  1. This auction is probably closed as Khellus has made arrangements concerning an issue he commented on in the OP. /Enki (Head Game Master)
  2. This auction is probably closed. Khellus can update as he has made arrangements with some or all of the items listed here. /Enki (Head Game Master)
  3. ATTENTION! This is not a rule update. This is simply a friendly reminder to anyone tempted by the illegal use of macros in Wurm Online. Update - typo correction 'behaviour' - 'behavior'
  4. I will apologize fort he willows... that was not my intention. I receive nothing but complaints about the Chaos HoTA. I have come close to pulling it from Chaos as not working as intended. But for now I have dropped a new HoTA and have removed 90% of the trees that were added. We have discussed a number of options for varying it and livening the HoTA up a bit, so if you see a thousand trolls descending on you, that was probably my suggestion.
  5. Greetings and Happy Festivations! This last year has been a long and dusty road, but we have made it through and are preparing to tackle a new one. At this time we start beating out all that dust we have picked up on the trail over the last year and need to close out some of the rockier parts of the old year. I refer directly to the Niru incident. Officially, we are done with this individual and all of the accounts and items that were associated with the individual are and always have been the property of Code Club AB and may be used, dispensed, or removed at Code Club AB's discretion as defined in the EULA that everyone agrees to upon playing Wurm Online. After a long period of open claims being taken in by forum thread and forum pm has finally passed I have decided to finally begin closing this chapter. First, a handful of claimants who lost items and properly noted their losses to us when asked will receive items that we were able to seize in Niru's possession. You will not receive all of your item losses, only those we were able to successfully show were yours. Second, we will be conducting an auction on all of the items that were seized with no proper claim received for. This will start with a listing of items for overview, and then after a week, an auction/s will commence. Third, all of those who lost silvers in transaction with Niru and properly posted a claim in the forum thread or forum pm will receive a percentage of their losses back. The proceeds from the auction will be returned in percentage to those with silver related losses. I cannot stress enough not to get hopeful and expect a full recompense. This is not a reimbursement and I am not setting any new precedent as this is normal procedure for us to attempt to return losses seized in regards to scams. I will not entertain any attempts to apply this situation to other cases in an attempt to retrieve long lost items or accounts. This was a special case of scamming and is in no way similar to other cases such as bans due to rule violations. Thank you, Enki (Head Game Master)
  6. SO all these changes.... are to bring pvp back right? JKE on the Elevation server have been pushing for changes to make more pvp.... so on the very first or second day these new guys from freedom were trying to build a deed.... and solar/ausimus came over and asked to be on their mine door and then metagamed them. killed the tower guards.... told them they had to run from rome (it was just orlaz) you can clearly see in this video they took last night of the whole thing... I'm sure you have heard about this from other ca's this is NosFirebird level crap. and if its not breaking a rule.... it SHOULD be... change the rules. stop this metagame stuff.... the 2 of them could have just attacked and possibly won but they had to bring ausimus up... 2 kings... moon metal.... champion.... and they are bullying these guys on their first days? they just got the accounts and came over from freedom? like really? 

     

    This isn't just unfair this is like cheating. and these guys are now talking about quitting and going to unlimited or back to freedom or something. not because they died but cos of the way it happened. cant you guys like make it so if enemies are in local same kingdom cant hurt each other or something?

      You do know I'm not a champ right? You know there wasn't a token right? You know you can kill your own kingdom right? What tokens were drained and by what players? Settlement history should tell you. Report if they were meta gaming to drain; Nothing to do with us. The 2 alone didn't get anybody to below healthy. You aren't a pvper as you claim yet you are talking as if you know what wins a pvp fight. :huh:

      Sounds like another story made up among many in the past to make yourself look like a victim. You said meta gaming is bad but it's ok for LED to keep spy alts on his deed? On a home server where meta gaming rules apply?

      I think you should try and learn lore of kingdoms and the mechanics which are available to take the things you complain about but yet want to change. Kingdom Convert is one of them.

      Also you were given the chance/had the chance to join this group and you flipped out back in the day and left on your own accord.. I think you're forgetting details, none of which don't need to be posted on Enkis forum page? :)

      as for threats:

      "If you wish to escalate problems and drama... I'm more active than any of you. I'm not even playing league anymore. I'm all here.  Like i told daryl.... if he takes away the way i play games every day.... the grind... or my villagers.... it only makes me want to do him harm" - KrisWald.

