So, I was on my friend's computer, and it is really weird and doesn't play the slideshow when you log in to wizard101.com. So instead of the slideshow, the whole time we were there, there was a big picture that said that PvP was being revamped with all new arenas, tournaments, and rare prizes!?! It said to click the button below for more details, but below it said "to view this you need adobe flash". I tried clicking on the picture but nothing happened. Weird, eh? I was wondering if this was an old thing, or if we were previewing something new that hasn't been released yet.
What you saw probably looks like this:
That's actually old. That poster is back from when they launched the pvp you know today. Well, kind of . . . tournaments went by the wayside thanks to the cheaters, and gold wagering never made it out of the test realm . . . .
I actually get the same thing that your friend saw on my iphone when I surf Wizard101.com, but underneath that poster I have a box that says this: "In order to view this content correctly you need to have Adobe Flash Player installed." Of course, iphones aren't able to do that. BUT, what that tells me is that your friend needs to install the latest and greatest Adobe Flash Player to see the site correctly.
Hope that clears up the confusion!
