    Yea, that's not mandatory.

    That's exactly what I am saying and around the time I was invited to test the game as well. There just was not a toggle for it in the early builds. But you didn't have to do any PVP necessarily. It wasn't mandatory at the time. It just was the default state that you could not toggle it off. There was barely anything in the game at that point too.

    Duuuuuuuude, so LoL pvp isn't mandatory either, you dont have to attack anyone, neither is CS:GO simply because you can not shot a single bullet.

    Thus by this simple conclusion using your logic, there isn't a single game in entire universe where pvp is mandatory. Clap.

    Thats one of the wrongest options I've heard in a while.

    After trying the beta I decided to give this a chance

    Theres no subscription so thats a plus for having a side game to play

    That said, the game really needs a minimap and resource tracking

    Trying to find hemp without knowing where or what to look for was silly

    Tracking resources really isn't a problem once you get your leveling up and you naturally begin to know what kind of tileset to look for when seeking x resource. Not like that map is that big or varies a whole lot.

    Agreed, I was able to find hemp easily after finding it the first time
    The issue is that first time. Hell, I looked online and it said "forests"


    Oh well. Syndicate forever

    that's the description from the resources tab on the left side when you open the map i think. after awhile of gathering it'll show up on the compass if you're close enough.
    at least that was my experience during the open beta.
    I had fun once, it was terrible.

    Yes, in the map on the left you can click Resource to have the biome in which a resource can spawn. After that, you can also go in the gathering/crafting tab, and let say you click on gathering, youll have picture of all the resources + the requirement level to gather them. Finally, if you just want to know the spawn directly, you can visit https://www.newworld-map.com/#/ and filters with the resources you are looking for.

    I checked the EU servers from here during beta and I want to say it was around 250ish.
    This has way more info I found.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/newworldgam...vers_ping_etc/

    Try reading that and maybe using that site they are for ping checks.
    Few people from diff locations all discussing it.

    Thank you for that. Cloudping has me around 100ish apart from Oregon, which is 190ish. Guess I'll just have to check once it goes live.

    This is blatantly false. Not calling you a liar, but you obviously remember incorrectly. You can even source the developers themselves, for instance https://www.newworld.com/en-us/news/...new-worlds-pvp

    Anyone have thoughts on what faction they are choosing?
    Was leaning towards the syndicate.
    Will this choice play out heavily once we have the full scale takeover battles in war?
    Wasn't sure if there was the chance of how wow is and being on less populated faction like what happens in WG.
    War battles are going to be crazy fun I think.
