Guru's State of the Game was founded to fill a need in the absolute top of the competitive scene. A need for a place where the most experienced players can have genuine and constructive discussion with equal and like-minded people, all in a serious environment.
Where and when?
State of the Game will be a monthly stream featuring only the most competitive teams in an hour long discussion about the current state of the game. The very first event is scheduled to go live November 30th at 8 PM. GMT+1 (11 AM. PST) on the own3d.tv/gw2guru channel.
Who will be attending?
The ultimate goal will be having a steady player rotation featuring only the most competitive teams every month. We want 3-4 teams represented by 1 player at every event so we can have a varied display of experiences and views.
We have big plans for this event and want to keep it the highest possible quality not only verified by the experience of the teams that we invited but also verified by the next announcement.
I am VERY pleased to announce that for the first event we are lucky enough to not only feature the highest and most competitive players of the GW2 Scene, but we will also be joined by ArenaNet's very own PvP Developer: Jonathan “Chaplan” Sharp.
That means the attendance list will be the following:

We are currently looking for an experienced and already established interviewer to act as the host of the event. Your main job will be introducing the players and controlling and enhancing the flow of the discussion by making sure everyone gets to speak and making sure we stay on time.
So if you are an experienced shout caster/podcast maker feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org - Be sure to add some sample content and enough information to convince me why we should pick you! We do keep the right to not pick any of the applicant's if we feel the suitable quality is not met, in such a case I will be stepping in till we find someone fitting.
And for those of you who just want to support this event be sure to spread the news, participate on November 30th at 8 PM. GMT+1 (11 AM. PST) and throw us some questions in this thread that you would like us to bring up!
