Guild Wars 2 blocks my internet connection

Recommended Posts

So, i recently got into the game again and noticed that anytime i launched it, my Steam download would just go down to 1MB/S. No prompts or any options in Steam to throttle it that i can see. I don't even use the Steam version of the game!

I monitored the connection with the Windows Task Manager (Win11 btw) and another program and nothing even uses the Bandwidth. It seems like just launching Guild Wars 2 (specifically loading into a map) causes the System to go "Ah yeah time to block everything else from possibly using internet".

I'm not sure what even to check anymore, i set content streaming to "On Demand" but at this point i am honestly just helpful for any kind of place i could take a look here myself.

It could be a Windows setting. There is an option called "Game Mode" that prioritizes games when they are run. Deactivate it and see if that solves your issue.

I just tried that and *thought* it did work but unfortunately, nada. 😕
