I might not have the fastest internet connection in the world, but my download speed usually allows me to download files at the rate of up to 10 mb/s. This is not the case with Guild Wars 2, which I tried to reinstall today. The fastest download speed I've seen so far was around 300 kb/s, but the average speed is around 30-50 kb/s (download speed also drops to 0 KB/s from time to time and sometimes I'm required to restart launcher in order to make any progress). At this rate it's going to take me full week to download the whole game.
I tried adding "-assetsrv" to the shortcut with different patching servers, but there was almost no difference (I know I did it correctly, because when I've messed up IP at one time it wouldn't download anything). I also deleted GW2 appdata folder, but nothing has really changed. I know this game has lots of tiny files to download and it does affect overall speed, but I don't remember it ever being this slow!
Do you guys have any solutions? Steam and other online gaming platforms allow me downloading games at full speed, so I doubt this issue is related with my internet provider. I'll leave the game to download for the night and I'll keep you updated if anything improves. I don't have high hopes tho, because for the last 6 hours it barely had any progress.
P.S. Ofc I did restart my modem few times. Same thing with the launcher and my PC.
