New World: Players kill their characters to travel fast

New World players are using a particular method to travel faster, which is to have their characters commit suicide.

Some players of New World they are intentionally by killing their characters to be able to travel faster in the vast game world of the Amazon Games MMO.

In New World, there are no mounts, or “mounts” for friends, thanks to which you can travel quickly from one part of the map to the other. On the other hand, there is a function for the fast travel, but it has limitations. First, it can only be activated at a shrine or settlement. In addition, a certain quantity of the Azoth resource is needed, the cost of which varies based on distance, the faction that controls the territory and the weight of the equipment. Alternatively, fast travel can be used to return to the last inn where check-in was done, but only once an hour.

As Gamespot reports, due to these limitations, some players have now got into the habit of having their character commit suicide rather than wasting time on long treks or wasting resources. In fact, if you die you will automatically return to your base camp (if within 500 meters) or the nearest settlement.

Dying in New World however reduces the durability of players’ equipment and repairs obviously come at a cost. However, it is a sacrifice that many are apparently willing to make in the name of efficiency.

This tricksy is obviously a symptom that something in the fast travel system isn’t working as it should, so it’s not out of the question that the developers at Amazon Games will make some tweaks to the mechanics.

Meanwhile, New World has already reached one million players on day one alone, with Amazon Games promising the arrival of transfers between servers.
