Amazon’s New World MMO is still in Steam’s top 5 most-played games, but the way it places players in servers is leading to the AI winning many of its faction battles.
New World may need some tweaks in order to compete with MMO mainstays like World of Warcraft or Final Fantasy 14, but the game clearly has an audience. According to Steam Charts, it remains the fifth most popular game on Valve’s platform – over a month on from launch.
Sadly, though, it’s not all rosy. While the game still has an impressive 114,805 players online at present, it’s struggling to keep its servers up to the 2,000 player limit. That limit was intended to ensure that there would always be a healthy number of players to partake in the game’s faction system, but it now appears that the game’s AI is taking over its servers due to players leaving.
