Hey guys. I bet you want to know what that picture is. Well look at it, then look at my words, now back at the picture, and now back at my words. Sadly, I haven’t described what it is yet, but if you stopped looking at it and gave me 100% of your attention, you might find out. Now look down, back up, where are you? You’re in front of a computer and have pants on. Wait, what’s in your hand? Now look back at my words. I have it, it’s a cookie whose name contains a letter with a clue as to what the picture is. Look again, that clue has become a question. Anything is possible when I accidentally take Nyquil instead of Dayquil. I’m on a chair.
Oh you wanted to know more about this picture? Well…
There’s something happening in Etheria. My underground sources have been telling me about a persistent rumor floating around town and were only able to snap the picture above. After seeing it, I just HAD to investigate. I strapped on a tiny camera on my trusty hamster, Speedy, and told him, “Squeak, squeak, squeakitty, squeak!” (I would translate that, but who in this day and age DOESN’T speak hamster?) It was supposed to be a simple in-and-out mission, but after a few hours, I got worried. Just as I was about to send in a rescue team, Speedy returns all bruised and hurt. As I nurse his wounds, I find that I can only recover one complete picture…
I’ll work on getting the rest of Speedy’s digital bounty. Speaking of maps…

March Community XP Event for 360 and PS3
We are gearing up for this month’s Community XP Events, and we’re going to do things a little differently this time around. We will not be able to run any on March 21 due to PAX, but that does not mean that our PS3 fans are going to miss out on this month’s fun. Instead of eliminating the PS3 event, we’ll just move it to Thursday, March 28, while the 360 event will take place on Wednesday, March 27. Both events will run from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT.
If you are interested in participating, all you have to do is comment in this PS3 XP Event thread with your name, PSN ID and what time of the day you will be online (in EDT please!), or in this 360 XP Event thread with your name, Gamertag and what time of the day you will be online. (Again, in EST please!) Use this converter to convert EDT to your local time zone. Signing up does not guarantee entry. We’ll post the final list on a Google doc that we’ll create the day before the event.
Participants will receive 50 million XP! Plus, you’ll get one-on-one time with members of the community team. Don’t forget to vote on which map and modifier you would like to play with. We have added two new modifiers: Benedict Arnold (Trendy hosts will randomly sell any defense. Idea courtesy of Damocles!) and High Gravity (Players can’t jump as high. Idea courtesy of UnarmedReaper07!) You can vote here. Voting ends this Monday, March 18, so hurry up!

Trendy Friday Fun: Returnia Shards Sponsored Event — This past Friday, Hitmonchan played on the third Returnia Shards Sponsored Event map: Return to Aquanos. We had DarkPython join us in the livestream, but sadly, Laura was unable to join thanks to some Grav-o-tron 3000 technical difficulties.
Have you ever gotten that feeling like you’re forgetting something? That’s how I feel right now. I have tried to do everything possible in order to remember what I’m forgetting. I have walked around the office, taken a nap on the fuf chair and raided the fridge. I guess I’ll remember by next week. See you then!
…Oh wait, I remember, it’s….
Until next time,
