His Girlfriend Lost all that she had been working on including she had personal paid for housing that she had created herself including all of the pets that she had kept for the life of the program. She had pet that don't apply to anything that they have today......

I am sorry but this is not how you treat your customers... if you want to up date then you do this without craping on the customers that have put you in the position that you are in today... If I had to guess how many people that you have craped on it would be in the thousands....not good...do you want to stay in business or do you want to loose your customers..............That is your Choice...... 

If it seems too good to be true, it's probably an exploit. 

It's one thing to pick up a few of the same item and think "hmm something's not right".
It's another to pick up a few dozen of the same item. Now you're getting into a grey area.
It's wholly another to pick up hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of this item. Now you've slipped into the dark side and are clearly exploiting. 
It's this last group that were sanctioned based on the egregiousness of their infraction.

Some sanctions were reviewed and reduced.

but not to warn any one and only post that it was wrong on the message board an hour before you suspend/ban people from a bug that was reported months a go.  and the only thing you got from it was in game gold. it didn't hurt any one except YOUR CODE MAKERS. and you punish KIDS, Kids who thought it cool they found a bug.

Looks like this note stung a little for you to reply, since you are ignoring the many thousands of complaints you are receiving about this issue.  When you introduced gardening, players found 'a glitch' that allowed them to stack plants and KI came down heavy handed with sanctions, but have now stated that it is ok to stack!  So tell me, I can collect from multiple gardens that are stacked, plants that nobody else has access to, therefore having an unfair advantage over other players in gold, treasure cards and lots of mega snacks for pet training, but collect housing items from Azteca that are free and available to anyone who can get there, and you place heavy sanctions!  Yes you reduced the 'punishment'.  This wasn't a beta test where we are expected to report, this was mainstream.  You have a team of people paid to hunt for this, but in many months they didn't find it, (a bug created by your programming team), so we the players are to be punished?  Shouldn't you be finding more competent staff instead?

i've played wizard101 since 2010, i was the typical 80's arcade kid,  was there when things like turok and tomb raider first came on scene, I have always like questing type games. I am now well an adult and i love wizard101. Yes in the last 4 years i have taken time off between world releases, but i have yet to be disappointed. It starts out a little more gear toward younger kids but it evolves quite well and it gives you time to master your game play between new challenges. I know some people have said some bad things on here about the recent exploit, and i have to say in the beginning KI was a little harsh, but they did come back and reduce the 'punishment' as i understand it the ones who were affected did abuse the glitch in excess. Shockingly there were more adults i saw on forums affected than kids.  Yeah there are some  things that need to be adressed from time to time,  but that is always going to be the case as new worlds are released. It has been my experience for the most part KI does try to address issues in a timely manner.. yeah they dropped the ball this once, in my opinion tho the good far out weighs the bad. I gladly recommend this game to family and friends.

I have been playing Wizard 101 over 5 years and for them to ban and suspend  a huge majority of their dedicated players over a glitch in their system that had been reported to them months ago was unbelievable.  This company's policy was not to refund our monies in our accounts for remaining play time and Crown purchases that was already paid with REAL MONEY, but we were suspended / banned for picking items to be sold  in the game for "in game gold" that was available over a glitch that harmed no one, and no one was given a warning to stop,  just immediate bans and suspensions.  How convenient they waited until after the Holidays also when a lot of  Wizard 101 holiday gifts were purchased.  Shame on you Kings Isle.

Is it just me or are there a lot of posters here with a very short post history and oddly similar sounding stories?

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

well, someone posted a link to this on an 'adult' wiz101 fb group where happens to be a couple of dozen or so who jumped on that exploitation band wagon and got punished for it and now they feel like they want to punish KI instead of riding out their 2 week suspension from the game. ( keep in mind KI punished people only who excessively exploited it as in 100, 1000's of times used)  I posted because i think it was being unfairly represented here as it is a great game and in the 4 years I have played  this is the only thing like this i have seen and when KI realized they had been harsh they did reduce the punishment. That is the only reason i posted. It seems a lot in this world the unruly and angry disgruntled are the only ones heard and in turn often the ones catered too and i just don't think it's right. In the mean time these folks who are angrily bashing KI are wanting to play , js

I stay away from the adult or anything W101 on FB. as currently the game  has the potential to be a great game. now with the mass banning issue all these people were initially permabanned.  now this went into three parts. people who took one or two extra free furniture were overlooked as it was considered nothing. people who took more than a dozen or so were either overlooked or permabanned as well as people picking up 10,000's of these items. the people who picked up a dozen or so and were banned was changed to suspension while people who picked up 10,000 free mushrooms or even in the 100's were banned. for me it was unconfirmed on what caused the change.

this was the second of the great massive bannings this company has done . the other one was over a gardening glitch where stacked  elder plants could be harvested unlimited. while these players were banned. KI did fix the problem. and as of now you can stack plants in your garden without (at this point) a sanction from KI  as it is allowed to do so. however with stacked plants if you have a problem with it ,KI support will not intervene with it.

some crazy advertizment here for a pretty lame game. 

