    Well, that's odd -- think it could be your browser?

    No Idea - I can play every other You tube video including @Stephanie Dawnheart video's (which I do watch and am a subscriber ) Maybe KI just doesn't like me

    @luvs2sleepalot The KI Live doesn't actually start until 4 mins 16 seconds into the video. Maybe that's the issue? :P

    Another possibility is that their video is 1 hour 39 minutes long, which could take some time to download. Most of mine are around 20 mins

    I agree that having the pets on a battleboard rather than just moving around in the arena would make more sense from a consistency standpoint. That's what Pirate players are used to. Concentrating on "Cheering" properly, I miss what's going on in the battle anyway, and then I'm surprised when a pet is defeated. Not being able to control which of the opponent pets are attacked during a turn is also frustrating. There is just too much AI involved and not enough Player decision.

    Completely understandable! I know a lot of people feel the same way about pet derby in Wizard101. The great thing about Wizard and Pirate is that there are a ton of different things that people can latch on to and have a passion for. Admittedly, I don't have a lot of experience with pet sparring, but that's partially because of the problem you highlighted in your post. Either way, it was nice to see them try pirate first for a change.

    That WAS the issue! As soon as i manually moved the cursor to 4 min 16 (actually 20 but whose counting) it started moving!

    Thanks!

    Personally? I love pet sparring, it's a great idea... should we try it out on KI Lives? How long do you think it would take?

    I'm happy to hear you enjoy pet sparring, but I'd rather you did something else. The matching alone burns 5 minutes or so, and if I recall correctly, last time they tried it, they didn't get a match for some reason.

    Now that you have finished the Presidio and gotten your parents' skiff, you can find some nice side quests around Skull Island, like maybe try one of the Party Barge quests -- to showcase gameplay rather than heading back to Circus Maximus. People also enjoy sinking ships, since more than 4 can participate at one time. Let's have a "wolf pack" and sink some boss ships.
