You have made this Hungarian artist sad :c Got my hopes up for a second there until I've read the last part.

Oh well, at least US and Canada residents have the chance, that's awesome of you guys. Good luck for the contestants!

Didn't Anet say that most of their playerbase was located in EU?

I'm sorry that some of you will think it's unfair, but I can't exactly agree with that. There have been several EU sites that have given CE's since Guild Wars 2 has come out. The restriction sucks, yes, but there have been many opportunities for both regions.

Feel free to PM me if you have a question regarding moderation, want to leave some feedback, or just want to chat!

Maybe I'm wrong but I really do not recall such a opportunity for EU players in the past.

There are EU located FanSites that have run similar contests.  This is not a question of fairness - it's a question of Geography, which is out of everyone's control.

Your right, I've checked and there was one time event when they had giveaway on EU fan sites in august but rewards were only Deluxe and standard game edition boxes.
Couldn't find anything more unfortunately.

Thorn is a full-length Guild Wars 2 novel that's currently nearing its final chapters.

Six months of work so far, and over 100,000 words--roughly 350 pages and counting as of early February. I suspect we'll be looking at 450 or so by the time it's finished.

If anything was ever a labor of love, this is it.

(EDIT: Chapter 14 is now live as of 2/6.)

Here's my entry

It may look like it's just a regular screenshot...

but under closer inspection, you can see I individually filled in every single pixel by hand.

This was initially for a wintersday art contest, but it took much much longer to finish than what I first expected.
Thus explaining the wintersday theme.

also, I'm not very good at doing eyes.

This is true, but as GW2Guru being the biggest fansite I'm kinda disappointed with this.. :/

Moas are red.
They're also blue.
Boy, I sure like
Playing Guild Wars 2

I can has 1st place now?

Wait, I've got another one.
Rumhalf the red-nosed norn
had a very shiny nose
and if you ever saw it
you would even say it glows

All of the other norn
used to laugh and call him names
they never let poor Rumhalf
play in any drunken games

Then one foggy Wintersday eve
Logan came to say...
"Rumhalf with your nose so bright!
I've gotta run away now."

The end.

I never bothered to carve pumpkins before, but I did this past October after seeing all the cool screenshots of Mad King Thorn. It's been a couple months, but I made it at one point so it still counts, right? ;P
