Welcome Back to the WildStar Stress Test!
Thanks to your help in the previous Stress Test, we have identified and fixed a ton of issues. However, we need to run another test to make sure that everything is working properly, and also see if there are any leftover bugs that still need to be fixed.
As before, we want to push everything to its limit, and we need your help to do it! Just as a quick refresher, here's the important stuff:
The Important Stuff:
Once again, this is a 100% genuine Stress Test. We're expecting things to break pretty spectacularly, but we're still going to be keeping an eye on things and fixing problems as fast as we can. We still need you to hit everything we have as hard as possible, but we're hoping the game will be more playable, and you'll really get a chance to experience adventuring on Planet Nexus.
The key you applied for the last Stress Test is still valid for this Stress Test, so no changes need to be made to your account! Simply run the patcher and use your NC Account to log into the game during the hours that the Stress Test is live (mentioned below).
As thanks for helping us stress our servers, we will be providing everyone who participates with a rare in-game title reserved for those players who really go above and beyond to help us out! That's right, you'll be able to show off to all of the other citizens of Nexus and let them know that you were one of our Crash Test Dummies. Or Space Pirates. Or something. We're not sure what we're going to call you yet, but it's going to be sweet. The Operations Team has reserved this title for now and the future to identify our truly awesome helpers.
With the important stuff out of the way, let's get to the details.
Again, this event is under NDA. That means that you arenít permitted to talk about your experiences. We love to be able to trust people, but we're not quite ready to pull the curtain away just yet.
Next, go ahead and make sure your NCSOFT Account is still ready for play.
