You’re ready to watch!

Once you’ve linked accounts and met the watch-time goal for a reward, you’ll need to claim the reward on Twitch before it will be delivered to you in the game. You’ll get a notification in Twitch chat to claim it after you’ve met a goal, or you can claim your rewards from your Drops inventory on Twitch. Once you claim the reward on Twitch, it will be delivered to your in-game mail. You can learn more about Twitch Drops on Twitch’s help site.

*Note: Only one Twitch account can be associated with a Guild Wars 2 account for each Twitch Drops campaign. Read More

ArenaNet’s 24-Hour Extra Life Game Day Stream Is Tomorrow!

ArenaNet’s 24-Hour Extra Life Game Day Stream Is Tomorrow!

Team ArenaNet’s Extra Life Game Day is tomorrow, November 4, at noon Pacific Time (UTC-7). We’ll be streaming for 24 hours straight in support of Children’s Miracle Network. If this is your first time hearing about Extra Life, check out our previous announcement regarding the event here.

Since our last update, our running donation total has hit over $13,000 USD! Our goal this year is to raise at least $125,000 USD, bringing our lifetime total funds raised to over $625,000 USD, and we need your help to do it.

Your donations will help children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada care for ill and critically injured children whose families need support. To donate to Extra Life now, visit the Team ArenaNet page. If you’d like to help us reach our goal by streaming any game or telling your friends and family about Extra Life, choose to join Team ArenaNet when you sign up! If you want to form your own team, you can select “Create a Sub Team” when you sign up to join the ArenaNet Super Team.

The funds you raise as a member of Team ArenaNet will contribute to our overall donation total. As in previous years, if we reach the $25,000 USD donation goal, we’ll match it to bring the total donation to $50,000!
