Only this weekend’s World Tournament Series Invitational Qualifier stands between the top PvP teams in Guild Wars 2 and the Finals event in Beijing, China, where players from all over the world will clash in the ultimate showdown. The victors will take home the lion’s share of the $50,000 prize pool and the privilege to call themselves World Tournament Series Champions. Hundreds of teams have been eliminated from the running over the past two months, and the remaining teams will only have one shot to prove that they have the skill and tenacity required to play on behalf of their region. No longer is this tournament about the individual players behind the teams, but rather the countries, the cultures, and people they represent.
North America, Europe, or China – who do you stand behind? Ultimate bragging rights for your entire region are on the line.
European World Tournament Series Invitational Qualifier: October 25, 9:00 a.m. PDT (12:00 p.m. EDT, 18:00 CEST)
North American World Tournament Series Invitational Qualifier: October 26, 12:00 p.m. PDT (3:00 p.m. EDT, 21:00 CEST)
In celebration of the Invitational Qualifier, this weekend all players will benefit from +10% increased PvP rank point gain, +15% reward track progress, and an additional +100% magic find while in Heart of the Mists (and yes, this works on all reward track boxes)! Feeling festive? Make sure to work on your Halloween reward track, featuring festival rewards and a 20-slot bag as the final prize!
Fans who tune into the tournament livestream on Saturday and Sunday can also be entered into one of the many giveaways we’ll be running all weekend, where, if you’re lucky enough, you can take home a Mini Llama or a precursor of your choosing – just make sure to follow our official Twitch channel and participate in chat! We’ll also be supporting the tournament with German and French livestreams, each with giveaways of its own, so make sure to support your favorite shoutcasters!
We’ll see you on Twitch and in the Mists!read more
The return of Living World Season 2 is rapidly approaching. When the season resumes on November 4, we’ll see the story pick up from the cliffhanger that left one of the world’s leaders fighting for survival, and the races of Tyria preparing for war against the Elder Dragon Mordremoth.
For Tyrians, the awakening of each of the previous elder dragons led to catastrophic world events: earthquakes, tidal waves, and the raising of a long sunken continent are just some examples of the destruction left in their wake. These have seared their marks into the face of Tyria.
Now another elder dragon stirs deep in the heart of the jungle. The world’s leaders have agreed to turn their attention to this new threat and attempt to destroy it before it can wreak the havoc they’ve seen other elder dragons sow. As season 2 returns, we turn our eyes towards Mordremoth as our next target. We also ponder the meaning of the vision given by the Pale Tree and the role that legends of Tyria’s past may play in a story that is yet to unfold.
As we’ve done in the past, there will be festival releases interweaved into this coming Living World season. Let’s take a quick look at our festival calendar for the remainder of 2014.
This coming Tuesday, October 21, the Mad Realm returns with our annual Halloween release. On December 16, we’ll release our usual holiday-themed festivities with Wintersday. Both of these releases will feature the same content as last year but with refreshed rewards, giving you fun new festival-themed items to earn.
The road to war is paved by points of no return. Tyria has already decided to take the battle to Mordremoth. As we go on this journey we’ll learn dark secrets of Tyria’s past, venture into stories with roots deep in the very heart of Guild Wars lore, and visit places that have only been rumored to exist.
Season 2′s final episode will feature an unforgettable end for all of you who go on this journey with us. So make sure to jump in and join the ride starting on November 4.
We’ll see you in game!read more
