"Dude, where's my car--ds?"
A player from the U.S. messaged me on Twitter last night saying that they went to their local Toys"R"Us and was told that they did not have our card game or mod packs. So, I googled the store at his location and called it up on the phone! Shockingly, they told me it was not in the system. O_O But I know for a fact that EVERY Toys"R"Us in the states now has our card games. So I asked them to go to the area with the Pokemon and Baseball cards. Sure enough... there were 3 card games and 11 mod packs were there. Weird! So, if you are looking for the cards, head to the baseball card isle. Some players have told me that in some stores, the game is up near the cashiers, too.
Oh... and the 2012 Calendar is now starting to appear in Toys"R"Us stores across the U.S., too. There is very limited supply... possibly only 3 to 5 per store! (It will be in the card game section, too!)
What if I live outside of the U.S.?
The card game and mod packs are available now and shipping anywhere in the world at www.HeroMart.com . (We are working on getting in international locations, but it will be a year at least - so HeroMart is your best option right now!)

Evolved Shaman, UndeadSlayer, Vordred Boss Fight
As I write this post, it is 1:30am EST in the morning. Samba and Nulgath are still animating the insane number of cutscenes coming in tonight's Vordred Boss Fight. (We appreciate what you are doing so much! Go guys go!) This is going to be unlike the end of any other zone so far... and it is REALLY difficult not to talk about it until you had a chance to play it. Ghost even wrote a new song for it!
But we can show you a preview! (Bad Artix, bad! - Alina)
We also have two classes being released. The one I am most excited about is Undead Slayer. It is a decent class against normal monsters... and AN UNIMAGINABLE WRECKING BALL OF DESTRUCTION against undead monsters. It also has a heal. Cysero does not like it because there is no real strategy to the class. On the other hand, I love it because it is exactly the way I enjoy playing. (That and I one shotted Noxus with a 15K Spirit Dragon Lance)
I have not seen Evolved Shaman yet, but it looks interesting too. Dage is working on the art for both of these classes. He had to prepare for a severe weather up North - but he said he should have them tomorrow morning.
Also, it is possible to get the 2nd piece of the Blinding Light of Destiny in tonights release... if you can get the Ultra-Good ending. Good luck everyone... tonight we BATTLE VORDRED!
Card Game MOD PACKS!
Toys"R"Us was really surprised that a small indie game company like us would have so many people to visit their stores for our card game. Thank you for making us look so good! (We were wondering if anyone remembered that I promised to write the DoomWood saga as a thank you to all the players who did.)
The AQWorlds CardGame has been an ongoing success and Toys"R"Us asked if we would create something to keep the card game fresh and lively with the holiday season coming up. We thought about it hard... because we promised that this was not one of those games where you had to buy endless foil wrapped mystery packs at some change of getting rares cards. We were not making that up!
So we came up with something completely new - a MOD PACK. Imagine if you took all the best cards you were hunting for from booster and expansion packs and put them all into a single pack which was a one-time purchase (just like the original game). We built two of them: DoomWood and ChaosLord. Each pack comes with a lot of awesome new themed cards ... including some rule twisting special cards. Simply mix them into your deck and make the game even more fun.
Both the DoomWood and ChaosLord mod packs are a one-time only purchase and will come with bonus in-game items which will be announced closer to the release date... which should be in October!
