At 11 a.m. EST on Saturday, February 20th, the finale of Guild Wars 2‘s first Pro League season will commence. If you’ve been eagerly anticipating the wrapup and studying the team profiles on the newly unveiled Pro League website, there’s one unavoidable conclusion: You will never be able to make fun of your father for screaming at the television during the World Series ever again, even if he is a Cubs fan. Also you should probably be ready to watch the finals yourself.
Fans located in Leicester, England, still have a chance to buy tickets to attend the event, while the rest of the world can watch via the Guild Wars 2 Twitch stream. This event marks the first ESL Pro competition taking place within an MMO. The next season will start shortly thereafter on February 23rd, but for this weekend it’s all about watching the big finale – or taking part in PvP in-game, since point gain and reward track progress are accelerated for the weekend by way of celebration.
