Guild Wars 2 talks up PvP tourneys, app development challenge

ArenaNet can’t stop talking about competitive Guild Wars 2 PvP here lately, and today brings us a blog post focused on the World Tournament Series Championship. The next set of champions will be crowned at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany on August 8th.

Prior to that, there are qualifiers and ESL matches galore in which teams will need to place highly to secure an invitation to Cologne. The full post has all of the eligibility requirements as well as some verbiage about playing for $50,000 USD.

In other GW2 news, ANet has partnered with Overwolf to create a contest for coders that will reward the top 20 app developers with “over $15,000 USD in prizes.”

Welp they keep trying dont they. Lol they havent figured it out yet – what a shame.

Screw WvW and GvG what really could have been esports – especially GvG if properly supported because it happened organically by the player base we have

ESPORTZ Anet is leet!

Snore.  I always found these types of announcements to be so completely boring.  Who cares?  We’re talking about a small subset of a small subset of the game’s community.  Zzzzzzzzzz.

Greaterdivinity Wait, this is the THIRD one? I thought this was still the same.
There’s only so many apps you can make with the API tbh.

‘We want to show the world you can have a biweekly stream of updates in an mmorpg and create a true living world’

Yep.

Played gw1 since the first year, never been so disappointed with a developer. They aren’t even trying anymore.

Oh well, E-SPORTS!

They can’t stop talking about the least interesting aspect of their game.

So, no real GW2 news. No HoT news. 
The failure to communicate continues…

Is it an app that will make people care about GW2 Esports?

This is what…the third app challenge now? I feel like I’ve never heard of a single thing that’s come out of any of them.
