Sarcan and I host our guides and FAQs for The Secret World here because it's really tedious to write and maintain long guides and FAQs inside of forums. Also, this wiki engine offers a built-in Google Translate feature for every page, which can be helpful for TSW's wide international audience. Also, most of the bigger game wikis and guide sites are full of annoying advertising spam, and the wikis can be especially hostile to posting guidance and advice. Here, we can keep everything updated nicely, no one can revert or delete our stuff, and one link from forums will always point to the latest and greatest. Also, this wiki engine renders nicely iPad-friendly websites.
So enjoy what you find under our two respective Guides/FAQs menus, and keep checking this home page regularly for notices about new updates and changes.
BTW, the traffic to this site is not monetized in any way, and you are not subjected to any advertising. This information resource is just a labor of love.
Yokai - I've given up on TSW - 05 Nov 2012 22:47
Sorry folks, but after a long period of waiting for Funcom to fix the major issues that put up an effective brick wall for casual players and casual guilds, AND trying to rationally argue for some changes that would improve the picture for casual players and casual guilds in the more frank discussions in the TestLive forums, I have given up on Funcom, Joel and crew, and TSW. I won't be making further updates to my side of this site. I won't be "catching up" my content and making it current when Funcom "finally gives me a reason to come back by restoring my faith in this game and in Funcom's stewardship of this game".
Because I won't be coming back. I've grown tired of vague promises of making things better from the devs, who to their credit at least try to dialog with their community and who I know are indeed trying to do their best with limited resources. But I have been stepped on too many times now by their ham-handed forum mods who cannot even be arsed to fix a 3-month old bug with their forum software that prevented me from receiving all PMs since live launch, and by their wholesale deletions of reasoned arguments of mine that involved ZERO personal attack or disrespect against anyone.
Best of luck to Funcom and crew, and best of luck to the player community. It was a great idea. But Arenanet has "drank your milkshake" and with good reason. GW2 has kept my rapt attention for more than 2 months now with no sign of abating, and the same goes for the majority of my guild. The sheer amount of things to do and see in GW2 is nothing short of amazing for the genre. - Comments: 0
