Silly question, but does the collector's edition box include a copy of the game? Or is it just the Rytlock figure?

Cool, thanks for the info. In that case, I'll throw my hat into the ring.

My vote goes to... there's way too many amazing Gw2 artists out there.. can't decide..  

off the top of my head; can only think of these guys:
actionjack and his comics (I can't find the thread)
Jaqen Hghar and his artwork. I would link the thread but the mods destroyed it..... just saying.
Eshera and her speedbrush work
CKABEH 3BEPOB and his fanart

The CE i kinda understand, because of shipping. But the gem card could be easily be given to anyone in the world... sucks =/

Given, yes. Awarded? No. See, there's these nasty things call laws, and unfortunately it's complicated enough wiht just dealing with one region's laws (in this instance, North America). Especially if you have a contest based on merit (like this) but auto-disquailfies someone from placing in the top spot because of something not related to the contest that doesn't outright disqualify them from the contest. No "You can enter if you are not from here, but you can't win first place".

And even giveaways can have issues with items worth money - and the gem cards are blatantly worth money.

I do find the Arizona/Massachusetts thing odd though. It's usually Rhode Island (due to contest registration rules. Or does this not hit the fees/etc since it's not a simply lottery-giveaway style?)

I was excited to enter for the whole of 5 seconds until I read Massachusetts residents aren't eligible. Well that's a punch in the face.

Well I came here and saw the competition and got really excited to be able to participate until I read that this competition isn't worldwide, thus excluding me seeing as I live in England... *sigh*

The picture I was going to post was this one, it's a background I made on the day the game launched because it captured the exact essence of the game that I loved and that was the union between individuals to help defeat and overcome obstacles, I know it's not the best, but I was happy with the result and maybe somebody here might be interested:

I've also been enjoying finding the beauty in the world by viewing the vistas of each zone:

There's an infinite amount of fun and adventure to be had in this game and although I am unable to partake in this competition I look forward to seeing what other people have to offer because I truly love this game and can't wait to see/hear what other people have done in relation to it.

:)

My understanding is this isn't an ANET contest.  This is a guru contest..... since it says Curse rules of entry...  Anet just donated them the signed copies.


As for my entry I decided to do a screen shot.  I am an explorer at heart and love getting places not very many people have been or will be able to get!!  [url="http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/692/gw059x.jpg/"]http://imageshack.us...692/gw059x.jpg/[/url]

I play an online racing simulator called iRacing. I was so excited for GW2 to come out last year, that I made a GW2 truck to race with, that I still race today. I ended up having a diecast made of the truck because it looked so cool (in my opinion).

Here are in-game screenshots:

and here is an early picture of the diecast:

I will get some more pictures of the completed diecast, but it is at home and I am at my dorm at the moment, so it will be a few days.

So I wrote a song with my friends that is a prequel to the song "Fear Not this Night" by Jeremy Soule and Asja. This song "Rise" is in the perspective of Dylan Thakery as Kralkatorik attacks Ebonhawke. Well here it is.

Verse
I can breathe it’s okay, understand everything
I don’t see I don’t care, what could be happening
The snow cold ground, warmed by touch, Read-y my sword, the coming fight
The sun betrays, as darkness falls, cold grips my soul, and blurs my sight
I look above, towards the sky, the silent sound shining bright
I hold my hands, brace the storm, follow this fallen light


Pre-chorusx2
(I look above, towards the sky, the silent sound shining bright)
Night falls, Fear not this night
(I hold my hands, brace the storm, follow this fallen light)
Night falls, Fear not this night

Chorus
The darkness grows stronger, in spite of its hunger
In death it gains power, in truth it devours
I’m tumbling farther, this isn’t yet over
I made peace with everything; I can now see the end
The warriors, the soldiers, all dead from the storm and
I took this end from him, was wishing that for me
Hope is lost, Can’t be found, dead with ones on the ground
Hold my sword stained with red, hoping it’s not the end

Verse
An endless fight, Ends tonight
A struggle fought, all for naught
Night reborn in the light
End the storm, end the night
And is it sad in the end,
The end of this cold undead
The start of night fallen days
End this life, end this pain

Pre-chorus x2
(I look above, towards the sky, the silent sound shining bright)
Night falls, Fear not this night
(I hold my hands, brace the storm, follow this fallen light)
Night falls, Fear not this night


Chorus
The darkness grows stronger, in spite of its hunger
In death it gains power, in truth it devours
I’m tumbling farther, this isn’t yet over
I made peace with everything; I can now see the end
The warriors, the soldiers, all dead from the storm and
I took this end from him, was wishing that for me
Hope is lost, Can’t be found, dead with ones on the ground
Hold my sword stained with red, hoping it’s not the end

Night falls, Fear not this night x (sang through 2[sup]nd[/sup] chorus)

Chorus
The darkness grows stronger, in spite of its hunger
In death it gains power, in truth it devours
I’m tumbling farther, this isn’t yet over
I made peace with everything; I can now see the end
The warriors, the soldiers, all dead from the storm and
I took this end from him, was wishing that for me
Look past the felled, into the dark, rage building in, inside my heart
Raise my sword stained with red, knowing this is not the end

Night falls, Fear not this night x (until the end)

I log on you you when I need you, my heart's locked out until
You come to me, come to me questing and gathering
When you come to me
Give me everything I need
Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams
Speak the language of Norn like you know what it means
ohh, it can't be wrong
Take my heart and make it complete baby

You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than Azeroth, any place I've ever been
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every event i play
Tearing up my copy of Warcraft, baby without you I would rather be dead

In your heart I see the stars of every night and every day
In your eyes I get lost, Asura is simply the way
Just as long as I'm here in Tyria
I could be in no better place

You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than Azeroth, any place I've ever been
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every event i play
Tearing up my copy of Warcraft, baby without you I would rather be dead

Each time I log off I start losing control
You're walking away with my heart and my soul
I can feel you even when I'm alone
Oh baby, don't let go

You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than Azeroth, any place I've ever been
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every event i play
Tearing up my copy of Warcraft, baby without you I would rather be dead


-DVSPH0ENIX (Remix of Tina Turner's Simply the best)
