I’ve come to the conclusion that New World is not the game for me.
I don’t regret buying it. There are many things I like about the game. The combat is really fun, the crafting, although practically useless for all but the very end is also very good. The world is very nice, the graphics, the look, the feel, all very good.
My biggest praise goes to the sound design team, this is above and beyond, I’ve been playing with surround sound and I just love everything about it.
I also have faith that the developers will fix most of the issues that are hurting the game. For me the biggest problem was the grind. I just want run PVP battlegrounds or engage with open world PVP, but I can’t even get there. I give up, I’m level 48 on my main and I just can’t drag my way through the questing and grinding any longer.
I’m disappointed because this was sold to me as a PVP game, all your advertisement was really misleading. Other than being crushed by higher level players I have experienced exactly one PVP battle, which was fun until two level 60’s decided to just kill me and bring it to an end.
I know people don’t like leaving threads and I don’t blame them so I have tried to keep it positive, but what am I supposed to do now? Six weeks ago I didn’t even know that I needed an MMO in my life. You have created an appetite within me, but not provided me with a meal.
Anyway, I just wanted to say goodbye to all the people on this forum. I think I have spent as much time on here as I have in game. On face value it’s a very negative forum, there is much anger, but I actually think there is a good community here buried underneath it all. Stay safe, stay positive and maybe I will see you in another game.
You should consider pushing to 60 and then deciding. Outpost rush was a game changer for me. If not, good luck on your search for a new game. If you find a MMORPG with decent PvP and isn’t pay to win let me know, I am interested and as far as I can tell this is the closest we have.
I just can’t, I don’t like questing at the best of times. I’m the person that went from 10-80 by just running battlegrounds with six characters in wow, I leveled both my characters in ESO in Cyrodiil only. I just think a good mmo should allow players to level up by doing the things they enjoy.
Are you in a company? Do you have friends to play with? The grind can seem a little intimidating on your own, but you are at lvl 48 already and I say put in a little elbow grease and get yourself the rest of those levels. Every single game i’ve ever played has the grind and i’m not saying it’s right, but i guess i’ve become accustomed to it by now.
It should be telling you that people are finding the game not worth getting to end game. The entire journey needs to be fun and engaging. Stop blaming the people who leave early and instead hope the devs fix it so they dont.
So there is open world PvP but you don’t like it because you get rekt?
This is why there are so few open world PvP games that are successful, everyone thinks they are going to like it, but it is never the 1v1 test of skill they imagine. It is prone to griefers and gankers that don’t want a fair fight, they only want to go in when they know they will steamroll and then they can brag about their “skill” later.
