No, it’s not a twitter hashtag, it’s something better. A while back, redditor Demonstrative setup an IRC channel that allowed players to find groups for tournament teams, even if they’re on different servers. Since then, #gw2ringer has evolved into a hang out for both casual and competitive players alike, with members of various teams present at all hours. Launch may be over 20 days away, but if you’re looking for like-minded players to chitchat with about Guild Wars 2 PvP, then #gw2ringer might be for you.
Check after the break for instructions on connecting to #GW2Ringer.
