The in-game web browser currently fails to load various websites that can be important to Secret World Legends players, many of which are Funcom sites such as
forums.funcom.com and consequently the SWL forums,
funcom.com, etc. The TSW forums can load in the browser when using HTTP (
http://forums.thesecretworld.com), but it looks pretty mangled, like a site that can barely load at all.
It seems that the failing websites use HTTPS so far, at least from those that I’ve tested.
Not all using HTTPS fail to load though!
leaderboards.secretworldlegends.com works!!! Which is nice if you want to check your stats after a nice round of sweet, sweet murder ;D! Google works, of course, as well, as do a few other websites a SWL player may use as resources! Just… very few of the Funcom ones!
secretworldlegends.com is the homepage we go to every time we open the browser in-game as well as the site that the Daily Login Rewards links news from, it currently failing to display and instead giving us an empty page is a tad awkward.
I wasn’t sure if this was reported yet, but since the Secret World Legends website and the in-game browser don’t agree anymore, I thought at the very least it should be brought up. It would be nice to hit ‘B’ or check the news in-game and not see an empty, sad slate as the very first thing!
