Podcast #4: World vs World (Plus Beta Contest!)
Faelor grabs resident PVP experts Esloan and Luperza to break down one of Guild War 2′s most anticipated modes: World vs World. The discussion totals nearly an hour, going over the very basics, how it drew inspiration from other games, and potential problems ArenaNet could face trying to handle the behemoth at release.
In addition to bringing an always entertaining podcast, we managed to grab a beta key from PAX East! To be in the running for this contest, you need to reply to this news entry using your Facebook or Twitter account (if they are already linked to our commenting system Disqus, you’re already set!). That entry needs to be a constructive comment; describing what you liked about the podcast, why you do or do not look forward to WvW, raise a question to one of the co-hosts, etc. In addition to this, you need to follow and/or like B&C page with the same Twitter or Facebook account to be a valid entry. We will stop accepting submissions as soon as the clock strikes midnight on Friday, April 13th, PDT (UTC -7). We will use a random number generator to determine the winner and contact the individual shortly afterwards. If they do not respond within 48 hours, we will then select another winner and so on.
Today on Twitter, ArenaNet stated the beta key will only be for the next beta weekend event. This is news to the entire community, and we’re a little bummed this isn’t access for all events. If you are pre-purchasing the game (which is different than pre-ordering), you will be getting a similar beta key for all events and have no need for this. Otherwise, feel free to participate in case you are pre-ordering or would like to grab it for a friend so they can play with you! Source.
