    Well, it's been only a little over a month since New World was released, and the bloom is already off the rose.

    A combination of crazy bugs and a rapidly-dropping player base (going from nearly 1 million concurrent players shortly after launch to under 250,000 today) has the future of the game already in question.

    Seems like the post-mortem might come sooner than I thought!



    EDIT: As of February 8, 2022, the game is down to about 45,000 concurrent players, most servers are ghost towns. and about half this population are gold-farming bots. The game is done; it's toast. I hate to say I told you so, but...

    Maybe EA could take it over and make it better??

    :D
