In the US, the busiest servers are:Brandywine, Landroval, Meneldor and Elendilmer (sp) :)

I am a new player as well.I too am looking for a server recommendation.I mainly solo and have started as an RK. Some say go to a populated server because its so filled with players. Some say a populated server means too much competition for resources and quest bosses etc etc. So ...I need some  opinons and rationale .Thanks in advance for the help

Any server you choose will be fine as far as population. Brandywine just started having a queue again with the Book 7 update.

In a game like this there really isn't competition for raids or resources. All raid encounters are instanced so no issue there.

I'm on Brandywine and I feel it's a good server population wise (the largest I believe). I've never had any issues with raids and resources.

 I prefer low population servers for the reasons posted just above me.  The only problem is unless you are playing on the bleeding edge of the game (leveling fast as new content/expansions come out) you are often left behind and it's VERY difficult to find people to do those pesky fellowship quests because everyone has moved on to higher level content by the time you get there.

I have been looking for the most populated as well. As I play during most peoples off hours (8am - 3pm EST). Being on a low pop server doesn't suit me as there aren't many people on.

If you play at off peak times you should probably play on Elendilmer(sp?), It is the un-official Oceana server and has people doing stuff at all hours.
