Hello all,

Tonight there will be a maintenance from 11PM PDT - 2AM PDT. There is no patch, just a restart.

Time Conversions: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20140730T23&p1=224&ah=3

Maintenance Question: What kind of news would you like to be displayed on our news page? Or rather, what kind of news interests you the most when it comes to PWI?

Edit: There was a small minor item shop bug, that's being fixed, but it's not player facing. This is why you may see a small patch, but the maintenance is really for the restart.

    First non-human reply!

    The latest manual patch appears to be: Patch 800-801 0.9MB (900403 bytes)
    It is weirdly small for some reason.

    This patch hasn't been officially listed yet.

    The news is that there are some many possible experiences out there and yet one only experiences one of them.

    Upcoming Game Updates would be great to see! The progress PWI is going through.

    Example: We just got this from China, working out kinks, faced an entire grammatical issue with new patches, etc.

    I feel this may be nice to see that PWI is doing something, as well as create some sort of log to see their own progress. :)

    This is what I would like to see; I also wonder if they really have good future plans.

    Those unknown future plans are what keep me luring forums, even when I am not playing anymore.

    What news I really want?

    Breaking News: PWI GM to reinforce EULA of two account per person

    Also in the news :
    - agreement made with PWI china for independent game update
    - NEW DQ reward point introduced
    - Various fix to glitch and bugs
    - Sweetiebot to appear in game as NPC rivaling Duke shouts

    Really surprised by the lack of responses.

    I would like to see updates informing the players of where PWI is up to with the replacement system for DQ rewards, upcoming updates and patches and progress of fixes etc.

    Something right out there, an apology to all the players from PWI for letting the game get into its current state including letting those that utilized bugs to gain an advantage and were never punished. Along with the goon exp being back to what it use to be so everyone can now use the glitch to power level to 105.

    I had the same thought as you, BUT seeing your post led me to realize the consequences if they did provide advance info on upcoming changes/additions.

    You know there are far too many whiners out there, that would constantly ***** and gripe about how long PWI is taking, or missed deadlines. They can't help themselves, they just have to be ******** about something and this would just be more fuel for the fire.

    Ah, thought of that, but figured no deadlines... just give a progress report as to where they stand.
    For example, the last update regarding DQ rewards was that China had to build something with ARC and PWI; which PWE can't touch without them. So 0 progress, just an annoying waiting game. In the same post as that info, sparkie hinted at content which I would like to see a progress on

    I suggest you read the current tos; there is no limit on the number of accounts allowed per person. There is a limit of 2 accounts ONLINE simultaneously, but even that is not in the tos, just in the load screen notices.



    I would like to see updates on bug fixes/the DQ system replacement also (nhmb)
    • You may only have 2 accounts per person, regardless of how many computers you own.

      There isn't a viable reason to create an excessive number of accounts, so any suspicious activity from now on will be fully dealt with. We aren't going to punish you for having existing accounts prior to this rule, but you can only be online on two at once at the most.

      *Note: Excessive account creation has been and will continued to be pursued. Provided you did not abuse this before, you should have nothing to worry about.


    It's 2 accounts unless the accounts were created prior to that announcement.

    first thing i did when i started playing pwi (over 5 years ago) was spam up hundreds of accounts. because new games always give away free things when they first come out, so glad i did, i only use 2 at a time but hypotheticly i have hundreds, just never bother with most, if curios last time i counted/ checked my notbook i had 170+.

    PWI Update

    1) Glitch 1 - Not being fixed, not being looked at, live with it
    2) Glitch 2 - can not be recreated, will not be fixed
    3) Glitch 3 - Does not exist
    4) PQ 3 - Ummm *silence*
    5) Glitch 5 - We are working on it, keep a look out for future updates in our future patch notes

    Something along the above line would help.

    PWI News

    *Stuff*

    Regarding glitches
    We are working on them.

    Personally, I would like to see everything in one place, particularly the news page. I don't like having to check facebook for information/codes or the forum,. Scouring thru posts to see replies to things that are buggy/glitchy is a pain and we should have ONE place to get all info.

    Updates, upcoming events, codes, acknowledgement of things that are broken/buggy/glitched and reassurance they are being worked on and pretty much anything relating to the function/playability of the game.

    - Upcoming features and patches (~ 1 month ahead)
    - Upcoming sales, promotions and charge rewards etc (that will run the next week)
    - Current events and redeemable freebies. The kind you only post on Facebook. Not everyone uses facebook.

    What do I not wish to see?
    - Promotions and such for games that are not PWI. That's just spam which is not relevant to PWI players at all. Annoying.

    Firstly, I'd really like it if news posts stated correct deadlines and were proof read before being posted. Also, if mistakes were pointed out, that they be corrected instead of left wrong.

    Aside from that, pretty much what everyone else has mentioned. There is a general consensus among the player base that the game wont last much longer because staff on this side and China's side don't really give a **** about it anymore. Regardless of the validity of that claim, at this stage, it would do more good than harm to let us all know the state of things. I am pretty sure there was mentioned before that China doesn't give permission to PWE staff to divulge much, if any, information to the players so I really don't see this happening. But it would be nice to not be stuck in limbo for once on things.

    Also, and possibly more of a blog post, I'd like to see one of the developers from PWCNs version make a guest appearance after spending atleast a week playing PWEs version giving an honest opinion on all the lovely things that aren't working properly. b:cute

    Stop sprouting this stupid rumor about PQ3 not working.

    PQ3 works fine, they patched it to make it unable to be completed with multiclienting abuse now.If you run it solo on your 1 Class its fine as long as you simply retake quests and are quick to retake it after boss dies.
