I am a longtime lurker who finally bit the bullet and registered. With the recent, temporary closing of the WildStar Beta forums, I needed my forum-fix from somewhere! I am no stranger to MMOs, but I do not consider myself a "veteran" in the sense that I know all there is to know and have experienced everything there is to experience. I am quite newbesque in many ways still, but am willing to share my meager knowledge with anyone who asks. My son is the one who introduced me to WildStar via the teaser videos and DevSpeaks a long ways back. From then on I have been enamored with the game. Fortunately he acquired a Beta key a few months ago, with friend keys to boot, and graciously gave me one of the keys. It has been a most interesting experience, being able to be involved with a game such as WildStar at these early stages. While I have come into the fray a good amount of time later than many others, I still feel a bit of awe and pride that I have been able to make my own contributions, however small, to the game's development. I look forward to WildStar's release, with plans to pre-order on Wednesday. I feel it is going to be an amazing ride and would not miss it for the world.
