Final Round!

The last round of the I Can Has Mod contest has begun! Speak to Cleric Joy in Battleon to obtain the Last Deluxe Cheezburger. Remember, you get +1 extra chance for every month left on you membership, along with every AEXtra you complete.

The drawing will be held on the March 30th, so get in there now! Inether extremely lucky chance that you win, make sure that the e-mail attached to your account is active and working.

Here are the recently updated contest rules:

#1: Unknown

#2: In the event that a wish will break fundamental game play, upset a player or group of players, or in any way result in problems or complications for the staff or game… a Genie Lawyer will be summoned from the forbidden plane of litigious wishes. If the wish was made with good intentions, the Genie will begin to negotiate a wish that will benefit the wish maker. If the wish was made out of spite, hate, greed or bad intentions, the Genie is allowed to use their powers of “wish legalese” to re-interpret the wish. If the genie is “unclear” on a certain part of the wish… even if it makes perfect sense to everyone else, the Genie is allowed to ask random players online questions and replace parts of the original wish with their answer.

#3: Any wish for an item will turn ALL Golden Cheezburgers in the game into the item that was wished for.

#4: Unknown

#5: If a wish is made for something that does not exist, it will be created as long as it is original. If it is a selfless wish, it will be created with love and care. If it is a greedy or hurtful wish, another randomly selected player will be chosen to make a counter wish, which may produce unexpected and unfortunately results upon the original wisher.

#6: Unknown

#7: Unknown

#8: Unknown

#9: Any wish that requires a lot of coding and might break the AQW programming team or make said team cry (i.e. Class, Entire Zone, All New Functionality) can only be wished for once per calendar year. Once that item has been wished for another items in this category cannot be wished for again until one year from the granting of the previous wish as elapsed.

#10: Unknown, and oh man, this one is 100% insane. Please never unlock it.

The unknown rules can only be unlocked by a wish that breaks that certain rule.

You’re probably wondering why this contest is getting shut down. The previous wish was welcomed with an overwhelming amount of complaints by the AE community. Additionally, it is a waste of time & resources for the AE team which could go into making more awesome stuff.

Hopefully, this contest will return in another way, shape or form. Meanwhile, congratulations to all the previous winners and thanks for wishing some awesome wishes!

Your Thoughts?

Let the AE team know what you thought of last week’s crazy event! Did you like it?

 

USB Couch

Specs at HeroMart.com

Artix Entertainment have made a plan of epic proportions to stop EbilCorp! At some point in time, EbilCorp will make a dropoff. Fingers crossed it is the 3D Computer Couch which contains all essential data. So as a result of this… AE is initiating: STOP SOFA! ( #StopSofa )

In the event that the couch is retrieved, AE will be able to announce the pre-registration sign up date so players can reserve their usernames. A great idea was to follow a Ninja picking the item back to the lab, but should they get the files all the way back to their lab, we could lose all hope of retrieving it. We have reason to believe EbilCorp spends all of it’s budget on Defense & Security Systems. So prepare for battle, my fellow players, for we shall reclaim what is ours! BATTLE ON!

How you can help*:

- Carefully watch EbilCorp.com for clues
- Spy on Chairman Platinum’s FaceBook Page (As Sun Tsu wrote in his book, The Art of War, “know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles;” In other-words, hit the like button and watch his posts. From what we gathered, he is too boastful to not give away something that will help us recover the missing AQ3D files. Once we get them back… we can announce the date of Pre-Registration.
- If you are going in undercover… let me know by posting me a message on my Artix Twitter account and put #AQ3D at the end of it.

 

 

 

Final Call

The hammer has fallen – the Akiba New Year’s shop & Friday the 13th Event Rare shop have gone rare! With the shops, have gone all seasonal New Year items, including the non member AC pet.

Blinding Light of Destiny

So They Might Be Giants performed on the Conan O’Brian show. And you’re thinking, what does this have to do with AQW?.  Well, a short time during/after a show, server traffic on AQWorlds skyrocketed. Cool right?

Well, that’s it from this DN Yyeah…the post was lacking in size)

*Incoming message...*

Greetings fellow readers, I am Extreme speed from the planet Earth. If you’re here to complain about the lack of people-eating hamburgers on Earth, then please leave me a message. Otherwise, onto the message that the Pony Mastermind Al Gilman has forced me to write.

I was introduced to Adventure Quest about 5-6 years ago, when I saw my cousin fighting underwater mermaids. Who doesn’t love them? So eventually I signed up for it and joined the AE community. I joined AQWorlds when it was in Beta in October 2008. I soon discovered AQWorldsWiki at an unknown date. I happened to sign up for the wiki at around the same time SysOp applications were open. So, thinking of some good reasons to convince Al* as to why I should be considered as a SysOp, I applied. Hence, I am now SysOp/moderator of multiple wikis including HeroSmash Wiki, AQWorlds Wiki & LoreForum.

If you have come to this post looking for constant DC/Marvel refereces or bad jokes/puns , I’m sorry to have disappointed you. BUT, I can lead you in the right direction.
Also, here’s someone who you can go to to get sniped constantly in Halo, or who enjoys burning photos of infamous celebrities.
