ArenaNet isn’t ‘leafing’ us out of Guild Wars 2’s Heart of Thorns hype

    
41

A mystery box arrived on my porch today containing a cryptic message…

… and a tree.

Unfortunately for this lovely tree, I don’t have my Sylvari’s green thumb. Fortunately for me, this tree has exactly zero… ahem… thorns.

So thanks, ArenaNet! Be-leaf me, I’ll try not to let it die before launch. So who’s hyped for Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns!?

Armsbend It’s fun a toy if you’re into tinkering! He originally got one to build some accessibility tools for one of his lab students who’s blind. Now he pretty much comes up with a new idea for how to use one every damn day. At the moment, he’s trying to figure out how to rig one up with sensors to keep our dryer running when we’re not home. :P
He’s technically an astronomer, but he’s enjoying being a mad scientist for a while, I think. :D

They have to keep the hype train going.  Expansion drops next Friday.  Try marketing a game when “marketing” consists of a constant stream of blog and social media posts that various MMO and PC gaming websites repeat.  
It’s not like the good old days where you could take out ads in PC gaming magazines.  Just thank the six gods that the HoT trailer wasn’t some high concept “Your time is now” or wacky taxi cab gimmick.

Shit like this really makes me wonder if Arenanet is more about the marketing or the gaming…

Huh.
And here I’d almost forgotten how hard the ArenaNet marketing department works at deep-throating the media (I was going to say ‘media members’ but AN already beat me in the lame pun department).
Next you’re going to remind me that they primarily communicate on twitter.

I bet Colin is behind this. Look at this smile. I am 100% he thought of that pun.

You got lucky this time. For Primordus, they’ll just send you a box of fire.
