The PvE zones on the most servers i transfered to were dead, empty, ghost towns never mind if in Europe or in the USA.

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......

Thanks for the laugh. I don't know why I laughed but I did so thanks. :) To your topic I have no idea though I did login the other day to transfer to a new server for a guild and couldn't because it was full :( The rest of the servers said full or  high so not sure why your having a issue.

On my server game is very top heavy and loeer zones are almost empty (i roll alts a lot). The situation may differ from server to server.

So unless you have data from all the US and EU servers you can not say or even make an educated guess that servers need merging.

The only servers that need merging are the ones which are sitting on medium since first month.

I think Xmas will bring a bunch more people into the game again. You will see more folks starting and making new characters. Its true though, I havent been able to form a party for CM Story in over 3 weeks, even with a guild of 499 players O.o

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....

I believe in life before death... So dont forget to enjoy it while you still can.

High level players keep zerging the higher level zones, while the lower level zones are just as much fun ... Tough at prime time every zone has more then enough people around to do those boss events.

 

When start people understanding that lower level zones can still give good loot when you´re max level.

I started a new character which is fun. 

And hey i am not complaining about the game itself, i complain about finding to players to group or do events.

Hey guys, i am not the only one thinking that an extreme amount of players left this game which is the reason for the empty PvE areas.

WvW is another thing but also there on the BG´s i see less players and less queue´s

so calm down a server merger will be needed in the near future.

I'm still thoroughly enjoying GW2 but have to agree that many of the mid-level zones (25-50) are dead.   My main is 48 and I rarely run into other people while doing hearts.  I used to really enjoy the DE's and world bosses but these days I tend to stear clear of them.

I think level boosting for PvP really hurt the PvE leveling experience.  It sounded good on paper but in reality ANET allowed a large portion of their player base to skip the traditional leveling process making the game feel less populated for PvE focused players.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy being able to jump into WvW with my friends who are already level 80 but these types of shortcuts do come with some consequences.

Agreed, I play peak hours and enjoy the lower level areas as there are enough people to do events with some challege. I havent found one completely empty. Sometimes the event is lost even. I find this more fun then the mass zerg that was happening at release. The events seemed overwhelmed then. The high level zones around a few events still have this overwhelmed zergy feel.

these threads are becoming absolutely ridiculous. clearly, GW2's pop has risen since release because we no longer have medium servers in America. half full, half high. 

where is everyone? use your common sense and observation.

1) Orr 

2) WvW

3) dungeons and spvp to a lesser extent

 

until they drastically buff world rewards, people will keep grinding karma in the higher zones. just because everyone is doing endgame stuff does not mean the server pop is any lower. that being said, ive never been in a zone alone on Dragonbrand.

I'm starting to see the first grumblings of low population. There was a thread on the official forums yeasterday that used the term "ghost town". 

 

I've been logging in every week or so and checking the WvW ques. Lastnight on Jade Quarry entering the Eternal Battleground was instant. The contest was pretty close too. I remember waiting 2-4 hours to get in there about a month or so ago. 

 

Active spvp servers has went for 200+ at any given time to 40 aswell.
