April: Clash of the Forces


Evil forces lurk in the shadows... Pixel Joint is in danger!

Starting April 25th, two enemies are about to face each other in an epic battle of High Definition proportions. The power to protect the innocents or to feast upon them is in the hands of the few brave pixel pushers who want to be the decisive unit in this battle!

In the spirit of a 'maybe-competitive-free-to-participate-in-almost-wannabe-fad event', Metaru wants you to choose your destiny as part of the St George Knights Force and theme your avatar in a Knight-esque way to protect PJ or join the Evil Dragon Horde and theme your avatar in a Dragon-esque way to destroy it!

For example, if you happen to be

Then becoming a Knight turns you into

Or if you decided to be a Dragon instead

The prophecy tells that the battle will last until April 30th, when the side with the biggest army will prevail. The destiny of PJ is in your hands!

RWAR! Energy Dragon! RWAR!

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 4/30/2010 17:02

tomorrow the results will be anounced.

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/30/2010 10:16

If changing an existing sprite to update your avatar doesn't show up under "newest pixel art" does that mean that only the people who remember to comment here will be noticed and counted?

dogmeat (Level 1 Gangster) @ 4/30/2010 07:47

it's april 30th, now what?

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 4/29/2010 22:56

hatch said "ass"



Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 4/29/2010 21:41

Hello, I'm a viking*. We drink mead out of the skulls of knights and keep dragons as pets.



*just because I don't have a horned helmet doesn't make me not a viking shut up stop stereotyping ancient cultures you insensitive ass

Benevolent (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/29/2010 17:03

WEWT RH 29 to 24 knights still ahead

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/29/2010 16:58

I'm borrowing this for the time being.  I'll return it when the event is over.

And because everyone loves spazzy balls wearing armour.

Benevolent (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/29/2010 09:24

28 to 24

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 4/29/2010 05:09

1ucas thats brilliant :D I hope the herpes doesn't kill hem as the zombie already made him undead :P

Welcome to the chaos horde, vampireslug!

vampireslug (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/29/2010 04:13

I also second the vampire/werewolves fad as well as anything to do with zombies.  I'm just saying.

vampireslug (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/29/2010 04:12

I only spent around 10 minutes on this re-do but, for what it's worth, I'm throwing in with the Dragons.  Raowr!

1ucas (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/29/2010 03:06

This comic is surprisingly relevant.

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 4/29/2010 01:56

@ Metaru: Post.

I do care who wins! Make more dragon avatars! (Or i'm going to change sides bitches! jk)

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 4/29/2010 01:17

@vertigo it turns into an Alien mummy.

to be honest, i don't care who has more on his side. if anything, i already won over 150 messages on my inbox stop postingggggfdssdfgsd


Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 4/29/2010 00:10

@ Bosch: Even if sparkly vampires count as -5 vampires (which was only a joke) We still would'nt want to wear one to help the wherewolves :S It's not worth it :P

@Perkele: Adding zombies would be unfair. Vampires can't suck on zombies...

Question: If a wherewolve (in human form) gets infected by a zombie, what would it change to at full moon? :S

Jo (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/29/2010

 Maybe if it's this way it's obvious enough :)

Also spears > swords anytime of the year.

1ucas (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/28/2010 23:15


Benevolent (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/28/2010 22:42

27 to 23

Arcan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 4/28/2010 22:29

 ah dammit I'm a knight by default

Benevolent (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/28/2010 22:18

I would ask Metaru on that jao.

i think it is based on the current avatar and not the work.

If you want to do both just put both on one icon and have something to show you want both.

I'm not sure if thats allowed .

Like i said ask metaru on that.

Pragz (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/28/2010 22:06

But burning is cool. Sparkling is... sparkling.

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/28/2010 21:47

Instead of the whole "BLANK VERSUS BLONK" thing we could move on to something else. Like mutant avatars or freehanded ones. Those are just a couple idea off the top of my head

Jo (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/28/2010 21:40

 Wait wait wait. The counting is made based only on whatever version of the icon we are wearing at said time?

I mean, I want to make a knight one too, so that it counts a vote towards both sides. Is that possible, or only the visible avatar counts?

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/28/2010 21:28

Imma just terrorize it up here a little bit


Benevolent (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/28/2010 17:49


all we need is knights and our felowship !

7even (Level 9 T-rex) @ 4/28/2010 17:24

That's the kind of hope I was talking about.

Benevolent (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/28/2010 14:27

how am i being a hypocrite? i said vampires burn not sparkle only way i could be a hypocrite is that if i was a vampire that sparkled in the sun >.> and im not >.> so....ya

Dhr. Bosch (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/28/2010 14:19

vampires didn't start burning in the sun until after the film nosferatu which was made in 1921 so if you are opposed to sparkling beause it isn't true to the vampire mythos you're a bit of a hypocrite.

And though i would like to be on the side of the twilight bashers (good god does that anti-feminist mormon propaganda suck) i think that making sparkly emo vampires count as -5 vampires would give the werewolves an unbalancing advantage. A pro-werewolf user could just take one for the team and make a sparkly vampire instead of his actual preference (werewolf) for the sole purpose of winning.



Benevolent (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/28/2010 14:18

26 to 22

Perkele (Level 4 Murderer) @ 4/28/2010 14:06

I hope it's not too late to join you, dear fellow dragons! By the way, if we have werewolf and vampires in the next fad, I demand zombies as well!

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/28/2010 11:58

I don't know, I just made it up.  I think manly farts smell horrible, so homo farts smelling like flowers is very sensible.

Vic (Level 5 Sniper) @ 4/28/2010 11:02

what the heck is a homosexual fart? does it smell like flowers or what?

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/28/2010 10:20

Don't be a homosexual fart, 1ucas seconded it, I thirded it, and you fourthed it.

Ironic how you said I couldn't count.

Benevolent (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/28/2010 10:10

Sparkly gay vampires count as -5 vampires


Vampires to donot sparkle in in the sun.......they BURN!!!!!!!!!!!!

i second it since RH cant count >.>

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/28/2010 10:08

Sparkly gay vampires count as -5 vampires



1ucas (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/28/2010 09:51

Sparkly gay vampires count as -5 vampires

I support this motion. 

Benevolent (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/28/2010 08:09

Welcome brother Kinnison to the fellowship! 26 to 21
