Hello all,
 
With contest registration closed and teams set for the showdown, we hope you’re all having a blast building the Communities of your dreams and gunning for that $2,500 grand prize!
 
As many of you are undoubtedly aware, there’s an issue in which the Community Crate will incorrectly yield a Housing Error which states that the décor limit has been reached. And while the crate itself will clearly display that the limit hasn’t been reached, players are prevented from placing any additional décor. This issue currently makes Community customization overly restrictive and therefore significantly impacts the environments you’re putting together for the Community Showdown contest.
 
After some discussion on our end, we’re all in agreement that we can’t allow this décor limit error to go unresolved until contest submissions are due. The earliest a game update can be released to fix this bug is Wednesday, October 4, which means we’re going to push the Community Showdown submission deadline back by two weeks to 11:59pm PDT on Wednesday, October 18. The winners announcement will then be made on Friday, October 27.
 
Hopefully the contest submission extension gives all teams a fair opportunity to construct Communities unencumbered by the unintended décor limit.
 
If you need a refresher on any Community showdown details, here are some key links to hi:

Best of luck to everyone—we can’t wait to tour your creations!
 
Yours,
 
Team WildStar

How will this effect the Shade's Eve Contest that is normally held every year?

We don't have plans to host the House of Haunts contest this year. We love House of Haunts, but it's unfortunate timing with the recent release of Communities, and obviously there's a lot of overlap with these two Housing/building contests.

 

If showdown teams want to go with a Jack Shade-themed Community though, we're all for it!

Thank you! I actually found out what the problem was thanks to @talkingcongas. My email account had a signature I set up a long time ago. When my emails came in it said it was from Mrs Melody instead of my email addy. So it was going to their spam folder. 

I took off the signature and resent it. All should be well now. Just waiting for confirmation!

 

Good luck to all!

HOUWZERZ!
