Press Release: to acquire Guild Wars 2 Wiki to Acquire Guild Wars 2 Wiki Press Release to Acquire Guild Wars 2 wiki

Acquisition positions to accelerate Guild Wars 2 Wiki growth in gaming, communications and new social experiences

SEATTLE, WASH. – April 1, 2014 – today announced that it has reached a definitive agreement to acquire Guild Wars 2 wiki, the leader in GW2 information, for a total of approximately $2 million. This includes $400 thousand in gems and 23.1 thousand gold. The agreement also provides for an additional $300 thousand gems based on the achievement of certain milestones.

Guild Wars 2 Wiki is the leader in immersive gaming information distribution and has already built strong interest among readers with the /wiki command. While the applications for immersive gaming information distribution are in their nascent stages, several industries are already experimenting with the technology, and plans to extend Guild Wars 2 wiki’s existing advantage in gaming to new verticals, including communications, media and entertainment, education and other areas. Given these broad potential applications, immersive gaming information distribution is a strong candidate to emerge as the next social and communications platform.

“Browser is the platform of today, and now we’re also getting ready for the platforms of tomorrow,” said founder Dulfy. “Guild Wars 2 wiki has the chance to create the most revolutionary platform ever, and change the way we work, play and communicate. It will fit nicely into our ongoing projects such as PEDC* and BSS*.

“We are excited to work with Dulfy and the team to deliver the very best immersive gaming information distribution platform in the world,” said Felix Omni, a sysop of Guild Wars 2 wiki. “We believe immersive gaming information distribution will be heavily defined by social experiences that connect people in magical, new ways. It is a transformative and disruptive technology, that enables the world to experience the impossible, and it’s only just the beginning.”

Guild Wars 2 Wiki will maintain its headquarters in Seattle, WH, and will continue development of its ground-breaking immersive gaming information distribution platform.

    *gasp!* You’re supporters of PEDC and BSS?! How could you, dulfy?! I will now have to boycott your site, you terrible, terrible person!

  • sonicoffline

    It’s a day early, Dulfy.

    • Really

      Why does everyone think that America is the be all and end all of timezones? :/

      • sonicoffline

        Because America #1

        No, seriously though, I didn’t know April Fools was celebrated outside of the US, because I never had to look it up before. Apparently it is 😮

        • Natas

          It’s a German tradition 😉

          • alceleniel

            So it’s our fault? o.O Noooooo…. But yeah dulfy, take over the world… or at least the internet 😀

          • Ranique

            No it is prolly not. It’s celebrated world wide. The true origins is lost, but shorty after year 1 AD, simular festivals where reported in both India en Rome. This gives the thesis that it was taken over from yet another festival. Possible Egyptian.

      • jason wolcott

        Because the press release says “SEATTLE” and is dated April 1st.

        • shodannet

          You mean the joke press release has information that is incorrect??

        • Avai

          Everyone knows Seattle, *WH* is part of Wales.

  • MithranAkanere


  • Tharkon

    Not funny. And also, how can you talk in the past tense about something that is yet to happen, it’s not April yet in Seattle.

  • Fluffberg

    Congratulations Dulfy! You need someone who can help you? I am looking for a job!

  • Therios

    Pfft Dulfy, wondering when people will grow out of it. It’s appaling how people applaude this person when most of the work is being done by the player base but she gets the laurels, not to mention getting undeservedly rewarded with real and virtual money for basically no work at all on her part.

    Not to mention because of that site, the player base think it’s a honor to provide info to her, instead of wikipedia where people generally look for info in the first place, with every other mmo people checked wiki and all the info was there because people actively provided and updated it, but not here

    • Wow

      It’s an April fools jokes, dude.

      • JD

        ikr lol..classic foot in mouth

      • Ianpact

        OMG! You are such a mean person. I can’t believe you would let that person know how foolish their rant was…….before April 2nd. I mean, how are we suppose to make fun of them now?

  • Lol

    It’s an April Fool’s joke!

    • Ianpact


  • Ianpact

    Dudes, don’t tell people it’s a joke until the 2nd. You ruin all the chances for laughs at the expense of people who don’t think it through. 😉

    • oh

      Wait, it was a joke?

  • JD

    There was a post I was responding to that got removed mid stream. Some guy was going all emo critical on Dulfy etc etc. Without taking time to actualy read the post and notice the Date and currency used and the overall content implication. He decided he was gonna jump to some hyper conclussions and be hardcore critical lol.

  • Dystopiq

    Gasp! 😉

  • Zenalie

    You got me Dulfy 😛 Well done April Fool’s.

  • Rhiannon Frater

    And here I thought the announcement would be that the skritt are now a playable race…

    • Avai

      There’s still next year!

  • Ever


  • E

  • Lightyears


  • Mickey Frogeater

    It appears that one of King Adelbern’s commanders have bought the GW2 Wiki….
    Why didn’t the King himself buy it….

  • I’d rather post as guest

    Great news for GW2 fans, one minor correction: the abbreviation for Washington state is WA, not WH.

    • Avai

      That state abbreviation mistake must be what the April Fools prank is. The rest of this article is too legit.

  • gridlok

    Too bad it’s an April fools, would be the best thing for the wiki.

    • gw2fan

      no it wouldn’t, the wiki is great

  • Perigar

  • Ignavia

    This is definitely a worthwhile investment. I thought about using Guild Wars 2 Wiki for my own projects, seems like you outbid me there.

  • Rob
