It seems fishing isn't quite as relaxing an activity in New World as it is in real life, as some players are having a rough time because of the bot fish-demic and other players' reactions to it.
We've already seen the deluge of fishing bots that arrived in New World and their superior skills, but we also saw how players dealt with them, reporting them and pulling mobs to kill them, like we can see here. However, some of these bot-reactions have started affecting actual players! Pulling mobs like in the above example will kill bots, as they just sit there and continue to fish, and while it might seem like it wouldn't be a problem for real players, it actually does interrupt their current pull and is generally very annoying and frustrating when it keeps on happening and, well, they're not too happy about it:
As also mentioned in the above post, the MUCH bigger issue is the reporting side of things, as players are just spam-reporting anyone they think is a fishing bot, which for some is basically all fishermen in a particular area. This has actually already seemingly caused at least one unjust permaban (although obviously we can't be sure the below is true), leading to dramatic warnings like this:
The bigger issue with the second post is already a massive topic of discussion in the New World community, as the reporting system and following bans (whether permanent or the 24-hour kind) is being perceived to be very automated. Amazon have stated that that isn't the case several times now, but many players are not believing those statements, especially with the chat-related mass reporting resulting in 1-day bans:
It seems the topic is going to require some additional attention from Amazon Games, even if they are giving each report its due attention, as players are just not believing some of these bans are being reviewed properly. Meanwhile, fishing is becoming more and more frustrating, all because bots have infested it and now real players are suffering the consequences, so it really is a bit of a lose-lose situation!
