You know, I love the Internet some days. Honestly, last night it was able to put me right there at the GDC awards show, and I was watching it from my living room real-time. The good news is that Wizard101 won the audience award!! 170,000 votes were counted. It once again came down to a battle between League of Legends and Wizard101. Both are great games with really active players.
Joseph Hall, J Todd Coleman, and Kiersten Samwell hopped up on stage and delivered some thanks that I think you should hear. Although the entire show is good (a couple bad jokes), here's a link to their acceptance speeches: Click.
I was really happy to hear Kiersten say these words, "We wouldn't be here both in this game space and on this stage if it wasn't for our players, our fansite owners, and every single one of you in the audience, so thank you for loving the game we love to make."
Dear Kristen, from at least one of your plethora of fansites: "You're welcome!"
Now . . . for the rest of you wondering where your mystery pet is . . . HAHAHA! Wizard101 Twittered a few messages after the award show.
Enjoy your victory, KingsIsle! Woot pet next week!
Happy Community Manager Appreciation Day!
