Guild Wars PvP Extreme Weekend

Guild Wars
PvP Extreme Weekend


August 23, 2005 – NCsoft
announced today

this Friday night ArenaNet is rolling out a comprehensive set of new skill
balance changes for the Guild Wars PvP play environment. Based on
intensive in-house testing and founded on player feedback and suggestions, we’re
excited about these changes and believe they will add even more fun to Guild
PvP gameplay.


As a way to celebrate,
Guild Wars
account holders will be able to participate in a three-day PvP
Extreme Weekend (PvPX). For the entire weekend, PvP play will earn players extra
faction points – 5x the faction awards for wins in high-level arenas and
tournament play and 2.5x the faction awards for wins in guild-vs-guild play.
Players can use their faction points to unlock new skills and weapon upgrades,
gain Elite skills, and purchase new runes to boost armor.


The PvP Extreme Weekend is the
perfect opportunity to allow Guild Wars players to start new PvP
characters or to improve their current characters. PvPX will begin at 12:01
am (PDT) on Friday, August 26, and will end at 11:59 pm (PDT) on Sunday, August
Account holders simply need to login with their Guild Wars
character and join in some PvP or GvG play to participate.
