Competition – Name Our Baby Dragon


A couple of days ago ArenaNet and NCSoft were kind enough to send us some pretty cool swag for us to host contests with. We decided to pave the road that leads to the expansion’s release with a series of activities that will hopefully make everyone have fun and enjoy themselves.

For us the idea of organizing such events has always resolved around involvement. We never found contests that ask for the participants to follow and retweet them on twitter or others that require no acive input, to be that particularly interesting. That is because we never catered for the numbers. What we truly seek is interaction and several happy faces.

To kick this off then we’ll start with something simple. See, we are raising this baby Dragon of ours, that is part of Dragon Season’s logo, for almost 4 years now but we never got the chance to name it. So, what we need is your help to get this done. Comment below this post with the name you think is the most appropriate for a chance to win a Heart of Thorns lanyard. The winner will be selected from the staff of the site and once he/she’s declared godfather, they’ll have their account name credited in the About page of Dragon Season.

A couple of tips to get you started. We don’t know if the Dragon is male or female. That’s totally up to you to consider. Also, mind that the site’s name is Dragon Season so we must have had our reasons for picking this logo. We won’t share those cause we want your imagination to run wild.

Good luck to everyone. May you all have fun!

The contest will be over in a week’s time (May 8, 3pm UK) and the winner will be announced shortly after. Everyone is eligible to participate as long as they have an active address for us to sent the prize to. We have the right to delete any comment containing offensive names.

    We’ve updated our ‘About‘ page to include your name and we’ll get in touch with you through your email to let us know of your info and send you the prize.

    All in all, we hope you guys had fun coming up with these names. We know we did while going through the entries and especially reading the fluff text some of you accompanied them with. It was so nice seeing that level of affection you feel for our community.

    Before I leave you I wanted you to know that there are more contests on the way. Expect T-Shirts and other stuff and of course more lanyards to be given away. We hope to see all of you participating in them again and always remember that what matters the most is to enjoy yourselves while at it.

    1. Congrats to the winner and our little dragon’s… godfather! Autumn says thanks too 🙂
      A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who participated too!

    2. Thank you for participating!

      Hope you check out the new contest and take part in it. 😀

  3. The contest is now over. Any additional names posted won’t be taken under consideration.

    Expect the winner to be announced with a new comment here within the next few hours.

    Thanks a lot to everyone for your participation. 🙂

  4. I think that Communicerra as it relates back to the latin for community (communis), exactly what Dragon Season is and also communication/information which you’re also great with 🙂

  5. Announcement:

    Due to our site not being accessible this morning, we will be extending the contest for 24 hours.

    That means that you won’t be able to propose any more names starting from tomorrow Saturday, May 9 at 3pm UK.
