I already made a poll in http://www.blackdesertroleplayers.com/  but decided to do it here with more participants. This way we can have an idea of how big both communitys will be. If your decision depends in what server is the most populated, please vote on the one you wish to play in and then feel free to comment that fact    :D

I doubt the populations would be anything than massive on both servers for some time. I'll be on the NA servers.

This game has far too many roleplayers eyeing it. So long as we have a dedicated server, I don't think we'll have any problems finding RP.

I'll be on NA servers, though I'm not so sure it will be at launch. My main interests are the blader and ninja, so I may be waiting.

Actually mixing the RP, PvP, and PvE (under development right? XD) communities would be easy in BDO. RPers can make events undisturbed in Cities and Towns and even outside. PvPers always have their arenas and battlegrounds but I am sure RPers will make friends with some which can even serve as a bodyguard :) PvE community tends to get along with everyone since they simply seek to conquer dungeons and explore lands. I dont think you need a dedicated server, but more of an expanded friends list xD

Not everyone on a RP server needs to be a roleplayer, but it is preferred that they still respect it by not trolling roleplays. They only reason dedicated servers are a good idea for it is because while the community itself is large enough to run on it's own server, it is not large enough to split amongst many and still be viable. When we don't get one, the community always designates an unofficial RP server, but unless you're in the loop, you don't know what server that is and we still end up too fragmented.

I don't know. The players opinions differ a lot when it comes to these. :S I never ment an RP server, just asking in which continent you'll all play. :/
But since you brought it up: I thought of the chance of having a RP server for both the NA and EU communitys, this way we could all play together. xD

I know there are no perfect solutions, but wich would you still prefer? o.O Feel free to vote on the pool or comment :D

I know some are into it, but I don't want split PvP/PvE servers. In that respect, there is nothing different about a RP server outside of it being officially supported so everyone knows where to go. I personally search for RP sites and such before I start a game as it tells me what server I should roll on, where the hubs are, and lore I would have otherwise missed on my own....but not everyone does that. You don't want new, or simply unaware players lost and/or quitting because the couldn't find fellow roleplayers. That person may have been the best roleplayer to ever grace the internet, but they derped and went to the wrong server.

We all just missed out.

I don't want to miss out. 

Please don't make me miss out...

Yeah, I didn't think this game would actually be splitting PVE/PVP servers? Either way, the community can come together and agree on the server choice for Rpers on NA and EU side, with a simple Poll.

Playing NA myself. And yeah, I'd also hate to see a pvp pve split. I understand why those functions exist in many games, but where BDO is concerned, I feel that PvP can make for a good component to player driven stories and content.

When I was in JP there were Two servers (3 now) and both were a large cooking pot of RP, PvP, and PvE. If it worked there I can see it working here.

RP in normal servers for me, always manage to make it work so why not? ^^

I've tried both and while it is indeed possible to RP on a normal server, you have a larger congregation of people on a dedicated one. RP is just that much easier to find...and in some cases, accidentally stumble upon. It's a more immersive feeling when you are surrounded by it vs having to actually look for it and in rare cases, not find any for extended periods of time.

Now that I can edit I added a new option to the pool. It's a shame I can't change my vote, if I could I would want the last option.

Probably just the regular NA server unless they make a dedicated RP server.
