      latest ki contest

      I'm surprised nobody talked about the "create a spell" contest, that is running ATM on the official channels.

      Bringing up the subject because it's a bit worrying to me, wondering what we'll have to pay (in all senses) for these eventual new spells...

      I don't ever go to the W101 website and don't know many of the entrees or many people who are participating in it.

      A little conspiracy theory I have about this contest is that it's an easy way for Kingsisle to steal ideas from it's players (that likely understand the battlefield several times better than the actual developers of Ki) and use those ideas for future spells we learn in game in later worlds, instead of coming up with their own ideas for spells since they don't know if their own ideas will make/break W101. Maybe it's just inspiration, or maybe it's entirely laziness of creating original spells, I'm not too sure of Ki's intent in this contest.

      I'm sure we can talk about the winners/winning-ideas more in depth once the contest concludes!

      Re: latest ki contest

      ...you are wondering what you will have to pay for these new spells - it will be a whole lot of time and money. KI is asking us to de$ign their new spells which is very nice of them. In the end, these new spells will also become Spellements - can't wait!

      I don't think I'll ever like the idea of spellements until Kingsisle makes it reasonably possible to get the spellements that already exist and right now, they have not done so. There's so many spellements that are blocked by either price tag (in which any number of spellements are not even guaranteed) or under a very insignificant drop rate. In either scenarios, it is very difficult to fully enhance a spell up to the greatest potential and it might even be quite challenging to even enhance a spell once.

      The latest release with King Borr and this boss' dropped spellements, this sets an example that Kingsisle has no intention whatsoever of making the enhancement of spells through spellements reasonable, given the absolutely pathetic drop rate (for a single spellement) and the fact that it still takes several hundreds of spellements to fully enhance a spell.

      The solution of spellements is very simple because they've already done part of it through Karamelle, simply by implementing spellements into every single boss fight and a significant amount of quest completion rewards. Nobody is complaining about the their current Karamelle Spell. But at the same time, Ki isn't going to make a hundred quests every release of a new spell with spellements so they have to make a reasonable alternative (simply increasing the drop rate of a spellement). This have not done...

      Adding more spellements will simply flood the problem that already exists and make the solution less likely since it's more work.

      This contest is purely for fun for the community, it is not intended to be a contest with in-game inclusion for the winning entries.

      I see this as a positive, and a way to engage the players. Any negativity is misplaced.

      As @Sparck suggests, this is pure fun.

      And, if it inspires innovation for the developers, then the community has done their part.

      And yes, I entered, and my daughter has her entry almost ready!

      Fun? Fun... FUN!!!!

      That's not inaccurate. They basically lifted the whole Cabal bit from this old third arc theory (not that I really mind, though).
