I worked really hard to get everything to 200, now New World is having XP extravaganzas for crafting, gathering, weapons, and levels. Added spawn points for mining, that’s great, but it doesn’t address the botting. So now we have extra spawn points for gathering and the same amount of bots, that will adapt to the new locations. It waters down the time I have put into the game. The grinding I have done for items and gold. Named dropped items are going to be craftable in the future? This is what games do after there is a significant gap between people starting the game, and end game. Games that have several expansions with new level caps. New World is nowhere near that point in its lifespan. At this rate, New World will be offering the game with a maxed out character for new players, complete with gear, before the year is out. That may be an incentive to new players, but demoralizes existing players. Those new players will eventually hit end game and realize that everything was a walk in the park, end game complete, time to move on to the next game.
At this point, why should I buy high priced items on the trading post? The items will be a dime a dozen in a few weeks. Why bother with orb creation, those will be thrown to the wind too, right? What is the point of playing now? Switch to another game and come back when everything is available?
