  1. Eir

    It's the first time in more than 3 years that I check up on Wurm again, just to find this sad news! And to write this post is the only reason I actually logged into the forums. I've known Eir from when Wurm was still "Gold" - before the crash in whatever year it was, I don't remember, but it was before the Wild / Chaos Server - or whatever name it has nowadays. She's always been good, helpful and fair. She was a person to count on. I've no idea how old she was, but I hope she's lived a long and happy life!
  2. I have to admit, you're giving a few fair points there. But in the end you've just seen a few people come from WU. The question remains: how many WU players actually switch to WO? And how many WO players did switch to WU? I don't think most WO players actually need a huge community. I mean 90% of the population on the PvE servers have a deed of their own at a considerable size, just to be alone. Hence, WU servers are attractive.
  3. I like the fact that there is a WU stand-alone. I looked upon it with anger when it was released, but my RL changed so much lately that I had no time left to even play wurm and I don't see that changing any time soon. My premium subscription from Nov to May was an absolute waste since I didnt play. However, I sold out in March anyway. I haven't bought a WU copy yet, but should I ever return to Wurm I sure as hell won't pay a monthly fee anymore. Blaming WO's decline in player population cannot be solely blamed on WU though I think. From what I can see on the server graphs, players started leaving before the release of WU. It could be due to the announcement of WU though, who knows. But.. I still don't see how WU is supposed to attract any WO players. Lol. Who in his right mind would pay 96€ per year for premium vs. 27.99€ once and for all?
  4. Have to say, wurm is a game that has a monetary value to a lot of its players. Of course not everyone thinks this way, but you can buy a lot of accounts and items for either silver or real life currency. I, for instance, have lacked the time to play WO since November. A few weeks ago I decided it's time to sell off all my stuff while it's still worth anything. With the decline of subscriptions I saw potential buyers leave. With the money I earned by selling all my WO stuff I could buy over 60 copies of Wurm Unlimited. I still don't see any official WO strategy. What's there to make people stay, when they can buy WU once and play the game forever while they are limited to 4 months of premium in WO for the same money. I'd say there's absolutely no logic behind it.
  5. Here is my experience with digging: 1. Clay is far better for skillgain than dirt - I didnt test tar since I also had a need for lots of clay, so it was a nice coincidence. ^^ 2. low QL high CoC digging tool is the way to go And 3rd, which is why I say digging tool in the above: dredging seems to be better than digging with a shovel. So the way to go for me has always been to dredge clay. Besides flattening gives close to zero body stats while dredging / digging does give a fair amount.
  6. Sales closed for now. In contact with people for my last few silvers. Might have more in a day or two when the items from my auctions have been sold.
