NINE YEARS??? It’s hard to believe Wizard101 has been around nine years. Think of all that’s happened in the game, heck, in your life in the last nine years! And KI’s been plugging away with Wizard101 all that time. It seems like, well, it seems like a great cause to look back over our time in Wizard101…and maybe give away some stuff while we’re at it.
I look back over my time in Wizard101 and there are SO MANY memorable things I’ve done. The first Ravenwood Radio, the first RR afterparty, meeting some of the KI staff in Austin back at GDC in 2011 – just so many things I’ve done that have all been at least tangentially related to Wizard101. There’s one memory, however, that sticks out:
Some of you may not have been around for it, but once upon a time Friendly, Fallon Shadowblade, Leesha and I took on Malistaire in a livestreamed event. It was the first time I’d ever streamed something like that, and I had a fantastic time with the three of them defeating Malistaire and “finishing” that content. Since then I’ve done so many of those types of events in Wizard and Pirate and other games, but that was the first, and I’ll never forget it.
To celebrate Wizard101’s 9th birthday we’re going to give away nine prizes over the next seven days. Starting tomorrow (Thursday, September 21) we’ll be giving away a prize every day (and two on Friday, Saturday and Sunday). All you’ve got to do is e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description of your favorite Wizard101 memory over the past nine years. Use the subject HAPPY BIRTHDAY and get your entry in ASAP! The earlier your entry is in, the earlier it will be considered in the daily drawing. You only need to enter ONCE – we’ll toss out any duplicates.
So what are we giving away? Prizes will be randomly selected, but could include a random mount, a random Beckett wand (which can’t be obtained through any other means), 2500 Crowns, 25,000 Crowns, or the BIG prize of 50,000 crowns…that’s a lot of Jabari hires. Prizes will be announced on Twitter and winners will receive an e-mail with their prize code.
The first prize goes out tomorrow morning, so enter now!
EDIT: Looks like I forgot to include this – make sure you include your Wizard name!
