#IAMTSW Contest

IAMTSW#IAMTSW is a way for us, as a community, to recognize the great players that comprise The Secret World player base. In addition to giving away cool prizes, we’re also showing the world what you can create- be it an audio file, cosplay, PvP, RP, and more. We have tried to represent every component of the community, and are confident that the creations we are about to see will not only showcase the game, but also the sheer skill of our players. If you don’t see a specific contest for your needs/wants, give it a week. We gave you some clues about the types of contests we will be running, and the first week starts us off by having you “speak.

Game Director Letter – March 2015

joel-bylos-gm-letter-feb14Hi guys,

I’ve just returned from my whirlwind visit to the US office (and a quick trip to Canada) and I am jetlagged. Still, the nice unicorn that I sat next to on the plane after taking my Ambien gave me some very good tips on Illuminati brain control techniques, so that is a bonus.

More on the trip later in the letter, but first I want to talk a little bit more about the Enhanced Player Experience (I wanted to call it the Enhanced Player Elite Enjoyment Nirvana or EPEEN, but I was shot down by wiser voices).

Game Director Letter – February 2015

joel-bylos-gm-letter-feb14“Hi guys!
For the past few weeks we’ve been splitting our time between the player experience revamp and Issue #11.

The revamped experience has expanded slightly in scope by improving the tutorials in the beginning and smoothing out the difficulty curve. When we go back and change things, we also find other ways of improving the early game experience.

There is a fairly long laundry list of changes, but I will attempt to summarize most of the important ones here.”
