Abusing tents to prevent resource nodes from spawning

  • What is your character name in New World: iuki

  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: el dorado

  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: tents can prevent resource node spawns.

  • Is this a bug or an exploit: bug or exploit depending on how players abuse this.

  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: players are able to prevent resource nodes to spawn by placing tents on or near them. since they are all static and not random, it is easy for players to lock out resource spawns. with a group effort, you could lock down entire zones.

  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: no

  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced: N/A this is wide spread and can happen anywhere there is a resource node/can place a tent on them.

  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced:

  1. go to resource spawn and gather it.
  2. then put a tent on it or near it.

A single tent can block 4+ seperate ones depending on what it is. ie. plants.

solution: make nodes spawn randomly or go through all the spawns outside of landmarks and make a no build zone around them.

I have noticed a lot of this lately. Not sure why they do it other than to grief.

they do it to prevent bots from aimlessly botting, instead the bot will constantly interact with the tent, if the game cant be fixed the player base will find a way to slow it down

They also do it to make it less lucrative for the competition, so people leave and they have all of the ores to themselves.

Ragnaras does it on Eden. He blocks 3 different ones going from one node to the next every so often and they will never respawn if he keeps doing it once every 10 mins or so. It is like TheBestGFEver said to make the competition leave. Once he is alone he will unblock them. He has been doing it on Eden for over a month and nothing being done
