War army invulnerability bug - server breaking

*Time and Date Experienced: October 11th, 9:00pm EDT, Syndicate (ATK) vs Marauders (DEF) in Everfall.

  • What is your character name in New World: Cookymonster
  • What server/world did you experience your issue on: Brobdingang
  • Describe the issue you are experiencing: During war, the attacking side used a desync exploit with the ice gauntlet to rush capture points and go invulnerable while on the cap, making it impossible to defend in a war.
  • Is this a bug or an exploit: EXPLOIT
  • (if a bug) How did the issue effect your gameplay: This exploit allowed them to win the war.
  • (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: Twitch
    Above is the video of our defender teammate streaming the war - noteable timestamps where you can see them using the exploit - 2:35, 4:15, 6:00, 13:00
  • What are the steps to reproduce the issue as you experienced: Having multiple people using the ice gauntlet’s ice storm ability in one area renders that area “invulnerable”, anybody inside it you can clearly see is not taking damage. It freezes the siege weapons so cannons/repeaters are no longer firing, and you can’t damage those on the capture point.

This was purposely done on our server by the compoany “ONLY DADS” on Syndicate, the company leader even stated in their Discord “we gotta do what we gotta do boys”. This is blatant abuse of a known exploit which is literally BREAKING your game and it’s endgame content; demotivating people to a point that playing this game is illogical.

They coordinated their war plan to zerg each point and be efficient at desyncing in order to win. I want to see some bans and server rollbacks this time around. Malicious intent dictates this was intentionally done to abuse your game and the players who enjoy it, please uphold the integrity of the game.
