Excelsior or Torchbearer?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Returning today, and wondering: where are these two servers located geographically?  What other differences are there between them?

Both servers are located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.  The differences are that Excelsior has more people, and I and my SG coalition play on Excelsior.  Therefore, that automatically makes Excelsior cooler. 😉

My mains are all Torchbearer, which is my Amazon theme server; I was an early adopter.  But each server but Reunion has at least one character; that character will be a tanker,  to participate in the rotating Tanker Tuesdays.  And a supergroup of some kind. 

 

And with Reunion it may just be a matter of time.  I do know a bit of French,  but it's mostly passive knowledge, and keeping up with the slang is as difficult as it is with English.

Why not both?  I've met some very nice people on both servers.

Heck, why not all the servers. 🙂

 

And welcome back to the fold!

I like 'em both. And then, there are things on both that annoy me.  Ultimately, they are exactly the same, because so many people play on all the servers.

I'm primarily on Indomitable since the others all have people camping my Global for a player name...

I have this theory that people pick Excelsior because it's at the top of the list, which explains the higher player count (which includes me, by the way).  A second theory goes that it got a bump from Stan Lee's passing.  I think many of us are here, including the game itself, because of him and his contribution to comic book culture and the superhero genre.

The main thing to remember about choosing your server is that with homecoming you are granted 5 server transfers per week refreshing every Wednesday. I watch global chat channels for all servers and will just hop over if something piques my interest.


Currently on fire.
