AE's 10th Anniversary Event!

Posted by on 163 comments

The biggest event in our gaming history

When did you first start playing AE games? How long have you been playing? How is it possible that we will have been creating weekly releases together for 10 years next week? 10 YEARS!?!?!? We need to do something special. Not just special, we need to do something bigger and crazier than we have ever tried before. We need to do a new "1st!" So join us next week, on Friday, October 12th @ 6pm EST for a special event that will span ALL 6 of our major games!

The biggest event in the history of our game network!

We only have a week and a few days before the 10th Anniversary event... and while we are super excited, we have so much to do! Building an event that will span AQWorlds, EpicDuel, DragonFable, MechQuest, HeroSmash and the original AdventureQuest is no small task! Also, from a plot point of view, it is pretty tricky since all of the games take place in different time periods and with different sets of characters. As always, if you have ideas for cool monsters that can span the games, please let us know on Twitter, Facebook and the Forums! Oh wait... or you can post below!

You know, it is all because of you guys that the games are here. 10 years is a huge reason to celebrate. Especially when you glance at the giant graveyard of game companies that did came and went during that time.

  • Rolith & Alina's wedding (AQWorlds Special Event, Oct 19th)
    (Two of AE's beloved team members fell in love, became engaged, and are getting married!)
  • Special One-Eyed Doll music video premiere & Artix themed CD release!
    (The CD has officially been titled, "...something about a Dragon!?")
  • HeroMart will release the 2013 Calendar & 10th Anniversary shirt
  • EpicDuel's 3rd Anniversary with us!
  • AdventureQuest World's 4th Birthday

Gilgamash
Gilgamash: I first started playing AE games back in 2003.
My first game was AdventureQuest.
I love the game sooo much that I got an upgrade for my birthday the year after.
I still go on and off to play it.
And for my favorite game by you guys ummmm tough pick
I have to list my top 3 not in any order of these though
1:Aqworlds
2.DragonFable
3.Oversoul
Although Oversoul is a new game for you guys, I think it adds a new aspect for AE.
Thanks for making such AWESOME games for me over the pass 9 years.
I hope to see more games come and more awesome releases.

Gofist: I started with AE on December 10, 2010 and Aqw was my first game. I can't believe that it's gonna be almost two years for me with you guys and the games are still great. I still can't believe Aq classic started almost 10 years from today. I just hope I get member ship for Aqw in time so I can be a Upholder again. >:D

rysox: I started playing Adventure Quest Classic back in summer of 2005 and then I signed up for the Dragon Fable beta. Been playing every single game since and I can't believe how far these games have come. My favorite game is DragonFable because it has a great storyline and great gameplay even though I think most people would say AQW.

sournote103: Gosh... I don't even remember exactly when I started playing AE games... It must have been at least 5 or 7 years ago...
Well, I know that Mechquest and AQworlds didn't yet exist when I started playing, so that should be some context.

1234567889: I started playing around December 15th-25th 2007. Dunno why I remember it so well. :P First game was Dragonfable. It's sad I missed out on Alpha/beta in AQW cause I was so addicted to DF. And my favorite would have to be AQW by far.

The Jop: I started playing in 2004, so my first game was AdventureQuest. I can't choose my favorite AE game, that's like choosing my favorite child. Artix of all people should understand that. Anyway, I'm really excited. I know what you guys can do, and when you're working together across all the games I know it's going to be amazing.

Congratulations on 10 years, Artix, Kiara, and any AE staff member that reads this!

Whs123: First game was dragon fable about a year before AQW came out i think. Still love the art style, game play, and story of the game so it is still up there with my top games i have played. Keep up the great work in all your games and in future ones to come.

