Why I sold my Guild War 2 account
While Guild Wars 2 was probably the best MMORPG I’ve played in a long time, I still found myself quitting the game about 6 weeks ago. Having hit the level cap months ago I found myself doing one of 3 things; farming world bosses, World vs World and GW2 events. I tried to get into structured PvP, but I couldn’t, I’d much rather play a FPS or League of Legends when it comes to an arena type PvP game.
When it came down to it, the main reason I quit was WvW, which just wasn’t compelling enough for me to continue to login. While I immensely enjoyed it at the start, I found myself wanting to do other things other than PvP, but not on the PvE maps. Coupled with the fact that many of the bi-weekly match-ups were blow outs, I lost my drive.
I was going to wait for the major WvW update from Arenanet, but since that’s been pushed back to March I decided to just quit since nothing I really read was exactly what I was looking for. Personally I wanted to here the maps being increased in size by 3-4 times with players being able to build their own structures, perhaps player housing or guild housing, although that seems pretty far right now. So I decided I’d sell off my GW2 account, which I was able to sell for $165 on Armorybids.com.
There doesn’t seem to be a huge demand for GW2 accounts, as it took me about 2 weeks to sell it, but there are buyers out there if you’re patient. I was originally hoping for $300+ as I had 100% world completion and two sets of exotic armor, one for combat and one for gold find and lots of gold amongst other things , but as I said, there doesn’t seem to be a huge demand. However that can actually be a good thing if you want to buy an account. You can find a pretty basic level 80 account for under $50 easily if you’re looking to get into the game or switch up classes without having to level back up to 80.