      Your whole argument seems to be "don't do this, you do that" but your reply says the same for yourself.. 

      Also your messages should be pm'd to Enki as he's more likely to read it.

      What excactly is the problem with killing thiefs and controlling our territory? You know you can fight for it too right? We have over 25 active accounts that will play epic once there is a reason to; That doesn't give you the right to come into our territory we fought for, deed where you want and grief areas we've created as you want. I think you're living in a seperate server still, pal.

      Edit; Orlaz might have gone lower than healthy? Not sure; I was there to kill a group related to theives and wasn't looking at his health. I left the loot and rode off before orlaz killed me :ph34r::ph34r:

      I don't have spy alts Mclovin, I'm not interested in Epic pvp and how you cooperate with Rome kingdom since a long time now. Giving me as an argument for metagaming seems utterly wrong after how you guys made me quit JK few years ago by attacking me without warning and taking my things from corpse of mine in pack.

  7. I am glad to see one of your members posting this information for public awareness. Everyone should be aware of the dangers of potentially fake sites, phishing sites, and redirectors.. etc. Always keep a check on the address of the sites you visit, whether they relate to Wurm Online, it's fan sites, or any site for that matter. Be sure, be secure, and be safe when browsing the internet. /Enki (Head Game Master)
  8. ALL HAIL ENKI, WARDEN OF WURM

  9. Freedomites, Epicurians, Chaotians lend me your vocabularic comprehension! Hear ye hear ye! In the year of our lords and dark demoness' 1062 the peoples of the Wurm realms have been subjected to a vile plague that threatens our populations. Our top priests have identified the source of this scourge and have given it a name. Toxic Player Syndrome. They also recommended ostracizing the infected vermin from our sewers. Toxic Player Syndrome is a social plague spread through contact with contaminated ink used primarily when inscribing documents in far away lands. We do not support the use of documents outside our realm, or far away lands for that matter. Still, this plague washed up on our shores and threatened to infect our peoples with no regard of nobility or cleanliness. Victims of the plague may exhibit symptoms such as bloodshot eyes, unusual facial hair growth, clumps of hair missing from head, loud voices in unusual octaves, and uncontrollable bouts of cursing and screaming. Our healers will do their best to reach your afflicted ones and provide treatment or carts to haul off those who have achieved a pungent stature. Remember to bathe no less than once per year to ward off these foreign borne maladies. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Plague Carriers of 1062 Mechanic Dingov Mattown ...some other people for other reasons just for the heck of it. (because they needed to be removed!) ------------------------------ For the rest of the universe! Greetings Wurmians! During Wurm year 1062 someone thought it would be oh so funny to breach the access of accounts of our members by violating the security of their private forums. We have identified the culprits and are removing them and others from Wurm Online as to protect our community from these unscrupulous individuals. This violation occurred through resources not connected to Wurm Online or its services and there has been no breach of our security, but this is an attack on our active players and we will not willingly tolerate this kind of behavior. If you have shared your accounts with these individuals we strongly urge you to secure those accounts as Wurm Online and Code Club AB are not liable for losses incurred from account sharing which we do not offer support with. We are doing our best to help the affected individuals regain their accounts and items so that they may continue with their lives. Appeals of shared account bans will be processed normally for review. Appeals of those directly connected to the violations will not even be entertained. Thank you, Team Wurm Online P.S. Some feel that we should have stopped PVP in Wurm Online due to this situation that occurred against one of our pmk kingdoms. I would like to bring a touch of clarity as to why this was not done. This occurred due to a 3rd party system that we have no control or support for and was ran by players and was their sole responsibility. It would have been a horrible precedent to interfere with the proper operations of Wurm Online for such a thing. We have options that do not require us to cancel a vital component of Wurm Online on knee-jerk reactions. We have also noticed that there is also misinformation spreading among players about our actions as moderators. The facts are simple. The damage was done even before the affected could alert us. We as moderators have not been sitting idly by and letting these "cheaters" "get away with it". We searched for the lost items and as soon as we could we confiscated them. I hope that at least clears up a bit of the misinformation. ------------------------------ For those who find themselves banned! Greetings Earthanoidal creature! We will not play these games with you. You have done something vile and reprehensible that we will not stand by and tolerate. We will not entertain the notion that metagaming access to other player's accounts is acceptable behavior. We do our best to provide an entertaining and encouraging environment in which to spend your time with us and our members. You have gone beyond acceptable social behaviors and committed acts that are both illegal and deplorable. Do not expect any personal correspondence with us as you know very well what you did and why you have earned your bans! Some of you are banned due to the recent attack on one of our player made kingdoms in a pvp environment via metagaming, and some of you are no longer welcome in Wurm Online for the consistent bad behavior and gaming of the system to avoid penalties. Do not expect any personal correspondence with us as you know very well what you did and why you have earned your bans! We will gladly continue on without your metagaming and abuse of our system. Good Bye, Team Wurm Online
  10. We are well aware that we have a lot of very creative individuals among us, and sometimes something interesting is discovered that needs to be fixed right away. Unfortunately, some people think it is okay not to report these anomalous situations that can be exploited for their own gains. This is deplorable behavior and takes the enjoyment out of the situation for the rest of us. We have clear rules when it comes to cheating and exploiting and the penalties you will receive. We even have rewards for the first to report serious bugs to us. Situations do arise that a very few decide they would rather exploit it for all its worth before reporting. It is sad really, but we will find out about it. Mechanics abuse means we spend more time running around after abusers like babysitting toddlers rather than devoting our time to PVP improvements. This will not be an all inclusive list of known exploits, but listed here or not, we retain the right to remove anyone from Wurm Online who our logs and information show exploited any given situation with malice or intent to gain. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A current bug still to be corrected involves battlecamps. Someone/s has found a way to conquer without sending alerts across the server. This is an exploit. Stop it! Another annoying bug that has been abused is entering secured mines without going though the entrance/mine door properly. This is an exploit. Stop it! ________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Some sage wisdom.... "if you have to ask whether something is an exploit, perhaps it's not something you should be doing"
  11. Hey Enki, I was wondering if you could tell me whether or not macros are allowed in wurm online? lmao

