New World trading is disabled again thanks to item duplication exploit number…oh it feels like we’re in the double digits by now. In a post on the official forums, Amazon confirmed that trading has been disabled due to a duplication exploit currently being utilized across the game’s servers. The post promises that action is being taken against the perpetrators including suspension and permanent bans as well as removal of the duplicated items from the economy.
Good luck with that. The full statement is below for your viewing pleasure.
We are aware of a bug that duplicates items and is currently being taken advantage of across various servers. While we work on a fix, we are disabling all forms of wealth transfers temporarily.
We are actively monitoring and can detect players using this exploit, and are taking action against them. As a reminder, any player taking advantage of this exploit will be penalised for violating our Code of Conduct.
We will provide an update when we have additional information.
Thank you for your understanding.