Mega Mike
Mega Mike: When did I start playing AE games? That was back in '09 if I remember right. First game I played? The original Adventure Quest, it was a lot of fun, but I would have to wait up to 2 hours to play it at times. So I switched to Dragonfable, best memory of that day? Staying up till 2 am, laughing my head off from all of the VERY well placed puns. Next I tried Mech Quest, it wasn't quite the same though, so then I tried what was at the time, the only other AE game to play, Adventure Quest Worlds. I made my character, I confirmed my account, and jumped head first into the game. I was a little confused at first, because it seemed like I was playing Dragonfable... but with the town from Adventure Quest, and MUCH more cartoony graphics in comparrison to Dragonfable, AND there were other people. I checked the homepage again and thought, OH! IT'S AN MMO!!! Now I'll be honest... I had never played an mmo and did not know what to expect. I turned out to be a great experience, and to this day I have NOT played a better mmo, and don't think I'm crazy but not even World of Warcraft seems as good. To this day my favorite game is still Dragonfable, and I'd like to say thankyou for the last 3 years I got to spend with you guys, it's been a great time and I'm looking forward to more goodtimes to come with AQ3D!!!

100Rob123: I started playing in 2008. or '07 Don't really remember. My first game was DF. Man, the early times with the Wind Orb Saga. :D
After 2 years of intensive DF playing, I found the other games, and the blessed forums! From there, it's all history.

My fav would be DF. Because the art is so amazingly simple yet detailed and the story is so deep an debatable. Overall, it's a world that is very fun to be immersed in. I wish you AE the best and hope you continue developing games for a loooong time. :)


P.S: Hope to find you guys in the Con next year!

Saber: I started playing Dragonfable almost six years ago. I thought it was pretty cool and then I made accounts in Mechquest and AdventureQuest as well. I liked them but I hardly made in progress overall. Just less than a year after AdventureQuest World's released, I started playing it and became hooked. I became a member about two months after that and have been one for almost 3 years.

Aqua_Waterheart: I'm now playing AE games since the start of Dragonfable, so that would be like 7-8 years, I started playing Dragonfable together with a friend of me in the lower grades, we were directly hooked, we fought and fought and we reached the lvl cap very fast, and now I'm playing AQ, AQW and a little bit Dragonfable, just because I like them ALL!

Battleon!

Drakko
Drakko: Well dragons seem to span all the games in one way or another.


I started playing at 1/11/2006 7:17:00 PM when I first found AdventureQuest.

Back then I was super happy to find something to entertain myself that could run on a dial-up connection, and more importantly it had dragons in it.


Which one is my favorite? Well I play aqw more often because I can run around as a red draconian in a purple suit but if I was to pick a favorite it would be dragonfable.

Mainly because well I'm a dragon fanatic, just wish there was more to do with my dragon like maybe instead of the set skill set they have now maybe they can choose a class. Warrior class version for dragons, rouge, mage, ect. Or maybe be able to purchase and mix and match new skills to customize how my dragon fights?

Haven't really played dragonfable much but it is still my favorite.

Caleili Palquin
Caleili Palquin: Ha, first post! Well, I started playing Adventure Quest on... (checks date) July 8th 2005. I do pop in now and again but I'm largely invested in AQW now. Now my favourite... I really liked the storylines in AQ, at least up to the end of the Devourer saga which is when I really started to wander away. Mechquest was a nice change in pace to AQ and I like the baby dragon you raise in DF... Gah, I can't choose, they're all good! Oversoul looks interesting so far and I DID like HeroSmash before it turned into a giant pvp arena... Epicduel... to be honest I don't really think of it as an AE game, in the context that you didn't create it and I much prefer AE art styles. Eh, I'm rambling now so I'll shut up. :)

I remember refreshing the game on my study breaks to catch a free server slot on original AQ. AQ was just I was needed back then, a single player online browser RPG game.

Aaaaaand...
DragonFable FTW!!!

