hi teria happy Friday and welcome to the newest episode of guild chat I'm your host Ruby and this week we're going to take a look back because this time last week we were kicking off our 24-hour Extra Life livestream to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and I was embarking on a long journey of no sleep that ended up being very entertaining for all of you we know that it's impossible to watch a solid 24 hours of one event but our devs really stepped up and caused a lot of fun things to happen this last week during this event it's possible I'm still sleep-deprived and we wanted to make sure that you guys got to see some of the fun things that happened last week so we're going to take a look one week back in time and let you guys see some of the fun some of the highlights that we had last week first of all you the Guild Wars 2 community helped us succeed in our Extra Life efforts beyond anything that we had hoped for in extra life 2017 ArenaNet raised sixteen thousand five hundred and fifty five dollars with the help of you the community and we thought this year would be really cool if we could go past that you guys smashed that goal and then kept going to a total that we did not think was going to happen so let's take a look and see what you guys did there's like a time your life to live in Jersey oh my god they got my back all right [Applause] here we go I don't know [Music] [Music] [Applause] [Music] second - okay cool bemis neck I'm 500 EUR 500 mix I mean [Music] we reach $60,000 yes I wondered what that music was for and it's super good music that's amazing I'm like tapping my feet and like that's not chair to stay awake and to think and here's the thing is that I've like got my second wind and I don't really feel tired I'm like very energetic and I'm also very stupid what was that noise for what sorry sixty five thousand one hundred and nine dollars you guys we did it sixty five K you guys I cannot believe over sixty five thousand dollars you the Guild Wars 2 community are absolutely incredible people ArenaNet was able to up our company matching this year and match the first twenty five thousand dollars dollar for dollar so that leaves over forty thousand dollars that you all contributed to Children's Miracle Network Hospitals this is an excellent cause I know I've explained on live streams before I'm personally passionate about this but the money donated to events like extra life goes to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals which if you weren't too familiar with them this is a network of 160 or 170 hospitals throughout North America and the money that is contributed and raised through events like extra life helps pay for the care of kids with birth defects traumatic injuries long-running diseases like cancer that insurance and Medicaid does not cover so it's not financially hard on these families that are already going through something traumatic and devastating it also helps to raise money for training research into some of these diseases and pediatric medical equipment so it is a fantastic and every dollar that you as a community donated you should be incredibly proud of but as we were planning our developers who were pitching in we had over 50 people on the Iranian ed staff who worked hard to make this happen including 25 devs that got in front of the camera and did live-streaming and they wanted to make this fun for all of you and make donations not worth something because it is it's an incredibly worthy cause in and of itself but we wanted you all to have a little bit of fun along the way so in the weeks and months during our extra life planning the devs kept coming to me and saying hey what if we did this what if we did that and it led to some fantastic and hilarious moments at donation milestones that they set along the way this is perfect okay here we go oh it was almost habanero hardcore hardcore mode goggles sure yeah yeah there's only one pair so yeah I get the goggles yeah all right all right no no we did not think this through okay I'm a sitting duck if anybody wants to kill me they could easily just come here and just snipe me I feel like I'm running into a corner i I'm trying to narrate what is happening okay maybe Bobby maybe you could be my eyes and you can tell me all right run forward okay I'm doing that all right I don't know oh I think okay I'm somewhere I'm here yeah okay okay yeah so just tell me like you know just give me the direction and then I'll be fine all right I'm gonna you know you just run ahead and I'll follow Dina that you're gonna follow the blind guy I can't see it's okay okay I think we're gonna get killed really fast cuz there's like nobody over here on our team I you know what though here's the here's the thing that makes me hopeful is I haven't died yet you left me didn't you know I'm running okay alright this is cool I mean this is pretty I'm surprised that I'm alive for this long you wouldn't you wouldn't like change sides on me and then kill me would you no okay okay do not rub your eyes yeah yep Wow that one that one has this icon I did put a little extra on there it has this like I'm gonna kind of stay there for a minute it's gonna it's gonna linger well we have just been informed that your generous donations have just paid for one round of chemo or a heart monitor for a check that's awesome so helping save lives all you fine folk thank you guys we really appreciate that I will continue it as much hot sauce hot peppers or whatever whatever it takes Bobby you look fantastic my only criticism is that I can't see your glorious silver hair you wait leases from Jersey to Jersey she's an Eagles fan - wait Philadelphia no shooters - but yes you well I mean you know Jersey we don't have a there's like weird thing we're in South Jersey people like Billy teams yeah I don't like how they don't like sports I just don't follow sports yeah but that always confused me - where's like why cuz you're closer to Philly instead of Bogert Newark you know what oh he's business person see real oh Tron hey we did it that was pretty good job everyone okay okay like a fine cigar somebody donated $25 to Grady because they want you to were quick you are where's the wig do you want the the very messy one or the not as messy well yet a messy one okay here you go man thank you sorry guys give me a sec I will be keeping track of this for y'all you got it man I can't keep going oh you have a good this way again I mean it's my way maybe you should and I can take it in honor of my 9 of my baby cousin Sadie 4 years old in remission from luekemia here's some more and Healthy Kids good hands Oh oh boy I'm getting a violin someone is asking what is the strangest thing you've you create audio for the game man I mean use a lot of really strange stuff I think it's like the totally strangest thing I've used I guess the most recent strange thing