  • PvP Primer: Fort Aspenwood Cross-Training

    The official site for Guild Wars has another in their series of PvP Primers up today.

    Starting Out

    A Factions PvP arena, Fort Aspenwood offers new players an excellent chance to break into competitive play. The Fort Aspenwood environment forgives mistakes much more readily than other arenas, and it has the same party forming mechanic as Random Arenas. When you enter battle at Fort Aspenwood, you don't have to find a group—the game automatically groups you with a team.

  • Nightfall Wins Game of the Year Award

    Gamespy has posted their end of year awards. Guild Wars latest expansion Nightfall, gets Game of the Year honors.

    This year found the Guild Wars expansion-machine in full swing, with two standalone campaigns released six months apart: Factions and Nightfall. While we were very much into Factions, Nightfall edged it out in our minds. Its North African-inspired setting was extremely cool, and the two new professions introduced -- the vicious Dervish and the stalwart Paragon -- were just too cool for words.

  • National Public Radio Features Guild Wars

    The official site for Guild Wars also points us to an interview that was done on National Public Radio. The topic was Gray Gamers – Is Grandma a Gamer?

    Seniors play games differently than the industry's key 18- to 34-year-old demographic, says Nintendo's George Harrison. He says some seniors haven't played video games in years, and many spent much of their life in the pre-computer era.

  • Skill Synergy: Part Two

    The official site for Guild Wars continues their additions to the PVP Primer...

    Builds form an integral component of Guild Wars, and selecting skills is just as important as how you use those skills. Many skills act in synergy with each other and offer tons of options for combinations. We'll examine some of those opportunities in this article, and start explaining how skills work with each other and how certain types of skills can "cover" other ones.

    As with the previous primer synergy article, we move away from Training, Zaishen, and Random Arenas. However, the builds listed below work fine in Random Arenas. In fact, we suggest that you try them out in Random Arenas or a similar arena for practice. Each of these builds has a good chance of proving useful in any PvP conflict, from Hero Battles to GvG to Alliance Battles.
