Dage vs Nulgath

Hi everyone! Quickie Design Notes today, perfect for a bite-sized snack! This week in HeroSmash, we stocked the Freedom Day with some brand new items! Get them while you can, since the Freedom Day shop will only be available until July 13, when it will be replaced with Zazul and the Friday the 13th shop! Last time, we announced that the new Battle Poll would be commemorating a special event: AQW’s Dage vs. Nulgath war! Two weapons representing these masters of Evil go in, only one comes out... and it’s all up to you!Happy Smashing!

F13 Item Sneak Peek, and more Battle Polls info

Hey power people. I know, I can't just start off with a header like that, and not deliver, so I'll just jump to the good stuff. 

Pretty sick, huh? If things go the way i have labeled them, expect lots of rares! However - I tend to over-rare, and then things get medium well, and then you have a steak sandwich. So we'll see how things go.

There has been a lot of questions as to Battle Polls. Here is some more info on those. With all these wars between good and evil we have it lead me to realize one thing. EVIL WILL ALWAYS WIN. It's not a bad thing. And it certainly doesn't mean that the good guys don't try. They put up a crazy fight. But Super Death and I have noticed that when we oversee all these wars the villains always end up on top. So it got me thinking... How can we still pit player against player in epic wars that are still fun, and always find a way to make it fun, while giving everyone a chance? Zoinks! Thats a big question. Well I came up with one good idea. Battle Polls. Take any two things. Dogs vs Cats, Action vs Comedy, Sprinkles vs Chocolate Chipe, or maybe even the epic choice - Pirates vs Ninja. Which is the best? That's where you come in. You decide who wins by turning in PvP war tokens. The choice is yours when the lines are drawn. Win a winner emerges, an item will appear in the Battle Poll shop that is inspired by what you were fighting for. Now we can always have epic wars, and the outsome will always be unkoown! Man this is going to be fun. Expect the first Battle Poll in the next couple of weeks or so (sporatic release schedule, remember). If you have any ideasfor what the first Battle Poll should be let me know on Twitter with a #BattlePolls tag on it!

A familiar face is one the horizon - A new idea is brewing

Hey Power People,

In the distance I can hear the familiar sound of the calliope, and creepy clown laughter. That's right, Friday the 13th is on the horizon, and that means the return of Zazul's Cirque du Muerte! Time to geat your freak on!

A New Idea???

Two words for you. Battle Polls. I can't say much, cause it's kinda hush hush right now. But hey, when I have I ever done what I was supposed to?

Come one; come all to Zazul’s Cirque du Muerte!  ( /join Fairgrounds or click on the button in your HALdroid Mentor's news )

The Cirque that will put a smile on your face… or else.  My children of the night, my players of misfortune, play in my carnival of melancholy madness. Straight from the farthest reaches of the world – I give you the best oddities you will find anywhere.  This event includes 3 new items which will go totally rare and NEVER return once the Cirque du Muerte leaves town:  Twisted armor, Teddy Cutskin axe, and the MonkeyBack item! 

We have the Carnivorous Clowns of Killdarro. Do you have what it takes to defeat them all, and still keep all your limbs? Test your might against the Alligator Man of Alldinguo. Labor laws state that I must feed him every day, but between you and me, I don’t, and boy is he hungry! Will you be his next meal? Enjoy my Cirque of Insanity. I brings my finest Armors, Weapons, and Items to all those daring enough to wield my wicked wares. Let us play with your fears. Play while you can my pets, my Cirque du Muerte won’t last for long.

Jemini, Thyton, Dumoose, Randor the Red, Polistar, and Ichidori are my heroes this week. They made some AMAZING items, armors. Dumoose gets a big hug - as well as Llusion for doing the magic that they do an the maps to make them special. Play on everyone. Enjoy our very first Friday the 13th event. It's the only one this year too.

Friday the 13th Will Be A Celebration You Won't Forget

Greeting power people!  Time is ticking down and I thought I would give you a sneak peek at what is planned for our HeroSmash Friday the 13th release. I give you Zazul and his Cirque du Muerte!

On the night of Thursday the 12th an eerie fog forms around Celebration Fair. When the people of Super City awake, there is Zazul and his creepy carnival of freaks and shrieks. Will you have what it takes to outlast the Carnivorous Clowns of Killdarro? Are you strong enough to take on the Alligator Man of Alldinguo? Zazul will be selling his finest carnival weapons and armors for all those who are brave enough.

Zazul and his morbid minions will be blowing in this Friday, but they won’t be there for long, and there is only one this year.
