I got some money leftover after getting 50/50 in my HoM. Therefor I'm giving some of it away. However it's not just free money. I'm gonna tie a little contest to it.

Give me your charactername (IGN), the date (DD-MM-YYYY) you think will be the releasedate of GW2. The person who is closest to the date will get 20 ecto in Guild Wars 1.

Only characters that have less then 30 points on their HoM OR don't have Obsidian armor are eligible to win.

Obviously we don't know when ArenaNet will be releasing the releasedate, so only entries up untill the official pressrelease are eligible to win. Posts edited after the pressrelease can't win. And no guessing what someone else guessed.

Since I have no need for more money, I will not participate to the contest for the prize. But my guess anyway: Release will be on the 4th day, of the 3rd week of May :-), which would be Thursday the 19th

My guess is early July. Since we need a date, I'll say 1st of July.

I don't want the rewards, I just want to participate in guessing.

21st of June I reckon.

I'll also happily take the rewards the others are letting slide if they win :wink:

Do post an IGN so I can check your hall at the moment they publish the releasedate to see if you're eligible.

I'm out for the winningz, but will guess for fun:

Let's see, The Dark Knight Rises releases July 20th--it would be awesome if they both released around the same so...-- 24-07-2012 (since game retail in US usually gets put up on Tuesdays, alongside new BR/DvD releases)--also gives me time to get TDKR out of the way beforehandz :tongue:.

I don't need the HoM stuff (I'm at 36/50 with Obby armor). I just want to guess for the heck of it.

My guess is July 31 (games are typically released on Tuesdays here in the US, unless it's Nintendo, which I think does Sunday releases...if you didn't know).

I also think late September. But I think they're more likely to release it a Thursday. So I'll guess the 27th of September.

I don't want a prize, I'm at 50/50 already :-)

Hey Jersey. You beat me to it. I independently calculated the same release date.

I'll also go with 9/27/2012. I'm 30/50 and don't have Obsidian armor, but I'll pass on the reward if correct.

I predicted it would be released on a Tuesday, which I don't think many other people did.

I am so glad I was wrong! I don't often say that, but I was figuring September / October and I had guessed way out in October. August 28th is WAY better!

Time to wrap up my HoM then and get on with being 30/50.

WOHOO ! I won ! And my guess was based on my real birthday: I chose following Tuesday... Anet didn't give me the present I wanted, but they got it close enough :D

BTW: I am usually online around 10 to 11 pm Eastern European Summer Time ( UTC/GMT +3 hours ) though in weekends almost anytime goes, just let me know when I can pick my winnings...

edit : I am most time log on my derv, Arcane Warrior Viti
