If you’re concerned about the possibility of other New World players mass reporting you and getting you banned, you shouldn’t be – at least according to a CM's response on the game’s forums yesterday. Community Manager NW_Mugsy responded to a recent thread in which players state that players “mass reporting” the enemy faction to have them banned prior to a territory-deciding conflict. According to Mugsy, “it shouldn’t matter how many reports” are received about a player if they haven’t broken the Code of Conduct as a human reviews the reports and bans based on behavior.
In the post, the CM goes on to note that what is generally occurring is that two groups are baiting each other in attempts to get them to say something that is ban-worthy and then report each other. The increased number of reports only moves the reported individuals up in the review queue. The moderator does the rest of the work from there.
Two caveats that were made in the post are that there may be some confusion with the ban notices being “too vague” and the banned individual just not remembering or realizing what they did, and that there are cases of “human error”. For the latter, it’s advised that players submit an appeal.
This isn’t the only thing the New World team has addressed over the last day or so. The team has also dropped posts addressing changes designed to improve combat responsiveness, the – still in the works – server transfers, and family sharing. For the last, they’ve finally turned family sharing back on for those players who they determined used it as intended rather than for purposes such as gold farming, evading bans, and the like
