Poll: Which PVP Server?

Post by Xelissa » Wed Feb 23, 2011 11:02 am

Let's do a quick couple of polls. The top two of this poll will move on to face off against each other unless even if all the outstanding votes were moved to the second most popular choice, it would not be enough to tie with the first most popular choice.

Also, is Byriel okay for our PVE server with everyone in case people get fed up with the PVP server?

I voted for "None of these - I want to play on Briarcliff/Seastone/Lotham" just because I wanted french toast and got stuck with pancakes....


In truth I dont care where we go. There will be those people that just rub others the wrong way on every server.

I don't care what you are doing, so much
as the idiotic way that you are doing it.

Byriel sounds like a plan for PVE if we get fed up.

I voted for Deepstrike, but I have only a very mild preference for it vs. Reclaimer (either is ok)

Where will Goon Squad live?

We will be playing on:
Briarcliff PVP/Defiant as Goon Squad. To get into this guild register on the forums at http://www.riftgoons.com and request access there.
At the moment this is the "main" goon group.

----------------------------------------------------

Briarcliff PVP/Guardian as The Nazgun to register go to http://www.thenazgun.org/forum/index.php

----------------------------------------------------

Belmont PVE/Defiant as Impaired Judgement. To register go to http://impairedjudgment.enjin.com/

----------------------------------------------------

Euros will be playing on Whitefall PVP/Defiant as Goon Squad. Please register on and post in the euro section of http://www.riftgoons.com not the nazgun forums.

I voted Deepstrike, but Reclaimer would be okay too. As of right now, Deepstrike has the most posts in its forums, but I expect that to change soon.

ETA: Byriel is fine for PVE in case we get merged with Briarcliff in 3 months or something, haha.

Reclaimer's server forums for guilds are pretty scant at the moment.

Here's the links to current guild lists for Deepstrike and Reclaimer:

What I see looking at the servers:

Deepstrike
Guardian Side: Very mature and mostly laid back. Looks like a good community.
Defiant Side: Okay overall, but a good number of elitist guilds and a couple of what will clearly be annoying guilds ("Climax," really?) Also, Lords of the Dead (LotD) are rolling there... I wasn't around when they were but this is what they say about Shadowbane:
Shadowbane- LotD was a founding member of the LAPD nation, defeated the Rolling 30's nation, dominated the Scorn Server.
Reclaimer
Guardian Side: A lot of smaller guilds, but they seem relatively mature. A couple guilds have emphasis on raiding.
Defiant Side: a good number of mature guilds that are not all full of teenagers; however, a couple of hardcore raiding guilds, and at least one that will probably go on forever about how awesome they were in WoW (Apathy).

EDIT: Worry - Deepstrike has a lot of posts in their general thread (more than Briarcliff) and a good number of large guilds planning to roll there - possible there may be a queueing issue for this sever? :shock:

Question: so if the goons aren't rolling on Lotham, maybe we should consider it as well? Looks like the population will be even on Lotham between factions - strong guardian presence.

If it comes down to it, I'd rather take the busier server than the less busy one. I want to avoid server transfers at all possible.

I do, too, but it's kind of impossible in a head start to determine what servers will be busy or not because things will change come 1 March and beyond.

I don't really care where we go, I just thought Reclaimer was a cool name. Regardless of where we choose, there are going to be ass hats and nice people. Don't wanna get too hung up choosing, though, because tomorrow is Head start! WHOO HOOO!

Guild list for Deepstrike: http://forums.riftgame.com/showthread.p ... ant-Guilds

Many of the guilds have over 40 members rising up to over 100 - and this is just defiant side. To me, this sounds like guaranteed queuing for at least the first week if not longer, and lots of waiting around for mob respawn. Another reason I'm favoring a medium pop. server is if there are tons of big guilds and tons of players on the server we play on, I seriously doubt we'll ever get a crack at the raid rifts. They have cooldowns, probably at least several hours long, and their spawns are random.

Reclaimer has some trashtalkers over in their server forums; however. So far, I'm actually leaning towards Lotham, but that's just me. Maybe you guys are seeing different trends than me over in the server forums.
