Switching Servers: Back To Gandara.
 posted by Vindicare
Without going into the details of our decision, we have moved our guild from Aurora Glade to Gandara. By doing so, we are taking advantage of A.Net's free transfer window that is still open but might be closed any day.

Suffice to say, Aurora Glade did not meet our expectations, as especially the non-human higher tier zones appeared to be completely deserted while WvW still had long waiting queues, as our server was home to a major Russian WvW alliance.

So we are back to Gandara, our Home World during beta and runner-up in our server poll. Please adjust your accounts accordingly (character selection > bottom left there's a button).

Aurora Glade It Is.
 posted by Vindicare
After months of headaches over the question on which Home World (server) to play, and weeks of monitoring the EU servers and their popularity rankings, we have finally completed our guild poll.

And even though Gandara looked like a sure winner for most of the time, the winner is Aurora Glade. One major reason being that Gandara simply has become too popular - somewhat becoming the new "It-"server.

Aurora Glade, on the other hand, offers all what we were looking for:
  • A high population, yet not one of the Top 3 servers; Gandara simply has become too crowded, threatening us with overflow zones, WvW queues and guild members not able to select it in the first place

  • One of the highest ratios of English-speaking guilds and players

  • And of course: A beautiful server name

However, this choice is still not our ultimate decision, as we will closely monitor server populations and tidings during the free transfer period. Once A.Net announces that free transfers will come to an end, we will reevaluate the situation and decide whether Aurora Glade is going be our definite Home World.

New Website Section: Compendium
 posted by Vindicare
As you might have noticed, there is now a new menu item called Compendium. While we are fully aware of the fact that everybody and their brother uses the official GW2 Wiki to quench their thirst for information, doing so is still a scavenger hunt.

We try to pre-select important topics to give clean overviews and aggregated information, so that the whole picture of GW2 mechanics becomes clear.

The Compendium starts off with presenting the basic concept of GW2's combat, which is built around three pillars: Damage, Support and Control. Furthermore we provide a map of Effects as well as in-depth indexes of Boons and Conditions.
