GW2 Life In-game Item Giveaway

You might have noticed that we are in Germany, covering MMORPG news from the biggest European gaming convention. As announced before ArenaNet is not doing anything “spectacular” in terms of presentation because the game is about to launch and everyone is hard at work to make that happen. Luckily, we came across several very friendly community managers and some old Aion friends and managed to get something really exciting for you guys. As you might be aware, Arena Net is giving away in-game codes that will unlock a special item (It’s a white T-shirt with red dragon on it.) for your character once the game launches. You can obtain these if you visit Guild Wars 2 booth at Gamescom.
For those of you that are not at the show in Cologne, we managed to obtain some codes and get the item anyways. We did not get many, only four, but it’s better than nothing. The only thing you need to do is use the widget bellow and enter the giveaway by following us on twitter (you get 3 entry points for this) or leaving a comment here on the site (you get one entry point for this). The winners will be chosen at random on August 21st and notified by email so make sure you leave proper contact information when you sign into the widget. Duplicate entries will not be accepted and will be removed. Thank you all for participating and good luck.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to an unprecedented demand we are forced to end the giveaway prematurely. We initially wanted to run it for 4 days, but we had 4000 people apply within the first 8 hours. Letting this continue with only 4 keys to be given away would just be pointless, so we have decided to cut short the giveaway. We thank you all for participating and we will be contacting the lucky winners with their codes within the next 24 hours. We talked to NCSoft and we were told that a larger batch of keys will be available for us to giveaway so all of you have at least a decent chance of getting one. If we continued this giveaway, the ratio would be one key to 1000 applicants and probably 1 to 10000 within a few days. You might as well play the lottery with those odds …

  1. Thank you for doing this! I visit the website quite often but really wasn’t expecting this at all. Good luck,

  2. Thanks for the Giveaway guys! Gutted I won’t be able to see that amazing water gimmick at the GW2 booth!

  3. A random comment. kthxbai :*

    Just kidding. πŸ˜€
    T – 9 days.

    Preorder people will know.

  4. Thanks for this awesome offer! I was afraid I’d never get a chance to get my hands on a code πŸ™‚

  5. Pretty nice of you to share those additional codes you received.

    I was sad when I knew I couldn’t go to Gamescom this year. Then I felt better when Anet decided not to program something major.
    And I was sad again when they announced in-game items for those who could go there.

    But it’s okay, because you are willing to share with us all \o/

  6. Thanks for doing this! Might you guys be able to get some more for the other Days as well (If the Items you get differ from Day to Day)?!? πŸ˜€

  7. Happy to see that were getting some swag! After i saw the collectors edition stuff in action i don’t think i’m disappointed.

  8. i appreciate the opportunity to win since going to gamescom wasn’t in the cards for me. πŸ™‚

  9. I hope people who managed to attend gamescon this year are having a good time! Thanks MMORPG LIFE for doing this for us less fortunate πŸ˜€

  10. Hooray for Guild Wars 2! I certainly love this game, and hope I can get the giveaway item! πŸ˜€

  11. It’s great to see they gave away some codes for those of us (most of us) who can’t go to the convention. Thanks for doing this!

  12. Thanks guys for doing this giveaway, Its pretty crazy to think that the items might be, “Exclusive” if you can only get them from attending gamescom all the way in germany. Seeing how Anet arn’t planning any other shows any time soon this site is the best way to get the item.

  13. Thank you very much for doing this! It’s a very kind thing to do. πŸ™‚

  14. Thank you for this opportunity to get this otherwise unattainable item, for me at lease.

  15. Great idea guys. At least four of those that couldn’t go to the Gamescon will be able to get the items. Thank you!

  16. Thanks for getting the codes and offering them to those of us who could not be there. πŸ™‚

  17. Cool! I was jealous of the people who could make it to Gamescom. It’s nice to have a chance at winning one of the items.

  18. Noticed that no one actually commented. And if they did, I’m unable to view them. I hope I win, and I hope this contest goes well.

  19. Wish I could be at Gamescon! But thanks for having this giveaway for those who aren’t there!

  20. Woohoo, giveaway! I love you all, but 1 of the 4 will be mine, even if I have to use your ribcages as a ladder to fetch it.

  21. Thanks a lot for doing this for those of us that couldn’t be there in person! πŸ˜€

  22. Wow. Amazing for you to do this. I’m never able to get to these events so most of the times I have no chance of getting those cool items that just “some” people get. This is how I belive the Guild Wars 2 community will be, friendly and not selfish. After playing Guild Wars for 2,800 hours, 8 days and 16h feel like a lifetime!

    Cya on Whiteside Ridge or Far Shiverpeaks!

