Secret World Legends opens new forums, goes into depth on agent system

Secret World nomads rejoice, for you finally have a new home outside of the game. Funcom finally opened up the official forums for Secret World Legends (along with ones for its other titles), giving players a place to chat and find information straight from the developers’ mouths.

Speaking of info, last week’s hour-long dev stream went into greater detail about the upcoming agent system. The online/offline agent system unlocks at level 15 and contains six types of missions to send your roster of minions to complete. Players can collect up to 40 agents in all. There are some complicated mission chains, and subscribers will get one extra mission spot. Funcom said that it will be delivering story content shortly after the agent system comes to the game.

Secret World Legends players and other Funcom fans are eagerly looking forward to Wednesday and a big reveal of the studio’s latest game.

Hrm. So basically FC is moving towards one set of Official Funcom forums with subfora for their various games? What’s going to happen the archives of those current games’ forums? I hope they are preserved – the Anarchy Online forums have nearly two decades worth of stuff including some absolute gems.

Forums governed by incompetent Funcom CM where fanboy circlejerk is allowed and all critic banned. And a really boring mobile game adding another grind layer to already very poor grindy endgame. And you can’t even queue agents from your mobile. Even Mass Effect Andromeda the trainwreck that it was, for all its my face is tired memes, let you queue agents from a mobile app.

Nomads rejoice yeah nah, content drought and incompetent CM exacerbating the problem, SWL is on lifesupport and it will take a miracle to recover.

Steamcharts shows a 20% loss over the past 30 days. They’re under 2015 numbers, now.

Who wants to start a pool for the sunsetting? We’re losing light fast.

To think that this was once the most compelling MMO I had ever played. Makes you doubt stuff.

I wonder if this game is all Funcom hoped for it.

Should we expect the toxic levels to go over 9,000 sooner or later? :P (you know, like pretty much any forum…)

Huh. Their roadmap said late 2017/”early 2018″. I usually read something like that to mean somewhere closer to the later date. Which, for me, would read as somewhere during the first quarter … so Mar-ish 2018.

WoW missions with RIFT microtransaction on top id guess. Lazy stuff for getting more money out of people over content.

Pay to wait systems are apparently pretty damn easy to design and monetize : /
