New World Players Reportedly Abusing Autobans To Win At PvP, Amazon Responses Unclear
Conflicting information from Amazon isn’t helping.
Okay, so let’s start out by saying that this appears to be an old/new problem. It’s new in that it’s new to us. However, it seems like New World players were issuing complaints to Amazon about it during testing back in July. Currently, reports are that New World players are manipulating the game’s reporting system to have their enemies banned from the game for 24 hours prior to a war event. Obviously, the goal here would be to cull the numbers of the opposing factions before they even have a chance to enter the battlefield and more or less secure your faction’s win more easily.
Of course, with how faction balance has panned out on some servers, some may consider it balancing the playing field. That said, whatever the reasoning behind it, it’s still manipulating a system not intended for that purpose. That system is believed to be an autoban mechanism that kicks off if a player is reported enough times.
According to a report on PC Gamer, players have been complaining on Reddit and the New World forums about losing previously won territory to these bans. One person even stated that half their company (50 out of 100) had been banned due to false reports.
Unfortunately, players aren’t getting the clearest response from Amazon regarding the issue. Some community and customer service staff have responded with indications that 24-hour bans are, in fact, automatic bans that result from players hitting a report threshold, while others state that each and every report is viewed by an actual human. In some cases, moderators are refuting each other directly. It’s a huge mess.
