Another week bites the dust, so it's time for another Feedback Friday!
Standard disclaimer applies: We do not guarantee to use each and every idea submitted, and questions we pose may or may not be pertaining to things we are currently working on, or will ever undertake. Sometimes, there are just technical limitations that make changing things difficult to impossible, and though we possess all manner of magic wands here, there are technological beasts out there that are beyond our grasp. Sometimes, we may not feel it is within the spirit and vision of the spiral to add or change something. Also, we realize that some of these topics may have been addressed before in other threads - sometimes it's good to pick up a discussion again. Chances are I have read your threads and would like to hear more!
This one will be a 3-part discussion about quick chat. Part 1, this week we would like to ask... what phrases would you add to the quick chat that comes up in combat? For example, "May I use your trap?" or "Don't attack the same school twice."
Looking forward to hear about what you would add! Have a fantastic weekend, Wizards!

I see 2 things that would help out the wizards without text chat. 1: under battle orders, you cant tell someone to use an AOE spell. you can only say focus attack on a certain monster. sometimes its more efficient to have them cast an aoe spell and we cant tell them this.
2: I see wizards without text chat/open chat in the hatchery. They all want to hatch but they do not understand that they need to lvl pets to adult. I understand this is explained in the player guide but most young people dont read the instructions to anything :). It might be helpful if we can point this out to them with a simple phrase " lvl your pet to adult with the mini games before you hatch " ~Ronan Dawn~
Hi, Professor! I would very much like to see the phrases "I'm sorry.", "I apologize." and "I'm sorry I don't have any attack (and healing) cards in my hand right now." in the quick chat options during battles. Having a phrase similar to, "I'm sorry, I got pulled into this battle, I apologize.", would be very nice, too. :)
Do not flee; I can heal you. I do not have any healing cards. You may use any trap I cast. Is this your quest. Please do not kill the boss. Do you have ______trap or blade for me. ( Life, Storm, Fire, Ect.) I will port to you when I am done with this battle. I am still battling. I got caught---Sorry!
What really annoys me is when I am in battle and one of my friends without text chat ports to me, I can't say hi. So..... I think that the whole section of hello when you are not in battle should be added to the vocabulary when you are in battle.
Also..... it annoys me when I can't tell my friend to use an AoE attack, so I have to end up saying use whatever school on all of the enemies by using battle commands, which gets them more confused.
Also..... it annoys me when my friends end up getting defeated and ask for a heal which I don't have. I think you should add the phrase " I will look for a heal card" or " Sorry I can't heal you" (Sorry if that is already a phrase).

"Be careful, this boss cheats." (or maybe like Cheryl09 suggested: "This boss cheats, please watch how I attack.")
"Sorry I got caught!" (they sometimes get mad when you do, especially right when they defeat an enemy and you drag another one) "Shield me please." "I'm running out of cards." "Sorry I don't have any healing spells." (when someone says heal me) "Don't hit! Something will happen." "It's OK" (if someone apologizes in combat)
Some ideas: *May I have a Blade? *May I use your Trap? *May I please flee? *Sorry I got pulled in. *Oops. Sorry... *Please forgive me. *Sorry, I got disconnected. *Be careful. *Bad boy/girl (when talking to your pet) *I, <insert name here>, will knock you all down! (for taunts)
I've been meaning to post this for a while, and got the perfect opportunity xD
What's really annoying, and has made me keep a distance from none chat players (which really, isn't fair) is the fact that you can't express your anger, disaproval, or annoyance on quick chat. Although these may all be negative things to say, it's hard to communicate without them. Everyone makes mistakes, but they need to be aware to be able to fix them, or at least apologise.
