    Default WildStar OPEN BETA! [8th May 2014]

    It’s finally here! Open Beta will be starting on May 8th and we have all of the details how you can jump in on the action. From May 8th to May 18th, you will be able to visit our Open Beta page to request a key, and then hop into WildStar to experience content up to level 30. If you have already participated in any other WildStar beta event, including beta weekends and stress tests, you don’t need a new key. Just patch up, and you’re good to go!

    I'll be there! Can't wait as well. We need to get every on OnRPG person that is going to be in Wildstar to post here and join up. ^^ Keep up to date with the official forums as well. There are a lot of good discussions going on there. I'm currently in a Guild for Launch which will be on a PVP server, but I'm still not 100% content on joining the guild yet, so I may switch.
    Current Games:

    Overwatch (NA - PC)
    Battleborn (NA - PC)

    I'll be playing on the PvP server as well Viney. Probably DizzyPW or DizzyDay as ign. What faction are you planning on? Wonder if they will only have one PvP server like in CB.

    I've only exclusively played on Exile because I want to play Dominion on release. I already pre-ordered but I won't be playing the OBT. Gotta keep things fresh!

    I'm going Exile as of right now, but I'm still not set in stone in joining this guild I'm in. It's a multi gaming guild with barely any actual WS players. In total its huge, but I worry that there isn't enough dedicated WS people. I might change to Dominion or just a different Exile guild if I don't feel this current guild is a good fit. I'll decide that some time during the Open Beta.

    PS: I'd suggest running through with a class and just PVPing. Ignore the quests, ignore the crafting. Just PVP and get good at that, because that is one of the more fun factors in the game, and even in a PVE server there will be some PVP, and its a good idea to get good now before you have to focus on all of the other good stuff.

    Yeah, I'll log in for the boxes and hopefully get stuff to hype up my mount. But other than that, it'll just be logging in and out. I heard boxes carry over to the actual game.

    I'm still stuck on Nexus since that's where my main character is right now. I'll be moving to an RP-PvP server when the headstart launch begins.

    i'm pretty sure there are no boom boxes for the obt?
    that was strictly beta weekends, or so i thought.


    ok lol guess i was wrong, they confirmed it on titter.

    so, 3 months worth of boom boxes to open. holy shit.

    If you played any of the Betas, you will just need to update your client (if there is a patch to transition to O. If you are new, then you will probably need to wait until tomorrow until you can get an OB key and apply it before you can download the client. (If you were in any prior Betas then you don't need to apply an OB key).

    I don't have the client anymore, because it was on my desktop computer.

    Can anyone upload the client installer somewhere so we can download & install the game before tomorrow?

    I'm going to try it a little because, *sigh*, I already paid for it, but did they fix any of the framerate problems? I did a test weekend back in March and it was unbearable to play.

    As far as I know they haven't. My new Razer Blade 14 and other friends desktop PCs play the game fine. But feels like anything built 2+ years ago is struggling at random intervals (even if you lower the graphics).

    I'm going to give it a shot, my IGN will most likely be Contagious or Perplexas.

    there are people with brand new computers that can't run it well, and people on crappy old computers that run it really well.
    it's really wonky, but i'm sure it'll be fixed after ob because of the increased amount of user feedback.

    How do the boom boxes work again? If you didn't log in during the closed beta, and then you log in today, you'll get a ton of boom boxes? I remember logging on a couple of weekends ago and I only got 1 boom box. Then I logged in the next day and I didn't get anything.

    You accumulate 3 boom boxes per beta login. This includes beta weekends. If you didn't play any of the beta weekends, but log into Open Beta, you will accumulate your first 3 boxes. These boxes will be given out to players once the game launches on June 3rd I believe. So, no, you won't accumulate all the past boxes. You will only start accumulating 3 per day logged in.

    I mean i know its my own frustration here that will get the better of me, but so far - the game is an entire fail to the mmo industry....

    So far, i had a reallly old good standard account through ncsoft + wildstar (But ncsoft, being one of the most pathetic companies out there) - are seriously ****ing shit up now.

    I participated in the first closed beta, without issues (Other that poor fps + performance), which was fine and acceptable.

    But now?

    Cant login - cant reset password, password recovery doesnt work - sent ticket in hours ago, cant register new email - cant make new password on email, finally got new account made, but wont log into open beta servers - keeps giving me (Network error: connection closed "ip+port")

    This game HAD great potential, and so far just isnt delivering to the plate....

    The optimization has been a day 1 issue - and is still shitty as ever.

    Theres so many placeholders etc *And yes, i realize its OPEN BETA*....

    So far, this has just been one disaster to the next for me, and i had extremely high hopes for the game.

    But NCsoft/carbine are going to destroy it, and within a few months, the server will have a based fanboi community - slowly wither away into the backlogs of every other disappointing mmo out there that had potential, but was failed by its creator+publishers.


    Been trying for 2hours to try get my old account back, nojoy.

    Cant post on the new forums because i dont have an account...

    Cant post on the forums with new account, because its too new and wont let you post.


    LOL what an absolutely disgrace of a setup + company.

    ncsoft has NOTHING to do with wildstar, they're purely hosting the servers. carbine handles everything else, and they have been REALLY good at interacting with the community (check reddit for example)

    when i got my account banned for nothing, i sent a ticket to carbine (not ncsoft, they suck) and they fixed it within a few hours without asking for identity etc.

    also that login error is purely your router/firewall/pc's fault.
