      Socialization101 Dev Diary with Prof. Falmea

      From the Wizard101 website: https://www.wizard101.com/forum/head...66b1098?page=1

      Socialization 101 Dev Diary with Professor Falmea

      Professor Falmea just released a new Producer's... wait, it's a Dev Diary!

      Check out what she has to say about recent socialization features, how we go about developing them, and what's coming next.

      "My Dear Wizards,

      I’m sure you’ve heard us toss around the term “Socialization” here and there lately, and I wanted to chat about it in more detail with the community. Our mission statement is simple: we want to do everything to facilitate friendships in the Spiral. In this dev diary, I'll give an introduction on how we’re taking on this huge multi-update initiative, why it’s important, and what kind of changes to expect in the future – both in the short term and the long term.

      What is Socialization? ... "

      Re: Socialization101 Dev Diary with Prof. Falmea

      This was an interesting read. I like many of the ideas, but her description of Beastmoon rings hollow to my ears.

      Both versions of the Beastmoon event are awesomely social – working together as a team to either take on another team of Wizards or waves of monsters is a fun and strategic way to engage in cooperative play.

      Beastmoon is highly disorganized, competitive and elitist (to some extent) -- I have never really been made to feel welcome as a "noob" in this setting. Those who enjoy it and are experienced with their forms and level/tiers have a HUGE advantage and most of them are too busy while in the event itself with their own strategies to take time to educate those who only join occasionally and must ask questions about where and how to help.

      Be that as it may, the actual social updates like Team Up Volunteers and such are great. I hope those ideas keep moving in the right direction.

      Disagree about beastmoon it is hard if you are with random people but with friends its so much fun. Wraith realm is the beastmoon realm to find groups and make new friends. If you are new to beastmoon, mayhem is the hardest as we have the timer and we are rushing. I hope you give it another go

      Thank you for the encouragement, but I've "given it another go" several times over the past year and always encounter the same attitudes. I've had matches that weren't terrible, but on the whole, I think I am just not willing to make mastering this event a priority in my gameplay.
