That's a great deal for an excellent game.

Meh  I am really tempted to buy this game.

But I am not sure if my laptop will run it.

Is there a way to get a trial key or something?

Buddy program or something like it?

There is a very low details graphics setting for old machines... check the minimum specs

if you buy this game to log in and jump into pvp you are buying the wrong game

 

can you do it? theorically yes but you will hate the game

 

People need to understand that games and MMORPG have a way to be played and sometimes that way may not be your way

This MMORPG was made to be played in a certain way and if you play it in that way it shines and open up a lot of possibilies and freedom thanks to those initial boundery

 

those boundery are not set in stone by the devs you can log in and jump into pvp they let you "free" to do it but just because you are free to do it doesn't mean is the best way to play it.

 

people nowday totally have no clue about the meaning of "freedom" they pretend everything is the same and for them freedom means i can do everything and everything will give me the best result and will be fun and easy and all is the same.... but is not and it shouldn't be

 

the secret world has a way to be played that will make you really love the game and this way start with a PVE path. You may not like it then buy another game.

Once you accomplished the PVE path it open up to 2 path a more challenging PVE path (nightmare mode) or an equally challenging PVP one.

if you start nightmare in full purple QL10 (max lvl of ur gear after the PVE path) it will be an exercise of frustration you will not be able to end succesfull any of them untill u gear up it will be slow (unless u have friend in QL10.4 purple to help you but that is not the way the game was made for)

and if u do PVP you will lose as you will lose in NM you will get a little reward as u get a little reward doing NM not sucessfully...

 

and you will learn and get better and open up more of the 525 skill.... and keep changing ur built from DPS to tank to Healer... the game will really make you free.

 

but you ACHIEVE your freedom you dont log in and are "FREE" yeah theorically you are free... but if you join PVP in QL1 it wont be fun or easy to lvl up it wont be as enjoyable and amazing as following the very well written story!

Remember, Steam Summer Sale is about a month away or so, iirc. I bet TSW will hit 75% off a some point. Steam Sales, greatest gift to PC gaming. I recently got the Witcher and Witcher 2 for $10.18 after tax.

I'd buy it when you can for cheap. I bought it back when it was just turning F2P, I honestly enjoy playing the game. Considering I have several MMO's installed on my computer, I still keep this one on my computer and play it regularly.

I'm just going off what I read on the forum, mediocre PVP is still what exists in this game from many post I've read, and I don't doubt it. I remember it being pretty mediocre in beta.

 

Not everyone cares about storys, quests or pve :)

tell me one game forum where i go and i read everybody talking good stuff about pvp in that game....

NONE even EVE has his whiners!

 

true is:

PVP is good

people is mediocre

it does result in mediocre PVP but because of people.

 

If you make a sligthly complicated pvp lot of player will straggle and will whine like babies saying they cannot win... and so pvp sux

 

 

PVP is not perfect but is very strategic build wise (one of the place where people fail hard) and very group based (let's not start how badly people fail here) one of the more intresting i played since AOC

 

 

http://chronicle.thesecretworld.com/character/Ngoc

this is my character and i did as u can see done quite a lot of pvp and yes the more a pvp is "difficult" the bigger the gap will be between beginners and veteran so if beeing destroyed as beginner by a group of veteran is sign of "mediocre PVP" again i blame people not the PVP in itself

 

you can only judge the pvp when u are part of the Veterans and play vs other Veterans... then you really see pvp shine

 

the real problem in TSW is mixing the Veteran with the Beginners and yes that is a real big sucky problem and i blame it all on funcom but the PVP when it really happen it's one of the finest.
