I will be logging on around 8:00 or 9:00 est Sunday to begin my 3 day catassing forray but we need to nail down a server and starting zone so we can all be on the same page.

This isn't until next weekend right?  I doubt it the server set for launch is being published yet.

I'll post an announcement that morning. It will most likely be the third of fourth server up that morning.

On a related note- how many character slots are available per server?

I'm confident it'll be 5, then you can have one character per archetype.

5-8 per server? Wow...that is shitload of characters if you branch out to other servers. Do you hear that, SWG? /rude

It's also the reason I DON'T want to pick the first server that goes live. Unfortunately a Bat Country Server may not be picked until a couple hours into the first day as I would really like it to be the least populated.

Yeah, but CoH storage needs for each character are next to nothing as well.  SWG admittedly has a ton of data potential for each character considering all the structures you can have filled up with stuff.  And they made the bad decision to go with a very expensive database solution.

Sounds like the new jedi system will also expand all accounts to two characters though, since the new jedi system is not going to unlock a separate slot anymore.  So so so off topic though.

I like that plan. Probably won't make much difference in the long run, but worth a shot at least.

Official post on the beta boards, some of the server names will be...

"Justice"
"Pinnacle"
"Virtue"
"Liberty"
"Guardian"
"Infinity"
"Protector"
"Victory"
"Champion"

Standard caveat about not all of these may be live day 1, or possible others added as well.  Too bad they don't have one named "Refuge" as I think that would have fit perfectly.

I have a feeling this server will be one of the most crowded, if for no other reason than every superhero gaming geek is familiar with the most prominent superhero RPG: Champions.

I hate that song and a pox on you for sticking it in my head.  It'll take hours, maybe days, to get it out of there!  You knew that, too, didn't you?

Anyway, I like Liberty.  It's the closest thing they have to Anarchy.

Seems a consensus is forming o the unoffcial European server being Guardian.

So I suspect I will be playing there.

I tried to avoid the Europeans in SW:G. Well, specifically the Italians. Didn't happen. This time their warning me. I like that.

Edit: I'm an Italian American. We don't mix with people from the motherland, except for the 20-35 year old women. Xenophobia is hard.

My mum was born in Italy.  She was a saint, of course.  If she were alive today she would have said, "Fuck you, you slimey little WOP."

I am not opposed to playing on the unofficial Euro server.  If they add PvP to the game, perhaps I can bag me some REAL nazis.

Just do what I do. Think of the theme song to "Green Acres." Works every time.

I'm open to any of them that doesn't suck. And the one that isn't flooded over with Frenchies is good too.

Some of the best friends I've made in these games have been on the unofficial European servers, so I wouldn't at all be opposed to playing on one of them.

I'll just hit Refresh here every so often leading into Sunday evening.
