Bloodlust was widely considered as the most competitive PvP cluster with Blackrock and Tichondrius servers being the 2 premiere servers in the cluster.

So the fact that its an unofficial Aussie server does not mean that its not going to be any good. To the contrary in previous games the unofficial Aussie servers have proved to be amongst the most hardcore server for PvP activity.

Yes i am sure we will have lots of fun with that.

Swiftsure sounds interesting. Is there any room for a Canadian? What's the Rep to Emp ratio like at the moment? When are the peak hours, and what's the queue like during those times?

Yeah we had a long discussion about this on the 12th. Essentially we're bringing about 1k players total. I believe I heard the oceanic daisy chain was about 3,000 players? however I'm not sure on the numbers.

Bear in mind these players all took the time to organize and get guilded pre-launch so it's logical to expect an above average playerbase. I know there's at least one more daisy chain that landed on Ss, but I don't know the details on it.

I believe swiftsure was the 7th server to hit full this morning. I believe I counted something like 105+ servers with 19 full at around noon CST.

You don't know how happy it makes me to read this. I was crossing my fingers that my playgroup would settle on a decently populated, active, healthy server. I played on one of the largest servers for 6 years on WoW, and despite the queues, absolutely loved it (we had a healthy Australian representation too).

When I experimented with LOTRO, we unknowingly picked the lowest populated server and it was a miserable experience from that perspective. It seems, so far at least, the LOTRO experience has been avoided.

I'm hoping to get my early access Wednesday or Thursday, then I'll get to say hi to everyone in-game!
