Dunno if this calls for it's own thread in this sub-forum to be honest, but it is vaguely Wurm-related. Mods please move it if you feel it's not warranted. ;)

So after spent about an hour on the Test server (and first time in the game for over a year) to test out the new 'Wurm 1.0' features, I recognised this name identical to the old Wurm developer that logged in to my local at the starting area... Interested, I went and followed him around a bit.

(note that I crashed a few times while taking screenshots)

Spoiler


I don't know if anyone can log in under any name on the test server or if existing account names are spoken for...
All I can say is that he acted more or less as I would have expected him to, asking about the new features and some coding specifics (also note me talking to him in Swedish and him answering in English). He had just logged off the server before I left about an hour ago. Imposter or not? You decide.

Impostor. Anyone can log in as any name on test so long as that account has been inactive for long enough and therefore has been deleted from the test server.

I do not see why he wouldn't check it out, considering the jump wurm is taking.

I say, Plausible.

I bet he has been playing Wurm all along and you know it! Perhaps you even know who is is. He is just hiding among the crowds somewhere...

He speaks perfect English... he used to get on random popular Minecraft servers and talk to people and interact with them. Do you guys think he believes he is too good for peons like us?

Nah, I think he just realized that if he shows his face thousands of minecraft fanboys will swarm the forum. I understand actually.

Well darn it, if so. No 'Notchslayer' for me. :rolleyes:

The reason I think it fits is that I imagine he'd be making a habit of speaking English in public - especially in video game related situations. His fans are all over the world after all.
