      Would you ever consider boycotting membership/crown-purchases?

      Not saying this is what needs to be done or if it would ever work or even if this would do more good than harm (much of Ki's game design is solely reliant on pay), just wondering what people's thoughts on this are as a movement to get Ki to listen to their community player base. Would you ever consider ever temporarily boycotting crown purchases or membership (stop giving Ki money until adequate changes are made)?

      Sure, think you can get people to not log in for a day? Would have to go to social media to work

      Pirate101 players "protested" the lack of updates in many ways over the years, many by withdrawing their memberships and no longer purchasing Crowns, and stating so publicly in the game's main site forums. Apparently, there were enough of us along the way who kept that game on life support, apparently it didn't cost that much to run those servers.

      I've seen players here on Central who indicated their displeasure over the years and they have personally stopped paying for the game and fallen away. Even after complaints and problems, the bottom line is there are far more players to whom the game remains overall fun and affordable. The player base for Wizard101 is so spread out that I don't think you could really ever bring enough organization to your efforts for a mass boycott, even on social media. But then, just because it hasn't happened before doesn't mean it can't ever happen.

      I already hardly spend anything on Crowns anyway. Don't need them when I'm playing casually!
      I am fond of Piggles. Heck Hounds look up to us. Fire Cats look down at us. Piggles? They treat us as equals.

      I don't think there's any point. Ultimately the community on Central, Twitter and even chatting platforms are but a small portion of the playerbase, as @Willowdreamer said we've already seen a similar phenomenon on Pirate101 brought about not only by coordinated proposals but also the game itself dying down - and it never seemed to matter.

      Even if we had the numbers to incur a meaningful boycott, we might not be able to convince or coordinate enough people into it - not everyone thinks the game deserves to be boycotted, or are willing to be cut off from their entertainment for months just to send a message.

      Moreover, what message would we be sending exactly? It's not like we're all have the same opinions, just imagine the manifesto we would produce by putting everyone's complains of the game into a single document... picture a serious, rational person analyzing it.



      We're just a vocal minority with strong opinions - oftentimes too strong - and ironically that already gives us a lot of power since it's our feedback that'll dominate the discussions between the community and company.

      And quite personally I believe such a move would be both silly and redundant, KI's responsiveness and transparency has only increased over the years, this is a fact. I do have concerns about the game's direction but I still enjoy playing it, I still feel heard far more than I did in 2010 or 2014.

      In truth the concept of boycotting a game is just a fancy alternative to "quitting" where you couple it with a little ultimatum, the people who got to such a point would do well to take a break.

      Re: Would you ever consider boycotting membership/crown-purchases?

      I do not think a boycott would make a difference at all. I put alot of money in this game already over the years of my membership, and they care less about me... I have decided to buy no more crowns and let my 4 accounts lapse. There are so many things that I find that annoy me now. There is no one in the team up hardly and if they are, they are some of the rudest people I ever met. This is not KI's fault but they have made it so hard to solo that I have been stuck at a certain quest for weeks! We no longer have the groups of folk to help us. I truly miss Christo and the help me gave. Such good memories and the money spent are the only reason that I am still here. I will hang on until my memberships expire. I would like to see some changes that actually interest me. Not wanting just what I like, do not get me wrong! I know many PVP, but I feel like the recent changes or couple of updates have really left me out of in the cold.
      Sorry this has become so long, but I really needed to rant. Thank you for listening and thanks for the great memories of what this community used to be! Wish for the old days, but sometimes wishing is not enough. Those in this community are the best!!

      Like others have said, I really don't think it would make a difference. KI has so many people playing the games that in order to get their attention we would need enough people to equal at least half the USA population to get on board.

      Sometimes, it just feels like...
