    I nearly cried when I saw the game has ELO rating system (of joyce), now this is a banger to me. Will make sure all my AoC/LoL friends hear about this.

    Even if I hate the hypes, because it usually ends up getting you either upset and frustrated with the game designers and developers, I´m actually pretty excited with all this PvP content that´s gonna be dropped.

    GG already :)

    Has anyone heard anything about surnames yet? Would really help me figure out how to name a character.

    I hope they keep it clean - I'm so tired of all the cursing and nasty talk in WoW. Probably mostly from teens! lol

    I had a question and didn't know where to post it, and I don't think it deserves its own thread.

    The Wildstar devs love making marketing videos for Wildstar, obviously. Housing, Warplots, trailers and more. I was wondering, with the devs from WoW that are on the team, do any of them wish they could have made videos like this for WoW, or market it in the same way? Word is spreading fast about Wildstar, but Blizzard never made this kind of campaign about their MMO and I'm curious what the differences are, and what they might have wanted to do.

    Sorry for the late reaction.

    It's part of their concept. As they developed the game, they created characters with their own personality and a world with their own humorous twist in it.
    I think they mentioned something about this in one interview. I don't remember clearly so forgive me if it isn't entirely true, but originally they only wanted to create the reveal trailer, but they saw the positive reactions and the love towards the characters and they decided to continue do other humorous trailers as well.

    The atmosphere of the game is really unique, and it deserves a recognition :)
