Magicman knows what I like. "There's WildStar news if you want it. Winter kind of stuff, with quality of life, inventory management, etc." he tells me in Skype.
Indeed, there is! Carbine Studios has gone into detail with some of the less-glamorous, but still useful, changes coming to WildStar when it goes free-to-play on the 29th. There's going to be a "Sell Junk" button that will help you clear out your bags quicker, a rapid-transport system that charges a fee and has a cooldown, an action-combat-style mouselook mode, guided character creation, new content finder, and more.
All in all, it's a nice package of convenience. The cooldown on transport is actually a nice idea, one that I could see Guild Wars 2 implementing someday, to prevent excessive farming by people hopping from event to event. Though part of me thinks this all comes with a price, like by using the rapid transport system, we're funding construction of a giant chua death machine...
