Gamescom 2014 is over but I had a BLAST. <3
When I read that ArenaNet would have a stand at Gamecom I just utterly freaked out. This game means so much to me and to have an opportunity to meet the developers would just be a dream come true!
When we (after some searching, because Gamescom is massive) arrived there, I got cold feet for a second, but after I gathered all my courage I went up to them and chatted a little bit. It was so amazing, I was shaking in my boots haha xD
After a while I just took a deep breath and told them that because I loved this game so much, we made some cosplays and I had a businesscard with me with a picture of the Sylvari costumes. I gave it to him, and basically I was just kinda babbling like ‘uuhh yeah I’d just like you to have it, thank you for making such an awesome game, and uhh uhhh' and then he took it from me and instantly was all like 'Oh my god, Caithe and Faolain. Wait, I saw this movie on youtube - are you..?' and then I was jumping up and down like YES THAT WAS ME I WAS THAT FAOLAIN OMG THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE
He said the costumes were awesome (omfg ;__; tears of happiness) and then he was all ‘Here, follow me, oh, what is your shirt size?’
Now I have a GW2 shirt and the accompanying memory that I will treasure forever. <3
I thiiiink I wanna go back to Gamescom next year, maybe even bring a costume! :D (the con in itself was awesome by the way, even though queues were like 4+ hours the atmosphere was just so overwhelming and cool x3)
BUT THEY KNEW ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
