revert wizard101 update
With your recent update to Wizard101, we've seen one of the worst meta shifts the game has ever seen. As tough of a pill as it is to swallow, we have to recognize that PvP is the centralized appeal to the majority of players. Unfortunately, many of recent updates catered towards PvP have been inspired by a select few people with power in their position, rather than listening to the community as most other game developers do. The most recent update to Wizard101 has completely ruined the PvP experience with an influx of new spells that nobody wanted or asked for.
Some important issues that need to be reverted or changed as soon as possible:
* Remove the concept of a timer in PvP
* Revert all of the new utility spells (Roshambo) OR make them not bypass aegis
* Bring back enchanted shadow spells
* Pointless nerfs and audits to certain spells and item cards that render pets and gear worthless or broken (Examples including the Efreet item card on the Efreet pet, Mana burn item card, Guardian Spirit on Battle Cherub Pet, etc…)
Understand the identity of each school in the game, instead of nerfing the school over and over because of a few complaints from people in a powerful position. Each school is supposed to hold a unique position in the meta to make it viable in most matchups. With the recent update to Wizard101, it has allowed people to jade and stall without any penalty. As of the current state of the game, there are very few, if not any strategies that are reliable enough to kill a jade. A step in the right direction might include recognizing these school identities, and working with them instead of removing them or nerfing them. Major examples of this are Balance being the control school, which means they need controlling spells like mana burn, aura pop, and other spells to CONTROL the match against an opponent who can buff up their hits whereas Balance lacks in that area. Another example being Life which is supposed to be a healing school that can be played offensively, that can also heal when pressured. With this new update, it has not only allowed, but encouraged lifes to jade or spam heals because there is no penalty to doing so, as there is almost no way to lose as a jade in the current meta. This will likely result in a huge nerf to healing/jading which will destroy the Life school on its own, making it less viable to play.
Please consider listening to the large majority of the community, as opposed to a couple content creators or developers with power, before finalizing major updates that will ultimately kill the game, which has been quite evident in the recent drop off in people in queue for Ranked PvP. Finally, if all changes don't get added, please consider making a separate queue of pvp without the addition of the new things added in the new update.
