Hunger Royale Beta Weekend Event Finale was officially the most fun I’ve had yet in Guild Wars 2. …mostly because I’m a pretty huge Hunger Games fan and the nods to it made me fangirl (it was also referencing Battle Royale but my mind spent the entire time going just going hungergameshungergameshungergames).
I wish this was something they were adding into the live game and not just the beta finale. :3
MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOR~*

I want to give some props to ArenaNet today. I think they’ve done something very admirable by having a race (especially one as highly anticipated as the Sylvari) in Guild Wars 2 that practices both heterosexual and homosexual relationships. Thank you, ArenaNet, for presenting the first gay relationship I encountered in Guild Wars 2 as normal, natural, and perfectly accepted without question – just like it should be in our daily life outside of Tyria.
From the Guild Wars 2 Wiki, “Romance and sex is practiced among the sylvari, disregarding gender between those involved. To a sylvari, love is about inspiration, and it has nothing at all to do with the physical form.”
