Hello everyone!

If you didn't know, we covered the Mage Wars tournament while we were at GenCon 2015. We've got a lot of videos for you all, and in this thread we'll talk about the interviews we had.

There are quite a few, so we'll update this as we release them. We'll be releasing two a day until early next week (which is hopefully when you'll be able to see the tournament matches - Intangible is sick however, so we'll have to keep you updated on when we're close to releasing those).

Without further ado, here's what we've got so far:

Hey guys! Felt it was unnecessary for us to post another thread for this but... We have officially hit 500 subscribers on our Youtube channel!

It's been just over a year since our first video and we want to thank everyone for your support. We bow our heads in appreciation to those who have been involved and those who have encouraged us to go this far. Without your continued support we would have never found such a great community. Of course, we also thank Arcane Wonders, for making such a wonderful game and supporting us in our efforts.

We're looking toward the future and all the great things to come. Thanks everyone, we couldn't have done it without you.

Oh those legendary stickers...
"I close my eyes and seize it
 I clench my fists and beat it
 I light my torch and burn it
 I am the beast I worship..."

If you seek beneath our floors a sticker that was never yours, thief you have been warned, beware of finding more than stickers there.

Warlock: Slytherin!
Priestess: Hufflepuff!
Wizard: Ravenclaw!
Beastmaster: Gryffindor!

The rivalries between the houses would be more realistic in Mage wars than in the Harry Potter series.

Gryffindor=jocks
Ravenclaw=nerds
Slytherin=goths
Hufflepuffs=preps

Which one makes more sense as a house rivalry? Jocks (beastmasters) vs goths (warlocks)? Or preps (priestesses) vs goths (warlocks)?

Unlike Hogwarts, Etheria gets this right.

Warlock (Slytherin) vs Priestess (Hufflepuff)

Beastmaster (Gryffindor) vs Wizard (Ravenclaw)

you guys deserve this credit more then everybody else,who's trying to make this game more popular !!! I even suggested on the Arcane Wonders FB page that you guys should get a contract from them !!!

You guys are the best marketing /publicity for Mage Wars, and Arcane Wonders should reward you much more for this !!! second : lordofwinter with his blog, and third Schwenkgott for being the OCTGN master tactitian !

i've been watching your channel since the beginning, and every day i'm checking if you guys have posted new material...so now please..start posting those matches !!!!

...i'm also counting the days to see Academy and Domination appear in our European Shops...
