Housing top list completely broken (on vega? maybe somewhere else?)

  • What is your character name in New World: All players of this house
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Vega at least
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: The top list of the house in Everfall in front of the trading post is bugged for a few weeks now
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: bug
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: i’m pretty sad, spent a few hundred k on my design and no one can see it
  • (if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: i wish
  • (if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced:
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced:

for some weeks now the top list is bugged. usually every 48 hours the house with the most points during the last 48 hours goes on display. but here’s how it goes on Vega for this house, which is probably the the most owned one in the entire game:

  • sometimes it updates when the 48-hour-timer is over.
  • sometimes 3-4 hours before.
  • sometimes 3-4 hours before and then AGAIN when the 48-hour-timer is over
  • sometimes you are not even part of the list even if you’re at 1.000.000+ points for the current 48 hours circle (which happened to me a lot after spending a LOT on town quests, crafting and more)
  • sometimes it doesn’t update at all
  • sometimes i cannot even determininate the “logic” behind the bugged timer

I would be really happy if someone from the team could reply to this issue.

We’re looking into this!

This has been going on for months now and continues to happen. The most common issue is the update right before the actual 48hr timer and then the timer calculates over 1-2 hrs at 3am server time and its a bunch of naked house scores on the list. Happens to 1/2 the house plots on most servers every 48 hours or until they hard patch and bring everything back up on correct timers.

Hello fellow housing enthusiast. I’ve been told it’s worth it to make an alt on your US server just to visit your houses which I still need to do.

Ontopic: Especially downtimes seem to trigger this bug. Houses are always (?) on base points without the influence multiplicator after downtimes, just 2-3 on a lot seem to sneak through this bug and get some points. Noticed this on Vega and now after transfer on Aaru as well.
It’s so frustrating to push bi-daily points to the cap and then boom, all gone.

Haha thank you, the house is a bit of a wreck right now but working out a new design soon.

Hotfix patches are definitely one of the causes of the issue. It seems to me that the patch will create a new “calculation” time based on when the hotfix goes in. For example, on Pluto right now the last hotfix was at 2am and housing calculates at about 7am. Scores calculate and update at both times essentially leaving a short window when few people are online doing anything that would garner territory standing and thus multiply points. So you get the 3-4 people who were online up top and a bunch of naked house scores filling the list.

You’d think this would be an easy fix, but who knows with this spaghetti
