1. Best theme, story, lore and quests around

2. Because of this trailer:

3. Really fun dungeons with very little trash

4. Super deep deck-based combat system 

5. Overall, a nice/mature community

6. Quests that require use of brain (investigations)

7. Non-combat quests (sabotage)

8. Gear only takes you so far - playing skill and decent decks are necessary

9. Game treats you as if you have an IQ higher than 12

10. Clothing completely separate from gear; complete freedom to make your own look

11. Fun events (going on this weekend)

12. Best Halloween events period.

13. The game is actually challenging, but not over the top difficult

14. Best cut scenes and NPCs, hands down

I am making a list of the problems that destroyed The Secret World. 

This is spelled out exactly in the title and the first post.


you forgot to add one:

1.  Trolls on put an asteriks *not confirmed yet


It's a long, very well disguised, troll, but a troll nonetheless.  Hmm, let's go create a thread called "What Destroyed X" on each forum, and see how long we can go before the mods nab us...  OP, go back to a game you like -- I think we can survive without your "analysis."  ;)

I just logged in again in GW2 and its a breeze of fresh air compared to TSW. Oh, OP, this is another one for your list. The Events/World bosses are NOT enjoyable and only meant as a tool to get you doing lairs.


Because there's absolutely nothing trollish about coming over from the GW2 forums to the TSW forums, creating a thread called "What Killed The Secret World," filling it with a specious list of Things You Don't Like, and then proceeding to list why GW2 is so much better.  ;)

Pardon me ? 

I am not now nor have I ever been a GW2 player. 

Also the "List of specious things" only the first 6 were mine, the rest were culled from comments of people in this thread.

Here's a discussion on XP gains in PvP on the forums, but you'd be doing yourself a disservice by doing nothing but PvP in TSW.  It's got the best storyline around.

And the one thing that is common between all 5 types?  

"Quests that require absolutely zero brain activity from the person sitting at the computer."

See The Secret World for examples of interesting quests.

I do like TSW, but I just can't do the 2-1-1-1-1-1-2-3 combat. It's too bland for me. Other than that the rest of the game is amazing.

You're doing it wrong.

Pistols and fists with the whip aux weapon. Not sure about specific abilities but that would be a fun deck!  :)

Below is a link to a rundown of all the DLCs (Issues 1-4 are now included in the game).  Each issue has some pretty cool content, and Issue 9 adds the new zone in Tokyo.

I hate reading about this game. Just because I have a lifetime sub and if the combat was more enjoyable I would probably be in love :-(. As it is I wander in once in a while but I never quite get really invested in the game. Maybe I should try just Roleplaying or something.

Not sure for you about combat being more enjoyable, by my wish to play TSW has been brutally killed by that one SILLY SINGLE ACTIVE TOOLBAR! Aghrr .. how i hate button mashers in PC world. :-) And unfortunately same will happen to Wildstar in few weeks (will not renew first sub).

But maybe there are not so many that hate that limit as I do.

Make sure to rotate some new abilities in there from your wheel once you get them.  Yeah, number of slots is limited, but you've got over 500 abilities that can go in there -- imagine Wildstar is similar.

Ah the "clunky combat" parrots have once again left their caves and flocked to a TSW article on, even though the article was not asking about this.  Sigh, yes, a nice article.

Play myself?   Nah, though I suppose he's alternate me with some made up stuff in the back of my head about his background and how he came to be a be.  Ex-military, living in Seoul, the Dragon found him -- he's good with his 2nd career.

Weapons.  I definitely like my blade/chaos combo, and have been primarily using it for soloing.  I use shotty/elementalism and this make for a nice dps deck.

Faction.  Dragon all the way, baby.  They know what's up and are probably best equipped to handle it.  Subtle but don't lack for sense of humor.  Great recruiting program too, btw.  ;)

THe game has very good Quests but the worst combat system in history (ok that was a bit harsh :D).


The combat system prevented me to go on in this game.

I feel many people starting with this game feel this way simply because their choices at the start are extremely limited

(since at start you know very low number of active abilities).

This however changes completely as you progress and the ability system is actualy one of the most complex around.

Maybe Funcom should consider giving beginner players bigger AP (ability point) pool at the start so they can get little  more variety from get-go.

But seriously, filling the basic abilities for your first two weapons shouldnt take more then maybe 10 hours of gameplay..

Hmm, I think you may on something here.  At least initially, you are picking only a few abilities to add to the deck and probably aren't doing a heck of a lot with synergy, especially if you aren't using any of the pre-made decks or following any of the deck building advice.  It's very easy to just end up spamming a bunch of (or one or two?) random abilities without understanding how they work together.  

My guess is that frustration sets in before players get a chance to see everything playing together nicely.  It's also VERY easy to think you need only one weapon, since you leave the training HQ with only one.  Better tutorials or guidance at the outset would be useful, and Funcom has shown some interest in doing more of that.

Sweet! Hope you are having fun with the anniversary event.
Similar reasons:

No levels
Reasonable mix of vertical and horizontal progression
Questing that requires thought
Flexibility emphasis over gear focus
Deck system
Fantastic story
It's got character - not your typical bland generic MMO
X-filish atmosphere and theme.
Quick question on embedding videos -- tried adding the shared link in the YouTube Video input but nothing was shown in the post.  Is it still possible to embed videos within posts?  Did a straight link for now, but is there some trick to embedding the snapshot to th vid in the post?

This game has been sitting on the top since it came out, and I've found myself, on more than one occasion, wondering why.

This isn't a post bashing the game, but an honest question from someone who hasn't put any real time into it. I attempted to play it a while back, got about an hour in and wasn't feeling it. I simply didn't give it enough time to really show me much of anything, I suppose, and wrote it off.

But as it sits here, #2 on the list still, I can't help but wonder what it is that I'm missing. What is different here than other games?

Point I'm getting at is that I'm interested again and want a rundown of what awaits me lol. =D

You might want to check out the trailer -- most of it is in-game footage:

An old article, but apparently TSW did not live up to Funcom's expectations:


"Funcom has now said it will concentrate its attentions on "smaller, more focused online games" after confirming its belief that The Secret World will sell less than half what they forecast for launch year, with plans to layoff around half its employees."


Did the game make an amazing comeback?  I'm not that familiar with its history.

[mod edit]

I'm not trolling.  I'm surprised that you have to pay $29.99 to try this game.


I'm not trying to be a dick, I'm just thinking that this is a high barrier to entry for a game that did not perform as expected.


Following the launch of The Secret World on the 3rd of July 2012, Funcom's share price has decreased significantly. The company attributes this mostly to the aggregate review score, the "Metascore", for the game at MetaCritic ( together with other public sources for tracking the performance of games.

While there are very positive reviews, there are as well mixed or average reviews from various press outlets, giving an aggregated score for The Secret World of 72 out of 100, which is to be considered low, and not in line with the positive feedback received during the beta phases from both press and players.

That article is false.

The "real" reason why Funcom´s Stock took a nosedive, is because the then CEO of Funcom illegially dumped his stock just before launch, without announcing it in advance (which he was suppose to do). He is currently still under investigation and facing prosecution.

Another Funcom Stock holder discovered it around launch that the CEO had suddenly dumped his Stock and notified the press and the authorities.

That´s what caused the nosedive of Funcom´s Stock and when all the Financial problems started for them.

The CEO ran off with the Money and the result was that over half the people were laid off after that summer!

All of which has absolutely zero to do with the quality of the game and the devs who are admirably supporting it.
