Penny for your thoughts results and sumbmissions

Wicked Ginelle Vaughn Massive pirate battles are confusing even when you can see the battleboard. With multiple versions of many companions, and possibly several crew colors on each team, how can spectators make sense of the chaos?. To make pvp more engaging for the audience I would add colored markers – red or blue rings on the ground under each unit – to indicate which team each Ratbeard and Bonnie Anne belong to.   Zachary Quinn I think the problems lie in that people from Wizard101 haven’t adjusted to how to PvP in this type of system yet. On the turned based system of Wizards, and where pretty much anybody can be a Life wizard with amulets, you want to focus on the big group attacks and take everybody out at once. In this kind of PvP, which I think I much prefer, there is no possible way to attack ALL of the players on the board at the same time, so you have to find what’s keeping the team up and take it out quickly, and people on your team need to realize what they have to protect. People need to remember the Pre-Mastery days when you aimed for the Life wizard first because then healing was effectively cut off. Adding onto the above, this PvP system is much more in-line with the systems of “higher level”, higher maturity-rating games. With this type of system, I think budding gamers have that middle ground under their belt once they move from KingsIsle onto bigger, more combat driven game companies. Having come from these types of games BEFORE the wonders that are Wizard101 and Pirate101, it is very refreshing to see the “traditional roles” (tank, healer, DPS, controller, etc.) a little more clearly defined in Pirate PvP, which I believe are being lost or over exaggerated in Wizard PvP.   Jasmine I just wanted to say thank you for letting us have an opportunity at these crown prizes before I begin! 🙂 Did you know that most players in Wizard101 preferred Open arena over Ranked arena? I will be talking about multiple topics on the new PvP system that is being introduced in Kingsisle’s new...
