Kommentare zu "The Secret World: Vorläufige Patchnotes für Update 1.2 [Update]"

Sieht ja für den ersten Stand garnicht schlecht aus, aber da fehlt noch eine Menge schätze ich 😉 Wir haben ja aber auch erst Anfang des Monats also einfach die Spannung steigen lassen und auf die neuen Inhalte am Ende des Monats freuen 🙂

Die neue Liste gefällt mir schon sehr gut bin mal gespannt auf die Sachen in Fusang, hoffe das sie wirklich sinnvolle Missionen rein gemacht haben und das System verbessert haben weil einfach mit 10 Minuten verteidigen ist es meiner Meinung nach nicht getan. Finde man könnte so viel schöne Sachen machen wie die Verteidigung der Festung hoch setzten wenn man Missionen erfüllt und dadurch den Wert des Buffs steigern. Und man sollte die Innere erst einnehmen können wenn man alle Äußeren hält und die sollte dann für gehaltene Zeit zusätzlich Punkte gewähren.

Also freuen wir uns einmal kurz vor Mitte des Monats und nochmal gegen Ende des Monats :)..

Ja da hast du recht ThomThom 🙂
