No worries easily changed, will update when compendium is edited.

Gate of Madness looks like it has a substantial group of guilds rolling there.
The Elite, Synapse and TRF are Titan Alliance guilds and there presence on GOM and/or member counts should not currently be counted as any sort of vote or intention to make GOM another unofficial oceanic server. I'm not saying you are doing that, I'm just saying.

I can understand your view but the list is just representative of player base and there is no agenda behind the numbers. If the list is wrong Oolius and myself will rectify the data.

Everyone needs to keep in mind that the list is in NO WAY representative of final numbers nor Oceanic population.

The fact that they chopped Astralarium?

I agree its a shame, they could have cut any of the other servers :P

Looks like we're going to the Gate of Madness. I'll be there for BWE3, see you ingame.

You know, it won't matter if we make a new choice, but by launch I expect at least some of the servers they cut for BWE3 will make a return, to cope with the much larger number of players. Who wants to bet that both Astralarium and Eternal Grove will make a return? :P

It's highly likely they will be returning at some stage, as I don't see how Arenanet could significantly boost their pop caps to say double or triple, not that I'm a technical expert. I wouldn't call GoM just yet IoJ is quite close too.

It could definitely win out by launch, I just have a bit of tunnel vision at the moment thinking of BWE3 :cool:

(This is a long shot) But just out of curiosity those of you who voted Isle of Janthir, are you guys members of a guild(if so what guild?) or are you just flying solo for now?

SoS and GoM are 2 of the current 3 full servers.  Darkhaven is at High and Isle of Janthir is at Low pop

It probably won't be as bad at headstart I'm guessing. There will be a lot of people who just got one of the 10s of thousands of free keys playing.

Has anyone consider Stormbluff Isle?  My guild belongs to the Stormbluff Alliance and we are looking for EU or Oceanic players and guilds to join us on that server.

Sure put some links up or w/e for people that are interested :)

Also having some fun on GoM seems like there's quite a few Aussies running around! Hope everyone having a great time, or was before the bloody login server crashed! lol

Sorry for double but this needs to stay up for the Oceanic community.

Well it was interesting this BWE.

When I jumped on to check out the latest changes, I went to go jump into Gate of Madness only to find it had an even higher population than Sea of Sorrows!  Since I'm trying to steer clear of these high pop servers, I'm not so sure I'll stick with GoT at release.  Isle of Janthir might be a better option for someone like me.

I was just talking to an Aussie this morning (4am Central US, 7 pm Eastern Aus) on Isle of Janthir if people there had picked a server yet since ANet doesn't specify any Oceanic servers and he said not really.  He laughed at me saying that I figured many would flock to Isle of Janthir as kind of an unspoken "go to" server since it's the only "Isle."  The only other "oceanic" name is Sea of Sorrows, but that sounds depressing.  lol

GoM was pretty full I'll admit. I wonder if there will be more or less people at release based on the amount of keys given out.

I played on Gate of Madness aswell. I didn't end up attempting to queue WvW because I only wanted to PvE for the BWE so I just ran around doing renown hearts and DEs. I think there was only one instance I wasn't on an overflow, and even the overflow servers I was put in had loads of people in them. It was actually pretty good being on a high population server doing PvE, but the queue times for WvW must have been atrocious (when it wasn't closed for maintenance that is). Definitely looking for somewhere else come launch.

it's actually good news that SoS, Darkhaven and GoM are all full during Oceanic peak times, because that means we have enough players to spread out over at least 4 servers.

This does appeal to me to be honest. I just worry that as the game goes on those populations would suffer. If enough people agree I'll propose a second alternate to be displayed.

Now the BWE event is over, the question is, do you plan on staying on the server you voted for / played on during the BWE for release? Hopefully the thread maintains interest until launch, consider this a bump. Also according IoJ seems to be gaining some more momentum in the server discussion over at  www.gw2au.com

I'm likely going to look for a guild to join before release, and then roll on whatever home server they designate. I don't see a reason for me to choose a server and then look for a guild on that server. So as of this moment I have no idea where I will be playing.
