I'm all for giving 'Isle of Janthir' a try but I really would love to run through World vs World PvP with some old time Dark Age of Camelot vets who are rolling on Sorrow's Furnace.

  I used to play DAOC all the time, since launch in fact. If there is a chance for that I'm all for it




I am the guiding light of truth and I am the retribution of murdered allies and family members. I am the torch of honor and beacon of respect. I am the fiery might of valor and relentless defiance. I am the culmination of a thousand fears of villainy against my beliefs and those of my family. I am the conqueror of darkness and the defender of the weak. I am the pursuer of freedom and I am the stalwart last stand of an ideal.

Yea... As Joe said, I'm giving Isle of Janthir a chance this weekend to see how the server community holds up in World vs World PvP. However... looking at the list of where some communities have gone I'm not really sure but here's hoping the community of Isle of Janthir proves me wrong.

Agreed, why wasn't Tarnished picked? I thought it won the vote

Gotta have allies to win big battles like these.
There will be PLENTY.  We are way better off finding new (meaning formed for GW2) guilds composed of experienced players than dealing with long established guilds.  They'll be just as good and more inclined to be organized from the outside. And there will be plenty of the former kinds of guilds on all servers. The way this game is being marketed, it won't be noob-centric.

IMO on all counts, of course.

Isle of Janthir suddenly came out of left field :P

But home is where TG's hearth is :)

Was looking forward to Yak's Bend and Tarnished Coast though; perhaps they could be considered at a later date?

GW2 | Server Name Poll - Which one do you like?
« Reply #66 on: April 26, 2012, 08:00:26 am »
The vote for the server was never OKd by me. It was just something Nightsong posted so we know the names. Which ended up becoming something it was never supposed to be. I had changed the topic to reflect this when I realized it has become confusing as well as when I noticed what it was suggesting.

The reason the Isle was picked is because I had been in the discussion with allies in the choice. The poll was never to decide the server, it was just name liking gone very wrong.

Hope that explains it!
How yes no!

Ah, thanks very much for that Nautix, appreciate the explanation. The Isle it is! Hopefully our PvP-might can tarnish some coasts and bend some yaks. :D

Frankly, these kinds of polls are the WORST possible way to pick servers and you are just giving people reasons to be pissed if Nautix doesn't pick there server if it got a lot of votes.

QFE

While I am glad that the "this game is better than that game" bashing has ceased, now it seems as though people are acting like 3 year olds stomping their feet because they did not get their way.

It is beta. This is where we aid the developers with the game. The division lead made a choice, and before you have even seen the server and the folks on the server you whine about it and how terrible it is. (Not all, but many)

My suggestion which you can take or leave, is jump on the game this friday and have fun with it. Make us Guardians look good. Stand with the guild rather than against. Forget the mumble vs. Ventrilo mumbo jumbo and the this server is better than the rest stuff, and just enjoy the game with your friends. Report bugs and suggestions. Take screenshots to show your guildies and if we find that we need to make a change, I am sure it will happen.

So rather than Guardians complaining about the way, lets Lead the Way. :torynn:

I am completely shocked that you are not only insulting, but name calling people for voicing their opinion.

I believe that "Lead the way" also means standing up for what you believe in. I have reviewed every single forum post about this topic. Almost every single one provides a reason for why they wanted a different server. In fact, many of them said "I will go where ever TG goes BUT.." or "I love TG and will stay with the guild BUT.."

I voiced my opinion about why I thought a different server would be a good decision. Are you trying to tell me that as long as I am in The Guardians that I can never speak out against a leaders decision? I can not post my opinion?

I am sorry if this is passionate but for a grown adult, you should not be insulting your fellow Guardians for voicing their thoughts.

And to the "This is just beta" argument. The truth is, a majority of players and guilds will end up remaining on the same server for launch as they do for Beta. I am completely okay with going to the isle realm that was chosen because that is where my guild goes and I love this guild. If I want to post on our website my thoughts about it I expect to not be chastised.

This forum post will probably make me not liked among this division. If that is the case then it may be best for me to move on.

It's this way and that Zyloh. On one hand, almost every single one of us wanted a certain server for different reasons. That'll happen. I personally believe choosing one that doesn't completely divide the division (top 2 were split in 1/2 with support) works out in the end. Now we don't have to worry or bitch about it, because no one got their way. In an odd way, it'll bring us together.

Now, whether new people join the mumble or vent community, we'll have to see XD.
- can we please stop beating a dead horse with this for once please! Thanks! - nautix
