Valentine’s Loyalty!

Earlier today, Funcom announced that the TSW servers would be going down tomorrow.

Then, Massively OP broke the news that we’re getting two sets of content tomorrow at the same time!

The first news is that the Valentine’s content will be unlocked again for this weekend. This will presumably include party bags from previous years, some of the special items in the store for your significant other, and perhaps a few other things scattered around. We’ve yet to hear if there will be any new content, or if it will just be the old content. We’ll let you know as we hear it.

More interestingly, and much more awesomely, the new membership benefits will be introduced tomorrow. We’ve covered these in detail in other posts and on the podcast, so we’re not going to cover them again here, but everything we’ve been waiting for since it was announced a week and a half ago is almost here!

Loyalty Rewards

Get ready, because once the servers are back up, it’s the season of love, permanent banks, hoverboards, and other shiny stuff!

Jingi’s Sunday TSW Column #2

Hello again! Jingi here. It’s Super Sunday TSW FILTH BALL. WOO! GO BEES. TOUCHDOWN. BINGO BINGO BINGO. I mean, what?

Oh, right.

This week has been a steady week for The Secret World and its inhabitants. Thankfully (and hopefully) it has been a good week for everyone. Should be a short column today!

ALSO. Be on the look out for the Secret Podcast’s newest Episode 43 coming out soon!

In this week’s column I will go over a few things, namely (a) Beyond the Veil Podcast Episode 173, (b) In-Game Events & Contests, and (c) The Secret World Updates.


Unfortunately Antida had to work a double shift on this week’s episode so it was Xander, Azagathor, DarkGryph, Jagour, Distance and myself.

The show was delightful which highlighted the Beyond the Veil contest winners and entrants, PvP time with Jagour, and Distance’s new plan for a TSW phone application!

Throughout the show we read off why people loved to watch Beyond the veil and it was a heartwarming read. Seriously. We love you guys so much for listening in.

Our very own community member Distance is forming a team that will try to make a phone app that aims to connect people more to the game. Want to connect to a TSW chat in-game while you’re away from home or your computer? That’s what he and his team are trying to do.

More information will come to light, as the team and project are in its infancy. Look out for more, and as always if you would like to help out with this project – please message Distance (his in-game name) as well as his twitter @TSW_Distance.

Jagour also highlighted in Shambala along with the BtV panel on the pros and cons of the PvP Mini-Game. Overall – it’s a great time! Just perhaps a little grindy.


Next up – This Sunday Lunar New Year’s Party – Seollal hosted by Happy Tentacle Radio & DJ Drina! It was a fantastic time. Over 86 people showed up to hang out and partake in Drina’s various contests!

Several prizes were donated to make this party happen – and we thank the community and Drina for coordinating such an awesome party! Stay tuned for next year’s Seollal and it’s bound to be bigger!

I myself had a lot of fun with the TMLTrivia and caption contests.

Congratulations to all the winners! (Especially Gabe for winning Milee’s Art! Super Jealous).

Also – Are you wanting to be more involved in the community? Do you want to run your own contests or parties but don’t know how? Feel free to message me @Djinngi! I will soon be starting up a small community project that will be devoted into helping people make our TSW community a fun & better place to be!


Finally, the Secret World updated!

  • This week they fixed the Gold Morphsuit. The suit was unavailable for account wide purchase and it has returned to be on sale.
  • A notice that Membership Rewards are coming very SOON. ™.
  • You still have TWO days to purchase the Grand Master pack if you haven’t – they will be going away on February 9th, 2016.
  • TSW is matching the Steam Sale that is ending on February 12th, 2016. 66% off on the game and Ultimate Edition!
  • Stay tuned for the Streaming ones possibly next week! I have a feeling they might give more a preview to the Valentine’s event coming up as well as more insider to Issue 14. But that’s just my hope. 🙂

For all those tuning in, thank you! Stay tuned for Next Sunday’s Column. If you have any updates you would like to give The Secret Podcast or myself, please send me a message at GinSynrio@Gmail.com or over twitter at @Djinngi.
