Hey guys!

I know there are similar topics, but people usually look for good wvw/pve combo, I am only looking for good wvw server. What does that mean?
I like roaming and I like good fights that is why I am looking at t1 now because I think best players to duel are there. I also like my allies to be good fighters so i can roam in little groups sometimes and if needed join organised zergs, sieges and defences. I also want to find server that doesn´t just rely on guild teams and would suck if those would leave. As I said I don´t care for pve, especialy because guesting is coming. I have heard that Desolation is good English server, do you have any other suggestions?

P.S: EU server

Thank you!

server rank has nothing to do with player skill, just numbers/coverage/organization. You're just as likely to encounter a skilled opponent on any tier.

that being said, the higher the tier, the less likely it is you'll ever encounter someone to duel. "roaming" on T1 means slamming into zerg after zerg.

Until the free server transfers are gone, everything is in flux. If you don't mind paying a bit, I would wait a week or two after server transfers cost. If you don't want to wait, I would avoid bottom tier servers as they can feel like a ghost town. I would also avoid top tier servers as they can get crowded making peak time have some really long waits. Our guild switched up to a tier 3 US server recently and have been happy with the move.

  In Tier 1 and Tier 2, there is very little room to roam in small groups.

  In these tiers there are a whole lot of large, fast moving zergs that you will run into as a small group very often.

   It can be done, but in the lower tiers, there is a lot more room for a small group to move and achieve things.

EU T1 has very little roam room for a small group/solo as it its full of VS zergs altho that being said i have found a few small group/solo encounters against the 3rd opponent but usually only cause they are pushing for map comp.
T2 or T3 would be better for small roam group/solo play.

Also would depend on your time zone for play aswell, But if you insist on T1, I can say I dont know what Des queues are like but I know we have  no queues outside EU primetime except for EB and these queues are only 5mins at most during primetime they are maybe 30mins but you can usually get straight into a border zone even at primetime.

But be aware that Des or SFR will go to T2 next week, due to an uncompetitive T2 as a result of end of free transfers.

Im in American t3 server at the moment and its like what you want, i think the upper tiers are very organised and leave little room for the roamers and stuff like that.

Anvil Rock is home to a large SPvP community and they are in the lower tiers.  I would imagine picking a server of similar coverage and size that would get paired with Anvil Rock would net you many competitive 1v1s in addition to small group fights in general.  If you go to a higher tier, looking for duels and such is going to be largely an exercise in frustration.  Higher tiers are more about how to score points, secure your PPT, and clever use of siege mechanics than individual player skill.

That said, I am sure very skilled players exist on all tiers.

i agree with this, i am from Deso, and u rarely see single roaming dudes around, who are jsut run over by either one of the servers,
And VS is notorious for their 60+ roaming. However if u want to join a wvw guild and then roam with them, then either Deso or SFR are a good choice.
T2 and below are highly unstable now, cos of constant movements. i havent heard of any guilds leaving either SFR or Deso so far.

We have a strong comunity at www.pevepe.net and a public TS free for all members and theyr friends.


i would like you and your friends think about joining our server, it may be what you are looking for!
