i heard somewhere how it is possible that there will be 7 years worth of content with this mmo.
Im hooked on Secret world in the same way i was for Old School mmos. There is something so good about the simplicity of the weapon and ability system and the ability wheel in general.
First of all funcom has given us access to 9 different weapon classes, with x amount of abilities for each class.
The way the wheel is designed, and the fact that each type of wepaon class is very simple, means that in fact they could go on adding new types of weapons within each class ongoing ? Like for example with guns, there is 3 different choices, but if funcom elaborated and added ongoing new weapons with in each type of weapon (guns/melle/magic) it shouldnt be too much of an issue seeing as everyone has the chance to learn every ability, every weapon, every skill point, the same way as everyone else.
Think of this point;
Because everyone gets the chance to learn every alternative on just one character, there is no need to worry ever about inballanced classes , because everyone gets to learn any of the skills, weapons or abilities too.
This means in general funcom could just keep on dding new weapons within each class, and it wouldnt affect balance issues for the reason i talked off in the last paragraph.
The more wepaons, abilities and skill points, the better for the mmo, if they add new weapons, abilites and skill ponits, then everyone has even more mmo to play.
This could in fact be the first of the non wow type mmo weve seen for years now. This mmo has the potential to keep us hooked for years, if funcom add more weapons, skills and abilities because everyone, gets the chance on the one character to learn more weapons and gain more abilities and skills
I think it would be quite easy to make the skill wheel much larger, even the skill points are made in such a way that they could in fact add more than the current damage and survivability oiptions per weapon/talisman sets.
It could in theory go on forever.
Surely this mmo has the potential to keep all of us playing because each of us are able to purchase alll the skill points, all the weapons, and all the abilities. We can all choose to learn every option within this game, on one character, exactly the same as the rest of the people playing.
This set up could be the answer to keep us all playing this mmo for years, just as we used to do when SOE were famous
Please discuss amoungst yourself what you think of these thoughts. I am very excited to play the game on release. There is just something so right about this mmo
