How about a little respect and understanding for the dev team

I appreciate and feel the devs are doing the best they can with probably a shitty engine not designed for MMO. I also think they generally care and want to make a great game.

Saying they are doing an outstanding job though? No. If this were anything but a video game it would be a disaster. Banking or financial software, something like space shuttle coding, PLC automation in a factory, building a bridge, anything… apply their “outstanding job” to anything and it would be a disaster.

Even for an MMO its pretty bad. I cant recall ever playing an MMO where things like Auction house had to be shut down for extended periods multiple times, or Azoth being just shut off being a key system for many things in a game and taking this long to fix, simple chat that doesnt work for shit a year after launch, etc.

even fluff wise the random names of items tells me they dont even have a design bible.

like come on.

how we get from azoth to gypsum to umbrals to ruinstone stop watches of all things, and Materia (which im actually not sure if square can sue for. i believe it has a general definition but iv only ever seen it used exclusively in FF)

Please…just NO.
That being said, total respect for them, but let’s take off the rose-tinted glasses and admit that this visually outstanding game had (and still has) some of the biggest messed up issues I’ve ever seen in any mmo.

Care to elaborate on what the biggest current issues are in your opinion

really ? just found that they announced 2016 at twitchcon

Well, for starter I’m in this condition and simply cannot enjoy the game

After that, we could stay here and write a list of the issues we met since release (dupes, glitches, exploits, perks not working, etc) but the list would be too long I think.
Just take a look at the known issues for the last patch

The biggest issues have always been the game performances, with its absurd lag, desync and rubber banding.
What about the UI, simple interaction with npc glitching out cause of poor programming?
If you played a lot of mmos these things are really evident, you can’t miss them.
I played +2k hours, I loved it, its graphic design, the general mood, the combat system (even with its balancing issues), but from that to say these devs have done an “outstanding job” there’s a lot of terrain to cover.

Yeah I agree didn’t say that they’ve done the best job ever my main gripe is people who say desync is the worst it’s ever been and then don’t provide any evidence or the just flat out say the game sucks and don’t provide any suggestions on how to improve it or stuff like move ue5 or shut down, like that’s an option at this point. To think that they aren’t constantly modifying the engine for the game would be ridiculous it’s like they said at launch they could never had spawned a 200m thorpe in town without the server dieing but now that’s a thing and while I do hope you find out how to resolve your issues your having with the game right I can’t say I’m having the same issues because that would just be a lie.

I hope the devs take more risks and really step out on a limb to experiment with new MMO features and not bow down to the angry few.

The music addition was great, well polished, fun mini game, rewarding, something to focus on long term levelling…I’d take this addition over mounts, new zones and accelerators any day.

I guess if we’re still New World players today, chances are they’ve got the crowd that really appreciate the game for what it is and the dev’s effort that made it happen.

es una maravilla de desarrollo es indudable eso por un lado por el otro … no creo que deben de sacar la instancia nueva sin arreglar todos los bug que a ocasionado este envento es decir que esta ocasionando ya que las monedas doradas desaparecen ahi cola ademas de algunas misiones bug espero que se arreglen antes de que tiren el parche o mejor seria guardar la instancia y arreglar cositas yo por mi parte seguire jugando desde el minuto 0 asta el fin

me encanta New World mucho animo por cierto solo me sale caracoles a la hora de pescar jaja espaun de pezes de feria xD
un saludo cordial a todos gracias

Ask yourself this… if you bought a car and drove it off the lot, then started having performance issues such as not starting… or stopping suddenly while errors flashed on your dashboard… would you be mad about it? When you got back to the dealership and they said they’re working on fixes but it’s gonna be a year… do you find that acceptable business practices? People bought a product and for many it doesn’t work as intended. It’s a lemon. I enjoy NW but it has massive performance issues and when people try to get help… a lot of what they get is “???”

Unfortunately graphics + sound design + lore are things which came with the game on launch, along with many bugs which still persist/resurface today. I don’t have 3k hours because I hate the game, however, no one can say that they have handled issues swiftly OR effectively.

So many systems have been introduced to ‘patch up’ other flawed systems, granted some of these are welcomed and have improved the QoL tremendously, it does go without saying though that AGS should be disappointed with the vast majority of their work on NW.

NW would not need a subscription model if the game was valued enough by the player base to invest in cosmetics or expansions (alt accounts) but let’s be real, New World is not worth investing anything, other than spare time, in because the return in such an investment is nothing but disappointment or change (cosmetics which have been altered post-purchase, meta shifts, lack of progression due to no battle pass model).

We all know we pay for NW beta 2.

I am sure the managers behind the developers are the problem.

It’s a business and in most companies it’s the leadership that causes the problems, not the engineers.

38 years of working in various companies have shown me that.

ehhh, I guess? I mean it’s the managers who did hire a dev team who has no background experience on MMOs…like AT ALL, and never studied it.

Stopped reading at “amazing job”

Lets see.

  • Dupes
  • Server lag
  • stuttering
  • rubberbanding
  • broken abilities
  • broken perks
  • exploits
  • azoth
  • weapon balance
  • crafting rng
  • server stability (DCs)
  • pvp progress track rewards
  • pvp crates rewards
  • communication with players
  • Boss loot tables

I could go on but, yeah sure “amazing job” in deed.

Sorry what?!

This has to be satire, right? Nothing has worked for a week. All that patient and understanding was for months ago. Time for replacements.

I respect the devs and know they are working hard, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t making mistakes. We give them free Q&A on the PTR and they ignore our feedback about bugs and release a bug riddled update where you can’t even do most of the content. Saying this is not acceptable from a customer standpoint is legit feedback that they don’t seem to listen to as it happens every update.

Having said that the people that post “put f@@king mounts in the game already” etc are jerks. Swearing for demands, calling the devs idiots etc is fully unacceptable. But so is ignoring our feedback, getting our hopes up about a huge update and then releasing it in a basically inoperable state. Both things can be true.

I logged to check the game after a while today after new patch. I still cant understand why the devs spend that much time creating instruments and music expansion instead of working on useful game mechanics and fixes.
This is absoulety wasting of time and resources.
