Please note: I'll cut off voting around 10pm PST today.  I'll be out tomorrow and perhaps not playing, so I want the direction available tomorrow for headstart people.

Please only vote if you'd like to hang out with whatever this becomes.  This is non-binding as we may stumble upon a very good idea when we get some feedback here.  I listed PVE-RP servers because that's where people indicated they'd like to play.

If you have a f13 friendly guild going somewhere, let us know as that could be a good option.  

Personal disclosure: I probably won't be incredibly active and I play later at night. I can help get things going, whatever we decide on, but I'm not a good caretaker going forward.  Anyhow, interested in learning where people would like to play.

I'm in on Thursday and have 2 friends joining me for at least the first month.   I know absolutely nothing about forming a guild in this game.

Me as well.  I don't really care what server or side.  I just want to annoy f13 members through a different medium.

I have a few real life buddies who I will be playing with, we've decided on Guardian PVE, but nothing beyond that. I'll happily go wherever people go to have a larger pool of people available.

If someone wants to gift me a copy of the game, I'll set up BC on Faeblight  why so serious?

Best bet would be to make a secondary guild on the opposite faction, same server, given experiences in betA.

That just seemed to be what people were trending to in the MMO forum post.  I'd rather not split people up over something trivial.  Some folks just want the added filtering, and I won't deny them that.

Not if it's on an RP server. While I'm not fond of the crowd on a regular server, the crowd on an RP server I dislike even more. I can put up with common internet assery, but roleplaying internet assery kind of makes me want to die.

Eh, it's more playstyle habits and reactions of the people generally found on the servers that bothers me moreso than chat.

I think that the consensus is that the RP servers typically cater to an older crowd, thus the interest from people here.  I personally don't care, since I probably won't be interacting with folks not in Bat Country that much anyway.

I'll probably end up picking Byriel - I have a few people I know there.

Or not - they're playing Defiant. Bah.

I'm pretty indifferent personally.  I haven't played on RP servers in the past, but I don't really tend to integrate into server culture.  It'll be all the same to me.

Btw, I'm aggregating the guardian/defiant votes. I think that's only fair in the odd situation that we have a winning server/faction that doesn't match the overal faction preference.   I'm sure I'll end up pissing someone off here.  awesome, for real

Gah.  View Results doesn't show if you haven't voted.

I'd put Faeblight Defiant, but I won't be getting this at release and it may be some time before I do, if ever.  I don't want to skew the results by voting.

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!

edit; not averse to Guardian on Shadefallen, but I figured I should just pick one so I did.

I chose Faeblight/Defiant, but Guardian works too.  It's not like the classes are any different, or anything.

Given the fact that the game populace as a whole seems a bit more 'hardcore' than your typical MMO, I'd be willing to bet the RP servers are gonna be pretty flooded at release-time.  The ol' trick of using RP as a 'filter' doesnt really work anymore imo, since everyone now tries the same trick.  (shrug)

That's a decent point, though we don't know how hardcore the general population will be.  Beta population is usually filled by the shouting minority.

I think I'm getting a copy. I don't care what server we're on though.

I did like the PVP in Warhammer though, so I'm mildly torn.

I only chose shadefallen guardian due to it being lower alphabetically, which should filter more people out.

There's ramblings they may add RvR some point soon.

I don't see why they couldn't.  There's battleground/scenario like stuff on PVE servers as well, just no open ganking.

I think I might end up picking Gnarlwood or Greybriar PVE Guardian, based solely on the fact that I have heard nothing about either of them and they are in the middle of the server list.

Both seem to have a decent amount of guilds posting threads for both Defiant and Guardian.

There is encouraged world pvp on the pve servers as well (a lot of quests ask you to gank flagged NPCs or flagged players, but are clearly labeled PVP)

That said, I'm down with Faeblight/Guardian. RP-PVE just suits me, the communities in beta seemed okay guardian side on them (with absolutely zero RP, beyond that creepy couple sitting in town emoting at each other all day)
