    Default Returning- wow- what's the new PVP server?

    Just logged on and my two old school pvp servers (DeepStrike and Bricarcliff) are now TRIAL SERVERS?

    I only see ONE full blown PVP (Seastone) and it has low population??? This is crazy.....did the game die this year? Where did everyone go?

    This is amazing!... like DAOC all over again...where did all the PVPers go?
    Rogue: 0/0 HK or any other PVE content. Over 120+ days /played in PVP content exclusively as an Assassin. (yes, 2800 hours)
    Yes, I know MM and NB rule. No, I don't want to switch to a MM. Yes, I know they are the best. No, again, I'd rather improve Assassins.

    No point in being on a pvp server over a pve, unless you're a rogue atleast.

    Synna - Rogue - Vigil

    Synna Stonecove/Invalid Target for all those darkfall people

    Well, yes I'm a rogue so don't mind the zergs as much- but even then last year at least there was a high pop on many (most) servers. Only Wolfsbane has a high pop now, pve only, Seastone- has Low? that kind of sucks....

    Guilds on PVP servers can't have mixed factions and therefore are at a disadvantage. Most of the best pvp'ers seem to be on pve servers now.

    The ONLY reason I am on a PvE shard is because I can play with my guardian friends. As long as PvP shards cannot mix factions and q with each other they will always be low population.

    Reason being the population is so small in the game that its more convenient to have a larger pool of players to play with vs just one faction of them.

    Friends, a vastly better server economy and you can nearly live out the same worthy pvp experience within this game on a pve server minus the world killing. That is why I moved. I guess I haven't seen Seastones economy as of late. But if the pop is still going lower and nothing has changed, I don't see why much would have changed.

    We are all one cluster though now and WF's/(hopefully) CQ is where the scene will be. Here is to hoping CQ got a nice design revamp and is more alluring. And maybe with the random WF bonus being favorable to choose, the devs can add in more WF's without the possibly concern of having too many WFs and thinning the population. The random que is a great idea to have a lot of WF and still good timed ques with many people on the same page.

    Doubt it is low population. It's just a huge stifle in community togetherness to completely build a wall between the players in game. It works decent for pvp. I imagine for raiding it was great. No more, oh, I left my guild and can't join X guild cause I'm stuck on this faction. Sort of just makes sense to allow cross grouping. Never should have had it that way in the first place. Just like forcing faction in WFs. Way smoother under the hood design to do it that way in many areas of the game.

    True it might not be needed with an excessive population. But from a design stand point I'd say it was just improvements.

    If pvp was like lineage 2 back in the day life would be simple. Faction pvp is fail. Always has been always will be
