I'm going to go to whichever has the lowest population.. because im sure even that will get full over time..and i don't like bumping into people to often or feeling crowded in cities. There is a balance somewhere there - between arm to arm crowds and ghost towns. One of these sounds good in terms of initial low population:

• Blackgate
• Sanctum of Rall

As I've gotten older and don't have as much time to be a "hardcore" gamer..I just feel like less popular servers have more casual players that are generally more friendly and laid back. Which is more my style these days...but maybe once I get deep into PvP that might change...always have server transfer as an option.

Yeah for this kind of game i dont really see the point, of course PvP players will 99% of the time use Humans in wow due to an ability they have but too me it just doesnt seem fantasy to use a human.
Cheers, got an alarm on and at about 6pm im going to start trying biggrin.gif
what server is the guild/users going to be using?

From what I've seen most members in the Unofficial OCN guild in game are on Sorrow's Furnace and that's where I am as well. With an increased availability on the server i think it'll be easier for members to join us on there as well so I don't think it should be a problem. Once release gets closer I'll talk to Hazzeedayz about what we'll do with the guild especially since you can join more than one at a time ^_^

I am going to fight tooth and nail to get into a high pop server for this game. I have played plenty of MMO's on low pop servers for the exact reasons you list and I always find it to be far more of a hindrance. It starts out nice because you have all this space to learn by yourself and plenty of mobs to take on alone, but then raiding becomes impossible because there just isn't enough people and the AH is pricey as hell because there just aren't enough high level farmers for the whole server.

Of course a lot of this doesn't apply to GW2 because it's not that type of MMO, but my biggest worry is that lack of population could hurt the game badly. I love how hard Anet has worked to make playing with strangers and awesome experience compared to other MMO's. And I'm pretty sure PVP (except WvW) is not server based anyway so it doesn't matter which server you pick. AH is cross server too. You can even play with your friends on other servers for free and with no hassle. The only major things your server choice influences is how many people you have for WvW and how many people you have for events. I think picking a low pop at launch will be great for avoiding zergs initially, but after launch and the population spreads out people will be few and far between. A high pop server will be a messy zerg at launch, but once the population spreads out things will be much more evenly populated outside of the popular zones.

Just some thoughts on the issue from someone who plays on a lot of low pops. Maybe it's just a case of the grass always being green on the other side, but I'm done with low pops.

Everybody pile into Sorrows Furnace so that we can all WvWvW together, and not against each other.

I think the biggest problem with the ranger is just how bad they are as an actual ranged class. They're fine (maybe even slightly broken/OP) with melee weapons, but all of their ranged weapons are mediocre. Every other ranged class is stronger than the Ranger, even the Warrior with a gun is better than a Ranger with any of their ranged weapons. Also, pets are extremely buggy and non-responsive, making all of the pet abilities practically worthless in fast-paced PvP. Hopefully after the class-balancing they did between BWE2 and this upcoming beta, the Ranger's ranged weapons will be more appealing and hopefully the PC pets are finally fixed.

So why are there so many NA servers? How do you pick one?
