1 Year celebration, is there any? I looked on the web for this but besides the normall update on 3 september, is there really no ingame 1 year party?
Somehow i was thinking there would be some kind off event or something ingame but it seems its just a mini?

pretty much. lame really. I mean, they have a bunch of events going on, but nothing to celebrate the release.

Yes there is, it's called re sale of old gem store items.

Got 8 Jennah, 8 xp scrolls, 8 boosters.. (Increased numbers brought to you by 2nd round of bday gifts)
That last one I can still use, but I only have 2 characters under lvl 20. And one of them is like 2 levels away from it anyways.

Some forge recipes would be nice, I guess.
Like 3 Jennah + 1 xp scroll = Glow in the Dark Jennah or something? If they're forcing her down our throats anyways.

No point in celebrating an anniversary if there's nothing to be happy/proud about.

Thorfinnr didn't mean forge recipes. Just that you should be allowed to throw four copies of Mini Jennah into the mistic forge to get another random rare or exotic minipet out of it. By making it forgeable people would have some use for excess Jennah Minis.

As a guess, the Queen's Jubilee and Watchwork Chaos events are part of the anniversary celebrations. Both the events appear to be quite lucrative for farmers. Perhaps the loot/ coin *is* the anniversary present for us all. Anyway, I think the staff must be too caught up with these updates to provide much else in terms of an in-game party.

To be fair, they did lose some manpower this month.
It's okay to enjoy crap if you're willing to admit it's crap.
Every patch is like ArenaNet walking out onto the stage of the International Don't Kitten Up Championship, and then proceeding to shiv itself in the stomach 30 times while screaming "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!"

A mini we yanked from existing art assets and shrunk.

Haven't they always been? The only one I can think of in either game that is likely original art is GW1's Gwen Doll.

Not that I'm defending Anet in this particular thread. Jennah is fine, I suppose. But account-bound AND we get a whole army of them? I guess its fine that they want to keep minis as gem store items, but then you'd think they'd give us something different. :unsure:

There is plenty to be proud about, even if there is more than enough to improve still.

But then again some people will never be happy.

I personally like the game a lot and log in almost every day. I think there is more than enough to celebrate.

By the way Anet is organizing things latelly and releasing content (in which chaotic manner) i think we need to celebrate they are still around. I love the game and i was avid GW1 player.....but a lot of decisions they made about GW2 are just rushed (quick patch on a gapping wound) solutions that don`t make any sense (latest would be birthday present). One Queen Jenna mini and i would say thank you very much, but more like 10 of them ???? And if we add the rest of "presents" for 1 year old characters......i just can say WTF ???

Somebody has a lot of organisation / managing problems (or just lack of skills to do mentioned).....i will not say the name.....but i bet you already know him :P !
