In the past, nearly every MMO that has been released has experienced server issues during its rocky launch. Bringing a massively multiplayer online game to market has proven to be a difficult task. A large number of the issues with New World are not simply server-side issues; players have discovered a number of issues that need to be addressed within the game's own internal structure. New World's initial release caused significant problems for some users who had high-end graphics cards at the time of the game's initial release. It was discovered that users of the EVGA RTX 3090 GPU were experiencing card crashes, rendering their cards completely inoperable, when the game's beta version was made available.
Despite the fact that the game was officially released on September 28th, some reports indicate that the game is still experiencing this issue. After playing New World, a large number of PowerGPU users have reported that their GPUs have stopped functioning. According to EVGA, the EVGA RTX 3090 is not the only GPU to have been affected; the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti has also become a common victim, as has the EVGA RTX 3090.
As part of its overall management of a large server network for its AWS web hosting service, which is available to anyone, Amazon also hosts New World on servers that are owned and operated by the corporation. The expectation among players was that the game would have few to no issues with queue times because Amazon theoretically had as many servers as were required ready and waiting to be utilized.
According to the company, players are still experiencing long queues on popular servers more than a week after the incident occurred, despite the fact that the incident occurred. In fact, the issue has plagued nearly every MMO launch to date, and New World was not exempt from the curse, as it turned out.
