WildStar hands out gobs of gifts for its birthday

Don’t let WildStar’s upcoming free-to-play transition distract you from a more immediate reason to celebrate on Nexus: The sci-fi MMO is marking its one-year anniversary on June 3rd.

And what would a birthday be if there weren’t gifts to go around? Carbine announced that it will be giving several goodies out to players for the event. These gifts include a title, an “Anniverserowsdower” pet, a giant cupcake for homes, a dance party device, and a party starter pack.

The gifts will be distributed in-game to players who are subscribed during the month of June.

” If it’s still running poorly, you might want to look at upgrading.”

I wouldn’t.   Odds are your rig is fine.  There’s a 100 page post on the main forums about optimization for a reason.  If you run AMD, you should probably avoid this game.  

There’s a ton of stuff to like about Wildstar, optimization isn’t one of them.

Considering they made a fat, bouncing kitty for a mount and a big-ass cupcake for a housing item…this cash shop could get very interesting, very quickly.

Xomon Everyone had to change their name. It was just the fact of the matter when they went to the mega servers. But since they did go Firstname Lastname, you can pretty much always get the name you want.  (And honestly, you can’t really call yourself as “playing since the beginning” when you took off for 6 months. Game has only been out for 12)

As for the engine….they’ve made a lot of improvements over the past year. If it’s still running poorly, you might want to look at upgrading.

Tried the game after being away for 6 months and was greeted by a forced name change. The fact that they didn’t let people who played the game from the beginning keep their original name coupled with the fact that the game engine still runs like shit (even though the game looks like something produced from 5 years ago) made me sadly lose interest. I doubt I’ll be back.
If they have any hope of succeeding as F2P they have got to get this game running better on most people’s shitty machines. They also have to make the Dominion faction less full of snobby assfaced jerks.

aldristavan It looks so utterly disgusted with its own festive look, that’s what makes it great.  You can almost hear it thinking “Really?!?!  I look like THIS?!!?!?”  :-D

wolfyseyes I want them to mail real delicious cupcakes to me. Then they’d have a fan for life!

Styopa It’s that OR really awesome goofy goodies for their fans and an indicator of some of the wildly fun cosmetic stuff they’re capable of having in their cash shop this fall because the imaginative potential of this game is pretty insane. It’s all about perspective.

Is this the giant “we’re sorry we cajoled you into buying our soon-to-be-free game, so here’s a pile of the crap we’re going to sell as DLC to the F2Pers later as an apology” gift drop?

PurpleCopper SWTOR didn’t last a year either. Much less actually. Just saying.

PurpleCopper They actually lasted as a sub game longer than 1 year considering when f2p is coming out…so they did just about as well as swtor

A game is “doing it right” if they cater successfully to HARDKORE, the “Ken and Barbie”, and everyone in between. Them backing down the HARDKORE just a twinge helps the everyone in between a ton.

mttgamer My one-subscription rule is in serious danger now too. I wanted to wait until the transition so that I could just play in the new normal, but it’s a pink rowsdower covered in confetti. I mean, come on! That’s adorable.

I’m genuinely hoping they offer up cupcakes every year. XD

Welp…. I guess I’m going to carry 2 subscriptions for a bit(other is WoW)… I forgot how awesome the wildstar housing is. And they just put in non combat pets? Yeah… Darn it…

Rozyn Estranged Yeah, the one upside to the F2P conversion will be seeing exactly how bonkers they go with cosmetics.  It might be the first game where I really look forward to that sort of thing.

Estranged I love how ridiculous the game is – no middle ground. It’s probably the only game I can think of where I have no fear about ridiculous things in the cash shop ruining the spirit of the game.

I’m normally not a sucker for this kind of stuff, but both my spouse and I gave each other looks after reading the list last night. “That cupcake is awesome.” “I know… I think I want it…” “I might have to sub sooner than I expected to…” “Mhm.”
