    I imagine the game does get more fun once you have high leveled multiples of every mod, but it takes a loooong time to get there. Almost all my playtime I was working on the same fucking Excalibur build, playing the game would look like this: Daily login>Grineer gold farm>Orokin Chest farm. Oh yeah, I guess there were challenge missions as well. Was quite happy with the build tho, I just didn't have enough mana to fully support it.

    The space ninjas look like robots.

    Man, I was in a guild with access to pretty much everything too, still was grinding forever.

    I would D1P the shit out of a single player series based on TSW.

    Just hire CD proyekt to do it. They work for polish wages.

    you need just 1 copy of any mod, with extremely rare exceptions you could always work around anyway.

    according to the latest bits of lore, tennos aren't just robots, they're more like evangelions.

    Sounds pretty gay to be honest. Secret World is for storyfags like me I guess. I love tactical depth in combat, but I also like quests that force me to use my brain and learn something new.

    Some mods you'll want to keep at lower levels. But you're right. Beyond those fringe cases, having multiples would really only be good for making the process of trying out different builds across multiple frames marginally smoother.

    I never watched neon genesis. Evangelions are exoskeletons, aren't they? Is there a humanoid person underneath the frame exterior? Is it human?

    Its an action RPG like path of exile. Of course the grind is never over. Its exactly the same for SWL.

    The gameplay loop is very fun tho, unlike this cashgrab.

    Even so, we had a nice run gentlemen.

    Time to close the door and shut the lights on the secret world that never became.

    You say that almost as if TSW wasn't worthwhile ... it may not have realized its absolute fullest potential but come on, there was (and is) some amazing stuff here.

    The story of SW was enjoyable as hell. It definitely would have made a great single player game.
    Shame the MMO elements crap it up. Like a urban fantasy Kingdoms of Amalur.
