OCX Active Worlds?

Hello all!

I made one of these threads several months ago, but that's enough time for things to change. So I ask: which Worlds have a fairly active Oceania population?
It doesn't have to be guilds, but enough people to play with when most of America is asleep.

I am asking because I get it now, I understand why almost all Worlds tank out of the first tier. I had my first taste of the second tier and it was FUN!. I want to spend the 1,800 Gems (or less) to essentially get away from Coaldoor and enjoy World versus World again.

OCX Active Worlds:

  • Fort Aspenwood (Very High) - Medium OCX population.
  • Henge of Denravi (Medium) - Small OCX population.
  • Maguuma (Full) - Medium OCX population.
  • Northern Shiverpeaks (Very High) - Small OCX population.
  • Sea of Sorrows (Very High) - Large OCX population.
  • Yak's Bend (Full) - Large OCX Population.

  • OCX has actually been pretty active lately, with good fights between T1 -T3.
    BG, YB, SoS, FA, NSP, HoD & Mag all seems to have decent representation at the moment, although relinkings can always shift that slightly.

    I would probably recommend picking a server that drifts between tier 2-3 for some variety in match ups.

    If you Live in NA then keep in mind that day light savings has shifted OCX rallys about 2 hrs later then you used to have them.

    I am not too confident in Henge of Denravi because of it's two links. It may be one link or the other, or both, that are Oceania active. As for Blackgate: even if they lost half their population, they would still be a full server. I'll list the others though, thank you!

    NSP doesn't have much OCX at all, and FA and Mag are just average -- the other servers mentioned are basically the tier 1 rotation. The better OCX fights IMO (if you are looking for fights) are in tiers 2-3, not tier 1.

    Nine months ago I was with Henge of Denravi for a week before moving on, and Oceania numbers were rather lacking (hence leaving). However, HoD was the nicest server that I've ever joined. Are they still like that?

    I want to avoid the first tier as much as possible. It's fine if a server is occasionally stuck there for a week and are tanking out, but frequenting tier one? No thanks. I know better now.
    I'll update my list to reflect OCX populations. Thank you!

    NS doesn't tank. :) our coverage isn't as good because dh really carried some of our off time.. I miss them now, but I'm equally happy we are reunited with our sf friends.

    consider us. :)

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

    I'd like to ask, what is the atmosphere and temperament of the listed servers?

    Examples:

    • Though Sea of Sorrows has a poor kill to death ratio, they are tenacious. They are also usually friendly and light-hearted.
    • Maguuma lives for the kill are the most proficient fighters, however, they are also the most boorish and odious of personalities.

    Feel free to correct me on the examples. What I want to know is at least one positive, and one negative for each World.

  • I'm on FA, OCX.
    Pro's generally good natured people, guilds tend to work together in fights and general strategy. Lots of players for various play styles Scouts, Roamer, Havoc and Zerging .

    Con's if CREW our main OCX guild doesn't rally there probably won't be a public tag.
