    No offence....I love that they are doing this.....but I atleast expected some more ''difficult'' questions that required you to read up on some lore :D

    Took around 20 seconds to answer them all (yes i'm a slow reader).....GL to all those who participate though!!!!

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll explain why I created the quiz as I did:

    1. I was afraid that a quiz that was "too difficult" was going to prompt people to post a completed quiz on a forum somewhere and people would just copy and paste it and learn nothing.

    2. Our site's target audience has always been newer fans of the game (hence the "Nexus Welcome Center" tag). That's why we don't post our content here at WildStar Central. We don't want to take traffic FROM WSC, we want to bring people into the community and hopefully encourage them to join great communities such as WSC. i.e., we want to evangelize new fans. That's been the goal from the beginning.

    3. Already we've had comments of people who have learned new things since taking the quiz, thanking us for the hints. While I'm sure many dedicated fans would be able to answer them without research, the results of including the hints/having lower barrier to entry (which was also suggested by Carbine) has already begun to show benefits. Basic WildStar education is already getting people more excited!

    Long answer, sorry about that :p

    Love the idea for a future giveaway - like swag or something. I could use a lore refresher myself!

    Yeah, I answered all the questions in about 30 seconds, including the amount of time it took to click on the link and read how much money was raised by the fundraiser (only one i didnt know off the top of my head)

    To be honest, I too wished it would be more in depth with the lore, most of it was basic knowledge if you have been taking some interest in it. I do say however some of those questions took me a moment just because I had to remember what it was. After the questions though I checked the hint, I don't like how the link literally gave you the answer. Though I still thank every opportunity to get a beta key, because THIS GAME LOOKS AMAZING!

    We still thank you for every chance to get into this game =D

    How fun! I've been such a WSC fanatic that I haven't ventured outside my hobbit hole, much. Now I've been there and back again! And I'll go back again, again! To there!

    Just send in my answers! Yeah it wasn't hard for us Wildstar nerds on WSC, but I really like that you also try to get newer peeps into the game and the community, hope they will stay :)

    I like it seems to make sense to me and in the end barriers to entry need to be low to promote player growth.

    I'm really looking forward to playing this game. Ever since my taste from the stress test I've been hungry for more. If anyone looking for a friend to quest/play with during the evenings central time zone and you get a spare friend key feel free to hit me up if you have no other use for it ;) .

    I honestly don't see the point of creating some really difficult quiz when the end result would be you wouldn't know the answers and would have to look them up anyways. There is no skill in going to Google and finding out the answers. I guess it would thin out the amount of entries from the people who really want it and are willing to do the extra bit of research and those who aren't... but it's not like it would really be testing your knowledge.

    As folks above have said, the 'quiz' wasn't exactly the most-difficult 'exam' to take --and pass @ 100%-- but...

    It let a dunce like myself have a chance to submit a correct entry for even a *shot* at a BETA KEY! ;-)
    I've been (seriously) kinda nervous/hopeful about the results, especially when I can't really grasp the mathematical slimness of my chances --assuming I *DID* get all of the answers on the quiz correct, regardless of how easy it was made for me. hehe
