A MMO is like life. It is something to cherish and enjoy upon in it journey. So why race to the end of it. In life at the end you die.

    That is also specified as being the list for "headstart", which implies it is not all of the servers they have planned for release.

    Still would appear that they are going with a very high server capacity.  Maybe their intent is to let overflow servers be very busy for the first few weeks so that server populations are still decent after  the mad rush passes and populations level out.

     That would be the smart thing to do.  Better to work the overflow servers hard, than have modestly populated servers where the population drops even more.

    Plus, even if the population doesn't drop, as people get higher level, the population will spread out and make each zone less populated.

    My only concern with high server caps is that there is no overflow for WvW. If caps are too high, there could be serious queues for WvW and a lot of frustrated people.

    It's a tough balancing act.

    Can't Wait, I think friends and I are rolling on world of "Jade Quarry".  No particular reason, just played on it in some of the Betas.  Here to everything going well!!

    It is indeed a tough balancing act.

    I would think it would be better to have moderate queues the first few weeks then to have ghost town WvW down the road as people return to living their life outside of the game and the population spreads out in terms of days/times played (not to mention the fact that some people really will stop playing, obviously).

    think you got it correct. IMO
