Guild Wars 2 Server Selection
« on: August 23, 2012, 12:29:47 PM »
I figure that those who want to play Guild Wars 2 together will want to be sure to jump onto the same server when the game launches.  We start playing on Saturday, and I figure this should be the designated world for RPGFan:

Fort Aspenwood

See you in game!

I'd like to go with Aspen Wood if only so that I can just roll one character and not have to split between my girlfriend and playing with RPGFan folk.  That's why I suggested it to Rob.

Well, it ain't like that suggestion was written in stone, I just liked the idea of a server with a shade of green in the name for the people from the site with a green fetish. :P

Fort Aspenwood it is.

It's been a while since I played an MMORPG with RPGFan people besides Dade and Dagg, and neither of those bitches are planning to play this.

Fort Aspenwood was what I was on during the beta test anyways.

Just so you folks are aware, there's a guesting feature (which will be active after the period of free server transfer ability at launch ends) that allows you to visit and play with friends on other servers. So, beyond guilds and WvWvW, you'll be able to play the game with anyone, regardless of their server.

You also won't be able to create characters on multiple servers, I don't believe. Your account is tied to a single server as your home server. But, again, it largely won't matter due to what I mentioned above.

Good point.  The guesting feature should make life easier.  I was just trying to make things even easier on everyone.

Well, my brother got me this as an early Birthday gift, so I guess I'll be jumping in and playing with you guys! At least I don't need to worry about servers apparently.

EDIT: Crap, Fort Aspenwood's already full. Uhh, guess I'll have to hope this doesn't matter much!

My contact's Eusis.4859.

Still need to wrap my head around the game, but at least I was able to transfer over once that initial rush ended.

I started a guild called Emerald Alliance.  I'll add you guys next time I'm online.

My id is PaleRobbie.7841

It's kind of a pain to add people to the guild.  Not sure if you need the id or the character name.

Character name is Meicyn.  It's neat that character names are unique across all servers.

Well, that explains why character names seem to be running out easily, but it does make transferring less of a headache. Mine's Ultinis if people prefer to search for that, I may try to make a few more though if I really get into it.
