Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days


webkinz cheatsEarlier today Ganz posted the following statements on Webkinz World's Twitter account:
 
  • "The Soccer Challenge will be a daily event until the end of the World Cup. Then it will go into our pool of Daily Activities to use."
  • "The [Woolly] Mammoth issue has now been resolved. Note that the eStore Mammoth will now be known as the "Prehistoric Mammoth"."
  • "The next Super School day is June 30th."
 
The World Cup Soccer event only happens once every four years.  Now we know that we won't have to wait that long for the Soccer Challenge to return.  Many players had been wondering what was going to happen to the eStore Mammoth with the scheduled release of a plushie Mammoth in August.  It now appears that they will be two separate pets.  And, it has been a while since we had a "Super School Day" at the Kinzville Academy, during which players could get "extra credit" for classes taken.  To get the best deal for your tuition dollars, make sure to take your pets to the Academy on June 30th.

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

Yes! I am so excited! No more issues!
Aw. I will miss the soccer challenge.

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

so, about the soccer challenge, does that mean that on the 20th it will stop, and then be a speicail daily event like the prize claw?

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

Thanks for the info!
Seems counter-productive that because of the 'double pet' they are going back and changing the name of the eStore mammoth that people already have. Why wouldn't they have re-titled the new pet? Silly Ganz.

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

Thanks so much for letting us know! Of course that's the day we leave for vacation...I will have to get up very early to do the Academy classes.

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

sweet this rocks

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

The new Mammoth should've been named the Prehistoric Mammoth, it matches it more...

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

what does that mean . .. the soccer challenge will go into our pool of daily activities to use? Does that mean it will be retired ? Does that mean we can still play it?

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

It means (I think) That they will use it on the daily activites hourly or used all day like on Sat. or Sun.

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

Does that mean the the soccer is here to stay?? I love that game but the goalie is way to good!! LOL

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

Aw man, I think I'm leaving for vacay as well on the 30th... phooey!

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

Awwwwww ): I love the soccer game! I will make sure to keep an eye out for it now!!!

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

Oh good -- I am glad that we will still occasionally see the soccer game. I figured that was a lot of work (programming a new game, new items, etc.) for a short period of time, this makes sense! And now that I am actually getting goals it is even better!

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

That is awesome that hey are going to keep the soccer challenge around!!!
This way I don't have to stress so much about not getting everything before the end of the World Cup!!!

I really enjoy playing it, thank you Ganz!!!!

~peace~

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

That's kind of good news about the soccer challenge, at least it is not gone for good, but I wonder if it will be as random (and not very often) as the claw event is?
I read a previous post that said Ganz should have called the new mammoth Prehistoric Mammoth, just so's no-one would be confused - that would have been a great idea!!
Super School Days - hey I thought school was out!!!!! Poor pets still have to go, AND we make them do even more classes, what horrible people we are G-NA-HA-HA!!!! LOL

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

So for those of us not into soccer... When does the World Cup end? Is it a set date?

Nope, not silly at all. It was very logical.

The plushie Mammoth being manufactured right now must has tags already printed with "Woolly Mammoth". The estore pet had no tag, so needed no physical change.

I just checked on my ebkinz account and, even though this estore "Woolly Mammoth" was adopted about 5 months ago, it is now showing up as "Prehistoric".

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

I am so glad the soccer game will still be around! I really wanted the chance to be able to make a team of webkinz soccer players! Yay!!

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

Thanks so much for updating us on all these things. I have been so scared (well, worried) that the soccer challenge would completely disappear, and I really need extra credit at school. So great news today

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

Aww! all that work for something that will be retired soon wasted. because it is not being retired? GANZ!!!! Sigh, They better retire some of the beautiful game theme so I can collect something else besides the moon lamp and the webkinz dragster. I got like three or four of each of the theme ( Depending on what it is maybe more like the league of champs trophy).
P.S. Don't give up on the soccer challenge! It gets easier after you find what works! I won't tell what that is because you've got a lot of posts here saying it ;-).

Re: Ganz Tweets About Soccer Challenge, Woolly Mammoth, and Super School Days

I am so glad the soccer game will still be around, I am getting good at it. I just wish we got the pink soccer clothing that the goalie is wearing
