'Sanctum of Rall' ... New Server's Origins

Master10KMaster10K LondonMember Posts: 3,065

With the new shorter list of servers opening for Guild Wars 2's BWE3, there turned out to be a new name amongst them. Sanctum of Rall [NA]. And being ArenaNet, even something as insignificant as this isn't done without a reason and there actually is a fairly touching story behind the name of this new server.

    Already saw this on reddit :p

    But it's still a nice example on why Anet is my favorite company :) What other company would do this?

    Just read about that - if my guild wasn't already set up on a server, I'd be on Sanctum of Rall.  Awesome.

    Gaiscioch are mostly a good bunch. I was with them during my time in Warhammer. I am glad they named a server after him. It helps get the game attention and it bring some feel-good to the web; a real win win.

    These kinds of gestures are just plain cool.


    When I played WoW I almost always stopped and bowed to the hunter npc they created in memory of a fallen player.

    I think this attitude of developers is very important for the community feeling


    I am allways touched when i hear stories like this.

    I have already got so many people to play on the same server, not sure I want to try to switch again. But I did have good times on Phoenix Throne and Badlands back in WAR. Was easily probably the best and most competitive community I have ever been apart of in any game.

    It is cool they are doing this for OldRoar. I would probably be rolling here if it wasn't for all the coordination and convincing I have already tried to do :P

    This is a pretty neat story, plus I like the name "Sanctum of Rall" too.  I think I've found a new home server.  =)

    This made my girl tear up a bit. I thought it was a really cool thing for Anet (and any dev who does similar) to do.

    GJ guys, and r.i.p. Rall. Your friends will remember you :)

    Very awesome story.  I'll have to guest on over to Sanctum of Rall to pay my respects.
