One would think that if a PvP-centric video game released an update that caused massive desync where melee attacks visibly connect to a target yet deal no damage and teleport the attacking player back 10 feet, developers would work urgently to try to get this fixed within a day or two max.
Nope, not AGS. Here we are 18 days and one full update later and this issue hasn’t even been looked at yet. But hey, they fixed the lumberjack achievement. That was of course a much higher priority than the entire melee combat system not working properly.
It absolutely blows my mind how incredibly mismanaged this game is at the moment.
Imagine if CoD released an update where a third of all the guns just missed half of their shots for no reason and then the issue went ignored for a month. That’s the current situation with New World, and people wonder why all the players are leaving.
Yes there’s quite a bit of frustration and salt in this post, but it’s because this game could be so good if it wasn’t so incredibly broken. No MMO is perfect on launch, but at this point it feels like this game is being kept on life support by about 10 remaining developers.
