MMOs have gotten to a point where we can actually have conversation on wether adding a  server, a month after launch, is a good/bad thing, or wether its possibly just some sort of high/low server capacity "conspiracy" to bring a false sense of security...

 

How sad.

I don't get the OP though. I think he's wrong.

 

I checked it, but couldn't find that server nowhere in the list, I did a count, I came up with 24 NA servers, and 51 in total, exactly the number of servers they had early September.

 

What am I missing?

 




As for bots, I did see an annoying increase in bots, I saw like 3 times more bots last week than I saw a few weeks ago, but not the 5 bots for 1 player ratio. It can differ per server. I'll be playing this weekend on a new character in starter zones, I'll see if things have worsened by then.

yea not showing up as of now unless they just brought it online for testing or something.. like someone said earlier they can't really open a new server without adding two more for WvWvW

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Actually it does but it is true that the game still can fall like a rock after a few months. It do however seems to go a lot better than TOR who started to really fall after 6 weeks.

GW2 is the first MMO in many years that have made it good this far at least, after 6 weeks is the population of my server abput the same as it was a month ago instead of half of that (or less). Remember games like AoC? The server felt smaller everyday I logged in after the first week. And there is way less complains in the chat channels here.

So far so good.

Haters gonna hate whatever you say. All are talkign about three months, when these are gone and there is still high populated servers, they will claim that 90% of GW2 population is bots. When this gets counter-argumented, they will claim, how Anet is cheating through chagning the server status themselves. When this is done, they will talk about how the server capacity being put down without noting the players etc.

You mean exactly how people have been trolling WOW success for years now? you got that one right. I would just like to know how it feels for being on receiving end.

The server that's added isn't true, maybe it was just some testing they did, but the number of servers is exactly the same as a month ago. As for player activity, maybe your impression is that nothing has changed much, but when you look at various player tools you'll see a significant overall drop, even more so than SWTOR experienced. But I don't think there's anything wrong with it. People should accept that MMO gamers are far more aware of launches of new MMO's and instead of joining or trying them in the course of years after a launch, they'll be there all together at launch. Besides that, GW2 is a B2P game, I can see how it'll be a game that people play next to other games and MMO's, at least that's how I did it with GW and many others with me.

I don't see it on the list, and that doesn't make sense to just add ONE server since there are 24 servers (making that 8 WvWvW matchups) they'd have to add 2 more servers to make that the 9th WvWvW matchup.

For every 1 real player I ran into last night, I encountered 3-5 bots.  So not sure what this server is for other than them.

 

^ Load o crock.

 

Next to that i visited all those places where people claimed that there were 20 bots 24/7 teleporting and with names like that etc  , i did not find a thing myself. I did see people doing the even but nothing out of the ordinary since when they finished it they moved on , they also had regular names and didnt teleport. I mentioned this on the gw2 forums and aparently i was there on the wrong time. I dunno how i could be there on the wrong time tho considering "24/7" and all.

 

But lets asume there are 20 bots on these popular bot events. that makes about 2 groups per map for these tops no lets make them 3 per map then, how would those possibly be reposponsible for giving the servers their "high" or "full" status anyway,

 

they couldn't.

i'd say you are greatly exaggerating here. Got some video of this? again not saying bots aren't around but I still have yet to see one upto level 50 accross all my characters and haven't heard any of my friends talking about them or anyone in map chat talking about them.

Starter human area of Yak's Bend server.  Do you really need me to link a video? It would be easier to just group up in-game.  Like the poster above me, send me a tell with in-game name and I'll friend you.  We can both goto Yak's Bend human starting area and I'll gladly show you.

 

Release a game with a very large established fanbase from 10+ years of bnet history when the market was still emerging and the casual base had not yet been established, thus ripe for harvesting a momentious self perpetuating playerbase people never leave because they have X hours invested in their characters, and their friends and everyone else plays anyway. Not discounting Blizzard quality... but WoW's success is as much about perfect timing as it is quality, if not more so. - Derros

I don't know why this community is so hung up on server populations. They don't mean squat. You can have every single server and overflow server so full that there are always log in queues 24/7

and yet, if this thread

http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/366391/Poll-How-much-have-you-spent-on-gems.html

is even remotely close to an accurate sample,  there are a lot more things to worry about.

First its because there are so many haters and trolls who love to stir up controversy and yet when fans try to disprove their point we have posts such as yours.

 

BTW what does that gem thread have to do with the price of milk in Bangladesh?

NCSoft Exec: "Hey! yeah, wow, that's....uhh...pretty good.....You guys did pretty well. Mmhmm,....you uhh seem to have gotten yourselves a pretty popular game there......Glad to see the server populations maintained healthy levels throughout the MoP release.....Mmmm, yeah, that's...uhhh...great! 
But, uhh,  there's just one question.......................................... 


WHHERE'S THE F*****G MONEY FROM THE CASH SHOP!!!!!!!????????" 

I haven't looked at that poll in a couple of days but on the first day I did some quick math based on when it was at 559 responses, and the low end average spent was 15$ per person.  Of course 65% or so weren't spending anything, but the other 35 % were spending on average close to 40$ at the low end.  Of course that poll isn't representative so I'm not sure how much useful information we can get from it.  But according to that poll there is a healthy amount of money being spent by mmorpg.com players.

i'd love to see a video of you running around ANY zone and showing me the overwhelming population of people are botting.. because that is basically what you are claiming

I said the human starting area of Yak's Bend.

and still i'm not saying there are no bots around but highly doubt you could show a majority of the people in the zone botting.. if you can i'd hope you got some footage and posted this over at the official forums. Also where in the human starting area.. just made a new character on Rall that's human want ot see if I can find any

again not saying you are lying but i'd hope if you are seeing a mass of bots all over the zone you are doing more than just /report.. i'd be getting video and posting it to show on official forums.. I'm in queensdale now on Rall yet ot run into a bot this is third time doing this zone since launch

This was just a few minutes ago, Gendarran Fields on Piken Square. The whole zone is sprinkled with them. Running around I had reported several and then that train hit me...

And I posted in https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/game/gw2/On-Botting-and-What-We-re-Doing-About-It

 

i dont think there is left much to say. man this really SUCKS!

If we deny the problem, it wont be fixed guys. GW2 is having an huge problem with an overpopulation of bots, Servers full 24/7 is not something good, we have long queues in the WvWvW zone because that battlefield is also, full of bots, and im not trolling this is a real issue. But this is a B2P game, and Bots, farmers and hackers also buy copies of the game everyday, Anet and Ncsoft really want to fix the problem?, seriously, for some reason all the NCsoft games have problems with bots.  i gonna give you an example, im in-game right now, my server is Full but in the myst i just found 5 players running around.

Never seen a single bot in the WvWvW areas. They would be stupid to go there anyway, they would only get killed by the enemy.
