Is Wizard101 being hit by hackers?
Specifically in the dueling area. Today my ice wizard fought a death wizard named, Jason (no last name), and we both put up a good battle shielding and attacking and what not until Im pretty sure we both ran out of cards. We passed for about 3 turns until all of a sudden the rankings menu that comes at the end says that he made a victory and I lost 16 points. I had not fled, logged off or anything. It just simply counted me as the loser. What happened here?? I like dueling and if people have to amount to cheating, I am not really even willing to play anymore.

Young Wizard, you answered your own question.

You ran out of cards.

Once a player runs out of cards, they are unable to cast and are forced to take a loss in the match. This occurs in both PvP and regular duels. Your opponent either had a reshuffle card or was not out of cards, and therefore was able to continue to cast, and won the match.

But that happened to one of my teammates one time and he never did anything just kept on casting spells. Then all of a sudden on the next turn, he dies for no reason. he had full health, still had a lot of cards and nobody was attacking him. How did he die?

I've never ran out of cards before on Caroline Sunbright (I have on Mariah Waterwalker), I've ran low on cards before though.

Seems to me that the system is jumping ahead a little.
Like the game gets bored of a perticular battle and instead of
letting you finish the battle, it just ends it. :x

Whats annoying is that people are threatening to hack other peoples account. My good friend won a battle against this one girl and she said "its time to hack" and then I talked to her and she threatened to hack me. I've had this happen to me before when someone threatens to hack me, but this just scares me a lot.

This is why there's a 'REPORT' button!

If you are being threatened in the game, please use the REPORT button. Just click on the character or their name in the chat window and the Friends panel will appear. Click the REPORT button and enter info that you were threatened.

Then select the IGNORE button to never hear from that player again.

If you want the prize, you have to build the ladder rung by rung. There are no shortcuts.
