Its launch manifesto encouraged players to and play their way, and ArenaNet built a game that fundamentally rewards you for playing with others. It is actually no surprise that over the final six years, Tyrians have pulled together to help push back the undead, destroy dragons, and suitable some wrongs within the true world.
The launch of ArenaNet’s Friend/Ships campaign comes at an specifically poignant moment for the Gaiscioch neighborhood. Although this neighborhood appears back at how among its members touched a lot of lives, we took some time to speak to Elisabeth Cardy, Associate Global Brand Manager at ArenaNet, about Friend/Ships and neighborhood in Guild Wars 2.
Elisabeth Cardy: We’re huge fans with the way that video games, and MMOs particularly, can bring persons together. Guild Wars 2, particularly, includes a powerful emphasis on collaborative gameplay and quite a few of its systems are made to ensure that it is normally great news to determine an additional player. Fans have already been telling us about friendships that they’ve produced around the game for so long as it really is been announced, which has usually been a really touching experience. We’ve generally mentioned that we believe the Guild Wars 2 community is one of the friendliest about, and so we were excited to take an chance to actually shine a spotlight on that, and how individuals are altering every other’s lives for the greater by means of the game.
What has the response been like so far and have you had any early highlights ?
Elisabeth Cardy: The response has been staggering! It is a delight to study via every story that gets shared. I am a sap, so it’s really tough to choose favorites because they are all so clearly critical to the people sharing them.
One of the most poignant examples friendship can transform the way we play a game was the naming of Sanctum of Rall. Are there any other examples like this that nevertheless sit with you these days?
Elisabeth Cardy: People from all over the Guild Wars 2 neighborhood have stories of people who had an impact on them like Oldroar did on the Gaiscioch community. It really is stories like these that led us to putting the guild hall monument decorations in, so that men and women could celebrate and keep in mind friends in their very own way.
