The Ærena Devs will play from 8pm until 11pm CEST tomorrow and if you beat one you'll earn an ingme prize! Same goes for having a twitch stream with 10+ viewers while playing against one of us! Bonus for beating a Devs while streaming!

We will release a full list of the participating Devs, but besides Michelbert, Mental, Columba Palumbus and Primetide there will also be less lethal opponents like me ːbeatmeatː

You might also meet some Devs who you probably didn`t know already and we will chat about Ærena's development past and future!

We will also spend the "buy the developers a beer" DLC money, so who knows what other crazy things we might think of during that.
