Anyone have any predictions on this year's (2010) April Fool's joke? I wouldn't mind seeing the world maps turned upside down for a day. -Ninjatek 02:19, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

they're going to release a good balance update. –Jette 02:20, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Hah! Right - the B-team will sit out on dev work just for a day. Great idea! -Ninjatek 02:21, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
They have tried that trick before. --Dominator Matrix 02:27, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

April 1st Maintenence[edit]

Who else here thinks that this has to do with April fools? --Sageofprofession 03:15, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

it doesn't. they're upgrading the software. if there's an april fools' day joke it'll be in-game, not on the wiki. –Jette 03:33, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
You never know though. --Sageofprofession 03:36, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

oh good, I can put another knock in my keyboard: successfully trolled site admin. –Jette 03:51, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
I wouldn't call it trolling. Just poking a bit of fun. --Sage Talk 05:53, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
Nope, we're all really tiny. Eive Windgrace 07:32, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

April Fools Day 2011[edit]

I wonder what Anet has in store for us :D !!!--Rapid Sausage 11:06, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Player -> Doppleganger is my guess.--Valshia 14:50, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
nothing ... yet ... is this the surprise? there is no surprise! hah, surprise surprise![[ 09:09, 1 April 2011 (UTC)]]
You haven't read about the big Guild Wars 2 Beta Key Hunt? Get to it, and find those keys! 09:23, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
beta key hunt was last years joke, seems you´re 1 year late in your life ;) [[ 09:36, 1 April 2011 (UTC)]]
Oh, but the actual joke has got to be the greatest April Fool ever. I don't mean the font change either. – NuclearDuckie 09:40, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Lol, not unusual for me to be a year late ;) Shadowmancer was announced on Twitter yesterday. It links to List of Shadowmancer skills which links to the Beta Key Hunt. So is it old, or is that the joke? 09:46, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
The whole of GW2 Wiki is in Krytan-- 10:51, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
i was hoping for something funny in game like the last couple :PSpark-TBa 11:43, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
GW2 wiki also has the Shadowmancer as the newest profession Chaos Beserker 12:05, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
well if a fake gw2 profession is the best anet can come up with this year i am unimpressed :P he he, maybe better next year :)Spark-TBa 12:10, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Arenanet actually wasn't responsible for the Shadowmancer business. That was organised by some of the users of the wiki. – NuclearDuckie 12:37, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
ANet is responsible for the very awesome Commando, however. Though it's kind of disappointing that my character hasn't been turned into something funny this year. And frustrating that that's now the third fake GW2 profession that made me gleeful for a split second. XD [Edit 5/Apr -- just want to point out that the previous comment was written before Bane showed up ingame. I'm no longer disappointed that my char didn't turn into something funny this year. :DD] --Wormwood 13:17, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
if it was real the comando would certainly be interesting to play, i agree with you though about wanting to be turned into something :PSpark-TBa 13:41, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

finally: a chopper at embark beach with a time gate to the past (pre searing) can somebody do a new page with it and the skills you get there? [[ 15:57, 1 April 2011 (UTC)]]

April Fool's Day 2012[edit]

So people. 1st April only 2 days away. Any wacky ideas as to what this year might be? Donutdude 12:05, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Judging from the update notes we get to control a G.O.L.E.M., maybe payback for last year? 14:20, 30 March 2012 (UTC)
Sounds lame. I wish they'd stick with the original gag, changing are characters in town. We don't need any more Guild Wars 2 tie ins. Ramei Arashi 16:35, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
They'll make a funny flux for sure 17:45, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
reversing every ones title progression would be funnier 20:31, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
I bet that this year we will impersonate the annihilator golem..... --User Kyx signature Skull.gifKyx 22:18, 31 March 2012 (UTC)

On the new quest... Kill random things. Repeatedly. Hilarity ensues - drops become random. =) Cupcakes, etc. Kill the Wurms, they get bigger. Fun Fun! - Tee Wrex

We'll probably get Part 3 next year since they seem to want to do quests rather than pranks on players (update notes are as always good at least). 12:11, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

April Fool's Day is actually a Racist celebration day when Isabella and Ferdinerd killed people of Granada110.174.41.71 13:24, 1 April 2012 (UTC)

I kept waiting for them to actually implement the April Fools Updates... I mean, at this point, how badly would it hurt the game to have one day of absolute absurdity when it comes to pve at least. I mean, obvious not things like this years Shadowform, but making daggers ranged, or "mhenloading" screens, and so many other things that have come up before would be interesting at least. The gag of no updates actually occurring is kind of old. 21:26, 1 April 2012 (UTC)


Oh yes SOON -- 09:26, 7 March 2013 (UTC)
