    Desolation or Far Shiverpeaks...?

    I have been on Far Shiverpeaks since bwe1, but lately shiverpeaks have failed in WvW ( i know it is betas and stress tests, but mainly the players will keep their server because they have guilds and stuff, and i think the argument '' they dont care about wvw because it's beta is invalid since many players spend time there just because it is beta and they dont want to progress trough the world etc etc), so I wonder if Desolation is any better at WvW at this moment?
    That damn french server, jade sea something is killing everything. A server with only 6 guilds registered, or something like that, run over a server with 117 registered guilds.
    Now, don't hate me for saying this, but as a ''hardcore'' player i think too many ''casuals'' (sry) move to the high pop servers because they think that population = win in WvW. why do i want to join desolation? they have more people there.. yes because 1. ive met them in WvW, 2. i dont want low pop-server.

    dont hate me for posting this. i just want to find out how Desolation have handled their WvW matches.

    cheers

    WvW in stresstests might be hard to draw conclusions from

    Even BWEs wouldn't really be a fair representation.
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    Since WvWvW is being updated every day instead of 2 weeks for awhile I think it doesn't matter.

    Keep in mind that desolation was filled up in BWE3. It's pretty unlikely it will still have room for transfers a week in.

    From what I understand most guilds at far shiverpeaks will get organized as the game launches. So I'm personally is still going there. I doubt there wont be a fighting spirit once things start to matter and people get to play for real =)

    ^^That.

    It's very unlikely that you'll be able to transfer to a high populated server after the first 2-3 days as they will fill up asap.

With that said the sylvari are made of lettuce. If I twist up some cabage leaves too look like a human, it doesnt make it monohuman.

    By nda he probly means that theyre guild alliance were trying to keep it a secret till launch.
    And as far as far shiverpeaks is concerned it i think theyre are plenty of ppl going there if you check the gwguilds.org site.
    There is a pretty decent sized dutch guild alliance being formed and several other guilds from other country's aswell going there.
    Lucky for me i got into 1 of the dutch guild today go hollanders!

    Legacy of Nosferatu on gw2guilds.org. Listed as 6048 players. They have 6000+ registered at their forums, but I have no idea if that numbers are true. Thought you had heard something, that huge guild is what's made me weary of GH, it looks to be a really good world otherwise.

    Oh and gw2guilads just added total number of "registered" players and guilds on each server. Very nice.
