Anarchy At Dragoncon

As always, Dragoncon was a complete blast for those of us at Funcom.

We'd especially like to thank Gridstream for coming out, as they not only kick out the jams, but they're also one of the coolest groups of people you could ever hope to meet. We love all our fans, naturally, but we have to admire a group so dedicated to us and our game that they broadcast live from the show floor, with all the temptations of the convention around them. It means a tremendous amount to us at Funcom to see them there every year, and we look forward to doing it again next year.

If you were at Dragoncon and missed the Anarchy Online panel, you missed a good time. You also missed some footage of the jetbikes and hoverboards, as well as a dazzling talk by the ever-charming Game Director. And though it was at a different presentation, we also gave away another custom AO laptop, pictures of which are available here. While marketing for Conan is in full swing, Anarchy Online will not go gently into that good night, and we made sure AO got its moments, mentions, and love on the show floor and in the presentations.

Along those lines, you may also be seeing some new faces around you soon. We had a lot of interest in AO, especially with it running on the big screen TV, and we gave away quite a few accounts in giveaways and contests. That new player beside you may just be one of the wide-eyed newbies that are truly new to the world of Rubi-Ka and AO. Do be kind.

Above all, we'd like to thank everyone who came by and said hello. You guys mean a lot to us, and we enjoy meeting fans of AO every year, and the turnout at the Anarchy panel was very cool. Putting faces to names is part of the fun of Dragoncon for those of us on AO, and we certainly hope to see you again next year.

For those of you who weren't there, we took some pictures of the booth and various AO-related things.
