    Default Wildstar Stress test Feb 14

    Welcome Back to the WildStar Stress Test!
    Greetings!

    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.

    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.

    Accessing your NCSOFT Account

    Log in to the NCSOFT account management website and enter your details.
    If you are able to log in successfully, you're all good to go!

    Patching your WildStar Client:

    Launch WildStar.exe to open up the patcher.
    Update the game to the latest patch (there was a big patch, so you might have a lot to download).
    Once the download is complete, click the "Play Now!" button
    If you reach the login screen, you have successfully patched! You won't be able to log in until the scheduled event times listed below, so just hang in there until then!

    The Dates/Times for the Event (subject to change):


    Start: Friday, February 14th, 7:00 am PST (3:00 pm UTC)
    End: Sunday, February 16th, 11:59 pm PST (7:59 am UTC)
    (Sooooo.... i'm a bad gurl and thought i might share this with ya folks )
    See ya (maybe :3) in game. ^^

    I've watched a couple of Twitch streams.
    What makes this game not World of Warcraft?

    There are 5 million ex-WoW players really getting tired of this crap. lol

    What makes it World of Warcraft? Serious question here. Only similarity I see is the 2 factions thing and yet you aren't the only person saying they are the same game. Am i missing something?

    Combat is different.
    Classes are different.
    Races are different.
    Lore is different.
    Skill system is different.
    Crafting system is different.

    Been hoping for a key for like... forever, probably the moment they added the sign-ups to the website. No luck so far.

    I'll keep on hoping.

    I'm in exactly the same boat. I signed up for beta pretty much as soon as signups were opened. Irony? My fiance got in but I didn't, ha. I'll watch and see if it's any good. I'm hoping it will be.

    Everyone comparing every game to WoW is just making WoW a bigger game.

    WoW kinda set the standard which this evolution of MMOs are compared. It can't be helped.
    If you don't wan't your game to be compared to WoW, do something truely unique.

    If you think this weekend is going to give you a good taste of the game, prepare for disappointment. They spend multiple paragraphs in that email explaining how the servers are going to explode due to the sheer volume of invites sent out. And after the test is over, you won't have access any longer.

    If you want a detailed look at the experience though, here's my thoughts:

    Why not compare WoW to EverQuest (the first one, which came out before WoW) or Ultima or hell, Meridian 59 (The first 3D MMORPG.)

    Because it's the most popular.
    It's the same reason why people comparing MOBA's use league and not WC3 dota. Not about which came first. WoW was campared to Everquest when it first came out...back in 2004.

    Why not compare "MOBAs" to all MOBA types? :P Like TF2? (Literal Meaning.)

    People are too silly nowadays.

    Its just easier/more lazy. Not silly. Try explain DOTA to a friend who has never played it, then say 'its like league'(using this as a example, don't hate me fanboys) I guarantee they will understand it more. Try it.

    It's Pay 2 Play but players can buy and sell an item that gives you a month's subscription.

    Sort of like EVE, yeah? That's one of the best business models IMO.
