Yeah, I think that more people will leave the server, even without the drama-baiting the whole KISS thing has brought upon Gunnar's Hold. However, there is a pretty solid core of guilds and/or people that have declared that they will stay until the bitter end.
A community-wide migration seems not feasible, as moving one guild as a whole without it breaking apart is already very tricky (there seem to be a lot of such stories going around). Personally, I am one of the people who will stay with Gunnar's Hold, or rather, the RPS guild.
It is also worth noting that even when people decide to leave the server, they can still be part of a guild on another server. As far as I know there will also be expanded guesting implemented in future updates. Concerning the sever-hopping behaviour we have seen lately, both of guilds unhappy with a given community and opportunists that leave servers that are doing not so good in WvWvW matchups, I think that ArenaNet has missed the opportunity to stop that in time. That's a real shame.
Just a quick bump for this - great show tonight everyone. I was both surprised and a little bit proud to see so many [RPS] tags on Mumble tonight. Love it.

I'd advocate - daylight WvW servers or something - effectively for people who work / go to school etc. Between say 5pm and midnight the WvW works and allows capping, outside those times it guests you on to one of the larger pop servers or some such - it'd be incredibly artificial and a bit jarring to begin with but in terms of actually allowing an even playing field for servers our side it would probably be better.

Regarding other peeps moving to a dif server and remaining in the guild - yeah they can but since guild upgrades are server specific and the likelihood is they find another guild and represent that meaning they don't see guild chat its largely pointless :/

On this subject, I believe the plan has always been to allow free means of transfer until Guesting is introduced. Guesting seems rather delayed at this point, but ANet seem to be sticking to that plan regardless.

Hey guys just wanted to let the right people know that I've signed up to the community forums and have requested to join the RPS guild group so I can be gain access to the WvW mumble. Would be grateful to the group leaders to grant me permission. Ive been playing WvW with Duke and co using either Rocksaw, Remaire or Koyne. Thanks
Done, Shalaska. Hopy you enjoy your time with the community!
Hey guys, can someone also approve [RPS]Corn on there? I put in the request last night.
EDIT: Sorry, [RPS]Corn is the mumble username, I'm registered on their forums as manveruppd, it occurred to me that that's the one you need.

Sorry to turn this into a Gunnar's Hold request thread but would love an approval when it's convenient.
Jarhok Belouve is my username on the forum, I have requested to join the RPS group.
EDIT: Oh yes have been playing with Duke and others in WvWvW and have been having a whale of a time .
at risk of saying something out of turn, can I suggest that you post your introduction in the introduce yourself thread. At which point I'm sure and appropriate person will do something (it may take a day or two).
I did so when I joined the guild, this was specifically for the Gunnar's Hold community as I havn't actively participated in WvWvW
I just approved any outstanding requests, you should be fine now Jarhok. Welcome to the pack!
Oops, sorry guess I should read more carefully.
No probs, thanks chaps
Just have to throw out a mention to everyone in RPS that have taken part in the GH community event. When I was looking at Mumble last night we had the second most members on, and we also kicked all kinds of arse so go us
Just a quick reminder for people looking to join the RPS group of the GH community forum (which is needed to view the WvW forum section). Could you please either post in here or send me a PM with your GW2 IGN or your profile name here so I can check who you actually are. Don't want to come across as paranoid, but I feel like I am kind of responsible for who we allow to see internal stuff.
Just sent a join request (been posting in the comments before, but for some reason I hadn`t used the forums prior to finding out about the group). In-game name is EPICTHEFAIL.5389.
Just a quick inquiry: Does anyone know a person in our guild going under the name of "cannon"? I saw a group membership request on the GH community forums but cannot check the guild roster myself atm (not at home).
