Still no trading post/Trading AFTER patch? Did I read that correctly?

Continuing the discussion from [Downtime] December 8th, 2022:

So we get a patch to fix the issue and the trading post will remain down? Feels pretty terrible.


Yes. They are patching the exploit used but they have to resolve the duplicated items and gold. I would hope they wouldn’t turn trading and TP back on before those users are banned.


I’d hope they are banned already. Don’t need maintenance to handle that.


The maintenance is to fix the exploit. Again, some people are probably banned already, but they have to ensure they got everyone before they enable the systems.


As long as Trading is disabled im happy. Bots and gold sellers are currently useless ingame.


Most likely keeping it disabled until they can remove all the duped items/gold before they can transfer it around to other characters that were not involved in the duping.


what stupid logic. why stop at trading? they should also take down all servers and make the game singleplayer to deal with any cheaters


There are many MMOs and RPG that has completely removed trading, just to get rid of bots. And it makes the game more enjoyable to play.

go play those MMOs then. there is no world where AGS removes trading bro wake up


With that comes bots, coin farmers and dupes.

This is kinda outdated in an MMO, today trading is really not needed especially not in New World because most items are Bound on Pickup anyway.

People who trade are usually up to no good.

The NW economy is one of the main reasons I play and if you do high end stuff it’s almost needed. I had to go farm a stupid amount of mats to cut 5 gems, make 6 trophies and pots/stones to run Mutations this week.


have you played this game before?


You know, many causal players or PvE player mainly played because it was fun to go out and explore and gather materials. But now everything is already mined or harvested by bots farming everything 24/7. But that might not be a problem because that group of players probably already left the game.

But have fun flipping the trading post with 500 players online on your server.


Just log out. Seriously anyone who is annoyed by this, just log out. When player numbers take a hit, AGS might get the hint. Vet this game better in PTR. Period! This patch was in the oven a long time. There was obviously players ready to take advantage of this when the patch went live. Well then was it reported in PTR? What about these in game alarms (Gaslight Mechanism - probably doesn’t even exist)… guessing they did not go off in PTR. Just Log Out.

Next time new patch comes and we get locked out of a game feature… Just Log Out! Tired of this every Patch something gets shut down, turned off, disabled whatever.


@Aenwyn re:[Downtime] December 8th, 2022

Sorry to bug you as i’m sure you have your hands full but 1 question begs to be answered and I was hoping you could beg an answer from the devs.

Will there be a roll back of any kind because of the dupe/exploit/whatever it was, and will it affect only certain servers or the entirety of the game?

For many of us playing and farming materials for resources to do our daily tasks the unanswered question of our efforts being rolled back for the last 2 and a 1/2 days hangs heavily and begs the question of whether or not we are wasting our time.


I can confirm that we will not be rolling back the servers and we’re working hard to get the Trading Post and player to player trading back up as soon as possible.


i don’t geet it why not roll the servers back? thats the only thing thats gonna fix this thing. you ban the cheaters and then they harrass you in email for a month and you unban them. this is such a bad system.
