So today there were notifications every few minutes of a castle siege in Merac. Cool. Notifications of events are good. However, there was nothing on any map to indicate where exactly this was to occur, and nobody I asked could tell me anything about it. I and many others were running all around the map trying to find this event, to no avail. Perhaps these things could be marked on the maps, or something like that. Maybe add a character in each town who sells newspaper/notices for 1GP, and when we click on them, they give us all the details of such events.
When CS came out and even when you start up the game every time. There is and always was a little link for "Castle Siege" in it tells you EVERYTHING you need to know.
There is a difference between negligence to inform and lack of effort to look for said information
Everyone has a week to figure what they're doing the weekend, much like a newbie has a week maybe even more if he's not yet interested in CS to look into what it is, what one does there and what are the outcomes of the event that happens every weekend.
Hope that clears it up a bit, Next time try looking before you leap, half the info people claim that isn't there, is and always has been.
