Free Transfers from PVE to PVP Realms are now available!

Carbine is listening! To balance out the density of population on the recently established Megaservers, Carbine now allows all players to decide on their own on which server they want to play. Free transfers from PVP to PVE Servers and vice versa are now available.

So far the switch to Megaservers seems to be a huge success for WildStar and a blessing for the community. The community has awoken from a deep slumber and numerous community driven events are already scheduled for the next couple of weeks. Guilds are successfully recruiting and for the moment it seems, that the infamous "Roster-Boss" is gone for good. According to rumors even a Warplot-Match has already taken place. *wig out*

Unfortunately not everything shaped up that perfectly. Players all over the web are addressing the issue of a high imbalance between PvE and PvP realms. Especially the European PvP Realm Luminai, is according to the community highly endangered.

After analyzing the situation Carbine finally decided to intervene by throwing an ancient rule overboard. Free Realm Transfers from PVE to PVP servers and vice versa are now available for the first time. Time will tell if this measure will help to solve the problem.

Server Transfer Update
Hi everybody,

We wanted to thank you for all of the feedback and insight you’ve been giving us on our recent megaserver change, as well as the health and status of the servers since then. It’s been great to see so many players coming together and enjoying the megaservers, arranging awesome PvP battles and player events, bolstering guild recruitment and open world event participation.

We’ve been listening to your feedback and understand there have been some concerns for the health of PvP servers following the PvP to PvE transfers we enabled for a short time after the megaserver deployment.

When we looked at our data, the PvP Realms (mainly Luminai for our EU players) seemed healthy, but we understand this wasn’t what players were seeing or feeling in-game. As such, we sat down and discussed how to ensure all the megaserver realms would continue to be healthy and sustain an active and positive community.

As a result of these discussions, we have decided to move forward with the following;

As of 10/28/14, once NA servers come back online, we will enable free PvP to PvE and PvE to PvP realm transfers. You will be able to transfer from PvP to PvE servers and vice-versa, for free, for your games account region. Normal realm transfer rules will still apply, for more information on server transfer restrictions please see this Support article.

For the time being, these transfers will remain open indefinitely, but we will be closely monitoring the situation and if we feel it necessary we will remove this service. Rest assured, we will ensure to give you appropriate notice if we do decide to shut these free transfers down, as well as an explanation as to why.

We expect there will be some concerns about players using PvE servers to level up, without the dangers of a PvP server, and then transferring across once they reach max level, however we felt that ensuring the health and community of each server is more vital. We will be keeping a close eye on things for any shenanigans or foul play though.

We want to thank you again for all your feedback, and apologize to those who felt we should have responded sooner. As you can imagine this was not a decision we wanted to make lightly and we wanted to make sure we gave the best option for everybody.

We hope you’ll continue to enjoy WildStar, whether that’s organizing events, stomping on Raid bosses, or creating amazing houses, no matter what server you are on.

All the best,
Team WildStar
