LF Advice on Servers and Guild Choices

Hello there,

I have been absent from the game for some time. Originally I had gone with a randomly generated server and was assigned to Dragonmaw (PvP). After doing some research, I discovered that this was a Pacific Time Zone Server. I was looking into starting a new on a Central Time Zone Server and was debating between these four: Emerald Dream (RP-PvP), Lightninghoof (RP-PvP), Maelstrom (RP-PvP) and Twisting Nether (RP-PvP).

I am not looking to get into a hardcore RP experience. I am more looking for a clean, mature and friendly environment. I would like to be participating in all aspects of the game in a casual manner (PvP, PvE, Raid, etc.).

I recently tried out Emerald Dream and the General Chat made me absolutely cringe the whole time I played. I know that every server will have this type of behavior but I was wondering which of these servers seem to have the most helpful and well mannered players.

I have played Guild Wars 2 for about a month now and the general chat was no where near the moronic raunchiness that I found on Emerald Dream and Dragonmaw. I don't understand why this is the case because this is a subscription based game and I figured more working class adults would have access it. Don't get me wrong, there was some moronic raunchiness in Guild Wars 2 but for a majority the player base seemed surprisingly helpful and clean.

I know some might suggest to turn off the general chat but I do like reading the feeds and seeing what people have to say and it seems to give off a slight clue on what the population's personality is like.

Sorry for the long winded explanation. I'll try to wrap up my request in three simple questions.

1) Which of the listed servers seems to have the most insightful and well mannered player base?

2) On your recommended server, would you say alliance players or horde players are more clean, helpful and mature?

3) Are there any guilds that are active, organized and have stood the test of time; that you could recommend to me that would mesh well with all my desired qualities and activities I have listed above?

Thank you so much for reading this post and taking your time to help me out!

Can't speak for any of those servers. However, I can speak for a server you did not list. Its an RP PVE realm - Blackwater Raiders - has a decent base of RP'ers and people are really friendly and helpful there. They aren't gross in trade chat and it was a fun server to just sit around and read trade chat or watch people do random wierdness in the city. However, don't count on progression of any kind. It's a more of a level and have fun realm. They are a Pacific Time Zone server.

2) On your recommended server, would you say alliance players or horde players are more clean, helpful and mature? There are barely any ally players on this server. On the Horde side there are some...interesting people, but I don't get irate and want to smash people's faces in from reading trade chat..so that's a plus. As for helpful - iffy.

3) Are there any guilds that are active, organized and have stood the test of time; that you could recommend to me that would mesh well with all my desired qualities and activities I have listed above?
The only guild that popped into my head would be Ex Cinis Cineris.
There are some "mega" guilds on this server that you could also try out, but I can't speak for them as I have never been in them.
The GM for Whispers of the Horde is a nice person, not sure how the guild is doing, but for a nice leader...there ya go. :)

Come to Maelstrom Alliance. We're a nicely populated server. Not too big, not too small. And our guild, the NRU, has a TON of fun. :)

Thanks for the responses. It's been helpful. I've been getting that the "grass is greener" from each server forum. It's tough finding your way through this mess. Especially since the game is broken into 200+ Servers and then further split by Alliance and Horde. It is so hard to link up and play with people. I'll meet some people some time and there like I'm on such and such server... well... nice talking to ya!
