Underworld server (UE), its full almost the time, although mid level zones have less people than starting or cap level maps, there's a lot of increasing bots too. well i think the game its quite sustainable in population

Prime time instant WvW queue on Jade Quarry for Enternal Battleground. Down from 2-4 hours queues. 

 

Primetime only 20 Spvp games running. Down from 200+ 

 

Idk about mergers, but this is the second thread talking about low population. The first was on the official forums. I know it's doesn't feel good to hear, but indicators are showing that whatever sales are being made, they are not enough to make up for the slow downs and quits.

 

Matter of fact Cresling made a post too about what to do about thining populations, so that's 3 threads, 1 buy a very respected member of the mmorpg.com community.

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

Population may change but you have to realize that some people will leave and come back to the game later when the mood strikes them. Because there is no subscription, people can come and go and take breaks from the game. Maybe that has something to do with the population drop currently, and the fact that they just had the Halloween event and people are taking a break from playing it so much. Like me.

He is right tho. I logged in yesterday evening since a long time and pretty much all lower level zones are dead!

I was questing for about an hour or so, before I got totally bored again.... there was not a single player around. :-(

So it seems the game has already become top heavy and no new players joining anymore.

 

Top heavy? Kinda reminds me of Rift.

Under-populated zones are getting more and more noticed by the playerbase.

https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/game/suggestions/Underflow-Shards-for-Underpopulated-Zones/first#post662458

 

That doesn't mean it is under-populated for every player but there seems to be enough in the community that feel that way and are asking for / suggesting solutions.

no, thats wrong, the servers marking High or Full depends on server transfers. If some leave the server goes from full to high and some others can transfer to it.

If a server is marked  as full or high, this just means that many accounts are on it and again not how many active online players are there.. 

if a server is very successful in WvW like SoS then players transfer to it but maybe loose interest and quit the game, their accounts are still on that server and count. 

Full /High has nothing to do with active online players.

yes i have been on underworld, its a good server, maybe one of the last very active ones. i eventually transfer back to Underworld from US Sea of Sorrows because that server is quiet in PvE. In WvW its very active tough.

I found one huge flaw in the "going back to low terioties" direction of the game. Actualy there are two things:  I would do that a lot if, The content is not that easy at lvl80 and I can repeat Heart quests. Some of the Hearts are really fun and I want and will repeat them, if they give me that oportunity.

This is whats generaly keeps me from going back. Also they should add more events to the existing teritories. I like how they open new mini dungeons and caves, or even bigger open areas.

No, it's not wrong. When our entire alliance moved to a new server, it took damn near two weeks to get everyone over as the only period when anyone could transfer was a couple of hours during off hours when the server would go from full to high. My recommendation is quit parroting people who have no idea what they are talking about.

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

you come across sounding like someone that feels Anet has ripped people off

 

Ripped off? No, let the buyer beware is always the case with any product.

I made a bad choice. Simple.

But I did get a refund so all is good. I give ANet props for doing that, since they really could have ignored my request, even though I gave them a really hard time about it.

This thread made me laugh. On my server everyone is in higher level areas like Orr (crowed), trolling dragons, and WvWvW where there are always queues to get in certain areas ( mainly boarderlands we are taking over or EB)

The mid level zones are empty, cept for people mapping like me or grinding up for the first time. This was like that when I made it to those areas first go around since lots had already powerleved to 60+ doing dragons early on while i was just taking my time playing all the content in a zone.

Starter level areas, depends on the day.

The problem isn't population. The servers are packed pretty much constantly, even in the morning some servers are still full. The problem is its a giant game, with dozens of zones, multiples for each level range so people get spread out. It also becomes rather top heavy, with lvl 80's spending most their time in Arah, WvW or LA. There are generally plenty of chars in the 1-15 zones and decent amounts in the 15-25 zones, but after that things get spread out.

