Apologies!!! I forgot we had Monday off for a holiday. We spent today catching up but this is bumped up on my priority list to ask. I haven’t had a chance yet. Sorry about that!

Hey now, I’m definitely not complaing about our holidays… although I do remember a coworker who lived in Berlin had SO MANY more holidays off, so who knows.

And I promise you, as soon as I have information that I can share with you all, I will let you know. But it’s absolutely not New World shutting down.



Constructive conversation about the PTR

Shadow_Fox

Hey everyone!

I’m back! Enjoyed a long weekend due to the holiday and with it being my third week with the team, I’m ready and excited to dive back into it!

Since my posts tend to just evolve into a conversation about some aspect of the game, lets try and focus on a singular topic so I can gather information for the devs.

Before I ask my question…

  1. Don’t kill the messengar. (The messenger being me. I’m just gathering the information to present to the devs.)
  2. I’m human. And have human feelings. Please be nice even when feeling passionate about a topic.
  3. We are in this together, you, the devs, me and other players. Please don’t attack anyone for their ideas.
  4. Don’t kill the messenger.
  5. I will ONLY interact with comments that stick on topic in this thread. I can only juggle so many conversations at once and if this goes will I promise to do more ‘focus fire’ threads on different topics. (I know you want to know more about new character creation, orbs, transfers, etc. I cannot shed any new light on any of these topics as of now. I’m sorry.)

QUESTION: What would interest you enough in wanting to play on the PTR?

[Notice] Disabling Character Creations - All Regions

Greetings Adventurers,

At this time we are pausing character creations on all servers/regions. We will provide additional information when it becomes available.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!



[Downtime] PTR Update #2

Luxendra

Greetings Adventurers,

The PTR will have a scheduled server restart at 2022-01-18T22:00:00Z in your local timezone for 1 hour (~60 minutes).

At that time, a new set of playtester backstories will be made available (replacing the older ones) which will introduce the above modifications for assisting in reaching higher-end Mutator expeditions. These will be available for the remainder of this cycle’s test period.

  • Expedition Mutators - Difficulty 10 unlocked
  • Gear boxes will provide items at Gear Score 625 (upgraded from 600)
  • Territory Standing Vials provided to assist with housing purchases
  • Housing Trophies and Storage Chests provided

In order to take advantage of these new backstories, you’ll need to create a new character and select the updated backstories.

Thank you for your patience and see you in Aeternum!

Mid day slump... zzz

Shadow_Fox

Sleep well and thank you!

I think that’s a great idea!!! I’ll bring it up to the team Monday and see what we can do.
As for Waterdrop, I was actually just looking into that brand!! But I read some reviews that they take FOREVER to ship… so I wasn’t sure. But maybe I’ll give them a try!



Mid day slump... zzz

Shadow_Fox

For sure, I think we all agree and we do all understand. The team understands that the anger starts from a love and a passion of a game that they themselves love. I think it will balance out in time, especially with AGS realizing that they need a bigger team and to increase communication.



Mid day slump... zzz

Shadow_Fox

I think the problem here is, and the team knows it, there are ALOT of suggestions and feedback from the community on ALOT of different platforms from ALOT of different people. And some think that once it’s suggested, that someone does hear it and… its brought instantly to the team and it’s the only thing they focus on and work on until completetion. Sadly, that’s not the case. Many times these ideas get missed or are passed onto the wrong person, or it’s buried under a list of more pressing projects and bug fixes OR it’s just decided against completely. I’m 1000% not saying that is the case with this suggestion, not at all, I actually have NO IDEA what the team is doing with the arena suggestion. All I can say personally is I’ll bring it up with the team and we’ll go from there.

I was recently hired, two weeks ago actually, for this purpose. To better create this network of communication directly to the devs and then back to you guys. We’re just getting started :smiley:



Mid day slump... zzz

Shadow_Fox

I’m not sure? I could ask… or have something done in a similar way. A few devs did hop on the forums for an hour Tuesday and yesterday. It’s hard on them because there is so much anger and negativity but they did their best and tried to answer a few questions. Hopefully we can do it agian next week and answer a few more!
