The only thing that this thread showed to me is that it is a good move for companies to make population caps on servers lower (not saying it is what GW is doing, I have no idea what middle, high, full stands for).

But it obviously has some psychological effect on the players considering they blindly post server statuses without any idea what the population really is...

Dont be fooled by the full notice on the server status screen. It simply means the server is full, not active players, but full of accounts created. If the servers were full as stated, there may be a log in que, and we would get more notices that we could leave the overflow server. I havent gotten any of this, even though my server is full. Also, there is no longer a queue to enter the eternal battlegrounds, which is a nice, but goes to show that the server pops are down. Sorry, but its the truth.

It is surprising how many people are totally missing the OP's point, however there hasn't been a theme park game made that hasn't fallen prey to this particular issue.

About the only way to fix it is to figure out a way to get an influx of new players, I'd say the holidays will bring another round along with folks who may reroll an alt when they have some extra free time to play.

 

We are not missing his point. The point is that he has no point. There is no shortage of players in lower level zones, period. The game has its issues but this is definitely not one of them. He's just talking out of his former mmo experience while it is quite clear he's not actually playing the game because what he presents as "fact" can be readily disproved by simply logging in for 5 minutes.

While GW2 might have a real problem "what to do in higher level zones?" it does not suffer from the old "player population in lower levels." People who claim that are simply ignorant and posing as players for whatever reason. The OP just wanted to make a cheap stab at GW2 and claimed a problem that seemed safe to him - the one that is present in every themepark to date. Well he made a big mistake, because that is one of the things GW2 actually managed to fix.

the servers arnt empty its just a typical themepark with zones. once you level past that zone you move on, sooner or later those lower level zones will be empty and new players will feel like the game is dead.

At the moment GW2 is very populated on each end of the leveling but not that populated in the middle.

30-70 was really bad while leveling up my Ele.

70-80 was full though since you are in Orr where every 80 (hyperbole but probably close to the truth) on your server is.

My friends cant even transfer to our server as its full for the last 3 weeks :(

 

Well I would never imply that someone is a troll, because that is just not my style. I do remember that the OP had posted a couple weeks ago about how he was done with GW2 and selling his account. He said something about it having no staying power or something to that effect.

Now, obviously he didn't sell his account if he's roaming these desolate wastelands of the starter areas, but it's also obvious that he's decided he wants to start a new toon in this game that didn't hold any long term motivation for him. If only more people could have such a drastic change of heart, and make new toons, that these lower level areas would start to be more populated.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

We are not missing his point - but I think he is a little early in this prediction. GW1 is still going strong.

I guess it depends on your server. At least in Yak's Bend (where I play) lower level zones seem packed at the times I play (between 9 pm and midnight, venezuelan time), as does Lion's Arch (still get overflow there from time to time). Mid level zones (30 to 60, which is my highest level char so far) do feel more empty but I do run into several other people all the time, and map chat is usually active. So far I have had some events I've done solo, but it's more common to see at least 2 or 3 other people at least doing them, and for the group events if there's nobody there, usually a map yell of "X boss/Y event up near Z waypoint" means 10 or more people showing up in a few minutes. Of course, YMMV, and being member of a rather large guild also helps a lot, IMHO.

That said, it's normal for a game to start to become top heavy as time goes by, and actually I expected it to be worse than it is right by now, considering one of the game "features" is getting to level cap relatively fast (like in GW1). That said, I'd welcome an "underflow" server as mentioned before, that might merge a zone between different servers if it falls under a certain threshold of players, kinda like WoW's cross server zones.

What can men do against such reckless hate?

If you read his post you would realize that he stated that the servers show high or full but there is no one in the starter zones. Have a pic for that?

I hope you realize that your "population" is based solely  on how many people have it as their "Home Server"  not how many people are currently logged in. Common mistake.

Glad the op was missed. I have noticed the lower zones missing people. What once was crowded fighting for objectives, now they are plentiful, and easy to get to.

Nice i know , but where are these people ? Could it be that this HIGH and FULL includes OFFLINE players ? Yes it does, Full doesnt mean there are thousands of players online.

This server table shows missleading  data anyway. 

What gives if ETERNAL BATTLEGROUND has a 20 mins queue if the PvE zones are empty and the most level 80is are standing around in Lichs Arch waiting ??

This Table is for the dog....

 

ANet just reduced the server cap to 100 players.

Actually, I wouldn't put it past them...

Heres on player who isnt logging in anymore after playing for 2 months hard. I dont imagine im alone. Once I got to 80, there wasnt much to do. Same dungeons, same WVW. Ill pop in for the events, but thats about it for now. PLaying PS2 instead.

What is the requirements to be listed as a high or full server? Does anyone know? Also, is the other person correct in stating that it is the number of people listing that as a home server as opposed to the amount of people logged on? I am curious. Thanks.

It has to do with how many people are on the server, not how many picked it as their home server (that would be just dumb). The former was the way GW1 worked and I see no reason why they would change it.

We don't know. We know that servers go from full to high and from high to full especially during weekends (would make sense) and it happens even now when transfers are once per week. So logically thinking it is not possible to only show number of accounts. But since we can't create new characters on full server it might also being affected by number of accounts.

I think it might be some kind of combination of the two.

I already asked this in the thread, but, if anyone played the game during normal week days in the morning ot afternoon, or late hours of the night, we shoud know.

GW2 as, IMO, atleast 1 million still. However, even then, i expect low and medium pop servers to show up during non peek times. People have jobs and school and other stuff. 

if someone had the time, we could find out. So, who wasn't to sacrifice work for it?

Posts like these are as bad as players claiming all lower zones are deserted based on their own server.. Why do you guys always deal in extreme? your server or OP's server does not equal to entire populaition. Sorry but both of your server ain't that special.

Situation differ from server to server. Like i said on mine it is very top heavy and lower zones don't have that many players in it. Does that mean i should start harping that you have no point, because i saw on my server that lower zones are empty. period. So it must be true fo all the servers on EU / US?

That is really silly.

Posts like these are as bad as players claiming all lower zones are deserted based on their own server.. Why do you guys always deal in extreme? your server or OP's server does not equal to entire populaition. Sorry but both of your server ain't that special.

Situation differ from server to server. Like i said on mine it is very top heavy and lower zones don't have that many players in it. Does that mean i should start harping that you have no point, because i saw on my server that lower zones are empty. period. So it must be true fo all the servers on EU / US?

That is really silly.

Of course it varies server by server.  Also by playtime.  Last night on my server in a level 20ish zone the area was fairly populated with people.   Was in a cave by myself when a handful of othe people came in so we decided to take down this champion spider.  Started a flame legion event by myself and finished with about 10 people in which we went into a flame legion portal that had a series of puzzles to solve...which all of us strangers were working together to finish.
