is available, they brought back the calendar, they release the remaining sets and they work on the beauty contest whenever I push Guillaume to do it. That's all they can do. And thinking about their current situation it's more than we could have hoped for.
So I ask you kindly not to be so overly frustrated but be happy that there is at least something happening. Thank you and merci beaucoup.
Have a happy Christmas season / Nous vous souhaitons un bon temps de l'Avent! :-)
