WildStar won Jeuxvideo.com's Best MMO 2012 at Gamescom this year!
With its 3 millions unique visitors per month, Jeuxvideo.com is one of the biggest players, if not the biggest, in the EU media space. And this year, they gave our beloved WildStar with the Best MMO for GC 2012 award!
You can read the article in French if you'd like. If not, we included the main quotes below for your pleasure!
"Standing out from the MMORPG crowd is far from easy. WildStar seems to have achieved this perfectly"
"We completely fell in love with WildStar during this gamescom. The developer's team succeeded in making everything they had envisioned... We're really looking forward to playing"
They also really liked our Paths system as well as our Momentum combat system:
"On top of Race and Class choices, WildStar offers a Path system which allows the Scientist, for example, to study his/her surroundings or the Settler to build structures, shops or Taxi hubs. Even the skill system is original, moving away from the old school activation system by implementing an area of effect system which comes in different shapes and forms, that requires players to be aware of their positioning."
[Psst...that area effect thingy they mention? It's what we call Telegraphs. We'll go more in-depth about this later]
As Carbine Studios' resident Frenchman, let me say: "Merci Jeuxvideo.com!"
