Does maximize ad rotation disadvantage new ads?

I have been asked to audit an Adwords AdGroup and to pause or update underperforming ads.

 

However, when I checked the ad rotation settings, I noticed it's set to "optimize for clicks: Show ads expected to provide more clicks."

 

My question is, if this setting prioritizes ads that have more impressions, won't new ads get left behind. After all, a new ad enters the AdWorld world impressionless.

 

 

Thanks

The new ads will get a chance to "show performance" and if successful (i.e are clicked) they will be shown more often.

The new ads will be given a chance, but in my experience often not enough chance. I always change the settings to rotate evenly with new campaigns or when I have added new ads. Once they have run for a few weeks, I change it back to optimise for clicks or optimise for conversions (preferable, as conversions are the ultimate goal if you are measuring them).
