  1. I think wurm needs a sign in the tutorial area that states " We are here to kill you, rob you of your time, and make you work to succeed with Your blood sweat and tears". Most of my skills I have gotten are from projects either personal or community. I have a friend from wurm that grinds non-stop. He logs on and off at random times grinding and hoping for rares to add to his collection of rares THIS IS NOT a normal way wurm should be played it should be more along the lines of when building my deed up help my neighbors on occasion and be nice to newbies. A lot of the skill grinding and needing really massive skills is the Pvp side of things. They are the master skill grinders as each level they get they have an advantage they can use in the never ending wars with their neighbors. In Pve its more about what you can make then an advantage over people. Also you forget that ones that did Real Money Trading that grinding skills made you bucks. Some Eg: If i wanted to sell just crap bricks i could get 2 silver per 1k (lets say ql 20-50) But if I had some really nice bricks like 75ql or higher I could get 3 silver depending on the buyer. Higher Weapon skill making ability meant I could charge for Improvements to 90 or 95 and a lot of people made bank. People with high farming (95+) got insane yields and sold crops for 1 silver a 1000 all day long. Also Trade chat is a joke, you can spam stuff for hours and get no response as a buyer or seller. All of this silver you made could be sold to people for REAL MONEY. You could sell your character for REAL MONEY you could buy a character you wanted for REALMONEY. Trust me PVP made this game a crap ton of money even though I never got into it. Yep there was TONS AND TONS of greed and underhandedness and Bias that took place at all levels. And steam does not allow it so thus it had to die. So the current wurm model we have now is NOTHING like what it started like. Its literally like a whole new game when it comes to buying and selling things as the silver just sits there really. I can tell you that I play xanadu and at the times I play we have 40-60 on. For a map as massive as it is that is PATHETIC. Half of those are alts and about 8 of us talk in freedom chat and that's it. I talked to a guy from exodus last night he had 9 on. Went to release they had 23 on and one guy said he had 8 alts on..so..yeah. Wurm has been used so far for Pvp cash grab and WU cash grab and now a pretty healthy Steam cash grab ( im waiting for an epic release) for another cash grab. I think this cow is gonna run out of milk soon and just keel over and die and like EA does to its games they just retire it and dont care and move on the next one. If I had the winning lotto numbers Id save wurm but I don't . So I give it prob 5 more years or alternating versions of cash grabs before we get the thanks for playing have nice life goodbye forever text when we log in one day.
  2. Im going to NEcro this sucker cause i just got kicked off my caravel 20+ times sailing in open water..and cart coming out of mine and wagon. We going to call this a feature now? Multiple people in Ca chat saying its going on with them to. Was there a fix for it i did not see a dev response?
  3. I got off Wurm one day with its all or nothing forward movement.. Hopped in the car.. guess what..don't try wurm in a real car..mmmhmmm
  4. Great fun was tough fight. Maintenance forced a Sac close but all had fun TIll next week mighty warriors !!
  5. I think they call that upper graph either a landslide down a hill or a plane diving into a runway.
  6. I feel like this thread is just entertaining somebody that got bored and wrote a TLDR just to get attention and be entertained. The constant answering of a question with a question is a classic deflection technique . Gathering tons of information to be used in whatever case in the future. I think your better off talking to Gm's and Dev's as this thread won't change a thing about alts. Much ado about noting as they say.
  7. Although I appreciate the effort you made that massive incredible wall of text just popped the TLDR and I skimmed it. Alts and I have 2 are used for these primary reasons. My mag priest as I rebuild my canal and help a friend. With over 400 tiles collapsed and mined back out to new specifications . My secondary right hand man. IF i need ribbons made or nails or digging or mining or other then main activities I am doing he is the go to guy. Tonight it was great having two characters make support beams and cut the time down ALOT. Some history when Xanadu came out I ended up running two alliances. Big ones with 20+ people and deeds. Trying to get people together to finish a road or project or canal or anything was a ROYAL PAIN IN THE ASS. Yes i used a bad word. People play a game to relax and grind and build things they like not kowtow to every need driven player that has overwhelming needs. More often then not they are doing little to learn how to fish per say they just keep asking for more free fish. A years premium for all three accounts with some silver thrown in is about $300 bucks. Also 4 additional accounts for sermons so $32 more there. My friend also has 6 accounts so we got together for sermon groups so I could get 100 Faith and she could get priest-ed and growing. It works great if you ask me. Wurm gets more money to stay around. If people want to do community stuff they can some do some don't Also the flexibility of have a priest on hand to summon you back from a Rift or Summon people to it is fantastic. He just stands there and waits for you No other commitments. At this point its much ado about something that will never change as long as it supports wurm financially and people enjoy using alts. There is a very long list of other more pressing problems from what I can see.
  8. Use it on nothing. Just troll people and say you have it. Cant think of what to do with it. And drive whales with money and money people nuts. Talk about it constantly. Post pictures of it and wonder what its worth.
  9. So one question to be asked is how does having Scale and Drake at its current rarity and cost affect cash flow into the game. IF a full scale set is x gold and a rare is x gold and people are buying silver in the store then Wurm would literally be slitting its financial throat in some way by making it easier to get. Rarity breeds whales or people with lots of disposable money they are willing to spend on the game. Wurm needs cash influx to maintain servers and pay the 1.33223442 people who actually get paid and the servers. Ok it might be 3 im guessing here. IN the past 2 weeks i went to two public slayings of dragons. I have to say watching a dragon getting killed is about as exciting as imping a rope tool to get fine carp to build a wagon. ITS BORING. And I watched it happen twice. On the second dragon I helped build the ramp to the mine and watched them bait it into the mine. Shaker the tile. Drop dirt. Summon the guy out and done. 24 hours later open door and dragon pops. out. People crowd on dragon and you hear 2,000 thuds per second of glances and no pens. Couple nukes. 2minutes later its dead. Then everybody gets blood worth about 2 silver for imbues ( which I did not know but got the ever living crap nerfed out of them) and whatever. People spam trade paying .50-.70 copper per .001kg. People with high Pas get paid big bucks to imp the hide to 95 + rare and make bank. Bank being people paying RL money for silver in game to imp the scale. Buy the scale. Resell the scale. Does wurm really want to mess with a system where people pay $100's of real life dollars funding the game . You can talk about alternate systems of doing it all you want but you got to consider the influx for cash for Wurm and I think this cow MOOOS alot.
  10. and new day down again?
  11. I do not know the server status seems to show up. I know we been getting some hefty 3 minute super lag spikes in the last week. Also that login server was getting moved or moved. Throws hands up.
  12. This is ground control to Major tom.. Do you copy ( static ) do you copy (login server cracking hissing popping) do you click...connection terminated.
