    I'm curious what everyone is going to start out as first? I'm leaning into musket but not sure what to pair with that. I have always like the idea of a gun-wielding magician though.

    Classic mistake!
    You can cross your fingers all day and hope there will be no server queues but having looked into my crystal ball of gaming (also known as thinking back to every big release MMO land has known) I will predict that we will have an article on here titled something like "New World launches, Huge Server Queues!".

    Doing a blind jump in on launch day with no previous knowledge for better or worse. Worst case scenario I waste $40.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    Yeah you are probably right however, this case is a little different than most I think.  Amazon AWS reputation is on the line.  I mean if they cant do this without problems then who can.  Big companies wanting to use AWS will look at this if they ever want to do a huge launch.  So yeah probably some servers will have queues not because Amazon cant handle them, but because everyone will try to jam into only a few servers, but the low pop servers will probably be fine.  Seemed that way in Beta's at least.  Guess we will see, if Amazon will crash like all the rest.

    I’m just looking forward to having something to consistently log into each day.  Maybe get bored after a few months, but the 28th can’t get here fast enough!
    I#m definitely using New World to hold me over until Lost Ark Western Release and FF14 Endwalker.  :D

    I really don't see their reputation being on the line from launch day server queues, these days the same gaming journalists who do a dramatic headline about the queues will put something like "as we always see" in the article.

    I hope you are right, but I think you are overly optimistic; I will leave you with one word that MMOs never had to used to have to deal with on launch day...Streamers.

    Well, the nice people of the guild I've met during beta will go Marauder, so will I.

    Is that how you found a group?


    I thought about that, then I thought I'd wait until I found a server, and would then work on finding a company that I liked. I realize it's been quite a while since I've even looked (call it 7 years at least....) 
    There is a company recruiting section in the New World reddit and there is a recruitment channel in the New Worlders discord.

    I'm definitely in the "wait and see" category.  It just takes too much effort to be hyped about a game; it is the best path to follow if I'm interested in throwing money away (again).  I'm not in a financial situation to be wasting money on games I may not even like.  NW might be a great game, but it's PvP roots put severe 'will I like it' doubts in my mind.

    Totally hyped, can't wait to finally create my real character !
    I'm just hoping I can get my character made and leveled up to pick a faction and join my Company before my wife drags me out the door :smile:


    What faction is the best?

    Syndicate ofc.

    Marauders are military communists/warmongers....

    Covenant are religious wacko/zealots/nutjobs.....

    Syndicate a secretive organization of boundless guile and intellect in search of forbidden knowledge to usher in a new age of enlightenment.

    :D

    Trying to figure out where you got the "communist" part from...
    Yeah that was a weird comment. You actually need to do some thinking to decide between communism and capitalism. This typically goes right over the head of Marauders.

    Okay so I watched a fair amount of videos and decided to buy this game. I got somewhat of a 'The Secret World' vibe from the game, both from how the lore is developed and game mechanics, which I liked. 

    These days an MMO gotta offer a lot to keep my attention away from my long queue of single-player games.

    Absolute zero hype. But I'll lurk and see how it goes.

    I was really hoping Crowfall would stick, it had some core game mechanics i like better but since everyone will be playing this i will happy play this with my friends.
