I’m playing Hogwarts Mystery again, and I’ve just started on quidditch, which must have become an option somewhere in between the time I stopped playing and started again. As I said in the heading, I have so many questions.
- Skye Parkin. I take it she, like Rowan, is automatically in the same house as the player? One problem with that: I’m a Ravenclaw, and Skye – who rips pages out of books and is about to get kicked off the team if her grades don’t improve – is one of the least Ravenclaw characters in the game.
- Speaking of Ravenclaw, I’ve noticed that in the “friendly” games, it’s Ravenclaw vs. Ravenclaw. As in, I’m trying to score a goal and the commentator is talking about how it’s going to be hard to get past the Ravenclaw keeper. Is that because it’s just practice, or because the game forgets what house you’re in?
- Why is Charlie Weasley not involved in the Quidditch story? He’s the Gryffindor Seeker, right? Out of all my character’s friends, he’s the one I can most easily imagine convincing me to go to a Quidditch game and getting me interested in the sport.
- Why are we acting like my character has never been on a broom before? She may not be an experienced Quidditch player, but she’s been taking flying lessons for 4 1/2 years! I also find it hard to believe that she’s in her fifth year at Hogwarts and has a friend who’s on the Gryffindor team, but has never attended a Quidditch match before.
- Even though she’s a Hufflepuff, Penny is supporting Ravenclaw in the first match because she’s a fan of a professional Quidditch team that Skye Parkin’s family is involved with. Okay, great. Why do both she and my character make such a big deal about that, as if she’s rooting against her own house team, when the match is between Ravenclaw and Slytherin? Luna Lovegood once wore a massive lion hat to a Gryffindor vs. Slytherin game. Lots of students probably show up to support their friends’ or siblings’ teams when their own isn’t playing.
