    L. O. L. XD

    I actually believed the first part too, and the biped-only-with-3-schools-bit. My brain was already saying to me: 'Hey, I'm not really too big on bipeds but that's not right--what about the whole 'Grand Master' Crafter/Adventurer thing? COMPLAIN WHINE ANNOY' XD

    If there's one thing you gotta love about VI it's that they're not afraid to have a good joke. XD

    You think this is bad, last year the staff at WoWInsider (a major WoW news & information site) announced that they were changing emphasis and becoming Hello Kitty Online Insider. They did over a dozen articles & blogs about HKO during the day, all of them sugary-sweet beyond the point of being just Pollyanna.

    As I recall, the sheer volume of hate emails they got was just staggering, and quite a few folks really thought they were serious..

    LOL, Hello Kitty.

    As soon as the notification of new mail popped up for me, I knew it was going to be an April fools. And it was awesome! I loved that Dragon weapon-concept. XD *in fact, I have the picture as my wallpaper now!*

    I love you VI.

    Guess I need to start saving for a Mac now ~ XD

    Expand the biped adventure schools to 7 max and you would have a viable, non-joke cencept.

    The dragon/biped seperate cave thing would have held a lot more water if the Khuttit penalty hadn't already been removed

    The ten seconds it took me to realize that this was an April's Fool joke were really scary.

    I hate you.

    Truly evil. Then I realized what the date was. This one made last year's spoof look like a trip to Disneyworld.

    I hardly ever post...but I had to hand it to VI, all I kept saying was.."That's crazy", "Nice Dragon art, but that looks ridiculous". I had to read the line several times where it explained it was a joke.

    Good job. Reminded me to go and make someone laugh today.

    Everyone should pay it forward....make someone laugh today.

    My first thought (sad I know) is that "A third of the year gone already"? Um no. Three months have gone. That's a quarter of a year...

    I was reading out highlights to my hubby.. thinking "yeah that makes sense" on the dual labyrinthe thing..

    going "mmm that's not gonig to please some people, but it doesn't affect crafters yet" on the three schools thing...

    when I got to the "mac only", my radar started ticking... and as soon as I said it out loud, my hubby went "well, bye bye Istaria".. and I realised the date.. then I read the last couple of sentences.

    Thanks, Amarie, I almost had a heart attack!


    By the way, the email notification on Facebook was an excellent idea!

    I too was shaking my head in disagreement but actually believing the article until the "first "Mac only" MMORPG on the market" part and then it hit me like a ton of bricks. Had I looked at the screenshots before realizing, I am sure the sword & shield toting dragon would have tipped me off. Very cleverly done VI! Thanks for the laugh, even if it did nearly cause a panic attack ...

    HOLY CRAP!! GREAT April fool's - You had me going until the first response post. Honestly - I was like "oh dear...naka's aren't going to like this.."

    Course the dragon stuff I was fine with *big grins* except for the weapons ...

    And honestly the seperate labryinths made sense from a "viewer" standpoint - as I can totally see big ancient butts and little naka in a cavern being a ...concern?

    On the whole though totally glad this was a April Fool's Joke - now I only hope everyone who gets the email figures it out as well..lol.

    Recognised it for what it was almost immediately because I was thinking about April Fools' yesterday. xD

    I thought the death by dragon idea was pretty good! JK! I was like "no body is going to like that bit. Well people who have bipeds anyways." But I forgot today was April Fools so... yeah... I kinda went along with it. xP
