Judging the Secret World’s Future by the Past

It’s a pretty grim time to be a fan of The Secret World. The other day I logged on for the first time in a while, and the game was just dead. Agartha was a ghost town. No one was talking in chat.

Not with a bang, but a whimperAnd this is just a few weeks after the announcement of Secret World Legends. Clearly TSW is not long for this world now.

One way or another, the future lies with Legends. For my latest article at MMO Bro, I look at previous relaunches of MMORPGs in an attempt to understand what might await TSW’s successor. The conclusions are less than comforting.

New Banner, New Article

Given recent events, I didn’t really like having so many references to The Secret World in my blog’s banner. Too many unhappy memories. Plus I’m probably way overdue for a new banner anyway.

So, yeah, new banner. Whatcha think? It’s a lot simpler than the last one, partly out of a desire to do something different and partly due to my lackluster photo manipulation skills.

Try not to read anything into the fact this is the first time in my blog’s history the banner hasn’t referenced an MMO in some way.

Feedback welcomed. I’m not married to it and could always come up with something else if people don’t like it.

In other news, I’ve had another new article published at MMO Bro. This one deals with character stats and whether they’re actually serving any purpose. It’s a long-standing pet peeve of mine.
