Dotch brought this unjustice to my attention. Apparently there's a chance there might not be an EU RP-PvP server at launch!

I don't know why or who had such a shite idea but that seems to be the case right now.

Please go and reply to THIS THREAD if you want to have one at launch!

I urge all members who intended to play WildStar to post in that Forum thread to ensure that the RP-PvP server for EU is up at launch.

Even if you aren't really into the RP aspect, having a home for the Guild is a must

We need more petitions...

Or must be prepared to choose and announce an unofficial RP-PvP server for community

If it comes down to that there isn't an Official RP-PvP then I'd suggest picking a popular PvP server and RP'ing to your hearts content.

I'm sure in no time it would become an unofficial RP-PvP server anyway, but always choose a popular server

Bronn on the official forums:

QuoteHallo,

hier nochmal kurz die Klarstellung:

Wir werden keine deutschsprachigen RP-PvP-Realms anbieten, weil das Interesse an der PvP-Realmart bereits sehr niedrig war und wir glauben, dass das langfristige Interesse an einem solchen Realm nicht ausreichend vorhanden sein wird. Der zitierte Tweet bezog sich darauf welche Serverarten global verfügbar sein werden und geht nicht auf die einzelnen Spachserver ein.

Wenn ihr auf einem RP-PvP-Realm spielen möchtet, müsstest ihr also einen englischen Realm wählen. Was ihr eventuell alternativ machen könnt ist, dass ihr als RP-PvPler versucht eine Community aufzubauen, die dann gemeinsam auf einen DE-PvP-Realm geht. Hierzu könntet ihr beispielsweise  unser Rollenspiel-Forum nutzen.

It would then look like there will be an English EU RP-PvP server since the German players are told to play on an English one if they want to play on one.

Nice!  That almost blew away my fears... though some part of me is still nervous

I know the feeling, given that Gaffer said this yesterday in his AMA:

QuoteOps guys say that current plans are for RP_PVE only - they're worried about the demand for RP-PVP. So a petition here might be the way to go.

I can understand that they say there needs to be demand for it.
And it needs to be from a sufficient amount of players.
A RP-PVP server is a disaster if it only servers 1.000 players, both for carbine in maintaining it and the players on it as it would be a desolate server.

Everybody is happier if the server is filled up properly, an empty server is a disaster in first place for the people on that server. You Always want to be on an active server, if we end up choosing between 'empty RP-PVP' and 'full PVP' ... then pick the normal PVP one.
If you pick the 'empty' one, people will get bored quickly and the game will be over after 1 or 2 months.

If they choose not launch with an RP-PVP server then there's need to be a way for those who wanted that server to join one if they decide to launch one at a later date.

On official forum, wildstar community was able to create a new big petition for RP-PvP servers (at the moment, more than 100 signatures):
https://forums.wildstar-o ... rver-please-carbine/

I advice to support it ^_^ Maybe, Devs will hear us.

From Cougar:

QuoteI'm absolutely watching all of the feedback on this topic. 
 
I want nothing more than for WildStar to be a long term success, and a significant part of that is NOT opening too many realms, or opening a realm that will not be populated enough to provide a fun experience for everyone on it. One of the (negative) consequences of jacking up the single realm concurrency as high as we have is that we have to be careful about opening up less common realm types. 
 
My twitter comment stands; RP-PVP is a double subset. A subset of the population wants to PVP, a subset of the population wants to RP, and a subset of each of those subsets want to RP-PVP. I have to have the confidence that the LONG TERM desire for a realm with this ruleset exists at the numbers high enough that will lead to the long term success of that realm. I want to avoid server merges for as long as I can (and hey, we could be widely successful and the first server merges don't happen for over a decade - but I can't plan for that right now ).
 
I understand this is an unpopular viewpoint, and I absolutely respect the opinion of those who really want to play on this realm type. Being wrong is easy to correct, we open a new realm up and it's labeled RP-PVP, done. But if I'm right, yet we open up a realm type and it turns out that it isn't popular, that's a very expensive mistake. Have no fear, I'm not saying that because I'm turning into a suit, I say that because I will shed big (manly) Cougar tears the day I ever have to make the decision to merge servers. I've been through that before, both as a player and as a developer, and you lose players every time. People potentially lose their names, their guilds, their community identification, etc. Those that stick around usually have a BETTER time than they were pre-merge (higher dungeon queue pops, the world is more alive, etc), and the game is better for it. But man if it isn't painful. 
 
And just because I'm talking about my concern for low pops and server mergers is not a lack of confidence in WildStar by any means, it's because it is my job to prepare for all of these types of eventualities (and prevent those that I can). I'm the guy that makes contingency plans on top of contingency plans, and hopes that I never have to use them I'm the risk guy.

Promising look it does not.

He keeps saying the same thing and if not multiple thousands reply on the issue it's not gonna happen.. so far the community is trying but we're proving his point of not enough people that bothered if it's RP or not RP..

so guess then it will be pvp only server for us :/ (voted again for one, maybe it helps), but really would suck if they open up a rp-pvp later after lunch and we are "stuck" on the pvp one.

Yeah, it does look like a PvP server for us. There has been some messaging going earlier about trying to get the RP-PvP guilds onto the same server if that is the case. Haven't heard anything from it for a week or two, though. I told them that we'd prefer a server that'll be popular to avoid any future problems. Will see if there'll be anything more about that before launch.

The default server that it'd be right now would be Hazak, given it's the only option in the open beta. But, since they haven't released the server list, it's not that easy to know which servers will be popular.
