I guess it depends on what seems like a challenge and what is an obvious unreachable goal. Does WildStar's "1%" mean that they only expect 1% of all their players to even step foot inside the Datascape (the 40-man raid), or they expect that only 1% will kill the last boss? I found an old article on MMO-Champion that was published 4 months after Siege of Orgrimmar was released (the last raid of the current expansion), that stated only 0.23% of all players had killed Garrosh Hellscream on heroic difficulty. To me, the definition of the "1-percenters" are the guilds like vodka, Paragon and Method, that spend 7 days a week raiding, for 8-12 hours per session. This might be a slight exaggeration of course, but guilds like that devote a lot of time to be where they're at. Which still brings me back to my question: What is WildStar's definition of being a 1-percenter? Personally, if I had to rate myself on how "hardcore" I was, I'd say I was probably in the top 20% or so. I haven't fully decided if I want to pursue 40-mans or not yet. It will be hard for me to pursue something that I don't necessarily care for, just to ensure myself that I'm at least trying to make it there. I will probably wait for some more information about their raid setups and go from there.