Dagger
Dagger: http://guardian.battleon.com/Build30/charview.asp?temp=371174

That is my oldest character, though I played a good while before. I remember your old art quite fondly, how the moglins made me think of gremlins, how I was expecting them to turn into ugly little goblin thingies when using a water attack on them haha. Remember spending a lot of time in chat talking with the various devs that are long gone from AE now. My first Mogloween where I thought the pumpkin carver was the best thing ever, running around in the avenger armor and sphinx sword, and four other wind weapons because it was my favorite at the time. Battleon changed so much since those days, for the better in most ways. Now to mention the good ol' slax axe. Probably the most epic thing ever in that game would have to be the Great Fire War, Carnax war came close to capturing that feeling, but didn't quite make it. DragonFable's release was pretty epic, was awe inspiring for me, and the story continues to get epic. Juggling the two releases each week between work and school. Sadly I didn't give mechquest a whole lot of love for that reason, though I'm a fan of Warlic. Which brings me to AQW, don't think I've had so much fun in beta since Star Wars Galaxy. Being able to slide onto buildings, do weird glitches, showing off the star sword as a badge of armor, and the Captain killing my poor character haha. You came a long way Artix, from a small lunch break game, should be quite proud of what you've accomplished. You have hundred of thousands of players playing your game from around the world, and to think it almost started out as something different. :P you'll have to show off those old sketches again. Keep up the good work, can't wait to give the new 3D game a whirl. If I could change anything, well, the only thing I'd change is something that didn't suck as much as flash haha. Congrats and good luck on future endeavors! I grew up with these games, wouldn't mind growing old and showing the kids the games.

Brendan
Brendan: first of all FIRST(gimme my cookie), second of all, i have been with ae since sometime 2006 or 2007, i think early 2007, march 2007(i just char paged my dragonfable) i am excited, i watched my bro play aq on the computer never remembering the name (kinda strange how i found dragonfable, i just searched my favorite game and favorite thing, but i put it thing game format, and found dragonfable, little did i know(i found out this after about a month) that my brother played the first game of the same company) i like dragonfable (chapter 1) storyline best of all, really creative, if i see one better, just awesomeness, but it would be hard, i'm one of the characters that doesn't just read the current design notes, i go back and read from the beginning, i'm an alpha tester in aqw, and hs, and ed(well, it was called gamma testing right or am i having a blonde moment.aqw is the funnest to play, i just think you could have stats to choose like in dragonfable and mechquest, and be able to change, like say you want to spec for farming class or solo class, but the games been out to long to do that without everyone freaking out(other than the pros, we would actually quite like it, but the other 97% of players, probably wouldn't like it) so please do something like that for aq3d, oh and make it different level weps, and have enhancements increase the power, not just update it with level, like have a gold increase for it, a enhance(that will give the most), and mem enhance, but don't make it the whole weapons stats just make it a bonus to it, make us have to earn higher level weapons and have a better economy and make gold actually worth something(unlike i n aqw, where it is undervalued completely)

(note:i think i probably could have had that second note changed into a 3rd or 4rth note by taking off pieces and making separate chapters... wow doing this is great practice for english class, too bad i'm too lazy to separate, i'll do it next time)

Naze UB
Naze UB: This is so awesome! First game I played was Adventure Quest in 2007-2008, but now i created a new
account wich is a guardian :) . After AQ I find DragonFable, one of the best RPG I played. After Mech Quest and EpicDuel(from epic duel entertaiment). In 2008 AQW was the best thing I ever heard, but i wasn't a guardian , dragonlord, or a starcapitain so i wasn't able to play with my character Anticus from 2009 (hacked, he was lvl 19/20) so i didn't give up and i created a new character named MONDARK he is 1st upholder and i'm very proud, but my favorite armor,class is Alpha Pirate. I love that classic design and i.m very sad cause i don't have it, but this means gaiming :). After AQW I played a lot of Epic Duel now from AE. After ED I finished BladeHaven,and i get de gnome. HeroSmash was good at beginning, but in bera I don't know what happend. And Pony VS Pony ... Is funny. And I want to finish with Oversol one of the best AE games (i have all characters) and AQ3D Legend of Lore the big AE project( i still want that inventory :)) ).
All this years I playd a lot of games but i feel sometjing special playing you're games Artix. Thank.you gor all BattleOn Games.

klouwkat: !Warning! Long and boring story ahead. You are allowed to skip to the next comment.

