New World Love

It can always be a little intimidating making friends online and even in an MMO it’s sometimes easy to close ourselves off from everyone. However, when we want to broaden our horizons and meet new people, sometimes all we have to do is just say “Hi.”

At least that is New World content creator ItsHilaryMason and her boyfriend Steven’s philosophy. The two forged their relationship in Aeternum by doing just that. “I met Steven because I just said hi,” Hilary said. “People are usually really receptive when you come from a place of kindness. I always make it a point to say hi in every piece of content I do with other Adventurers. You never know who you are going to meet or what they might mean to you a year down the line!”

As soon as Hilary and Steven met, Hilary, could tell that he was a kind and helpful person and “could tell he was the type of person that you’d want to have as a friend.” The two players had a lot in common, both playing New World of course, but also both owning their respective companies. “While we were playing the game, we spent a lot of time working together and dealing with various issues in our respective companies,“ Hilary said. ”This led to us often spending a lot of time discussing our thoughts and concerns which paved the way for us to forge a really strong friendship that branched out from just talking about the New World into our real everyday lives. He became my best friend - and I don't know a better place from which to build a healthy and happy relationship from!“

While it may be daunting, all one really must do is lead the way with a friendly greeting and good intentions. After all, “People are playing New World to have fun, so don’t be afraid to speak up in chat,” Steven said. “My original company was formed by just sending messages and invites to anyone I saw without a company. The worst someone can do is ignore you and move on, but at best it might lead to something great.”
