    Hey all,

    This year at the WildStar booth for PAX East 2013, I produced a pile of business cards to highlight the WildStar Community. Carbine were excited enough by the concept to actually hand them out both at the booth and at the Curse After Party. These cards showed new prospective players where the community is!

    Now it's your turn! Do you want some of this cards to hand out in your neighbourhood? At a local convention or gaming event? Then WSC can supply you with them! For a small postage donation we'll send you a dozen cards (or more if you need them - ask about availability).​
    The cards are glossy on the front and matte on the back. The QR Code links to the Community Fansite Listing here on WSC but otherwise features the URL's for WildStar Central, WildStar Forums and WildStar Roleplay (the Big 3 Forum Communities).​
    Place your orders by sending the postal address you want them sent to, to fansites@wildstar-central.com with a subject line mentioning "Community Cards".​
    Grab a Card and Pass It On!​

    Amazing idea. Too bad I already went to Rezzed, or I'd be all up on this.

    This is a fantastic idea. There is a gaming store where they play table top and TCG's near me. But too bad I never have time to go up there :p or I would totally get some of those to give to the owner to pass out.

    Wouldn't having the actual gamesite be a good thing to have right on the card, or is the point just to show fansites and assume people taking the card already know about the game?

    As said, these were handed out originally to gamers at PAX East at the WildStar booth - they're for advertising the WildStar Community and not WildStar as a game itself.

    On that basis they're probably not the best cards just to be left somewhere for anyone to pick up, but better for handing out to those who are already showing interest in the game! (such as at gaming conventions, people you speak with already about WildStar, etc.)

    Honestly I would take a pile of these to EBExpo in October, but I don't think WildStar is making a showing there so it may be somewhat pointless. Still though, this is a really nice idea, keep up the good work guys!

    Zap - if there are no other plans we have 26 people that can be asked to hand these out in Gamescom ^^

    It doesnt just have to be conventions , keep in mind that even talking to friends and family you can hand a card out too.. I took a couple to work to hand out to a couple employees that game.. this is s chance to get the word out maybe not just to gamers but people that you might like to play with.. its a chance to get others involved when they see how great the community is.

    Heck if someone likes facebook games they might like wildstar housing. Its just another way to get word out, and they look cool so your not just writing a link on scrappaper to someone you think would be interested.

    You might hang out at a comic shop or game at barns and nobals with geeks, take cards and get the word out.

    So even if your not going to a big convention, don't hesitate to get some and show off that wildstar spirit.

    Man I am so spending the postage on this.

    Zap-Robo, I just want to thank you personally right now for being one of the greatest community leaders I've ever had the pleasure to know. It's an inclusive, friendly, inviting, intelligent, mature, and helpful community.

    Everyone at WildStar Roleplay appreciates the HECK out of this site and all the good work you guys do here, and this is just yet another thing to pile on top of the heaping plate of goodness!

    Expect an order from Ender and myself very soon!
