Why only one EU - EN PVE server?

ReaperUkReaperUk Cambridgeshire, UKPosts: 656Member Uncommon

There's already a thread about the imbalance in factions but why have they only allocated one English speaking PVE server for the whole of the EU? About 40% of EU citizens can speak English, which means EN servers, along with the DE servers are usually the most popular.

Our multinational but English speaking guild was set up months ago with our allied and enemy guilds listed and now we find we are delegated not only to different servers but not even to one that is listed as English speaking. Looking at the guilds that are also listed for our server, there are a whole host of Eastern European ones there too. I've had experience of multilanguage servers in previous games and it tends to lead to a lot of  friction between different people over what language should be used in general chat.

So, the whole pre made guild thing has been a complete waste of time for us.We won't be rolling on our pre designated server and have to make a choice between moving to the same one as our allies, which has a greater number of English speaking guilds, moving to one of the few EU EN PVE listed servers, or using an East coast US, server, which is what we did in beta and it worked fine.

What do other English speakers in the EU think of this?

    Can you post a link to this information?

    When i played in the beta weekend there were several EN-EU PVE servers to choose from, has something changed?

    Staggered to be honest. Are yous sure....maybe they simply pre-deployed English speaking guilds to only one server? I guess they must have pretty good metrics from pre-orders and open beta weekends.

    I got it here:

    Our guild leader has a breakdown of what guilds are on which servers too but I don't know where he got that information from.

    Your missing the point. Hydian Way is listed as EU- EN. I haven't checked all the others but the ones I have are not. They are simply listed as EU, meaning they are multi language.

    edit: It does look like the list is being updated and added to as the day goes on if Eladi's list is accurate, but at the time I last looked at Darth hater's list there was only one PVE server showing as EU -EN. I'm not counting RP ones.

    One EU-EN server for launch?  Don't be ridiculous.
