Re: [GW2] Official DSLR Guild: Aftershock (SHOK) Info

Do you actually mean than when a server is "full" we will still be able to play and do some content while waiting to join the server ?

I believe that full servers won't let you create characters, but they did implement overflow servers so you can play the game while waiting to jump into your main server population.

From PC Gamer:

"ArenaNet have come up with a novel solution to server queues. As reported by Guild Wars Insider, ArenaNets Martin Kerstein revealed on the GuildWars2Guru forums that players attempting to log in to a full server will be offered an ‘overflow shard to play on instead. When a slot opens up on your chosen world, youll be given the choice to switch over with all your progress intact.

Its a great idea. BioWare argued that SW:TORs queuing was necessary to avoid launching dozens of extra servers thatd be empty only a few months after launch – something that happened to Rift. The overflow system dodges both of these problems by treating the extra server space as a strictly temporary solution.

GW2 is quickly earning its reputation as one of the most forward-thinking MMOs in development right now. Check out our Guild Wars 2 Q&A for more info and make sure you sign up for the beta while its still available."
I am stating my opinion. Obviously you don't like it. Honestly, I don't care.
