Well fuck everything
I’d contact them about this
howdy doody doo welcome back to GW2 it seems liek you haven’t thrown a shitton of money at us recently. In order to enjoy the full extent of our BS story you have to pay moooneeeyy ttteeeeeehheeeee
Except before this system came into effect (15th July) you couldn’t actually experience past LS events, so really you’re not missing out if you don’t want to pay gems to unlock them.
I don’t get what the big deal is. You’re literally no worse off. You could always try what people have suggested and log in once. Even if it’s five minutes you have it unlocked permanently.
