      =================================================

      From the Wizard101 website: https://www.wizard101.com/game/updates

      Summer 2022
      Live Realms




      New Summer Content - Guilds!



      "It’s summertime once again, and that means a hot new update to Wizard101! We have your favorite feature additions, such as challenging new Skeleton Key Bosses, more Lore Spellements to charge up your spell book, new Beastforms and Rewards for Beastmoon events, and even a set of new pet powers to keep your pets in the action!

      That’s not all! We’ve introduced one super group friendly feature that we’ve been wanting to add into Wizard101 for literally years now... Guilds!.

      Highlights Include:
      *Introducing Guilds
      *New Skeleton Key Bosses and Lore Spellements
      *New Beastforms and Rewards
      *New Event Rewards
      *New Pet Will Casts
      *Bug Fixes and Other Changes



      We are excited to announce that the initial release of Guilds is being introduced in the Summer Update!

      Guilds have been a requested feature for some time now, and we’re finally making it happen. The idea is often implemented a little bit differently depending on the game. In Wizard101, Guilds will be large permanent groups where you and your friends can gather inside your very own private Guild House. Guilds will face a variety of new challenges (with sweet rewards!) that can only be overcome with the help of one's guildmates. Players will still be able to quest together outside of Guilds as usual if they so choose.

      Guilds is such a big idea for us. This feature will continue to be updated and expanded on, so what you see now is only the beginning! ..."


      See the complete Announcement here: https://www.wizard101.com/game/updates

      If this happened anywhere I worked, people would be getting fired. KI has always been sloppy, but this is at an entirely new level of incompetence..

      How in the world did they break frozen kraken, its not even part of the dang update!

      Posting major known issues and releasing anyway, get a dang QA department already.

      If you accidentally press the upgrade now button in game it'll crash the game. I had 3 accounts up and it crashed all of them. Still a shame we need 11 online friends to make a guild as only my wizards are on this morning.

      Re: "Summer 2022 Live Realm - Update Notes!"

      The 2 "new" quests still do not auto complete, have no text, have no dialogue review, and do not go away until you quit the game and come back.

      I reported this the first day of test, guess they do not see this as an issue, but it can be very confusing for anyone trying to do these
      "quests" that are not even quests.

      The problem about firing people is that whoever replaces them is going to have go through an extensive learning curve in order to settle in and that's going to take a while and during that time where members who have maybe a basic level of what they're doing (the current team members) are fired, the game is only going to worsen. It's a short term loss, long term gain (considering the people that Ki hires are better game designers, quality assurance, customer service) but I really don't know if W101 can survive that period of time. And even if Ki posts a hiring application for multiple new employee positions rather than firing the current Ki team members, there's a chance the current employees would blackmail the game because they know they're being replaced (and given today's circumstances, it's better to keep a job than find a new one). I don't know what the solution to "improve" the Ki team is, but I'm not sure firing people would be the right direction unless Ki can magically find individuals out there that both knows the game very well and also immediately recognize W101's archaic coding software...

      How is this not true of any other job? They have lots of new people, lots of new ideas, but apparently no one knows how to supervise or test their work, and no on is accountable for the mistakes.

      lets review:

      1. This update adds will casts for pvp, but broke all the will casts that existed and worked before.
      2. This update added new skeleton key bosses, per their own notes, they are not appearing as expected?
      3. This update added guilds, just waiting to see what is wrong with those, since they were never properly tested.

      Very poor work habits they are teaching these new folks imo. IF you were this bad at your job, you would be fired.

      i mean, i don't disagree, but i have a friend who works as a video game programmer (not on any games i play, i only really play wiz and pirate : ) and he moved to sweden a few years ago only to get head hunted and move to UK recently, so i think jobs in gaming are going well right now. i know that's anecdotal, but when the only people i know with programming jobs can basically write their own ticket, maybe KI has been priced out of good talent? if other places offer better salary and perks, and of course have the benefit of not being in texas...

      3. This update added guilds, just waiting to see what is wrong with those, since they were never properly tested.
      Gee, I wonder why they were never properly tested. It wouldn't happen to be because of the number requirement to start one, would it? One can have a full list of friends, but that doesn't mean those friends are active or active enough to want to join a guild (or even just want join one in the first place even if they are active enough). I don't know how active this test realm was from start to finish, but when I used to play test realm the non-fall updates were the least active unless there was something exciting (such as when they added the crown shop) being added.
