This is an appreciation post.
I live in a country in Asia which means I constantly play with 200ms ping. I cant do PVP or wars and yet, I love this game.
I was introduced to New world in November by a friend saying that it’s a mix of skyrim and runescape. I was instantly hooked.
I looked up to all the players in fancy gear, fighting monsters, crafting amazing weapons and the game had something for everyone.
For me, it’s been an amazing journey.
From saving up to buy my first voidbent, to getting my first lazarus bow (Also I play Bow/Spear and I still love it).
I love just teleporting to RS sometimes, farming silk, hemp, meeting people and chatting up.
I love interacting with new people in expeditions, you often have very interesting talks.
Sometimes there’s some nice music being played when everyone is farming Male.
The game has so many things that I love and honestly, it’s amazing.
I haven’t played a lot of MMOs, I dont like the entire point and click genre or the craze to max out everything.
Im just a casual gamer who likes to come online, chill out, maybe help people and game on.
And for me, New World is still an amazing experience.
So if you are out there, reading through forums and seeing a lot of negative posts.
I just want you to know that there are still players like me who enjoy the game and are looking forward to the upcoming changes.
And if a 200 ms casual player like me still enjoys OPR sometimes vs trying to get every single edge in the game, you too can enjoy it!
Let’s build a better aeternum together.
