Hopefully,the issue will be fixed soon, and you will be chosen to represent whichever faction you choose. Just so you know, the Templars will best you, that’s all we’re saying.

Funcom has said it will implement a traditional sub model with The Secret World when it ships next spring. According to a post on the official forums, community manager Oliver “Tarib” Kunz said it will contain microtransactions and a cash shop. Kunz said this will squelch a “pay-to-win” scene as it will limit store items to convenience and clothing and items. “Character power in The Secret World will be determined by how well you play the game, not how much money you are willing to put into it,” Kunz said. Beta sign ups for The Secret World start today, and according to the countdown clock – at least on this end – it will start taking registrations in about three hours. Thanks, Massively.
