[Source] It is always touching to see the mega gaming corporations doing something for the community, and in this case, ArenaNet named 1 of its servers in the upcoming Final Beta Weekend after a deceased veteran gamer. Roger “Oldroar” Rall was an elderly gamer known for his willingness to help and guide his fellow guild members in RIFT. Rall was instrumental in getting his guild, Gaiscioch, to set up a branch in Guild Wars 2 after researching about the game. Sadly, his guild members found out about his death after he went offline for a couple of weeks last fall.
A letter was written to ArenaNet, and I am really pleased the developer did not make a big marketing push out of this. In fact, I am not surprised they didn’t, since ArenaNet has always done an awesome job trying to accommodate to the fan base. Online games do need more jolly folks like Roger “Oldroar” Rall though.
