On the bright side, funcom's previous two MMO releases were also considered "catastrophic failures", but both games were fixed and ended up as excellent AAA MMOs.   So if Funcom's proven anything, is that they have lots of expertise in recovering from catastrophic failure and still making good games.

I'm tired of the MMO space =\. I plan to stick to the secret world, no matter the faults, as long as I can. I love the game's fundamental idea's and setting. Instead of falling into the hated past, or hyped future. I plan to actually play this game instead of complain. I like living in my denial. I'll try and find four other like-minded people to start a group.

get an understanding....i'm not saying it's crap. it needs more development time.

No offense, but you've seen 15 minutes of beta footage from one guy.

Not the same thing as playing it yourself.

 

I'm far from going into defense mode over this, the game needs work, yes, but the april release looks pretty much on schedule to me.

Obviously you will need to take my word for it.

+1

My thought exactly. So tired of the same old same old I will play and stick with this one. At least its something different, and at this point its either support people who are trying to change the genre some, or quit it altogether.

Thats why GW2 will get my money ( B2P , no raids and PvP as a focus and not an afterthought)

TSW- New questing dynamic, modern day setting, skill based character progression, ect

They may fail and suck but at least its something different. Not WoW on a spacestation with glow sticks.

if its the same leak video I saw, video from 1 guy who positively gushes over it and is trying to persuade his guild mates to play it instead of SWTOR.  A guy with a 5 year old computer playing it with the graphics toned down quite a lot.

And it uses the same engine as age of conan. 

it uses a newer version of the engine than conan - its on version 3. conan was version 2.  they recently retro fitted some features from TSW into AOC and upgraded AOC to 2.5

Left for dead 2 uses the same engine as Quake 1 (updgraded)

TSW is like a giant jigzaw puzzle at the moment. They have finished all the edge pieces, put the sky parts together but you can't see the whole picture yet and it doesn't look near finished, even though you have done 95% of the work and all that is left is putting the non-sky prebuilt pieces in the right spot.

I visited Funcom about a month ago and one of the lead designers wanted to show of a piece of the game that wasn't in the beta at the time. It was obviously far along in the alfa testing and quite presentable, but he wasn't allowed to show it off. Funcom is doing it quite differently this time compared to AoC.

They are close-mouthed and instead of building hype around features that might make it to launch, they are waiting for them to look finished in alfa before putting them into the beta and then after some time in the beta, they release the information. I think Funcom wants people to remember TSW as a game that gave you more than you expected.

The downside to this is that I think the open beta is going to be very short. :/

I got it with SWTOR, when the devs were going "we are going to copy wow", obviously if you don't like wow you also wont like SWTOR.

I don't get this Im a fan of upcoming game A so I'm going to slag off upcoming game B and upcoming game C, it's kinda creepy.

TSW iswhat im looking forwards to next, but I'm also looking forwards to ArcheAge and Planetside2, slightly looking forwads to Dominus and GW2 but worried e-sports will dominate over "casual PVP" as arenanet put it.  Heck if TERA gets good reviews from trustworthy sites (e.g. the ones that didn't give SWTOR 95% a week after release) I will give that a go too.

I wouldn't worry too much about GW2 PVP vs PVE. I play GW on and off still and never pvp in GW. There are plenty of stuff to do besides PVP. I am sure they kept that in mind when they are making GW2.

b)  Funcom is participating in a far more brutal mmo market, right in between SWTOR and GW2 and well, 1000s of social facebook type MMOs from North America and Korea;

c)  Funcom is releasing TSW on a far tighter release schedule with less testing and with less beta feedback.

 

It is going to be a catastrophic failure. 

Hmm twice ? Anarchy Online was later that same year Awarded Game of the year. No where in your post do you even bring up AO so i am assuming you did nto even play that game, and are just basing your "Twice" on conjecture and the terrible launch AO had. 

AoC was not the worst released MMO, it was far from good, and the over hyping of the game was a huge detriment to it. AoC has aged and has an OK population. 

I am not sure how you can make such a blanket statement and expect to have any credibility. 

This post is pretty obvious a troll.

I don't see this game flourishing as a subscription game.  I do think Funcom can learn from their mistakes, but good luck competing in this MMO market.

Anarchy Online is how old ? And it still has massive issues. AoC the same thing, and I will be suprised if TSW is any different.

reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.

 It earned MMO of the year in 2001 from one magazine.

 

I'm with the OP. I don't see how any one can anticipate this game. But, also, I couldn't care less about your unfounded hype and name calling. Good luck.

Quick little tidbit. what game has ever launched without a face plant. honestly, every game starts off bad and moves forward until its good. so people who are whining about having a bad product on launch i will say this.

 

WELL DUH, your basically stating that day becomes night. you can sit back saying "heh heh, i was right" when everyone already knows thats how MMO's start up your making a pointless statement.

Because i can.
I'm Hopeful For Every Game, Until the Fan Boys Attack My Games. Then the Knives Come Out.
