Those of you playing, which side, which server, name?

I started out as NC for the hour I've tried so far, can't remember which server though. Finally got into GW2 so have spent some time with that. But if there are a few playing I wouldn't mind trying it with some VC and semi organization :)

Scared to go out and buy this. Watched a beta trailer on Youtube, and this might be pretty addictive. Looks nice though :)
I'll go and play Darksiders 2 first, and when i finished it i'll check how you guys are holding up.

Then there's GW2, i still haven't got it. I'm afraid to get addicted to these games again and i'll fck up my beginner stage social life again.

Single player FPS games i play now, i can stop playing after like 2 hours. Multiplayer games can stick me behind the screen for over 5 hours if not more. I kinda lack the discipline to stop :P

Been playing a lot the last few days on server Euro 2 as an NC char called FLIPSPICELAND. Rossi - tried adding you (ukrossi) and it just says invalid char name. Am half-enjoying it, half-despising it. When you die, your spawn option is miles away from where you die or where any action is. I reckon 70% of my time playing is just running. I dont know if it's any different if you're in a squad or an outfit but it's boring the shit out of me?

Name is rossiuk mate. Theres going to be a char wipe in a few days time anyway.

The spawn system is changing radically in the next patch. Galaxies are no longer spawns unless they are very highly specced, instead the Sunderer troop transport will become the main mobile spawn, much like the AMS was in PS1.

I know what you mean about being spawned away from the fight, but thats mostly because of the very high cost of Galaxies in resources. Sunderers are less than half the price so we should see more of them.

If you're finding there are no spawns that usually means theres very little influence in the area you are fighting, most of the capture points are enemy and so you'll need to fall back anyway. Squad leaders should be using spawn beacons too.

I had the same problem regarding squad mates when I was playing. I seem to remember it was much easier to keep track of your group in PS1.
