WildStar outlines its PvP seasons as the first season ends

The next major patch for WildStar is bringing the end of a season of PvP. Did you know you were taking part in the first PvP season? Quite possibly not. But with the one-year anniversary of the game’s launch looming just over the horizon, the first season is ending; personal and team ratings will be wiped, with the highest-rated teams earning special titles to show off for bragging rights.

This announcement comes along with a fairly detailed breakdown of the game plan for future seasons, as well, starting with “floors” for rating brackets – below a rating of 400 you can’t lose any rating, and every subsequent increment of 400 introduces a floor that you cannot fall below. So once you hit 1200, no matter how many times you lose, you can’t drop below 1200. There’s also an in-depth system of planned rewards; you can check out the full breakdown for more details as the next patch ushers in a transitional time before season 2 starts up properly.

There are PvP seasons? There is PvP?
I watched DocGotGame sit in queue for an hour and never get a single pop.

Maybe it wants to eat popcorn alone.
Or people ignore the munching noises.
Either way, nobody cares about whatever Madda is. :D

How many people are really still playing WS?  Seems like this is a candidate for “F2P” since it sunk faster than SWOTR … how many people are really playing SWTOR for that matter?  Oh and neither “killed WoW” as they were hyped to do so.

Why do most “Sci-fi” themed games die?

Ah ok, thanks for the reply. Doesn’t sound like enough people to be sustainable to be honest and if no one plays ranked then I don’t see the point. Hopefully the patch revives the arena scene.

In this case, WS would totally benefit from B2P or F2P. The game now is what it should have released as. It needs a surge of population which free access will bring.

Uh, well, it’s like the same pool of like 100 active pvpers so prime time is great, bgs pop fast from like 5pm est to after midnight. I don’t do ranked arena, I don’t think anyone does right now. This pvp season 1.5 should revive arena, 3v3 will be the new queue for rewards.

What’s the PvP population like though? Is there significant waiting time for battleground and more importantly ranked arenas?

While it would have been nice if the game had launched with all these features, I am pretty happy with the direction that WS is taking. Once the PvP gets fixed I can definitely see myself using it as my go to game for instanced PvP.

I don’t give a shit about Wildstar one way or the other but I’d rather see an MMO flat out die than be taken over by the Freemium horde.
