ArenaNet invites all players to share their own experiences on friendships or even relationships that have come about because of Guild Wars 2. The team kicked off this campaign by sharing the story of Nicole and Tyler, a couple that met through Guild Wars 2 and eventually became engaged.

They're calling this campaign Friend/Ships and they have some bonuses for those interested. This includes a 25% off coupon code for new purchases of the game.
ArenaNet invites all players to share their own experiences on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, or directly on the Guild Wars 2 Facebook page using #GW2FriendShips or by submitting a story directly through the campaign’s website at guildwars2.com/friendships. If they also use the hashtag #GW2Giveaway when posting, qualifying posts will be entered into a sweepstakes for the chance to win a variety of prizes! Players can also unlock a special in-game item by logging in and visiting Lion’s Arch throughout February, and gift their friends 25% off Path of Fire or The Collection by sharing the coupon code ‘GW2FRIENDSHIPS’ with them.

Visit the Friend/Ships site to check out the posts submitted so far. In the coming weeks, we’ll also shine a light on some awesome community members whose adventures together in Guild Wars 2 led to real-world connections and bonds.

Inspired to share your own story? Create a post on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, or Facebook, and include the hashtag #GW2FriendShips (if you’re using Facebook, please share your story as a new post on our official Facebook page, and not as a reply to any of our posts—otherwise, the site won’t catch them). Tagged posts will appear on the Friend/Ships site almost automagically—we’ll check to make sure posts are on-topic and that they follow our rules of conduct before they go up.

Tag your story with both #GW2FriendShips and #GW2Giveaway, and your qualifying post will be entered into our sweepstakes. You could win For Fans By Fans discount codes, a commissioned portrait of two in-game characters by one of our creative partners, or even a trip for two to our studio in Bellevue, Washington, during PAX West 2018. (We’ve got chairs for you to sit in, those little crunchy pretzels, and a cool view from the roof. We’ll also provide some other neat stuff to make the trip fun, like PAX badges for you and your traveling companion.)
