WizNewsletter - June 2022

Created in October of 2020, the WizNewsletter serves as a way for students and staff to recap on the month's updates. WizNetworkers spend countless hours researching, writing, editing, and implementing each section so that the happenings of the wizarding world do not go unnoticed. Let’s get into the news from the past month!​

Announced earlier in June, the Game Design Department was restructured in order to improve efficiency and content! The Inquisitor team was unfortunately disbanded, with current members being moved into the greater Game Design team, and the last Community Engagement will be held at the beginning of July 2022. The Arena team was moved into the Academics Department, but they will still continue to function as normal. The Unspeakable, Magiventologist, and Systems teams were all merged into one larger Game Design community, while the Lore team will continue as it is with minimal changes to focus on more game-facing content.​
Unfortunately, we have decided to say goodbye to the Potterwatch team which means sadly the Performers were let go with this change, and we will miss them dearly. Our Directors, however, will be making their way over to the WizNetworker team where they will now create and focus on videos for updates/teasers on YouTube, Instagram Reels, and possibly TikTok in the future as new Video WizNetworkers. This will ideally help the Media and Public Relations department work together as a whole. 7 years is a long time, so we thank all Potterwatch team members who have worked so hard through and through. You have been a great help in the Potterworld Team and will be a part of it forever.​
Following an announcement earlier in June, the Arena team has completed its merge into the Academics Department from the Game Design Department! Arena and Academics members will continue to work as they did before, while those in Class Design will begin creating content for the entire department. We are excited for the changes and new experiences this will bring in the future!​

Grab your goggles and snorkel gear as we dive into the Under the Sea Store Releases. It'll be hard to keep the sand out of your shoes as you prance around Hogworth in the new Starfish Headband! Feel like a mermaid with our Coral Wand and matching Coral Broom appearance. Don't forget to pop on over to the store to check out the Bubbles Death Effects and Beach Housing Scenery, as well! Not only do we have these summer-fun new releases, but we also held a fantastic Fantasy Sale! Players got to enjoy a mythical 30% off on all fantasy-themed items until June 16th.​
The Battle of Grimlotts begins as smoke fills the air, with the flames only growing bigger! The vaults were sealed shut as the Auralocks rushed in to catch Grux. Players raced their way to the Roleplay Hub, teleporting straight to Grimlotts. They gathered as much Raw Magic as possible in order to break through Grux's defenses! With accumulated Raw Magic, players unlocked rewards, including 10 Roleplay Tokens which allowed them to unlock exclusive the Roleplay Staff, as well as other collectibles! Thank you to all you brave witches & wizards for helping us win The Battle of Grimlotts.​
Come spend Pride Month in the colorful coastal town of Iris Cove! Up until July 2nd, you can help a variety of townsfolk by completing one main quest and six activities that will be available every 12 hours. As you complete the daily quests or minigames, you'll be awarded Essence and Pride Tokens, which can be used to unlock and purchase exclusive rewards! Additionally, Vixen Van Gogh has made an appearance in Iris Cove to teach his art classes! Completing his memory minigame will award Canvas Coins that can be used to purchase the Pride Paint Bucket, or converted into Pride Tokens. Talk to Nyan Kevin in the Great Hall to get started!​
After another successful conclusion of May the Fourth, please give a loud cheer for the winners of the event’s very own Star Battle FFA, Escort Payload, and Domination tournaments! The victors were decided based on their number of wins, kills, and deaths, each game having a total of 5 winning places. Congratulations to jacquas, ColaCinema, J2424, HektorTM, and SLGMatt on earning the top 5 spots of FFA! These players had spent hours killing other players and mobs for points. Fantastic job to Wogtie, Ismoo, coldplanet, RelentlessSergio, and egg_AV on securing the lead of Escort Payload! For this tournament, the Rebels and Imperials had battled it out, moving and stopping the payload. Finally, congratulations to RelentlessSergio, STREETRATWARR, Wogtie, Ismoo, and picklyu on doing an outstanding job of winning Domination’s top places! Domination had included two sides, with an objective of capturing the opposing team’s three points. A round of applause for each placed winner in Star Battle’s Tournaments! We hope to see you reign victorious in the next Star Battle event!​
The recent Party Update has brought us some long-awaited additions to the parties system with new and improved commands and features. There are now more ways to manage and use parties, such as clickable invites and a display of where each party member is. Party leaders also have the ability to join a game and have the entire party join the queue with them. Don't forget, parties no longer have a member limit, allowing party leaders to invite all of their friends without worrying about leaving anyone out. So go get your party on!​
After the release of the Potterworld Wiki, the Scribe team has been hard at work implementing and editing more pages for players to enjoy! A variety of new information, as well as updated changes to existing pages, have been made. From numerous gameplay and development edits to a new Academics page, feel free to explore all the wiki has to offer!​

Join us in not only congratulating the Flying and Dueling Tournament winners, but the Star Racing Tournament victors as well.
