This is exploit that lost us our war and made our siege ineffective to counter their zerg.
I have shotcalled numerous (10+) wars in this game, 4 now since launch, and have never seen the lag/exploit this bad, and thats including the beta which they “fixed” since then.
****** Please make sure you fill out the following information before submitting a report ******
What is your character name in New World: TheKdog
What server/world did you experience your issue on: Themiscyra
Describe the issue you are experiencing: War lag exploit using ice storm aoe to make point/instance lag out. Made our cannon fire disappear as it got to point, negating LVL 3 defensive explosive cannons and making them not register 90% of the time.
Is this a bug or an exploit: Exploit
(if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: Cannon and seige equipment shots would disappear approaching point and not register. It made us lose our war. If you cant use seige equipment on defense then you will lose. Whats the point of having max emplacements and max cannons if they do nothing.
(if a bug) Were you able to recover from the issue: No
(if a bug) Please include a screenshot or video of the issue that you have experienced: Whole vod of war on ttv:kdog starting at 2 hrs in of 10/6. Have clips showing how our siege was made ineffective and getting no reg’s, including a clip shared with me from other side of the battle showing that this was intentional through comms they were getting.
- What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Ice gauntlet mass aoe essentially puts up a lag barrier that makes impossible for siege damage to regiser and for our troops to do anything against them.
As I said above, this needs a fix NOW. I knew the lag was bad but didnt know the extent of hits not registering until post war and watching other creators streams.
When the other marauders on the server(not the company exploiting) reach out to me saying that I shouldn’t have lost the war, and that we were exploited against and we all should start compiling evidence showing to report it, you know its bad. We want enjoyable wars where you get outplayed or strategized, not this.
I love this game, I love the war mechanic, and it’s the main focus of endgame control for now… and this will ruin that if it gets out/continues past this first week. Please fix this asap.
