This August, we invited you to enter the Crystal Desert during the preview weekend and share your adventures in the Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire™ Elonagram Screenshot Contest. Hundreds of players snapped screenshots and edited them to create captivating scenes and colorful collages, then posted them to Instagram along with a brief story about their characters’ adventures.
The entrants put a lot of work into combining characters, mounts, and environments in unique ways. The huge variety of entries depicted humorous situations and dynamic scenes, and created strong narratives with well-written captions. With so much creativity, it was hard for the judges to select only 50 winners!
The first place winner is…
Congratulations to kafei._! This screenshot captures a priestess of Kormir in the moment just before battle. The colors in the mountains, cloudy sky, and dry savanna contrast beautifully, and a compelling story brings the character to life.
The second place winner is…
Coming in a close second, rossjm93 edited several screenshots into a narrative composition. In just a few words, the caption tells the story of a former follower of Balthazar blazing his own path—to take revenge on the traitorous god.
…And even more Elonagrams!
Check out this Flickr album to admire all of the winning entries. Thank you to everyone who participated, and we hope you had as much fun creating your screenshots as we did seeing them! If you’re one of the winners, we’ll send you an Instagram direct message from the arenanet account! Keep in touch once Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire launches at the end of the week—it’s always a good day to send us an Elonagram!