I would never recogmmend anyone to play this game, its heavy cash shop dependant and has a very young and childish community. Even if your looking for that kind of demography- there are far better alternatives. Ive also read very bad things about its management. Its one of those companies that make fake accounts and spam forums how great theyr game is.

good games dont need that.

Would you happen to have read those things on message boards like this one, from people with a very short post history who have stories weirdly similar to several other people who post with very short post histories?

You are incorrect. You do not have to have cash to play this game, other than the monthly fee. Spending real money is a choice not a requirement. You can craft better gear than you can buy in the crown shop (real money) and it's free.  As far as a childish community, again, incorrect. There are more adults that play this game than kids.  It's a family game so yes, there are going to be kids of all ages there. If they bother you, change realms or walk away like you would in real life. This is a great game, been playing for several years and I'd reccommend it to anyone.  

 

To other posters:

As far as sanctions and banning goes, you get what you deserve for being dishonest. Common sense would have saved anyone that was punished the consequences. Stop blaming the programmers and be accountable for your actions and decisions. The entire game up to Azteca had free housing items. You could only collect 1 per wizard per account. when you came across a different situation instead of cashing in on it you should have questioned it first. If someone was banned, it was because they were in the group that took the items thousands and tens of thousands of times and sold it for gold.  As far as a warning, you were given one in the User Agreement you agreed to when you signed up to play the game!

KI's management does leave a bit to be desired but they are improving, slightly, over the years.  Their support people are great to work with and very helpful.  Decision makers need to pull their head out of the clouds and be realistic though.  One example is the new PVP tournaments that are decided by an NPC. I watched a wizard win who never hit his opponent, and who had far less health than her. When I questioned KI as to how the tournaments were judged, they stated they couldn't tell us.  You have to spend real money to play it so why would people bother paying if they aren't being told how it works? this is just one example of poor decision making at KI.

Perhaps tomorrow will be better.

You can hang out in a few starter zones for free ,after that it takes real money to move on.The  FREE part  content can be done in one day,so in essence it is less free than other game's free trial periods that usually last 10-15 days.This is in essence a 1 day free trial.

 

As to the main question,this is my opinion and since i know the game inside and out i feel it is an accurate one.This game was brilliantly designed from a combat perspective up to level 50 then it goes all downhill because the design did not have the foresight to advance past 50.This game imo is great fun up to 50 or Waterworks,great for a family or friends with 4 people.The flaw is that if you have more than 4 one or two are left out in the cold watching and waiting.

A few  VERY important things to note if playing past 50.

1 Waterworks gear is the best gear,you will find yourself wearing it well into the 80's.KI got real lazy and/or cheap on the gear creation post Waterworks gear.The debate over the new system of Criticals and Blocking can be argued forever,i feel it was a weak option to fix a design made only to last until level 50.They should have kept up a good gear progression,players love to change gear,wearing the same WW gear for 30 levels beyond gets real boring.

2 Your Wizard remains stagnant for what seems forever,you still max out at 2 Powerpips while enemy minions start getting 3/4/5 to start battle,so pretty lopsided.it is because of this stagnant improvement that wizards are forced to play speedier spells,you simply cannot wait for 4/5 turns to finally cast a 9/10 pip spell.Also who goes first is really problematic when you fight these minions with 4 PPips as they put you into healing mode before you even get a turn.Having only 4 pips as a healer and having to heal your entire party is not an option as you need 7 pips to AOE heal.

3 Oh yes one other thing that "might" not make you happy.When players get new spells they SHOULD be effective on 90% of the minions say aside from perhaps a Life Boss is immune to Life spells effects but as is they are ALL or 99.9% immune to  Stuns.IMO only Ice Bosses should be immune to Stuns.

IMO at higher levels players should progress up to the same power pips minions are getting you should never feel like you are progressing backwards.
