    As all of us know, the WildStar Community is shaping up to be one of the greatest gaming communities out there and the game isn't even released yet. With that said, it is time to join forces once again and show everyone why we are great with a Community Gaming Night.

    Not just any gaming night, but an Extra Life Charity event!



    For 25 hours, starting on November 2nd at 10am EDT till November 3rd at 10am EST we will play games together as a community - plus WildStar Central and Friends will stump up some prizes to be won, along with all the fun!

    This event raises money for children's hospitals around the world. We have picked UC Davis Children's Hospital (a hospital in Carbine Studio's home state of California) to support and raise $5000 (or more!) for. This should be easy with our large community as if everyone just gave a dollar we would double our goal even.. it's simple and fun!

    We are hoping to have lots of players and maybe a few special ones, its too early to tell! But stop by and check out the live streams for the event! You'll certainly find the WSC Stream up at running at http://twitch.tv/wildstarcentral

    Subterfuge Vanguard will also be helping me host the event and staying up all night with Zap and I ... but you can too! Join the WildStar Community Team and help us push up to (and break through) that $5,000 goal!

    Join the Team @ http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=12390

    Let's come together again and give hope to kids and brighten someones day!

    Arawulf streaming on http://twitch.tv/wildstarfans
    MisterFallenAngel streaming on http://twitch.tv/misterfallenangel
    Nyxis streaming on http://twitch.tv/mrnyxis
    ZapRobo streaming on http://twitch.tv/wildstarcentral

    For those who can't join the team on the 2nd then consider donating whatever you can! You can do this from the individual members' pages - like mine here - and click on "Support Me". Every size donation counts, so please give what you can...

    Now that I am back from vacation, I can plan more with this event.. Please if you are going to join in and play and you join the Wildstar Community team.. everyone can pick who they want to donate towards and it all goes to the team total ... the more people that wish to play the more exposure we get.

    SVG will be doing the main streaming, but you can break off into your own streams if you dont enjoy a game that is being played and still raise money from friends and family!

    If anyone has connnections with guilds or groups , let them know about the event.. even if they can cannot join in they may wish to donate to the kids and get chances to win prizes!

    How can I get involved in some of this sweet gaming action! Id love to play some kinda MOBA and do a donate a buck per kill or something, like a walkathon. Are there forums or groups that will be playing specific games? Id love to mess around with some Smite or TF2.

    you can join the team here extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=12390

    Most of what is played are MOBA's and you are welcome to join in any of the games, last time we jumped between games to keep it from being the same thing all day .. Smite, TF2 and LoL were the main ones that we played, but anyone can join in the game play .. we will have enough team captains no matter who wants to join in!

    Everyone for the Extra Life event, make sure your games are all updated so you won't miss out on game time, because let's face it 25 hours isnt enough lol ... November 2nd at 10am EST .. we will be having a time change at 2am so that is where the extra hour comes in, set those clocks back! lol
    Have lots of water on hand, snacks and food ..
    There will be different streams going on and they will all be posted!
    WSC and SVG will be running games/teams .. anyone can join in the game play or donate to the charity site!

    Ladies and gentlemen... with only a couple of days to go I thought I'd bring you up to date with some of the special things we have in planning so far...
    • We will be joined by a brace of Carbine Studios developers, so you can get to know some more of the dev team we all know and love...
      • Rebecca Richards - Content Designer
      • Curtis Henry - Associate Cinematics Designer
      • Michelle Hebert - Senior QA Tester
      • Josh Thomas - Associate Scripter
    • WildStar Swag Giveaways @ http://www.twitch.tv/wildstarcentral/
      • At certain intervals, we'll be giving away the following to a random donator
        • Granok Shirts (as seen at the last round of cons, like NYCC 2013)
        • WildStar Lanyards (white)
    • Themed Game Giveaways @ http://www.twitch.tv/wildstarcentral/
      • See a game being played on the above stream, it's likely we've secured a little something-something to be given away to lucky donators!
    Want to qualify for the WildStar giveaways in absentia? No problem! Attendance is NOT an issue! Some of the giveaways of WildStar stuffs will simply be a random drawing from ALL donators. Simply throw your hat in the ring by donating to me now! ( Donate Here - Zap Robo )

    Want to get hold of some WildStar swag early? Then get donating to Gentle Star - since she'll be giving away a WildStar lanyard to a random donator when she hits to 100 USD mark! ( source ) ( Donate Here - Gentle Star )

    Let's do some good, cupcakes - give it up (your cash, I mean) for the kids!

    So what games are you all playing? I will stream some during the event but spend most of my time dying in other peoples streams!
    I want to download the games ahead of time, I sure hope there is some TF2 as a lot of ppl can be active at same time. Any word on a Teamspeak or Mumble server?
