What US East server you guys recommend for a noob?

According to the last inofficial survey you should find people on Lapas, Kovah or Xewell.

As far as i know there is a more or less active build project on lapas so i would bet on this world if you really like to find someone by acident :smiley:

you can always see if there are players online if you turn on the debug options “.” (point key). In the upper left corner are all active players on the server.
