Amazon Games is crafting a new solution against players trying to bypass New worldnative AFK attenuation of.
In an update released late Saturday night, community manager HardcoreHenry posted an update on how he plans to deal with AFK players. In the post, they refuse to go into details of how the solution works, and those who play New World will normally not experience any disconnection issues.
Those who have been playing New World since its launch on Monday are well aware of how horrible the wait times are, so many have tried to find ways to bypass the AFK auto-attenuation put in place by New World’s developers in order to avoid a long queue when they come back to the game.
Many players can be seen running through walls automatically, but they will discover the hard way that AutoPlay does not avoid a kick from the AFK timer, so many have done things like setting macros to stay very little active when they are away from the computer.
Those taken for the first time will simply be returned to the main menu as if the AFK timer was working normally. However, if the behavior persists, New World will apply “tougher” penalties. The post did not give details of what happens to players who continue to bypass AFK mitigation.
The new AFK mitigation method is rolled out over a period of time, so results won’t be immediate, but players waiting in long queues can rest assured that the issue has caught the attention of developers and, hopefully alleviate the problem. long wait just to get into the game.
