So the game has been used on both accounts? It sounded as if you purchased and installed the game on one account and it was only used on the other.
I guess at this point, until Amazon Games is able to assist, your only choice would be playing the game on the account you installed the game on, purchase the game for the Family Share account to continue progress on the same character, or wait until Amazon Games either comes up with a way to transfer progress from one account to the other or until they reenable the exploit riddled Steam Family Share feature, neither of which may ever happen.
If you like the game, I would suggest that you just start playing on the account you installed the game on and then when/if Amazon Games comes up with a solution for the Family Share account, you are at least enjoying the game while waiting?
If they offered to wipe the game while they fix the bugs/exploits and rid the game of all the duped items/gold and exploited settlements, I would restart from scratch in a heartbeat and I would definitely be enjoying the game.
I do not see any mention in that thread or any link within this thread that references someone playing on the account with the game installed possibly losing their high level character forever if they did this?
I would like to see the statement because if something even close to this was stated by an Amazon Gaming employee, it could hint to the fact that they might be working on character transfer but even this would not result in losing the progress from the Family Share, just possibly the new progress on the main account if you start a new character as you cannot have two characters on the same server on the same account.
i’m not 100% sure, i was family sharing NW and my brother at the same time RAFT, but maybe could have been possible for NW fail implementation, but i think the answer should be yes, since i opened other games (didn’t checked if my brother was playing at that time)
Ok, so no actual link or response from a Dev, just someone saying they heard something?
It sounds like the person making the statement played for a bit on the account with the game and then played on the other account through family share once there was issue with queue? Not certain why there would be an issue transferring the character to the other account with the game if he/she continues to play on it other than he/she would need to delete the character on that account IF they wanted the other progress to carry over to the same server.
Glad you are able to continue your progress. I think the system views this as a new account as this is the first time New World has actually been installed on that account. I think Amazon may be working on a solution for this 72 hour restriction for those that purchase the game and install it on an account they previously had 72 hours or more on.
Yeah, not too worried about it. Waited the first day for Amazon to formulate a fix but I wanted to play. Now I have an extra account and the old char is primed to transfer across regions once they implement that.
