2013: Year in Review

Thanks for making this AQW's BEST Year Yet!

WOAH man, guys! When you read down this list, you'll see we did a LOT of things together last year! You fought SO MANY monsters (including derp minotaurs, which NO ONE expected!), battled WAY more Chaos than you did in 2012, got a peek into the real life of Adam Bohn, Artix's creator, and so very much more!

Before you start reading all of the insane victories you racked up 2013, I want to take a moment to offer a heartfelt thank you to everyone! Legends, AC buyers, and free players alike... Without everyone who plays out games, enters our contests, and tosses ideas at us on Twitter, Facebook and the forum, this would be a different game and a very different world.

You - that's right, YOU - make AQW awesome!

Thanks to all of you, we are building something incredible. Not just AQWorlds, but a gaming community where heroes of all ages can come discover who they really are, and just how amazing they can become!
