Depends on what region you're in and what type of server you want to play on.
My understanding is that pretty much any non-APAC server is fine.

Yeh bit difficult to give advice when you don't disclose your territory. I think Red Eclipse has been having rollback and queuing issues lately, so maybe avoid that one

I'd say it's save to say you just pick whichever server best suits you as a .type. of server, as there's usually only one per area anyway

if you live in the USA and like PVP, but aren't huge into RP, for example.. then your choice is either The Bastion (West Coast) or Prophecy of the Five (East Coast)

if you live in Europe and don't like PVP, but aren't huge into RP, then your choice is Red Eclipse (unless you want to play on a French or German server, of course :P)


from my understanding it can happen on every server (except APAC) that you get a queue during absolute peak times or holidays, but they aren't very long usually.

believe me, that's a good thing.

I play on the Harbinger which is usually the highest populated server, but I have never seen a queue. I think the queues that pop up every now and then are related to a bug.

Harbinger had queues a couple of times... just after the server collapsed. Think they've fixed that problem...

Er... there's nothing about RP servers that requires RP. You can play on an RP/RP-PvP server without being "huge into RP". They are just labeled so people who like RP can have an easier time gathering. I haven't RPed a minute in my life, but I play on Ebon Hawk (RP) and Jung Ma (RP-PvP). I'd say that only 10% (or less) of the players on the server are RPing at any particular time.

Why?

The RP-tagged servers generally have more mature players (especially comparing Jung Ma with Prophecy of the Five) and generally more supportive communities. There is generally fewer jerks around and people are generally more understanding and willing to help each other. And the populations aren't hurting either: Ebon Hawk actually seems to be one of the most consistently busy East Coast servers. Also, there is generally much better balance between factions on the RP servers.

Start on whichever server you like, but I like to play on The Harbringer.

Unless of course you live in APAC then it's the best option. But yea seriously i would just roll on a server in your region for the ping. Unless you don't mind playing on 2 bars with high latency.
