Guild Wars 2 April Fools’ Pranks
Yesterday was April 1st, and with it came a long string of pranks, jokes and other shenanigans. The Guild Wars 2 community was of course no different.Here are some of the pranks that were pulled:
- The Official Guild Wars 2 Wiki had a revealing “State of the Game” interview with Colin Johanson.
- ArenaNet released some interesting Update Notes for Guild Wars 1.
- Reddit renamed Guild Wars 2 to “Bovine Wars 2″ for the day.
- Guild Wars 2 Guru claimed that they would close down after the official forums were launched and most of their mods would transfer over.
- WoodenPotatoes spent an entire Guild Wars 2 Daily soliciting for likes after reaching 1 million views. (He is not asking for much..)
- GuildMag could reveal that the Guild Wars 2 console version was confirmed for release on all major consoles, and also with motion control support.
- GuildWarsInsider had a whole bunch of breaking news – the new Waterbucket elite, new sound effects, auction houses, combat system overhaul and a highly interesting change to the cash shop.
- GW2 Evolution had the scoop on PvP changes.
- Finally we here at GWOnline concocted a story that Colin Johanson had been spirited away from ArenaNet, and we also gave all our members a taste of modship for the day.
- And don’t miss MattVisual‘s video on Combat changes and motions controls, where he reacts to a lot of these breaking news…and shares his newfound love for World of Warcraft.
