GW2Hub Community Spotlight

For our latest Community Spotlight we’re going to deviate from our normal format slightly. Guest editorials, guild spotlights, and other things we’ve folded under the community spotlight umbrella will resume in the coming weeks, but as part of our Fan Appreciation Month here on GW2Hub I thought it would be fun to run an episode of the column that’s primarily focused on the awesome fans of Guild Wars 2.

Before we get started, I also wanted to announce the winner of last week’s Win a Signed Copy of GW2 giveaway. Congrats go out to kipsys who won the first of our two signed standard editions of the game! For those of you who didn’t win this time, never fear; we have a new giveaway kicking off each Wednesday this month with plenty of awesome prizes, so be sure to check back tomorrow night for details on our next giveaway.

Guild Wars 2 Community Spotlight

Some of the simplest ideas are often the finest and in this Community Spotlight, written by NikaroTheSwift, he takes a look at Thief initiative and suggests the tiniest of changes that would undoubtedly help almost all Thief players.  I don't recall ever reading such a suggestion which is why we feel it's deserving of greater attention...
