I've been playing Guild Wars 2 for a couple of months and as I really wanted to know more about the lore and what happened before Guild Wars 2, I bought Guild Wars a few days ago. I was really looking forward to playing it, but the ping is so high ingame (much more than 1000ms, always varying) that it's unplayable. I have to wait for about a minute or longer when I want to accept a quest and I get disconnected a lot.
It's definetely not a problem with my internet connection. My ping is always great in any game, I was even playing TERA with a 21ms ping while my friend tried Guild Wars again and had the same connection/ping problems as I have (same room, same network).
Does anybody know how to improve this situation or is it an issue of the servers?
EDIT: I've chosen the european server, as I am living in Germany
