WildStar tells the tale of the Ravaging of Arboria

    
33

Ever wonder why WildStar’s floppy-eared Aurin are galaxy-hopping instead of staying at home and gnawing on carrots? It’s because of an event called the Ravaging of Arboria, and you can learn more about it by reading a new story update (which includes pictures for those who have a hard time with words).

Heck, you might even feel bad for the nature-loving race after finding out that their home was targeted by the Dominion to be churned up into fuel and other resources. However, both sides appeared to be wounded in the event, which is significant to setting the stage of what happens on Nexus in the game.

You completely missed the part where i pointed out that the missing and first promised “solo progression” tier was part of the game problems at end game. The notion of that progression tier made many people whos main focus was elsewhere not think too much about that.
Near the end of the beta i personally asked and got response where the solo progression tier was, it was an answer that it was coming still but as you can see it was very much delayed now with veteran mode shiphands  among other things they are making good on that.

So i very much had that covered. The game wasn’t as hardcore what some believe it to be, it simply was so that those expects of the game were actually the “most” developed on launch.

I’m sorry? in beta most of us never even got to see the high end dungeons, let alone get silver rank. Justr becauser you and your friends were some of the rare few who saw anything past level 20 before release doesnt mean you knew what everyone felt about the game

ClassicCrime Midgetsnowman ColdinT Thats how they found the planet, yes. But a good deal of why it was stripmined is the chua are little bastards with a need for massive quantities of resources. Arbioria had tons of resources, and in the chua’s eyes, annoying nature loving freaks who pissed them off and that nobody would miss.

I actually heard a fan theory when I played that made sense to me about that. The aurin love nature and frolic in it because they are, as can be seen from their warriors, a carnivorous (or omnivorous) hunter race. Theyre top of the food chain. Before their uplift, Chua were likely a prey species, albeit a very clever prey species. of course they’d hate the shit out of nature and anyone who likes nature. What did nature ever do for them?

Personally Wildstar is one of the few games where I feel the games developer/publisher got what they deserved in the very fast nose dive of the game.    The arrogance of the developers was pretty astounding.   It overshadowed the good aspects of the game but also highlighted the glaring problems that arrogance caused and the vast majority of subscribers left soon after reaching higher/max level and finding out that unless you were willing to treat Wildstar as a second job AND you had the twitch reflexes of a gamer on drugs this wasn’t the game for you.

They deserved what they got and it’s unfortunate because outside of the problems the game had tons of potential.

Was a combination of things that lead to this,  several of us were part of the game since over a year in beta before it actually launched. So eventually you have enough of it, i know some that still actively play and raid and clear all content rather quickly.

I think if the difficulty was lower we would’ve seen a greater spread and raids would’ve felt less “fun” plus the exodus of guilds would’ve been faster as seen in SWTOR. I would argue more so due to the odd to bad itemization the game launched with incentives to do dungeons were a greater issue as they fult unrewarding so they didn’t givepeople challenging but easy accessible team content. The other half of the problem was when we were giving feedback we got told there would be 3 progression paths, PvE teamplay (raids), PvP and a solo tier, that solo tier never really came what made the end game at the start rather monotonous. 

The guild site is around but that’s about it there was a rather big fall out among several key players, even to the point that some tried to take and convince a core of good players to join one or two others for the sake of giving more weight to their application.  Some left and most of them didn’t get very much further as they ended up joining a guild that had 3 to 4 groups running and getting in the core group is a matter of guild politics and good plays.

So those that remained moved with or without help to other suitable and decent guilds i joined one of them briefly and they cleared 20 mans also. 

The problem with 40 mans were simple, besides the logistics, you had no in combat rezzing. The timers were tight unless you outgeared it what you didn’t if you just set foot in that instance, some fights punished you badly if one person screwed up and then you have to factor in client crashes still happened. 

So in the end i think bugs is what really made some folks get tired of it all and give the game up.  I can write long posts of what went wrong but most of this has already been resolved. The rest is still being worked on if i have to believe who still have contacts with carbine developers. 

I’m fairly certain this game will recover around the summer, but i won’t go back to raiding mostly since it doesn’t appeal me all that much anymore.

ClassicCrime skoryy AvatarOP exact, the games “gives it to you bit by bit” but i understand Skoryy when he says an “introduction”, maybe for each races, could have been nice.

ManastuUtakata Madda Apparently it’s a lore thing. It’s possible, it’s just not in fashion right now, so they don’t have any graphics or models for it, et cetera
