Earlier today the team over on the official New World forum published a post titled ‘Temporarily Disabling All Forms of Wealth Transfers‘ within the thread they explained that due to recent gold exploitations a.k.a gold dupe which New World players may or may not have experienced, the official team has turned off all forms of the economy including the following:
- Trading Posts (you can no longer purchase items from trading posts whilst the wealth transfer is disabled)
- Player to player trading
- Guild Treasury
- Sending and receiving currency
For players like myself, who simply log on to realize you are no longer able to purchase items from the trading posts, you will find the following notification appear on the screen.
Trading Post Bug a.k.a Coin Disabled
I know, I know… anyone who logs in to New World will be panicking (as I was) thinking oh no, not another bug, the trading post is broken!
Do not fear, you are not alone – below is the official statement from the New World team.
We are aware of a possible gold duplication exploit that has been circling and we are temporarily disabling all forms of wealth transfer between players (ie. sending currency, guild treasury, trading post, player to player trading).
Any player that has engaged in the use of this exploit will be actioned against.
Once the gold duplication exploit has been investigated and we are ready to turn on wealth transfer again, we will update this post.
Unfortunately, the official statement doesn’t shed much light on how long this process will take and when the wealth transfer functionality will be enabled. I for one hope it isn’t too long, since I am a keen trader!
Let’s hope they also fix the constant global messaging spam… wishful thinking, I know.
I am also curious what this means for ongoing taxes, such as house tax, is this also disabled whilst wealth transfer is disabled? We’ve reached out to the New World team but have yet to receive a response.
For now, though, I will simply get back to the grind.
