Something that we were promised early out of the gate was consistent content updates from Carbine on a near monthly basis. It is certainly an interesting idea and one that few MMOs have been able to do, let alone do well. Guild Wars 2 has been the only MMO, from my experience, to have a consistent “Living Story” that provides interesting plot continuations. While I no longer play the game, I’m sure they keep the roleplaying community entertained.
Now, with the new content Ultra-Drop “Strain,” it seems that we already have a new threat, new plot and more mysteries to solve. What does this all mean for Roleplayers, not just The Strain, but new content and world story on a monthly basis?
Our team produced an excellent podcast in Episode 54 that covered all of the fun stuff about the world of Nexus as well as a great discussion on how spammers, bots, and hackers are currently impacting the Wildstar game play. It was great to hear a discussion between players who truly care about the game express their opinions, concerns, and solutions to improve game play through better security safeguards.
I am a security guy. I have been working in the information security field for over a decade and can understand the frustration with Carbine for not doing more about stopping those pesky spammers, bots, and hackers, but here’s the thing about security: Security is a Balance between keeping the players safe & happy and staying profitable to keep the business up and running.
The Dominion is a vicious empire that will stop at nothing to achieve its staunch goal of complete galactic conquest. This is simply because the Eldan told them to do it. The Cassians were gifted advanced technology and a race of protectors, the Mechari, to guide them on a heavy burden placed on them. “Become the rulers of the galaxy, it’s your destiny.” That was the message, and they heard it loud and clear.
The entirety that is Wildstar is focused around this mission. Without it, we would not be on Nexus, there would be no Exiles and there would certainly be no Dominion. Let’s dive right into this Galactic Empire and its vast collective of races.
I have to be honest. I wasn’t really all that excited about the Exiles when the original 3 races were introduced. Humans have always been pretty boring to me, the Granok seemed like a power race that I am not usually about, and the Aurin…well…bunny people? Meh. Not my cup of tea.
Then the Mordesh were introduced and everything changed. I dove into Exile Lore and found myself writing out character ideas and backstories. The Exiles are a scrappy bunch and deserve so much praise for being not only a clever bunch, but also for still being alive when the Dominion seems to have a limitless amount of soldiers and resources to squash them at every stop in the road. Today we’ll be going into detail about the Exiles and each race of this patchwork faction.
