Welcome to 2013, settlers! Carbine Studios’ community team has big plans for WildStar this year — resolutions, if you will.
To begin with, the team is committed to bringing the conversation to players’ turf. That means being active and engaging on social media, gaming forums, “or even your guild’s website.” The team’s second goal is to give players a voice in game design, which will involve stuff like turning livestreams into design discussions. Resolution number three is to experiment with new ways to interact with an MMO community. That will mean, to be specific, “trying new things.” Finally, the team’s planning to use beta testing as a safe environment for useful feedback, rather than releasing a beta when the game’s too late in development for meaningful changes.
We noticed that “launch the game” wasn’t among those resolutions, but the team did finish off the post with a call for 2013 to be “the year of WildStar,” so maybe all hope is not lost.
