The New World Regains the Trading Post
New World has been suffering from a gold doubling problem for a while, and Amazon has taken increasingly stringent measures to try to counter it. Recently, the developers finally reset the Trading Post again, allowing New World players to transfer gold once again.
The gold duplication bug was first noticed after New World started allowing characters to transfer servers. The bug allowed players to effectively double gold by sending it to a character who was unaffected by the glitch, logging out, and logging back in to find the shipped gold still present in the faulty character inventory. Server transfers were quickly suspended while developers worked to counter the flaw, but it proved more difficult to remove than some expected. According to a recent post on the New World forums, the gold hoax problem has been fixed; At least the version of the gold hoax bug that was applied to Trade Publications has been fixed. New World players have faced multiple different versions of the bug since October, so this may not be the end of the bug. Regardless, players can be happy to know that New Worlds trading posts are once again open to the public.
This is not the only technical problem that has seriously affected the New World, but it may be one of the most far-reaching. The gold hoax failure has directly led to both server and trading post transfers being temporarily shut down, which appears to have left many players frustrated. Although New World has encountered many issues since its launch, the gold hoax flaw has affected players' ability to upgrade settlements and trade with each other, as well as closing the trading post for maintenance.
As of this writing, it appears that all related maintenance has ended in each of the game's regions, meaning that players can properly reuse their genuine gold. Players who exploited the gold hoax glitch have reportedly been banned, though it is unclear if this extends to players who received duplicate gold intentionally from other players who already used the glitch and wanted to take away enemies or passersby. with them. Whatever the case, the Golden Trick Bug is unlikely to be the latest bug to seriously affect New World players. Some players have asked New World developers pointed questions, particularly regarding server lag and how the glitches are changing the way AOE abilities work.
