The new updates are interesting , but I want to tell you that my direction indicator is blocked it does not show me the direction to go, it always remains stationary pointing forward. Let me know if it can be fixed, I also reinstalled the game, but to no avail.

I thank you warmly.

I hope that one of the first seasons removes those nasty pets.

I also wish that Tournaments offered a reward. I think that honestly they are the best way to get PVP-cautious players interested in PVP at all.

So excited for this. I feel like Wiz took a lot of steps with this update: With all the changes, I could not stop guessing what KI has in stock for the future. I see a lot of potential ahead; you cannot have potential without making big moves like this. Some of the things that sticks out:

What I like

Merciless & Other Gear Changes: The old Merciless gear was a mistake. It was too similar to dragoon which was released earlier. Old Merciless took the catacombs experience away. The nerfing of Morganthe amulets is refreshing. It opens up the possibility of other amulets being used. I don't mind other meta gear being changed in the future.

Loyalty Program: The implementation is great start; I hope it becomes broader with future updates. I have suggested in the past, achieving badges unlocks loyalty rewards. It will be cool if they account related badges.

What I am excited about :

Cantrips: Since it is another activity that consumes energy, could there be other sources of magic to get energy in future update. Could you release more pets that give energy?

Spellements & Dual School Concept: Both of these comes down to, is it worth it? What if there are dual school spells that can be unlock through spellements? Here is an example:

Cost 2 Death Pips + 2 Myth Pips
Give all allies -90% next outgoing damage charm. All enemies cannot attack for 1 round, then deal 1000 dmg to all enemies next turn.

I was just wondering what happened to all my arena tickets? They are gone and so is the NPC that sold items for arena tickets. Did I earn all those just to lose them?

After the update went live, I watched social media (Facebook and Twitter) as the community expressed their displeasure with the update. I know of at least 3 online friends who stated they are quitting the game over this update.

I can understand their frustration.

That said, I felt a little better about the update after hearing the developers all acknowledge that this update is the start of something big. How did Prof Falmea put it? "This update should be viewed not as opening night, not as dress rehearsal, but rather as clearing the stage for the next level of play."

Fine KI, that is all well and good. BUT you should have stated that back in March before the test realm went live. I think there would have been a lot less upset players if they knew that was your thinking and reasoning a month ago. I fear that even with this explanation from the developers, it is too little too late for many of those they angered. KI needs to be a little more open to their core fanbase.

I for one am giving the benefit of the doubt, I have enjoyed this game since 2009. I realize that many of the blunders and missteps the company took were the result of many years of mismanagement by pre-Gamigo leadership. It will take more than one year to correct the course and set sail into the waters of the future.

Please, allow us your loyal users to be part of the solution.

Me too. My arena tickets are gone without any warning or compensation for the time I put into earning them. What's up with this? Please respond the the question.

Arena tickets have now been replaced with Blue Arena Tickets. Since the beginning of the test realm and for the 2 and a half weeks it was going on, they gave multiple warnings to all players on their social media accounts that arena tickets were going to be replaced and that they should spend them before they are gone.
