      KingsIsle Answers - June 19th 2010

      Question 1: Pet derby cheats/bugs
      There is word of pets being able to teleport straight to finish and win the race without cheering or other means, a few pets seem to be able to do this at this time.
      Is this a cheat or bug? If so is there a time frame for it to be fixed?
      Answer 1: The talent called Spiffy Pop seems to have been the culprit of some issues with Ranked Derby. Instead of just popping the pet up the track, it was popping them to the end. As of June 15th, this is no longer the case. As intended, Spiffy Pop will now teleport the pet up to the pet that is currently in front of it.
      ________________________________________
      Question 2: Missing items
      We understand that You are hard at work trying to fix this.
      Will everyone be able to get their lost items back?
      Should they report which items they lost so there is a record?
      Answer 2:
      We have identified all characters that were affected and have a reimbursed then for all lost items. We believe this will resolve all outstanding character issues, and in the case that we are not able to exactly match any data that was lost, we will err on the side of caution and offer Crowns as compensation.
      ________________________________________
      Question 3: PvP arena
      In PvP there is a -1 bug , it makes a personís rank -1 so they get matched up with lower levels and lower ranks. What is KI doing to try to
      repair this?
      Answer 3:
      Most of the time the -1 stat is only a display error. When a player looks at their or another players stats, the game sends a message to the database requesting the information. If it takes too long for the database to reply, a -1 is shown instead of the actual stat. We implemented an update on June 16th that should eliminate most of these -1 errors.
      ________________________________________
      Question 4 is for the art dept: Inquiring minds want to know
      What is Cyrus drake holding in his hand?
      (picture is one on the main site there's photos of the teachers)
      Answer 4:
      Ah yes Cyrus does like his devilish minions. Being the teacher of Myth, Cyrus is able to conjure characters of all types, including mischievous little imps. The one he has in the picture is a special pet of his, but we canít allow it to roam throughout the Spiral, itís much too destructive. Iíve included a close-up of this rare creature.

      ________________________________________
      Question 5: PvP arena
      Why was unbalanced removed when test went live? Yet none of the other ones.
      Answer 5:
      We looked at this in great detail and finally determined that Unbalance would simply cause too many drastic changes to how players approach PvP combat. Specifically, with Reshuffle cards being so commonplace in most Wizard101 duels it was determined that having the ability to consistently nullify these would make for a very different PvP experience. There are certainly counters to this strategy, but we were still concerned about the degree to which PvP would change.
      ________________________________________
      Question 6: Mods
      Will you ever have in game, moderators? If not why?
      Answer 6:
      Every single player age 13+ is a moderator. Weíve given our players the ability to report inappropriate chat or behavior, and we encourage you to act responsibly and use this tool. Each and every report is read by a real person, and acted upon accordingly. Egregious or repeated violations of the Terms of Use will result in a permanent account ban and deletion of your characters.
      False reports are also not tolerated, and can result in sanctions against the players making the false reports.
      We put the power of moderation in the hands of our players; you can make a difference in Wizard101.
      ________________________________________
      Question 7: Pets
      When getting a new level 48 pet from the level 48 spell quest, aren't they suppose the have the 5% pips from baby? Is this a bug?
      Answer 7:
      The 5% pip talent is a temporary talent given to the lvl 48 pets who existed before the Pet Pavilion was introduced. We decided to give them this flat rate improvement because using the standard pip boost would have necessitated us starting them at a very high level in order to confer the correct bonuses. This talent is being filtered out of the system and will not exist on any new pets.
      However, with this in mind, we recognize that earning your lvl 48 pet is a big accomplishment and it needs to be suitably awesome in the game. Weíre going to be making changes to the game soon that guarantees that all new level 48 pets will manifest the regular Power Pip talent at some point in their lifecycle. The regular Power Pip talent starts with a 1% bonus, but can grow to upwards of 8% as your pet levels and progresses through training games.
      As for pets that fall within those two updates, weíll work out a way to address their shortcomings before we make the update in the coming weeks.
      ________________________________________
      Question 8: Marleybone
      The counter weights seem to be only the top 4 floors now, yet you get a quest to talk to Dusha Doxen in east to defeat old smokey.
      Are we still suppose to get this quest or is the new way counter weights area bug?
      Answer 8:
      Dasha left town unexpectedly, and while her message still appears, itís only an echo that will soon fade.
      Smokey will be looking for a new place to hang out very soon, since I know heís missed by many of our adventurous Wizards.

