Community Events and Content:
On September 1st all across the United States, ArenaNet will be attending GameStop stores meeting with players and celebrating the launch of Guild Wars 2.
“At each event, ArenaNet employees will be on hand to sign your Guild Wars 2 games, books, and posters. We’ll also have giveaways of t-shirts, posters, and an exclusive in-game item. The giveaways are first-come-first-serve as long as our supplies hold out, but we’ll also have Guild Wars 2 quiz contests, so be sure to brush up on your knowledge of all things Tyria. Finally, we’ll hold a raffle at each GameStop location for one Guild Wars 2 Collector’s Edition.”

It looks like the award for hosting the first Guild Wars 2 tournament might go to the fellows over at Dragon Arena. They are planning on hosting a 500+ team tournament, and already over 70 teams have signed up for it. There is no official date on when the tournament will start however it is definitely something to look out for in the future.
