Events, Prizes and More

This press release was issued late yesterday by the folks at Hero Online. Keep reading to hear about all the launch fun that will continue through August.

NEWS UPDATE:

The following events will take place during the first month of Official Release.
The events page, however, will be continually updated, and we highly encourage our users to keep their eyes and ears open.

nCash Giveaway
We are pleased to announce that all users will receive $3 in nCash to purchase cash items in Hero Online Premium Item Mall. Tell all your friends to join and receive their free cash today!

Extravaganza Tickets (Grand Prize)
Throughout Hero Online, we have distributed many Extravaganza Tickets for our players to collect and qualify for the chance of winning an iBUYPOWER computer (customized for Hero Online). The drawing for the Grand Prize will take place after the event period has ended.

Rogue GM Events
With the new bounty system, it will be much easier to track and take down our Rogue GMs who''ve stolen Extravaganza tickets to hoard for themselves. We need our players help to find these thieves and take back the tickets!

Boss Monster
Some of our Rogue GMs have stashed some of their stolen Extravaganza Tickets with their new buddies, the boss monsters. Defeat them and take the tickets for yourselves!

Legendary Characters
In the world of Hero Online there are many legendary warriors who reward those skillful enough to defeat them. Few have accomplished this feat, but tell tales of the greatness of their reward. Be on the lookout for these legendary characters as they often traverse the land during the summer.

Spell it out! (Grand Prize)
During the first month of release we will be implementing several event items that will have alphabet characters on them. Players can attain these items through small quiz events as well as off certain boss monsters. Through many hints and clues provided by the GMs in forums, threads, and chats, players can spell out mystery words to receive prizes ranging from in-game items to the Grand Prize!

Background/ Wallpaper Contest (Grand Prize)
During the first month of Official Release, we will be accepting submissions from players and users who wish to create new and exciting backgrounds for Hero Online! Our panel of judges (consisting of GMs, graphics designers, developers, and more) will choose the top three backgrounds and award prizes to the winners. The first place winner will receive one of the Ibuypower.com desktop towers!

Player Guides (Grand Prize)
We will be hosting a contest for players to submit guides for Hero Online. A panel of judges will choose the top three guides and reward them with prizes ranging from MGame merchandise to the Grand Prize. Guides will be judged on how well they explain all the features of Hero Online as well as how to play the game. Guides on how to level a character will not qualify unless it includes a majority of the features and systems for Hero Online (i.e. warfare, bounty, pet system, Master/Disciple, House setup/wars, etc.).

Player Created Stories
Are you a great storyteller? Can you role-play with the best of them? Do you have what it takes to impress coffee-ridden cynics who stare at computer screens all day long? Great! Because MGame is now accepting storylines from players as an event! The top 5 submissions will receive prizes such as in-game items and/or MGame merchandise as well as the chance to have their story posted on the website for all to appreciate. Winners might even have a chance of having their character mentioned in the GM storylines and/or take part in exclusive storyline events! More details and rules will be announced on the website during Release.

Stay tuned to MGame's Hero Online Event Page for all the latest details on these events and more.


Experience Week Canceled

A note has been posted on the official site for Hero Online that their week long experience event has had to be canceled.

We regret to inform you that we have canceled our exp week event due to conflicting problems with our new UI. Our exp event is currently causing a lot of problems with our testing which is causing us to delay the release due to constant problems. So in order to keep the release date May 9th, we have to shut down our experience event.

FiringSquad.com posted this interview today with Firefly CEO today.

FiringSquad: What can you tell us about the storyline for the game?

Simon Bradbury: Only a little at this stage. Our hard bitten mercenary hero enters the dungeon on what he thinks is a straightforward mission, but it soon proves anything but… It will involve a dungeon under siege, a dungeon that needs the Hero’s help.
