It's worth it just to experience the first two zones.

Not much of an MMO TBH, most things are soloable as long as you build something with self-heals.

i tend to get really bored of any online game without a friend.

For $15 I'd say it's definitely worth it if you have someone to play with. The setting is very cool. As for population I haven't played in awhile so have nfi what it's like.

Bit of a broken record in this thread, but yeh, the game is still alive.

The last few weeks have had more people on than I've seen since launch. Our guild channel regularly had over 200 ppl online and there were typically half a dozen ~100 person open world anniversary event raids going during the "off peak" times when I play. This will no doubt drop off dramatically now the anniversary event is finishing - but there are still plenty of people around and new content is still being released in the lead up to the Tokyo expansion.

I haven't played in months either, but $15 with no subscription... my oath it's worth it.

Bought it for the $15. Was keen on release but reviews pegged it as unfinished and then it never took off. So now that it's a year mature and purchase to play I'm all over it. Will play when not WoWing.

Only if you have someone to play with. The PUG/community ruins the game for you so a lot of people turn social features/chat off (which defeats the point of joining a server community/MMOG)

But most of the game can be solo'd/duo'd.

Question Secret Society Syndicate

Hi OCAU TSWers,

Is there a group of OCAU folk playing TSW who band together to take on Dungeons, Scenarios, and other solo-killing objectives?

I enjoy TSW, I came into it late I guess so not many bugs left to annoy.
I have mid level Agents in all three Secret Societies, and usually play with a small band of friends (3-4) but one has the keyboard skills and geographical awareness of a toddler and one of the others has just become unreliable in getting together for group stuff. We mostly do PvE when there is 2-3 of us, but if we could top up to five for the hard stuff that would be very helpful. PUG is... undesirable compared to other options, such as fellow OCAU TSWers, but hasn't been too bad in TSW as yet.

So are there some cross-society OCAU Agent lists in existence? Would there be interest in having one if there isn't one already? Do many still play after its been out so long?

Thanks, Niekell.

Default TSW Lives On

Hi newtosystems,

> Anyone here still play this game?
Yes sir, yes I do. Not as often as I did but still fortnightly regularly if not more often on an ad-hoc basis. I'm online with a couple of friends each fortnight on Monday evenings ACDT.

> Just jumped on it as they had a massive sale on.
> SO far so good.
TSW is great. Lots of good people in the community.
Imo the writing is excellent, the lore intriguing, and the mechanics sound.

If you want company at any point in the evenings send me a personal message and I'll give you more contact details. I enjoy helping out where I can, but have yet to get to some end game content.

Best wishes, niekell.

I quite enjoy all the early content and don't mind running it again in a backseat support role (healing when needed otherwise leaving it up to you). If you want a third to tag along let me know. TSW still hasn't lost it's shine. Besides there is all that finicky Museum Bestiary Lore to locate all over the place now. Ugh a lot of backtracking anyway, so may as well do it with others who are doing the content for the first time.
