  1. Already on year two, loving this game (albeit the energy system is kind of annoying) it’s going great. Only problem is the only real antagonists seem to be in Sytherin, it would be interesting to have an enemy in another house.

  2. I’ve got a problem with my prefect. I’ve made 200+ points for my house and she’s still judgmental when I lose a few. SHES NOT EVEN ON THE LEADERBOARD meaning she’s lost more than 12 points. What kind of prefect even is she

  3. The feeling of getting 100 gems “for being a part of the launch” and then losing it all after spending them all on learning how to trim a broom tail…..

  4. I’m playing on android and iPad, in general I can’t afford to be buying gems for the game so it’s really frustrating the fact I can’t buy gems and that energy takes so long to come. I often run out of energy in the middle of a class and I hate it
