New World status as of 8am PST 9/28?

I updated my drivers and downloaded the game. I tried to launch it after 8am PST today. I see a
game screen but no status information. I can’t use the"STOP" button. After several tries it says I’ve
been in game 110 minutes but I haven’t seen anything change on the game screen. Are the servers
that backed up, am I doing something wrong or do I need to try again later? Based on what I’ve
read, I want to join the OTG Sigma group. What server is that going to be on?
Thanks for the help.

First you’ll want to get full membership here in the community. After you have full membership here you will be able to see the private member’s forums and the information will be available to you.

Here’s the place to start: Before You Apply… Things to Know

Generally speaking, any information you need to know about joining one of our game chapters can be found in the Chapter Information section for that game. While Chapter Information is available to guest accounts, applying to the chapter isn’t, but @juulz has given you the info you need to remedy that.

Hope to see you soon!

Thank you
