Just a quick update this time around everyone. Although Christmas and Wintersday is wrapping up the holiday season is still in full swing for many of us and it is with that in mind that we have decided not to hold any events for January. To compensate for this however the events from December will have their deadline extended to Midnight on January 31st 2013 (UTC). This will not include the Monthly Events race however which will end this month as usual, it is also worth noting a monthly event race will not feature in January.
This means there is still heaps of time to get your entries in. For details on the events currently available and how to enter head on down to this post.
Enjoy your holidays and we will see you all next time!Read more & comment >>

This blog is for all those moments when people mock you for being a noob. I think it’s fair to say we’ve all been there… or at least, on either side of it. So in this holiday season, take a moment to reflect on the proper elite-noob etiquette, so we can live in a world with less drama, and more learning.Read more & comment >>
This just in: There are some administrative updates coming to the Fractals in January! A summary is below, with more details on the official site.
Weâ€™ve also made a few changes to the way party-level restrictions work. Currently, players who want to join a party are limited to the lowest fractal level in the party. This makes it difficult for lower fractal-level players to find parties, so weâ€™ve modified the party-level restrictions to allow players of any fractal level to group up. At party creation, players can choose any fractal level up to the highest fractal level in the party. Upon completion of the fractal run, all players equal to or lower than the chosen fractal level will have their fractal level increased by one. All players above the chosen fractal level will gain karma, but their fractal level will not increase. Rewards from the fractal will be based on playersâ€™ personal reward level as long as the reward level is equal to or lower than the chosen fractal level.
All this week the incgamers.com 2012 Readers’ Awards are taking place giving gamers the chance to vote for their favourite games in multiple categories. Today the MMO category is being voted for and Guild Wars 2 is included in the shortlist. Â Gamers are now being invited to vote in multiple categories so hop to it everyone.
Other categories currently open for voting include Best RPG, Best Sport, Best Strategy and Best Adventure. More will be opened up for voting this week.Read more & comment >>
