  1. Home Annoyance

    The alarms in the NL would still freak me out. It was always like "oh crap what time is i- oh it's noon, we're not dying" Better yet is that government emergency system that sends a loud message to your phone (NL Alert). The government can send regional emergency messages like during forest fires and such, but phones typically make a very loud sound when they get them. Sometimes they test the system and everyone freaks out about it. It was great being in class at uni and hearing all the phones go off.
  2. ...this is all because of one rare loom? It'd probably be quicker to make another rare loom than to resolve this petty argument
  3. Home Annoyance

    Here in the outskirts of Berlin, there is a football stadium with a lot of faithful fans. You can tell they're good supporters, because they spray paint their club name everywhere to remind everyone they're the best. Every other weekend or so, they play a game here. I don't follow their games, but I know when they play because there my entire neighborhood gets surrounded by hundreds of police officers, riot cars are parked everywhere, traffic grinds to a halt, drunk people start singing songs and all local public transport becomes useless because you can't fit in.
  4. For the first point, can't you use the WL/BL itself? I don't think that has anything to do with the healthiness of the game, because converting between kingdoms is a rare event.
  5. Thanks for the offer, but I don't want to end up like your friends
  6. I don't think those bans are as common as you make it seem. If all your friends have been banned for toxic behavior, that probably says a thing or two about your friends.
  7. Switched my Shares

    Like Malena said, the company that bought the shares is just trying to make more money. Their motivation is to make the game better and thereby increase the subscribers/revenue. Maybe it will be better, maybe not, we don't know. We do know is that the way it was before wasn't working, so there isn't a whole lot more to lose. There's really nothing more to be said about this, because we know so little about this company and how it operates, except Rolf's word about them having a hands off attitude. Everything else is just pointless speculation.
  8. Very sad to hear. She made an incredible contribution to this game. Many things that we take for granted were built or influenced by her. Besides normal game features, she also modernized a lot of the CM/GM tools and significantly improved their ability to do their work. Wurm would have been a completely different game without her. She and her work will not be forgotten. RIP
  9. To me this just shows that the suggested minimum is pretty good. The only "safe" locating that could happen is a locate between Kronos and Carlsborg, which I don't think is a big issue considering they're both deeds that are bordering the no-build zone of hota on the northern part. I think that if we had a 2048x2048 map, a 200 tile locate would work fine. On a smaller map, I think no locating at all would be perfectly fine. On a 4096x4096 map, having no locate soul just sounds like anti-pvp to me.
  10. Well that’s just plain wrong...
  11. Personally, I think the "locate them from deed using the priest" is a dumb thing and this locate change removed that. However, the main problem is if you're chasing anybody. Say you run across someone in local and then they disappear. If they run away in a random direction, you have roughly a minute to locate them. After that they're just completely gone. Any element of tracking is gone and it's pointless to bother looking on such a huge map unless you know where they are going. Having a slightly larger locate area means you can actually chase down people without letting people sit on deed scanning for people. A 500 tile range is from one side of hota, to the other side's end of build zone. That's enough to track people and not enough to scan from deed, which is seemingly what this change tried to achieve.
  12. Currently there is a maximum of 200 tiles range for Locate Soul spell on Epic. On a 4096x4096, I think this is WAY too small. To give a perspective, that's half the width or height of the hota zone. This means if you can locate people, they're already close enough to hit your local in a minute or maybe two. I suggest a distance of roughly 500-1000 tiles, which is approximately 1/8th to a 1/4th across the width or height of the map. This still means you can't "scan" for pvp by locating everybody you know, but it means the spell is actually useful.
  13. He pvp'd with us yesterday on Elevation and got kills and didn't die. That alone makes it impossible that it's Wimble.
  14. I think the old system makes sense (if something is too difficult/easy, you won't learn much), but it's just boring and annoying. Making something logical doesn't always equal making something more fun. I guess many experienced players don't mind it so much, because they knew the tricks anyway. I think conceptually the new skilling system makes more sense too, but I haven't tried skilling enough to find out if it's really better. In my short experience, it seemed a bit easier but not noticably faster.
