December’s patch will match gear points with expertise, making crafting pointless.

New world recently got its 1.1.1 update nerfed en obtained from killing the Elementals. Players weren’t too happy about that change, so to ease the bad news, Amazon Games decided to reveal an even more compelling change that is coming in patch 1.2 in December.

Changes that adjust how your Watermark point will soon take precedence over your actual Gear Point. “Starting at the beginning of 2022, [Expertise] will govern the performance of your device, “Amazon Written. “This means that if your War Hammer Expertise is 520 and you equip a Score Warrior of 550, the weapon’s Effectiveness Score will drop to 520.”

The change is specifically aimed at preventing players from going to the trading station to purchase higher level gear to perform above their Expertise level, AGS said. The studio believes this change will be healthier for the future of the game, but players don’t seem to agree.

“I’ve never played a game where the developers have actively made the game worse over time to this extent,” one furious New World player wrote on Reddit. “It’s like self-destruction at this point.”

The big problem with setting the Gear Score to Expertise is that it eliminates the majority of incentive manual gear. For now, New World players who have maxed out their crafting skills can simply craft level 600 gears and skip most of the time increasing their Expertise. Alternatively, players can go to trading counters and buy equipment from crafters. This means that there is always a good reason to increase your crafting score.

However, when this change comes into play, the high level gear crafted will be the same as any gear the player finds lying on the ground in terms of Gear Score. As a devastated New World player booked it, “All of my completely built 600GS gears that I just finished last week will soon be worthless.

“The thing that I spent all my gaming time (700 hours) working towards, is now worthless. I feel like a deflated balloon. Video games are not supposed to make you feel that way. “

That opinion is shared by many people Reddit posts, with many people commenting promise to leave the New World if this change takes effect. New world lost almost 70% of players since the game went live in October.
