Guild Wars 2 Trading Cards – Caption Competition!

February 3, 2013 - 4:46am -- Xerin
Guild Wars 2 Trading Cards

It wouldn’t be surprising to know that we here at Guild Wars 2 Hub love Guild Wars 2. Like any fan, we pine for collectors items to get our real-life hands on. As good as a Collectors Edition copy of the game or Charr plush is, we felt something a little more unique was in order. With that in mind, we set about designing and printing 8 unique trading cards. These aren’t to battle with (we all know the mesmer would win anyway) but are instead designed to be appreciated, safe in the knowledge that only 3 packs were ever made. With one pack destined for the ArenaNet offices, two are left to giveaway to our readers.

Guild Wars 2 Engineer

The cards themselves have been professionally printed, and adhere to standard trading card dimensions and paper weight. Each card showcases one of Guild Wars 2’s professions, complete with the official profession description. Lastly, on the reverse of all the cards is the Guild Wars 2 logo against a white backdrop.

The Competition

We want to keep the competition as simple and as fun as possible and having scoured our screenshot folders, found the perfect caption competition candidate. Having encountered this strange fellow many months ago, dancing in the Mists for several hours, we thought to ourselves; “Who better to champion our giveaway!”

Chuck Norris?

All you need to do is provide us with a caption for the image via comments; i.e “Shake’em baby!”. 

The funniest and most original caption will be deemed the winner. 

  • There is no restriction on the number of entries you can make. 
  • There are no geographical restrictions. 
  • The closing date for the competition is 28 February 2013. 

We wish all of you the very best of luck! 

Ten Ton Hammer and Guild Wars 2 Hub would like to send special thanks to Peppermint Printworks for their perfect printing and of course ArenaNet, for producing such incredible concept art.

Please note that to comment, you will need to register with Guild Wars 2 Hub or Ten Ton Hammer. Please also ensure you register with a valid email address so that we can contact you if you’re successful.

"I finally caught the CnD spamming asura!"

Every single forum I've used to spread anti guardian propaganda has subsequently died out on me. Coincidence? I think not!

Sacrificing chest armor to go shirtless is only to be attempted by the greatest combatants. If done right, the sun bouncing off of one's unrealistically sculpted pecs can blind entire armies.

"Though trouble may follow me, I overcome it with /dance. Beer, my spirit guide, teaches me that there's a time for boogie and a time for disco.

I listen to the music in all situations. And yet, in the past, I've been careless. I failed to bring the twelve kegs my friend Olaf asked of me. It's a party-foul I must correct in the future.

I'm a drinker, and I carry a mug that symbolizes my readiness to get down.

This is my story."
