Who will be our next Dragon Rider?
Good day, Dragon Lords!
You may remember a day back in October 2017 when the Dragons Community team hosted a livestream with one of our Dragons artists, Johannes, to create a new Dragon Rider for the Spring 2018 Season. We ran a huge Twitch event where anyone could vote on different aspects of this new rider, including hair color, weapon type, and even a related theme to an already-released Dragon.
What came from that stream was a captivating new character introduced to the world of War Dragons thanks to the votes and interactivity of the community during the stream. This character is now the beginnings of our next Dragon Rider, who will be the first Rider released in the Spring 2018 Season!
Check out our Twitch stream where we originally concepted this Dragon Rider together:
Here’s the concept for the new Dragon Rider that we ended the stream with:
Shout out to Johannes, our amazing Dragons artist, who concepted this live on stream!
Our Rider Needs a Name and Backstory!
Now, here’s where you come in...again. Since the community created this Dragon Rider, why stop at appearances? We want to hear from you on what you think this new Dragon Rider’s name should be, as well as the backstory for which she is known. Do you have a super cool name for this demonic half-beast archer? Do you believe she was born from the ashes and has ambitions to become the strongest Dragon Rider in history? Do you think she’s a lawful good citizen of her people or a chaotic evil threat to humans and Dragons alike? You can decide all of these things during this Naming Contest!
Here’s how the contest will work:
From now until the end of Wednesday, February 14th, you’ll have the chance to submit considerations for the Dragon Rider’s name and lore.
The open naming portion of this contest will end of the 14th, at which time the Dragons team will deliberate on which names should go to a final community vote.
We’ll post the top 10 names for this Dragon Rider on Friday, February 16th, and you’ll have another week to vote for your favorite name out of the 10.
Once the votes are in and the scores are tallied, we’ll announce the name of our community-created Dragon Rider!
In-game, the Dragon Rider can only have a name that is one word in length, but we can add a subtitle for the Dragon Rider to the Season Branch art and various places online. For example, Dragon Rider Kayla’s full name is ‘Kayla, the Fiend Slayer’. Her name is one word, but her subtitle also exists in the Wintertide Seasons tab. Keep this in mind when submitting your name for this new Dragon Rider!
For those names that end up making it into our final vote, their creators will receive an awesome prize from the Dragons team for their submission! The player who ultimately submits the winning name will get an even bigger prize, so stay tuned for more details! We will send all of these prizes directly to your War Dragons account shortly after the contest has ended.
