Your Vote Decides the Guild Wars 2 International All-Stars Teams!
Joshua “Grouch” Davis here, Competitive Events Manager at ArenaNet. It’s my privilege to announce that at this year’s gamescom, we’ll be partnering with our friends at Twitch.tv to bring you the Guild Wars 2 International All Stars Tournament! This exhibition match will pit top players from North America, Europe, and China against each other in the first truly global Guild Wars 2 event.
How will the All-Stars be chosen, you ask?
We’ve rounded up 32 of the top All-Star candidates from North America and Europe – and it’s your duty to decide who will represent each region at the event!
“…the first truly global Guild Wars 2 event.”
Our North American and European candidates have secured their spots on the ballot by competing in ArenaNet-sponsored events such as the Tournament of Legends, the ArenaNet PAX Prime Invitational Tournament, or other community-run events such as the Mistpedia and ESL Weekly Cups. Because the competitive scene in China is relatively new, our Chinese All-Star team has been selected by our partner, Kong Zhong, from their weekly tournament series.

Not that familiar with the competitive PvP scene? You can always discuss the candidates on the Guild Wars 2 forum or with any of your PvP-oriented friends! We’ll also be discussing the All-Star Vote during a special edition of our bi-weekly competitive Livestream, Ready Up, on Friday, July 11, at 12:00 p.m. PDT at twitch.tv/guildwars2!
You can find more information on the candidates, including player biographies, on the All-Star Voting Ballot. All-Star candidate voting will remain open for one week, ending July 17.
In addition to paid travel and accommodations for the duration of gamescom, players will be competing for in-game prizes, including a brand-new armor set exclusive to PvP tournaments! For now, this armor set will only be available to our All-Star competitors, but in the future we’ll be opening up more opportunities for players to win the right to wear this prestigious set.
Here’s a breakdown of the prizes that are up for grabs:
- First place: Each member of the first place team will receive their choice of a legendary weapon, one PvP tournament-exclusive armor set, and the First Place Trophy Finisher.
- Second place: Each member of the second place team will receive a precursor of their choice, one PvP tournament-exclusive armor set, and the Second Place Trophy Finisher.
- Third place: Each member of the third place team will receive three individual pieces of the PvP tournament-exclusive armor set, and the Third Place Trophy Finisher.
