    Thank you RPS, the 2014 version

    Title says it all... but OK I'll say it again: Huge thanks to all of you guys and gals that make up our GW2 community for keeping things going through 2014 (as disappointing as it was content-wise for a lot of us).

    A quick review of what happened this year (draw a deep breath, it's a long one):
    we took The World and threw it against Orr,
    we took our naked guardians and bounced an Asura around,
    I won the fashion contest (ok ok the others were cool too!),
    we did a lot of WvW (and moaned how easy it was to get the tournament cheevos in the last tournament),
    Saph taught us about the flippin' TP,
    we toured the pavilion, again and again and again,
    Malawi taught us how to gear ourselves at level 80,
    we had a wedding in the guild,
    we dominated Dry Top (and fell from the damned JP too many times),
    we started a rants thread (and we're still bitching all over the place),
    we went inside Duke's Cave of Horrors,
    we used FGS before it was nerfed to get some great speedrun times,
    we talked a lot about monitors for some reason,
    we took 5 armies and we battled,
    we decided we wanted to play something together on Saturdays and overdosed on a terrible game,
    I failed at the secret part of secret santa,
    we gave Hawks the best birthday gifts he'll ever get (he still talks to us),
    I probably forgot to mention some of the stuff we did,
    and we met in London for beer. boardgames and Tweetiti's amazing cakes quite a few times.

    So I'd say it was a pretty damned good year. Horace is pleased and wishes you happy (endless) holidays!

    Great post Noaru. I agree with all of it - we've had a fantastic year and I hope that this continues into 2015.

    I'd also like to add our successful Wurm kills to that list!

    Main character name is Seigous Bearheart. I also play on Duke Witherheart. And Lindenheart.

    Thanks Alyss - all good stuff, covers the whole year just about
    Early on we had a few great guild led Marionette kills, and between New year and Easter we ran every single dungeon path, just about in order.
    And there were some epic, and slightly scary on occasion, fractal runs, particularly once we hit the 40s - think they were mainly first part of the year
    Considering the limited new content, we had a blast

    Oh yeah... very good each one of these. Marionette was fun and frustrating at the same time, but man that corpse-explosion fractal was da bomb! We need to do that again one day.

    oh man, I miss those high level fractal runs. Shaving seconds off a dungeon path just doesn't have the same appeal.
    Marionette was good fun, I need the pavilion to come back to get some recipes - although they hadn't been returned last time around.

    Oh - I'd wiped the exploding corpse one from my memory. Shudder...
