A couple of weeks ago, Carbine gathered every WildStar player up and plonked them into new megaservers, split into a PvE and PvP server in each of the game’s two regions, Europe and North America.
But rumbles of discontent have been coming out of the PvP servers, with players concerned about how quiet they were. To tackle this, Carbine’s opened the doors to free transfers between PvP and PvE servers within a region.

“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,” explains Carbine. “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.“
Carbine says that, according to the developer’s data, the PvP servers looked healthy, but since the players felt otherwise, they decided to let them decide to move if they wanted. And perhaps some PvE folk will take the plunge into a PvP server.
