    Honestly, it does not matter to me if Trion puts "RP" next to a server name or if the RP community picks one. But what I don't understand is why Trion can't be bothered to simply add two letters as an extension to a server name. Is that *really* asking so much?

    Perhaps members of the RP community can illustrate how easy this is the next time Trion does an AA stream by creating a new Twitch account with -RP added to the end of your name and then joining the chat.

    Really clueless myself, maybe in fear of a low pop server?

    If they add rp servers that'd be cool, if not im sure the roleplayers will find a server eventually either way so it's not a bigdeal really, not sure why people are making a big deal out of it.

    Cause roleplayers are from Mars and can't accept no.

    The keyword here might be 'eventually'.

    For those who get a '4 days headstart' as part of their Founder deal, that 'eventually' makes the headstart kinda moot.

    In fact, I predict the RP-ers will do a full heads up and claim a server before the headstart just for this reason.

    Greed is a fine motivator. Also of RP-ers.

    No doubt they will, like gw2 though i dont see a reason to tag a server as specifically rp since once you tag one you'll end up tagging others(EU players will miver for one as well if the US gets one for instance) so better to just let them claim one unofficially instead.

    Rp servers do tend to use slightly more lorebased names for characters though which helps with immersion(well the ones who arent just deluded thespians/attention seekers or failed novelists at least) so there is one benefit to letting them have there own sandbox to play with.

    The problem with the community picking an unofficial RP server is that many roleplayers will still have no idea where to roll. We miss out on the people who don't post to forums or join community websites.

    We really don't want anything more than simply a tag before the server name saying [RP]. Anything beyond that is something we as a community will work to achieve on our own with the game's mechanics.

    Wanderer since unfortunately we still will might have to pick an unofficial serfer what is your opinion on having everyone vote for that server here? I know you run a rp site yourself but I think since there are three, the vote should be done here instead of sites choosing on their own since everyone doesn't use sites. At least on the official forums the word would get out much faster. And honestly this should be a community decision at a whole, not a one site decision.

    Trion (scapes) if your watching this thread. If you wont give us an RP tag at launch, can you at least open the RP forum section you mentioned in another thread, so that we can post and sticky a thread in there with what ever the unofficial rp server ends up being ?
    Jbeley can you make sure that the sites know that the vote will be done here, by the way it looks the RPArcheAge site looks like they want to make the decision themselves. I don't think that should be the case. I also notice nobody mentioning that the vote should take place here on that site at all. Nothing at all against the two that run that site, but they are both guild leaders which means that their decision is also about how their guilds feel. And there are three sites, the vote should be done here period.

    Create your unofficial server, if people don't want to communicate then oh well that's there problem. By this point they should know there's not gonna be an official RP server so common sense should tell them to jack into the wider RP community long enough to see what others are gonna do. If they refuse to do that, then screw them they probably wouldn't be good RPers anyway.
