Battle Wedding: A Love Story
Friday: Lord of the Wedding Ring In-Game Event!
Every young video game creator dreams about his wedding, and Artix's creator, Adam Bohn, was no different. You know, something traditional. White flowers… musical preludes… and the onslaught of armored groomsmen, swordfights, ninjas, Iron Man, Batman, WWE’s Jimmy Hart, and evil bellhops all taking place during the middle of the very organized, formal ceremony.
Organized? Formal? Not THIS Battle Wedding!
Our servers can hold over 50,000 players online at once, but the hotel where Adam and his bride, Michelle, got married is just NOT equipped to do that... So we decided to recreate the wedding in-game! (With some twists and additions that are most definitely not legal in Florida. Like dungeons. Possibly zombies. MAYBE some cross-dimensional traveling...)
This Friday, in-game Battle Wedding event arrives... and it's NEVER leaving! Expect to find:
- True love
- Traps, pitfalls, and pratfalls
- a Rares Shop
- EXTREME BATTLES
- and the unexpected!
A permanent merge shop will also release for those who battle through the event in the future! (And because the Glacial Warlord package released this week, we are able to make the majority of the rewards for Legends and free players!)
Lord of the Wedding Ring: Expect the Unexpected!
The groom and his groomsmen, all clad in armor-plated suits, ushered close friends and family to their seats. Even Adam’s battle Pomeranian, Daimyo, was dressed in a tuxedo for the magical occasion. The wedding ceremony was beautiful … until the Catholic priest said: “Should anyone have reason why these two should not be joined in holy matrimony, speak now or forever hold your peace…”
Suddenly... the BATTLE portion of this most-unconventional wedding began! It wouldn't be a Friday the 13th event if SOMETHING unexpected didn't happen!
If the previous in-game weddings in AdventureQuest Worlds imitate life, and Adam’s real-life wedding was imitating Artix games, then this is a prime example of “life imitating art imitating life.” And YOU are going to have to make sure the ending of THIS wedding ends in victory: with the bride and groom becoming man and wife! (As the Hero, that's your job. And we KNOW you are up to the challenge!)
