For this maintenance we celebrate the birthday of Imagineer and Disney Legend Yale Gracey.
The son of an American consul, Yale was born in Shanghai, China, on September 3, 1910. He attended an English boarding school and, after graduation, moved to the United States. There, he attended the Art Center School of Design in Los Angeles.
For those who have enjoyed Pirates of the Carribean and The Haunted Mansion, Yale was responsible for developing many of the special effects that make those rides so memorable. For example, the "flames" in the burning buildings in the penultimate scene of POTC and the various ghostly effects in THM are credited to Yale and Rolly Crump (most famous as the artist behind the Tiki Room).
Rolly tells of an incredible prank he and Yale pulled on the Imagineering dept.'s janitors:
Next Friday Night Fight scheduled for Friday September 26th! What kind of format would you like to see?
We are looking to implement a rotating event dungeon that would be similar to the challenge dungeon we did a little while ago. What maps and what monsters would you like to fight? For temporary event monsters we would be able to "create" monsters that do not currently exist on Classic. Every month or two we would be able to rotate what monsters/maps are available.
Boxter will be updated and will be giving out the last Lucky Box we've had in exchange for the brownie points.
Exp/Drops event extended one more week due to Malaysian players being unable to access the servers last week.
