    I must admit I was hoping they would have a curated quest experience to top level by the end of 2023, not just improvements to "main quests". Some items sound interesting like Raid Groups and they only go up to Summer, hopefully this is more extensive than it seems at first glance.

    While I don't have the game and have no interest to play it at the moment, after looking at the roadmap, I pretended like I was a player of the game and how these changes would affect my experience and they feel so insignificant. Like 70% of the features in this roadmap don't mean anything to me, what I mean is I don't care about them and never will use them.

    For the year ahead, this is a very scarce roadmap. I would expect some big changes or additions.

    When I played the game during the test periods, it felt so boring and empty, like there was nothing to do and what little there was, was so boring.

    Yeah, that's it. After the Summer 2023 update they will cease all development.

    Or, and this is just common sense, they are not ready to reveal plans for Fall 2023 and Winter 2024.

    You mean the two major updates for the first 6 months? You know a major patch for each quarter which is the exact same system that many MMO's follow?

    Yep, that is so slack and inept I guess.

    half of 2023***

    but most of the things they are adding in these are pretty hefty changes that take a lot of resources and time, so i'm actually not seeing a problem with it.

    I'd say inept, they didn't even bother to introduce the team at the beginning.  Self-important, grey-bearded fellow (presumably Smedley).  Even most amateur-level people with a modicum of manners will introduce themselves rather than assuming that everyone recognizes them by appearance.

    Smedley has nothing to do with New World. He works at a different AGS studio.

    Lot's of strange, salty comments here.

    I'm back playing the game, and from what I can see, many of these things on the roadmap will be welcome changes. If anything, I wish that the cross-server instanced content was coming a little earlier than it seems to be, as that's the real pain point in the game right now.

    Brimstone Sands was a radical improvement to the endgame content, in my opinion, and that was after I quit the game (several months after release) and kind of felt like I'd never return. I'm very glad that I did come back, as I'm back having a great time again.

    Thank you, I thought I would be alone. All this sorrow made me feel embarrassed to be here. Sad comments from strange beings.

    Okay, Smedley-esque, then.  They still didn't introduce themselves.

    It was not strange they did not announce who they were, the ineptitude was down to who made the video. The last one I watched had "names and roles script" as the person came into frame. Quite reasonably they must have just assumed that was going to happen. It is a small mistake, so I think you can read too much into it. But it is something they should make sure is there for the future, it is really helpful.

    Yeah, I guess by "inept" he means providing for free an expansion that would be a paying DLC in most other games. They are indeed "inept" at earning money... kinda...

    Yeah, so many people not even playing the game, and who never actually even bought it, know so much more about it than those who are actually playing... it's really amazing.
    But we are on the Internet... where everyone is a lawyer, developer, MD, rocket scientist, etc... so why not a New World specialist, too.

    After years of dealing with the Smedster, I can say without doubt that is not him.

    And not saying their names is smart. So when whatever they say is coming don't come, noone can blame them personally.

    I'm okay with the roadmap but I was hoping they would have introduced a new weapon at least..... I would still like them to add weapon combos like.... spear and shield and hatchet and shield.

    The roadmap doesn't even detail many other changes that are also in the works, They are also continuing with the lower-level zone revamps and even mention Brightwood and Weaver's Fen as being the next two in that video.

    Many things that have improved the game since last fall are not even big-ticket items that are roadmap headliners. Things like the fast travel azoth cap, and the removal of stagger mechanics from many mobs' attacks don't get the hype but are actually more impactful to the game experience than many of the things that get featured.

    Friend of mine in our guild suggested they could make pet taming a skill, which could be applied to all of the many animals found in the land.

    If they ever add mounts, I hope it will be that way.

    A mix between Ultima Online and Black Desert would be awesome !

    That sniffs of "survival" mechanics games, but to be honest it is one of the things which we should see more of in MMOs. My only caveat would be if there is a "pet class", as long as you don't have one of those why not make it a skill?

    I returned after they made the new freshstart servers. And in regards to the xp:

    I am currently lvl 57, has not completed my mainstory, and there are litterally quests everywhere now. whenever you go into a new zone and do a quest, many more will pop up in the same zone. i had 1 quest to cutlass keys, but when i got there and turned it in, 4 yeloow quests popped up, and it kept in like this in every zone so far, i have left zones wiht more than 4-6 yelllow markers im ignoring in each zone.
    apparently you cant abandon them, so i see yellow everywhere, a bit too much even. but nice its there.

    They have also made a music system. which buff players if they tip, and i can okay the song well enough. quite fun indeed.

    Alot has changed, but it is still the same game. it does seem the devs are going in the direction of filling the "sandbox" with more "features/discrete changes. /(like the speedrun buff you get now for running on roads) all in all, i have enjoyed it much more than exspected, and must admit...
    i havent even logged in to try the new wow xpac. im simply having more fun in new world now. than i did before.

    There are no classes in New World hence why I mentioned it being added as a new skill which anyone could train up in if they chose to.

    It would be a bit challenging to create properly, probably have to be limited to certain animal types, say large carnivores else people would be trying to utilize their attack bunnies of death or something else silly.

    Could be cool to add as a mount taming skill as well that could be given to everyone as was mentioned by @The_Korrigan
