I was fighting wisps when I noticed a figure dressed in white with a blue beret next to me. I assumed it was another player and fought on valiantly. Then I noticed that the mobs weren’t bothering said player in white. As I killed off the last whisp I moused over the avatar and saw the name. THEN I noticed the red text addressed to me. I didn’t expect it…
I didn’t expect to page a GM and have an actual GM show up in person; I haven’t experienced that since my Ultima Online days. Having a GM show up in game was a nice touch then and it is just as nice now.
I didn’t expect the answer to come so swiftly. There are times in games like Eve Online where I have waited days and even weeks for an answer. But an answer in a few minutes? Wonderful. An answer where all my in game problems where promptly solved?
What amazed me was that as players complained about the same quest that I had just completed with the help of GM Zypah not one of them thought to actually petition the problem. GM Zypah had the power to make it all right again – albeit one player at a time as she admitted. She waited patiently while the two problem quests were fixed. And I should point out that in all this time playing THESE ARE THE ONLY TWO BUG I HAVE EXPERIENCED IN GAME.
So here’s to you GM Zypah and Funcom.
What ever the problems may have been in Funcom in the past they are right on track now. The Secret World is fun, involving and well done. It is refreshing not to deal with elves or bunny rabbits dancing round with toilet paper, of for that matter somebody with a Tech 2 cruiser and a grudge.
See you online (in The Secret World)
