Darkhand has declared for the Pago NA PVP server! Widow may have the cooler name but it's slammed with Oceanics, and Pergo is going to be a newb heavy clusterfuck queue-fest for the first month. Pago offers us serious competition against at least 4 large and established dominion guilds, and several other old-school PVP guilds are planning on following us shortly.
Anybody who pre-orders is going to be able to reserve your character name tomorrow at 11:00 AM PST on the Wildstar Web site. We strongly suggest you be ready with your finger on the trigger! Each reserved name is going to be unique across all servers and won't be unlocked for other servers to use for 90 days.
After much deliberation, the guilds officers voted unanimously on Friday to take up the Exile faction in Wildstar.
Our primary drivers for this decision are as follows: census data is showing a significant tilt towards the dominion faction on the PVP servers. This means faster queues and more targets for us as Exiles. Exile faction also proved to have a more polished story and more enjoyable leveling experience in beta. Finally, the majority of the guild members polled favored the Exile race choices.
While we know decisions like this can't make everyone happy, please know it was not made lightly, and that we believe this is the faction that is going to offer us the best experience.
