Hey there,

As you're likely aware, we'll be having a community event during the PAX West convention. The event will take place during the evening of Sunday, September 2, at Gordon Biersch in Seattle. (This location means you will not be required to have a PAX ticket to attend the party.)

If you'd like to be considered for our random drawing to give away a few VIP tickets to the event, please respond to this thread with your best description for Guild Wars 2--in 25 words or less. It's your choice: Share a few words, offer a salient phrase or two, compose a song or haiku... whatever you'd say to share your love of the game!

All winners will be chosen randomly and will receive a single ticket to the event. (This means if you have friends who want to attend, they need to enter, too.) The entry period will end at 9:00 AM Pacific Time (-7 UTC) on Monday, August 27, 2018. We'll post a winners list below and PM the winners via the forums.

You can find full rules about the giveaway in our Legal Documentations Section.

    Quick request: Please go ahead and post your comments in this thread, rather than PMing me. Don't be shy -- nobody's going to judge, and you could score a party ticket! :)

  • My haiku:
    It is true, you know --
    I can outrun a centaur.
    Take that, Mordremoth!

  • Family, friends, festivities, good food, and some fighting... Guild Wars, it's like holiday with the family except only elder dragons get hurt. :)

    Lovely community & lovely devs. I don’t know any other game that communicates so well with it’s playerbase. 6 more years to come!

  • My typical day in GW2:

    • Dailies!
    • Get distracted by map-events!
    • Play dress-up!
    • Get anxiety looking at steps for my first Legendary.
    • Talk in map-chat!
  • Best place to hang out with the whole gang. Something for everyone to enjoy :)

    Oh jumping puzzle... how you vex me... my party is waiting for me... it must be like deja vu... just one more try!

  • It's not a mobile game!

  • I love Guild War 2. It is like walking through fine art. Such a great gameplay and a fascinating storyline.

    Wait, I wrote in a wrong forum section. Nvm :D

  • What do you get from 6 years, 4 living world stories, 2 expansions, a global PVP mode and a choya? GW2 that’s what.

  • I wanna be the very best, like no charr ever was... to poke them is my real test. To hug them is my cause. Quaggan-mon!

    I love you
    Cows say moo
    The end

  • Honestly, who needs any other race when you can be a Sylvari. raises hand I have 5 of them...Who doesn't love green? <3 <3

  • Start alone,
    Fight together.
    A nobody now,
    But a legend's forever.
    Fallen down,
    Rally back,
    Win the day,
    Loot and sack!

  • Wish I was a skilled poet! But - I love guild wars 2 because it allows for my husband and out friends to play together in a fantasy world while allowing us to spread off on our own at times to explore! Love the story line and as my husband can attest - I am addicted to running off on all of the side quests. I look forward to getting a chance to celebrate this year with you all!

  • GW2 is where you can right the many wrongs in the world and look dang cool doing it too.

  • My character is way cooler than me, executes moves flawlessly, but can still do a Death Blossom over the side of a cliff. I win!

  • Gw2 is like no other mmo on the market and that’s why I play it!

  • A game of all things: elegance, variety, casual to hardcore. Dares to realize a vision that no other game has matched for me. A must have.

  • Sango.6502Sango.6502 Member ✭✭

    This game is great and have been since it's release. Also have been to all the previous PAX West Events that Anet has been hosting!

  • No matter the place
    Jungle floor or desert sand
    We can call it home
    (Haiku)

  • My ears, how are you!
    I can outrun a centaur!
    May the Six be with you :)

    The Living World of Guild Wars 2 blazed a Path of Fire into my Heart of Thorns and it was well worth the trip.

    Guild Wars 2 rolled into my world and with it a Charr decked out with many pins attached. He is the leader and all will follow!

  • Guild Wars 2: Where you can leave the daily grind behind... and grind dailies!

  • Guild Wars 2 is the only MMO that has kept me coming back again and again for 6 years.

  • I love my Trahearne Mini, thank you Mike O'Brien!

    I would love to go, but I can't as I have school during that time.

    Anyways, here is what I come to say.

    Cheers to all
    Thrown for the greatest ball
    With love of tears
    Flowing through soil
    Foundation of wonders is grown
    Which Pleasant memories to reminisce

    Would be nice to have more hybrid plant and regular clothing for fashion wars or more plant armor.

  • Beauty and danger, love and battle, where even the smallest genius can be a hero... Guild Wars is an amazing experience.

  • GW2 is my favorite MMO! The combat and mounts are great and I like how you can progress at your own pace. Large open world group events are also fun. One day Tequatl will drop his hoard for me...

    I want to be sure to tell you that we will have a standby line at the venue. If you did not win a ticket, you should consider joining that line. If you want to have a friend or SO join you and they did not win a ticket, please tell them about the standby line in case they want to get in the line and, hopefully, get into the party.

    I haven't heard from everyone, and I did draw a "backup" list. If I haven't had a confirmation that someone from the initial winners list is attending (response here on this thread or in response to the PM I sent each winner), I'm going to imagine this means you (1) haven't checked the forums to read the thread or the PM, and therefore (2) don't know you're a ticket winner, and therefore (3) will not be attending, and therefore (4) I should move on to another winner.

    So please, if you're on the list, let me hear from you right away, no later than Thursday at 9:00 AM Pacific Time! (If you're on the list and cannot attend, please let me know that, too.)

    Alternative winners will be announced on Thursday if I haven't heard from those on the first list.

    A couple of alternate winners announced below.

    Last update, I promise! :)

    Everyone who responded to my PM in the affirmative -- that is, to accept the invitation -- has been added to the VIP List, which is now locked down.

    If you did not respond in time, or were not a random winner of a ticket, please consider joining our Standby Line the night of the event. I've been to a lot of these events, and I've seen quite a few people from the Standby List get into each one. There's no guarantee, for sure, but you may want to try for it.

    I look forward to meeting all our forum members at the event!
