Add to that the fact that Darkhaven will also be heavily populated/full and we are left with no alt server. I also agree, the poll needs to be restarted but putting every server up will just cause more confusion. As it stands just from this poll which is on a forum dedicated to the guild wars community we had a poll that was created based on the responses given in the first few pages of the thread. If SoS has room my group will be rolling there. I agree with some of Wazwolf's points, the poll needs to be limited. I don't mind if Darkhaven has been chosen by other communities, fair enough but I would like to pick an alternative to SoS and Darkhaven.
To get an alternative we need to restart this poll with 5-6 options and a clear question:
What server would you like to have as the oceanic alternative to Sea of Sorrows/Darkhaven.
1.Isle of Janthir
2.Gate of Madness
5. None of the above (if selected post your answer)
This will fulfill both sides allowing people to see that Darkhaven is the second choice and allowing people who don't want DH to pick an alternative. Limit it to 2 weeks (imo) and let it be done.
Can we all agree to the above poll and then get a mod to set it up?
3 servers seems great, so long as they are known. The sticked Thread about Unofficial servers and guild/group choice (the first thread we see in Tyrian Assembly), the original poster said on the second page he will not put up alternate servers.
I completely disagree with that, since it causes problems with WvW balance and server over-crowding. Also, it seems the OP might be ignoring private messages (just speculation, I only tried to message him yesterday and noticed Mexay (the poster of this thread) said in a comment to the OP to check his messages about Oceanic server choice.
I find one person controlling the flow of the community's information (and ignoring the community's requests) to be inappropriate. If it is how I see it. Too early to tell.