:) Finally figured out how to post a comment here. Took me about three months... I think I've been playing AE games for about 7 to 8 years now. I started with the classic AQ when I was 12 (back when the age limit was still 13). I didn't play it for a long time though. I got stuck in the maze of different story lines. After that I discovered dragonfable, at the time it wasn't much more than the sneevil fortres and the farm with seedspitters and gorillaphants. I guess I played that game for about 4 years. I started playing mechquest about a day after the Betá release, but got stuck in the game once again and returned to playing dragonfable until AQWorlds Betá release went live. After that I've also tried playing Hero Smash, but it didn't manage to interest me for too long. I guess I'm getting old :(
Anyway...

In general I really like your games, especially AQWorlds and dragonfable, but what I like most about AE games is the lively community and the various design notes. I honestly spend more time reading those than playing your games. I love the stories about the people from the various design teams, both the serious and the insanely silly ones. Keep up the good work! Oh, and congratulations with AE's 10th birthday. I hope to be able to enjoy your games and stories for many more years.

so far, my favourite is possibly aq classic. yes i am an oldie :D.
i mean, come on.. who doesn't like a WEREPYRE EVIl ASSASSIN DUAL WIELDING WITH A MASSIVE DECAPITATOR FIGHTING USING A HUGE SCYTHE AGAINST A INSANELY POWERFUL CARNAX AND ALONGSIDE A TINY DEMON WHILE USING AWESOME SKILLS AND SPELLS WHICH RIP THE GROUND UP! if anyone doesnt, theey are CRAZY!

BrianXCaster: I start playing Aq classic on 2008....Dragonfable 2010 ....Mechquest 2010
and AQworlds 2010
+Aq classic was my first played browser game played it was so epic and armors are very cool! I really like the classes even if half of it are for guardians!
+Dragonfable was the second game I played I really like the story and the dragons!!! Even though I killed thousands of dragons. My account is lvl 70+
so I got bored.!
+ I got the maximum lvl!....I liked MechQuest because of its attacks and the free players items are almost the same as the upgraded items but the upgrade items are much cooler!
+finally Aqworld I started playing this game as a pledged Good Hero but when I discovered Nulgath and Dage I got obsessed on their items... I have been completing offers for Dage .I liked Aqworlds since 2011 because the classes, items, quests, and more got doubled and became more Epic!


The game I really like is AQWorlds because it is connected to all other games like the chrono span it is connected to AQ , DF , MQ and there are new events or releases every week!And there are many cool items for Free players Like me!

Pokelord
Pokelord: Why not a evil temporal fiend who is defeated once in each of the games before hopping through a portal to the next?

Or some sort of time-traveling person. Possibly, he could arrive in all 6 at once - and then be defeated in each by the players?

One more idea would be to have something to do with space - at some point in all of the games there's a space adventure... So they could do something like that - maybe even combining my time fiend idea as well.

I hope you consider my ideas. I would've been more detailed, but these just popped into my head when I read the AQW DNs.

Zhing: Ah, that fateful day...
T'was a dark and stormy night/middle of the day. In the momentous month of July '09, I, Zhing who is also Twinckletoes, made my first (EVAR) online game account. It was an AQWorlds player account, back in the day before E-mail was required to sign up. Soon after that, I discovered DragonFable, and embarked upon a journey called "A Hero is Bored". Then I became a MechQuest fan, and even took a stab at AQ Classic and occasionally HeroSmash. An EpicDuel account was created; I became an avid fan of AE. I have defeated every Chaos Lord to date, and have almost completed DF Chapter Two, though I have already begun Chapter Three. I cannot decide which I enjoy more: the fast-paced, electricly addicting MMORPG AQWorlds, or the ever-punny, down-to-earth DragonFable. Depends on which suits my current mood.
I am soooo excited for Rolith + Alina!! They are (have been for a while) married in real life, right?
And the secret special release... psyche!! Thank you all for such awesome games!! Cannot wait for the next one!!

