Well I don't see any gems for gold on that list, and I did enjoy AO for a long time, so I'm going to chance it. The chance with the $60 price tag, not the $200 one. I'll leave the lifetime subs to the big spenders. Of course, if I love the game and the lifetime sub is available after launch, that's something else entirely.

I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals.

Don't you think they learned a little from back then?!

If they make the same mistakes again, then they do deserve to fail.

Google "Anarchy Online" launch issues.

I suspect folks were expecting Funcom to learn from their AO mistakes for AoC.  Didn't quite turn out that way.

Third time is the charm, hopefully?  But I wouldn't bet on it.

This makes me sad, the regular game doesn't even seem to come with 30 days free. :(


Funcom, what are you doing?

Official reaction from Funcom at their Facebook page:


The Secret World ‎[Waldgeist] - 30 Days of playtime with the core game package.



So you can order 30 days in advance, that start when the 30 days that are included in the core package end.

Can't use my username because I already used it for AoC/AO.../sigh

Also, really no special chars in the password field? Oh, that's real secure.

AO i had only heard how bad the launch was, but i was there for aoc launch it wasn't bad, i do not remember pulling my hair out or anything,everything worked correctly ,i read alot more than i saw, i wasn't sure where people were getting the info, but i was worried about the game before it launched, it started out before beta with some really interesting class types, then they widdled it down and tryed to over simplify it, that was discouraging,then delayed it, i tihnk they gave an unrealistic launch date to start,and gave too much info that they had to retract or change, there is pleanty of info about TSW, all you have to do is read the articles on or go to there youtube page and watch there released videos, it gives enough info to let you know what the game is suposed to be like and what they actually have working , and i have yet to see a video of a live demo that shows something not working  , i think that this is very important everything works in a live demo, as far as the item shop thing, its going to be mostly vanity items, the xp potion does not bother me too much, thats not really a "pay to win" mechanic, everyone gets xp so you really  can not say you have to buy it, the xp potions will not make it imposible for the average player to fight and win against someone with xp potions,and about the 30 day sub, the wording is ambigous, does it come with 30 days and the master pack gives an extra 30 ? u have yet to read anything about this, but that is a little worrisome, it does apear that they intend to nickle and dime us, hopefully they will not start adding in items that you HAVE to buy in order to play...i was realyl thinking about a lifetime sub, but i think they will still give you that option even after the game launches,well guys and gall lets cross out fingers and hope they get things right.

  • Go to your account from your other Funcom name.
  • Login
  • On the sidebar, account option select Add game
  • Add TSW
  • Then you either get a list of payment options and you select pre-order or you select View payment and pick the pre-order.
It's bloated I know and it creates an additional game account into your funcom general account.
Also to the poster above me, paragraphs are your friends. Wall of text makes it unreadable.

I have pre-ordered Funcom games in the past and learned the hard way. While this game looks pretty cool... I will never pre-order a game from Funcom again.

I will wait to see how the game is doing 6 months from now.

You get the pre order bonuses, namly the beta weekend access, from ordering from Amazon or does it have to be off their site?

1) Look at the development time of AOC and just how much the investors made them rush it AND WHO WAS in charge of advertising and where that guy is now(hint: fired)

2) look at development time of TSW and the entirelly different approach to it?

3) Look at tehe fac that TSW Closed beta has been going on for quite some time already.

4) look at the fact none of head developers of AOC are working on TSW and that its helmed by the guy who pretty much only radiates and produces AWESOME stuff, also known as the guy who reinvented and saved Anarchy Online.

5) Look at the fact that it will be openly playable at PAX so you will have dozens of days to form an opinion before buying. 

6.) Diablo III....uhhhhhh, not touching that thing. Ever. Diablo franchise is dead.

How is this any different than WOW?  WOW has a cash shop.. they just call it something else. You can buy ingame mounts and pets.. how is that different than costumes in TSW?

Yet people flip out over the term cash shop... tons of games have it and subscriptions.

Also, to compare what this game will launch like compared to AO is ridiculous.  I doubt any of those people even work there anymore, and if they do...they have a great deal more experience now.

I think its funny, its GREAT they finally start promoting and selling the game now but their new garanteed beta access offer means nothing to me.

They offered garanteed beta access in the past few years before and they havent lived up to that yet, granted thanks to the pushback, they are still able to live up to their promise. But I STILL think its shady dealing. If things did go as planned they couldnt have lived up to it. Im positive the garanteed access promotion isnt based on first come first served either, I accepted that deal the same day they started it. Took them up on several offers and still.. nothing.

I do hope the game turns out to be successfull but I wont buy the game till either they live up to their previous promotions or after the game is released.. if I end up buying it at all.

I stuck with them through bad and worse since day 1 of Ao, stuck with them since day 1 of Aoc and I already would have been happy with some information. hate to say it but before Im willing to invest more money in them they'll have to redeem themselves first.

       I find that with MMOs (and video games) patience is a virtue...The longer you can wait them out the better.....ITs not like in a year the game will cost 100 bucks, 30 to sub, and 400 for a lifetime......Most likely it will be free to download, 15 a month still (if not f2p by then), and 100 for a lifetime sub......Funcom knows that this is the time to price gouge and they are going to do it.

For me, the biggest pull, is the class/role system. These systems are by far the most replayable in any game type. You can look at GW1 for referance, you get a new elite skill try out a build or team build, tweak it and try again, alot like MTG it keeps you playing for a lot longer than say a game like SWTOR which basicly has zero character build depth. Whats funny is, gw1 is basically a terrible mmo, but the character system makes all the difference.

This is also a big reason people love Rift, me included, you can tweak on your character make small choices and see how they fair, its makes you want to go back into the world just to see, it also creates a deeper team strategy and dynamic.

I dont doubt this game will be grindy, and typical with the questing format/trinity but the setting along with the character depth possibilties, are way more than enough for me.

GW2 looks amazing at this point, it offers some of this type of metagaming aswell, along with whats been revealed I can see someone passing on TSW for GW2 at this point, for me I will try both, but no way I'm going lifetime or overbaord on the digital items, so far TSW just doesn't warrant that imo.

You know what? That's exactly what came to my mind aswell. The final straw was that they are offering a lifetime sub for 200€ extra, which is around year and a half subscriptions.

This game will be converting to AoC-like freemium service in less than 2 years.

Went with Lifetime on TSW.

Been hyping this game for ages and the theme is something really rare in MMORPGs. I have to admit that the 250€'s is really big investment in a game there's not that much information around of. But I want to support Funcom and their efforts in bringing old school MMORPGs that have real degree of character development and challenge.

There's really no rational reason to go with the lifetime to be honest. I just went with my hype and gut feeling. Might've been a really bad investment or a good one, time will tell o/

I think of it as supporting european game developers! 8)
