It's currently 9:00 Est time and the game is still down. There also isn't any information from the company.
UPDATE: KI has a press release explaining the problem now. I'm eastern standard time and can log in so if you're this timezone you probably can as well. I'd advise only logging in to take care of your plants though to ease up on the servers for KI. They are doing a great job and I hope they catch the people who caused this problem.
Hmm it sure is taking a really long time to fix an error but guess there's nothing to do other then to just wait. Some on going updated info on what is going on with this issue would be nice for the Wizard101 community though.
I've been trying to login now for over 3 1/2 hours and could not figure out if it was on my end, or KI's end. So I finally use "Contact Us" and made a report. The automated reply said what it usually say when you report something-- that they'd be in touch in 24-48 hours, and just an our or so later they emailed with a response that said they were aware of the problem and were working on it with their best magic ! The referred me to this site, and I see that I'm not the only one with this same problem.
What a time to go down--with all the birthday activities and extra rewards and point for pet training, gardening etc and both the boxes and lost pages event being run againJust goes to show you how much we MISS the game when it goes down !!
To the tech support folks--we love you but please work faster--withdrawal symptoms are getting harder to manage with the game off line.
maybe everyone needs to stop going in to the game and get off their divces and wait until morning than hopefully it will come back on to play for the morning for us so when we can not get kicked out me more. dose that sound good to you guys.
Actuallly, game is Not back online for everyone.. I could get online the 29th, supposedly able to collect presents Today Nope, I can read about the festivities, bought (nominal amount) coins but game is stuck at connecting to the game If I am still awake, I will try again later.
Thank you for posting in the message boards Darwygn Have a Happy n Bountiful weekend Later
Hello all of you eager to get into our FAVORITE game to play. Here it is 8:16 PM and this is my second day of having problems logging into Wizard101. OMG, how do we survive without playing Wizard101? For real. Please, oh please KingsIsle get all of us back in the game so we can quest and be happy. Can you even send out a message somewhere giving us an idea as to what is being done? Peace to all!
Oops! Fair warning to all. Do not use all caps in your messages. I did (guess someone considers that's shouting) and here I am trying to repost. Here it is 8:43 PM and I've been out of the game for my second day here. Please, KingsIsle, keep all of your fans happy by getting us back into our most favorite game. How do we survive not playing Wizard101? Can we, at least, be informed as to what is going on to keep us out of Wizard101? My launcher first appears as a totally white window void of any graphics, then slowly the launcher (or sign-on window) appears but when I enter my username and password, I'm given an error message. Oh my goodness. Is this all due to Harvey squatting on us? Let's all send that monster back out into the Gulf. Please keep us informed so the wait is not so horrid. A little information is good for the soul. Peace to all
