Thank You for Being Our Friends!

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on 11th April, 2018

We’d like to say thank you to everyone who submitted their stories of love and friendship in Guild Wars 2 during the Friend/Ships initiative. The site filled up with hundreds of great stories celebrating the adventures players have with their guilds, families, friends, partners, and loved ones in Tyria.

Friend/Ships was inspired by the great stories players have shared with the community ever since Guild Wars 2 launched. Some of those players were kind enough to let us film them for three spotlight videos, which we released over the course of the campaign. You can watch a compilation video below, or check out the individual blog posts to see the full videos featuring Nicole and Tyler, the [POOF] guild, and Bria and Poz.

We hope you’ll continue sharing your stories using the #GW2FriendShips hashtag on social media, because we always love to read them!

Eligible players who submitted Friend/Ships stories using the #GW2Giveaway hashtag were entered into a sweepstakes to win discount codes for Guild Wars 2 merchandise, commissioned portraits of their characters by one of our creative partners, and a trip to visit the ArenaNet studio in Seattle during PAX West 2018. Congratulations to all of the winners!
