According to MMOBomb, which covered the hoopla earlier this week, the campaign is partly thanks to YouTuber TheLazyPeon, whose recent videos slam Bless and praise GW2. In fact, some Redditors are calling Bless Online the best marketing campaign Guild Wars 2 has had in a long time, which isn’t really a compliment to anyone, but we doubt Anet minds too much. Other players have set up camp at the newbie spawn to welcome new players.
We suspect the big sale might also have something to do with it; according to Dulfy, using the code WelcomeToGW2 through the official store will get you Path of Fire and Heart of Thorns for 30% off. In fact, if you use our affiliate link, we get a tiny commission if you buy something. If you’d prefer not to do that, here’s the link straight to Anet. Cheers!
