Penny Arcade's Tycho Gives Props

Tycho and Gabe from Webcomic Penny Arcade
MERCS is picking up steam, and it's player-base has grown to include Penny Arcade's Jerry Holkins, who uses the alter ego Tycho Brahe.

Tycho's Tweet: Kiko and I have been paying an unorthodox wargame. Trying to decide if it's a work of genius, or merely "brilliant."

The tweet of praise from one the video gaming industry giants caused a record number of hits to the MERCS website, causing some problems on the site which were quickly rectified. MERCS is an amazing game and it was only a matter of time before people caught on.
While Penny Arcade is focused on video games, Tycho and Gabe are also miniature wargamers. Here are a couple of wargaming comics from Penny Arcade:

So MERCS and the team have received some much appreciated, and well deserved recognition!

Sync out.
