    Thanks to Bisqquit for giving me the idea to start a poll on this one.
    Thanks dear!

    Well it's easy, what do you like more?
    WS
    or W*

    And mayby say in your post why? If you have some extra motive.

    And there are indeed no ''I don't care'' ''I don't mind'' options.....just cut the <REDACTED> and choose ;)

    WS

    I get what your trying to do with the W* but for the not so "hip" masses people may not understand.

    wildstar = ws or w* for me ws is better because two key clicks from the same finger is easier to type than a key click hold shift, 8 button, release shift on top of being less confusing than wild asterisk is that a w swear word what swear word starts with w? i'm so confused. That was actually what went through my head the first time i saw w*.

    Well I just took them because at some site's they say W* = Wildstar instead of using WS = Wildstar.
    I myself use WS, love it and it seems to be fitting.

    But well just wanted to know if there are people who like W* better, and seems that 1 person does :D

    It's how you abbreviate WildStar some people think it should be WS some people think it should be W*

    Just like it's not World of Warcraft, it's WoW. It's not GuildWars2, it's GW2.

    So if anyone has any issues with letting the w* acronym Rest in Peace we have yet to hear them.

    I know what W* means. I get it.

    I know what WS means. I get that too.

    Use whatever one you prefer, just as long as you don't start calling the game "\/\/5" I think people will understand what you're saying and be fine with it.

    Seriously, don't get what the big deal is, or why one of them should "rest in peace". It's just a personal preference thing, and none of them is any more "right" than the other.

    I generally use WS myself, because it seem clearer, but I find W* kind of cute.
