The floodgates, as they say, have been opened. Be prepared!
I was extremely thrilled (and extremely lucky) to have been invited to the new ArenaNet office for a community FanDay event being held this Friday, June 24th. Myself and the other 16 or lucky community reps and fans are in for some crazy surprises, and the ANet crew has been more than generous with their relentless teasing and secrecy. Seriously, we have -no idea- what the devious developers have in store for us (perhaps we like it that way?…Maybe…).
While this is like a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow — the kind that only comes once every 75 years like a comet and drops ectos from the sky– myself and the others are still on a mission.
Enjoying the game and quality time with ANet certainly is up there on priorities, but we also want to try and provide the best account of the experience for all the fans out there. They’ve promised that there will be a ton of enjoyment to be had by EVERY one, and I have no doubt they will keep true to that statement.
While we’re not under any NDA, filming of gameplay is not allowed, and the CMs has already stated there will be much that cannot be answered at this time. But if you’ve got any questions or perhaps requests for more detail on something you know already exists, feel free to comment here or head over to one of the many threads and ask.
Again, we make no promises on what we can and cannot find out, but I assure you all the reps invited to the event have every intention of providing as much as we humanly can for our fellow fans.
What am I personally hoping for game-wise? PvP, hands down, and perhaps a little insight to the guild / alliance system. While a big reveal would be awesome as well, I’m a bit more curious as to the gears that will make the entire system flow. After playing the Guardian at PAX-East, I’m happy for a chance to get my hands on one of the other professions, likely the thief or necro (not engineer? Blasphemy!). I’m also looking forward to being able to possibly do some dynamic events / dungeons with my fellow fans. So many possibilities, so little time!
I’m extremely excited / grateful for this opportunity and I hope to share the experience to the best of my ability. Keep an eye out on twitter list of attendees and Anet CMs provided by Regina, the hashtag #GW2FanDay, and various fansites for updates.
To the readers: So, what would you like to know / see coming out of Fanday Friday? What do you think Anet might have in store for the attendees and the community at large? Who should I challenge to a ping-pong match?
