After taking a break from the game for a few months due to work, I signed back in to find that my game would crash every 10 minuets or so. I tried running a repair on the game multiple times, all of them failing to complete the repair process. So I uninstalled and deleted guild wars 2 from my computer, re downloaded the launcher, and set about re downloading the game.
I have been getting stuck at about 35% complete (just after it hits the "playable" section of the download) for about a week now. I have tried leaving it running over the course of a couple days, closing and resuming the download, and even started the whole process over a few times, but it has been consistently getting to this point in the download and then halts entirely.
I have tried playing the game in its not fully downloaded state, but it keeps crashing my game in a similar way to my original problem, so i would not say that it is even "playable" right now.
Is this a known problem on Mac? I feel like I am banging my head against a wall trying to figure this out. I have been looking through the forums here, and on reddit, and it seems that all the posts regarding this problem are from a few years ago and none of the possible solutions I have found are helping.
If someone knows how to fix this I would greatly appreciate it, as I have been really looking forward to getting back in touch with my guild mates and going on some adventures
