Greetings potential transfers/rerolls to VeCo! In the following posts below you will find a small (and by no means complete) compendium of information you might find useful! Enjoy your stay here! It really is the best RP-PvP server currently live!

Frequently asked questions:

1.) PvP. How is it? Alliance and Horde alike. Which race is the dominate race in BGs? How about World PvP, what's it like?

PVP: BGs are pretty much a 50/50 split. Really, they are! Battlegroups are all merged together now, so it should be less of an issue. Queues are near instant. Check out some of these posters armories. With the exception of folks who always run premades everything is split right down the middle.

TB: It appears that the 1800 honor has taught people how to play the zone more efficiently. Control of TB changes regularly. It seems to be balanced now on the server during prime play time. Early morning and afternoon can be difficult. Usually whichever faction holds it in the early morning keeps it till peak time. Good luck to everyone who queues regularly!

World PVP: Something we can pride ourselves on. Lately, TOR has eaten some guilds but it's been sporadically picking up again. Your best bet, is to ping towns and see what happens!


2.) RP. Very important. How much RP is there? Where are the major RP hubs? How is the quality of RP?

Quality of RP is exceptional here. There isn't any of the Cybermoon/Sexodar garbage here. The story lines are complex, realistic, and above all we don't have anyone pregnant with demon babies, a son of a scorned dragonflight concubine, or lolvampire. I find ally side slightly better than hordeside with numbers, but there are plenty on both. RP is mostly guild centric with very little open RP.

3.)What side is pushing the end game the hardest? How many guilds are really going at it? How accessible is the end game here?

PvE here isn’t the best, but it’s not the worst. I would point out though if you’re looking for progression you’ll need to apply to a competitive guild and go through the process. Check out www.wowprogress.com for our server ranking. We're down near the bottom.

4.) What is the population balance like here?

Overall you're looking at an Alliance:Horde ratio of 1369 level 85 Alliance, & 3069 level 85 Horde. Does that mean horde dominates - 110% no. Alliance frequently win, and put up excellent fights. IMHO, it feels pretty equal.

5.) Last, but not least. Community. What are the people like? What kind of groups exist here? How do people typically treat each other?

The Community remains to be largely unelitist. We do have some of the best and most helpful people around. You won't regret coming here if you abandon your resolve for PVE and have a thirst for Wpvp. Please make an alt and LEVEL it a bit. Spamming trade won't give you a good basis for opinion. There are trolls everywhere. Most of ours are fairly harmless though. But, if you want a real answer, seek out someone from some of the guilds.

A suggestion I could make would be to advertise a rp channel. I checked out Twisting Nether and they do this. It's an effective tool that really seems to bolster a sense of community, and I found it was a useful way to introduce myself to a lot of people quickly.

Excellent Idea. I would love to get more RP channels going.
