QuoteQ 11. What about RP Servers? Will they be merged as well?

Yes, all realms will become merged. We will however offer a region RP chat channel, similar to the FR and DE Chat Channels, so that RP activities can be kept seperate from the regular channels

Kiss goodbye to RP servers, you'll get a chat channel instead.

Megaservers: Great!
RP rule set reduced to a channel:

It's going to be great for the population... the question is will the general RP people throw a hissy fit? I know the reasons one wanted to pick the RP server and now you'll be crammed in the same can as the rest of them, I can only hope they'll stick around or we might lose the good of the community and be left with the raid progress fanatics.

Time will tell, I guess.

Edit: I guess this'll also mean I'll have a shitload of Amaranths on the one server .

2. edit: At least our guild will survive the ordeal, for ours is the oldest one called WEIRD, and there shall be none other on our PvE megaserver! Let the WEIRDness spread... muhahaha!

Lots of good stuff in the link Gaz posted:

especially liked this

Q 6. What happens if two characters from different realms have the same name?

Along with the Megaservers, we will introduce character last names. Each characters will have a unique name comprised of a first name (this is your existing character name) and a last name separated by a space. In the character select screen, you will have to choose a last name before entering the game. You will be limited to a total 30 characters including the space.

and also

Q 8. How many characters will I be able to have?

You will be able to create up to 12 characters on a single realm. The current limit is 6 characters.

Have been very busy in RL the last few weeks, but looking forward to catching up with the guild later in the week.

Unless you're on a PvP server

It's Megaservers time!

It was announced not too long ago that Megaservers were coming to WildStar. We’ve remained quiet simply because we were hard at work developing and testing this new technology. The hard work has paid off and we’re ready to make the transition! That being said, we’re happy to announce we will be bringing all Realms down to begin the Megaserver merge on Wednesday, October 15th 2014!
What exactly does that mean?
It means that by introducing Megaservers, we are increasing server capacity. You can enjoy the game with more players around you; grouping with friends, raiding with guildmates, and providing more opportunities to enjoy all that WildStar has to offer!
We called upon all Nexus citizens to vote for the new Megaserver names and the majority have spoken!  Below are the names of your new Realms:
                                            North America                                  Europe
PvP Megaserver               Warhound                                          Luminai
PvE Megaserver               Entity                                                    Jabbit
Here are the specifics, you’ll find the answers to the most common questions below but check out the Megaserver FAQ on our support site for more detailed information.
What’s happening on October 15th 2014?
All realms will be brought down for maintenance beginning Wednesday, October 15th at 5:00 AM Pacific Time, for a period of 12 to 24 hours.
This is a complex operation and we want to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible,you can stay informed on the progress of the downtime by visiting us on the forums and social media.
This is not standard maintenance,  so in appreciation for your patience while we make this transition, we are giving a month’s worth of Boom-Boxes (One per day for 30 days) and a free day of game time to all our players, with the additional time to be credited to accounts by no later than the end of October.

How will the Megaservers work?
After the transition, all characters that were on PvP realms before will be on either Warhound (NA) or Luminai (EU), and all the characters that were on a PvE server (Roleplaying realms included) will be on Entity (NA) or Jabbit (EU). The North America/Europe region locking will still apply.

Are all characters, guilds and their belongings being moved?
All characters of level 3 or more will be moved with all their stuff. All guilds, arena teams, circles, mail and auction items will also be moved. All level 1 and 2 characters that have not been logged into the game within 30 days will be deleted. So if you have one of those that you’d like to keep, now is time to act!

What will happen to my character name?
Along with the Megaservers, we will be introducing surnames into WildStar to prevent any duplicate names. The first time you log into WildStar after the transition, you will be prompted to add a second name - and if you like, you can change your original name at this time as well. As we explain above, we will be deleting any characters that are below level 3 and have not logged in within 30 days prior to the merger, in order to remove duplicate names. If you’re short of ideas for a new or second name, you can check our Exiles and Dominion naming guides for some inspiration.

What happens if two guilds from different realms have the same name?
Our goal is to ensure the transition to Megaservers is as smooth and convenient as possible. However, it is not possible for two guilds to use the exact same guild name. When a naming conflict exists, the oldest guild with the conflicted name will be permitted to keep it. If the name chosen for your guild is no longer available, the Guild Leader will be prompted to rename their guild on first login. Names are checked for eligibility once the leader confirms name change. Guild Leaders can also choose “Remind Me Later” which will give the guild a temporary name with special characters and the Guild Leader will be prompted to change the name the next time they log-in.

Please make sure your new Guild’s name following our naming policy which is available at http://www.wildstar-online.com/en/legal/naming-policy/.

I’m transferring from a French / German realm. Will I be able to find other players that speak my language?
If your characters are coming from a French or German realm, you’ll automatically get added to the French or German zone and advice channels with these characters.
If you’re coming from an English realm or using a new character, you can join these chat channels manually. For a full list of commands please check the FAQ.
If your question is still unanswered, feel free to ping us on the forums or on Twitter. Thank you again for your patience!
