We are excited to share some of the details that we have been working on to attempt to provide and support an official OTG presence on one of the New World “Fresh Start” servers that will be released on November 2nd.
We are forging ahead with something new but are also familiar with this effort. We are going to approach this similarly to what we did in “Lost Ark”. We will initially create an OTG company on the Fresh Start server that either @Sonickat (NW XO) or myself will govern, for now.
We are actively looking for interested individuals who plan to make Fresh Start their new home and who would be willing to help us handle invites on the Fresh Start server. These NCOs will serve as the point persons for the chapter and can go through myself or Sonickat with questions, concerns, etc.
We are planning to create limited fresh-start Discord channels to help keep conversations appropriately organized and we will be updating pinned information on Discord and chapter information on the forums to corroborate these changes.
Looking ahead, sometime after thirty days we will see where we are in regards to interest and then at that point decide on the possibility of making the “Fresh Start” presence into its own NW sub-chapter, similar to how WoW/WoW Classic is laid out.
We think this “casual, laid-back company” plan gives OTG members a place to commiserate and the necessary support and tools to do so while allowing us to gauge the long-term potential for this Fresh Start presence.
@Kelryth has already volunteered to be an NCO. Thanks, Kel! We could use one or two more. If you are so inclined let me or Sonickat know.
Thanks for your patience and we will see you in the “Fresh” New World!
When will Fresh Start servers be available?
AGS announced on 10/6/2022 that they will release Fresh Start servers on November 2nd. More details are expected to be released soon™.
What is planned for the current companies on Orefena?
The existing companies and leadership will remain intact and plans to continue to remain active in New World. The Fresh Start presence is meant to service those individuals whom have indicated they would prefer a fresh start on one of the newly announced fresh start servers. The plan is for the existing community to continue to be fully supported by OTG and it’s current NW staff.
Which fresh start server will we be on?
AGS has not yet released the actual server plans for fresh start. All we know right now is there will be one per region at least. The ability to join our OTG presence on fresh start may be contingent on being able to be online and create a character on a specific server on NOV 2nd before it becomes full and locked. We hope AGS doesn’t approach this as a open more as the planned servers become full but that is how they have handled server expansion the last few months. We encourage you to make personal preparations to ensure your able to join us if this is how AGS proceeds.
