    So the press NDA lift won't be today?

  • TimukasTimukas TallinnPosts: 693Member

    Excellent news because I really prefer this game coming out as polished as possible. Also, June release suits me personally way better.

    Would have been a good idea following the gaming eclipse of information that was yesterday about all the delicious GW2 info.

    Lolipops !

    Aaaw :-(

    Ah well, I already thought it was getting close to the former release planning of April. Still waiting for my beta access to trigger :)
  • VenedVened WarszawaPosts: 70Member

    2 months more = more polish. And its good for TSW.

    "Among the beta testers surveyed, almost 9 out of 10 say they will play the game at launch."

    Good score.

    We all want to know if its worthy, best way to play the beta ;)

    damn I was looking forward to an April release. But if this means more polish and less bugs, its all good.

    I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means - except by getting off his back.

    Been waiting for this news too. I know it's 2 months longer than expected, but I'm not going to jump on the bandwagon of "more time to polish" the game as some posters above already have. This is Funcom. Furthermore, this is an MMO. If you start the whole "polish" argument, then you're just setting yourself up to join the "miracle patch" boat when the beta is tanking and it's 1 week to release.

    Lets just watch this one with cautious optimism instead.

    Nice, I have been waiting to give this title a shot.

    Finally a release date....now I can add another 6 - 8 months to that for when it goes F2P.

    I'm already subbed for one game (RIFT) and so wasn't interested in SWTOR...can hold out for GW2 for its "buy to play" model but not too sure if TSW is good enough to dig deep and pay up.

     

    Or am I over-reacting?

    I have no idea... What was your point?

  • nethstarnethstar LondonPosts: 24Member

    none really...just thinking out loud.

  • GwahlurGwahlur BergenPosts: 198Member Uncommon

    heh k... sorry, i just didn't really catch what you were asking about.

     

    you seem to be happy with playing rift though, or what are you saying? you can wait for gw2 since it's b2p, but won't wait for tsw since it's p2p? it's gonna come out if you wait for it or not though...

    so i guess just wait and see?

  • chopgrchopgr AthensPosts: 179Member

    That is good new.

     

    I'm definitelly buying the game.

    And under the ashes of infinity,
    Hope, scarred and bleeding,

    I'm willing tyo give Funcom another chance.

    HOWEVER I don't ever buy into the " more time to polish " crap either.

    1) You don't know at what stage of development the game is in.

    2) Many mmo's have been pushed back several times only to release, a very un-done game.

     

    Now I have to find another mmo to play because I was counting on April.

    -5 points for The Secret World !!!

  • GorillaGorilla Posts: 2,202Member Uncommon

    Yeah "more time to polish" is marketing speak for still to buggy to ship. Of course so many companies use it as a 'reason' it has become a cliche.

  • BenjolaBenjola RotterdamPosts: 667Member

    I'm not buying/pre-ordering MMOs without trying them anymore so it's a good thing that there will be an open beta.

    OBs have become a standard in last few years and that's a good thing.

    Funcom has always been inovative but I remember AoC launch :)

    As for the release date, since I don't play anything atm I was hoping for April launch but oh well, I'll survive until late June without MMOing np.

    I care about your gaming 'problems' and teenage anxieties, just not today.

  • mudd4evermudd4ever Boston, MAPosts: 158Member

    So I was looking forward to this launching in April too, but all in all I think this is a good decision by Funcom to push the release date out to June.  Maybe during the recent media-on-hand week, testing out the game, they got some more feedback that the game just isn't quite ready to ship.  This'll give them time to fix it up a bit more, and they may even pick up a first wave of TERA refugees as an added bonus, lol.  I'm not worried about TSW potentially releasing too close to GW2.  Those that are presently interested in both games will continue to do so, and most likely will buy both, with GW2 being B2P w/ no-sub and all.  My personal hype for TSW hasn't decreased, if anything it's even better than before because I really do think Funcom is trying to redeem themselves with this one.  I hope they pull it off.  Only time will tell.

    pie.

    By definition isn't that what "more time to polish" means anyways?  I always saw it that way.

    Bad news for them it means they will be going directly head to head with GW2 release.

    Ah well hopefully we still get good numbers.
