    So me and a few friends started playing with early access, and rolled on Crystal Desert. A few more friends, who lagged on buying the game, can't make characters are my server because it seems to be full all the time. Its crazy, the server was full late last night and early this morning, so there is no fluctuation in population apparently.

    Does anyone know if anet is going to make the servers bigger? Me and my friends already playing really don't want to transfer to another server, so does that mean my friends who waited are just screwed now?

    So I have a question.

    So I had an appendix surgery over the launch of the game and couldn't get on. I'm home now and want to play, however I'm kinda stuck in world selection as my guild I'm a part of is on Desolation and it's full so I can't get on it. Is there a way to do this? I know there are free transfers, is there a way to get on another and transfer to the full server or should I just make a ticket or something? Does the population ever go below "full"?

    No, it's based on accounts tied to the server, however they can play with those numbers behind the scenes to direct players to different servers or whatnot.

    The server full issue is rather annoying. I was hoping to play with guildies this weekend but as it stands, I won't be able to due to the server they're on being full every time I check.. and I'm checking hourly.

    Are you playing otherwise though? And trying the free transfer?

    My brother just got the game as a gift yesterday, and can't make a character on my server. He's pretty pissed about it too.
    Along with a couple more friends, if they can't roll on the same server with me and my friends, they might just quit before they even got a chance to start.....

    I can play on my home server of course.. but I had plans to PvE with friends this weekend. As it stands I can't because the server they're on is always full and you can't transfer to a full server. Currently only three US servers have any room.

    But can you see from within the cash shop whether you can transfer? So you're playing and checking in sometimes to see if it has gone from full to high. I'm just scared to choose another server and be stuck there forever lol.

    I wish the devs would say something about the server full issue. Its kind of annoying that the official forums aren't up either

    Now THAT is a boss fight. The way you could see it in the distance like that looked so epic. Would really get the heart pumping rushing towards that thing.

    What server would you guys recommend? I want a server with mature people, very good PVP, English talking and not a "full" server. Thanks!

    Note the name "Claw of Jormag." Jormag is an elder dragon just like Zhaitan. Yea, now you know.

    Zhaitan is more than twice as big as that dragon. That dragon is just a small dragon.

    Can't wait to see Kralkatorrik, which is the biggest Elder Dragon of them all (What we know of).

    Posting this one again because I love it.

    Random thought for people who think it's weird to just "jump in" and help people: scouts!

    I completely forgot about the scouts. "To the south east, there's some mad doctor doing crazy stuff, and a Peacemaker officer is trying to clean up after him."
    Well, my character is smart. He may not know exactly what's going on, but he can figure it out!


    I say this because I finally, months later, took the time to check TotalBiscuit's channel, and realized his most recent GW2 video was about the final beta. So I took the time to watch it, and he basically gives his final thoughts on it.
    And I agree with a lot of what he's saying.

    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.

    Sorry for jpnoobu question, but are jumping puzzles vistas? I keep hearing about jumping puzzles but all I can think of that I've had close to that is the vistas.

    Also, still no damn Internet so I missed the free transfer stuff, so I'm stuck on a polish server..woo! Newhart takes bt so long to switch over my Internet!
    Too cool for a signature

    I think "jumping puzzle" is just a general term for anything that requires you to jump a lot of places to reach your goal. Be it vistas, skill points or even hidden achievs.

    Has this been discussed? Gw2 launching in China! That sounds like a lot of potential moneys, I guess.
