I was inspired by ArenaNet’s April Fool’s Day event. Normally, I frown upon a day that’s dedicated towards playing pranks. But today, Guild Wars was filled with fun, love and happiness. There were adorable little people running around. All the players were dressed up as Gwen. But not just a regular Gwen… it looked like a Plush Gwen.
I was thinking about giving up on the Guild Wars Fansite thing. But after seeing how my website adds to the life of the game, I became inspired. My site is going to be a mess for about a week, as I’m going back to the blog format. The forum thing just didn’t work out. The format didn’t seem to help much with adding website traffic.
As a result of this change, the Plush Gwen contest will need updating. No one was qualified to enter the contest, so it seems necessary to bring new life into the contest. Check back soon for a contest update.
Oh, and if you haven’t logged into Guild Wars today, I highly recommend it. Little Gwen dolls are running around the game. I wonder if ArenaNet is delaying the release of Guild Wars 2 to add more social aspects to their game. It’s stuff like this that I enjoy. A game that’s based only on kill… kill… kill is not going to attract a wide enough audience. MMORPGs are more immersive when they have other aspects to the game. I’ve been known to enjoy fishing and crafting.
