You've heard the news that while the original TSW servers will still exist for the time being, all supported gameplay by Funcom is being ported over to Secret World Legends (henceforth for ease, being called SWL). While we all might complain and look at all the time we spent chasing kits, augments, and shiny things because we enjoy this game, please consider giving SWL a chance as we will all still be there with a friendly place to enjoy an eldrich MMO.
As for now, we do not know what the new game entails, whether it's an engine update, fix of the horrible, horrible coding, or just because they felt in necessary to re-brand their game as it goes FTP. One good thing is, if you were a grand master before, it will retain over to the new game. And apparently (some/most) cosmetic items will too.
What we do know is this. Omne Datum Optimum was founded in the Beta of TSW, and we will found it again in the Beta of SWL. While we might not all pop on TSW much any more once the new game starts, the Cabal will still be here and you all are still a welcome part of it. Same rules apply, be kind to one another and to others.
In the following weeks once Beta emails start being sent out and characters start being made, we will go ahead on the forums and create a thread for all active members to write down their new character names for SWL. The forums and site will still be here and be used for both games. Even if you only wish to remain playing TSW while it's still around, you will continue to be a part of ODO if you choose.
That being said, the officers are here if you need us and have any questions, either find us in game or PM us on the forums. We'll be happy to also help, should you want to go on completionist errands in TSW in the mean time, or just do crazy runs of things.
We'll do our duty, come what may.
your humble Knights of the Round Table.
tl;dr : new game, old game, don't matter. Same ODO.
