Community Production Coordinator, Courtney Woods, has taken to the forums to give an update for all the anxious guilds looking to attend the first Guild Summit in Austin. Applications are being reviewed and every guild that applied can expect a response in the next few days.
She goes on to say that there is A New Hope (I couldn't resist) for those unable to attend. Select events during the Guild Summit will be livestreamed, allowing players from all over the world to enjoy and participate in some of the event discussions. The only real restriction is that the livestream will only be available in English. However, the silver lining is that according to a tweet by Stephen Reid, the livestream of the Summit won't cost you anything. So if you aren't some of the lucky few invited to this event, you still won't miss out on all the summit discussions.
