Bundles Go Live For Wizard101 UK!

Are you a Wizard101 UK player? One of the worst things that UK players have to watch in the US is the creative bundles that KingsIsle creates - before now, UK players never had access to them. But now, that's changing! Bundles are becoming available online - and now's the perfect opportunity to buy!

The Missing Pet Mystery: Conclusion Note (And Community Manager Appreciation Day!)

The Missing Pet Mystery has been ongoing for some time, and existed as one of my more in-depth contests in the community - that I'm happy about. However, as many of you know, I had some unexpected complications that occupied most of my November and December, and now, January hasn't slowed down for me.

The Tribal Crew Pack!

Pirate101 is on its way to matching Wizard101's features and options in-game! They started with PvP, and have now introduced the first live pack. In beta, one pack existed, but it hasn't been moved to live. This new pack uses a new redemption screen, suggesting that more packs are being created and reworked. So, what comes in this new Azteca-themed pack? You're going to want to take a look!

PvP Rank Resets: Requests and Reasoning

A discussion started the other night on Twitter, and it was over rank resets. See, some people believe that ranks should be periodically reset in the game to encourage PvP participation and fairness. Plus, with the issues present today, this might clean things up. Many, however, fear rank resets entirely. They spend a lot of time on ranks. So the question is asked: Rank resets, or no rank resets?

Magmapalooza Begins in Wizard101 UK!

No matter which version of Wizard101 you play, you know that creating impressive pets requires an impressive number of snacks - and those can be hard to come by!

Five Ways KingsIsle Can Keep Worlds Fast-Paced and Fun (1-2)

Pirates are still breathing in a fresh breath of MooShu air today, and Azteca is being threatened still in both Wizard101 US and UK. New worlds are the major portion of content updates, and the part that most users look forward to. Sure, there's gardening, pets, nautical training... that's all great, but worlds progress your character in level and status. However, KingsIsle has to be careful with worlds. When a game becomes work, people stop playing.
