New World posts bug patch, preps transfers, finds its Instagram account hacked

If you’re trying to play New World this morning, you’re going to be stymied, as the game is down for maintenance, but it’s for a good cause: It’s rolling out update 1.0.1.

“While members of our team are working tirelessly on ensuring players can find a server to call their long-term home with the character transfer feature, other members have worked on a few additional quality of life updates and bug fixes to ensure that once players have entered Aeternum they’re able to play and progress as intended,” Amazon says. “We’ve implemented the groundwork for the character server transfer, and you may see elements of that work in the in-game store. We’re continuing to work on this feature, and will have more information on how the system works later this week when we release server transfers.”

So transfers aren’t in yet, what is? Tweaks to turrets, AFK prevention, queue confirmation, and a medium list of bug fixes.

Oh, incidentally, if you’re wondering what’s going on with New World’s instagram, apparently it was “compromised.” The new instagram posts, which now display a game unrelated to New World and have clearly been hacked, insist “there is no such thing as any hacking.” Ouch.

Update
Didn’t quite go to plan and wound up extending the maintenance.

My wish list for New World is:

1. Customizable chat colours.
2. Smoother animation between standing still and fast running.
3. More servers/shorter queues, obvs. Although I do note that it has been getting progressively easier to log in each day. We’re still a long way from perfect, but I do see visible daily improvements in my region.

The discussion around this game in my parts of the internet is getting worse and worse. The hardcore fanbois proclaiming this the PERFECT BESTESTEST MMO EVER are out in force being obnoxious, those saying anyone who likes the game at all is wearing rose-colored glasses and will hate it in a week, those complaining about the server downtime and how bad Amazon’s coding is because they’ve totes looked at the code and this is totes not fairly typical to have extended/delayed maintenance for a MMO shortly after launch, and those still complaining about the ESS JAY DUBS because I guess dropping the “Native American Genocide Simulator” angle and letting players pick a “body type” vs. a sex and choose their pronouns on their character page is just the worst thing ever.

It’s exhausting, let me tell you. I’m just happy to get in the game and dick around harvesting stuff and slowly completing quests and crafting and still having no clue what I’m really doing, but having fun all the same.

Give it time and people will complain about you cutting down wood.

Really tho, it’s not a bad game, it just has some bad designs, but it’s good for what it is. Sadly i’m a idealist, so i always play games suffering for what they could be.

I don’t know, that disclaimer on the instagram pic seems totally legit and convincing

This altaholic wants more character slots!

Unfortunately this wont happen any time soon because its a design failure, rather than a hardware limitation/code limitation.

Players were using alts to completely avoid game systems in place designed to limit players activities so that people couldnt double dip/tripple dip, etc in rewards Ark Im sure has more details they can post about, but the gist is that they dont have a solution to stop people from doing this if they can play alts, so they just outright limit it to 1 character per server.

To be fair you really don’t need more characters on a server since you can do everything on one character.

Having multiples would just encourage EvE levels of spying on other factions which creates a very toxic trust issue.

As a notorious altoholic myself, I have to agree. I made two characters to begin with, one male and one female. The dude was supposed to be a heavy tank type, and the woman a wizard, magic-using type. But after about 15 levels on each one, the lines between them and even within them are so blurred now (because of weapon-based leveling leading character stat allocation), that I can understand that there’s little point making more characters unless it’s just to play someone with a super-specific configuration. 😄

If AGS is due any extra credit (and I believe they’ve made a fantastic game and deserve full praise for it), then it’s because someone has finally made a game that has cured my altoholism. 😅

The baffling thing about it is most of the reasons why they reduced the number of characters only impacted the game back in that first year of PvP Alphas. I mean things like using non PvP flagged alts as human shields (because projectiles still impacted them but did nothing) or having loot banks in the world or non PvP alt characters only matters in the context of those systems.
