The latest patch to Amazon’s MMORPG New World introduced a new clamored-for feature, namely the server transfer for characters across the same region. However, since the feature had been enabled, the developers were able to identify a condition that allowed certain players to use server transfer to dupe gold.
Players that have deliberately used this exploit to gain advantage will be banned and the ill-gained goods will be removed. To deal with the problem at hand, the team temporarily paused character transfers.
“We’ve transferred approximately 150K players since character transfers went live. A small number of those have resulted in characters with an invalid data state that needs to be corrected. We’ve done that for those affected last night, but there are a still some new transfers affected that we see happening. We have paused character transfers and evaluate how we can prevent future occurrences of this problem. When that is resolved we’ll resume the service, with an announcement ahead of time.”
