Starting Today: World vs. World Season 1!

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on October 18, 2013

It’s almost time for the inaugural World vs. World Season! Tonight, when the weekly WvW matchups reset, the season will officially begin.

European and North American servers will be broken up into three leagues apiece. The servers within those leagues will be matched up with each other at least once over the seven weeks of the season. You can learn more about league structure and WvW Season 1 rewards from Devon Carver.

Don’t forget our recent reward change – at the end of every matchup you participate in, you’ll be rewarded with one, two, or three bonus chests based on your server’s performance, and those chests have all been updated to be more rewarding than ever! In addition, all players who complete the Premier Season Veteran achievement will be getting special rewards! Play WvW over the course of the 7-week season to complete the meta achievement and earn yourself a special title, a key to open an exclusive chest at the end of the season, and a brand-new Mini Dolyak!
