That server is doomed, I do not recommend it. Sure you get to be a part of a fresh start, but with only a fraction of the population on other servers. Even if it looks busy now, it will most certainly die down within a year. Happens in almost every game that adds a new server a few weeks in.

There will be a rather large influx of players in 6 months time. As long as SE attempt to resolve some of the issues, and gets the PS3 version out on time. I almost started on Karnak yesterday after being unable to create my second and third characters on Selbina, after camping the world selection screen all day and night Selbina finally allowed new character creation last night. I would not fear starting on Karnak, its only 10 days older that the other servers.
