And a new sever opened, despite the fact that nobody's being queued or screaming. I'd have to guess their numbers are very significantly up to do that without any pressure.

If you can read this, you're on a board populated by misogynist assholes.

Every time I've logged in recently, Arcadia has been listed as "Full" and I peeked at my buddy's login screen who has 3 characters on different servers and they were all listed as full as well. I have no idea what kind of numbers that translates into, but a guess based on that evidence is "pretty good." Based on the fact there have been no login queues and no real server donwtime, I'd qualify that by saying "but not crushingly awesome."

Yeah it's really starting to get annoying now. Latest update on it:
Quote from: Morteia
Hey Everyone!

I'm popping in here just to reassure you that this a high priority issue that the team is currently investigating and attempting to fix. I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that new ideas are being testing and worked on as I type, and the team is not losing focus on this issue. While we have attempted to fix this problem multiple times (and sadly unsuccessfully), we will not stop trying until it's fixed.

Please don't think that your words and posts go unheeded! You have all been so wonderfully patient and understanding about the many chat issues, and we have nothing but thanks for you in regards to that.

The latest update I have is that this chat issue won't be addressed in the upcoming patch (1.0.3), but is most likely going to be fixed in 1.1. I will get confirmation on this for you guys tomorrow so that you have verified information.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding. It really does mean quite a bit to know that the community is so supportive! We also understand your need for these channels to work, and totally want this issue fixed yesterday too. :P

So it should be fixed in a week  why so serious?

Fluffy version of it.

NEW MISSIONS!

Carter Unleashed: An action mission set at the Innsmouth Academy on Solomon Island, where the player gets to know more about the exceptionally gifted student Carter. Exploring the hallway below the academy, Carter will need help controlling her powers -- before they get completely out of hand.

Crime and Punishment: Bestselling horror author Sam Krieg came to Solomon Island to write his latest novel -- but there's more to it than that. Through this investigation, the player will dig into Krieg's works and the mind of an obsessed fan to learn more about the dark and hidden history of Solomon Island.

Hell & Bach: Daredevil reporter Daniel Bach is working on the story of all stories, his shot at finally winning a Pulitzer. For years, he's been chasing the ghost of Theodore Wicker, only to end up trapped at the Overlook Motel outside Kingsmouth Town. But Wicker's story doesn't end here -- nor did it start here. Following the bread crumbs back in time, the player will investigate the mystery of Wicker, and learn more about what brought him to the gates of hell...and beyond.

Funeral Crasher: Eleanor Franklin only has her cats and her ghosts to keep her company at her mansion in Blue Mountain -- and now the ghosts are getting restless. When the dead themselves are spooked, the living must pay heed.

The 3rd Age: There have been Ages before ours, and the evidence lies beneath. In Egypt, the sand is thin, and the remnants of past Ages are beginning to spread their influence across the world. The Seven Sentinels hold the key to an investigation that begins in the present, and delves deep into the distant past.

Red Handed: It wasn't chance that brought Dr Varias to this distant part of the Carpathians at this particular point in time. Following in his father's footsteps, Varias is attempting to unravel the mystery of the Red Hand. Why did they build a vast facility beneath this desolate region? What were they doing here? And how was Varias' father involved? In this investigation, we answer some burning questions about this secret Soviet era genetic research project -- and how it ties into the events of the present.
 
But that's not all! Another mission awaits observant players on Solomon Island -- one that explores a character that may be more than she pretends to be...
 
 
NEW NIGHTMARE MODE DUNGEONS!

Two dungeons are receiving new Nightmare modes: The Ankh and Hell Fallen.
 
Increased challenges, increased rewards, and a chance to test new builds, new synergies and to put your team to the test against some of the toughest and fiercest challenges in The Secret World!
 
Who will be the first to conquer The Ankh and Hell Fallen in Nightmare mode? When 'Unleashed' is unleashed, we will find out!
 
 
THE MARKETPLACE!

Unleashed also contains the brand new, cross-dimensional Marketplace, allowing players to sell, trade and ship items to other players, no matter where they're playing. The Marketplace will be an integral part of The Secret World's growing economy, giving players more flexibility when it comes to how they equip their characters, and how they procure PAX.
 
 
AND MORE!

Of course, issue #1 is jam-packed with other updates and changes -- and astute players may even notice the ongoing construction in New York, London and Seoul, as new tenants prepare to move in. The Secret World is a LIVING world, and it will keep growing and changing through this issue and all upcoming, monthly issues.
 
And this is only the beginning. Issue #2 is already on its way, and if you like this month's content, you're going to LOVE what's next! Dr Aldini is sharpening his scalpels, the Ockham triplets are readying their scissors and razors, and the first auxiliary weapon is being assembled -- so stay tuned for August's major update, to be revealed soon!
 
The Secret World issue #1: 'Unleashed' goes live on July 31st, and is available for free to all players.

I give myself about 30 minutes. If I can get anywhere in 30 minutes usually I am hooked and in love with it. If I get nowhere, it's spoiler time and I feel a bit bad but whatever GIMME XP NAO!

I completed a few investigations by myself and I felt awesome. Most recent, Angels & Demons in Egypt. Made me feel like I am good at this stuff (I am not).

The cipher part is fun, for me. But having to retype long blocks of text from the game window into a text editor is just an unnecessary waste of everyone's time. It wouldn't have killed anyone to put in a "copy to clipboard" button. That's where I break down and just google for "pastebin quest name" even at the risk of catching spoilers. Because fuck that.

Worst offender: Signal Effect in Egypt. Which, I think, has the icon for a minor mission although it's a one-time mission mostly about decoding stuff. That one has giant walls of code.

Just a warning, Hell and Bach appears to have a few bugs. There's a minor spelling mistake in the book in tier 1 and the tier 3 puzzle sequence seems to be borked right at the end. I'm putting in the right sequence but it's not accepting it...

Edit: Ok, figured out what the problem was...

Worst offender: Signal Effect in Egypt. Which, I think, has the icon for a minor mission although it's a one-time mission mostly about decoding stuff. That one has giant walls of code.

Yeah, fuck that mission.  It is really an investigation mission and I believe gives XP to that effect.  But the amount of code you'd have to type in an external browser is just silly.  That's the only mission I've had a problem with though, at least so far.

Personally my threshold for the investigation missions where I'll look up what to do, is if I know *how* to do it but don't feel like doing the grunt work - like the

My way of solving investigation missions is trying for about five minutes before asking Ingmar "HOW U DO." Although now that we're playing together, I am actually more patient with figuring shit out. I don't figure much out, of course, I'm mostly just there for moral support for Ingmar.

The morse code one bugged me because it said go find parts, so I looked up the model number of the thing on the fake website, and wrote down the parts required to repair, and found those parts.

No, you have to collect all the shit even stuff you don't need, and just click the thingy. Overthinking investigation quests for the lose :(
