The New World has been launched for more than two weeks, and players have begun to squeeze a large amount of gold from each other, that is, game currency. Although New World may not be a true sandbox MMO like EVE Online, it may soon gain a similar reputation for skeleton games.
On the New World subreddit, this week players began to share stories about the collapse of the entire faction due to the improper behavior of a few players. “I think the Syndicate faction of the Heracleion server just got the speed record of the New World faction smashing drama,” Wrote a player named Paradogs. “Only 7 days.”
In the new world, players are divided into three factions, which are constantly fighting each other in order to control different areas.Players can create companies-the guild’s new world term-representing their faction and can Declare war on other companies Direct control of settlements and surrounding countryside. If the company owns the territory, they profit from the taxes that players earn from trading items or using its crafting station, while companies without land rely mainly on the generosity of their members. The only problem is that the company must operate with a high degree of trust, because nothing can stop the company’s leadership from losing all the gold.
Paradoggs went on to explain on Heracleion, One of many servers in New World, He belongs to an unnamed company that recently lost in a war with another faction in the New World. Now that they don’t have their own territory, the leaders of the guild began begging the Paradogs company to put out every point of gold they could to pay for the cost of obtaining the contract for the last remaining unclaimed area on the server. Winning the war is obviously not this person’s strong suit, so this is the last opportunity for this company to own land. Paradoggs said that 200 players donated approximately 60,000 gold coins to fill the company’s vault-an incredible amount for most players. At that time, the guild leader of Paradogs poured all the money into his character’s wallet and disappeared.
Paradogg said that from there, his guild leaders and friends started creating new characters, transferring funds, and deleting their old characters so they could start over without anyone knowing who they were. The sudden deception apparently plunged the Syndicate faction of Heraklion into chaos. “Ninety people in the guild are left behind, bankrupt and betrayed. The faction (the smallest on this server) is in chaos and full of betrayals. No one believes in anyone. No one knows anything except being invaded and killed. Do sobs.”
The comments on this Reddit post received more than 3,000 likes, and similar stories were quickly shared by other players. It seems that in all servers in the New World, company leaders are emptying the guild bank and defecting to an opposing faction, while other companies are closing down due to interpersonal drama. “This game has caused severe damage to the weak. I have a friend whose guild leader kicked him and others just because they [didn’t] After agreeing to some in-game strategies [winning],” One commenter wrote. “Years of friendship are thrown into the trash can in other games. This is crazy.”
“A similar thing happened on my server the other day,” Wrote another player. “maximum [Covenant] Company leaders emptied their treasury and went to work [the Syndicate].”
This is the kind of thing you usually expect from games like EVE Online.Although, as someone who has already reported on EVE Online most meticulously made scam Over the years, the artistry of these snatched products has hardly been of the same level. The huge scams that have caused waves in the EVE community are the result of very smart plans that may take months to incubate, and so far, as long as you don’t donate all your gold to a corporate bank run by someone you can run , You can avoid the scam of the new world to a great extent. Don’t punch in real life.
However, I am very excited about this kind of thing Yes It happened because it added a lot of interest to the faction PVP in the new world. After all, half of the people who died in Game of Thrones were killed by so-called allies. But in any case, if you are a member of New World Corporation and the company begs you to give up your gold for “team progress”, you may just want to tell them that you are actually poor and have nothing to give.
