Inspired somewhat by the recent post on WildStar Central and Allstar 's article over at MMORPG.com I thought it would be good to see what folk here remembered as their most epic moment in MMO gaming history. Was it the first time you stepped in to the world and gazed at wonder at everything, through to the first time you were involved in raiding or maybe that crafted epic item that cost you in time and fortune, it could be just as simple as PvP fun in the open world.
Let us know in the comments what you remember most, what was that one epic moment in your (MMO) gaming history?...
On the Saturday evening after dinner there were two competitions held for attendees to get involved in, as we are a competitive bunch we of course got involved in both.
First up was a speed run of Stormtalon’s Lair, a PvE five-man dungeon available to players at level 22, this was the first time that the dungeon had been playable and was only actually revealed a few days prior to the ArkShip weekend.
Our group consisted of a Stalker (yours truly) Kephir healing on an Esper, Fallanx tanking on a Warrior, Tvar dpsing on a Warrior and Merketh supporting on a hybrid build Spellslinger.
Due to this being a competition we rushed through the instance and sadly did not pay much attention to the smaller details like loot and scenery. But to compare it to any recent games I have to say that WildStar PvE is a mix of WoW’s smoothness and combat combined...
So a few weeks ago as most of you will know by now, a few of us were invited to the WildStar Fan event ArkShip in Brighton, UK. The event was held in the Hilton hotel on the beach and oddly enough it was a sunny weekend in Brighton (apparently it rains a lot there)!
The event was manned by staff from Carbine and NCSOFT. Leading the charge was the charismatic Troy “Aether” Hewitt, Community Director and Producer, his right hand man Global Community Manager Loic “Atreid” Claveau and European Community Manager Aidan “Faelan” Taylor compered the day and evening activities and introduced the rest of the team that was there:
Carbine: Chad Moore - Lead Narrative Designer Jon Jelinek - Lead 3D Artist...
We have been secretly beavering away setting up a BOON Control shop for what is probably the last year (possibly more), well I hate to tell you but it is still a work in progress. Due to constraints with all the readily available shopfronts that we can set up (with little to no hassle) things stalled, work commitments also didn't help with the speed that this happened at.
Well all your requests have been heard and I am pleased to announce that we will be opening (sort of) for business from today although we don't have a fancy shop front to go with it just yet (SoonTM). For now we will deal with this via forum threads and PM's as we did the last time round.
So on to the main event.
