      This exactly. I signed up but as soon as I saw that at the bottom of the e-mail, I said that's not for lone wolf types and I will not even be using my beta trial.

      I will wait and see but it does look like it's largely PvP teams which means it's totally not for me.

      Game is in critical danger.

      That's a shame. A lot of older players with disposable cash were brought up on single person shooters. And favor the solo route.

      looks like I am out. while I do play with other people in the game. I mostly do soloing as a lot of people in the game. also if it is totally PvP again he will not gain the main bulk of W101 players. as most of the people who play in the game that I have seen do not PvP or rarely do it. I have seen about 20-30% of the player that have some PvP rank title. and from what I gathered from other people I am friends with. they ragedquit a lot of MMOs which were PvP only. think of the current PvP arena without mods or report functions.that feature will either attract or the opposite effect for the W101 crowd.
      I wasn't around the early days. I heard about the towers, but hadn't heard about the Malistaire puzzle. It seems to me they lost that thought of enabling solo players awhile back. About the crown players. It surprised me when the KI talked about microtransactions since the whole company was and is built on them. To me as long as you can keep a cash flow going by area being sold, gear, packs, energy, etc. Passing up a coin on the floor since you are looking only for a certain coin doesn't make sense.

      Back to topic. If this is going to be focused on team only. Instead of the IDK I'll be going with the I'll pass on it.

      Find me! Woo hoo! There are a bunch of us already rocking the forums.

      I'm personally glad that Crowfall is geared toward teams. I've been off-put with the demands for more easy solo content in the Spiral for a long while now. I want a nice challenge that won't get nerfed after the first time I run it, lolz.

      I heard about the towers, but hadn't heard about the Malistaire puzzle.
      one of the problems people were screaming about was to do something like that you needed four players. because when the game first came out they were listening to the players. seraph spell was originally an AoE and not a single one. again that was changed as the player base wanted it that way. as a lot of the player feedback was actually an outlier

      It seems to me they lost that thought of enabling solo players awhile back.
      they just went back to their old ways slightly. unless the dungeon holds big prizes or end game for the latest world it is near impossible to get four people to help you out. you can get one or two people. and most players in W101 are selfish. because of the selfishness in the game and the difficulty in getting four people to help out. they will nerf worlds when newer ones come out. a good example for me was one boss in Ravenscar . this boss would have three minions with him regardless of how players entered. that was changed later on when WT

      About the crown players. It surprised me when the KI talked about microtransactions since the whole company was and is built on them. To me as long as you can keep a cash flow going by area being sold, gear, packs, energy, etc. Passing up a coin on the floor since you are looking only for a certain coin doesn't make sense.
      when you hear all the people on here that say they are crowns player you would think most of the players are crowns players. but the main bulk are members only. they may have bought only certain zones. TBH most of the players I have seen are members mostly. they make their money on the laziness and to a lesser extent stupidity on some of the player base. if most of the player base were crowns players then they would offer more options.

      Back to topic. If this is going to be focused on team only. Instead of the IDK I'll be going with the I'll pass on it.
      I would probably try another team based MMO but I would definitely not try it with the W101 group coming in. also I heard of the clashing of Shadowbane and W101 players. so that might drive people out before it starts.P101 drew most of it's player base from W101 so there wasn't too much of a clash in game mentality. it is definitely going to cater to either Shadowbane or W101. too many red flags.

      From what I've seen people most who solo aren't asking for easy content. Look back at the posts here. (See here http://www.wizard101central.com/foru...-group-options ) A very small amount of people asked for something easy. Just a option at the dungeons to solo play. If the new game has dungeons and incorporated something like that it would widen the player base.

      Nah, I'm not going to argue with you. My opinion stands. I've had a long, long time to develop it.

      On to Crowfall: The forums are hilarious. Watching Shadowbane players try to wend their way into the ranks of wizards well before we even play is delightful. We already have two established guilds for wizards, and beta play is a while off. Heh, I swear we need to start a Carebears guild.

      Re: Will CrowFall Bring Down Wizard101

      No, I don't think there's even a chance of it bringing down Wizard101. A good amount of the W101 fan base won't even turn their heads towards the game because it won't be for the age range, or it'll be way too difficult for them. I'm gonna play W101 and Crowfall in beta, but I'm not really excited. There's nothing really to be excited for.. We know almost nothing at this point except that it should be "different". And as far as I know 12 schools were never confirmed that was just some art with flags, but it doesn't confirm that there will be 12 schools. Those flags can mean anything at this point.
