How you feel about Diablo, that's where I'm at with GW2. I've waited for this game for a loooong time, and I'm pretty amp'd it's finally here. So many times I heard little nuggets of info here and there about it being developed, then finally went into development (which has been a long ass time), but never a real release date. Several false ones floated out, or expected ETA's that were years off.
It's just finally here...I'm totally excited and really can't wait to hit the servers on 8/25.
I'm tempted to schedule days off, but I know better...I know how launches go, and even the smoothest have hiccups that can sting if you're sitting around waiting....so, I'll hold off until its stable and then take a few days..hehheh. -- I am only one, but I am one.

August 28th, 2012 release date. Game is pretty fun from what I have played in Beta.
I'm just shooting it up in BF3 as I wait for GW2 now.
I was going to play some BF3 the other day, but I didnt feel like buying the Premium Pack. I might do it once I get my new PC. My laptop runs the game just fine at nearly maxed out settings, but I want to enjoy BF3 on 22" of man monitor. -- Jobbie told me to change my sig.
Man oh man... one has to offer his first born before even being allowed anywhere near this C9 game, and then, once the resident watchdog is installed, insist you use it's "safari" based browser which keeps you running in circles without ever getting a chance to "start" the game.
Too many hoops to jump to get from here to there. I'll keep to the old school and wait patiently.
Jaya Bluffs has a large WvW alliance going on that is quite successful. Jaya Bluffed roflstomped ever server tossed at it. I think it was 5 allied guilds spread accross AUS, US and EURO so that when one was sleeping the others kept watch in the WvW.
I just found a video for this Alliance that played on Jaya Bluffs during BWE2. The guilds in this alliance are impressive.
So, since no one has offered an alternative, Crystal Desert (as suggested by Rod) looks to be the DSLR server of choice.
I'll offer a couple. Sorrow's Furnace (never lost at WvWvW that I know of) and Darkhaven (also strong in WvWvW but lost to Sorrows Furnace (/flex)). Both servers I know will be very quick out of the gate, both will be full. Lots of strong guilds there.
