There are official PvE servers. In the list of servers that appear when you load the game they indicate if they are “Official”. They indicate what region they are for and there is a “ping” limit of 140fps on them to be able to join one.
You need to know that there is no moderation at all on those servers so if you experience something that you considering griefing or cheating no one will help you resolve it. And no way to have a roll-back on saved game progress if Funcom’s updates destroy a lot of buildings.
Before picking an official server, I suggest you look over the forums here to see if any have string of “server down” posts from players or players complaining about the server. People report them by their number. There are certain servers that have nearly daily reports of being offline and crashing in the evening time and being offline for several hours.
