When I try to buy gems using either paypal or online banking (only options available to me), once I get to the confirmation screen and click confirm, I get taken back to the start with a vague error massage that shows for 1/2 second saying "an error has occurred."
I have been able to buy gems in the past just fine. This problem is here for at least 3 days (that is when I tried to buy gems), but it could be much longer.
I really want to gem some of the limited time stuff from the gem store, so I thought about those retail gem cards that can be redeemed, but they are unfortunately not available in my country. They are however for sale on some shady game key websites. Does anybody know if these are safe or if ANet will ban you for buying these?
Or can I expect the issue to be fixed soon? You would expect making sure people can give you their money would be top priority for most companies, right?
