Hey was wondering which server or which wvw tier has the most ocx player activity?

    For NA might be TC Mag or SI. I hopped to EU recently due to lower ping. And there were a ton more players in WvW in my time. Try this: https://pingtestlive.com/guild-wars-2
    if you are OCX to check for lower ping servers

    OCX players need to spread out more. They're always complaining about having to ktrain with nobody to fight, but then they all go ahead and stack in the same server lol

    How people judge fun after so long in game:
    Winning fights > Complaining about not having fights > Having equal fights > Bandvagoning (often to winning server) > getting shrekt

    I mean they're entitled to winning nearly all fights after spending so long in the game? Right? :3

    It's actually TC's link server SoR that provide us the numbers and SEA Tag later.

    **Edit: They are fun group of players and a cheap transfer option if you looking to get linked to different servers on re-link.
    We always love having being linked with them past and present.

    They need to lock server capacity to take only a certain amount from each timezone.

    Don't they already do that?

    Thats basically what it is happening most of the time though. I think ocx players are quite spread out. maybe too much? Because its always ktraining and ktraining and ktraining. And its getting tiring. Is there a way to find a wvw tier with high ocx activity? don't really care what servers are in it.

    OCX times just avoid the three stacks, FA BG SoS, they have enough....

    Mag, AR, BP, HoD, TC have decent ocx numbers and guilds to follow and join in, then followed by JQ SBI and DB have some ocx presence as they are primarily SEA based servers.

    Pretty sure like 80% of the OCX population is on SoS. They singlehandedly caused that server to stay in T1 for so long while they probably have a below average population during NA time.

    That's what's wrong with that server. Too many just wanting that "auto attack easy win map queue mode hard carry"..

    Oh I do hope we get linked, in nsp, with sea time playing servers. @[email protected] Or a guild of 25 active players transfer. They'd have a blast fighting 40 plus

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

    I've actually been wondering what's it like being an OCX player in EU servers. What about ping though? Is that a big problem?

    Hi Garn to me it's OK since I am in EU since beta, so I'm used to playing at this ping. I mean I could completed all challenging content in game (pve/raids) with this ping (350 to 550 ping ave) and can still play wvw... Joining a full 50 squad can be tricky but playable. I recently joined a wvw guild that moved from NA to EU.. apparently they are using VPN to reduce the ping. :)

    This ^^^^^

    SoR is a fun link and we will miss them.

    According to this, SoS is #1 for OCX on NA servers, while FS carries #1 in EU, and I believe the metric they use is activity.

    Those numbers are highly volatile. I've seen SoS drop to #9 when paired up against other strong ocx servers. This isn't to say that it's inaccurate (SoS was the original OCX server after all) but just that you should be using that data as a metric over time as opposed to a snapshot of a single week.

    I can't speak for EU, but I know on NA the big three are BG, FA and SoS. Regardless of links and the current bandwagon, these severs will always have a relevant OCX pop. (Though on BG rn, our OCX/SEA comms are more interested in playing GTA V, haven't tagged up all week...).
