Same here. I played GW2 since launched and leveled up 10 characters to 80. I played it until the megaservers roll in. I guess Gandara is not really populated before the launch of megaservers then? Gandara's EU and I believe that population wise, NA have way, way more players. I play on NA Tarnished Coast since launch btw. That is not how I experienced the introduction part on my server. It's always full and some of them are even guests from other servers. I think if I played on a low pop server, I'll like the megaserver more. One of the best recommendation that players pointed out is instead of megaserver, why not just combine low population servers instead, after all, their main concern is some players don't find enough players to play with. I guess ANet thought that megaserver is the next big thing because TESO has one. One more thing that killed GW2 for me is that the megaserver destroyed the community that players built. There's really no point about it anymore other than WvWvW. Organized server key farming, guild events, server community events, and other server community activities are not possible anymore because of the megaserver. I'm assuming that if GW2 went F2P now, they lost quite a lot of players due to the past and recent changes.
