By Garriott’s estimate, Guild Wars incurs 80% less support costs than NCsoft’s more traditional MMOs, like their Lineage series. There are no Game Masters in Guild Wars, wandering around the world settling disputes and helping players—and charging NCsoft by the hour.

Pretty much in that article it explains what they do in order to save/make money. Not sure how much of it is still true since the article is old.
But as long as a came is worth playing then I don't mind paying.
