If you missed our State of the Game video discussion with ArenaNet developer Jonathan Sharp then make sure to drop by here to give it a read.

If you for some reason aren't able to watch the video version then we are providing you with a transcription of the entire show.

Transcribing these shows take a lot of time and effort which is why we are asking the community for help. If you feel like helping then throw me (Frozire) a PM and I will provide you with a small section that you should transcribe. These sections won't be longer then 5-10 minutes, which doesn't sound like a lot, but when transcribing you usually use 5 times the audio length to transcribe it.

Depending on how many hands we get working, or if we get any working at all, I will be releasing the next 15-30 minutes of the show, transcribed Wednesday.

Hit the spoiler tag for the transcribed text!

We are sorry to inform that the State of the Game stream will not be happening. We are recording it locally and will be releasing a video as soon as possible.

What happened?
To secure uptime and reliability on the stream I had two connections setup so that if one went down I could immediately connect to the other and continue the stream.

And now, it all sounds good but what went wrong? For the first 15 minutes I were attempting to connect to our stream through my connection 1, and every time we went online it would get shut down by a massive amount of requests. How do I know this was DDOS? I had prepared my ISP for this as they are a rather small company they quickly noticed the increased requests and called me within a few minutes of the first shut-down asking what was happening. Sadly they do not have the capabilities to handle this and decided to simply shut-down my connection 1.

What now?
We are, as we speak, recording this locally on my connection 2, which has not been taken down. We could have streamed it from this connection, but due to the risk of this connection getting taken down we decided to just record it locally so we get some content out of this.

I apologize to everyone, ArenaNet and Guru for this. Back to Top

e-Sport: Electronic Sports League to Pick up Guild Wars 2?
ESL.eu's Admin Staff Member Peli recently posted on reddit that they are indeed thinking about picking up Guild Wars 2 to be a part of their e-sport leagues. This would mean a huge deal for Guild Wars 2 e-Sport scene and could possibly be the beginning of something great!

They want the community to give them feedback on this idea so be sure to drop by and let them know just how much we want this!

Quote

What is ESL?
ESL is one of the biggest e-sport leagues in the world. It includes many amateur competitions in various games and some more serious tournaments like Intel Extreme Masters or EPS.

What do we want?
We are thinking about opening a Guild Wars 2 section on ESL.eu. To make it happen, we need few things:
  • admins - league cannot live by itself. At the moment, nobody from our Staff is playing the game. We are looking for admins that will fill our game knowledge gap.
  • players - even more important thing. It's simple, if we are making a league, we need some players to play in there.

Wintersday is coming...


It's that time of year again... children receiving gifts, the religious among us celebrating the respective feasts, family time, and the Guild Wars Wintersday.  A common Christmas tradition with Arenanet, Wintersday is the neutral feast of the winter and the fights of the gods.  Check out the event page for more information!

Quote

The nights may be long and dark, but Tyrians of all races keep joy alive during the ancient holiday of Wintersday. While each race celebrates Wintersday in their own unique way, children all over Tyria share a common love of one thing: toys.

This year the city of Lion’s Arch will host the asuran Toymaker Tixx as their special Wintersday guest of honor. Before Tixx arrives in Lion’s Arch in his massive airship toy workshop, he’ll visit every major city in Tyria to deliver Wintersday toys and holiday cheer.
