Guild Wars 2 sells 2 million copies

Written by

Reading time is around minutes.

It has been around 2 weeks now since I have lost a large group of my gaming friends to this Guild Wars 2. Now it has been announced that GW2 had sold over 2 million copies after they re-launched the sales. Now you are probably wondering what I mean by re-launched? Why would anyone stop their sales if they were going so good? The answer is because they appreciate their customers. If you played Diablo III then you know what happens if you just try to sell as many copies you want in the shortest time possible, you get overcrowded servers,  all sorts of lag issues, users become unable to log in, and a bunch of angry gamers. The GW staff showed that they were ready for this, even after they had issues with swamped servers on the first day of the launch.

They decided that it is more valuable to keep their gamers happy and achieve good latency rates with less crowded servers. Soon after they hit the 1 million sales mark, ArenaNEt and NCSoft halted sales to prevent the servers becoming saturated. Everyone appreciated that, even those who were unable to buy GW2 at that moment. This is because it is always nice to see that a seller cares about quality over quantity, no matter what they are selling. Mike O'Brien, president and co-founder of ArenaNet said “Reactions from around the world justified the time and care we put into developing Guild Wars 2 and making it into the game it is today. And this is only the beginning. We’re continually fine-tuning the game to deliver the polished experience that our players expect, and we’re already working on new adventures and experiences to introduce into this truly dynamic online world.”
The game GW2 is constantly receiving huge amounts of praise for their work and move with halting sales to provide better service will surely give them even more credit. One of the best things about the game is that you don’t have a monthly subscription. When you buy the game first time that is the only money you will need to spend to play it. If you want to join this great MMO, you can buy it from their official website for $59.99, you will get the Digital edition of the game, if you want Deluxe version you will have to pay $79.99 and in return you will get certain boosts in game. For collectors there is special Collector's edition for €149.99, which includes, a 10“ Figurine of Rytlock, a 112 page Making of Guild Wars 2 book, a Best of Guild Wars 2 Soundtrack CD,  an Art Portfolio and Five Art Prints and Custom Art Frame, as well as some other digital goodies.
