    Default Server choice. What's it all about?

    Hello Chaps,

    Just one quick question. Why does server choice matter? From what I'm reading we'll be "... thousands of players fighting simultaneously across several beautiful, massive continents..." but other player posted comments suggest that Player 1 on Server A won't be fighting Player 2 on Server B. Am I correct?

    Barbaresco, the Confused.

    Hey mate,

    There are 3 continents per server and a small selection of servers at present. PCG are on Miller EU so they won't be fighting against anyone from Woodman EU server for example.
    The other major factor is empire choice. If you make a Terran char on one server, you can't make a char from another empire on the same server; it effectively locks it out.
    Hope that answers the question.

    Thanks for the taking the time to reply Jakhara. So it's not one big world with three continents but several copies of a three continent world. I was rather hoping it'd be like EVE. Maybe one day, in the future, obviously, it will be like that, once SOE have gauged the success of PS2.