Tiamaat: Wow, ten years, seriously?! I've been enjoying your games since somewhere in the 90's when it was just AQ. Each time you came up with the next game I would migrate to playing the newest one. It's always interesting to see how each game develops. Then I go back to AQ (now Classic) and just wow! So many things have happened when I was playing the other games, lol! Oh, and for monsters that could span all the games, I'm thinking Frogzards (mecha frogzards would be wild!) and moglins (Zorbak and Kabroz especially). Oh, and dragons, can never have enough dragons (like skulls). I have no idea how you'll pull this one off, but somehow you always pull off the seemingly impossible. Battle On! And on and on!

JeffTechnoWiz: I hope the 10th Anniversary Quests For AQClassic shows What Lore WOULD of been like AKA the "first first" AQClassic game. And Show how AQClassic changed over the years. Let alone the few events that "saved" AQclassic AKA the Guardian Drives, The First Guardians. Because without AQClassic. There wouldn't be a DF,MQ,Ebil Games,AQW and so on. Also a monster that can span the games? O that easy Drakkath Slugworth and his family.

Belhunter
Belhunter: I was in grade five when I started to play adventure quest classic, it was a good game and I liked it. But when a friend showed me dragonfable I couldn't believe my eyes! I fell in love with it. I was so anamoured that I upgraded to dragon Lord, but it didn't stop there. awhile after mechquest came out i fell in love with it to, and sure enough a year later I upgraded. When I heard of your mmo aqw, I immediatly joined the alpha and was the most faithful alpha/beta-tester I could afford to be. There are some times when I am annoyed at what you guys do in your games, but I go back to that first love of Dragon fable and forget what was wrong.

Gjappy: Whow, when I did start playing AE games?

Hmm, in 2007 I think. I accidentally clicked an AQ add, tried the game and actually liked it, became Guardian a few months later.

Found out about AQW the same way, on accident. :P later on I played most of the AE games and made awesome friends.

And now I am comment moderator here, (yes, I just approved all posts below)time goes fast. Congrats with the anniversary Artix Entertainment!

My favourite game so far is AQWorlds, but I 'm very much exited about AQ3D.

Estrane: I started on May 4, 2004 with the original Adventure Quest and my favorite game would be Dragonfable with AQW taking second and AQ right behind it at third. I can certainly attest to the amazing quality of the games and always look forward to every release. Its been a crazy 8 years of watching the AE team grow from just AQ and a rather small team to what it has become today. I'm just glad I got to be apart of it all.

zantor36: I started about 8 1/2 years ago. I was one of the ones that clicked on an AQ ad and was sucked into the addictive world of AE games. So i started on AQ (Which i still play today) then moved to Dragonfable, which is my favorite. I've played all of the AE games to date, but i usually only play; Dragonfable, AQ, AQW, Oversoul(still in alpha) and sometimes PvP(pony vs pony) when i'm feeling like a funny little puzzle game.
Anyways, thanks for all the fun AE, happy anniversary!

ITS AWESOME!! I'm always amazed by the cool drawings in Aq and now also in Dragon Fable ^^
And Happy 10th anniversary!

Percy Jackson64: I never realized it at the time because I was like five when I started playing Adventure Quest but i vaguely remember Twilly, Artix, and Warlic in my past and then 2 years ago I saw the Adventure Quest Worlds adds on TV and decided to try the game. Shortly thereafter I recognized Twilly and Artix on sight and realized this game was made by the same company. Since then I have also taken on playing Dragon Fable but I have always liked and had the most attachment to Adventure Quest Worlds.

