Over on another thread Arachneus1 made the below comment,
"Honestly, if you do not want to represent your server to the #1 spot in the WvWvW ladder, then that is about as far as you are going to get for what your looking for"
and it got me to wondering.
I seem to recall reading somewhere that transfering between servers is going to be relatively easy/low cost? Is anyone able to confirm that or is it still under NDA/unknown?
Knowing how "some" players are, I wonder if server moves are easy and on demand if there will be a penchant for some players to migrate over to servers that are on the top end of the WvWvW ladder?
I do recall reading that there was some sort of cooling off period on the PVP side of the game with regards to transfers to reduce/eliminate this sort of behavior, but can't recall what it was. (perhaps a 3 week waiting period?)
I realize that any "true" GW2 player would never do this, they'd be interested in acheiving glory on their own merits.
But fact is, I recall during Aion that people would frequently start rerolling on servers/sides that "won" more often than not, and I wonder if we'd see the same phenomenon in GW2, where players transfered or re-rolled just to be fighting with the better players on the winning servers.
And at the end of the day, does it matter in any way outside of bragging rights whether or not one is on the #1 server (i.e. are there any special rewards for being at the top of the ladder?)
If not then perhaps the incentive to swap won't be all that great.
And if all of this has already been addressed in another thread please forgive my ignorance and I would appreciate it if you could point me the way.
In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.
