Queue times in New World Amazon Games’ newest title have been astronomical. I personally have not had a position in a queue over 400 but have heard of positions over 1000. Now there have been updates from the New World development team that will address this in the future. Such as allowing players to take characters to less populated servers but that does not have a sure date as of now. Also, one thing players worry about is being kicked for idling too long or going AFK (away from keyboard) in the game. I have seen numbers such as 15 minutes also that it could be avoided by sprinting even emoting. All of these are false.
Feeling curious, I captured my gameplay in order to verify for myself how long you can go AFK. The results are as follows. After about 20 minutes of being AFK, you will receive a warning message with a 5 min timer. The message title is “Are You Still Playing?” and that’s when the final countdown to long line city begins. Make sure if you’re going to grab a snack or run a quick errand that you do it in under 20 minutes. Give yourself enough wiggle room to avoid the sometimes hours (yes, as in plural) queue times.

Personally, the wait times have not been bad enough for me to want to start a new character. If I had less time to actually play it would be a serious issue.
