I just wanted to make an announcement over here, that us folks over at Guild Wars 2 Roleplayers have decided on servers for our roleplay community.

NA has chosen Tarnished Coast

EU has chosen Petrified Forest (changed to Piken Square)

Mod Edit: The server "Petrified Forest" seems to have been removed from the lists. I have been told that the EU community has changed the server choice to "Piken Square" If this is not the case, please PM me (Feathermoore)


You guys are by no means obligated to pick these servers too, but it would be awesome if all roleplayers congregated in the same place! Keeping everybody together facilitates a healthy, growing RP community.

I hope to see you in game and have lots of fun testing RP stuff!

These are not the official servers for launch guys, it's just the the ones for this Beta.

If there's a reason that Tarnished Coast and Petrified Forest don't work out, or don't exist at launch, of course we'll pick new ones. :)

I believe it's just their plan for the BWE, but if Anet is anything like Trion with Rift, they wont change the server names for launch.

It's probably a fairly safe assumption, so here's hoping we like our homes and stick with them!

I do believe that when we choose the live server there will be a much larger cross-site discussion to make sure that everyone within reason is heard. Again this is just beta so no one is rushing to determine their launch server.

For now Petrified Forest will be the EU server for all forthcoming BWE's. In terms of launch nothing is yet set in stone but there is a very real possibility that we decide to go for the same server for launch if it is available for launch.
Don't expect to roll a character on these servers this weekend and suddenly be surrounded by RP. Most roleplayers will use the little time we have during these weekends to experience the game, character creation, testing the classes doing WvW and PVP. Roleplay will likely start blooming on the final release servers after early acces and launch and of GW2.

These BWE servers are just an opportunity for the RP community to meet and greet and there will be special guilds created. For more info about the plans of the EU community on Petrified Forest check the guildwars2roleplayers.com EU forum.

Except the Petrified Forest, of course.

I get the impression a lot of people on GW2RP don't like it. But I could be wrong. Just a name for me though. I don't care where we end up as long as I get to be with you guys.

Well, if folks don't like 'em, there's a vote upcoming (after the BWE) and we can change 'em then. We just had to make a quick call and get the word out for this first BWE with less than 72 hours from server announcement to server open.

That's a bad idea. The choice has been made and communicated. Changing at the last moment leads to drama and probably a split community.

S/he means for the permanent server and for future BWE's.

Right on. I'm okay with this if it's just for beta.

Although, I wonder, once this is sorted; is there any chance of designating a RP-PvP server? I'm one of those RPers who actually wants to World vs. World and RP too.

Open-world PVP doesn't really exist in GW2; PvP happens only in designated areas no matter what server you are on. So it's probably best not to divide up the community like that.

There won't be a change before the BWE.  Only afterward, if people are unhappy with the chosen server, since we didn't have time to allow for a proper vote on short notice.

We won't be designating one at GW2RP.   As growly said, there is no open world PvP, so there is no point in selecting an RP-PvP server.

There is WvW but it happens in a separate part of the game Rac.

Yep, you like PVP (I know I do) then simply join your fellow rp-pvp'ers and fight in the mists (WvW area) of your chosen RP server.

Fight for the Coast if your an American.

Fight for the Forest if your a European.

Choose one of the two if your from somewhere else.

You know what would be fun someday?  The EU RP server going head to head with the NA RP server in the Mists.  :)

If we could get everyone actually rp during WvW pvp that would be a tale for the ages!

The US RP server is currently being rocked by Sorrow's Furnace in WvW. However, we're still 2nd place, lol.

I was on Mumble with one of my guildies and apparently he was rallying Tarnished coast against blue earlier today! Was pretty damn epic.

I liked Tarnished Coast and the people in it a lot, in or outside of the RP community, and we had an extent of the "Power of the Mists" boon a very large portion of the time. While they aren't the "official" release servers yet, I see no reason to fix what isn't broken.

Agreed, my guild and I also played on Tarnished Coast, and we liked it there. The population was high, and the people were friendly. Also there were quite a few people running around in open RP groups, which I liked.

Update: After some post-BWE discussion, both our NA and EU groups have decided to stick with Tarnished Coast and Petrified Forest, respectively, for the duration of the BWE events due to the positive experiences we all had. :)

The only negative experience I had on TC was when one guild showed up and basically spammed griefed the Cracked Flagon. So TC is not without it's bad apples, overall we just picked up and ignored them and found a new location.
