Don't know if there's another thread for this, but would you guys want to play on a server where a popular streamer plays on too?
I can imagine the server will be more populated because of people wanting to play with said streamer. So finding groups might be easier on these servers. But I can also imagine people want to avoid these servers and the fanbase.
Also, can you even control this on releaseday? Like how am I gonna know which realms will be populated and which won't?
I'll try to actively avoid rolling on a server where a popular streamer plays on, servers where a crowd is drawn to because of a player or guild can end up being pretty toxic. That's been my experience when I rolled on Tarren Mill EU at least, which is where Preach plays, and the home of top guilds like Method, and before them Ensidia. I still regret server transferring to it many years ago, and it's difficult to get off of it now since I have like 8 max level characters on it.
I honestly think you'll be fine even if your server ends up being mid pop, high pop servers do make things slightly easier, and we all like to see the world being as alive and active as possible, but they're not always fun and games either, you do lose a bit of that tightly knit community feeling with them.
