I'm addicted to the subreddit for Amazon's new MMORPG, New World. The delusion levels there about the state of the game are off the charts.

Some gems:

Apparently poor graphical performance and disturbing lack of endgame content are "irrelevant concerns."

"Being logged into the game" was touted as viable endgame content. No I am not making this up. In the interest of honesty, I am paraphrasing. What was actually said was, "Spending time in the game world, because it's beautiful."

Apparently one of the purposes of the game is "exploration," despite the fact that there is literally nothing to find.

Having a total of six skills, which you'll unlock nearly immediately, somehow makes the game's skill ceiling...higher? Because obviously having virtually no tools at your disposal creates a deeper gameplay experience.
