      Who would like to see PvP fixed?

      After reading countless threads about how ruined PvP is now a days, I decided that I should try and do something about it. Over the course of the next few days I will be finding a ton of evidence supporting how ruined PvP is and who all wants it fixed. So I need everyone's help here, please vote for what you want and leave any and all suggestions. After I have all the evidence I need I will be drafting a thread to KI and hopefully we can get something out of it.

      Re: Who would like to see PvP fixed?

      People have told KI over and over, there to busy making horrid updates that trash it even more haha.

      Puppet teaming is just redic now they need level caps to stop that trash.

      Critical pierce and damage greatly out weight resist, need higher block and resist to balance out vs it, not go to extremes on just one.

      Wizard101 centrals largest tournament champion of 256 players.
      I will always be the king.

      Re: Who would like to see PvP fixed?

      Not sure if I'm alone on this one here...I think minions should be removed from PVP. I believe it's an unfair advantage. When you play 1v1, it should be just that..1v1. Not 1v2. How has this subject never been approached before?

      Sure, most people would like to see it fixed, changed, whatever, but nobody can agree on how.

      Re: Who would like to see PvP fixed?

      Kingsisle's not going to take action. The majority of updates they've released over the years have just prioritized maximum profit, at the expense of balance in the arena. It took years to even acknowledge puppet teaming was an issue. Their change to the system to try and eliminate unfair matchups was a step in the right direction, but ultimately didn't fix the core problem. The only way to have something done, is if people start cancelling their subscriptions and stop buying crowns. If Kingsisle sees a drop off in money, they'll then realize maybe people are unhappy with the current state of the game.

      I've been involved with the Wizard101 community since 2008, and one thing I wish Kingsisle did, was strengthen the feedback connection within the community. While they do lurk on the forums occasionally, rarely do they reply, let alone acknowledge the popular opinion on the community. That's the main thing Kingsisle lacks, other gaming companies have AMA's, FAQ sessions, developers responding to the community. Not the case with Wizard101: you achieve more through contacting them via social media profiles, than the forums. That's not healthy.

      Those of us who have been involved with the dueling community in Wizard101 sadly know that we won't any priority from Kingsisle, most likely ever. It seems Kingsisle turns a blind eye towards the arena. Go ahead, we can try to inform them we are unhappy. It's up to Kingsisle to break the barrier between them and their fanbase.

      I've actually thought of the way. Make different queues inside the queue. For example, if abolished has over 100 crit they get put in a "low crit" queue, and if they have say 300+ a "high crit queue". Then the system will check for people inside of your queue. Of course that can be expanded on, but that's pretgy basic, I'm actually thinking of coding a proof of concept in Java so KI can see if it works.

      Yes, but puppet teams were eventually recognized and KI attempted a fix. If we badger this enough, with enough information I bet we can get somewhere. I'm actually thinking about starting development on my proof of concept right now. It will take awhile, but I'll post when I have it done.

      Even if a 'fixed' system brings in some new players, divisions will not help much, IMO. It already takes a while to find a match with just a few criteria. You start dividing people up into more specific categories, you may begin to have trouble finding a match.

      Perhaps seasonal types of matches; each week keeps the normal queue but has a different queue with different rules. Same rewards, just more like central tourneys with limits on resist, damage, spells, etc. And it's different every week. Popular ones are noted, and KI can look at elements of them and try to incorporate them into the main queue once they have gone through everything a few times. TBH, has the pvp system ever not been 'broken?'

      The single largest issue is number of players. As numbers go down, people can plan for a single type of opponent, thus glass cannon, dispel, jade/juju, and other single stat-driven players can thrive. When there were, to quote a member, "Nearly instant matchups with same-level, same rank opponents," it was because there were people of your level with your rank waiting to match up. Without close matchups, nasty things come out of the woodwork.

      Just some thoughts.
