    Its just really bad.
    Find a server without a ridiculous queue. Even at prime time my server is only around 300 queue and takes my friends 15mins to get in.
    I've heard AGS even has free character moves for the first 2 weeks or so, if you start on one server and your friends on another, after everything calms down a bit, you all can combine into one server if you'd like.

    Why are people already abandoning New World? I’m having a blast in it…
    Maybe stop basing everything about what you think of the game on what streamers are and aren't doing?

    What people are streaming is irrelevant. Literally the only thing in your post that is relevant, is the last 6 words. Enjoy the game, stop giving a shit about streamers.

    Aside from 'they were sponsored to play it and don't actually care' there is also the issue that they are streamers. They can't sit in queue for 5 hours as part of their stream. From a business perspective they are better of playing any game compared to sitting in queue for NW.

    Outside the odd question to research, example is there a mini map? I've always hated when you find out something much later and you're like, so all this time i could have... Best example of this was swg at launch, going to Fort Tusken was on foot which was an epic journey i'll never forget, very far to travel from Mos Eisley, sure we could wait half an hour for a shuttle to Mos Espa which is much closer but even still that's far from the fort, but meh let's backpack it, there were no mounts, gargantuan worlds, so auto run ofc, i find out weeks later talking about the game he mentioned how it's such a pain to hold down the w key lmao doh moment. He's like there's an Auto Run? lol Gawd mmorpg's used to be so superior.

    Btw devs, please do not include a mini map this is so much better for immersion.

    Anyway what I've realized is I'm not researching builds, bis, nothing, which is so AWESOME!!! It is so enjoyable to just mess around trying different builds, i love it, think for yourself, i've been mainly going on feel, as in what clicks with me personally with this game. I mean in wow you look you're build up and make it happen, when you're a high end raider you have to do this but i did when i solo'd too, and I've been doing this with all the mmo's i've played at one time, even eso where it really doesn't matter.

    Here though the world is so immersive, so enjoyable that trying different builds is fun, change to this wep, go kill some mobs, you know, i'm just taking my time. I know zero reason to burn hard on a brand new ip, brand new mmorpg. When i first started i was all S&B + Bow, the bow is done well with how it works, same with the musket, aim, zoom in, POW!!, bow aim, zoom, draw, release, i admit i was surprised with the detail, care and options put into all the weapons, now i'm still S&B but now + Hatchet, this is working well for me atm, feels right, feels good af, and i don't give a rats ass what the internet reads as best, i thought S&B/Bow was going to be my jam, i'm probably going to stick with S&B + H, even the Hatchet options, want some range tagging np, Gawd i love this mmorpg.

    And now the map is changing, Muahahaha, you can feel how good this game is going to become.

    The queue though ugggg amirite, being around mmorpg's i'm totally patient with a queue as once all the tourists leave and we are down to core players, i'd rather not endure any type of merges due to launch rush band-aid solutions.

    I thought sponsored streamers were given Queue priority. I.e., skip to the front of the queue. Seems a bit odd to sponsor streamers to sit in the queue window..

    This might be the fastest I've ever seen the hype around an MMO die, and I was pretty hyped for WildStar at the time. The game looked fantastic during the beta, influencers hyped it up, and then they abandoned it at release. That doesn't mean it's a bad game by the way, not at all. They did the same thing for FFXIV, they do it for every WoW expansion, they do it for a lot of MMOs. If you're having fun that's more important than what your favorite streamer is doing btw.

    That said I wonder if Towelliee is still planning on getting a New World tat.

    It’s odd; I figured Amazon would pay them to only play New World for a few months. Seeing some top streamers already going back to FF14 is not a good image…

    Isn't that every single MMO release? So many people think they can again get this feeling of logging into one for the first time, with the sense of scale and wonder the genre is good at, and hype themselves the fuck up in anticipation of that hit. Until they actually log in and it's still an MMO, AKA a grind-a-thon choke full of bugs, especially at launch.

    To say nothing of influencers only being really interested in this thing, or anything, so long as it brings in views. Which sitting in queue probably doesn't unless you're Asmongold because his fans would watch him watch paint dry for some reason.

    How is the lack of a mini-map more immersive? The map is still there and it still tells you all the same info a mini-map does only now you have to keep hitting the M key every 30 seconds to check your location.