Those other gaming companies don't stand a chance, guys. They'll come to pass and enter the giant graveyard just like all the others.

P.S.S. Congratulate Warlic on composing all the amazing background music and theme songs over the years! His work doesn't go unnoticed.

StormComet: Well, coming up with monster ideas can be pretty tough, so if it's a last resort, you can bring back the Phone Box that appeared in Dragonfable. If the player messes up time somehow, Dr. When can return and bring back a couple of monsters to stop the hero from ever screwing up time again. Or it can be an accident and some Angels take control of the phone box ;)

But when AQWorlds came along, I was addicted to it 24/7, and so were my friends. I played it when I felt sad, and it's great community and great developers made me happy again. Now I still play AQWorlds, but I also play Dragonfable, OverSoul, and MechQuest. Artix, you and your team have changed the lives of all of your players and made their lives better in a way. Please continue your games, because us AE fans will always be waiting, cheering you on and playing your games.

BladeMaster: I've been playing AE games for solong, I don't even remember. IT started when I was about, oh, six? Or seven? I was watching my brother play (as I always did when I was a child, since I was bored) violent games xD He was playing Dragon Fable, and I thought his characters hair was pretty cool. So I planned on trying it myself. When I was about 7 (I knew how to fully operate and type fluently at that time), I made an account. I lost the account since I didnt remember when I was 10, and made a new one, which I still use today....sorta. Then my sister found out about AQW. That's my favorite game so far, and Im on EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Thank you AE for being there with me for all these years c:

Upgrade wise I've bought a Dragon Amulet for DF, X-Guardian for original AQ and membership for AQW and I have yet to get a Star Captain. I'm glad my friend showed me the game otherwise I probably wouldn't have found you guys or I just recently found you. Loved all your games but my favourites are Original AQ and AQW but I like AQW just that little bit more. Been supporting you for a while now and I look forward to playing with AE in the future!

So far my favorite has been aqworlds and dragonfable, aq because I can be evil unlike the previous games, (and work for dage) and dragonfable because I can have fun with my dragon, daracas. :) Im really happy to celebrate AE's 10th anniversary.

C: I joined in 2006 and started playing AQ got really far into about level 40 then I found out how to spend my level skill points then again I was like 10-11 I think. I then went on to play Dragonfable in 2007 I enjoyed it so much I upgrade my whole account and got the +2000 ac package so all new characters have 2000 extra acs. And I currently have 2 Doomknight pieces don't have money for the last two but still two.(ID 5507551) I later tried mechquest and quickly got bored of it. Epic duel I got to level 6 and stopped. Herosmash failed. I play AQW but that is getting old and boring sitting there as a level 45 just helping people and PvPing. I hope AQ3D is better but anyways congrats AE on 10 years

Julian_Shadowblade: Started with AQ classic.. Can't remember the year, but I loved it. I remember working so hard for the Necromancer class. hehe. Then DF was released... it was awesome, finally being able to run around and stuff. But I really got into playing Dragonfable some years later as the Ravenloss saga was released* And then Kabloom! AQW! Man I loved the Alpha** enjoyed it to play with fellow AE-Addicts, even through there wasn't much to do except killing bosses like Jack Sprat and the big Zardman guy. I never where into Mechquest that much, or Epic Duel, both are awesome games, but a bit too futuristic for me, guess it's a matter of taste. I'm still playing AQW like a madman, oh and thank you for the new founder dragon, it's chaotically-cute-cuddly and crushing at the same time. I am still a bit sad about the Evil war, I was on Dage's side but I'm not sad because we've lost, but it split the Evil players into two parties with still much tension between them.*** Enough said so far, happy 10th birthday AE, and keep up the good work, I see myself playing even in the far future.****

Ninjapiff
Ninjapiff: Jeez, looking back at what is now known as Artix Entertainment, I realize how important this game was to my current person. This game pretty much changed the way I have fun, and for that I am truly grateful.

