    From what I have read, a lot of the creative guys who made vanilla WoW are the minds behind this project.

    Will probably play it ,if it turns out to be F2P or B2P, not that there is mutch of a chance NCsoft would be stupid enough to try P2P with this game but who knows XD

    Except the fact your missing ins Carbine is the developer and will develop the game the way they see fit, NCSoft has no say if it goes F2P, B2P, or P2P since they are only the publisher.  

    Um, Carbine Studios is a subsidiary of NCSoft.  That's a bit more than 'only the publisher'.  They may very well be given considerable autonomy along the lines of Arena.net however.

    Can developers not think of anything better than a perma stealth? It's broken and frustrating in every MMO that has it.

    love these faction videos the exiles and this one are just great.. loving the humor so far:)

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    If the game itself has the same humor and personality that the videos do, I'll be playing WildStar for quite some time. Really looking forward to it, and can't wait to find out more about housing and crafting.

    Best way not to unviel a class is with a video intro and the announcer goes eh, we're not going to talk about them haha :) Registered for beta a long time ago, and I filled out some pre-beta survey from them the other week, looking good!

    Go look at the "meet the exiles" video again and pay attention to details, that might give you a clue whats their last race ;)

    Yep, 2 strong clues that I saw, good stuff :)

    The game is so beautiful. I'm getting really excited about it mainly b/c of the looks.

    I cannot wait to play. Exlies or Dominion. Ugh the choices. As long as I get my floating house, which ever faction I choose I'll be fine I guess. Here's hoping to a beta invite soon.image

    So the people of Nexus are essentially the Brown Coats?

    I think I'm going to choose my faction by the zones this time. Because I can see myself playing any of those races.

    Wow.  I'm putting Wildstar on my (short) list of anticipated MMOs.  I love the art style and the personality, and the combat looks somewhat fun.  Make it B2P and I'm already there.

    Wildstar continues to impress. At the very least, give a pat on the back to the team for well executed humor. Humor isn't easy, people sometimes forget things like animations and aesthetics when thinking about it.

    Looks like fun, but also likely to be one of the first classes to get really hammered by the nerf bat, because its "OP" in PvP.

    Unless they separate PvE and PvP, we will no doubt still past history in countless games repeat itself.

    Very much so. ^^  But real stealth classes (not the faux one in GW2) have almost always been the first to get hammered by the nerf bat, when the inevitable howling about "OP!!" and "Broken!!" and other such nonsense starts.  The game hasn't even started yet, and see the above, for an illustration of what I'm refering to... ^^

    By the way, its not perma stealth (like WoW rogues) from what I've seen. Its based on a limited energy bar.

    As far as "Dominion" is concerned not very original. Ironic that the Dominion's Order concept has been used since Angels of Fasaria Browser based game (2004), Fasaria World (2009) and Ancients of Fasaria (2013). Either a common concept or irony.

    Nah, this is clearly based on Star Trek Deep Space Nine.

    Dominion:

    • Cardassian: Cassian
    • Jem'Hadar: Draken
    • Vorta: Mechari
    • Breen: ?

    The Founders = Eldan

    I get more of a brown coats versus alliance kind of vibe.

    Ever hear of something called "Star Wars"?

    Good movie, I like the races and the dominion is excatly what I'd expect.  The stalker class is lame though.

    Ever hear of Startrek online? the Klingons who are the "bad guys" only have a 16% population base.. wouldnt call that dominant in any fashion. Though that is because of the lies from the devs over the years and lack of any real content for the KDF.

    for those in the dark about developer delusions check out
     
     

    Played: UO, LotR, WoW, SWG, DDO, AoC, EVE, Warhammer, TF2, EQ2, SWTOR, TSW, CSS, KF, L4D, AoW, WoT

    Tired of: Linear quest games, dailies, and dumbed down games

    You're comparing apples and oranges. Klingon was an incomplete faction with no content.  They were tacked on.

    If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.

    Did you know that Canada was called Dominion of Canada until WWII? In this case, it was used to mean "self ruled domain of the British Empire".

    A "Dominion" simply define domains that are self ruled. The word sound like "dominate" and it's often used to represent "evil Empires" in sci-fi/fantasy, but it started with domain and not dominate. That is why the term Hegemony exist (which is rarelly used, doesn't roll on the tongue like Dominion).
