  • published the article Megaservers are Coming; Free Realm Transfers in the Meantime

    If you didn't hear yet, Carbine announced today that they are working towards implementing megaservers soon. It won't happen for a bit, they're still working on the tech, but it's in the works and they want to get this implemented as quickly as possible. While that's happening, they also announced they will open up realm transfers to everyone for free, until the megaservers take shape.

    The megaservers will replace all the current servers in each "Data Center" and there will only be two options, PvE and PvP. They'll be increasing the character slot count to compensate for the lower amount of servers to pick from, but as Cougar states below, the downside to all this is that realm rule sets, or those marked as Role Playing, will go away. Carbine's work-around for this is to include 5 region-wide chat channels, Roleplay, French, German, Roleplay French and Roleplay German.

    Check out Cougar's post below for all the finer details, suffice to say, a lot of changes are coming to WildStar and Carbine is really trying to listen to the players and work towards making the best game they can. Megaservers are definitely a step in the right direction and I'm excited to see them implemented and the world of Nexus to become even more livelier than before.

    Quote from Cougar

    Hi everybody,

    First off, we’d like to apologize that we’ve been so quiet about the state of our servers; we wanted to be certain that our new tech was in a solid enough state where we could speak confidently about some exciting new developments we want to share with all of you. We’re close to finalizing a goal we’ve always had for our servers, something that will bring long-term benefits for our players and their WildStar experience.

    In the near future, we will be implementing Megaservers for WildStar.

    Going the Megaserver route means that we vastly increase server capacity allowing for greater critical mass of our player base, resulting in more people, more groups, more activity and more raids… more of everything that makes WildStar so fun. The Megaservers and their increased player capacity will give fans more options to group up and enjoy WildStar with friends and other players for a long time to come.

    Under the new MegaServers, there will be one PvP and one PvE realm per Data Center. We’ll also increase the number of available character slots for each Megaserver. There’s lots more information to come, with some questions already answered in our FAQ and more on the way.
    When the time comes, all guilds, arena teams, circles, mail and auction items will transfer to the new Megaservers. The normal “realm transfer” restrictions will not apply during this transfer. Unfortunately, one of the byproducts of this is that realm rule sets will be going away, so we will replace them with five region-wide chat channels – Roleplay, French, German, French Roleplay and German Roleplay. More details on this will be revealed soon.

    Although we’re far enough in the process to begin talking about it, we are still some ways away from the Megaservers going live. One of the things we’re doing to make the wait easier is that as of this post going live, we have put free realm transfers in the game for all players.

    There’s still a lot of detail to be worked out and shared with you in the near future. We did want to let you all know where we’re headed with our new Megaservers, because we are fully aware that the game servers in their current state are a very important subject with you, our players. As always, the devs are listening, we’ve heard your feedback loud and clear and we’ll continue to listen as WildStar grows.

    We’re happy to be able to share our future plans with you, and thank you as always for your patience and support.

    Please share your thoughts with us in the feedback thread here.
