                If it had 900k players online at the same time, it most certainly has more than 2 million active players, just based on timezone differences alone.

      Isn’t that 100k or so less then the peak? I’ve watched alot of the game and im gonna be honest it doesn’t look like it has much staying power, and over time certain issues like the lack of content and the factions will only get worse with time as more and more people leave.

      She sank on her maiden voyage, but still managed to get out of the port and away to sea first. This is heading for an iceberg: it’s called ‘end-game’ and they already removed it without replacing it. This has been delayed well over a year in order for them to cram World of Raidcraft into it, which isn’t enough time. Even vanilla WoW wasn’t Raidcraft; it needed most of the game to be seriously neglected for almost 3 years first, and all the resources spent on raid content, and even then it took an expansion for it to become the game AGS are trying to make New World.

            There is no irony.
            People have been saying this game is for sure going to be the next TOR since the nearly year long delay that they pulled last minute to rework the entire way the PVE and PVP works in the game. Which was nearly a year ago.

            Just because YOU haven’t seen the threads doesn’t mean they weren’t there. And there was certainly a deluge of posting that started with the first closed beta after the delay.

            But sure, go ahead, keep thinking that you’re the infallible Ganker historian.

              No one said that. People don’t care about it enough for it to be a Tortanic even if it sunk the same. Tortanics involve people who are extremely passionate about a game ending up on the bottom of the ocean, like happened with TOR and CP2077. New World is just a heavily marketed FOTM.

                    You want the dirty secret?
                    I played the game in the first two closed betas and absolutely loved it.
                    Then they decided to gut the combat, rework the game into being a pve/pvp hybrid, and decided to focus on adding dungeons and ‘end game raiding’ to a game that was at the time a spiritual successor to UO.

                    Then they decided to change everything and fuck it up, and I’ve been shitposting in every single NW thread I can find since then. That’s how I specifically know that people have been pooping on this game since around that time, and people have specifically been saying it’s the next TORTanic.
                    Not that saying it’s the next TORtanic is special or anything, you dipshits will call any game the next TORtanic.

                    Point is, the threads were there. Just because YOU didn’t participate in them doesn’t suddenly mean they don’t exist.

                      I shit on all these threads and no one calls it a Tortanic, just another Amazon Games blunder. Again, a prereq for a Tortanic is a passionate community which New World didn’t have. The board went completely silent on the game during their month delay as no one legit cares.

      It’s already dying, it’ll be over 100k less players today than yesterday. It just got shilled HARD via streamers so had a strong first week. Makes one wonder how much Amazon paid for each purchase, it might be more than the game cost.

        You mean Monday will have less players than over a weekend? I’m shocked! This game is doing great, already easily making a few 100m for amazon. It’s new, cheap and has no monthly fee. Sure its shallow and players will burnout but that’s all mmo games as they cycle with content drops. New World should have at least a few year run and ghat fine for $40
