So we can only see one week at at time.  Can you consider adding a month view as well?

Would it be possible to add a monthly view as well, just like in the old one?

Don't get me wrong, it looks really neat, but I think it was far easier to see how long an event lasted.

yes i like the new calendar but.....

 

it doesn't tell us anything! we all know that weekly and weekend missions will occur and when they start/finish. surely the point of the event calendar is to tell us what is going on! i.e.weekend mission on 15/16 March will be..........

 

also as Woel suggested i woul dlike the whole month on a page please

Presumably when published the events will click through to the article.  Would it be possibel to show on the calendar what events have been published or not?

Just absolutely horrible page. Old one was much better.

 

This might be good... if you are using mobile phone from last decade..

This just aint an update... the overview is simply gone... and why no direct link to the belonging article?

I agree with the ones saying it doesn't explain a lot... It should give more info on the weekly missions (expecially because you are removing the articles on the main page, as stated in the news) and on the specials. It should also provide a direct link to the main article in the main page, as for example now I know there is a top of the tree special, but it does NOT say which one!

This just feels incomplete: add the monthly view option, the links to the main articles and maybe even the "special offers" section, the ones in the gift shop, to be clear.

Quite an improvement, though still a bit unpolished. As mentioned, the monthly view would be a bit better (especially since it seems that the events are planned for a week) and some indicator of which event is live and can be clicked through or maybe even which ones are past due.

 

Like that it indicates current date, though, and that it's probably automated, so it'll mean less hassle for web content people.

Features that are missing from this "thing":

  1. Month view (as default view)
  2. Information about the special (not in general as it is now, but about that particular event/special/offer, or link to it at least)

 

Design: OK

Implementation: Poor.

Yeah, there is no monthly overview and it doesn't tell me anything about the events themselves. In this state it's not terribly informative.

Very pretty,  and offers a bit of hope WG that you recognised that the calendar was becoming irrelevant with it's lack of links and timely info. However;

 

  • Will it show a rolling calender month, updated ever week?  If not, it's not worth anything as the month draws to a close. And for real improvement, why not make it more than 4 weeks - I'm sure you can if you try!
  • Links to each article - while the synopsis is nice, going to the article is an absolute must!
  • Is it going to get better information than before? As pointed out, the Top of the Tree after the 16th should be shown, it must have been picked by you, so why doesn't it appear?

 

If this is just trial of the new design, fair enough. But if it's just a more confusing way of getting at the same poorly presented, glib commentary on articles that you need to find elsewhere anyway, can I have my money back for this month please? :glasses:

Check the third line. EDIT: Well, I guess it was not there and it was fixed ...

 

Btw could you make the event names working as links ? And add a possibility to view whole month, but a lot of players mentioned this before, so ...

Wow same as before, but can only see 1 week at a time. Is this an improvement or a step back? Also with the old calendar there was sometimes some info at the bottom to give a clue what the upcoming missions were. Overall a fail IMO.

Try to move your mouse over the event name.
