GW2: Server selection metagame

The amount of meta-gaming going on right now around GW2 server selection is pretty interesting. More on this post go-live, but if WvW is at all a concern to you, choose wisely (or read this blog).

  1. I wonder how my old stand-by of picking the server with hardest to spell, least pronounceable name would fly this time around?

    WvW is of no concern to me whatsoever but I would like a nice PvE-RP server. I saw the list of server names but I haven’t seen anything about whether there are specific playstyle-types attached.

    Otherwise, I played Yak’s Bend throughout beta and I’m happy to go with that again.

    There is an unofficial list of servers, indicating to where guilds and other communities (french, spanish, brazilian, etc) need go. But I am at work and cannot post a link here. From memory, I know that RP unofficial NA server is Tanished Coast.

    It would sure suck if you accidentally chose a dud PvP server and was stuck on it.

      There is no open PvP sever. PvP is server X server or sPvP. I think the worse problem is if you choose the portuguese unofficial server (or any other language, I have nothing against portuguese speaking people, I am brazilian, it is only an example, few people at USA will understand portuguese) and you don’t understand the language at the chat channel.

        you don’t need to clarify that you have nothing against any particular group here, Joao. we do a pretty good job of chasing away the PC fuckheads.

        and yeah, picking a server with the wrong language and not being able to switch would blow. one of many resons i’m waiting to watch my buddy play it for a bit before i spend any of my money.

        From what i understand Brazil are hated in LoL for acting like asses. So thanks for the heads up about Brazil being Portugese speaking.
