April: Clash of the Forces


icon

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!

Dragon knight - either a knight exploiting a dragon or a dragon posed as a knight.  I say go by biology.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/24/2010 17:31

Knights are losers.


user
ooshmaster (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/24/2010 16:01

 

knight!


user
[thUg] (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/24/2010 14:28

I'm already a kind of knight in fact


user
Wuuhuu (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/24/2010 14:09

 May I just switch avatar completely? I've had the urge to make a new one in ages, this might actually get me back on pixel art-ing.. sorta.


user
Dhr. Bosch (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/24/2010 12:55

obviously,

 

robin of sherwood was a knight in king lionheart's army, even if you don't change your avatar you should count for us


user
Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/24/2010 09:53

Hmm... what should i do? :D


user
Peeter (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/24/2010 09:16

Can I be a viking? They are kind of like knights. 


user
Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 4/24/2010 08:58

You'd be either a traitor or a spy. Tough call.


user
Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 4/24/2010 08:51

I was so about to come in here and say something like that, but more like dragon-rider-knight.

We should all be dragon-rider-knights. Unite! Uknight!


user
Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 4/24/2010 08:36

If I did a dragon knight, what side would I count for?


user
Robinson (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/24/2010 08:21

 Finished my dragonish update!  

Made it in like 10 minutes because I wanted to participate! ( missed the chrosmetic thing)


user
theguy (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/24/2010 07:34

Inspirational words to the team i like and degrading ones to the team I dislike! Rawr.


user
a3um (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 4/24/2010 06:05

Dragons ftw!


user
fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/24/2010 05:16

This fad is stupid.


user
Mis-BUG (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/24/2010 05:07

I don't care about your foolish beliefs, but my Dark Lord asked me to interfere in the battle between the guard of Diocletian and the dragons... so fear the nonsense rage of the one-soldier undead nonsense army!


user
Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 4/24/2010 02:47

I'm ready for battle!!

Now my avatar actually looks more like the very first version (see description) than the original does.


user
r1k (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/23/2010 23:39

that is just awesome, thereisnocure.


user
The Fry Bat (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/23/2010 23:21

All dragons are puny, reptilian putty in my hands~


user
7even (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/23/2010 22:39

RUN COWAAARDS


user
Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 4/23/2010 22:03

user
Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 4/23/2010 19:21

this is perfect for those with non-humanoid avatars like me :D


user
Dhr. Bosch (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/23/2010 18:13

user
cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/23/2010 18:07

Just call me Siegfried. For the honor of PJ!


user
jeremy (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 4/23/2010 17:52

 And knights are already wrapped in tinfoil for convenience :D


user
Antifarea (Level 4 Ensign) @ 4/23/2010 17:43

I'm in, only if I get to kill metaru.

 


user
Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 4/23/2010 16:03

because we CAN.


user
Lizard (Level 5 Sniper) @ 4/23/2010 15:59

Why would we even want to destroy pj anyway?


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/23/2010 15:02

Except, you pixel a tree and a dragon. NOT edit someone's art, mkay.


user
Nxzfreak (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/23/2010 14:53

i see a tiny bird in that tree, birds have wings, dragons have wings, so i suggest that you add tiny wings to the tree and a reptile mouth and call it a dragon tree


user
Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/23/2010 14:51

my avy is not made by me and it's a friggin tree! what knight or dragon would that make?


user
Nxzfreak (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/23/2010 14:35

@ shawn a real challenge would be to make your current avatr into a dragon themed one instead :]

 

(sorry for double)


user
Nxzfreak (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/23/2010 14:34

<----- Yeah.... Dragons will win, we are cute, threatening and breathe fire. Nuff said


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/23/2010 14:17

Dragons are self-contained BBQ pits. The knights will be victorious.


user
inphy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/23/2010 14:16

They're also good snacks.


user
Nightmare Maker (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 4/23/2010 13:51

Because crusaders and knights kick some serious ass.


user
Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 4/23/2010 13:42

do i dare edit my avatar into knight bartz?!


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/23/2010 13:42

Bring it on.


user
Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 4/23/2010 13:24

groaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar


user
1ucas (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/23/2010 13:14

Just a helmet would be fine, I think, if you do it with style.

This sounds fun! Thanks for the idea, Metaru.

The idea doesn't fit my current avatar, but it's a good idea to try something new.


user
r1k (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/23/2010 13:13

cool.  Not sure how to turn my avatar into a knight though since its just a head and just putting a helmet on it would be lame.  maybe its time to give him a body.


user
Robinson (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/23/2010 12:57
i'm joining the dragon horde!!!

user
greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 4/23/2010 12:54

Hmmm... interesting. o_O


user
dogmeat (Level 1 Gangster) @ 4/23/2010 12:36
