    Default WildStar - Headstart Launch This Weekend

    So who's planning to play WildStart this weekend for Headstart? I'm planning to play on the RP-PvE server, Evindra. I WANTED to play on an RP-PvP server, but that sadly didn't pan out so well. Anyway, my IGN and details are in my signature.

    Carbine Studios didn't think the demand for the RP-PvP was big enough, despite all the support they received for it on the forums.

    This lines up with my week holiday so well! Hadn't heard much about WildStar really, although checking it out, it seems pretty good. Seems like they are catering to the hardcore crowd as well.

    Any idea if it is available for preload before Saturday? I'd love to be able to play from 7am GMT when it launches.

    Perfect! Thanks Mikedot.

    I have watched a couple of videos and plan to play as a healer. Undecided about server and exact class/race though.

    I am about to pre-order but not sure which edition to get. Do you think the deluxe is worth the extra?

    Unless you're into roleplaying like me or simply feel like supporting Carbine/NCSoft with a little extra cash: Nah, the Deluxe edition isn't really worth it. Of course, I bought the deluxe edition at a 20% discount thanks to GreenManGaming.

    Yes, I've heard, but I don't think it's going to have a very successful RP community with RP-PvPers being the minority there, and with groups like Reddit, 4chan and Goon all rolling there, the RP-PvPers are going to be trolled to hell and back. As much as I'm not fond of the situation, I'd rather stick with the RP-PvE server and perma-flag myself.

    Sorry to hear all the people not impressed or nt going to play it. I am sorry that you are going to miss out on the next big thing. Wildstar may not be for everyone but it well worth the shot and a go. Specially if you like any part of an MMO. Literally pick a part an WS has it. So if you not going to play wildstar for a non concrete reason i would at least urge anyone to try it for at least an hour if you dont like it well shiet then u got ur free 7 day trial out of it at least (yes anyone that has the game has trial keys to give away if im not mistaken.)

    I bought the deluxe edition so I'll end up having some free trials to give out to people who want to give the game a shot. I'll let you know what's up.

    Sorry, but I heard about the same thing with ESO. I'm letting its remaining 20day+ game time to rot, atm.

    BTW, what's at lv 15 in Wildstar ? People say that's when the game 'picks up'. Obviously I didn't get that high lvl during Beta...

    Level 20 is where is really became amazing for me. That's when you get the first dungeon. And god was it fun. I played one more after that and I enjoyed it equally as much.

    Anyways, I'll be playing on Widow, the unofficial PvP-RP server! I'll let you guys know an in game name once I make a character (pre-ordered to late to reserve a name). :P

    Mounts dungeons housing pvp. The meat of the game starts at 15. An only gets better. Like what is the reason you guys dont like the game?..... anything in specific? And yes I will gladly give you guys 7 day keys when i recive them. I have no issue with that

    I honestly do not think that is going to happen with this game for a few reasons:

    1. They attracting one specific type of group, the ex-WoW people.

    2. The combat system that have forces you to look at the ground. Literally that's all you will ever be doing. They try to say it's a "action" oriented system but it's not really anything like the current action mmos (C9, Tera, Vindic), it's more like a mix of GW2 with skill shots from League if anything.

    3. Pre-15 sucks ASS. Honestly I played a lot of mmos and games but this is the worst introduction to any game I have played since maybe ASDA? It gets better around 20ish but it's still annoying as hell.

    3. Quests are boring as shit. It's like if people from twitter just told you to go kill things. The best way to hit 60 is to just skip everything but the story quests and just grind it out.

    4. Classes are really boring and have little to no customization. Everyone within the next 3-4 months will take a cookie cutter build and follow it, especially since they have that dumbass "Limited Action Set" that's supposed to encourage some sort GuildWars type of customization but honestly it's just a big step back. Also all classes only have one set of weapons (warrior sword, everyone else guns basically) which doesn't really give any variety to combat imo.

    5. Char customization is really limited with only very few choices even being aesthetically pleasing.

    The only people that will enjoy this game are those that are extremely invested into Carbine's marketing team and those that just want a different looking WoW. The game is just a themepark that gets really grindy at higher levels and all you'll ever do in combat is just look at the ground and avoid red geometric shapes. That's pretty much it. I spent a while playing this (CB (got to 45), O and really it's not that fun and just was not appealing to me.

    This game, along with ESO is going to go f2p within a year or two. ESO might be going f2p faster considering it's a huge pile of squat.

    damnit Greed, you post that AFTER I pre-order the game? such cruelty~

    well....since I bought it, might as well try it for the first month free....and if I don't like it before the time expires....there goes $60 down the drain~

    Tbh, I could take every mention of Wildstar and replace it with ESO or SWTOR and it would be pretty much the same as what was said about those two games before release.

    That being said, if you enjoy the game then good for you. I personally hated it.

    I did my first Adventure on my warrior (Dominion) at level 15 last night. It was probably one of the most difficult boss fights I've ever done. It took my team and I 5 wipes to realize what we had to do. It was incredibly difficult, the adrenaline rush was intense (I felt bad for our healer), but when we killed the final boss, I've never felt so relieved. Very fun!

    You died that many times in the 1st adventure? :X That sucks. You're in for a world of hurt once you hit 20 and start doing the dungeons. THOSE are hard. The adventures are nothing compared to them. Even the 1st one is a pain.