  23. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win these items! There’s no way I’d have access to them otherwise πŸ™‚

  24. Unfortunately I cannot attend GamesCon this year.. I’d still love to get one of those GW2 items though!

  25. Hello! thank u so mutch for doing this, it gives us that dosent have a chance to get to gamescom to still get some of them sweet codes

    – Krille

  26. I had been lurking on your site for quite some time now! I’m an avid collector, and all the guides that you guys post are legitimately top notch, so even for the BETA weekends, they’ve helped me out, genuinely, a lot.

    Thanks even more for holding this contest and keep up all the great work!

  27. Gah. Made me think if I should fly to Germany just for this, but then kinda came to my senses. Would’ve cost hundreds of euros.. πŸ˜›

  28. Thanks for this Giveaway.
    I live in chile, so there’s no way i can get a code by visiting ArenaNet at Gamescom =(

    I hope i can win something =3

  29. Woo, hope I get one πŸ˜€ .. probably wont since I never win anything like this.. πŸ™

  30. Thank you so much for this opportunity! Makes me feel so much better just knowing I at least have a chance now.

  31. This is awesome! Are there different items for every day, and what are they? I really want them πŸ˜€ This is the first time in 5 years I’m not at gamescom, and I want to have every GW2 item (HoM, Digital Deluxe, Prepurchase)

  32. Hopefully these items are just a gw2 shirt for town clothing or something along those lines.

  33. So excited to find out what these mystery items are! Thanks for the oppurtunity to enter, MMROPG Life.

  34. Thanks for doing this. I wish I could go to Germany for the event but a chance for this is awesome. (:

  35. I really wish I could go to gamescom but it is so far away. Hopefully I can win this because I wanna be a Gw2 collector of everything…

  36. You are all awesome for giving us the chance to win some cool stuff for what I hope will be many peoples Game of the Year!

  37. You guys are amazing for getting and giving aways these codes, best luck to everyone else entering, having one of those items would be really cool πŸ™‚

  38. I couldn’t make it to gamescom, so it’s nice that there is a chance to win it for those who can’t come to gamescom! ^^ I hope I’ll win a code!

  39. Must say thank you for the time you have gone to get these codes for people who aren’t at Gamescon πŸ™‚

  40. Hoping for one of these codes! Also wish I could have seen that epic waterfall display at the Gamescom booth. Good luck to everyone!

  41. I hope I get this. I hate stuff that can’t be gotten like this. Thanks for doing the giveaway!

  42. It’s great that you guys are doing this for those of us unable to travel to Cologne! Hope you guys get lots more followers and continue your success! Thanks!

  43. damn this is so cool for the real gw2 fans….have this this now marked on top of my bookmarks.
    based in ireland so no way to gamescom,i love to get one of those gw2 in-game items!!!
    kudos to ya…

  44. Thanks for the give away, really thoughtful for the rest of the community that wasn’t able to make it!

  45. Thanks so much for doing this — was really bummed when I heard about the gamescom item(s) and thought I wouldn’t be getting it/them.

  46. Guys thank you so much for doing this, and for making your website known! You have me as a reader now πŸ™‚

  47. Nearly made it to Gamescom this year, would love a code πŸ˜€ Thanks for the giveaway!

  48. Hey Thanks for this was really bummed out when I heard it was GC attendees only πŸ™‚

  49. I appreciate the fact that you guys are doing this. Hope I win; fingers crossed πŸ™‚

  50. I also wanted to visit gamescom with my sons, cause we never were in Germany, but unfortunately something came in our way, so I’m happy that we at least get the chance to win something from there too and I really appreciate this of you guys πŸ™‚

  51. I can’t tell if I love or hate this extremely-limited edition stuff. I’m pretty sure I’d love it if I got it, though.

  52. This is awesome.

    Thanks for doing this. For those of us that weren’t able to make it to Gamescom, It’s really nice to at least get a chance at getting it.

  53. siick thanks for this, its a great way to help the community to those who couldn’t go.

  54. Nice one. I remember last year my a member of my guild on Rift went and managed to grab 14 keys to give out to the guild, I was luckily to be online at the time as it was first come first serve lol.

  55. Good on you guys for giving away stuff to those of us who couldn’t make it. Good luck, everyone!

  56. I hope it’s the same white shirt that Anet employees wear. They won’t be making that shirt for sale so the only way to own one is in game.

  57. It’s great that your giving people a chance to obtain the codes the otherwise would have had no chance at.

  58. Wish I could have made it there this year. Good on you for being this awesome though!

  59. Awesome ! Thanks for doing this ! I wish i could have been to the gamescon by myself πŸ™

  60. Thanks guys it’s cool to see some people getting a chance even if they aren’t at Gamescon.
