First off, are there any rough statistics for like a top 3 on shard population. I logged onto baja a while back and there was no one, LITERALLY NO ONE. So I jumped over to pacific and began rebuilding my account there (I had quit and pretty much every thing I had was outdated). While I was building up my account I did see signs of an actual community, but one thing I noticed was Atlantic had Sooo many more options for armor choices, vendors, etc... a few websites atlantic trade was, well, bustling with activity. I logged on ATL the middle of the night and there was PvP action going on which is always a good sign I live in CA and my ping is roughly 55ish to my shards over here, atlantic put me at a steady 115. A big part of my enjoyment comes from being around people, whether it be getting ganked or bank sitting. Would you say it's worth it to move with the ping increase? Does anyone know if I would notice any lag?? I made a character, bought a horse and started running places. I didn't notice anything. Thoughts? Opinions? Also, If I will be participating in pvp with a higher ping, does either mage, archer, or melee dexer offer a better cushion for higher ping players? Or is it pretty much the same all the way around??
