Why, because I had a differing opinion? lmao
The issue IS the faulty STEAM feature that allows exploiters the ability to readily cheat within the game using this STEAM feature.
Just because this was a feature for whatever reason at launch, does not mean that Amazon does not have a right to disable it, just like many other gaming companies have done. Had this not been overlooked from the beginning, every single person playing would have had to purchase the game to play (like many other games) anyway. Think of it as a bonus, a lot of people got hours of free play time and if they want to continue, they can purchase the game and put it on the account they were playing on.
This is your second direct personal insult in ‘this’ post alone and I am sure it will not be your last because well, that is who you are. My hours shown on New World currently sits at 541.5 if you are really counting.
That is not what I said, must you twist everything? I clearly stated that " I predict that discontinuing Family Share could possibly bring the player base back up a little when legitimate players see that Amazon Games took the first step in limiting exploiting and those banned players returning to the game with the disabling of Family Share."
I know a lot of players that have either stopped playing or have had a more sit back and watch approach (I am one) that is not investing a lot of time into the game until we see the direction that Amazon takes such as taking a quicker stance in stating action will be taken against players using exploits before a fix is implemented, how fast they fix these bugs/exploits, whether bans go out for those actively exploiting, what measures they put into place to prevent future bugs/exploits ect.
Disabling the Family Share is a first step in taking swift action to prevent some of the largest exploits in this game such as the duplication of gold and in-game items and the ability to resurface in game to continue using them after they are banned.
Hmmm which is it, since I am on here (forum) so much I don’t play the game much or I am on here so much…
Again, I did not state that bots and farmers is the reason I want Family Share to remain disabled in the thread you are referring to (but it is a definite additional benefit), you took that all out of context, go look at the exact quote above.
There have been plenty of players that have mentioned throughout various threads that until Amazon can get some of these exploit bugs under control, they are done. I just told you that I am basically on a wait and see approach with simply doing my daily cooldowns until Amazon demonstrates that they will continue to take swift action against the huge problem they have right now with bugs and exploits and disabling Family Share is one such action for me. I have seen this STEAM feature ruin other games and I have seen how it has already become a vehicle for exploiters in this one.
The majority of players that will be gone with Family Share are those that did not pay for the game to begin but hopefully if they liked the game and all of the free time they had playing, they will consider purchasing the game like the rest of us and continue playing. Could there be some legitimate players that purchased the game that are angry enough to quit playing because they cannot now have 10 others playing off their account for free, sure.
As far as me stating the same thing over and over again… It is because people like you twist things I have stated for your own agenda (demonstrated above in this post) and/or fail to see the actual point.
If you bothered to actually read any of my posts, you will see that I have also repeatedly stated that the destructive Family Share STEAM feature is the issue and needs to remain disabled but that it would be great if Amazon Games worked with those currently on Family Share to keep the character and progress if they want to purchase the game for that account OR, work on the ability to transfer that progress to the account the game was previously purchased on as long as there is only one character per server.
