I kind of like how Spiral Cup is now public like every other gauntlet, because instead of removing friends to let others play without removing friends just to let strangers do Spiral Cup. I don't have a Walmart or Target near me and I would really hate the fact that the owner of the Spiral Cup Gauntlet would have it to friends only, but sometimes I don't want people going into my Pagoda Gauntlet, like one time I said that no one enters Pagoda but a level 5 entered with two of her random friends and then called me a noob. I have played Wizard101 since it was released and I'm a level 84, but some people just don't listen, and sometimes I understand that its like "I payed $40 for this bundle, buy it yourself and then you will be able to do the Spiral Cup Gauntlet. But Wizard101 is a community(or at least was compared to six years ago) and everyone wants to have fun, in that situation I would want to make my Spiral Cup Gauntlet public, and I would hate the fact that it would be like, none of you can enter except my friends, that would just be plain mean.
After testing the Spiral Cup updates, here is how I believe it now works.
1.) Owner needs to be at locationof the "Spiral Cup" if they wish it to be open to public.
A. Friends List People, have to port to Owner and then have their team port to them.
1.) Should the people go to Tours Office ( Located in Commons ) and Click on Visit - Friends - Owners name and go to house and invite their friends that way, their friends ( team mates )Will Not get to Play.
So if you want to make your "Spiral Cup" open to public, you should Leave your wizard online when you go to sleep.
Because none of the people on your friends list can bring their friends to help them if they go to your house by way of Tours Office located in Commons.
You still need to be there and will get bugged to go home to let people play Spiral Cup.
This Spiral Cup has been voted by me and others to be the worst thing put out there. It is more trouble then it is worth,
Still waiting for you to make all my Spiral Cups Open to Public like my winterbanes and Pagodas are.
With the recent changes here's how the Spiral Cup Gauntlet should work:
1) Friends of the owner can use the Spiral Cup anytime. 2) The owner doesn't have to be present for players to use their Spiral Cup. 3) Players who arrive at a house through Castle Tours or Castle Games can't use the Spiral Cup unless they're friends with the owner. 4) If a player teleports to another player who arrived at a house through Castle Tours or Castle Games, they can't use the Spiral Cup unless they're friends with the owner.
If it doesn't seem to work as I've described, please let us know.
It's your number 4 that creates the problem! If a friend of yours goes to your house through castle tours to use the gauntlet, he cannot invite his friends to join him! Therefore eliminating it to be open to the public. Still the only way for your friends and their friends to play the Spiral cup is for the Owner to be present at it and let there friends port to them. So whats the use. It still puts a burden on the owner to be present. Your friends will not be able to use it with their friends if you are not online, and then when you are online you have to be bothered to go to your house to let them port to you. So the system is really no better. The only thing you eliminated was having to friend every single person to play it. Did not eliminate the inconvenience to the owner at all.
Have no idea the logic behind this at all. Please an administrator explain to me why this is made this way. What good does it accomplish?
increase the friends list of people that have the spiral gauntlet so they can add more friends to play there. i was thinking of buying one, i bought into the pagoda and winterbane so i could help those on trial membership but if i have to... wait those with a spiral gauntlet should have a separate friends list that consists of only players that can use their spiral gauntlet. settled lol
I completely agree here. I rushed out to buy Winterbane to put at my house for my kids and their friends to use. Then I rushed out and bought Pagoda for same reason. I ran to the crowns shop to buy all the estate games for the kids. So when Spiral Cup came out, of course I rushed out to buy that one for same reason. Imagine my shock when these new (unwritten) rules showed up.
I don't run the dungeons. My kids do. Their friends do. I don't want to friend everyone and I certainly don't want to stop what I am doing to go home so they can play.
I will not be rushing out to buy the next bundle with these limiting rules in place.
