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

I wish you the best of luck with you guild !

There is somehow a question that comes in my mind about your server selection. Why did you choose one of the most popular servers such as JQ ? Don't you guys fear high server queues ?

I ask this question because my guild did the same choice and apparently, there is going to be some good guilds in there ...

I think a low pop server in a game like GW2 would be bad for the world dynamic events and would put you at a real disadvantage in WvW PVP. Overflow servers do suck when you're trying to team up but it's far better than a queue. You can level up while you wait to get in. How cool is that?

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 ?

There are overflow servers for people to join and quest when you are in a queue.

That's what I mean alright. Pretty cool huh? I don't know what happens if the overflow servers get full. But you get a notice that your server is full and are placed in an overflow server. You can still play, and there are other people there, although not necessarily your friends.

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.

Any chance we can chat from these overflow servers back to your primary server?