I started playing the original AdventureQuest in the summer of 2005, and stayed on for a while. I don't exactly remember how I found this, but I think it was by clicking on an advertisement. To set this in perspective, I think I joined the game around the same time Carnax originally appeared. After playing AQ for a while, and after DF coming out, I started to play both, but soon moved on to DF more. Then, when MQ came out, I did pretty much the same thing; I started to abandon DF for MQ. Once AQW came out, however, I almost dedicated all of my time with that. I was able to get into beta, and still have the Beta Berzerker, and even the Barber, classes to prove it. I have been pretty much checking in at least once a week, and many times more. No game has moved above it: Epic Duel was ok, but the PvP dependency was too much for me, and I just lost interest in Herosmash.

But above all, was what AQ did to my life. Before AQ, I pretty much played, when it came to video games, Pokemon and similar titles. However, the discovery of AQ for myself was also a discovery of the traditional RPG setting. This even extended into gaining my love of Renaissance Fairs, mideval history and the like. If it were not for Adventure Quest, I probably would be like my brothers; Sitting on the couch 24/7 playing Modern Warfare 3. Instead, I sit on the couch and play Skyrim 24/7. :P

So, in all, thank you Artix Entertainment, past and present, for the wonderful experience. See you in the future!

orcorcorc2nd: It was around 2007 when I started playing your games. I began playing AdventureQuest Classic for a year until I found out that AdventureQuest Worlds had been released. However, I missed Beta testing and AQWorlds' first Mogloween event as I started on November. At first, I found AQWorlds not much interesting so I continued to play AQ Classic. After two years, I returned and found out how much AQWorlds had grown to. I was impressed. Even though I have lost my AQ classic and my first ever AQWorlds account, I really appreciate playing and I congratulate your 10th Anniversary. Happy birthday AE and AQWorlds!

Chaoswizard98
Chaoswizard98: You know there was just something about Adventure Quest that had this appeal to it, set it apart from all the other games I've played before. I first started my adventure back when the carnax war was going on. I've been on so many adventures, I cant remember exactly when that was.

Dragon Fable was another of my favorites mainly because of my love of dragons. When AQW came out I knew it would be amazing. I cant say just how many adventures me and my pet shadow dragon, Draco, have gone on, or how many bosses we've soloed, all I know is that we've had a blast the whole time (literally Draco almost ate my friend when he was wearing a taco suit, and burned his underwater house down. Apparently those underwater breathing potions are flamable...)

You guys have inspired me to major in computer programming, and to make a few games of my own. Many people think being 14 is being too old to play your games but I beg to differ. I am in college and still enjoy your games. With AQW being my favorite so far, I know the AE team will make all their games just as epic. Battle on!

Xanthera
Xanthera: I started playing AQ Classic about eight years ago, when I was thirteen years old. I saw some kids playing it on computers in the public library, and I knew that I had to play it. I spent my own money on a Gaurdianship almost immediately after I signed up because I couldn't get enough. I remember the original (unfinished) ArchKnight extremely fondly, and how I kept on thinking "When are they going to update it?!"

I'm still playing these games at age twenty-one, and they're always fun. Thanks for so many fond memories! Keep it up!

RedKutai
RedKutai: I got turned on to AdventureQuest in my junior high computer lab; it must've been very nearly 10 years ago (though it certainly feels longer, by now). Without a home computer, internet, or access to anything beyond a SNES, AQ - ironically, perhaps - was probably one of the most technically advanced games I'd ever seen. It was certainly the first time I'd seen anything like it.

Since then I've seen a lot of games - gotten into D&D myself, played several full-fledged MMOs, and even dabbled a bit in game designs of my own - but I keep coming back to AE games because they're just really, really fun. No matter what genre you explore, or what systems you use, you never seem to let anything get in the way of letting the player just have fun. And after all, that's what games are for.