  12. Update - The last few days have brought in a lot of ideas and situations that have muddied the waters concerning this W.S.A. Let me try to explain what this announcement is referring to. We are targeting situations that basically allow you to gain skills indefinitely without your interaction. Most situations already have limits in place to prevent indefinite skill gain without player interaction. Wurm Online is a sandbox with a multitude of mechanics that can present situations that have possibly not been considered before that could create an unknown "sweet spot" where neither the attacker or attackee are able to interact properly as intended mechanics are being blocked or bypassed using other mechanics in ways that are clearly not intended. We have been presented a number of fighting scenarios to consider and the best guide that I can provide at the moment is that if you can gain skill doing it with no interaction for indefinite periods of time then it is not intended. You should not be able to gain skill at normal levels after so many actions or time has transpired without you needing to interact with the game world to continue your skill gains. Interactions should include needing to repair armor and weapons, heal , or heal animals, or having to do other actions to gain skill. (this is not an exhaustive list of all potential interactions!)
  13. It is possible to devise scenarios with unintended methods to enter combat with creatures that prevent them from being able to do normal harm to you and your equipment, or prevent yourself from doing normal intended harm to them. Such scenarios are clearly not intended and can lead to the permanent ban of your avatars when caught using such a method. This type of scenario allows someone to create a situation in which they can gain fighting skills by bypassing intended mechanics that should cause harm to your avatar health or the creature, damage to your weapons and armor, and allow long term and potentially unattended skill gain activity. Several people have been caught and penalized for this activity in the past and recently several others were penalized after the activity was detected. If you ever encounter a scenario like this or ANY scenario of unattended skill gain with or without the use of a macro, you should report it so it can be promptly looked into and officially replicated for testing and correction. Thank you, Wurm Online Team
  14. Full PVP Ban for September 19-20th 2016 is now lifted. You may now resume your regularly scheduled clog dance. Thank you, Team Wurm Online
  15. Here we go again folks. A new situation has come up causing players under certain conditions to become invulnerable to fighting. Until this is fixed we are issuing a Full PVP Ban immediately. Please observe the PVP Ban directives during this time until otherwise stated. http://forum.wurmonline.com/index.php?/topic/137025-pvpraid-ban-directives/ Thank you, Team Wurm Online
