<p>Starting tomorrow, Team ArenaNet is streaming for 24 hours to raise funds for <a target="_blank" href="https://childrensmir...rg/">Children’sMiracle Network</a>! Join us on <a target="_blank" href="http://www.twitch.tv/guildwars2/">the official <em>Guild&nbsp;Wars&nbsp;2</em> Twitch channel</a>&mdash;and in Tyria&mdash;for a marathon gaming extravaganza from noon Pacific Time (UTC-7) on November 2 to noon Pacific Time (UTC-7) on November 3. </p>
<p>With the support of our community, we were able to raise a total of $16,555 during last year’s Extra Life event. We <a href="https://www.guildwar...18/">previouslyannounced</a> this year’s plan to match community donations dollar for dollar up to that amount, but we’re raising the stakes: now we’ll match community donations up to a total of $25,000 USD! With your help, we can reach our goal and donate a total of $50,000 to Children’s Miracle Network.</p>
<h3>How You Can Help</h3>
<ul>
<li><a target="_blank" href="https://www.extra-li...864">Donate</a>to Extra Life! </li>
<li>Join <a target="_blank" href="http://extra-life.or.../arenanet">TeamArenaNet</a> as an individual, or form a sub team and become part of our Super Team. Play any games you want to help support kids.</li>
<li>Follow our <a target="_blank" href="https://twitter.com/...2">Twitter</a>,<a target="_blank" href="https://www.facebook.com/GuildWars2/">Facebook</a>, and <a target="_blank" href="https://www.instagram.com/arenanet/">Instagram</a> channels and help us spread the word!</li>
</ul>
<h3>Fun and Games</h3>
<p>Every player who logs in to <em>Guild&nbsp;Wars&nbsp;2</em> during the 24-hour livestream event will receive a special title, “The Extra Life.” And from November 2 through November 4, be sure to pick up a free Revive Orb from the Gem Store&mdash;just in case you could use an extra life of your own.</p>
<p>If we reach our $50,000 USD goal by the time the event ends, every player who logs in during the 24-hour stream will receive 50k karma, and we’ll kick off a special seven-day boon that rewards players with bonuses to experience points, magic find, WvW reward track progress, and PvP reward track progress. If we blast past that and hit $60,000 USD, we’ll also send every player who logs in during the livestream an Endless Interface Crafter Golem Tonic.</p>
<h3>Surprises and Prizes</h3>
<p>Hang out with us on Twitch to watch our team play&mdash;and to see what hijinks they get up to in their quest for support. We’ll have plenty of chat giveaways to make donation milestones special, like merchandise from <a target="_blank" href="https://www.forfansb...wars2.html">ForFans By Fans</a>; game codes for <em>Guild&nbsp;Wars&nbsp;2:&nbsp;Heart&nbsp;of&nbsp;Thorns&trade;</em> and <em>Guild&nbsp;Wars&nbsp;2:&nbsp;Path&nbsp;of&nbsp;Fire&trade;</em>; a <em>Guild&nbsp;Wars&nbsp;2:&nbsp;Path&nbsp;of&nbsp;Fire</em> poster signed by some of our amazing <a target="_blank" href="https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDCvogxNKN3ktKKrr-WOrd8a9dVT0q17f">voice actors</a>, and <em>Guild&nbsp;Wars&nbsp;2</em> memorabilia signed by ArenaNet staff. One lucky adventurer could even receive a legendary kitchen appliance rumored to have left Tyria along with the human gods! </p>
