WildStar’s free to play launch is just days away now and Carbine Studios has decided to hold a midnight launch party as the free to play MMORPG goes live at midnight September 29th Eastern US time.

Over on the WildStar Twitch Page, the stream is fired up and counting down already. Between now and then, Carbine Studios will be popping in and out of the stream to host events and surprises. On the 28th, Carbine Studios will take to the Live Stream at 9 PM Eastern and bring in guests, give away prizes, and provide players with a brand new trailer at midnight as the servers go live.

While cool, here’s the deal as a player. If you’re going to do this, your servers BETTER be ready for midnight. The LAST thing WildStar needs to do now is call attention to a collapse of servers at midnight.

We’ll see how it goes, though.

    Somehow I doubt WildStar is going to fail as F2P..if fricken SWTOR with its hotbars and other crap behind paywalls or obscene credit grind can get away with it..I’m sure this game will survive with whatever dastardly paywall stuff it pulls.

    The real question is; is the game actually GOOD and compelling enough to even give a flying seal about? That’s what’s going to make or break, I reckon.

    I don’t understand your hatred to this game. Leveling is boring in every mmo. Basically you are judging a game without ever playing it. I see so many posts starting like “I’ve quit the game after reaching 20 lvl because leveling was boring”, really ? -_-. If you quit an mmo just because leveling is “slow” that just means that mmos ain’t for you.

      If there’s nothing fun in between staring at the xp bar and playing the game. That is mostly the result. If you like staring at paint dry on the wall sure that doesn’t mean others do too. MMOs are long but not suppose to be boring by any means that means its not a game at all worth playing.

    Leveling is very much streamlined to be faster and less annoying . Also they changed the level requirements for low level dungeons so you have interesting new stuff to do while leveling your char

    Are there any changes made in leveling speed? After release of Wildstar i got bored after lvl 20 because of the slow leveling.

      i think so

      From what I played in the beta the leveling speed is still the same. I liked it, the feeling of progression is good, yet leveling feels hard and rewarding.

        Well we will see just how much of that is behind a pay wall that can’t be seen.

          If i see any content behind a pay wall it’s bye bye wildstar immediately. 🙂
