    GW2 selling out everywhere, any help for friends who want it?

    I have friends trying to buy it but it's sold out in Amazon and in all the shops he's been in, and it's sold out on download from AN.

    Anyone know where to get a copy or when they'll send out more stock / re-open the downloading?

    Gamestop? Wal-Mart? Target?

    Best Buy too probably.

    If that doesn't work then just wait a week or so for them to reopen the digital option.

    I used to go to game stores and walmart's in less affluent areas of the city to find stuff that was "in demand."

    Poor people can't afford it.

    How on earth are digital downloads sold out? What a joke.

    I've gone to all those places and they have a ton of copies where I live. And I mean a ton. They must not stock very many where some of you live I guess.

    Here I find games at the Walmart in the more upscale area compared to the lower income area.

    It seems every game goes OOS at release recently, had a hard time finding SWTOR and D3 at release too.

    The don't have enough servers, so they are limiting digital downloads. I expect when they have added more servers they will re-enable digital sales.

    ANet disabled digital downloads to preserve server performance for existing players. Good or bad, your view may differ. I see it as a company making a decision to care for their current customers at their own expense...which is somewhat of a unique experience given the state of other developers and publishers lately.

    I didn't want GW2 that badly but a lot of my friends play it so I thought I'd give it a shot. This was 3 days ago. Digital copies have been cut, I have 4 major stores in my town that sell games (x2 EB Games, Best Buy, Future Shop), none of them have a copy, all sold out. I just straight up gave up, no GW2 for me, oh well.

    Also possible lol. They're too busy with their yacht clubs and wine mixers to play silly video games.

    Digital downloads were working from GameStop just a couple of days ago, haven't checked today. It might be a good place to start. When I got my wife's copy, it was actually $5 off too.

    We bought the last copy at a walmart and a target this weekend, you may end up finding one on a direct2drive type of website.

    you can buy from cdkey sites, my friend bought one earlier today. don't want to link them because it might be against the rules. just use google though, and make sure you pay through paypal for 100% security.

    edit: here's an official reseller I believe. only $10 more for digital at $69.99. not a bad price considering! http://www.pcgamesupply.com/buy/Guild-Wars-2-Deluxe/

    they shut it down because they couldn't handle the server load.

    Meanwhile, the Trading Post still fails to function. And some Diablo kid gets banned for making use of the only way to make decent money in the game.

    Melee isn't awful for Challenge Modes; you are. Melee players are a liability for the windows of time in which a tank keeps an enemy mob faced towards them, resulting in an exorbitant loss of damage or death. Melee players are a liability for people who keep rooting mobs next to them. Melee are a liability to a healer that cannot heal.

    Meanwhile I've never had to face an "extended maintenance" or 4 hour queues just to login and play.

    Which is worse?
