For example taking a wizard to level 100 takes at least 2 weeks, for most it will take much longer though. Getting a perfect pet can range anywhere from a couple days to again months (depending on potion use and luck). Getting the perfect gear is all about luck and grind so again anywhere from a couple days to month. I think a sPvP system would bring back a lot of old players, and give new players an actual chance.
      I would try it then, I admit. I started playing two years ago and looked at the mess and all the posts about PvP and said no way and haven't even set foot in the arena. My grandmother does 1v1 semi-regularly but she cares not one wit if she loses. Plus, I give her all my Storm tc's and she has a lil mermaid pet that gives her sirens and Loremaster dropped her Winter Moon so she does win now and then (has won about a third of her matches, I think she said). Frankly, without even asking her, she'd gladly forfeit the pet being equipped and the Loremaster spell and the tc's to have it more equal. She's mentioned all of this even though she likes PvP. She told me she lost most that she lost to people spamming wild bolt. Has resorted to packing the wild bolt tc's herself. It seems to be a matter of who gets the lucky hit in first. (And, yeah, she's trying to convince me to 2v2 with her.)

      Game is in critical danger.

      I agree with the many people who have pointed out that no game can ever satisfy everyone. Give KI credit for at least trying (bugs and all) to provide a wide variety of activities.

      It's only fair to point out that we see this every year as the impatient players don't want to give KI proper time to create the new worlds, so KI rushes them into production creating and missing the bugs.

      Its a matter of just allowing them the time to properly set up the new
      worlds/updates without harassing them all the time.

      Sadly, for every complaint or rant we read, there are hundreds of good things not written. That's the way it is in life, people usually only speak up when they have a complaint.

      Re: People Quitting.

      From a quitter's perspective:

      I 'quit' several months ago. This was not an intentional decision, but I became less and less enthused about logging on for three reasons:

      1 - Grinding through Darkmoor - I just don't have the time to spend 4 hours in a dungeon. My focus is on work, fitness, and life in general.
      2 - Lack of ability to play with just my 2 accounts. I have a lot of friends, but only really like playing with one specific person. The difficulty level had gotten to the point where it wasn't fun anymore.
      3 - As soon as I logged in, I was slammed with requests for help. Due to the increased difficulty mentioned in #2, all kinds of people were having trouble and were asking for help. I couldn't even ignore Darkmoor and concentrate on my lower level wizards because of the requests. And I shouldn't have to go anonymous or delete friends either (I dualbox so I need to be able to port back and forth).

      I've been considering giving it another shot, but I definitely won't sub for more than a month at a time, and won't be buying crowns either. I'll check the forums here to see what has changed since I have been gone, and if it seems workable I'll try again.

      People get burnt out, need a break. It'll pick back up when Arc 3 comes around though.

      Re: People Quitting.

      For those saying that this is a natural cycle for the game:

      If you can name one other period in Wizard101 where 3v3 and 4v4 were dead on a daily basis,
      then you are correct.

      Optimism is fine, but under reality, the neglect of both players and KI doesn't lead to a happy ending.

      PvE is another topic, but I don't recall seeing someone post a thread on how much they enjoy the many challenges that darkmoor farming and jewel crafting has to offer.

      What's the point of a game where no one is having fun?

      Re: People Quitting.

      Well, as someone who has quit, I'll say I don't really have a lot to fault the game with other than it's just become too time consuming for me. I had a blast on W101 with my kids, then without my kids.

      The problem is the opportunity cost of spending time online vs. real life. It's just too high and it increases with level. You can finish Wizard City 10 times in the average amount of time it takes to get one Morganthe amulet to drop (and of course it won't be the right school). Of course with the drop rates as they are, the possibility of being a "tail event" and not getting anything at all is high.

      And the idea of running around trying to assemble gear with motes, rare drops, crafting requiring rare fish, farming, etc., not to mention the pet fails, jewel fails, etc. -- I can see that this time sink isn't one I personally want to do anymore.

      Re: People Quitting.

      Kind of a add on to what I had said earlier. Since the way things are going with more and more cheating dungeons where the solo player is getting dropped out. If you look at the list posted here last week. Even the main line quests are going that route. Even though you can make it through some with out much of a problem. Some can get pretty time consuming or you may have to start over from scratch if you die in it. That makes the solo play pretty much like beating your head against a wall. It's just I like to solo. Until they have a option at the sigils for solo play my progress in them game will be pretty much not worth it to me.


      Kind of off topic. But still on people leaving the game. One of the things that surprised me was over at the KI forum. I have seen a fair amount of post responses for different topics people had problems with and one of them was "Just leave the game" Kind of surprised KI with filtering posts would allow posts telling people to go.

      Here's to a minuscule amount of *false* hope that KI reads this thread because there's some really meaningful feedback on here.

      Actually, I know for a fact they have read this post. So let's see what happens.
