    The servers are back up after maintenance (and EG back up again), so let the ganking begin!

    If you do venture outside, be sure to bring friends!

    god, this patch is taking aaaaaaaaaaaaaages to download...

    i'v ejust spent an hour reading the US forums about the new Honour system...and it just depresses the hell out of me. I'm probably just gonna end up on a RP server or something. I don't mind PVP at all, if I have a chance, but where is the fun in being killed over and over again? Apparently there is a lot of Corpse camping going on, as well as on quest givers/windriders.

    not to complain, but how many threads do we need? Maybe we should lock a couple of the older ones now and concentrate on one thread.

    Just a thought.

    Oh, and I'll probably pick it up a couple of weeks after release. No ideas on horde/alliance but most probably a pvp server and either a druid, walock or mage.

    why not set up a website where we can keep the high traffic chat of off the EG forum and keep a list of everyone who's interested?

    That'll keep you busy :)

    This is a good thread, there are only two others that I've seen, one is mainly about the Beta and the other is about pre-ordering.

    Think it will be more useful as a log of which server name people are on. I assume it will only be release day when we find out what the server names are though.

    If this is going to become the main WOW thread, then fair enough. That's why I said we should probably lock the other threads so we keep all the traffic in here.

    Sheesh, kids today, don't you even read? ;)

    Sorry Panda, but your specified guild name is actually against the rules - your not allowed to use titles such as "Elite" or "King".

    Anyway, i'll be playing it on release date, i'll stick to a PvP server and i'll be a Nightelf Hunter called Pirotic.

    Easiest way to go about it is like we did for the Beta.

    First person on, probably someone who has booked the day off, picks a server and joins it. Then posts the server name into this thread. Everyone checks this thread and joins the same server.

    Once everyone is on, probably later in the day, we can start to collect together names and sides. From there we can build the respective guilds up for Alliance / Horde players.

    Oh, and for 1 (or was it 10) Gold I believe you can create you own Guild Tabard with your own little design on it to hand out to new members.

    I have the day booked off, but sadly EG will be down so i cannot post what server i'll join.

    So we need to agree before hand ideally, i'll suggest PvP1

    ah crap EG is down over the afternoon of friday, so yes this could be difficult. I would however recommend not choosing ANY of the first numbered servers.

    Reasons for this is that not all of us will be playing from day one, so in order to allow all of us to join over the months, we choose some higher number say 20+ for both the Horde and Alliance Server (must be different servers!).

    I havnt got an email yet from simply, so I may be out of luck on friday :(

    edit: clarification

    Depending what time the servers go up and with the good news from simplygames ill be on asap as I have the day off so ill post a PvP horde server. (you cant have a character on both sides of a single server.)

    As I think Nuttah mentioned in another thread (edit now this one :D)It may be worth picking a server a bit further down the list to avoid the ques. They will also give the servers silly names if the US site is anything to go by.

    Cant really do much till release day..

    /twiddles thumbs

    (Double edit: Nuttah dont expext any emails, i sent a nice email to SG asking when they are shipping and the response was shpping tomorrow.)

    cheers Panda,

    remember EG WILL BE DOWN ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON!

    so we may have a few issues synchronising our server usage. I find blind panic works for me, failing that some patience :)

    nice.
    Anyone got another forum we can post on to try and synchronise which servers we populate? I only post on two and the other won't do unfortunately.

    Any thoughts on this? In case MP doesn't get his act together? ;)

    Edit: Christ I'm dense. We can all congregate in the EG IRC channel of course. Double doh!

    Has anyone found any info on what time Blizzard is likely to open the servers on Friday?

    I believe for the US launch they were up from midnight but I'm assuming it won't be the same here.

    Anyone clued up?

    (here's to hoping that Blizzard don't open the EU servers at 9am PST.....!)

    MP, I have plenty of access to webspace - if you want to send any pages over to me I can up them. Or alternatively, if you keep the top of this thread up to date I can produce a page with the results.

    Drop me a line at 'muterobert at hotmail dot co dot uk' if you need me to do owt.

    Edit: Just noticed Pirotic's post. :p

    Hi Panda!

    I've done the dirty deed - World of Warcraft is ordered from Simply Games, thanks to your advice. So we're going to be seeing some more of Flibble =)

    Are we still posting WoW player details in this thread then? If so, my character will potentially be a Tauren shaman (horde). Hmmm, I can see I'm going to have to give this some serious thought over the next couple of days.

    Makes me tempted to Ebay my CE.

    Maybe we should all use X-fire to communicate regarding server. Or setup a simple email ring.

    I'll be there, playing as Clert, who'll probably be an undead shadow priest or something.

    Feel free to harass me!
