Estimated Active Census
Note: Statistics above are based on a Warcraft Census accurate as of 10/05/09 and should be considered strictly informational.
More statistics available at Warcraft Census for Jaedenar.
Jaedenar has been the victim of many paid character transfers and rerolls to realms such as Underbog and Korgath, so its numbers are dwindling even more than most normal low population server. Jaedenar is unusually slow in PvE, which has resulted in a bored slew of 70's that sit in major cities, PvP, and chat in trade channel. One of the most notable aspects of Jaedenar is it's close sense of community, both in game and on it's forums. Even players who have transferred away from Jaedenar consider the Jaedenar forum to be their WoW forum home.
A view some on the server share is: "Our only hope for our not-so-beloved Jaedenar is to merge with another low-pop server or for other servers to open up free transfers to ours." Others believe that Jaedenar is doomed, while another viewpoint is that Jaedenar is an amazing server and love every day they play on it. To each his own, it seems.
For some reason, this page has always been edited to be very care-bearish and the history of trolling on the Jaedenar server isn't mentioned. I do not see why people seem to want to leave out some of the most exciting gossip, trash talk, and trolling out of the story of our beloved server. From Ohwhen, to the Women of Jaedenar, to Yme, from Vanilla WoW to BC there have been many entertaining threads, much more entertaining that who killed what boss. The human interaction is what makes this game what it is. Though softer people seem to want to leave that out, much to my chagrin. So please, please post links to the troll threads, to the troll pics, and troll away.
With the installment of WotLK Jaedenar hasn't seen much improvement. There aren't any great guilds, nowhere near the top of other servers. A lot of the great trollers have seem to have moved on. The forums are boring and rarely posted on. Although a lot of the baddies have stayed on the server. The community is still somewhat tight knit, but the new people don't seem to have any respect for those who came before them. It is a sad sad direction for this formerly decent server to be moving.
CATACLYSM: With the update of Cataclysm it seems the once small town Jaedenar US is no longer the same server. Many have come and gone and to see a familiar Jaedenar face is rare. Once epic Jaedenar trolls that gave us the tickle we were ashamed of but loved, are all dead and gone. Jaedenars Favorite Troll Forever.
Rüin had continued to lead in progression heading into Naxxramas taking Realm First! Magic Seeker, Realm First! Conqueror of Naxxramas, and Realm First! Obsidian Slayer. Equilibrium, which started as a regular PUG lead by Hyperion, quickly rose in progression taking the number three spot in progression behind Occult. Legacy died going into WotLK and many members formed AbsoIution. When the #2 guild from Lightning's Blade, Atrocity, came to Jaedenar during Ulduar to found Strife they were much misaligned on the server. There was a big race to kill Yogg-Saron and eventually Strife won out for top of progression. Strife took Realm First! Celestial Defender and after completing Realm First! Grand Crusader (they are still the only guild to kill Heroic Anub'arak) they came back to complete Realm First! Death's Demise. After completing 4/5 in ToGC, GM of Equilibrium, Hyperion suffered a personal in-game issue that tore apart the guild forcing most members to go to Strife.  Also during ToGC a #2 guild from Haomarush transfered, OP, to become Apotheosis. Unlike Strife however, they came from a lower state of progression and hoped to pick up many of the leftover Equilibrium players and take their spot in progression. Both Ruin and Apotheosis suffered declining membership and merged to create a shortlived guild named Warpath. At the end of WotLK progression the only notable Horde PVE progression guilds are Strife and Order of Orgrimmar.
