AGS, you need to unlock the servers. Far too many people can’t play with their friends due to an abrupt and poor decision by whom ever. Poor decisions have already lead to the complete death of New World, don’t do it to another game.
The people, and correct me if i’m wrong below, would much rather wait in a queue if it meant being able to play with their friends. New players without friends on servers will likely go to a server without a queue and therefore not compound the issue.
Comment below if you would rather wait in a queue if it meant playing with friends.