we did was a very very Halloween specific we got a bunch of pumpkins and cut them open and then filled them with of liquid things so I read coconut milk and yogurt and a bunch of other stuff we could find around the office and then stuck plungers in them and there was a it was the time yep wait plungers yeah yeah that's really the most important part to be honest yeah well cos you like if you you know like you get like that suction and stuff going on and it's like like I'm not I'm sorry I shouldn't have even tried making that sound good this one actually I think it would be fun if we drew the next person to our rights we super greedy actually you can drop me okay so like okay guys you every everyone is gonna do this you have a minute starting yeah we do I have to use the glove greedy if you don't draw me well your Wow [Music] did somebody voice at your hearing it's me and sorry I must also an artist so I get to judge all these yeah you're the one who actually doesn't stuff what that's why this is you guys got ten seconds ten seconds seven five three I'm gonna see dunh show off this master okay all right well I'm on camera so my first this looks pretty bad okay that's me wait let me see it that's not simplest thing unfortunately we had a lot of fun with those shenanigans but some of us decided to take it a little bit farther and test ourselves hot-pepper live-streaming has been anything for a while so a lot of our devs wanted to do that and a couple people brought in a little game that some of us agreed to play in exchange for hitting donation milestones so let's take a look and see what else we did okay chocolate pudding or canned dog food you what was that like I don't know all right they ate all the good beans somebody said all right here we go chocolate pudding or like I don't even want a chocolate pudding bean it's the thing I don't want any of this okay Hugh hates the dog food would like there's bad beans that he likes but he really loves that dishwater no well sorry that was gross sorry y'all I've never even tried this before but I'm gonna do my best I promise where is it where is it where am I going it's you're gonna see it's over I think it's right over there I guess I won for the kids that's right oh here we go all right doing good doing great this got this no problems at all you know if people ahead of me know they're doing faster oh okay okay you know it's not too bad it's not too bad I still got this I got the green stuff coming at me though a big deal I'm doing pretty good never done this before but you know I'm still doing good still do and me like I'm the living world type of person that like event style stuff and that's what I gravitate towards so yeah this stuff is all right here we go you could do this Bobby all right let's get some donations for Bobby come on man all right here we go okay you're supposed to jump there that's it that's it you got this embrace the madness that's right all right that's as far as you got though no no no I got was so much fun I was like at the finish line in fact I probably would have won but I think we got a little lag spike or something something like weird happen and I just I couldn't we're gonna do this this stuff's a little spicy oh okay when I'm gonna have to eat this then when we jump on that like this thing over here and we wait okay here we go good okay oh my god yeah this one's got a little zip bar whoo down the hatch whoo you know I think I think the salt makes it worse ha ha No are you serious at the same spot come on whoo that one came out a little too fast Oh No killed my in action all right are we getting close we are getting closer see how generous people are I am so warmed by the humanity on display here so Clayton when did you know what you wanted to do when you grew up oh uh man I think I always knew I wanted to like entertain people in some way some fashion won't keep it going but if you want to see me or anything let us know run forward just keep running I'm gonna do it this time it's gonna work this time no regrets no God here we go so I just go down this way oh oh yeah baby oh yeah oh God okay I did make it farther 500 so cheers uh-huh Bobby I I mean this in the kindest most loving way you're insane oh yeah that's noticeably hotter than the other one Oh gonna do it I'm gonna get this tower Clay's gonna do it song I seen get me motivated when this clock tower gonna get this jumping puzzle yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah gonna get to the yet gonna get all the way this is actually really feeling like it's starting - oh so they're all right pork wait I wanted him to succeed with that puzzle so badly so donation milestone incentives the fund that the devs here to read a net came up with to make that little path along the way a little bit more fun is all about what you're willing to do and what you think you can handle for example I will never shave my head because my hair grows really slowly and I'll never recover from that so stop asking but I obviously will eat a disgusting jelly bean and stay awake for 36 hours sometimes you're willing to eat some hot peppers for you to gross jellybeans sometimes you're not up for that and you have to find another piece of fun to share especially if you want to push push yourself so a whole lot of our devs decided to do what I won't do and do things to their hair [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] so the guys had their own harrassing last year and last night I figured I would do my own so for every 200 dollars that we raised your first hour of our segment I will dye my hair a color I have up to 5 colors so you guys could get me to rainbow hair oh oh we're doing it already got 200 full all right which should we write this down sure okay okay I've been doing this while my purse really was a coatl I did the took Waddell rework that was the last time that I was on stream no it is awesome I think we had another goal did we hit another goal mark okay so we've got you to the car learners so uh Oh purple and blue whoo oh we get another goal that makes three yay my next color is orange oh wow okay that makes orange so I only have one more color and that's red and I needed four dollars to get there [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] huge shout-out by the way to every dev who participated in the head shaving and the hair shenanigans to Molina for absolutely killing the rainbow haired look as you guys can see it works on her really really well shout out to Jeb Rowe for coming in and helping with the head shaving to California couple if we got there and for being creative and doing the Catman der tag shaved into the back of his head also - Han our web programmer she was not planning on shaving her head but she saw the shenanigans happening she saw the head shaving it was like you know what I could I could totally get in on that please