  1. A GW Experiment with numbers and the HoM part 3

    For the past few months I've been doing an experiment in Guild Wars, on the premise of "dead game is dead" I wanted to put this to the test, and just see how alive this 7 year old (6 at the time) game actually is.

    The idea was simple. Find 50 people (making sure, as best I could, they're not the same person) of random passers-by through Lion's Arch International. The only condition was that they were level 20. I also made sure I wasn't getting people with the same guild ...

  2. A GW Experiment with numbers and the HoM part 2

    A while ago, I made a blog post regarding the claim that no-one plays Guild Wars anymore, everyone has a maxed out HoM and just stands around in Kamadan all day.

  4. Events and Party dresses

    It's no secret that I like GW's events (or any game's events really). And it's no secret that I like armor. My alliance named an armor-collecting condition after me. It's called Faeitis, and its the compulsion to buy armor sets you don't need or even want. Guild Wars events give me a chance to have fun with the event itself, and have fun with how I present my character.

    At Wintersday, my characters are wrapped up snug in fluffy armor or are decorated in bright greens and vibrant ...
