Amazon Games is performing another New World server maintenance window, this time addressing the issues affecting the server list and the character screen. Furthermore, several servers across the world are going specifically under maintenance to tackle several issues affecting specific realms. You can find the information on the New World maintenance for October 1 here.
New World server maintenance October 1
The New World server maintenance is targeting the small inconvenience that has affected the character screen and server list issues. Many players have reported that their character stays at level 1 on their server, but retain all their stats on the server when they get back on, showing there is a sync issue between the character screen and the server itself.
Furthermore, some players are not finding their character on the character screen at all, or it takes some time to appear correctly. The new World maintenance should address the issues so that players can accurately see their characters before getting in-game. The same goes for selecting servers on the server browser. The maintenance is underway and should not affect anyone in the login queue.
Note. this only seems to be an issue for most of the congested servers. Given the login queue loads and the more recent login error code, it could have a connection.
Also, several European and Australian servers went down for maintenance, such ass big servers Annwynn and Hades in the EU. However, at the time of writing, those were only short servers restarts and are live once again.
