Except when that was a big selling point of GW2...
So were many other aspects of the game that clearly didn't work so well...still people take Anet's word on things...
Yes, it was a selling point(in terms of marketing, not literal meaning of things) to an extent but the game was never built up that way. Even early game, BWEs were designed in such a way that if your not there then you are just assed out. Events and everything were always be there or you are missing out.
They don't literally want people leaving the game because they won't make any money. They told us pretty much it's ok to leave and come back as a hoax, they wanted you to feel like GW2 is home and stay. It's more like "yea you can leave but you'll be missing out on the action". It would be a joke for anyone to believe Anet thought it was ok for you to up and quit the game..of course they don't want that to happen.
It's just a case of telling people what they want to hear out of customer coutsey, you aren't meant to take it 100% literal. Like when someone tells you "call anytime" they don't literally mean anytime.
