The full list of European servers can be found listed here, including all the foreign-language servers.

And a bit of further explanation from Magnus, which made me laugh…

So the German servers are based upon the Empire, the Italian based upon Tilea, the French based upon Bretonnia, the Spanish based upon Estalia. We were considering basing the English servers on Albion, but we soon realised that having dozens of servers which in one way or another relate to fog and rain would be quite depressing, so we went with Dwarf and Elf names instead.

Personally, I like the notion of being able to see which language community a server belong to just by its name. Regarding the many Karak- based names, I think we will soon grow to learn these names by heart, and I further doubt that the first half of the name will be mentioned in every-day conversations. Gamers are renown for their ability to abbreviate pretty much anything.

  1. Awesome explanation, they evidently spent awhile thinking about this 😉

    (So …. we could actually invade Bretonnia ….)

  2. Personally, I like fog and rain!!

  3. I hope we can get used to all the Karak names. I always have to check three servers before I find mine on beta (Karak-Norn) 😛

  4. Aw…I demand more fog and rain…it’s the English way, and gives us something else to complain about.

    Oh, and too many Karak/Karag names, that could get confusing.

  5. I imagine shortly they’ll be referred to by whatever word follows Karak or in the trendy K-Norn nomenclature.

  6. I’m with the fog and rain people. I’m sending GOA my new suggested server names:

    Fog
    Mist
    Haze
    Pea-souper
    Cloudy
    Overcast
    Drizzle
    Shower
    Rain
    Thunderstorm
    Monsoon
    Met Office Severe Weather Warning
    Sunny Intervals With Heavy Showers Moving In From The West
    Warnings Of Gales in Viking North Utsire South Utsire Forties Fisher and Fair Isle
    Southeasterly 5 to 7, occasionally gale 8 in northwest. Rough or very rough. Rain. Moderate or good occasionally poor.

  7. Ha ha

  8. And don’t forget :

    Sleet
    Hail
    Mizzle
    Freezing Fog
    Blizzard
    Heavy Downpour
    Bucketting Down
    Raining Cats and Dogs
    It’s a Bank Holiday Monday, just what did you expect?
