Just an honest question here. How do I group with my friends? Since the start, we made some identical players, but keep getting moved to the overflow on our server (not yak's- moved to moledune)

We would stand at the same waypoint, be in the same party, log out and log back in but no luck whatso ever.

At one point I had one of the 2 friends in my team and we did one instance. But is there districts? or how do you align you party to see all there face pictures (not blacked out)?

Is it possible in pve without going into the mists?

Sorry if this has been asked, I haven't see this yet. Any suggestions to help get our group of 3 or 4 all together?

Thank you in advance.

Since there's no guesting yet and that there's many overflow servers, you're likely to not see eachother... :(

Right now, all you can do is hoping that ANet fix this stupid system before the release. It's completely broken at this time.

The only way you can play with some...is you meet them right then and there, pretty stupid.

You can try to teleport out of a town, so you get a loading screen, at the same time and you got a chance you show up in the same then, or you could try to keep entering/exiting an area till you're both not in the overflow server.

Choosing the overflow is probably possible with the guesting feature. However this feature is not in this BWE.

Either choose or overflow server, or at least make sure party members go to the same one. Spent a couple of minutes jumping between Hoelbrak and Wayfarer Foothills last night, until I ended up on the same overflow server as a friend, by sheer chance.
