Cricket Broadband

Ever have one of those weeks where nothing goes right? thats been me dealing with cricket, first they lose my payment then they upgrade my plan and tell me i need to pay the additional difference, then they dont update my account to reflect any of the changes. And why do you ask did this happen? Well it just so happens that they installed NEW billing software and i was a casualty of that decision. So its taken all week to straighten the mess out. And what did it take to fix it? why nothing short of getting a new number for my modem, which i have to register like a new account. Suffice it to say I'm not a happy camper right now. I apologize for the rant but I'm really steamed about the whole thing still. Until next time Remember Ice is your Friend

Possible new spell idea for wizard 101

My all time favorite spell is Blade Barrier from AD&D. This was a cleric spell, which worked like this, the cleric would cast it and be surrounded by a number of swordblades which would damage any enemy which came into the radius. Every time an enemy was damaged in this way 1 of the blades would vanish. This would continue till the blades were used up or the spell duration expired.Think about it you cast a blade barrier then, cast some other damage spell and voila the mob is defeated. I think this is where Blizzard got their idea for the paladin thorns aura in Diablo 2. So this what I would like to see in game, some sort of blade barrier. So until next time, Remember Ice is your Friend

Crowns vs. Subscription

Theres always been a debate on which method is best in Wizard 101. Now that KI has even juiced the balance even more to subs. Even with the expanded inventory, friends list, and faster energy regen, I think I still prefer the crowns method. My reasons are simple, I had a sub for 2 months then went back to crowns due to the fact that I couldnt afford the  monthly fee. With crowns I can pay as I want when I want. My finances arent what I would consider stable, so crowns are the better method for me. Now if I could afford it, then I would go sub all the way, so I wouldnt have to worry about if I had the enough crowns on account to unlock the next area or dungeon.
