It actually means the buffs are coded client side which may open the game to major cheats

It means a LOT of stuff is handled client side! This does indeed open it up to abuse even with Easy anti cheat.

Amazon need to push potentially game changing stuff to the server.

It does seen like the client is processing and updating the health/damage/buffs… this is an insane design for an mmo.

Thank you for denouncing this

Gamebreaking and needs to be fixed asap.

Who thought of this stupid “feature” for freezing player movement and damage calculations when the window is moving? Surely this is some kind of developer debug flag that has accidentally been left on? If not, this is C-team level developer skills.

Fingers crossed that this thread will not be buried.

Things like this should be top priority and hoping for a response that it is acctually getting priority asap.

Lol at this point, I’m not even shocked anymore. My goodness…

It is not a feature, my guess is the client needs to send some “ack” or some sort of time calculation to the server but since the window is moving the client is paused so it doesn’t send it

definitely needs to be fixed asap. otherwise the only way to defend your territories against exploiters will be to have to exploit yourself.

(I was being facetious about the feature part, hence the quotes)

You may be right, but I am quite sure I have been killed while the game client is minimised, I am not sure why moving the window would be different.

I did some tests.
You just press ESC when you want to stop dying, and then you need to keep the window blocked by moving it with the mouse, as just minimizing it doesn’t stop the render queue.
Also, you need to have the Defy Death hatchet skill if you don’t want to die instantly when the window is finally unfrozen.

This exploit was used today on the Farri server by yellow to take cutless keys. This needs to be addressed immediately. Here is another video on the exploit. This War Exploit Could End New World Before it Gets Started - Amazon Games New World - YouTube
