Developers of Guild Wars 2, ArenaNet, celebrated the power of gaming to bring people together with their Friend/Ships event, asking people to share stories of their online friendships forged in Guild Wars 2, and now the winners of that contest have been announced. The winners will receive discount merchandise codes, a commissioned portrait of one of their in-game characters and a trip to the ArenaNet studio in Seattle. Congratulations to the winners! For the official announcement of the contest winners, check the Guild Wars 2 News Post Here. Some of my closest friends are people I have never met.
