I was cleaning out a storage unit the other day and found a gw Christmas card I received in the mail Christmas of 06 I believe, it was hand signed by a couple dozen anet devs; the first signature I looked for was izzy, and I remember the feeling when I saw it. made me very happy (anyone who played back then remembers izzy being kinda famous for being the whipping boy of the gw community as he was the one responsible for skill balance, so every skill balance people would be mad at him for nerfing their favorite skills in both pve and pvp, and unintended consequences of buffs, breaking the game, especially in pvp.. I was kinda shocked I held onto it and didn't trash it. then again gw was and is my favorite game of all time so that why I probably kept it. I am probably gonna get it framed, the edges are still in perfect condition as it has sat in a shoe box for the last 13 years. Anyone else have any old school memorabilia that is special to them? this may sound sad but this card is honestly one of my most valued possessions as it brings back so many teenage memories.

if I remember correctly registering an ncsoft account used to be optional. so to encourage people to link their gw and ncsoft accounts they would do stuff for people who linked accounts like register them for drawings and stuff. I remember reading something online when I got it and they said they sent out like 200 or 500 (I don't remember the exact number) cards to people who linked gw and ncsoft accounts.
Looney: Massively Op did an article on it, I guess its maybe for real.

Incandescent Anon: We'll be throwing an event this weekend to celebrate the work of our departed dev Bill Freist. We'll nail down scheduling in the next few days, but keep your calendars flexible and stop by for some of the GotH and Bday Presents that will rain from the sky.

trader: Nice idea. If it gets enough attention on reddit / official forums, Bill might join himself, who knows!
