For all we know:

 

Low = Between 0-1 Players

Medium = 2-5 Players

High = 6-10 Players

Full = 11+ Players

 

The text they display on the server page is meaningless without knowing real numbers.  Same goes for WoW or any other game.

 

I think the only difference is, in WoW and some other games UI modes have been created to run scripts, count active players (tracking Unique Names hopefully) and reporting that so that outside websites can get a good guess on total player populations.

Well, clearly the sky is faling and Anet is going bankrupt. It'll be F2P like TOR in 5 months. /sarcasm

But i'd like to know one thing just out of curiosity. I'm not a "conspericy" guy, but, do the "high/full" pop tags stay like that all the time?

As anyone played GW2 during the middle of the week days or late hours of the night and dawn when the game will drop to some low or medium pop as to be expected of any game? Or does it stay like that?

Really not trolling, just asking, because, if so, the servers don't reflect the actual online player numbers, and therefore, why some people may be find empty zones, while others don't.

Well, with pretty much any MMO, the best time to buy it is on or near release.  After a month players have hit the cap and are grinding whatever rewards tehy are after.

I am more than some of my parts

I was playing with my lower level theif in Metrica Province and there were lots of people running around.  In all honesty, the only place I've found that was short on players was the higher level area approaching Orr (can't think of the name offhand)

Of course, thats just my experience, and because I enjoy the game alot of the "haters" will feel my opinion is invalid.

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

Well it's what 2 1/2 months since reease, you would think still new people coming in. You know capping in a month makes me feel like I am a turtle while I'm levelling lol.

I had to solo the most events when it was possible with my guardian, sometimes one or two players appeared which was like a miracle after meeting no one over a long period of time.

Even Sea of Sorrows or Sanctum of Rall´s PvE Zones are mostly empty these days.  The most people are Level 80 and do W v W.

The hype about GW2 has ended, many people just left after they noticed that GW2 isnt for them. 

PvE is unattractive , bad loot, bad rewards and commonly grind grind grind. GW2 is a farmer game nothing else. Either do WvW or grind to 80.. some manage to level by crafting.. 

I think its time for a server merge soon or more people leave ...  Guild Wars 2 isnt far away from a real mass exodus.

When login into the game the server usually show HIGH - FULL but the PvE zones are empty......

I thought you sold your account because you lost the will to log in after 14 days.  Also, please share with us how you can speak with authority about the current state of server populations on "most" of the servers in PvE?  I look forward to how you were able to determine this with such certainty.

It's an MMO gamer affliction. When they leave a game but see others still having fun in it they become obsessed with validating thier decision, resulting in desperate behaviour such as the fine post that began this thread.

Wait a second...        ... Kaineng has a HIGH pop? Thats one of the new servers. They aren't supposed to be going up in population! Who let this happen? That would imply that people are still buying the game?! Oh wait...           ...maybe everyone transferred from the other servers which are full, leaving them to be only full. That must be what happened.

I mentioned this being a potential problem before.  It's not that people are leaving the game in droves or anything, it's just that the natural evolution of a themepark MMORPG always has people spending less and less time in mid level zones, and more time in max level zones and end-game activities.

So this IS a real problem for people that would like to level with others there and not be in empty zones most of the time.  Two solutions that were suggested were:

1.  "Reverse overflow" servers, which means that the game would essentially push players in a zone from any server into just a few instances so that the zone would be more populated.

2.  Periodic events that would "highlght" certain zones in hopes of drawing players to specific zones for the event.

Since they have overflow server tech, I'd hope they could add functionality to let players in underpopulated areas join in a non server specific instance of each zone.  Maybe wait for that if it's a concern.

The servers are dieing... well...

 

1.) That is NOT what he is mentioning. Hes talking about the PvE zones (particularly low level) are low in population which having high numbers does absolutely 0 for.

2.) ...Haven't we gone over server population doesn't say shit? Its easy to make "full" be considered 5 players or 200 players and change the numbers as much as we want. Using that to defend game population (which, btw, is NOT the topic of this thread) is a badly flawed way to do it. You didn't let it fly in SWTOR, why let it fly here?

I have definitely noticed low populations in middle level range (30-60, say) PvE zones on Maguuma. Event chains are great fun when there are plenty of people around. They can be pretty tedious when it's just you and a handful of other players (who may not even be near the event you are working on).

Yes you're right (and welcome back.) I've never played any themepark that doesn't suffer from this problem. People play the crap out of the low level zones at release and then the zerg moves on.

 

At least with the DE scaling in this one most DEs are still playable with just one or two players--but not all. The ones with a Champion can be tough to solo.

 

A lot of games try to re-use these zones by pushing events onto them but those are just band-aids. There's no question that themeparks are more fun just after release.

First of all I do not know about swtor nor do I check that section, second he is talking about server merger so when I see a irrelevant post i post accordingly.

Hi guys, just cleaned up the thread a bit. I know the forum has seen a number of similar threads recently, but please don't derail with sarcastic remarks that add nothing to the discussion but to antagonize.

Thanks.

kaineng is one of the new servers? what other two servers were added along with it? it is strange that when there are servers stuck on medium for over a month they are adding new servers before merging those.
