Future Server Lockdowns

How are we supposed to pick a low-pop server to make new characters on and have our f2p friends make characters on if the same thing could happen again in the next 3 days? Can we get a guarantee we won’t get screwed from playing with friends again? Played 25 hours in early access leveling characters and will have to swap servers and start fresh characters to play with friends come tomorrow, what’s to say I won’t have to do that again in another 3 days? Not sure I would touch the game again if that happened again.
