Amazon’s New World accidentally made its player’s rich on gold before rolling back its EU servers

Amazon Games has just pushed back New World’s Central EU server by several hours after unintentionally awarding up to 300,000 gold to some players.

The rewind was announced following a lengthy maintenance period during which the entire system was taken offline a few hours after the gold was paid out. According to the development team, the payout was initially intended as a catch-up for those who had lost money due to in-game taxation.

“After our patch early this morning, a separate database modification in EU was executed to grant catch-up funds for players affected by in-game tax losses since the November feature release,” developer Lane wrote in a forum post. “This database change mistakenly granted very large sums not reflective of the intended amounts.”

Those who had more cash with them, as predicted, spent it, frequently buying significant amounts of products from the trade station, according to Lane. While the team investigated possible solutions, Lane stated that the only option was to roll the server back to right before the database update went live.

While the servers are presently operational, the trading post has been disabled because that specific database takes longer to refresh.

“We are already in progress on this work but don’t yet know the full time required,” Lane explained. “Once complete, all of the contracts will be restored and the trading post will reopen. This will not require a patch but may need a brief restart.”

Amazon Games stated that anyone who transferred immediately before the server downtime may be experiencing a “character restore failure” error, which the team is presently attempting to resolve.
