The shame! I must atone by lobbing insults at TOR and/or remind everyone that GW2 is coming to solve all our problems.

Not these days. Very few MMOs are going to be without cash shops. This is becoming the accepted business model and companies will find it hard to justify not having one.

The problem with this system is that eventually people will "google it". Remember the system Asheron's Call had in place with spells? Players were encouraged to discover a new spell or rank using some combinations. The more a spell was used by the playerbase, the weaker it became. This was made to encourage others to keep secret their new spell recipes. Great system, a bit flawed.

What about the Online ARG called Majestic? The puzzles could be found the same way.

I've already seen it in the ARGs(alternate reality game) where people were planning to hack and brute-force into websites. Legitimate websites. I think this hacking into game websites spells lawsuit. People get the clues wrong and land in the clink...

i was super psyched about TSW until I saw the horrid game play lack of customization (you play as one of the preset characters) and uninspired content. Save your money buy Fear 2 because all this is going to be is a bang bang shooter with some mmo elements and the usual smacktard Funcom fan base.

@Dunraven
um where did you get that infor from?
there no preset characters, most seem from those videos are players in beta or the devs themselves playing.

they have gone too much about the customization but be sure there no preset characters...would make joining either three factions dull

@Dunraven I don't know where you got your info but it's wrong. They said they are gonna offer incredible customization, I take it you judge from the 2 gameplay vids they have shown so far?

Yeah not gonna lie.... any 2 out of these three would be fine. All three of them at the same time.... seems a bit much, especially at this age of mmo.

Will have it from beggining , and they won't add only a few of mounts and pets , but there will be more things and new be added regullarly.

If TSW adopt cash shop after 6 years like WoW did it will be ok.
