    Everyone pvp'ing in the newbie area was like level 29 and the shit-tier hack N' slash mechanics couldn't possibly be more dull.

    I'm going to give ice gauntlet a try to see if it's more engaging.

    The graphics and quest system seem pretty awesome, though.

    Can someone explain to me how New World is so popular?

    Like I read some of the materials and looked at some vids... there's really nothing special about it that stands out. Yet it's selling like crazy despite the usual painful launch experiences.

    Did Amazon just dump an assload of money into the marketing of it? Is it because they own Twitch and were able to hype up to maximum eyeballs?

    Isn't it the first big budget MMORPG to launch in almost a decade?

    Also, I hope it blows because I've dumped a pathetic amount of time grinding pointless shit on my WoW character and I need it mean something.

    Twitch and YouTube hype from the alpha and betas, and twitch frenzy now that it went live. MMORPG fans are looking for something new because they right now they either have to play emulators of long dead games or paid for rehashes with "some changes".

    Honestly there's isn't a whole lot you can do with the MMORPG genre. You can re-skin it and add a few more mechanics here or there but its always the same shit at its core.

    Yeah, gamers are starving for something new in the genre. I think that's the reason.

    Seemed like a janky version of Guild Wars 2 to me, which itself is a 9 year old game. I think Vlaara and I were the only TZT'ers to rly play that one, but it had some awesome pvp.

    Still sitting on the fence, want to see if it sticks for more than a week or two. Are you going to play it?

    Maybe if I have no one to arena with, but I've also been making myself miserable with WoW because i've been raiding instead of arenaing.

    I should just play apex on my console. It's so much less harmful to RL.

    the double-consent pvp system seems dumb af, would wager there's not gonna be much happening within a couple of weeks but idk maybe I'm being a negative nancy

    I think the double consent pvp mechanic is used to offset faction imbalance in world pvp. When I logged in this morning the purple team held majority of the map with green team having 2 zones in control and yellow having 1. Otherwise you'd end up with one faction running a server and there would be no world pvp at all similar to that is happening on wow tbc servers.

    I would guess that will end up happening anyway, just with a lower pool of players (since most of the playerbase won't bother flagging for it).

    The wPvP has been dogshit (for me). I am leveling in my opponent's territory and literally can't find anyone within 6 levels of me flagged in. The only people flagging are level 29 shitlords running around lowbie zones.

    I didn't play for two days and may have already missed the boat on wPvP.

    I played for an hour this morning (4am pst). Got dunked on by level 30's at level 17 the entire time. Had more fun making them chase me around wasting their time than anything.

    If you go prone your name plate disappears from other players screens. So you can prone in heavy foliage areas and set up ambushes or hide.