      Question 9: Crowns Vs Sub
      As in this topic there is a question if crowned/access pass players are considered free to play players?
      Answer 9:
      This is a complicated question. Right now there are essentially two groups, Paying Players and Free to Play. The definitions are as follows:
      Paying Players currently have an active prepaid subscription for that month, or have made a minimum $10 purchase of Crowns within 30 days.
      Free to Play players are players who are currently not subscribed, and/or who have not made a purchase of Crowns in the last 30 days.
      These are the only two groups that our system contains.
      We do realize that in some cases, players have paid more over time in Crowns than a Subscriber. The price of purchasing all the areas in Wizard101 with Crowns is approximately the same amount as a one year Subscription. Items and services that can be purchased with Crowns are purely a luxury, and are either offered also for Gold or drops on creatures. The only items that are restricted to only being available for Crowns are those that shortcut the game in some way, such as Potions and Henchmen.
      Itís really up to the individual to decide how to pay based on how youíre going to play and that depends on the type of player that you are. Everyone progresses through games at their own pace. If you're only going to play a couple hours a week, or want to stop playing for extended periods, purchasing areas with Crowns is probably best for you. You'll progress at your own pace and only pay for the streets you need. Once you've purchased a street, you can access that street forever, on all the characters on that account. Players who purchase areas with Crowns, progress at their own rate, and can leave and return to the game without any change. You will still have access to areas that they have purchased with Crowns and can take your time to only pay for areas you can access.
      If you plan on playing a lot more than a couple hours a week, then a subscription may be more what you need.
      Players who purchase time with a Subscription can progress at your own pace and have access to all areas for the duration of your Subscription. Once the Subscription ends, so does your access to those areas. During your Subscribed time, you also have access to Message Boards, Advanced Chat Options and occasionally the Test Realm.
      ________________________________________
      Question 10: Friends list
      Will there ever be a bigger friends list or maybe even the ability to group your friends?
      Answer 10:
      As many of you know, Wizard101 launched with an unlimited Friends list. As the population grew, we realized that an unlimited Friends list was just too much information to load, and was causing some players to take a long time to load or transition between areas. As a result, we dialed the maximum back to 100. Based on your feedback, it looks like we might have to expand it, but we also need to consider the impact this will have on our databases and your load times.

      Although very long winded, this answer is basically a NON answer. Why are those who purchase crowns not recognized for their own merit? Why are they considered a trial player? KI admits themselves that crown players end up paying more than a sub player so why don't they get that recognition? Make three groups. Sub, Crown, and Free to play(trial). i.e.. Sub gets access to test realm, crown gets access to test realm ONLY if they purchase X amount of crowns within 30 days, etc. Free to play players get no benefits at all.

      With crowns, I would rather it be for every 5000 crowns you buy, you get one more month of being considered a subscriber. After that, you are recognized as a crown player, not free player.

      I've always wondered what cyrus had in his hands.
      Smokey is coming back!

      And they are having an update in the coming weeks. Weeks being plural.

      Hooray for Smokey's return! I wonder where he will appear.

      Hopefully they will fix the friend's list so that it CAN be grouped together. Or more importantly, the images will quit going back to stick figure drawings. When I have three Erics on my list and I don't have pictures of them it makes it difficult to tell who is who at a moments notice. I do hope they fix this or take it into consideration when they upgrade the friends list.

      Re: Week 1 Answers June 19th 2010

      @Hanamana - The reason why Crowned (all bought) Accounts that don't buy are considered F2P is because KI needs to pay their bills somehow.

      It seems that the Pip Boost ability will go poof, and replace with Pip O'Plenty which you may not get until your 48 is Epic? Neat I guess.

      As far as addressing ALL the missing stuff, they have not. My missing wizard is still missing, and they haven't responded to my emails, nor have I been reimbursed for the crowns spent on the affected wizard...

      I wonder if they'll make Smokey an optional boss in IronWorks, because there is another warehouse there (pressure plate pattern activated) that is there but has nothing inside it.

      Yes! Thank you! Please, please consider this idea with great certainty because I would love this game even more!

      On a sidenote, how do we send these questions to them? Or do they read through the forum and look for the questions?

      It seems that the Pip Boost ability will go poof, and replace with Pip O'Plenty which you may not get until your 48 is Epic? Neat I guess.

      As far as addressing ALL the missing stuff, they have not. My missing wizard is still missing, and they haven't responded to my emails, nor have I been reimbursed for the crowns spent on the affected wizard...

      I wonder if they'll make Smokey an optional boss in IronWorks, because there is another warehouse there (pressure plate pattern activated) that is there but has nothing inside it.
      It's kinda scary, they are saying it could max at 8% but it also could max at 1%! I wasn't planning on wasting the time on any of my school pets to Epic. Now I am being forced into hours and hours of something I hate? Please say it isn't so. I despise the minigames (started being slightly annoyed to miffed, to truely irritated, to OMG this is dull, to I'd rather tear my hair out and eat it.) I don't have the money to buy $5.00 treats for 6 pets.
      Question 6: Mods
      Will you ever have in game, moderators? If not why?
      Answer 6:
      Every single player age 13+ is a moderator. Weíve given our players the ability to report inappropriate chat or behavior, and we encourage you to act responsibly and use this tool. Each and every report is read by a real person, and acted upon accordingly. Egregious or repeated violations of the Terms of Use will result in a permanent account ban and deletion of your characters.
      False reports are also not tolerated, and can result in sanctions against the players making the false reports.
      We put the power of moderation in the hands of our players; you can make a difference in Wizard101.

      Let's hope this puts an end to the threads. Please use the report wisely.
