The Progenitor: so all to PvE/RP?

Hi there
I'm about to reroll (EU), but was trying to find a populated, popular, cool server to do so.
According to http://www.torstatus.net/shards/eu The Progenitor (EU PvE RP) is the most active.
A normal trend for the game? (game fidelity of the RP player base)
A temporary state?
How do you see it yourself, and whats your guess for the future?
Thanks for sharing your opinion on the matter.

Nice server with nice people, about 150 (avg.) at peak on each side's fleet.

Some really nice guilds. Some daft player names. A few idiots.

8/10 (minus 2 for odd fleet crap spammed).

Ofc that may all change with F2P. Who knows!
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. But SWTOR F2P!?!? Time to die.

Thanks for your reply!

Oh I dont see the F2P harm servers, on the contrary in fact: more people will play the game, which is good!

I'll reroll on the Progenitor then, cheers.

You got it wrong, it's RP/PvE not the other way around.
THE IMPERIAL INQUISITION

An Imperial Heavy RP/Social Guild(The Progenitor)

mmmm whats the difference??

Side question:
The legacy name is for one server, right?
I'll have to chose a new one on that server?

I play Progenitor\Sith & Red Eclipse\Republic

I keep my sides seperate out of personal preference, but I must say they are both nice populated servers, sometimes a bit too populated (Blackhole i'm looking at you)

As for why people choose a RP Server, I can only say I always do if there is a choice, I don't RP myself but I think it adds an element of realism to the server as your running around.

So it is possible to play on a RP server withour engaging in RP ? How does this work in a flashpoint then ?. I do like the idea of a RP server hoping to see more mature players.

You don't RP in a flashpoint. I play on The Progenitor, but don't RP (not in an RP guild, can't find drop-ins at the cantina). I use the LFG and none of the people I've grouped with have RP'd with Serevin or Malgus or whoever. It's quite simple really; if you don't RP, you don't.

If you want to RP in Flashpoint, then get a group together for that, like most RP.

Yes. RP is entirely optional, you have to seek it out. If someone does approach you in tells or something, just tell them you aren't interested and be on your merry way.

I've been playing on the prog since launch and have never seen anyone try to RP in a flashpoint.