    Please tell my 2000+ queue that lol. As far as streamers going back to ffxiv is not surprising, ffxiv is the new mmorpg king, literally blew wow out of the water, it's the largest audience. They will stream for what makes them the most $$$ it's not as if they have a choice.

    New World is not going to be for everyone, for me it's hitting so many check marks, i'm beside myself impressed with this gem. A real mmorpg for mmorpg players.

    Maybe when the queue issue is resolved they’ll get Preach and Rich back full time. Those two can turn it around for New World.

    Going to leave this here as this is not yet common knowledge, when in queue and you get the too many connections error.

    Press okay and wait, do not press play again and within a few minutes you will be automatically restored to your position in the queue.

    Has anyone here some experience with playing in a different region than your own? How's the latency, and how much of an issue is it for the more action-based combat?

    Quite a few of my friends started, but they're all in EU, while I live in the US. Now I'm thinking of joining. But I probably wouldn't enjoy it if it's too bad or too difficult to hit anything due to a high latency with this combat system.

    I would not do it, you can see the latency counter when selecting a server. I have seen streamers at 120-160ms the delay is rather bad and that was not even in the 50 vs 50 which would probably put you over 200ms.

    You can try it out to know for certain but in a more action based game it would hinder your ability to respond correctly in several game modes, not to mention people would also annoy you be being able to tag a mob to skin or a node to mine etc faster than you.

    Not an explorer i guess? For me i never realized how often you check the mini map. Without it all my attention is within the game world, with a quick confirm check with the compass to make sure i'm heading in the right direction. No mini is by far one of the best features of the game.

    Nutshell so instead of staring at mini map while traveling you're actually immersed in the world while traveling.

    I'm so engrossed at times it's no surprise that i'm way the f off course and i'm way over here and i was heading way over there, so tired of checklist to do list mmorpg's, this is so refreshing to just soak in the world. If you want to race through the game at speed of c, then yeah i could understand no mini being an issue. New World isn't going to be for everyone.

    That's demonstrably not true. Unless Asmongold is streaming FFXIV it's at least 10k viewers behind WoW. This will change when WoW or XIV have a content patch and then they'll actually be competitive with each other. Right now Asmongold is single handed carrying XIV's viewership numbers and has been for a couple months now.

    Community hype doesn't have anything to do with server queues. If you asked the Warzone community a month ago Warzone was a dead game but it was still one of the most watched games on Twitch and finding games was instantaneous. Right now the Genshin Impact community is having a little shitstorm but that doesn't impact the entire population of the game. Much like how the average WoW player doesn't give a shit about emotes or real life lawsuits.

    In the post you quoted I even pointed out that it doesn't matter what your favorite influencer does if YOU are having fun, just that most of the streamers that I follow went back to other games even faster than I thought they would.

    MMO-Champ always houses the weirdest type of doom and gloom I ever see on the internet. What's the random swipe at Towelliee? He's literally streaming the game right now to 18k viewers. I'd understand that comment if he stopped playing, but I don't get it?

    This forum is so fucking weird tbh. You guys are like from a bygone era by the shit you care about. It hasn't been abandoned; if streamers stop playing it, who cares? Either you play it or you don't, not everything has to be the most amazing game ever made in history.

    This comment isn't based on reality at all. The game has 450k viewers on Twitch. How has it been abandoned? It's like you're trying to get a jump on the "oh look it died" train ahead of schedule just so you can say you've been saying it from the beginning. God forbid people actually just play a game and have fun.

    So ridiculous. This site is so garbage because it houses old, old gamers from an era that is happily gone.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Asmongold isn’t playing much nowadays. FF14 is huge right now; Rich Campbell and Preach have moved over and it’s insane the amount people who love it now.

    Current rank of MMO’s is FF14/New World/ESO/WoW.

    Gotta say it's the direct opposite for me. Couldn't be less MMORPG if it tried. I think the devs get a slight pass for it being their first ever game as a studio, but an MMO is not where you experiment with wacky shit. Could have just stuck to the tried and tested traditional MMO, actually worked on some content, and had a good game.

    Probably the worst multiplayer game I have ever had the misfortune of playing. To each their own I suppose.

    I imagine this game is going to be the new Black Desert Online. It wont die... but nobody will really remember it exists.
