Spring Holiday Art Contest Winners Shine
Your imagination went into OVERDRIVE!
You guys really ARE proof that the pencil is mightier than the sword! In numbers, if nothing else. There were 1100+ entries in the Spring Holiday Art Contest, and we think every-bunny did an eggstra-special job!
We had epicly-painted eggs, a live-action cardboard armor for Earth Day, and more frenzied Grenwogs than sakura blossoms on a cherry tree! See all of the winning entries on our Contest Winners page!
Congratulations to Grand Prize winner Ryzhou for his breathtaking image celebrating MechQuest and Chinese New Year!
We hope that all the winners will bask in the punshine of their victories! Thank you to everyone who entered; your boundless creativity continues to astonish us, and we can't wait for the next contest! What theme do YOU think it should have? Tell us on the forum!
1 versus 1 PvP Combat Coming Friday!
It's been a long-requested feature in AQW, A proper way to face your friends in combat one on one. Due to some technical difficulties it's been possible but very taxing on the servers. Thanks to some hard work from the AQW coding team (Minimal & Yorumi) we will be able to offer a very bare bones 1v1 PvP staring this Friday.
bare bones means that it will be basic functionality. You will be able to use /join (like back in the old days) to meet a friend (or foe) in single combat. We are working on a notification systen so you can issue a challenge to anyone anywhere in the game, they can click accept and be transported into the Doomwood Arena with you. That is for the future.
We are also working on 1v1 daily quests that can earn you some all new PvP gear from Dummose. This may or may not make it to the release Friday.
Remember, some classes that are good for fighting monsters are not so great at PvP. Level and Enhancements make a BIG difference in the arena, but mostly it comes down to skill. How well do you know YOUR classes?
It's time to prove yourself.
