New World Server Mergers Are On The Way While Wealth Transfers Are Disabled…Again
Ya fix one thing, something else breaks…or maybe the same thing breaks. It’s nice to have options.
Okay, New World gang, we have bad news and we have potentially good news – depending on your personal perspective. Both are probably predictable at this point, so we’ll just go with the bad news first and get it over with. Wealth transfers are temporarily disabled…again. Once again, an exploit is the culprit. According to a recent forum post, a “possible duplication exploit” has been reported on the forums and social media. To investigate said exploit, the devs have decided to disable all wealth transfer systems – meaning players are currently unable to send currency or make use of the guild treasury, trading post, or even simple trading. Once they’re done investigating the issue, the devs will turn everything back on.
That said, if you’re one of the people who’ve been abusing the exploit in question, you’re probably going to want to prepare yourself. Amazon will be taking action – although, they did not specify what that action might be.
The other bit of news is that Amazon is working on server merges. They’re currently on the same list as fixing the “ghost contract” issue that has prevented some players from being able to use their server transfer tokens and investigating the desire, and as a result the possibility, of region transfers. (If the latter is something you’re interested in, you’ll need to let them know on a specific forum thread.)
Before server mergers can actually happen, Amazon has stated they need to do a few things. Specifically, they need to run some more tech tests, as the tests during closed beta caused an issue that has apparently been resolved. They also need to be careful when deciding which servers to merge, as it will have an impact on that whole faction PvP thing. Unfortunately, the world being merged won’t keep their territory – since that’s all already claimed where they’re going to. However, since the goal is to solve the stagnation issue on the server in question, it’s probably worth it.
Speaking of stagnation, Amazon has put something in place to help fix that by encouraging players to join less dominant factions. Less popular factions on a server will have extra influence to give them a chance at declaring war. In addition, players will not be allowed to switch factions to the more dominant one. And to help players move to less popular factions more easily, they’ll be reducing the amount of time between faction transfers by half.
