    Off the back of the earlier Arkship US 2013 event, it now appears that the invites are being confirmed for the EU edition of this fan event. Arkship EU 2013 will be running from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st April in Brighton, UK (home of the NCSOFT Offices in Europe).

    For those unfamiliar with these events, Carbine Studios hand pick representatives of both fansites and fans themselves and fly/bring them in for a weekend of playing WildStar and engaging them on various aspects of the game in NDA-equipped dev panels. You can read a little about Arkship US 2013 in our article linked below.

    Have fun and ask questions! I hope they let you try out things like raid content and crafting.

    <- Insanely jealous of everyone who's going! :p

    I'd take meeting the devs over getting into the beta, easily :p. I mean, the game's going to be released at some point, so I'll get to play it eventually; but meeting the devs is an opportunity some may never get! Make the most of it, you guys! ;)

    Didn't we see somewhere that beta was starting on the 22th of April? And normally from don't a lot of launch things get announced at the EU things? Just a thought.

    Since flying to Cologne costs over 600€ now, this one is a bit of a anomaly.

    Best of luck and I hope that the people they invite are actually smart with their criticism.

    So much awesome! Really glad the EU folks get to enjoy their Arkship now. I highly recommend taking the time to chat it up with the devs, that's one of the parts that I really wish I had done more of!

    Congrats to all who are going! Now where is the list to sign up for any cancellations ? :p

    On a serious note, make the most of experience people, the game you will all get to play sooner or later - the chance to get inside the mind (cue spooky music) of game designers, and influence and critique a AAA MMO ? That doesn't happen every day :)

    I have my own. Coincidentally, it's also how I'm getting there.

    That is how Ender is getting there!

    Also I disagree. Women become very easy to predict when you account for the fact that they are ALWAYS right. ^^

    Anyway, very excited, and looking forward to putting as many questions to them we are allowed to answer!
