    I promise I will be checking these boards before logging into the beta weekend.  Hope to see a server posted and your vent or teamspeak server so we can join up!

    As for me, for "real" guilds, I find I almost never enjoy being in ones that feel the need to start up so early and develop a hierarchy or whatever and make plans and such. It makes it feel like the guild is more important than the game. And for some guilds, that span games, that's true and fine. If you like it, I am glad they are there, but I do not. So that's why I won't have a guild to go into beta with.

    Though I will be looking into where the roleplayers seem to be going.

    "There are two great powers, and they've been fighting since time began. Every advance in human life, every scrap of knowledge and wisdom and decency we have has been torn by one side from the teeth of the other. Every little increase in human freedom has been fought over ferociously between those who want us to know more and be wiser and stronger, and those who want us to obey and be humble and submit."

    My understanding is that server names are based on locations in GW1.

    North American servers are named after locations in Tyria.
    European servers are named after locations in Elona.
    Asian servers (presumably) will be named after locations in Cantha.

    This means that Istan, if it exists, is a European server. I haven't actually seen the European server list, and I've only a few of the names of the North American servers.

    Anyway, this may be worth considering. Hopefully I'll see you guys on the battlefield. I'll be on Anvil Rock.

    Also, friend and guild lists use the user name you created when you registered your pre-purchase code. Using your forum name for your character may be convenient... for those of us without numbers in our names... and for the first character. Posting your global name will be much more useful. Mine is as it is here, with a space instead of the underscore.

    Count me in ^^ Though I don't know if I will be using my forum name XD

    Oh and now Lion's Arch will be available, we could all meet up there :P

    Ah. If its an European server then I'll pass. It's too far to have a nice connection. US servers are already far enough. Haha.

    Were there ever planned Asian servers? I clearly remember there were only US and European servers. Maybe I was wrong.

    Sometimes it sucks to be in this part of the world when it comes to gaming.
    Singapore, a tropical island in South Asia, city structure like Switzerland but situated like Hawaii with the weather of the Amazon. Deadly combo. Haha.

    GREAT info - thanks!  I'll update the original post shortly to reflect this information.  Thanks Shroom Mage.

    I think we should all post our IGN here once we got in to the right server and has created a character.



    That way it makes it easier for DeaconX to invite us.

    Thank you boss! =]

    Deacon or DeaconX is fine lol.  No one likes a boss.  Unless of course, they're a bauss

    Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

    BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

  • jayartejayarte LancasterPosts: 450Member

    Very nice idea.  It would be most ... interesting to hear the voices of people who post here.

    So, is it definitely a European server we're going with?  If so, I'm in ^^ 

     

    Don't fancy running around with my forum name as my char name; I usually pick much more interesting/pleasant looking/decent shounding names for characters.  Since it's only for the beta w/ends, though, I'm sure I'll manage.

    Please check the original post for details from time to time :)

     

    There will be EU / ASIAN / NA servers so unfortunately, the community will be split up between three servers it seems.

    I'm hoping to get some good screenshots of as many members of the community here together as possible.

    Yes, I will keep checking back.  Got this thread bookmarked.  Thanks for the idea and for setting things rolling, DeaconX, and thanks also to Star for offering a vent server *hugs all round* I reckon.

     

    btw, I really like both your sigs, DeaconX, the one under your avatar and the one below your posts.  Those are viewpoints I can really relate to ^^

  • starstar Seattle, WAPosts: 1,101Member
    Kk, vent is secured. Deacon, I'll pm you the info either Thursday night or Friday morning, with a few rules.... I'll set you up with moderator privileges too.

    There are times when one must ask themselves is it my passion that truly frightens you? Or your own?

    EDIT:  Might I suggest a healthy vetting process.  Maybe dependent on peoples posting history. 

    I have never ever seen a need to play in beta with a guild.. you need to test things.. or figure out what to do to make your gameplay easier... its way better to join huge zerg beta guilds where ppl are doing the same thing instead of trying to still follow their guilds officers. Also I am guessing most guilds wont have the best showing of their guys to make it worth creating the guild. For me this is perfect for the first BWE.. if I have more guys in next BWE THEN I will make my guild and play with it.

    We're promoing this at the top of the site now. You should see it on refresh! We'll have a graphic to go with it soon, it's currently just text.

    Now I'm going to have to reinstall vent! People need to switch over to Mumble! ;)

    Keep in mind that players can join multiple guilds at a time in Guild Wars 2 (think FFXI linkshells).

    very good point and since it is just a BWE I think most of us shouldn't complain too much.

    I'm down for that if everyone else likes the idea.

    Sounds good, I'll be there :)

    I was thinking about picking up a mumble server, but this one I've had set up for ages because of my old WoW guild D:

    plus it was 9 bucks to reactivate it for the month :P

     

    edit: now that this is kinda an official thing, I might bump up the vent capacity to 100. We'll see how Friday goes.

    Do you really think we'll have 100 people?  I mean that would be awesome and ensure a lot of people can get into groups and would make for an even more amazing group screenshot :D

    I'm trying to find out if our Mumble server is still available. If so, and capacity becomes an issue, we can have you guys use that. I'll pop back in when I have more info!
