Mm_connerr_rep_timeout error explained
The mm_connerr_rep_timeout is a connection error code you get in New World when there are problems with Steam. Part of the login verification process for New World relies on Steam being active for it to work. You can see this in examples like New World and Steam connection when looking for Twitch Drops or prime gaming loot.
So, what happens when Steam goes offline? Well, New World by proxy has login issues. If you’re already on the server, chances are you won’t get hit with the issue. However, if you’re trying o get into the game while Steam is down, you’ll encounter this error.
One of the windows that you’ll experience this issue is during the Steam weekly maintenance. Steam maintenance typically occurs on Tuesdays, taking place from 6-7 ET. So, if you’re trying to get in-game at that time, you’ll likely run into issues all over Steam, never mind in New World.
If you find you’re getting this error, you can only do it to wait it out. Normally Steam server issues never last that long, planned or unplanned. If it’s planned outage, you’ll only have to wait a max of an hour – if that.
