February Custom Weapon Winner
"Wait... what just happened?" you ask? I'll tell you! We've been planning a fun surprise for heroes who upgrade in AQWorlds and managed to keep it a secret! This morning, we gathered up a list of everyone who bought an upgrade in February -- both AdventureCoins and Memberships -- and chose one lucky person from among them to win a custom weapon. That winner is... Zay_M8!
We had big plans to put together a video letting him know, and posting it on the Design Notes, but when I went to check out his account, I saw he was online. It is always more fun to give people good news "in person," so I hopped on and talked with him then and there.
After being pretty surprised, he got down to business, and described his new custom weapon... and told me the name of two friends he'd like to share his prize with.
One of the AQW artists will build that blade on Monday, and Zay_M8 and his friends will get it with Friday's release!
Will You Do This Again?
Good question! Short answer, yes! During the first week of April, we'll choose one person from among a list of people who upgrade in March to get their very own custom weapon (with the option of sharing it with up to 10 friends). Keep an eye on the Design Notes to see if this fun surprise will continue after that!
Some of you are asking: "why didn't you announce this before?" Answer: because it's more fun to announce new ways to get rewards when we already have the name of the first winner.
I love happy surprises where you guys get cool stuff! SURPRISE!
