All hail to the Chief. Alas, announced today, @Jeremy Gaffney will be stepping down as President at Carbine Studios due to a need to focus on his family, who have recently suffered a series of tragedies that he outlines in his farewell message to the community. While he will remain in a consulting capacity, his participation in the company and the wider WildStar community will be less active/noticeable to the public.
For those of you who play WildStar and were not aware, while once you reach the hallowed Level 50 you have 41 ability points to allocate per build, but you could (very rarely) find or buy items that expand this to 48 total. The same for your AMP points (45 without unlocks, 55 with unlocks). Carbine have been saying for a while that they've wanted to ease the path into these additional power levels, and today they've outlined their plan!
Everyone's favourite Product Director, Mike "DapperDonatelli" Donatelli, has dragged himself up onto the official forums today to make a statement - word had been circulating from interviews at Gamescom 2014 that Carbine was abandoning it's 28 day drop schedule and today, we have had confirmation that for this drop at least things are going to take a little longer. We'll keep an eye out for you, on the timeframe changes.
As announced in the General Discussion forum, WildStar and Tony "ThaCheez" Rey are up for nomination in several categories of the GuildLaunch hosted "Dragon Slayer Awards". WildStar is nominated for
Best Promotional Effort by a Game, Best Community Management Team, and Most Engaged Design or Dev Team. Tony Rey is nominated for Community Manager of the Year.
