Live often mean Live public realms, or is in reference to a the game or a game patch going Live and being released to the public. The live realms are the normal set of realms provided by Carbine for regular game player the current version of WildStar, what ever version that is. Regular game accounts need a regular invitation, or code, to be able to join them.
These realms are similar to the PTR or public test realms. They are divided by Account region, such as NA, and EU. Once a game version is released, the these normal release realms get updated to the new version, and the PTRs will be used to test something else.
- Initial WildStar public beta testing, before the game's first product release, was done on the regular live game realms, and PTRs were effectively reserved for private internal testing.
