Final BWE - Server Selection

GW2 discussion that doesn't quite fit elsewhere

Final BWE - Server Selection

Postby Mori » Wed Jul 18, 2012 8:31 pm

Cross-posting from Facebook:

Server list is up - http://www.arena.net/blog/the-worlds-of ... kend-event

Our choice (worlds that are EU but not German or French) consists of:
Aurora Glade
Blacktide
Boreal Station
Desolation
Far Shiverpeaks
Fissure of Woe
Gandar
Gunnar's Hold
Lakeside County
Piken Square
Ring of Fire
Ruins of Surmia
Seafarer's Rest
Umbral Grotto
Underworld
Vabbi
Whiteside Ridge.

Since data is being wiped for this BWE, it's reasonable to assume we will be reselecting servers. Therefore, we need to decide where we're playing in advance. Any info on where significant online community groups are heading is appreciated to help us decide!

With assistance from this document:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1u3Q ... edit?pli=1

It looks like staying on Desolation will be a reasonable choice, provided it doesn't fill up - it's looking like one of the more popular EU servers. They have increased the server capacities, at least.

Amazon Basin isn't listed yet so... don't know where they are playing.

I don't really have a preference, the only criteria I could use at this point is who do I want to avoid?

I don't want a server that's so busy half of us end up in overflow and I don't want a server that is empty making the areas difficult and WvW a washout. However, I don't know how accurately we can judge server population at this stage. I'm sure every server will be busy at release, whether they stay that way a few months down the line is anyone's guess.

They've improved the code that puts you together with your guildmates (or at least party mates) if there IS an overflow, too.

I think and hope we'll be fine on Desolation. See you all there!

From their forum - seems they are going for Stormbluff Isle.
They are still mostly American so makes sense I guess, now that they don't have the "international" districts for the US/EU overlaps.

Ah - seems that I don't get to play this weekend, not with you lot anyway.
I had assumed that as they were ramping up numbers so much that I would have had access simply because of being there before or because of my other *ahem* activities. But seems not.
So guess I'll go play all alone elsewhere :cry:
(Still gunna try them damn ugly asura out though!)

Booo, sorry to hear that Muppet :(

*** SERVER UPDATE EVERYONE! ***

Desolation is full and some people can't get on!

The guild is therefore migrating to GANDARA.

I'll see you there as soon as I manage to log in! (Currently waiting for a response to a support ticket as I'm getting "account not authorised" errors)
