Let’s Get Rid Of J6!

At least for a while. The Metro news group and SXC (Space Expedition Curacao) are currently running a contest and the winner will win a trip to SPACE!

We all want to send J6 where he belongs and if they let him bring a pencil we’ve asked him to do a drawing for us while he’s up there. He would be the first video game developer to go into space and when he gets back we could give everyone this item!

We’re asking EVERYONE to help and it’s really easy.

1.Click on THIS LINK.
2.Click the little VOTE BUTTON that looks like this.

 

That’s it! Right now it appears that he is in 2nd place (you can check how well “Send J6 Where He Belongs” is going right HERE). Feel free to post this on your FaceBook and Twitter and tell everyone that you know.

I want to emphasize that this is NOT an in-game event. If we pull this off, it will happen IN REAL LIFE! The actual Lead Artist for AQW will be actually going into actual space! Continue Reading →

A letter from Eric Greydawn:

Baron Au’Mydas has had plenty of time to think.  Two years it’s been since he and that golden kiss of his assaulted Falconreach.  He’s had a lot of thoughts between then and now, many of them involving what to do if he manages to get his power back.  Unfortunately, there’s a mischief maker out there who thinks it would be fun to see Au’Mydas have his power back.

 

Coming this Friday, Baron Au’Mydas returns with his Golden Horde to see if this time he can’t be more successful.

 

I read the forum threads on Lucky Week, and you guys have a LOT of ideas you would like to see in game.  Sadly we can’t pick up on all the suggestions you put forward.  I had an idea already cooking in my brain, and your suggestions helped cement that idea with a bit of a change in the lineup that I hadn’t originally intended.  Dracelix is also working on some house items for you, based on your suggestions on the forum!

 

Happy Lucky Week, and BattleOn!

With EpicDuel’s continuous growth, it needs a few more people on its moderating team. (Someone to pick up my slack would be nice!)

Nightwraith has put out this message:

Want to be a mod? Want to spend hours a day not getting paid while helping your fellow players, catching cheaters, hackers, scammers and muting people who use abusive language?

 

If you answered YES to either of these questions, then you should probably check yourself into the nearest psychiatric hospital as soon as you can, but I also have exciting news for you.

 

We are looking for new mods / testers for EpicDuel, and now is your chance to apply! One thing we needs to stress - you MUST be over 18 year old. If you are under 18, if you don’t include your age, or if you start with “I’m not 18 yet, but…” the application will not be considered.

 

What they need you to included in your email is:

1. Your real name, age, and country of residence.

2. EpicDuel Game account name and email address

3. Forum account name and email address if one is entered. (not required to have one)

4. Languages you speak/read

5. C.V. (Resume) *please note we’d like the CV in English.

 

Please send your COMPLETE application tobeamod@battleon.com . If the application is not complete, we will toss it out. And please – one application per person.

 

We will read all the applications. If you are chosen to go through a further interview, we will contact you. Unfortunately, they cannot reply to everyone. If you do not hear from us, sorry.

Good luck to everyone that applies. I look forward to working with you!

EpicDuel’s latest Design Notes comes with scores of information on the upcoming release.

The Bionic Battalion

The bunnies have escaped from the Biological Preserve, but not every rabbit is a dumb bunny. Several of the rabbits have achieved sentience, and need your help to achieve their plans. These adorable creatures are not seeking world domination, destruction, or greatness- merely answers.

The first rabbit you’ll meet is Brachylagus, the Lagomorph Captain. The first of the rabbits to realize sentience, he is the driving force behind this ragtag group of superintelligent space rabbits. After determining to find others like himself, he was able to find several clever individuals: his lieutenant Myxoma, the strong and loyal Capensis, the gentle Lepus, and the genius Mr. Cottontail.

Brachylagus can be found in Central Station, but you’ll have to search all over Delta V for the other four, as they were separated when all of the rabbits escaped.’

Shamrocks from Heaven!

There’s now so much green on Delta V, that it’s reached critical levels! For a limited time, Emeralds will drop from PvP battles. They will come in varying quality and they can be redeemed at any vendor for mega loot!

Lower Level Love!

With RabbleFroth’s help, the EpicDuel experience curve is being revamped.! The new curve will rise in experience required to level much smoother across the middle levels of EpicDuel. This will help keep players from hitting a “wall” of experience at level 25 and the leveling experience more enjoyable for everyone.

Experience Curve
The new experience curve.

Weapons are also being restated to provide a more consistent increase in stats, damage and price across all levels. While high level weapons have followed a steady power progression, low level weapons have not. The majority of them will be re-balanced in the coming weeks.

Mercenaries are also receiving a buff in the form of a new passive. This passive will come to replace Blood Shield, which remains a very underused skill by Mercenaries.

Upgrades!

Behind the scenes, Titan has continued to work on squashing the very last of the bugs that made through the release. He’s also working on transitioning EpicDuel from CS3 to CS5, which could help alleviate much of the in-game lag! This is a long process spanning the coming weeks, but it should offer big improvements to EpicDuel and open up even more possibilities for development!

Gameplay Tips

Instead of the “Power Up” button encouraging you to buy Varium every time you lose, you’ll now see a slew of tips and tricks that’ll help you get out of your losing streak!

For this year’s Lucky Week, we will be introducing a new story from Eric Greydawn, which will include a mini-war! Of course, you will also be able to play through all previous years’ releases for Lucky Week.

Alexander

Last week, Brump was given the ability to train Alexander’s stats, and this week you will be able to untrain them!

Everyone Can Use A Little More Luck!

  • Just a quick Design Notes to let you know what we’re working on this week for both the mid-week and the big Friday release.

Back To Dwarfhold!

  • This Wednesday, you will get the chance to help open the Dwarven Market up.
  • No deep and dangerous plots this week. Sometimes a hero just needs to take care of business to either help the people out of a jam or serve their own needs.
  • You will be able to re-open a weapon shop, a dwarven armorer and a hair shop.
  • As always, the mid-week and all of the shops and items unlocked are for AQW Members Only!

Friday: LUCKY DAY!

  • It’s almost Lucky Day again and that means that the Shamrock Fair is coming to town!
  • A  brand new fair game.
  • Will  be adding one or two AC Rares as well for this year only.
  • We are also working on the long awaited Evolved Leprechaun Class it will be for everyone.  This class will be a SEASONAL RARE, it will return every Lucky Day.

THREE ways to get the class:

  1. You will be able to purchase the class for ACs from Mog O’Rahilly in the Shamrock Fair or from Itzachi in Battleon, but only until the Shamrock Fair closes.
  2. You will be able to EARN it with a combination of Golden Tickets earned from Fair games and some farming quests which Mog O’Rahilly will give you. It won’t be easy but if you’re dedicated then you will be able to earn the class before the Fair closes.
  3. If you already have the original Leprechaun class from back in 2009, you will be able to earn it much faster using special quests designed just for you long time players, rare collectors and class fans. Don’t worry, the original will only unlock these easier farming quests for you… you will NOT have to trade in your original Leppy.
