It's time to /SAMBA!
Don't stop till you groove enough!
Howdy hey players, the time has finally come! The /Dance Evolution minigame is coming tonight to play at my disco in the troll village of Bloodtusk Ravine. Now in an Ordinary World, you’d have to spend YEARS to achieve amazing samba skills, but here in AQW, you just have to tap your foot and match some arrows to unlock the /samba dancing emote. So get busy like a Bumble Bee and dance to the MAX!
Now you’ll notice a lovely blond troll dancing with me. This is actually one of my best friends from real life, Tango. In high school, many, many, MANY weekends were spent stomping on arrows, snarfing down sushi and then settling in for a Cowboy Bebop sleepover marathon. So it’s only appropriate that Tango and I are dancing side by side in a game that we cared so much about and that helped make our friendship that much groovier.
Sadly, life isn’t always BRILLIANT 2U. Last month, Tango was struck by a drunk driver and has been hospitalized ever since with extensive damage. But, being the MIRACLE that she is Tango pulled through a 2 week coma, and is now stable. As Days Go By she is regaining more and more mobility, memory and cheer.
This weekend Tango got to leave the hospital and to welcome her home, I’m very happy to introduce her to you, Heroes. No more shall we be Dancing All Alone!
Please keep Tango in your thoughts as you adventure. The road to recovery will be a Long Train Runnin’. And if you ever, ever, EVER are in the situation where someone is about to drive drunk, Make A Difference and blow the Whistle Song! Report them to a responsible adult and you may very well be saving a life!
So here’s the BRE∀K DOWN! of the update to my disco:
- /Dance Evolution minigame!
- Winning unlocks the /samba emote!
- 4 female versions of Tango’s hairstyle and 2 male versions in Samba’s shop w/ CC stripe!
- New quest, "Tango! Tango! Tango!" with Tango’s red, silver and black dancing armor reward!
