The Secret World's New Game Director

Funcom announces Joel Bylos has taken up the reins as Game Director of The Secret World, their conspiratorial MMORPG. The game suffered recent layoffs which included the game's lead designer, and this post from Ragnar Tørnquist explains Joel's role in the operation as well as how Ragnar is stepping down as the game's senior producer to focus on his role as creative director. "Being given the opportunity to lead the game into a bold, new future is definitely a dream come true for me," says Bylos. "I am very proud of what we as a team have created with ‘The Secret World’, and it is truly a brilliant canvas that will allow us to create more groundbreaking MMO experiences for many years to come. ‘The Secret World’ is only really getting started, and with a game world that draws upon our own, real world, there is no limit to what sort of amazing stories we can tell and fantastic locations we can visit in the upcoming content updates."

Don't believe the "no levels" claim. There is an XP bar along the bottom of your UI. There may be no levels precisely but its still grind>ding>spend points>grind.
No classes? What the smeg are those "decks" then?

Don't believe the "Innovative quests" claim. Yes there are some fantastic (by MMO standards) deliciously different quests. But the bulk of them are gathering, delivering and grinding mobs.