That said, I never have a problem finding enough poeple to do a Meta event, etc. Even some of the less played zones like Fields of Ruin, when the meta-events pop folks come out of the woodwork heh. I'm on Tarnished Coast though, one of the more populous servers, but even those reading High on a monday night shouldn't have much of a problem. Might help some folks if they joined a fairly sizable guild, so if they need help to complete an event there are folks who can help. But I find that even when /map chat is dead, there are still a few dozen folks around to do events, specially if you call them out. These are some of the biggest zones I've seen in an MMOG, so while you might only see 2 or 3 people while doing them there often are as many as several dozen in these less populated mid-lvl zones.

A tip as well for those on servers that seem 'dead' in the mid-lvl range. When choosing which zone to do next, go to one that has a really big meta-event, like a dragon. Bladeridge Steps  (40-50) for The Shatterer. Sparkfly Fen (55-65) for Tequatl the Sunless, and Frostgorge Sound (70-80) for Claw of Jormag. Yes these are all 40+ zones but it doesn't take long at all to get to 40 and into one of these zones which 'always' have folks in them. Before 40 there are a few zones with popular Meta Events, like Harathi Hinterlands (35-45) with the Centaur chieftain in the NE of the zone.

So if you follow this lineup, you'll find plenty of folks from 1-80 (1-25 racial zones are always populated).

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......

 

 

 

pls tell me the names of your spooky ghost servers - i wanna get ri of the overflow shit on my full server. oh wait. theyre all full. each and every zone. die more, GW2 ^^

So I just finished making 2 new characters. the first character went through the introductory story with 6 other people. The second one was only with 4 other people.

 

My thanks to everyone for sharing and I look forward to reading the post of all the honest people on future games as well !

I disagree with the entire post. Sorry. When I see posts like this I always have to wonder...

My playtime is often split between afternoon/prime time and late night. Things are fairly dead in most zones in the late night hours, but I haven't had any issues with dead zones any other time.

I almost exclusively lay PvE and am close to the 500 hour mark. I play the game more like a massively multiplayer Skyrim than the way I've played most other MMOs and am still having a blast. If you expect to play this like WoW or any other stale MMO, you may be disappointed. If you can learn to approach the game a little differently, the massive world space, content and freedom are actually a little overwhelming in their awesomeness. :)

BTW, even during my late night play, I have no issues. DEs scale pretty well and even in the late night hours, people do show up for the bigger events that require a group to complete. I think in ~500 hours I can count on one hand the number of times I have had to abandon a DE because I couldn't complete it alone and couldn't find enough allies to overcome the challenge.

I liked this game at the beginning but I got bored of it rather quickly. It all felt a little repetitive maybe?

Logged in today after two weeks taking a break to check out what´s new, to my surprise the guild was down from about 140 players to 26.

Was a bit shocked what is going on. Guess I´m moving on too

It's funny because most of the complaints come from people who have never gotten to play in Orr (Malcher's Reach) or done the claw, maybe they made it as far Shatterer and gave up lol. I play on Fort Aspenwood btw and no population issues there. Like I said above, middle zones kinda empty since everyone is mostl at the top at this point. Trials will fill the lower levels when they start up.

I play on Ring of Fire (EU). Judging from WvW ranking, our server is probably one of less populated. My main playtime lately is spent by leveling alts. I can feel zones are emptier than before, but they are not ghost towns by any means. More often than not I do DEs with other players.

On the other note... It's normal for game at this stage to lose tons of players. These days many people will give up to the hype and go try a game they actually don't want to play (but everyone is going for it, so I must obey, huh?). After all pretty much everything they argue about is well known before GW2 even came out. They play for a month or two till they finally understand "this game is not for me". I think in about another month or two pupulation will stabilize, guilds will be merged and reformed and all will be fine. After that, maybe they will merge some servers or simply implement idea of "underflow servers".

Right now, you can move to different server at any point of time, it's not paid as in WoW and if you choose one of servers that rank fairly high in WvW, I'm sure there will be enough people playing.
