A Q&A With Ditto Wizard!

Today we have a guest blog from official fan site and one of KingsIsle’s fuzziest fans! Fuzzy you say? Well meet Ditto Wizard! Today Chip and Ditto bring you some question and answers about online safety and Wizard101. 

Chip:  What is a ‘fabricated American’?

Ditto:  Great question, and one me get a lot.  Fabricated Americans are just like regular folks – We play games and have friends and family and all that good stuff, not that different from everybody else.  We just happen to be a little furrier and generally more colorful than regular folks, that’s all. Oh, and we all have super powers.  Next Question.

Chip:  I don’t have any super powers.

Ditto:  Ssssh, next question Chip.

Chip:  You don’t have any superpowers either, Ditto,  unless snoring and eating pie are somehow super powers.

Ditto:  Sssh, come on Chip, you’re ruining the mystique.  Next question.

Chip:  Oh, ok.   Why is online safety so important to you?

Ditto:  Online safety is important because being online, and especially online games, should be fun and exciting and entertaining for everyone – it should never be dangerous.  Unfortunately, there are people out there who want to make it dangerous, who want to use the reach and the anonymity of the internet and online games for not so nice things.  Fortunately, being anonymous online can work for us, too – nobody ever needs to know who you really are or where you really live for you to enjoy your favorite online games, and if you follow some simple safety rules and not give out your real life information, you can stay safe and have fun.

Chip:  Is there really more to life than puppet shows?

Ditto:   Really Chip?

Chip:  It’s on the list here, Ditto.

Ditto:  <sigh and head shake>  Is there really more to life than puppet shows?  Yes.  Next question.

Chip:  What first drew you to Wizard101 (and subsequently Pirate101)?

Ditto:  For Wizard101, I saw a bunch of commercials for it while I was watching cartoons, and the concept of a school that trained wizards reminded me of that movie I really liked… what was it… um… The Avengers, that’s it…

Chip:  That doesn’t make sense, Ditto – The Avengers came out like four years after Wizard101 did.

Ditto:  Oh that’s right – the Avengers is what made me get into Pirate101 – the guy with the eye patch, he’s a pirate and captains a flying ship, right?

Chip:  I think so, yeah.  If you have an eye patch you’re a pirate – I think that’s the rule.  His ship definitely flies, too – it’s really cool.

Ditto:  Ok, right, got it.  I started playing Pirate101 because of The Avengers, so Wizard101 must have been that other movie, what was it… It was released around the same time as Wizard101, in 2008, with the kids and the school and the magic, and…  Oh, Wall-E, that was it.  I saw the commercial and it reminded me of Wall-E, so that’s why I started playing.  Next Question.

Chip:  What?  Oh, never mind.  What inspired you to setup the camera and start recording your adventures?

Ditto:  Well, here’s a behind the scenes secret I’ve never revealed publicly – I was actually playing Wizard101 from almost opening day, and when I decided to start filming my Pyromancer… I already had a level 50 Necromancer – back when that was max level.  I was actually pretty good at the game, and my uncle Ben told me that with great power, comes great responsibility, so I started a new alt and decided to blog it.  For the kids.

Chip:  You just stole most of that from the origin of ‘Spider Man’.

Ditto:  Oh, OK – gee, somebody’s picky today. I was just trying to be dramatic. .Actually  I just always wanted to do a blog, and because there were no blogs out there from a Fabricated American perspective I thought I could present a unique point of view.  What I didn’t expect was to be so totally embraced (embarrassed – blooper) by the amazing Wizard101 community – that was the best and most awesome surprize, and I love all my fans and followers!   The thing about the level 50 necromancer is true, though.

Chip:  What is Ditto Monster currently doing in game?

Ditto:  Trying to get through Zafaria and finally get to the next worlds!  Ditto is so far behind!  But thats one of my favorite parts about Wizard 101 – even though all kinds of great new stuff is always coming out, I don’t ever feel the need to hurry or rush through anything.  The game world and storylines are so rich and fun and the side quests are so well thought out and entertaining, I just play at my own pace and have a good time – that’s the most important thing for me.

Chip:  What is your favorite memory for all your time playing Wizard101?

Ditto:  Honestly I have so many it’s hard to choose.  The first time one of my posts got featured on the Wizard101 launcher was a big one,  Interviewing Fred Howard at PAX East was huge, too.  In-game, I think my favorite Memory is doing Big Ben with the Ravenwood Radio crew – that was amazing and awesome, and a great quest.

Chip:  What’s your favorite part of Wizard101?

Ditto:  That’s easy – The community.  This community is the best out there, and are so very welcoming to Fabricated Americans like me.  They’re the best!

Chip:  And what about in the game itself?

Ditto: Well that could only be…. Meteor Strike!!

Chip:  What would you like to see added to Wizard101?

Ditto:  Ever since I saw them as enemies, I always thought having a giant one of those mechanical clockwork spiders from Marleybone would be the coolest mount.  That’s like my #1 dream in Wizard101.  Also, adding cooking to crafting, so you can gather ingredients and make pies, and eating the pies can give you buffs.  OR you could throw pies at enemies.

Chip:  I was waiting for him to get the pie reference in…  Ditto, you never disappoint.

Ditto:  Thank you.  Me think.  Next question.

Chip.  OK, last question – What would you say to encourage others to be creative and embark on creating their own fansite?

Ditto:  I would say the key element is making sure you have a link to Ditto Monster’s site – that’s very important for a successful fansite.  Maybe more important than actually talking about the game.

Chip:  Ditto….

Ditto:  OK, me only kidding.  The key element is to find your own voice, your own passion, and build on that. You can use the other fansites for inspiration – I know I did, definitely; I was reading sites like Friendly Necromancer and Diary of a Wizard and Homework in a Graveyard daily –  but build your own identity, make sure your fansite says something about you, make sure it’s uniquely yours.  There are so many wonderful aspects of these games and this community, everyone has a place and every idea can be built upon to make something that’s special and that stands out as uniquely yours.  Also, as always, have fun and play safe!!

    I love the comment “play at your own pace” I have been a member for three years, along with my son and were still working on all of our wizards.

  14. danielcordell / Sep 19 2013 8:45 pm

    hi ditto i really love wizard101 but i have really been thinking we should get a good trading system in the game such as being able to trade hats robes and such instead of just treasure cards. i have come across tons of situations were i just wish that i were able to trade other items and i really like how the trading system for the treasure cards work it would just put more variety in the trading application of this game if you could do so i bet it would do great for this game. thank you for reading this if you have time but keep in mind this is only a suggestion i hope you like this idea if so put it to good use i know you could make something work if you tried have a nice day. 🙂

    • sarahf / Sep 20 2013 5:10 pm

      i totally agree danielcordell. that would be awesome and i think it is a great idea 😛 i hope they use it

  15. Sarai ShadowHeart / Sep 19 2013 10:47 pm

    May I just say what a comfort to find an individual who
    genuinely knows what they are discussing over the internet.
    You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    A lot more people really need to look at this and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised that you are not more popular because
    you most certainly possess the gift.

    What’s the next move with 101 series? That is to say, what are some ideas floating around for the next 101 game? I have to admit I’ve been wondering about it for a while now, and I’m sure there are other 101 players who are also curios as to where 101 will go next.