don't feel too bad for her she asked to shave her own head instead of having someone come in there and do it for her so I promise we weren't being mean to her we were abiding by her request but seriously shout out to every single dev who got in on the head shaving and the hair dyeing so you guys did have a little bit more fun with donations along the way something else that we did was we know that a lot of these things are really fun for all of you the head shaving the hot peppers the gross jelly beans but also it's fun to get to show off some Guild Wars 2 things because you're all here before because you love the game so showing off Guild Wars 2 content little snippets little teases giving little pieces of information on upcoming things and behind the scenes things we know are super fun for you and a lot of our devs came to me with that in mind and asked if we could show off various things like concept art the upcoming pvp maps give a little bit of information on what's coming to world vs. world and one of our teams the audio team took some time out of their schedule to come in and make a little music video for us so let's take a look at all of those little things that we showed off for the game for you all so here is some sweet concept art that I don't know the history of Tracy you can't see it so it doesn't really have ask you I mean I see the stream up there so when it goes up I can oh you guys have a big sur little bit nice is there any cool facts that we should know about this this concept there so so these are actually some of the early concept art behind the largos platforms for the second encounter so I think there's there's a set of I think two or three of these pieces for different ideas for how the water is going to push up those platforms oh yeah yeah yeah you want to go the good top right one that top right one yeah okay that one's awesome I'll show them that okay yeah yeah so Tracy why don't you tell us about this piece we have stream delay oh okay Oh shiny shiny stream delay cool beans okay for the concert amalgam its head so we're gonna try to like make the inside spew molten weaponry but that was a bit of a person so you kind of only get it during that one giant wave of death now but once upon a time all of the glowing insides were also going to be spewing glowing weapons that's often we're gonna show off another cool piece of concept art so what's uh what's fabulous is only some some of Nelly's screen here oh yeah that's some weird-looking one that is a weird looking on it looks like a big balloon it does look like a big balloon I mean I can only yeah yeah so so early on you know we're just told that the the actual center of the the mystic Forge was going to be this you know we had no real idea what that even looked like and so I kind of pleadingly asked our concept artists please give me like some idea other than you know a giant toilet as we and if you actually look up when you're doing the Kadeem fight spoilers i guess not really at this point if you look up jeff actually has a version of kind of this elaborate machine that that comes down from the the domed ceiling and is actually what does the final kind of electrical charge into the mystic forge soup so yeah so this is one version of what that could have looked like come on alright I'm glad it does not look like the underside of a toilet I think we're still having some technical difficulty I mean the juices are still swirling on there so oh thank you thank you that's a that's a wonderful idea you're right on track that sounds oh this is like yeah I'll be right back I'm gonna go and see if I can help channel Oh your little Troy your buddy for you going just hang out there I don't think it will like it's got an amazingly sculpted but but I don't think that's enough to keep it going there all right all right okay I'll just hang out up front well I have I have some concepts out on my screen if if you want to switch over to it yeah okay sweet hey maybe I wasn't looking up all the time and I missed some but okay that one on the right is like like similar to the one that we saw earlier I like that you know usually when we request concept art it's because we're trying to get an idea of what something should look like so there's usually several of like the bosses or maybe an important mechanics so again this is more of like the machine of the mystic Forge I don't know and then went full crazy and you know animated all the floors instead have we seen did we see this one but already I'm just I don't know which room to go into I'm just kind of oh I him I'm probably gonna end up dead at some point it's gonna be great right right that's how it works you have a very fancy tail now oh hey I found it I just discovered a mystic clover garden in the few weeks the tiny change to participation in well this ruler versus world excuse me but station will no longer a decay when you not in well this is what it will stop the king so if you have a partner when you participate in reverse world you accrue participation levels and when you evolve or when you go and play something else that participation currently the case it decreases it will stop the increasing so that people can come back in were also all and enjoy continue what they were doing that's a tiny little change but that's quality of life for everybody enjoying that mode [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Applause] [Music] fear not this night no still the stars will find their way first of all congratulations to the devs that were on the raid team for extra life that was a newbie raid group and they managed to crush that raid with just a little bit of time left they were super excited about that it was a complete side thing but they were really happy and it was an exciting moment to see there at the end also thanks to the PvP devs for offering up those map previews and finally a huge huge thanks to the audio team I have been humming that song for a week now I'm doing that thing where you don't even realize you're humming it and then stop and like and then start humming it again it is an incredible ear worm they spent a lot of time making that video the only thing they asked of me was that I save it for a relatively high donation milestone just to make it worth their while because they were super good sports about it so thanks to all the devs who participated and brought in ideas and brought in items and brought in assets images videos to make sure that you all had a good time along the way during our 24 hour livestream the biggest thanks goes to all of you who donated who helped us to give a huge amount of money to benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals between all of our devs who were live streaming we benefitted the Children's Miracle Network general fund and seven different Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the country
