  1. ROS Cast 9/15

    Heads-up for all forum dwellers, ROS was cast 12~ minutes ago.
  2. Ah, I did miss that one as I was looking in the comment chain you quoted* in that post. I think it's incredibly misleading to have stated they showed interest in a person, then linked a comment that was not the comment the staff showed interest in but rather a separate one which does not have any sort of staff approval. For those curious, the post which the site's staff thanked was written by a person with obvious anti-wurm motives, but contained nothing that Platyna quoted and was rather a good bit of helpful information and a few stories thrown in. Actually quoting the relevant content would be too much text as the person went very in depth in their explanations, so I encourage you to go read the actual post the staff thanked. As for your disbelief in their honesty, nothing can be done about that. If you really want to think they're out for you, then to you they're going to be out for you.
  3. Venomous? The absolute most scathing line in his two articles to me seems to be and that does not come close to something I would assign enough intentional, predetermined malice to call venomous. If you can't find any review that casts any other game into a as-negative light I'd offer these pieces to you in which he does more than just call them confusing, complex, or obtuse; https://massivelyop.com/2020/06/09/choose-my-adventure-eve-online-is-already-a-bad-time/ https://massivelyop.com/2019/07/02/choose-my-adventure-tera-and-the-argument-in-favor-of-just-okay-gaming/ And especially this piece which I get the feeling you may have glossed over; https://massivelyop.com/2018/05/11/choose-my-adventure-ultima-online-we-didnt-need-to-do-this/ The only people sabotaging Wurm's reputation is us.
  4. I'm curious as to what you mean by the staff of the site seemed to appreciate this person's comments. The only staff interaction on the articles seems to be a like to a poem piece written, and correcting you about the intention of the article as a whole. On that note, it's important to remember what exactly that article's intention was. As stated by the staff in response to your comment on the article; The authour did not maliciously blind himself from information to cast Wurm in a negative light as a few here seem to believe, rather he intentionally went in blind as to assess the game from the perspective of a brand new player trying to figure things out for themselves with a bit of the site's community input. This was not done just to Wurm Online either, as the staff of the website points out. This is a series which is long running and takes this same approach to multiple games.
  5. I think the quick and simple of it is don't verbally attack people, even if you don't agree with what they're saying. I understand the frustrating coming from someone not quite getting that hook-in about a game we all love, but the reaction on both that site and the forums seriously paint the Wurm community in an immature light. Even if someone is in the wrong that's never a green light for being toxic.
  6. I think we all know that Wurm can be highly unintuitive even at the best of times, and starting out new trying to learn everything can be difficult. Especially when trying to go at it with a sense-of-discovery-first attitude like the author of this piece did; Instead of grilling the author over not engaging in the variant of play we have all become accustomed to over years of experience with Wurm this is a good opportunity to see through the eye of a person not accustomed to Wurm or the games that require a similar mindset. As for the insulting posters, rly?
  7. Islet De La Croix [2000, 3415] Thank ya thank ya!
  8. La Croix Harbour at 509, 750 can be removed. I disbanded it a bit ago
  9. (509, 751) La Croix Harbour Good work with the map effort, it's a huge contribution to the community!
  10. I like the concept as a new path of knowledge or ring enchant, so long as the descriptions of difficulty are vague, similar to what OP suggested, I would +1 this.
  11. I'm sad to hear of your situation Ellie, but I would advise talking to some peeps to try and keep the nasty timers away. I've been mostly an on/off player for the exact reasons you said, whenever I try and play Wurm I start flattening out an area, or making a mine, and suddenly I find myself sitting there, hollowed out, wondering all sorts of negative things. However, this year when I came back to see the new Xandu server, I tried mingling a bit. Instead of settling out on a random mountain, I did it 20~ minutes away from a starting point, and with two awesome neighbors. Communication is key if you suffer from a wandering mind, and it can do wonders for ya
