No, i already play more than enough MMO's (FFXIV;ARR, SW;TOR, Eve Online) if i had any inclination to play Wildstar i'd probably just reactivate my old WoW account
It does look like a reasonably good game though, and i suspect it will probably do well, its just not for me.

You see, many MMO players like to have one single MMO that they can commit to. Having a bunch of characters in a bunch of different MMO's is pretty much like a jack of all trades, master of none.
MMO's are about longevity in a persistent world where you create a character and build on it, creating your own impact in that world.
Playing a bunch of MMO's in my opinion is just pointless, a time filler with no real goal behind it.
I can get that you think that the palette is similar and the art style but I simply cannot agree the game plays like WoW though. I suppose I must be missing something but I find the game quite unique or may be I'm just blinded by my fondness for the game.
I enjoy doing the funny quests and reading the books and lore and listening to the quests and the NPC's speech and I love the western art style and the little humour that with a blink of an eye you can miss sometimes. It is both subtle and in the face at the same time. The obvious caricatures of characters in both fantasy and alien stories and books that are reflected in so many aspects of the game. You come across an NPC and then you realise wow he actually reminds me of a character from a book I read. I simply adore the fact that the world has been lovingly (and I mean this seriously) crafted and that the tiny details that have been put in it is from the imagination of someone who has read Charles Stross or Jack L. Chalker or Terry Pratchett. I see it and it makes me smile.
Yes may be I am blinded by the fact that I do enjoy doing the quests and am looking forward although with much trepidation to the group content I am going to suck at since I do not do twitch well. I will play an esper or medic as someone suggested though. I do want this game to do well because I sincerely think it is quite good.
The day I lose my ability to still enjoy a new game will be a sad day for me. I still get excited so sue me to play a new game. Well may be not like when I was playing Everquest in 1999 but I can still scrounge up a smidgen of excitement for this game.
I preordered the game.
Love that there is so much to do. Right out the gate there is so much content. The game opens up at lvl20+ but thats atleast better than ESo which opened up at lvl 13 when you could do your first dungeon, but then that was it you practically had already experienced all of the game. WS if you don't wanna quest que up for pvp, if you get tired of that Q up for a dungeon. If that gets stale go farm your garden at your house. I like the hectic combat and the way the action set up is. Love the lore and the Exiles reminds me of the browncoats from firefly.
I think the game will have an issue with PVE and PVP being to seggregated at end game. It was a Problem in SWTOR. At end game you either grinded pvp for commendations to get ya pvp set or your grinded dungeons to build ya pve gear, but if you got bored with that your gear wasn't good enough to do the other. That is a worry for me. The devs talk so much about endgame 40 man raids, but I hope they don't neglect the 5man dundeons end game. I loove doing dungeons, but i'm not a fan of 40man raids that takes forever to do and don't feel rewarding for all the trouble.
I really hope you can participate in the raids by getting top notch PvP gear.
Everything they have shown seem to point in that you can compensate min maxing in gear by playing better (skill).

Didn't like the combat so nope, not gonna buy it.
Would not play it if it were FTP either, just do not like this new type combat.
No I will not be playing for the following reasons:
I find the combat terrible, makes me feel like I'm playing smite and its just not enjoyable to me in a PVE setting.
Not a fan of the limited skill set system, very easy to manage 9 skills and as a result dps rotations (for warrior atleast) lack a lot of complexity.
The lore and atmosphere are way too much of a joke to take the game seriously and become immersed.
Not a fan of the 40 man raid size, been there done that.
Not a fan of the really god awful optimization, though I could tolerate it if not for the above.
Played it and had a lot of fun, no I don't like the art style of cartoons at all. But man this game is fun to play and has some complexity at end game.
It has a huge fun factor to it and that's why I play not after the ego boosting goober leet crowed at all
I haven't decided yet even though I've been monitoring Wildstar's progress for awhile & am enthusiastic for it.
Too many games in the past have promised & not delivered for me to blindly trust throwing money at it until it's verified.
I like Wildstar's approach to many aspects, but nowadays I'm more wait-and-see then contribute to it.
Kudos to the players that still toss money at games during alphas, betas, crowd-funding, etcetera. And kudos to the developers that attempt to create a new approach to games from time to time for us players.
Here's to Wildstar, I hope it succeeds! I already enjoy their cinematic cutscenes.
I won't purchase Wildstar.
My reason is that I played the beta, and I did not like the game. It is not a bad game, however, I became bored rather quickly. Once that happened, it felt like I was forcing myself to play to an extent.
I played past the beginning zone for both Exile and Dominion and then stopped. The beginning zones just felt lacking to me. I did not get any excitement from them. While I know beginning zones and levels differ drastically compared to the end game, I have neither the time nor the patience to force myself to go that far. I have played WoW, Age of Conan, Warhammer Online, Aion, Rift, and TOR, and I have never been turned off to a game so quickly.
The game's story and setting also felt flat to me. In this regard, I do not have well articulated reason. Essentially, I thought a Space-ish MMO would be refreshing, but it felt thrown together.
I wish they provided more abilities in the beginning levels. I think that would have alleviated some of my complaints about the earlier levels.
Nope. Tried two beta weekends but it didn't interest me.
Glad to see it'll be home for many out there, it felt very polished with very fluid character animations, but it just wasn't for me.
There Is Always Hope!
Already pre-ordered but I really dread playing it. Not once in my 3 beta test sessions did I feel the game was good enough for me, let alone a sub. But I promised some online friends I've been gaming with for over 6 years I'd come game with them. I talked them into playing Rift, SWTOR and GW2 so I sort of owe them a game I'd join them in. Especially more that I turned down their request to join them in FFXIV. Hopefully if it's anything like that foray then our time in Wildstar will last less then 3 months.
I'm holding out hope they join me in ArcheAge when it releases.
Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!
Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

Well, i've been playing Eve Online since february 2004, so i am not sure how that somehow doesn't equate to me being a long term player, as for FF XIV;ARR, i started playing it when it was FF XIV, and soon dropped it admittedly, it was pretty terrible, but i've been there since the relaunch and not regretted a minute of it, i just play whatever i want, when i feel like it, and i can afford to do so. As for the other, i am long past the stage where i feel i have to be the best of the best, i play for fun, not as a second job/life replacement.
I also have a wife, a dog, and a vegetable allotment that persists in needing weeding on a daily basis, the wife drives me bonkers, my dog plainly is bonkers.. so i play MMO's
