The MMO World's Best-Kept Secret

Server Stability

Illuminati vs spectres

Banish restless spirits.

Other than the server being brought down for routine maintenance or patches, I have never experienced any unexpected outages or funky lag problems in The Secret World. As is to be expected, latency for me is a lot higher for me as an Australian player than it would be for players connecting from the United States, but the fact that the combat is only partially real-time means that I'm not at too much of a disadvantage—even in PVP. Unfortunately, the The Secret World does not have a trial version, so you cannot test whether the latency is going to be too much for you until you front the cash for a copy of your own. For that reason, I would advise that anyone thinking about buying the game should closely inspect the system requirements, and perhaps ping Funcom's servers as well.
