So for awhile now I have been debating on whether or not to make a character on an RP server. I mean I like RP'ing
so how could it go wrong? Well there is only one real problem I can see.. And that is that there is too big of a
selection to choose from server wise. I am an East-coast player, and I would like to know which server would be best to join.
Kath Hound, Lord Adraas, Rubat Crystal, Sanctum of the Exalted, Shien, The Ebon Hawk, Jung Ma, Ven Zallow

I have no preference on PvP or PvE, it doesn't matter to me. I would just like to deal with less grievers. Friendlier the better.


Additional Information:

[Republic]
[Character Bio #1]
[Name: Unknown]
[Class: Smuggler, Gunslinger]
[Race: Twi'lek]
[Color: Blue or Green] (Idk need help on this lol xD)
[Crafting: Armstech, Scavenging, Slicing (or Investigation, but I would rather Slicing)]
[Back Story: Currently being made..]

[Republic]
[Character Bio #2]
[Name: Unknown]
[Class: Jedi Knight, Guardian]
[Race: Mirialan]
[Color: Light Green]
[Crafting: Biochem, Bioanalysis, Diplomacy]
[Back Story: Currently being made..]

Before 10-20 people jump in here with hands waving, all screaming, "Pick me! Pick me!", I'm going to suggest that you try the following:

Create a throw-away level 1 Republic character on 2-3 of the servers, /cjoin their ooc channels and ask the people there how the RP seems to them - what their opinions are. If one of the communities feels like a fit to you, there you go!

You can find ooc channel info in various server threads.

Good luck!

^ Best response to one of these threads ever! Mainly because it's so true that I laughed.
To be one with the Force you must understand yourself and how your power reflects your nature.

Since we are not getting server forums from BW you could try **********.com/content an unofficial forum page, see if anyone from the rp servers are active there, or start your own thread, find people to rp with. But the suggestions to try 2-3 (or more) till you find a good fit is a good bet.

Very true

I also want to add that you should do this during your normal play times. I've noticed these channels tend to have RP in bursts certain times of the day, so make sure the time you play is active.

I don't think RP servers have -less- griefers. Just weirder players.
