Why progress has been a bit slow lately

Hello everyone.

I just wanted to take some time to explain the lack of updates on this website. The following explanations only concern me, Vikestart, and not others on the team such as Vomher (whose recent inactivty is due to different reasons than mine).

The rate of new guides being published dropped a couple of months ago, and has been steadily declining ever since then. As of right now it has been 3 weeks since the latest guide was published.

For me, the reason for this is simply the state of the game. There is no incentive to log in and play the game anymore. The game was relaunced almost 6 months ago, and as of now it still has LESS content than the original game. It has fewer dungeons, fewer raids, fewer missions and I dare say even fewer features (barbershop, surgeon, etc.). It was already hard to find the motivation to keep playing in TSW due to the slow content update schedule, but now we have to make do with even less. I'm not pointing out these things to assign blame or point fingers, but to explain why things are the way they are and what that means for me personally.

But there was an official roadmap, so didn't you already know this?

That is true. I did. And I think Funcom has done a fantastic job at following up on their own roadmap. But the problem is that I boarded the infamous "hypetrain" after the relaunch was announced. I participated in the beta and I was generally optimistic about the whole deal. I set my expecations way higher than I should have only to face major disappointment (which is totally my own fault). I thought I could stay interested throughout this waiting period, but that's not how it turned out. Couple that with a very demanding full-time job, I do not have the energy to work on a project when the very foundation of what got me started on this project is gone: my interest in the game.

I'm not quitting the game, I'm just taking a break. I am eagerly awaiting the brand new content that is supposed to come out early next year, which include the Agent System, Dark Agartha and the story continuation (with its new playfield). I will most likely become more active when that is released, and with that I will probably start working on this website more frequently and consistently again.

What does this mean for the website?

New features and sections will not be developed right now, non-critical bugs may not be fixed and new guides will come at a relatively slow pace. Vomher has promised to deliver new guides as soon as possible, including event guides, but those guides will be limited to the sections and features available right now. On the whole, the total stream of new guides will be slower.

I do hope to return in the first quarter of 2018 if the new content lives up to expecations. If I do, the developement of this website will ramp up again and new sections will be opened up.
