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.
This!

Lotham is fine with me. It's not as cool-sounding as Reclaimer but, honestly, who da frak cares. We won't see our server name ever, unless the servers are down and we're staring at locked names.

I only voted for Reclaimer because (it has a cool name) it seemed less populated and had a better defiant/guardian balance.

If Lotham looks lower pop and has a solid Guardian presence, sounds good to me.

I trust you guys and your judgement. I will do some more research to see who looks good, but ultimately you all know more about different guilds than I do, so I will go with whatever you think.

Lotham would also be fine with me.

This is how I see things turning out currently based on forum activity and guild plans to roll on the shards:

Deepstrike:
* High population
* Most Defiant-favored
* Biggest Defiant Guild: Lords of the Dead ~100 members currently. http://forums.riftgame.com/showthread.p ... Recruiting

Reclaimer:
* Medium population
* In-between Defiant-favored
* Biggest Defiant Guild: LEGION (I think) ~35 members currently. http://forums.riftgame.com/showthread.p ... plications

Lotham:
* Medium population
* Least Defiant-favored (seems like the most even split)
* Biggest Defiant Guild: No idea - people aren't posting their numbers. Probably somewhere between 20-30 members.

Snarebrush:
Very few guilds and people planning to roll here at this time.

Spritescar:
Ridiculously defiant-favored.

The High vs. Medium population and Most Defiant-favored vs. Least Defiant-favored both have their own pros and cons. Just comes down to a matter of preference.

Unless there are strong objections, I say we do Lotham.

As an aside, I plan on going home for lunch and creating characters. I'm excited for tomorrow! Also there was a patch tonight.

I would like a server with medium pop server with a slight lean to the Gaurdian side. If it is heavy Gaurdian then I can see issues with the raiding rifts still. If it's close to even then they can't man handle the whole zone for the rift.
I don't care what you are doing, so much
as the idiotic way that you are doing it.

None of the servers actually favor guardians, except for MAYBE PVE servers, possibly?

Lotham is cool. I don't want to play with LotD, so screw Deepstrike.

I played on Scorn in Shadowbane from release, and they greatly overstate their awesomeness.
