  1. The pve/pvp situation was there in beta, and reared it's ugly head near the last beta map. Rolf didn't like the decision to split servers into pve/pvp as it was their sole intention to have one server during gold. People were pretty vocal about wanting a pve-only server. There were angry posts and threads years before this event. This was just a way to try and bring back that original vision, in a very, extremely, poor implementation. It's pretty much how Wurm works: good initial idea generation that's never given strategic thought, and then implemented with piss poor execution. Nothing changes.
  2. He reverted the changes after the forums exploded with hatred against it. I do not remember a poll, but more of a 'refresh' with a bigger map to likely draw in more players. Most people gave up, or just moved closer to the south coast with ships loaded with their junk. Imagine this, pre-BSB/FSB.
  3. It was a blast. I remember those coming from Wild (chaos) had a severe fighting penalty, and all it would have taken is some 50+ fighters to clean house, or even some heavy guards (old deed system). Of course everyone just grabbed their stuff and logged off.
  4. Since my post was removed.... There is harm asking silly/stupid questions, unless you really cannot comprehend simple mechanics. You do understand when you create any product (including software development) that not everything has to have a linear path right? Maybe it's possible someone wanted a randomness to butchering products tied to skill, years and years ago? Maybe the recent changes have nothing to do with that said implementation and person years ago? Maybe changing it would imbalance the system and piss more customers off? Maybe you cant understand any of this? I forgot i better add a few of THESE.
  5. New to the game? Have a town that needs to supply your new members with enchanted skillers? Have a few coopers to spare for a deal?

  6. This guy is my hero, +100000 for this change. WAIT!! There's MORE! For every change this guy promotes, expect a 5% subscriber loss...FREE!
  7. I agree that no decisions should be made public for the 'customer' to dictate. The problem is that for you to make these proper decisions and implement them in a development environment (especially gaming), you need to have customer insights that translate into business direction and goals. User-driven development right? In this case, it is simply not true, and the original post (and others like it) shouldn't even exist. The fact it was a presented discussion, went through some sort of communication, ended up here, and then backtracked is endemic of serious knowledge gaps in the overall process.
  8. I'm dancing around terminology that some would call 'dev-bashing', but in my reality, are called management principles and effective language. change management..
  9. There's no abuse, or any real thought process beyond: The Game is the Game is the Game is the Game. There's a long line of posts like this, warnings or patches, and otherwise very short-sighted and non-beneficial changes that affect bottom line negatively. I honestly believe decisions are made by gamers first, and nothing more. Really thinking about it, the costs involved in taking the time to 'discuss' something of which offers absolutely no business value and then proceed to further increase the vitriolic attitudes of your customer base is very foolish and amateurish. Almost always in the real world, things of this nature go through a filter. Until these attitudes change, and things like this stop happening, I'd expect the negative counts of everything to continue. There's a lot more to this, with it both simple and complex, but i actually get paid to do this. So good luck. <3 wurm.
  10. Cool. Shaz's Score: Client Feedback: Negative PR Effectiveness : N/A Alternative value-added content : None Business value : None
  11. You seem to think that the subscription is the main problem for lack of growth. Herein is your extremely naive and incorrect assumption. You also seem to be completely devoid of any business knowledge or sense, and offer little of value beyond "F2P experiements PLZ!!!". Then again, 99% of these threads in this forum are absolute garbage. Sorry, but this is no exception.
