Installing GW2 is not the issue. The issue is "launching the game" and the download begins to download the patches. Awfully strange 80% of people having this issue it STOPS AT 35% and goes no further. It is past the playable stage and when you log on you are stuck on the loading screen for about FOREVER which means it is NOT Playable. Everyones computer cannot have the same issue, it has to be the issue of the latest patch December 17, (Wintersday). Thats when the high spike pings started and if you uninstall the game you CANNOT Install the patches.
Im hoping at this point, when Anet comes back from vacation and fixes why IT DOESNT GO PAST 35% WE CAn all enjoy the game again. So unfortunate because most of us is off from work (vacation) or out of school and would like to enjoy the game, but cant.
Anet i am pleading with you that you are all Ready to deal with this and figure out why WE ALL CANNOT INSTALL THE PATCHES PAST 35%
Hope to get back on the game and enjoy it the way I was enjoying the last 6+ years.
