Jumping ship... To another ship?

So, after some uncomfortable dramatics, I've decided to switch shards and transfer toons to it (curse the 5/ 3day limit) I'm coming from the Excelsior shard which I thought was a decent place to re-kindle my love of the CoH-verse. I was (unfortunately) proven it wasn't. 

 

Now I know that no matter where one goes bullshit follows etc, etc. Yet I'm a long time Vet of the CoH Community, I'm not backing down. I do however prefer to just go somewhere else, and here I'm choosing "Torchbearer". Honestly, is it worth my efforts? (Please spare me the obvious) I still would like some honesty.

I think our server is pretty good.  Less peak population then excel but plenty of teams.  6 hami raids every day if you like and 3 extra on saturday.  MSR on friday after the hami raids.

 

I spent a few MSR on excel and i hated the general and lfg chat,  couldnt wait to get back to torch each time.  There is less chat but less 'excel?' Im not really sure how to describe it but you should know since you were there.

 

I might give you an ambrosia on accident at some point.  I think my game is broke,  it keeps doing that.

Excelsior is the new Freedom server equivalent. Highest population and the kind of players that flock to the highest population servers

Everlasting (the unofficial role-playing server) has the 2nd highest population. [EDIT :: ... so kind of like Virtue]

Torchbearer is like the #3 server population-wise most of the time.

Reunion is the European servers, so they tend to have more actively during European active hours. Good people on this server but the population is low most of the time.

Indomitable is the unofficial PVP server. I think it takes a significant hit for that. Part of that is because CoH really isn't built for PVP, and the in-game attitudes of some that are PVP focused. All that in consideration. it is the lowest population server.

 

I find Torchbearer to have a very civil crowd with people both looking for teams and those willing to run teams.

As always in THE CITY, generally if you recruit for a team, you will find people that want to team with you. This is because people are hesitant to recruit/lead a team, but they will join in a heartbeat.

Added note that Everlasting could be compared to Virtue

I like Torch! Great fun and first server I came back to when the game relaunched. If you want efficiency and best-in-class players(imo :P), you've hit the right server! Not that the others are unplayable/horrible or anything. Pretty fun folks I'd say!

While Ev is my "home server", I do have a few characters over on Torch, too... Traffic level and culture-wise, it reminds me a lot of Liberty back in the live days if that helps your assessment any.  It's the quiet suburbs of the City world, but the neighbors are a good bunch.
