ArenaNet is preparing to celebrate their favorite holiday in game and out of game. While they are not yet ready to share all the details about what they have planned they have given a little teaser. Surely the main reason for this is to give their fans plenty of time to work on their entries for the art contest this year. The diorama contest includes official Guild Wars 2 prizes along with some special items from SteelSeries and NVIDIA. If you are an arts and craft type person be sure to check out their official post and keep an eye out for the rest of the details coming soon. https://www.guildwars2.com/en/community-news/coming-soon-guild-war
Head over here http://rue-bot.deviantart.com/journal/THE-BIG-NOW-WITH-EDITS-CHARR-COLLABORATION-312201624 and take a look at this. If you plan to have a charr and want to get it involved in a massive army is sounds like fun.
I'll be playing Guild Wars 2 this weekend with a ton of other people and can hardly wait. My current plan is to start off on the Eternal Grove server/world and possibly move at some point before the end of the weekend to meet up with some of the many people I sort of know who will be in the game.
