Question for One-Eyed Jack

As most of us know Kingsisle are sending out marco pollo's map in the mail

My question is this: Is it by mail? Or is it by email?

If it is mail to our homes will people in other continents ie Europe be getting it?

Hi!

These maps were mailed out to many existing Wizard101 players and should continue to arrive at homes this week and even possibly next. Of course, we had to have your physical mailing address on file so unfortunately we were not able to mail maps to many of our existing Wizard players. This promotion was US based only.

Hey,

I'm not from the US. Personally I feel it's very unfair that only US players are being offered a free "prize" along with this map.
You wouldn't consider sending out a digital version of the map to all the players who are unable to receive it by regular post?

Thanks.

Continuing on about the map, if you don't mind.

Once we solve the code.
Is there a place we might be able to enter it or check it, to see if we are correct?

Jack,
If I could trouble you with one more question in this regard.
I have 2 paid wizard101 accounts, their last subscription renewals were paid via CC (requiring my mailing address, etc), but when I just checked today, the information was not on file.
I updated my wizard101 account today.... Is it too late?

Yes, you can always put the code into the redeem code web page from the Shop Icon at the top of the Pirate101.com website: https://www.pirate101.com/free_game?context=redeem

I'll pass your message along to Marketing.

Note that the code on the map can be used up to four times, so perhaps you could find a generous person out there that hasn't redeemed their code all four times.

Heya OFx,

The marketing promotion maps have all been sent out. You never know when something similiar to this will happen again though, so it is a good idea to keep your address updated.

wow, once again shafted by not being in the US!

what is wrong with you people?

i have several accounts with KI, being in Canada has left me out of several promos and have to wait for you to distribute cards to Canada, what is up with that?

do you only want US residents to play your family game?

i just dont understand why everyone else is left out?

surely emails to regular paying members in other countries could have been included, shiver me timbers again!

my grandchildren love all the extras, too bad we don't get them

Thanks for the response.
Too bad they apparently clear information on file without any notification, i've lived in the same place for 17 years, my info hasnt changed, wonder why they cleared it? oh well. Thanks again.

One-Eyed Jack, I must have spent over 200+ Dollars in GAME cards with wizard101. I never used my credit card to buy anything in wizard101. HOWEVER, before the week head start began, I bought a Gandry bundle WITH my credit card and my Shipping info was in the purchase.

Will I still get this promotion since I bought the Gandry bundle with my credit card? Thanks!

Perhaps put it in the crown shop or future packs for pirate101 ?

I think I have one use left on my code. I'm happy to share it with someone, but I don't want to post it publicly in case someone snags it. If you have any ideas, let me know.

One thing I noticed when redeeming my gift in game. I originally opened the gift window while on my Level 27 Swashbuckler and saw that the gift was a Level 28 companion. Instead of redeeming it then, I thought "Hey, wait. I can redeem this on my new Buccaneer character instead." So I went to my other character and opened the gift window and saw the same gift, Level 28 companion and clicked redeem. Then the window popped up saying congrats on you new Level 3 companion.

Alright, I get that new companions join your crew at or near the same level as your character, but the only reason I clicked redeem in this instance was because it said I was getting a Level 28 companion. You may want to check into this situation so that other people out there don't think the same way only to be really disappointed.

Yes, I did.

I actually won one from a contest hosted by some of the members on a fansite.

I suggest others try do the same. This week a lot of people seem to have got their map, and many people are being kind & giving away codes.

Question, does Pirate101 memberships count? The reason I ask this is because I've been playing Wizard101 with a Pre-Paid membership all this time. And, I only managed to get an online membership from Pirate101.

Well, just from a timing perspective . . . if your address wasn't on file when the address list for the map was compiled over a month ago (I don't have information on the specific day or anything like that), then you won't get the map.
