might need a new server...

I started on SBI when GW2 first launched but when it kinda died and dropped waaaaay down the rankings I ended up xfering to TC. Been gone for at least a year and now TC seems to be dropping off. Was kinda thinking about going back to SBI but dunno how it is these days. Maybe YB if I can get it drop down population wise at like 4am for a xfer.

    That exploit doesn't work anymore. Population is now based on WvW activity, mainly play-hours, averaged over something like a three week period. The only reason a server would come off Full status would be if WvW players transferred off or stopped playing so many hours en-masse.

    and not announce it =)

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

    Only 3 servers are currently locked on NA: BG, YB, and JQ in T1, T2 and T3.

    So you have plenty of options to choose from, including picking the link server to YB.

    Join NSP, 9/10 score when we have same population has other servers.. when that happens... it isnt 10/10 cause i left :expressionless:

    note: still check your time zone to see if u have players at that time before xfer.

  • Sovereign.1093Sovereign.1093 Member ✭✭✭✭

    check wvwstats.com =)

    nsp needs just one or two 20 man ocx sea eu guilds and it is set.

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

  • prolly just gonna go back to SBI.

  • SBI seems to have a good amount of players, or maybe they are all on the link (?), so you wouldn't be lonely. I think they have potential to flip between T2 and T3, which is a great place for fights.

    Every server has its ups and downs. Learn to stick with one, forge connections, work on building it back up again. Have some pride, put some actual work into something.

    I lost all sense of server pride once they abolished the LA call outs with the introduction of mega servers then further mashing us together with linkings.

    (never forget the GoM 23 week win streak)

    I don't know what sort of server OP is after, I recently transferred a few guildies over to ET and we are having a blast, we mostly focused on smaller fights though and roaming. (on the rare chance we are all logged in, the guild was made at launch and now it's a dead guild of friends still trying to build up the guild hall to be able to claim camps and what ever, HoT killed our guild after members worked so hard to build it up)

    i don't blame you buddy.
    playing on TC outside of NA is just too depressing.

    I'm sure Blackgate will open up soon. That seems to be the answer for everything population related.

  • shiri.4257shiri.4257 Member ✭✭✭

    WvW end game is waiting for Blackgate to open. stop trying so hard.

    Spectre [VII] - Wood League Champion. Making "fight guilds" stack on higher tiers since 2013.
    Michelin rated WvW guild since 2015. The gold standard. Never transferred, never reformed, adapting and reloading with or without Anet.

    OP, I think you should consider linked servers like Gate of Madness as possible transfer locations. Many of our communities are still quite active, and our transfer price is much cheaper than other servers.

  • Im back on SBI so anyway to lock this?
