    So, it would appear that we get WildStar Wednesday a little earlier today - primarily because the Community Team is over in "sunny" Brighton, UK giving a little press presentation! We learn that they're giving away some <REDACTED> secrets and perhaps more importantly, will be flying in a bunch of fans to do some on-the-spot testing! Le us know your thoughts!

    In which case... WildStar Central (i.e. moi) will be there to capture as much publicly releasable info for the community as we can possibly muster (without breaking any NDA's, of course!)

    I even went and bought a new camcorder just for the occasion!

    The podcast team will be doing a show from the event, also w/o breaking NDA.

    Lucky sod Zap! Can't wait to hear any juicy details you can gather!

    I hope we get good representatives there for key components and features. Especially balance issues, pvp vs pve balancing etc... People are going to be especially critical of housing I'm sure. And for my favourite part of mmo's, hope the gathering/crafting and auction house/shop systems are grilled! to make sure they are up to scratch!

    I know a few more people who will be going there representing the glorious empire at Arkship :p

    Have fun all, and I hope you all give some great feedback to improve the game we all want to see succeed. :D

    edit: I know a lot of people are PVE centric but don't ignore PVP please

    I was wondering if those guys that do go there can make a list of the things that the WSC community wants to see/inspect/analyze/stress, show that list to the Carbine team, test the things on behalf of everyone who couldn't go, ask Carbine what items on that list they can give us answers to (even if it's in a PM that would put the person who couldn't attend but got the info in the PM under NDA)

    I was also blessed enough to get an invite. I will be going. I can't wait to meet Carbine and the WSC prominent members.

    Woot!

    I am SO excited about ArkShip… Can't wait to see old friends and meet some brand new ones! Oh yes, and maybe get to play the game a bit too… ;)

    And of course a big props to Carbine for making a huge effort to engage the community and get feedback direct from players to truly help shape WildStar!

    I considered this, but the issue is we don't know in advance what might be shown/available to test. Additionally, I don't think (unless Carbine correct me) that we can "sub-let" the NDA by breaking the NDA to anyone who has a question.

    I will, however, be attempting to find some time to interview a developer or two (perhaps even on camera!) and will raise questions compiled from a new thread I will be starting a little later today.

    Perhaps someone could find out where the servers will be based? One of my current games moved servers, and now those half a world away find the game unplayable, which is a shame. Hopefully, Wildstar won't make this mistake.

    Have fun for those who got invites, I am only a little jealous.

    A new thread is a good idea. Possibly Carbine can answer many of the questions before we even get there and let us focus on the panels, providing the best feedback possible. After all we are there to help the game succeed not data mine, though a little data gathering doesn't hurt as long as it not against the NDA.

    See you all in Cali, bags are packed and ready to go :D
