The name of issue three was released with the announcement last week that Joel Bylos had taken over as the Game Director for The Secret World. Little else is known about The Cat God.

UPDATE: The official update notes and a description of the contents of The Cat God have arrived on The Secret World's site.

    Reading about Issue 3 made my morning image TSW has a solid foundation to build upon and if FC manages to develop the game on frequent basis it can have a long and nice life.

    Sadly I can not afford to pay the sub and play this game.  It is sad as I enjoyed this game tremendously.  I am glad to see they are keeping up with the monthly updates and I am hoping to one day come back.

    Damn I love this game. So happy they kept the promise of picking up again on the monthly update schedule. keep on rockin´FC

    The last patch that came only one week ago brought so many problems, and Funcom doesn't care and simply releases an untested patch just to keep true to their monthly updates.

    It's FailCom all over again.

    The very definition of "damned if you do, damned if you don't".

    Looking forward to patching when I get home in a few hours.

    No it didn't.  it blocked use of one skill as it was being used to expliot.  Nvidia gfx users had BSoD issues, rolling back the drivers to the previous sorts that.  There is a fix for that today.  There was alos I hotfix inbetween these patches.

    Stop over inflating issues and calling FC a pretty nasty word tbh.   TSW is a great game.

    Rubberbanding, lags and latencies skyrocketing has nothing to do with RnS or nVidia drivers. Bosses still being bugged and unbalanced has aswell nothing to do with it. Gearmanager still not working properly, LFG has no options to search as a group to fill up spots, etc etc etc...

    Sorry to say, but closing your eyes doesn't make these problems go away.

    EDIT: Patchnotes are up... a whopping two new quests made it into this patch, and they eventually fixed RnS to work as intended (I mind you, three month after it was first reported!).
    No word about rubberbanding, lag-spikes or server-disconnects due to high latnecies tho.

    They didn't affect as many people as you make out.  As usual the vocal minority went mental in particular when R&S skill was disabled essentialy to avoid explioting.

    Many peop0le including myself had no issues at all.  The NVidia GFX BSoD issue was compounded when Nvidia realsed new drivers the day before the patch was released and people upgraded.

    What has RnS or nVidia drivers to do with severe lags, rubberbanding and disconnects? And what has it to do with bugs or broken gamemechanics?

    Again, the biggest issues currently are lags, rubberbanding, disconnects (caused by high latenicies) and the bugs in nightmares (e.g. bosses not working as intended).

    Are they?  I haven't seen those mentioned a great deal at all tbh, don't know anyone with those issues in our Cabal.  Again vocal minority over stating the issues.

    Nice with the new updates!

    My wife and me are not done with the launch content by far yet, but it's good to see that they keep to the schedule. I suspected that they would mostly follow AoC and go for every six weeks after the last delay. I certanly didn't expect that this update would be on schedule!

    As for the rubberbanding, I didn't even know about that until I saw the other poster here. Neither my wife and me have seen any of that.

    This is a great surprise considering the last update was just around a week ago.  Nice job TSW, looks like your back on track with the updates!  No latency or disconnect issues here!
