New fiery Avalon Heroes event

Munich, Germany, April 15, 2011

The Avalon Heroes contest of the year, continuing until May 31, is all about RPS, the value used to establish the players' rankings. As FIRESTORM! is launched, the score is reset to 1,500 points for all participants - the maximum number of points that can be achieved during the event is 3,000. Players only get RPS in "5-on-5" games or through single matching. If two players have the same amount of RPS, their Kin level is taken into account.

FIRESTORM! promises to reward the best of the best with fantastic in-game prizes. The overall winner will receive no less than 100,000 AP (alaplaya points) and items such as the "G2 Ethereal Stone of Choice", for example. To learn more about the prizes, the course of the competition and all there is to know, please visit http://avalonheroes.en.alaplaya.net/teasers/34170-ah-firestorm.

Avalon Heroes is free to play! For more information, please visit the official website, www.avalonheroes.alaplaya.net, or the alaplaya Facebook page ( http://www.facebook.com/alaplaya). The games client is available for free download at www.avalonheroes.alaplaya.net/download.
