In an effort so consolidate flagging server populations, WildStar developer Carbine Studios announced that it will be implementing “megaservers” for the game, essentially merging the 22 servers currently active in the Europe and North America regions. The new megaservers will consist of a single PvE and PvP server per region, with specialty ruleset servers such as language-specific and roleplaying realms being eliminated. Carbine will implement special roleplaying and language-specific chat channels to help offset this change.
Players will have their total character slots increased to 12 once the megaservers go live, and Carbine will allow players to add surnames to their characters to avoid name collisions. In the meanwhile, Carbine has opened free realm transfers for the entire player population until the megaservers go live.
