So I've been looking forward to playing Guild Wars 2 for a long time. I've been MMO hopping for years trying to look for that one game that can keep me coming back for more. This game truly looked like it could do that for me. However I recently found out that even if I buy the retail copy of the game, I'm still forced to download the 25gig off the internet. This I cannot do because of our bandwidth limit. We have 4 people using the internet in my house and have a relatively low cap for the amount we use up (Canadian here, shitty overpriced internet ftw) so I'm basically screwed. I won't be able to play the game because even though the retail copy comes with a disc, I still need to get the game off the internet, it makes no sense and for this one reason alone I will not be partaking a game I've looked forward too for quite a while.
Is there ANYTHING I can do at all? I could deal with the patching, but them not putting the game on the disc for people like me is kind of unfair, not everyone in the world has unlimited internet and can waste 25gigs for a video game.
