[Interview] WildStar: Revealing the Chua and the Mordesh

BillMurphyBillMurphy Managing EditorBerea, OHPosts: 2,377MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The two final races have been revealed for Carbine Studios upcoming WildStar. The Chua join the Dominion, while the Mordesh join the Exiles, and we've got all the details on both straight out of San Diego Comic Con.

This week at San Diego Comic Con WildStar revealed the final two races in the world of Nexus. We got on a call with the team at Carbine Studios to talk about the personalities behind these races and what they bring to the two major factions in the game. Wildstar has a unique sci-fi universe and both races fit into their weird and alternate roles. The Chua are the sociopathic gremlins of the Dominion faction that are responsible for the bulk of the empire’s weaponry. The Mordesh are space zombies who have been fighting off the Contagen for over eighty years. The Exiles have been smuggling them out as allies in the search for Nexus.

    Cinematics for this game  are cool. NCsoft isn't.  Neither are quest hubs.  This is actually paving out to crash just as hard as SWTOR did.

    if the game is half as funny or entertaining as the cinematics this should be good.

    One could be called finite, the other infinite.
    A finite game is played for the purpose of winning,
    an infinite game for the purpose of continuing play."

    Takes a lot of balls (or in your case ignorance), to make such a claim.

    SWTOR crashed because they spent hundreds of millions of dollars pushing and preaching all about the voice acting and story, without delivering crap the game actually needed. The game needed real endgame content, instead they started bloating out the mid-game with legacies and the like.

     

    It's all due to Bioware's complete and utter incompetence with MMOs. They had absolutely no clue what they were doing, and still very likely don't.

    it'll be interesting to see if the fanboys will be in as much denial as they were with SWTOR. Judging from a post here it's starting to look that way

    So, what are we fanboys supposed to be in denial about?  The game looks great to us, hence why we are fanboys.  Guess what?  If it sucks I'll do what I did with SW:ToR, leave.

     

    I will never understand bashing a game or those who like it when you aren't playing, or won't.  Us fanboys don't look stupid, you do.

     

    Now I get the elves comment.  I thought they looked like Forsaken Night Elves, but meh, i still like them.

    What looks great about it, the same quest hubs we've seen in 100 other games? Or the arena and raiding that we all did in WoW at some point in our lives.  zzzz.

    Haven't you heard, you posses long sharp ears and you're automatically a copy of a Warcraft elf. 

    Scratching past the fact that, not all of them have ears to begin with and their ears look more like fisherman bat's ears.

    As to the appearance of the mordesh. Blueish or sometimes a light purplish is often used to indicate or imply a cyanotic condition. (That's a lack of oxygen, ever heard of blue in the face when choking?) It's a common thing for artists to do with any form of undead.

    As the the green female mordesh, well, green is another color commonly used for undead types. It represents or implies a diseased or gangrenous condition.

    Physically I don't think they look like WoW Night elves, their build is different. And despite them having large ears with points, they look nothing like the hyper extended things the night elves have that look like they can either be used for fishing poles or used for takeoff when they flap as one runs.

    Here's something for you to think about, those mordent body parts that have been replaced by clear sections.  I wonder how much customization you will be allowed on that.

     

    Feel free to argue any point you like (or not), it's only opinions. :)

    Lost my mind, now trying to lose yours...

    Looks amazing. Love the humor.

    Chua vicious squirrels gone wrong.

    Mordesh are basically the forsaken but still look cool.

    Can't wait to play this.

    MMORPG Gamers/Developers need a reality check!

    The races look fine, nothing spectacular, but no glaring issues with them either (like FF11 and 14 did). If races sold games by themselves I would still be playing Allods over any other MMO. The gameplay is what makes this game look good. Skill shots>targeting, a good selection of classes and jobs. Not that its asthetics are bad as it has a good looking world and art style, funny dialogue that should transfer well. 

    Of coarse I reserve right to make judgements about any game till I play it.

    Interesting cinematics but that's about it.

    Look as like they are putting a lot of resources into these movies, not exactly cheap.

    Still seems silly to me, and I still can not forget that its a telegraph "run out of the red shape on the ground" , and "put blue shape below enemy feet"  2d game at heart.

    Come again on those Elf comments? Check out the Mordesh on the left in particular. Skull cap with brain shown. Face mask with rotting zombie teeth shown.

    Cool screenshot, is it from Darnassus?

     

    ...pls thgh, someone is actually claiming those guys look like NE? :D

  • discord235discord235 Woodland, CAPosts: 143Member Uncommon

    These races look cool, but I'm still going with Aurin and Mechari for my first 2 toons. The most I got out of this is that the more info about the game they release, the closer the game is to being released ;) 

    I really hope it still comes out this year...

    Thats my impression aswell, certainly didn't think they where an elf.

    Are you sure you aren't required to choose just one faction, not both?


  • Eir_SEir_S Argyle, NYPosts: 4,623Member
    Asura gnome chipmunks!  Maybe I'd have preferred the zombie guys since I want to roll Dominion, but they're still kinda cool.

    Because of body build, of course. Tall, very slim, thin legs and body and suddenly big shoulders and hands. Very NEish imo.
