Open Beta Closed; Ops Week Just Started!

Carbine announced today that even though open beta is now officially over, they're moving onto the next phase they're calling Ops Week. While it maybe 12 days and not a week, Carbine will be opening up the servers here and there for some focused testing of their systems. You can read all about it on the official forums here!

Carbine has no intention of announcing when the servers will open at this time, be sure to follow them on Twitter and Facebook to learn when the servers open up again, which should be durring business hours Monday-Friday.

When is Ops Week?

Ops Week (Short for Operations Week) covers the period between the end of Open Beta (May 18th) and headstart (00:01 PDT / 07:01 UTC May 31st). 

… but it isn’t a week.

Yes yes, details. At one point in the long long ago it was only a week, but as plans changed and evolved it grew, but the name stuck.

What is Ops Week?

During this time, the various teams around Carbine and NCSOFT will be preparing for the launch of WildStar and will be putting the final touches on everything. This means we will be testing various launch systems, practicing our disaster recovery processes, making sure our fail overs fail over correctly, and putting some extra testing on our final Release Candidate. 

Who will get to play?

Everyone. We should be leaving the Open Beta key page up for the duration of Ops Week, and assuming the servers are available to play, you can join in. (We might have to take it down at some point - the point of Ops Week is flexibility). (EDIT: noon'ish PDT) Aaand it looks like that page might already be gone. No ETA atm.

When will the servers be up for Ops Week?

We aren’t going to pre-announce the windows. As the teams decide that we need something tested, we will announce it on social media, and open up the servers for as long as we need in order to fulfill the testing.

How long will the servers be up?

It will be completely random. We might be only up for 1 hour, we might be up longer.

No really. When will you be up?

Most of these testing windows will be during business hours for PDT. There should at least be one overnight soak test somewhere in the week to test the new build.
