MUCH older player here. I started playing RPGs well before the idea of playing games on the internet came about. I still have my jewel-cut dice! I'm old enough that none of the kids (that aren't related to me) either think I'm lying or they just gawk when I tell them.
I have been enjoying Wiz101 as it is a bit more family-friendly than many of the on-line games I have seen...and it's just fun. I love some of the humor which is tucked in here and there!
I am an older player, I play this game with most of my free time because I am disabled. I have to say it is nice to finally play a game where the players don't find the want to be hateful, and most of the people I meet on here are very kind and helpful.
35 Yr olde player here, My kids play Wizard and the more I watched them play the more I wanted to give it a try. I used to be a hardcore World of Warcraft addict but I found this very fun and honestly sense my kids like it I now duel them and enjoy leveling with them. My daughter loves that I play, my son I think isnt too happy I play the same game lol. Anyways "Wolf Lifeflame" is my main character, he is a Life Wizard and currently hanging around Triton Ave, soon to be moving on to Firecat Alley. Would love to find more adults and add them as friends.
Well I am 65, and my grandaughter started me on this. She no longer plays it very much because she does not have a computer /lab top to play on. My grandson also got me hooked on this game. I am hard core hooked on Wizard 101. This is not just a childs game. It is so much fune. I am low in the scheme of things in this game and slow. I play alone and will often ask if someone needs help. I don't just run into a battle because that is rude.I use old time rules. I have made some true friends and if they say they need help if I am not in battle/or as soon as I get out of battle I port to them, after all they are friends and they need help. Since I never ask for help I hope they would come if the day ever comes that I do ask for help. I just love this game. It is the only one I play. Thanks KI for all your hard work and time. Phyllis
Older Player here and I have met some nice older players in this game. One player and I have been playing together for several years, we are both up in age, like retirement. We meet in the game and quest together and have fun. Because we are adults we have spoken to each other in real life and talked about the game in depth, plan strategy, and just have a ball. It is a very special game when you have someone to play with. When we play alone it gets Boring. I remember dressing in a pig outfit with tail and pot belly, standing in commons and saying, "I need a Girl" One player passed by me and said "Lots of luck fella" My friend and I was rolling on the floor laughing. I even told one kid my tail was itching could he scratch for me. LOL..we had a ball and it is all harmless fun. My hope is that everyone in this game finds someone nice to play it with as it will be a good entertainment for you. Alone it is slow and gets a bit tiring.
Adult player here too. My kids discovered the game, and I made an account to help them out. Now my twin girls and 4 year old boy play with me regularly. Every Friday night we run Pagoda or Winterbane together!
Best part of playing as an adult........I never have to worry about someone else buying me crowns!
I am an "older" player as well. I just stopped playing an online game for the same reasons. Greedy and rude players. We need more fun! Only drawback I see is that once you reach level 50 there is nothing left to accomplish so until new world comes lots of people have stopped playing. Anyway good luck and if you need a friend let me know!
