Guild Wars 2 Friend/Ships 2020

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on 30th January, 2020

For the third anniversary of Friend/Ships, we’re encouraging friends to reach out and start a conversation about the importance of mental health, particularly if someone you care about is going through tough times.

Have you helped a friend struggling through a difficult time, or have they supported you when you needed help? We’d love to hear your story.

You can share your story as a text post, include screenshots, or even capture it on video—it’s up to you! Tag your stories with #GW2FriendShips on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, and we’ll collect them on a special page on the official Guild Wars 2 website for the whole community to read.

(If you’re using Facebook, please share your story as a new post on our official Facebook page and not as a reply to any of our posts. We don’t want to miss it!)
