July 7th, 2016. A day of reckoning that the Internet will remember for a long time. That was the day that Pokemon Go was released to a “soft” launch in Australia and New Zealand. I say “soft” because it wasn’t very long after that, that the rest of the world got their hands on it, myself included.
With the server issues finally starting to vanish, and more countries getting legit apps on their respective mobile marketplaces (looking at you Germany and UK), the full Canadian release feels like it’s nearly here. Until then anyone that has the app is still using a subverted version of the game, being either an APK or downloaded from an account based in another country. That just goes to show how popular this app has become.
Are you looking for the next big competitive game? Have a hankering to battle it out as Mythical beasts, Witches and Wizards? Well look no further! A new champion arises, and a new glorious death sport is born!
Winnipeg’s own Moonradish is reviving competitive couch multiplayer with their newly launched game Wand Wars, now available on Steam!

BaseLAN 29 has been over for more than one week now, and I’m only just recovering from the week long high (and flu). Everyone here at AYBOnline has been buzzing about how successful and exciting the event was, and how smoothly everything ran. In no small way that is thanks to all of you, our amazing fans, who played in our tournaments, tuned into our live casts, and checked out our demo area and sponsors.
