GW2 adds another NA server

SO much for the Doom Talk from the Xfire fringe.  Anet adds another NA server today "Caullie's Crossing" and we all know that a company adds servers to a dwindling population base right image

    Sanctum of Rall still thriving every night i play so no complaints on population here.. guess loads are high if they added another server. 

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Where are the other 2 new servers? If one is added, 2 more have to be added for WvWvW

    I'm also on SoR, my only complaint really is the long queues for WvW, last night I waited for over an hour before I gave up.

    Grats to them, I will recheck TSW next summer when they have alot of content under their belt (well content for all types of players and not just the kind devoted to the upper 10% of the playerbase i.e. gear grinding)  Hopefully by then there should be a ton of new quests and alternate slot 8 weapons to aquire. (and hopefully some new skills)

    Not to be the doombringer, but adding servers doesn't really mean much of anything. Its very easy to add a server in to create a false sense of security with the game. Most likely, the extra server was an overflow server that isn't needed anymore.

     

    Though the poster above brings up a good point regarding the fact that if there is a new server, what would be the other 2 so its a 1v1v1 in wvw?

  • ClawzonClawzon PitePosts: 192Member

    How many servers are there now anyway?

  • XeoMatrix00XeoMatrix00 Boynton Beach, FLPosts: 39Member

    Looks like was a bug or something i dont see the server in my list for America. Can someone check and post the info here. :)

     

    BTW i count 24 servers for America right now. 

  • JackFrostyJackFrosty Edmonton, ALPosts: 103Member

    Opening a new server one month after launch doesn't mean anything.

    How many that are still playing in 3 does.

    When I wake up, the real nightmare begins

    Cool, what's the name?  I'm glad they're recovering from their horrid launch sales and adding players.  That brings them to 6 servers for NA/EU for English and a german and french server too!

    Dunno.  I think it's over-priced, but it looks interesting.  I'm not paying subs anymore, but if I was going to keep playing a sub game it would probably be RIFT.  It just depends on what you like though.

    I like the designer of TSW, Ragnar Tornquist.  He is the creator of the Longest Journey series and is a great story-teller.

    You can do a 3 day trial.  Check their homepage.  If you complete 30 missions then they reward you with another 2 free days.  I wish the game was B2P.

    Considering the queues and the status of most servers i think was a good idea

    Sanctum of Rall is where i play as well. place is packed everywhere i go. it wasn't even as full as some of the other "higher" pop servers i saw.

    Please stop.  First it was Xfire and now its "they are adding servers to give a false sense of security"  You really sound desperate for GW2 to fail.

    Next will be GW2 is going F2P,,, wait wait it has no subs so that doesnt fit. Hmm guess have to invent some new excuses. LMAO

    I don't know why this community is so hung up on server populations. They don't mean squat. You can have every single server and overflow server so full that there are always log in queues 24/7

    Further proof the game isn't dying is that those previously added servers are increasing in population. What were previously green (light) servers during peak times are now medium or even heavy. Yes certainly server transfers could account for a portion of that, but not enough to increase the population so dramatically.

    Haters gonna hate, but an increasing population one month after release is a very good sign of potential stability down the road.

    Let us think a bit further ahead.

    With "just" high population right now, they still seem to be optimistic that a full server capable of hosting another 20-30k active and semiactive useraccounts in the next few months is neccesary.

    I guess this server is preperation for the upcoming first contentpatch of GW2. Rather than just population growth.

    Activity will spike again and then we have all the pople already dead bored from other recently hyped fads coming back.

    But all the servers are connected, you can group with anyone from any server. LFG chat in certain areas is cross server and you only need to right click there name and select an option to summon them to your dimension. Guilds, PVP, dungeons, they're all cross server.

    On topic, nice to see them adding another server. When I read through this thread and see people like "but that's 1 month after launch, come back in 3", it makes me wanna facepalm. It seems people WANT a game to fail. Give credit where it's due, and save the pessimistic speculation for yourself.

  • NBlitzNBlitz ZwollePosts: 1,904Member

    I'm happy for the NA crowd. I remember in GW1 the EU servers were not as popular as the NA ones...well at least for pre-searing stuff, which is what I did mostly.

    GW2 has the benefit of not keeping tabs on subscribers but on how many accounts there are per server. As those accounts can pop in and out at any time.

    I still don't fully get how they tally the server status though. As I've read people say it's by log-ins. Others say it's via accounts total.

    Is it any relevant? Not really. Mostly for speculation purposes.
