It is totally fair to not agree with design decisions a video game team is making, but please avoid creating hostile conspiracy theories to explain those decisions.
For example accusing us of hating our players in the original thread title.
Our goal is always to do what is best for our players and New World. We do listen and care about feedback, we gather feedback from a wide variety of places, and data from how the game is played. Sometimes the implementation of that feedback can take time or is introduced in steps but feedback is a critical guiding force for the team.
We will collect all the feedback we receive from the response to patchnotes, from the gameplay experiences on the PTR and following all changes to the live game and share them with the team to help guide future decisions.
I understand, really, that folks feel unheard and that these changes don’t reflect the feedback some of you have been providing.
