Just got Guild Wars 2.

I want to know what server I should go to.

BrunoBRS's Sig says Fort Aspenwood but heck that Server is full as heck right now. Should I wait till it's free or go for a different one?

Unless you want to join someone, all servers are pretty much the same in term of population. Even the newest servers (kaineng and Devona) have a good population. The only difference is the world versus world ranking ( linky ), where some servers (like mine, Borlis pass) just suck ;)

If you want to WvW better to get on a competitive server and queue up Borderlands then once in there queue up Battlegrounds (if you want to get in there).

I have used the guild chat. Everyone just seems like they're 80 already and doing their own thing at this point.

well at lv80, one of the things to do is go back to old areas and get 100% exploration :P and some of these lv80s, like me, have alts they like to play.

Free server transfers are still up so it's not too late. Last night, I even saw Jade Quarry at "high" and they're 99% of the time always "Full." When it changes to high, you can transfer to it. I've tried this and it works. Yak's Bend has a very healthy PVE population. At peak hours, it's pack with PVE'ers. Even at 2am, there are quite a number of people playing (even in starting areas).

Generally speaking, just because a server is FULL or HIGH, that doesn't mean the population there are doing what you want to do. There's actually a poll that was taken at Asura Labs that might give you a good idea of where to go. Whether you're into WvW or PVE, or both. Don't think that just because a server is high/full that there will be people doing pve, or they'll be successful in WvW.

Alot of servers are full?! b-b-but I looked at Xfire and the game is dyign!!!11!!! LOL Seriously, though. I couldnt be happier where I am (Fort Aspenwood). Fort Aspenwood is a good server. it has its ups and downs in WvW, but I think it makes it that much more entertaining. I tend to PvE during off-peak times (im in Australia) and DEs barely result into zergs or a fight for enemy tagging, even in the 80 zone. sPvP matches are cross server, but the lobby isnt, but there are always PUGs forming in the lobby for free tournaments, but that's if you're into that thing. - Anyway just ask in Guild chat if you're keen on doing anything or need something.