I'm not sure what I'd consider my favourite AE game at this point; I'll always have a soft spot for AQ, simply because it was my first. MechQuest and DragonFable are pretty similar, but they each have their own unique brand of 'awesome' - enough so that I actually purchased a Dragon Amulet. That probably makes it fair to argue that DF is my 'favourite', but I'd honestly buy a membership to all of your games if I could afford it; just so you guys keep making them...

TheOriginalFive: The first crazy thing I can think of for the HeroSmash section of the anniversary event is not just placing a shop to commemorate the event, but giving the players a full-sized plot to chew through.

Second thing: Is the Clock Blocker involved? What about the Pandorian Malachite?

GeneralKai: First was AQW. It was 1 or 2 summers ago. My friend was getting me to play it. I saw a few ADs, and I was like "No way". He got me to play it, and it seemed legit. My fav has got to be DragonFable. Honestly, its an awesome game. Good job dev's. Oh and revive MQ. C:

Deni: I started playing AQ classic, then right away I'm like,"wow this game is awsome". Then I started DF, then MQ and then AQW in that order. So far I cant decide between DF and AQW for my favorite. I think I started like in '09 but I cant be sure cuz I think there is a glich and I probibly started in '08. :D

Tasuja: I started playing Adventure Quest in the summer of 2004 on a beatiful June day. I must admit that Adventure Quest has always remained my favourite, even though I haven't played it much after 2009 or so. I have played almost all Artix games in the order in which they have been released(or yet to be released).

Killuminator: I first played the original AQ, or AQ classic if you want, and that was pretty cool. Then I lost that account, so I created a new one when Dragon Fable came out. I played Mech Quest as well and that was good, but I haven't been keeping track of the DF and MQ for a few years now. Now I just mainly focus on AQW, and later, AQW 3D, I guess. Never was much of a fan for Hero Smash or Epic Duel.

G_Darkmoon: I started to play AE games in 2006, when i found AdventureQuest site. =) It was most awesome non-download online game i have ever seen. I played it like crazy, leveling my main character up to level 60+ something, with Necromancer becoming my favorite AQ class ever, and Vampires - favorite faction. =) Later i played DragonFable and MechQuest for a short while. Even though i liked those games, i disliked playing them as free player, and without means to buy upgrades back then, i dropped to play. In 2009 started to play AQW as a free player. Free stuff was scarce, and i really really hated to be free player. In 2010 i made tough decision and upgraded main account with membership. Always renewed my membership before expiration since then. Never regreted upgrading. Other players' claims that "members don't get a lot of benefits anymore" confused me. O'RLY? As member i was always getting everything i ever wanted in AQW. Staff team never ceased to surprise me. In 2012, recently, upgraded yet another account with membership. =) Having too much of everything on my main account, i really needed "fresh start", something to play for. Lol, my hands are full with all kinds of farming on my alt account! XD Right now i have like 100 AQW accounts in total, created mostly because of cool names i thought up, 6 of them upgraded with small packages of ACs, 2 with membership. So, you can guess that AQW is my favorite so far. XD

(-o-) Ifghar (-o-): Sarted with AQ classic, but I was pretty young and couldnt remember my password. I think I made like 20 accounts... After a few years I tried DF, it was awesome so I decided to try the rest of the games. I currently play and love then all, but my favorite is certainly DragonFable.

M4O: I must say that the Artix Entertainment splatter photo (above) is absolutely fantastic, I LOVE IT!! at first i didnt realize what it REALLY was, but when i looked closely i noticed the detail and it is so great! major props to the artist of this work :)

Anyway......My first game was Adventure Quest Original (and a fantastic RPG it was)that i just happened to see a friend playing a very long time ago, boy am i glad for that! My favorite is definitely AQWorlds although i do greatly enjoy Mechquest, and Oversoul looks very promising ( i also really liked the concept of Herosmash). All in all, AE has never failed to captivate, surprise, and just give me an overall great feeling, and i am proud and glad to have had the honor to partake in such a fantastic gaming community for all these years. Thank you.
