I am stating my opinion. Obviously you don't like it. Honestly, I don't care.

No idea, do you have any intel on any big-name guilds rolling on certain servers? Picking the same realm will give us a higher win rate in WvWvW.

Well, I think Good Squad is going to Maguuma from what a friend of mine says.

So, the highest pop ones look to be:

Crystal Desert (50/4)
Jade Quarry (76/3)
Sorrow's Furnace (48/3)
Tarnished Coast [RP] (79/3)

Of those, Sorrow's Furnace might be a nice balance of population and lag, or we can grab from the next tier down:

Blackgate (38/2)
Gate of Madness (40/2)
Isle of Janthir (48/1)
Yak's Bend (46/0)

Thoughts?

If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.

We need to select a high pop server, but in addition, don't we need to select a server, whose WvW enemies are high pop servers as well?

It would be bad to get into a high pop server, only to realize your WvW opponent has no one to fight you

As it stands right now, I'll be sticking with my 'mature' guild (age 30yo+) from GW1. Tons of people from all over the world. They are trying to round everyone up on EU Boreal Station but are offering NA Yak's Bend for those that wish to stay on a US server. Plus, I'm not a big pvp fan so I'm not looking for servers with big name pvp'ers.

Is there anyway to list which servers are grouped for WvW combat?

how does it work?

I don't think there's a way to sort out pve from pvp. If you guys are serious about basing your spot on a pvp server, keep in mind that people are changing constantly: »www.gw2guilds.org/movers/us

What are the chances that they lock high pop servers to try and balance out populations? If they do this, like they did in a previous BWE, chances are good that not everyone will be able to roll on the same server. Thats one of the downsides to going with a high pop server.

From what I read before, they will change so that winning servers will take on other winning servers to keep things balanced. This should happen every 2 weeks iirc.

edit:"When Guild Wars 2 launches, you will also have the option to play with your friends on another world with our free “guesting” feature. With guesting, your characters can play on any world where you have friends—with certain restrictions. For instance, you will not be able to participate in WvW while guesting." source

My fear is in us chosing a High Pop server it will be locked out for some.

Agreed, but I don't want to pay to move servers due to dead/dying server either. We need a good balance, so far looks like Deathhaven is a no-no due to huge pop, perhaps Crystal Desert?

Crystal Desert or Sorrow's Furnace look like viable choices. I'd be fine with either.

Didn't we settle this before and decide on Sorrows Anus in a different thread?

from r/guildwars2

Isle of Janthir
Originally I wasn't going to pick the Isle of Janthir because the reddit guild who were originally on the server didn't wish for the server to get completely full, this is completely understandable but having checked out their subreddit today they have decided to pick a new server.
Darkhaven
I know Darkhaven is favourite among a lot of people but it's just not practical to pick, the server is constantly full and sending even more people there will only cause issues. It's a shame we can't pick the same server we used for the entire beta phase but if we want to have a chance of playing on the same server it can't be Darkhaven
Yak's Bend
This is the Guild Wars 2 Guru and Yogscast server, this server is going to be full no matter what.
Crystal Desert
The same as Darkhaven, it's constantly full.
Gate of Madness
Apart from the Isle of Janthir this is the least full server from the shortlist.

***Looks like reddit will be on both Isle of Janthir and Gate of Madness

I'll go wherever the majority agress to go. However, noone wants to pay for server transfers. The only way to get everyone on the same server will be to pick a medium populated. Yaks, Furnace, Desert, Janthir, Darkhaven, and Madness should all be elminated. I chose Blackgate just cause of the numbers posted and kinda cool name.
