Official Server List

#1 Posted by Jack_Lafayette (3435 posts) -

Hitting us with a holy-shit-this-game-is-launching-and-everything twofer, ArenaNet also posted a complete list of the servers that will be available to players at launch. If you're unfamiliar with how worlds work in Guild Wars 2, I highly recommend you read this wiki page to get up to speed. Also, be a cool kid a join the Giant Bomb community's guild, Lincoln Force, on Yak's Bend.

Hell yeah 3rd on the list. Yak's Bend is going to be a heavy hitter in WvW and once shit moves over to 2 week rounds, so will we : )

Loaded the page and scrolled down because hey, Yak's Bend starts with a 'y', right? Almost had a heart attack not seeing at or near the bottom. Then I realised it wasn't in alphabetical order. Come on Arenanet, are you trying to get me killed?

I don't think Yak's Bend means what you think it means...

I did the exact same thing. Why would they put Yak's Bend third?

Be ready for queues or locked full server in head start. Just read that the Yogscast and GW2Guru guilds are rolling on Yak's Bend too.

I'm not saying we change, I think Yak's Bend will be baller, I just hope people are prepared to not be able to login to Yak's Bend during the headstart.

@New_Mandalore: Well, there's talk of free first week server changes. So if its terrible, we could switch. Also, overflow servers.

Also... Isle of Janthir. I have friends rolling there but really wanna play with Giant Bomb. :x

@New_Mandalore once you pick it at the start you will be fine. Overflow servers will do the rest. We have known that yak's would be crowded for quite some time.

Yeah I'm cool with it, I just don't want people to start getting split up. And you can play with people on any server (Isle of Janthir, for example, where the Reddit guild(s) are going) you just can't WvWvW with them. You can join a guild on any server though and be in multiple guilds (can only rep one at a time though).

I think I'm going to pick Far Shiverpeaks since there's a lot of Swedes there. Where are all the Europeans who's not picking Yak's Bend heading?
