Greetings!

The official head start is underway! We have picked BLACKGATE as our homeworld. We'd like to invite anyone who's playing GW2 in our community to join us in Blackgate so we can stomp our way through the World versus World competitions together!

World populations are always changing, so if you see Blackgate is full, a little patience will award you with a chance to choose it. You might need to exit and restart the login process in order to update the World info. You may also change worlds at a later date by paying a "fee"...2000 gems at last report.

Hope to see you in game!

Udate to my previous post on changing Homeworlds.

Some excerpts from the official GW2 site:


Guild Wars 2>News>A World of Choice – The Regions of Guild Wars 2
A World of Choice – The Regions of Guild Wars 2

by Regina Buenaobra on August 16, 2012

There will be 3 major regional designations for the release of Guild Wars 2:

Europe: Defined as Western Europe and Eastern Europe. Players in these
regions connect to the European datacenter.
North America: Defined as Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Players
in these regions connect to the North American datacenter.
Other: All countries not already listed above will connect to the North
American datacenter.

A more in-depth list of countries and their designations can be found in our knowledge base.

After you successfully register your Guild Wars 2 account, it becomes a global account. You can roam to any part of the world and still access the game.


Choose your World

The very first time you start the game, you’ll be asked to select your home world.

By default, we display the worlds that are hosted in your regional data center, but you will be able to select a home world from either region at this time. So, for example, if you are a European player who prefers to play on the North American worlds, you’re free to do so.

At launch, players will be able to transfer between worlds freely. However, once server populations have largely settled and stabilized, world transfers will be restricted to once a week and cost a variable amount of gems based on the population of the world being transferred to.

In time, we’ll also introduce free “guesting,” which will allow players to visit other worlds as guests as long as they have friends on those worlds. This feature will be free, but guest players will not be able to enter World vs. World, and the Power of the Mists bonuses from their home world will continue to apply to their characters.

Also..in following GW2's Twitter feed, I see that they have raised the capacity limits for each world recently, so that should help in getting into the world of your choice.
